Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which makes people start thinking of what to gift their loved ones. This beautiful lady contacted me asking for a fine art portrait photography session so she could gift her husband a framed portrait of herself. I suggested a petite session as I knew it would be the perfect fit for what she was needing. Quick with just a few images. It fit into her busy life as a mom of three while allowing her to keep things top secret.
She chose to wear this dress from the Yvonne Niemann Photography wardrobe. It photographs beautifully, is very flattering, is super comfy and coordinates with the surroundings outdoors. Great example of what to wear for your fine art portrait photography session, either by yourself or with your family. When thinking of what to wear for portraits, it is important to think of your surroundings so that you don’t clash. I am always here to help you with those decisions, so you can be ensured that you are taken of when it comes to choosing your wardrobe.
We took a few portraits indoors, but I knew that this dress would photograph beautifully outside in Winter’s beauty. The wooded trail is great year round. This time of year, there are less leaves on the trees, but the subdued colors are beautiful and brings attention straight to the subject being photographed. I love how all the colors work together in this portrait.
I am sure her husband will be happy with his present this year. Sometimes it is hard trying to figure out what to get the man in your life and this is a great option for the man who has everything.
If you are still on the hunt for that perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your loved one, it’s not too late to get on the calendar. Contact me today for details. If you would prefer to give the gift of portraiture for another time in the year, no problem. Yvonne Niemann Photography offers gift certificates as well.

“And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” ~ T.S. Eliot
I had the great honor to photograph this beautiful family over the weekend in St. Louis. Such a fun family portrait giving a glimpse into their lives. The eldest son was not in the mood for photos, so we ended up playing a lot of games and I used a lens on my camera that made him not realize that he was getting his picture taken. We were able to get some really cute lifestyle images.
I have been photographing this family since their first son was in mommy’s belly and it has been such a joy watching their family grow and documenting important milestones. Their youngest child is so laid back and just goes with the flow. He doesn’t even seem to mind his brother messing with him or wrestling him to the ground. They are going to have SO much fun growing up together. Mom and dad are so in love with each other and their beautiful sons. You can tell that they truly enjoy being in each other’s company and experiencing all that this lifetime has to offer!
Mom did a great job choosing their wardrobe for their family portrait. They coordinate really nicely together and their surroundings. Luckily, things cooled off enough for them to wear what they did. Two days prior, it was 90 degrees! Not sure how much you can tell from this picture, but if you look closely, you will see that the baby’s undershirt has gray, navy, green and white in it, which pulls together all the colors that are in the rest of the family’s outfits. Great way to coordinate everyone in an effortless looking way without being matchy matchy. Great example of what to wear for a fall family portrait!
Fall sessions are almost all filled. If you would like to get on the calendar, contact professional family photographer, Yvonne Niemann, today. One more date available in October here in the Athens, GA area, two openings on October 25 in San Diego, and just a handful left in November and beginning of December.

Over the weekend I traveled to St. Louis for destination fall portraits. This child photography session took place in a beautiful field full of the season’s abundant beauty. When I got off the plane, I grabbed my rental car and did a quick location scout. This was the first place I stopped and my heart just sang, which told me that it was the PERFECT location for fall photo sessions. Not a lot of trees were boasting their jewel tones of Autumn in the area, but this field was showing off it’s colors and charm wonderfully.
I absolutely adore this lil’ man. I have been photographing him since he was born three and a half years ago for his newborn photography session at his home. Every year I am just amazed with his growth, achievements and blooming personality! He loves adventure and this location was perfect for that. When we arrived, there were deer grazing their evening meal, which was a special treat for this little boy to witness. This field is actually the residence of a family of deer. I happened upon in on a random hike almost 10 years ago and I am happy to see that this is still their home after all these years. Mr. R had fun looking for all the deer and the clues that they leave behind. He had great fun playing games and cuddling with his parents too. Such a sweet family and always an honor to be chosen to document their special bonds and family dynamic.
Mom did a great job picking out their outfits for their fall photography session. She chose shades of tan, ecru and white. Perfect for keeping the focus on the family members connections without distractions. The texture of their sweaters and little details from buttons and accessories gave just enough interest. Their wardrobe is timeless, which is great so that portraiture artwork displayed in the home doesn’t look dated over the years. The coors will also work wonderfully with their home decor. So important to think about where your images will display and your style aesthetic in your home when picking out the color scheme of your outfits for portraits. You really don’t want things to clash.
If you would like portraits like this for yourself, I know of some local fields here in the Athens, GA area that are very similar to this child photography session. Not many openings left this Fall, so contact me as soon as possible to get on the calendar. firstname.lastname@example.org | 706.713.0676
