I am so happy you've stopped by! I am Jennie Contreras of Lotta Love Photo | Let me tell you a little about me! I moved from New Hampshire to Aspen in 1997. The beauty that surrounds me every single day and the ease of access to everything outdoors is what has kept me here. I feel extremely blessed to live in a place that is filled with so much awe and wonder! I have 3 littles of my own, who happen to make great photography subjects as well. I feel so blessed to have captured each and every stage of their lives through photographs and hope to do the same for YOU! My love of photography sparked when I was only 12 years old. It is my creative outlet, my joy and my passion. My goal is to capture each individual's unique personality, one of a kind expressions and special moments that you want to remember for a lifetime.
A Typical Session: At your home, a favorite park or at one of our favorite locations.... you choose! We'll work together to determine the best time of day for your portrait session. We'll keep in mind nap times for little ones, feedings for newborns, and will work around the individual needs of you and your family.
Online Proofing: Approximatly one to two weeks after your session, an online slideshow will be published. Feel free to pass along the link to anyone who would be interested in viewing your portraits. The gallery will be live for 2 weeks. Once it has expired, you can extend or re-activate it one time only for an additional week. All ordered images will be archived for up to 2 years.
Clothing: For portraits involving more then one person, it is best to wear clothing that compliments each other. Solid colors, textures, dark jeans... but stay away from clothing with busy patterns or large logos. Colors, layers and accessories can be fun, but don't overdo it! Think about coordinating, but not matching. If the weather and season permits, barefoot is best. Shoes on children can tend to date a photo. Feel free to bring as many changes of clothing as you would like.You may bring along any props that you think might be fun; a basket for a newborn baby, a special swaddling blanket, favorite stuffed animal, a fun hat, birthday cake, umbrella, a tutu, a small chair... be creative!
Newborns: As far as newborns, the younger the baby the better. Babies under 2 weeks old are less likely to be disturbed while sleeping, they are more movable and less likely to have baby acne, which may develop around 3 weeks of age.
