Photographer, Amber Bauerle of Frosted Productions shares her latest photography, specializing in commercial, editorial and fashion photography.

Thanks for visiting my photography blog! For pricing and information go to www.frostedproductions.com. I attempt to keep up to date on it, and have felt more motivated lately... so hopefully will be current eventually. This is a new blog since 2012, thought I would migrate my old posts over, but let's be honest, I don't think it will ever happen - so for now, enjoy my latest (and hopefully greatest). I usually write late at night, so please excuse my punctuality, sometimes I have something to say about a shoot, and other times I'm falling asleep, it's random, but at least you get to see the photos. I'm the only photographer and editor of Frosted Productions (get asked that a lot) - I will have admins help post photos, but I'm the one that always writes the posts - feel free to comment - I love to hear from others. xoxo

Sweet Laura Grace, photo shoot in Savannah.

Model Portfolio Photographer

children photography

 

One thing I love about my job is to work with new aspiring models and help, coach them on how to pose, work with their body angles, hold their chins, etc.  On my travel sessions, I don’t have a ton of time on my shoots, but I still hope that a lot of these girls walk away with learning something maybe?

I don’t know what it was when I traveled to Savannah, but I swear every girl I shot was the SWEETEST thing ever.  This little girl, Laura Grace, drove all the way from Mississippi to shoot with me while I was in Savannah.  She brought me a “clay vase” that was made from “Mississippi Mud” thought that was so cute and thoughtful.  Loved her and her mom so much, since this shoot I was lucky to see them again as I casted her for the AW14 Persnickety Catalog Shoot.

child photography | spring sessions 2012 part 1

 

Soooo… Spring is in the Air?  Well, it’s getting there and I’m excited for the beautiful blossoms!  I went through and picked out some of my favorites from all of the Spring Sessions I did last there – there were a lot!  So I have three different posts of my favorites, since I couldn’t possibly narrow it down!  And when I do blog posts, I guess all the photos that I show from a session may not be the most amazing photo in the world, but I like to show a little variety so when clients view this kind of stuff they know what to expect in the photography they will get.   I will post part 2 and 3 soon

A sneak peek of this gorgeous little baby… Kenzie.

baby kenzi sneak peek, utah newborn photography session

 

I have been wanting to do a newborn shoot using my reflection pool for some time now… and lucky me, it was setup the night before this shoot and it just all worked out perfectly.  I can’t wait to get to the rest of the photos.  This baby was incredible to work with and her mom delivered totally natural… crazy woman, I would be way too scared, but it is amazing to me that a mom would do that!  I am starting to think I should next time (according to my husband there won’t be a next time), but anyway, every baby I have ever taken photos of that has been delivered naturally has the best temperament and is so calm!  It is weird that there is that big of a difference, but there is, I don’t really know what that means exactly… just saying it’s interesting. ;)

Update from Amber’s assistant on what has been going on around here!

9 Comments

Hi!  This is Kalen, Amber’s assistant, I will jump on here from time to time to give updates, so thought I would say a quick “hello” and let you know what has been going on around here!

Fall Family Appointments

If you are looking to do a fall family appointment, we only have a certain amount available and are already booking them all up!  Please call us today at 801.427.7490 to talk to me if you would like amazing, candid, beautiful fall photos for your Christmas cards this year….  Although Amber has so many new family pics she needs to post, here is a link to our Family Photography on our website.  And remember all of our “photography sessions” come with ALL of the digital photos, with tons artistically edited!  A typical family session depending on the location, family size, etc. (indoor/outdoor), usually you end up with 500-1000 digital photos.

We keep certain amount of “family, newborn, children, commercial” appointments available as it is so easy for Amber to become just a “family photographer” or just a “wedding photographer”… and she loves all of the different types of photography so much this is the best way for us to manage that she keeps variety.  She has been moving more and more into a higher percentage of her work being commercial shooting, for companies, clothing lines, etc. which she LOVES.  So, we could have a Newborn Appointment available in a 4 weeks but a family appointment available in 8 weeks if that makes sense.  WHATEVER it is you are looking for from teams to weddings, we will have 2012 completely booked solid very soon, so don’t wait – give us a call!  And if you are one of those that just had a baby and didn’t make an appointment prior, once in a while Amber will open up a spot on our weekly calendar to accommodate depending on her workload, so always give us a call to check, I would love to talk to you!

Blog Update

If you do follow our blog, we realize there hasn’t been much to follow lately – Amber is scrambling to get caught up with things and working into extremely “late/early” hours into the night. ;)  It is a priority to her though and so her old blog WILL start to migrate over, plus she will start posting her new content better… in the mean time, she will post pics once and a while on our Facebook page: Frosted Productions on Facebook, make sure to become a fan there if you haven’t!

Needing Little Girls All Ages for Upcoming Photoshoots

She has about a million photo-shoots coming up where she is need in little girls for clothing lines, hair accessories, shoots for companies websites, etc.  She always gives first opportunity to her fans and their children first before using a modeling agency as for “kid shoots” she believes the natural “child candid look” is so beautiful she generally doesn’t need models.  SO the benefit for our fans kids, is that you get to be apart of these amazing photoshoots and get all of the edited photos that your child is in for freeeeeeeee!!!!

Published in Children’s Fashion Magazine Summer 2012 Issue

One more thing to keep your eyes open for is the new Issue of Babiekins Magazine is set to be released any day – and yes, Amber’s work will be featured!  Wait until you see these pics….  you will be amazed from the set that was created to the extravagant hair, makeup, etc.  We have not been allowed to post any pics from the shoot yet because the magazine doesn’t let us until it’s been published.  IF you are not familiar with Babiekins Magazine , they are a children’s fashion magazine that was recently just featured in Brasil Vogue, so to have our work in it is pretty amazing.  We had clothing shipped from top brands and designers from all over Europe, including Young Versace.  Oh and did I mention that Amber had live butterflies shipped in for this?  Yes, they came on dry ice and we got to see them come to life as they landed on the little girls arms, heads, etc.  It was pretty amazing to be apart of.  The team that Amber had for this from fashion stylist to 4 hair and makeup artists, all the models, interns, assistants…. it was an insane production!  Amber, used “Productions” in our company name when she originally named it because she can do a “production”, you will know what I mean when you see the pics that are coming any day now!

Find out some of the editing that goes into final photos! Beware I do talk about runny noses in this post.

30 Comments

My kids noses are not the only ones I wipe…

I thought I would start writing a little bit more about my editing process to educated customers on what goes into my editing and then I may also start posting some videos and tips for any photographers out there as well that would like to see how I do things on my photos.

I will continue to write posts about this, but let’s talk about nosey’s and toesy’s. ;) Some photographer’s “retouch” by adding a contrast boost to the photo, this is very different than the type of editing I do.  Every photographer has their own style, one is not better than the other, just preference.  My “style” has become very editorial, what I mean by that is many photos have a “commercial or catalog” feel to them.  It is very important to me though that the person in the photo still looks like themselves – it’s not like I’m taking freckles off of faces, that would be a “manipulation”… but okay, many people don’t realize I have lowered their shoulder, taken a little out under the chin or maybe taken in their leg, butt (should I call it “bum”, I never know) or something in a bit… the goal is that even my client, the person in the photo would never know, that it still is “them” but I’m bringing out the best in them.  Of course many of those things I just mentioned would NEVER need to be done on a child. ;)

Since I do so much child photography, I am not only taking out runny noses, but yes, I will even pick a boogers – does that make you sick?  I’m the one staring at it 10 times the size that it normally would be. ;)  It’s not like you would ever think, “I don’t want my kid edited” – they are not in that way, it is their natural beauty, their natural eye color (I never change the actual color of the eyes, just brighten them or put more light in them which changes them just like it would if you were in the sun). The reason you get photos is to capture a moment, in a children shoot I take 600-1000 photos, this is necessary to get CANDID shots, and if you are worrying about wiping their nose every second, the candid shot doesn’t happen.  I have even taken out pee from a little girl peeing her pants all down her legs for every edited photo (took hours) as we were in the mountains and there was no change of clothes.  For things like that you don’t want to simply “color or paint” in Photoshop over her jeans, then it wouldn’t look realistic, so I got many legs from shots before she peed (is peed a word?) and then used them for the edited shots.

So this post might be incredibly boring to most people reading if you have gotten this far, I just felt it may be interesting for people to realize I’m taking the red veins out of their eyes or lightening them.  As far as “toes” goes because this post is called “wiping noses and toeses” (I had to use “toes” because it rhymed with nose, not that the editing on them is anything related).  So many little kids especially newborns have bad circulation in their feet and in photos their feet get deep red or purple, in many photos I am matching them to their leg color.

All of the stuff takes tons of time, and when you get a photo from me, you are not going to notice that their feet color is fixed because it just looks natural.  You wouldn’t know there was one of one of those cute, crusty little boogies (sorry) up their nose that would have been in the photo because I was laying on the ground or that there was redness in the whites of the eyes because you or a child was tired.  And yes I do much more from skin smoothing, bags under the eyes, head swapping, finger nail polish removing, etc.  I have taken 50 pounds off of people before but that is another post…

– I have too much editing to do, so don’t have time to proof read this – sorry if there is typos.  Oh, and if you are wondering if I will ever post photos again to this blog, yes that is my goal… :)

A children photography session that has fall colors you will not believe are real, I still can’t believe it myself, and I was there.

leave the parents at home, children photography session

 

I cannot believe the fall colors in this shoot.  When I found this spot this past Fall, I about died, I was screaming and jumping (really it was bad).  I was excited about the beautiful paths and Fall colors and didn’t think it could get better but kept walking and then I see this beautiful field that had the most beautiful red, orange and yellow fall colors on trees surrounding it.

This shoot was originally supposed to be with the whole family but at the last minute their dad couldn’t come and so we decided to do the shoot with just the kids.  It was fun, I think they got a workout because I made them run through the field a hundred times.  I also love when children, teens or whatever hold hands it is so cute, but that age of “children” isn’t really into “holding hands”.  Well, they still did for me a little. ;)

Take a second and look at this first shot – those colors are real, I really had never seen anything like it, for all the trees to be in full autumn bloom without leaves that had fallen very much – amazing.  I also love in this photo how the sun just barely touches the tops of their hair.
