Deana Levine Photography Wordless Wednesday with Linky

Every year James has his picture taken for school two times, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.  We have NEVER bought his school picture – ever.  He either sits there looking mad, refuses to do it, or poses in a way that makes it look like he is being tortured.  Recently we had a chance to see how a true professional works when we went to the studio of Deana Levine Photography.

One of my favorite things about her studio were her backgrounds.  The fabrics she had were all so unique and colorful.  I especially love the one she choose for James’ sitting.  She also had an amazing assortment of props – some old, some new, and all were different from what you normally find.  However, the most unique thing about Deana was her ability to connect with James and the way she brought him to life in her photography.

Deana made my son look like a professional model. It took her all of 40 minutes – start to finish to get the most stubborn 7 year old alive to do these poses.  We actually had a bunch of pictures done with him in that time frame – both indoors and outdoors.  Deana Levine Photography is located at 305 East College Ave, Decatur, GA 30030 and if you make an appointment from now until May28th you can save $50 off your sitting fee if you tell her you saw James’ pictures.  You can reach her at 404-748-4353 or email her at studio@deanalevine.com.

    (BTW, love the “or nearly human” next to the box, because you surely know that is how we moms feel lots of times.)

  20. Wow, she did a terrific job! I love the strong man pose, LOL! we used pro studios but they never did anything I considered good enough to buy a package of. but I think the idea of his school taking pics 2 x a year is a great idea, esp in elementary level, they change a lot in a year.

  21. Oh wow! Those are waaaaaaaaaaaay cooler than school pictures! What a handsome little man you have! 🙂
