Peaches n' Cream - A Styled Photo Shoot Ojai, CA

Whitney Hartmann - Sunday, November 03, 2013

Everything is just peachy over here! We are in the midst of our busy holiday season! I wanted to post this styled mini session a long time ago!! This was such a great session because we had the coolest location in Ojai, an old barn that looks like it was painted just for our shoot, and all of the cutest party accessories from Bon Fortune, my favorite party supply place. We had a vintage paper umbrella, milk bottles, a balloon wand, and all of the peach party supplies I could get my hands on!

Lil' Pumpkin - Ojai Maternity Shoot

Whitney Hartmann - Monday, October 29, 2012

I was so excited when this sweet couple told me they wanted to do their maternity shoot at a pumpkin patch! Of course we had to go to the best one in Ojai, Boccali's! It was a perfect day. The weather had cooled and there were big puffy clouds in the sky. A photographer's dream!  We had so much fun and this great couple created a special way to celebrate their new lil' pumpkin! I can't wait to meet him!!

My Holiday Photoshoot

Whitney Hartmann - Wednesday, November 23, 2011

So I always do a couple of photoshoots with my own kids during the holidays. My mom likes to have pics for her cards, and they always seem to be dressing up for one occasion or another. So on this day I had a client photoshoot in the park, and I thought it would be good to throw some holiday clothes on them and bring them along, with my husband of course to try and help out. What you see might look familiar to you. Did you know our kids cry, scream, don't listen, and don't look at the camera too? That's right. So I thought I would post a few pics of "reality" before you get the "good" ones in the mail! Enjoy!

In the end there were a few good ones.

Can't wait for the next one! I think it will go a lot better! 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Ojai Fall Carnival Photo Booth

Whitney Hartmann - Monday, November 07, 2011

This weekend Josephine's school had their 2nd annual Fall Carnival! It was so fun despite the fact that it was super chilly and even rained on us a bit. This is the second year I put on a Photo Booth for Josephine's Class. With the help of a ton a people we set up a cute backdrop, took pictures, printed them, cut them to fit these really cute carnival frames, then also handed them out. It was a lot of work, but we had a great time hanging out all day, while the kids played and had fun.

Below is a little look at that fun photo booth. For the people that took pics, you can also purchase more on my website. ALL the proceeds go directly to the PTO. Just go to the Boutique on my site and click on events, or just click here and shop away!

A BIG thanks to everyone that helped out at our booth and the carnival and to the PTO for putting on such a great event! Come and join is again next fall!!

Also the winner for our Frank and Frida Giveaway is Amanda E! THX so much to everyone that entered!!

Happy Halloween! Milk and Honey Farms Halloween Party in Santa Barbara

Whitney Hartmann - Sunday, October 30, 2011

Happy Halloween!!! We hope you have a very ghoulish Halloween weekend! We had the pleasure of going to a fantastically frightful haunted Halloween party at the Milk and Honey Farms in Santa Barbara. It was super scary with its haunted house and full sized graveyard, plus the electric chair and all the scary ghouls running amuck. But so much fun with all the fun Halloween details, great food and fun people. THX so much for having us there!! Checkout the pics below and the fun slideshow at the end. If you were at the party and are interested in receiving your images please contact me!

We hope you have a spooky, but very safe, haunted Halloween!

xo, Whitney
