I love to do maternity sessions for families expecting their first baby. Look at this couple, do you think they are excited? Congratulations to them on the birth of their beautiful new baby. I can't wait to meet her. To see more of my maternity work check out the anticipation section of my website at www.mettlerportraits.com

Last year we headed to chicago for destination senior pictures. This year we added Ohio and 2 times visited the prison where they filmed the movie Shawshank Redemption. Next year we will be heading to Sunny California. If you are a junior this year and would like a senior session complete with memories to last a lifetime be sure to sign up for our mailing list and "like" us at the Mettler Portraits Facebook page.

This past Saturday my sister got married. Even though she knows I DO NOT SHOOT WEDDINGS she thought I might for her. Thankfully I had the good sense to say no. I leave that to those who can think well under pressure and remember to get a shot of the mother of the bride. That's right I did bring my camera but forgot to get any pictures of the mother of the bride, you know, my mother. I am sharing my favorite shot of the day.
I had been looking forward to the wedding for so many reason's one of which was having our whole family together. I had the chance to get my camera all set up and grab my dad to get a picture of us. I'm sharing these also, mostly because they gave me a chuckle. One of my favorite comments that I will get from time to time is how my camera takes such great pictures. Here is my dad's first shot.
Let's try this one more time Dad. My camera doesn't focus for you. P.S. Don't ever tell a photographer their camera takes great pictures, lol!

Go to their website and blog.
Do they have them or do they just have a facebook page? This could be a sign that they are very new to the business.
When is the last time they posted a new session on their blog? Some photographer's post more than others but what you should look for is the same faces appearing over and over. If you live with someone your bound to get a few good shots every now and again. It's not like anybody is wasting money on film. Crabby face? Delete! These digital days a working professional photographer is probably posting something somewhere. Make sure you see a lot of different faces and you like what you see.
