Baby's First Year

Hi friends, in years past my Baby's First Year Program has left my clients wanting more!!  I can't tell you how may of them wanted an album!  They wanted a beautiful way to have the photographs we shot from throughout the whole year.  Yes, they have beautiful wall portraits dotting their walls, and frames in the book shelves, but what showcases their little one's growth?  

So I complied!

Also, I get tons of inquiries from new clients who want a more modest endeavor... just sessions!  

So I complied!

I now have for you two choices: Baby's First Year the full program, and her lighter sister,  Baby's First Year the economy program.  Each include 5 studio sessions, a Facebook Disc from every session, and a discount of 10% off any Collections from throughout the year.  The fabulous additions with the Full Program includes, the stunning flush-mount album, the five series marking the growth throughout they year, a 20 inch wall portrait, and birth announcements.  You can more easily compare the two at this link.  You'll see that BOTH programs are super duper deals!

I am happy to collect one lump sum, but i find that it is a little easier on us both if the $ transition is a little more gradual, so I spread fees over twelve months.

You'll like the program!  You'll LOVE your photographs from this special first year!

I'm totally exited about these debut sessions... yes that's right, I opened an studio!  After 4 (ish) great years shooting on-location only, we've taken the plunge!
You'll definitely want to sign up for these first sessions! $125 session fee includes the session AND a 10 inch square print that is framed and matted!!  It's a super deal!
Here's Rule # 1 for preparing your kid for the session... Take that silly word "cheese" and throw it out the window.  I promise to NOT ask your kid to give me that strained, toothy, fake, grin.  Your kiddo will get to see me and his mom and dad act like complete goof balls!!  YEP, you should sign up just on how much FUN we're going to have!!
Call me for details and to reserve your session!!  859-685-8516
Like us on Facebook and stay updated on these sessions..

Twin baby boys from back in December...

Saturday, March 5, 2011


Today we launched our first ever Facebook contest. The contest is searching for the "best kid ever." Yes, its a photo contest, but unlike many many photo contests. A short and sweet word-portrait of the kiddo is submitted along with mom's favorite image that I photographed.

I'm not after the little models, or perfect little barbie dolls (or bratz I guess is more current). I want moms to show off the shining character of their little ones. I want to hear what makes their kid interesting, and special, how they make their parents laugh and how much the entertain grandma and grandpa.

In a Facebook world of APPEARANCE IS EVERYTHING, I am rebelling against just that. Appearance is virtually NOTHING. I know the term "appearance is just skin deep" is a bit cliche, but is is so true... Looks are merely a shallow veneer on top of the masterpiece that God created. Lets show THAT off!

Woodworking at its finest

I am thrilled to my core to have this art piece in my collection...

This platter is a cross-section through the root-ball of a California redwood tree. Anywhere in a tree where a branch splits off from its trunk, or where roots join to form the trunk, the wood grain is curly and curvy and irregular and flat-out BEAUTIFUL. The grain is a rich, saturated, red, and appears almost pearlescent as the grain turns around itself.

The artist created the piece to be subtly concave on the top, while maintaining a flat side on the reverse for variety. The concavity prevents the subjects of this photograph (the babies) from "competing" with the wood for the focal-point of the finished photograph. The light from the left side will fall only on the small, irregular wood edge, then the babies' faces, which are the highlight of the photograph.

The finish was chosen to be glossy enough that the deep colors of the grain would not be muted, yet not mirror-like so that I don't labor over avoiding uninvited reflections in the piece.

All-in-all, it's wonderful.

The piece was crafted by the one and only, Ed Brown, MY DAD!
Thanks, Dad, for your time and energy you poured into this platter. I love it love it love it! And I know my clients already do too. I also can't wait to enter this in competition! It's perfect. Thank you!

Well it's about time, right!?

You can now register with Robin Allen Photography for family and friends to purchase credit toward your newborn photographs! Moms who have already scheduled their newborn session are automatically enrolled in the Baby Registry Program.

HOW DOES IT WORK? The mother to be doesn’t need to trek around a store and scan her desired items; instead, a credit is build up with Robin Allen Photography and will be used toward the newborn session’s prints or products. It’s as if Mom is given lots of gift certificates to spend.

Family and Friends choose their gift amount in increments of $50. They simply call us at 859-685-8516 and let us know their gift amount. We can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover Card over the phone, or they are welcome to drop a check in the mail to us.

TO THE GENEROUS GIVER… If there is at least a week until the baby shower you may wish to order a personalized gift certificate for the mom-to-be to open! This works beautifully if you are planning on giving her a picture frame along with her gift certificate! Just let me know what size frame you have chosen and we’ll order that size. These photographic gift certificates are $10 and include shipping or delivery to you.

branching out

Every so often I leave the studio and branch out in to the rest of the clients home. (By studio, I mean where the lights are set up) This was particularly awesome last Tuesday because of how awesome Joy and Kurt's house is! It felt so warm and eclectic. So it only made sense to pick up the couple's colors in the photographs. Art FITS when is looks as though the room was decorated around the piece of art. This was definitely a success. I can't wait to see what the finished products look like on the walls!
