Happy New Year| Leslie Byrd Photography| Ellijay Georgia Photography| GA Photographer

Thankful for The Old…

2016 brought the official start of Leslie Byrd Photography.

I had an engagement session, two weddings, several portrait sessions, a few family sessions (including one precious newborn), a session with a local band, and a redesign of my website. I am now on Instagram, I’m currently verified on Google, and I’m slowly getting noticed on ViewBug.com and Twitter.

Like most photographers, I have had a slow start. But I am enjoying much of the process, and growing so much along the way. There have been several steps forward, several steps back…and I am SO INCREDIBLY THANKFUL for all who have taken steps with me along the way. You all are amazing, and I cannot wait to see what this next year holds!

Anticipating the New…

Thank you, 2016, and here’s to anticipating whatever 2017 brings!

I am hoping to continue with sessions throughout this new year; I have several ideas in mind, and I look forward to meeting new friends and clients and helping to capture many more memories. I look for opportunities and inspiration everywhere!

And a FREE GIFT for you!

Speaking of opportunities and inspiration, I would like to offer you this FREE DOWNLOAD of my New Year/Celebration Photo Tile Template; just click the link and download to open and edit in Photoshop. Let me know how it works for you, and feel free to email me, or comment with any questions. I am pretty sure this is my first available download, so I hope it works for you, and that you all like it!

You can get it HERE.

Happy New Year!
From Leslie Byrd Photography!

Holiday Freebie!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas yesterday! I spent the morning in the mountains with my littles, sipping on hot coffee and watching them excitedly open their presents. (I got a few, too, unexpectedly!) We then took a nice two-hour drive south to visit some of my family for the evening, where we had our annual dinner and played some fun games, before the babies went to stay with their dad and step-family for the remainder of the holiday week.

All-in-all it’s been a nice and eventful holiday, full of love and fun!

I’ve been keeping busy on homework; as some of you know I am currently in school, taking massage therapy courses, and I am trying to get ahead while we are on break. But I am still doing my best to keep the creativity and take some time to myself as well! Photography and art has always been my passion, and I do my best to dedicate at least a few hours each week to this outlet.

Holiday Freebie!

I just need to take a moment, and give a shout out to Photobacks for providing their fans and customers with these awesome FREE snow globe template downloads! To the best of my knowledge, they are still obtainable as of this post; go and get them now while they are still available! And please go to their Facebook page and tell them we sent you!

Christmas Snow Globe| Leslie Byrd Photography

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

What has been your favorite Christmas or holiday freebie? Please share in the comments, as well as your snowglobe creations; we’d love to see them! Happy Holidays!!!

A Little Gander at Geese in Autumn

Ellijay Georgia, Nature, Photography

Fall Flock-66| Nature Photography| Leslie Byrd Photography Ellijay GAFall Flock

Warm sun…
A cool breeze…
Yellow, orange, and brown foliage float and swirl around gentle sparkling waters.

And a flock of geese find retreat in the North Georgia Mountains on this city park’s riverway.

Here they gather to drink and rest, and, often, to feast upon the birdseed thrown to them by our local town residents or seasonal visitors. It is an absolutely peaceful and beautiful sight. And for those toting a camera as I was this particular day, it is also an awesome opportunity for some gorgeous nature shots of this exquisite and graceful waterfowl.

Fall Flock-1| Nature Photography| Leslie Byrd Photography Ellijay GA

Water Winged Beauty

A sight almost every bird-watching photographer tries to capture time and time again – the span of open wings from these gorgeous geese.

And I was lucky enough to get several of these shots!

I hope you all enjoy  the serenity and beauty of these lovely animals!

Leslie Byrd Photography| Child Portrait| Ellijay, GeorgiaA Crisp, Autumn Day at the Park

It started like many others… The brilliant round orb, high overhead, the cloudless blue sky and gentle breezes. The air was dry, but the cool temperature refreshing. It was a perfect day for portraiture and play. And I made promises of play-ground time in trade for just a few lovely (and cooperative) posed shots.

As usual, there was not much bargaining actually needed; the green grass and colorful foliage beckoned. And my children are fairly used to my wanting pictures during specific holidays and seasons – the process is now usually quick and familiar; I have them well trained. Ha!

I just love their sweet smiles, their joyful faces, and the love they so often share! And it all really came through in these images!

We picked which side of the park to work and play on, and settled for the first entrance by the main intersection- a section of the park we rarely frequent. It turned out to be the perfect choice!

Natural Props, and Location, Location, Location!

I’ve mentioned it before, and it bears repeating- my favorite thing regarding outdoor sessions, is the never-ending supply of natural props and inspiration!

Almost immediately upon stepping out of our vehicle, we saw this lovely little stump that made the perfect stool for sitting poses! It worked out wonderfully for these Fall Portraits!

When outdoors, remember to keep your eyes open for any interesting or useful natural element around to include and incorporate into your session! Having a creative eye can work wonders for the amateur, hobbyist, and professionals alike, or even for those just starting out… as well as for the client lending a suggestion to their photographer! Parents, family members, friends – don’t forget these are your sessions, too, and you may see something in that bridge or river bank that your photographer didn’t notice or see! Always be ready with suggestions!

Playtime & A Nice Surprise!

After we got in several awesome shots, I let the kids play on one of the playgrounds for a while. There was sliding, climbing, flipping, hanging on the monkey bars… They had a lot of fun! And then we went exploring! We saw a tiny clearing where part of the river could be seen, and we took a few photos in front of it, and then we took a walk further down the river to the very end of the park.

We came to a spot we had never visited before- a circular sidewalk met with natural rock and tree-root steps, down the edge of the river. At the bank we saw a large flock of geese, all across the rock and shallow water, bathing and searching for food, relaxing, swimming, you name it… We quietly sat down at the river-edge and observed these gorgeous birds for quite some time. After a while, the geese decided we were not a threat and came closer to us; we used the opportunity for some photographs.  A nice man came by with bird feed and we were also able to feed the geese and a few other nearby birds. The scene was so gorgeous and serene! All in all it was a beautiful, fun, and rewarding day!

Stay Tuned!

Coming soon I will have a new post showcasing some of the awesome geese images I captured this past weekend along the river – be on the lookout for them!

I also challenge you all to go out and capture your best outdoor Autumn images! Submit them to me using my email – lesliebydphotography@gmail.com – along with a little description; you may just see them in a post in the near future!

Enjoy this gorgeous weather and the beauty that surrounds you! Spend time with your family & friends, and make the best of every moment! Thank you all for taking the time to stop in and to look at my work. I appreciate each and every one of you!

Presenting Your Presentation Package

Photography

Choosing the right outfits, meeting with your photographer, smiling (perhaps awkwardly), and going through a myriad of poses… The scheduling, the payments…

Investing in Photo Sessions can sometimes be extremely frustrating, as well as extremely creative and fun.

But after you have gone though all of these steps in creating memories, then…

CONGRATULATIONS!

If you have ordered a Session Package from Leslie Byrd Photography, than you already have received, or shortly will be, one of these beautiful Presentation Boxes!

We want to work with you, not to simply turn over great images, but to create an experience; and we believe each step of the process should be as special as the memories we are helping you to create.

So with Leslie Byrd Photography, each Photo Session ends with a personal Presentation Package, delivered to you as a special gift- a thank you for allowing us to work with you in providing quality images and individualized service.

What Can You Expect in Your Presentation Package?

  • Inside every package is a personalized thank you card- we appreciate your choosing us to capture your special moments!
  • You will also find several business cards- keep a card for yourself, and feel free to pass along the remaining cards; each business card contains a loyalty card on it’s reverse side.
  • Your images will be in your package as well- they come on a wooden USB flash drive, nestled inside a wood box. Or provide your own USB, which will be carefully wrapped in bubble wrap to protect it from any damage until it reaches your hands.
  • Enjoy a special treat or baked good in each package, and a complimentary surprise gift! It’s our way of saying we care!
  • Each Presentation Package comes in a white box, approximately 5X7 inches, and is lined with a decorative tissue paper. The box is labeled with a Leslie Byrd Photography seal, and tied with a beautiful decorative ribbon.
