Friday Introductions

Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by. I wanted to introduce myself for those of you who are new around here.  I’m the owner and photographer behind Kaitlin Roten Photography.  That’s me, you’ll probably see me with black thick-rimmed glasses, but I’m self-conscious about them so I don’t usually wear them in photos ūüôā 

Here are some things you’ll need to know behind the camera: 


1. I’m a photographer but I’m also a mom to two blue eyed kids who let me take their photos so graciously. I also might bribe them with mini-marshmallows

2. While pretty photos are really nice (and I do hope you think my images are beautiful!) I think that the photographs of you and your family, when hung up on your wall,  help you love and appreciate those in your life better. Those are the tangible things we will pass down to our kids – so here’s to making prints, not files.  

3. Right now I’m trying to eat spinach at every single meal…it’s going well so far.  I also love Kombucha.  I’m not really sure why people call me crunchy ūüôā But I really don’t think I am.

What to wear Wednesdays: Rent the Runway

Personally this week I’ve been on CLOUD 9! It’s been such a productive hustle over here. ¬†Before I got started in my own business I would watch the hours click by on the clock just waiting for my last art class of the day to go home so that I could go home. ¬†And I definitely lived for the holidays. ¬†But now? I work every single day. ¬†I totally wouldn’t change it though because I LOVE IT! It definitely has it’s perks….but not going lie, it also has it’s disadvantages. ¬†Being an entrepreneur is often lonesome and really really fearful!

But like I said this week has been awesome!!!! My highlights have been getting my new style guide hot off the press, launching my first and awesome Family Rep Program, AND (this one is SO BIG!!) two VERY well known photographers recognizing my photography work – I literally squealed and did a happy dance – actually I’m still doing that.

I also was REALLY excited because a few weeks ago I wrote about how red was the new color for Fall 2017. Then this popped over into my inbox….

Have you heard of rent the runway? If you’ve read my style guide (which all my client get upon booking!) then you know that I LOVE IT! It’s a great way to not spend a ton of money on gorgeous runway looking dresses to look like a BILLION dollars for your photo session. And look at that red dress?! You can find just the right red dress for you right here!¬†

I’d love to see this dress paired with a crimson tie for your guy, floral with crimson hues dress for your little girl, and deep red suspenders and bow tie from London Jae Apparel¬†

 

That’s it for now! If you’d like to read other “what to wear” ideas go to the top and just search “what to wear”. See you next week!

What to wear Wednesdays: What’s in the fall

Life is sort of back to normal around here and that means WHAT TO WEAR WEDNESDAYS is BACK!

I already mentioned (even though it totally doesn’t feel like Fall is around the corner here in North Dallas) I’m going to be talking about what to wear to your fall sessions. I’m super super excited to announce that my October is fully booked for session but I do have a few spots left as of today for November.

If you’d like to schedule a session in November you can totally get your photos back in time to order Holiday Cards, prints, or products for yourself or family members. ¬†I’m loving this heirloom locket necklace – it would make a great gift!

Ok back to What to Wear…. here are some things that are in style for the fall (according to Elle Magazine guide – because I am not that cool to make these things up)…

  • The color red
  • Couch floral patterns (also called micro florals)
  • Deconstructed shirts (think cold shoulder)
  • High collars
  • Long skirts or dresses
  • Thick belts

That’s a lot to work with!

 

I’ve found 2 awesome red dresses that I think would look great on camera for your fall session:

Venus Cold Shoulder Dress
Venue Pleated Flare Dress

Charlotte Russe Floral Mesh Maxi Skirt $26– I think this is a great option to use the colors that I usually recommend and try to have a little bit of the fall colors

Floral Ruffle-Trim Wrap Skirt $29 

Floral Tulle Overlay Skirt $27

Floral Midi Wrap Skirt $15
