She’s 4 Years Old!

Salt Mama Studio is officially 4 years old! I think she’s been a part of me for a lot longer though – probably as long as I’ve been a Mama and I’ve loved every part of this wild ride. I’m incredibly proud of her (uh huh, my business is a “her”) and grateful to everyone […]

Unique Photography with Salt Mama Studio

The challenge of something new

The freedom to create something new is the driving force behind the Magic of Christmas sessions. At the end of each year I say I’m not doing them again…..but come August the following year, I’m thinking about what’s next. What’s different? What hasn’t been seen before? (And I do them again…lol) I love being able […]

Tweens and Online Popularity

It’s been an interesting few weeks! My Miss has just become a tween and has entered the online gaming world with Minecraft (under our very watchful eye) which has led to some very interesting conversations. We’ve been talking about online friends vs. real life friends, followers, social media and likes…and how this affects our day-to-day […]

Studio Photography vs On Location Photography

Why would you pick one over the other? I’ve got a few thoughts.  Let’s explore them together.   To me, On Location Family Photography is all out fun. We pick a beautiful location (usually somewhere special to your family), meet on the day and get busy playing games that evoke particular expressions. The kids get […]
