I have been teaching photography workshops since 2012, and it has been amazing!! Watching ‘my’ students grow, hone their craft, and reach the level of quality and success they desire makes me SO happy. I say ‘my’ students, because I love and care about EACH ONE of my students! Even long after our workshop has taken place, I’m there to continue the learning and support of the students; to be their cheerleader, advisor, friend, brainstorm helper, an ear to vent their troubles too, whatever they need. I LOVE teaching!!! It is in my heart, it is in my blood, I am passionate about it, and I strive to always give 150%!

 

A few days ago I received this message from a July 2019 workshop student, and wanted to share it with you!

Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity to teach a workshop in Port Huron, Michigan. The students were SOOO much fun!  These ladies are not only colleagues in MI but friends, and truly supportive of one another.   This image pretty much sums up these awesome photographers:

Hi friends, I’d like you to meet my custom USB drives! Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

They are the little handy tools that help me deliver high-quality digital photos to my clients. I have used flash drives from USB Memory Direct since 2014, and I absolutely love them! As a colorful, bold, whimsical newborn photographer, these flash drives fit my branding colors and business perfectly. They represent a little bit of me every time I hand them over to a client.Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

One of the main reasons I love flash drives SO much is that they work on all computers. Many new computers and laptops, including my own new laptop, no longer have disc drives, making it impossible to transfer my clients’ photos using a CD. USBs, on the other hand, work on all devices that have a USB port.Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

I also love that I was able to custom design the front AND the back of each drive.  The back includes a little thank you message.Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

When I deliver digital images and products to my clients, they receive a colorfully bag with the USB drive, a Thank You card, and a print release.   Along with all the other fun products they ordered.Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

I truly adore packaging these flash drives in little custom tins that secure the flash drive in place. It also ensures that the flash drives will stay protected when I mail them to my clients. Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

I always feel like I am handing over a luxury product to my clients because of the sleek and simple design of the drives. And they are customized with my colors and logo which makes them perfect!Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

I want to thank USB Memory Direct for supplying me with awesome flash drives. Not once have I had a USB go bad on me, and the drives are always reliable and fast. Plus, they have great packaging options. I highly recommend their products!Idaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photographyIdaho Falls ID Newborn Baby Children Birthday Cake Smash Family Photographer ~ Caralee Case photography

This has been a year of SO many firsts, and so many adventures in photography for me! Including my first time to Argentina!!! In October 2017 I had the pleasure of attending the Baby & Kid Argentina Conference in Buenos Aires, as a teacher and speaker.  I taught a one-day newborn workshop where we focused on lighting, posing, editing and so much more!  Our first little model was such a handsome boy:

In August 2017 I had the incredible opportunity to teach at the Click Family Photography Congress in Sao Paul, Brazil.   Some highlights of my trip include teaching 2 group workshops, photographing several gorgeous models, making so many new Brazilian photographer friends, and being one of the concluding speakers at the conference.  Here are some highlights from the 1st workshop, and our sweet model, Livia:

Our second little model, Mirella, wasn’t really a fan of sleeping, so we started off with a demonstration on wrapping.  And got lots of cute photos with her sweet eyes open.  I love the fun, colorful headband she is wearing from Simply Sweet:Caralee Case Photography Workshop ~ Newborn Infant Baby Photographer Caralee Case Photography Workshop ~ Newborn Infant Baby PhotographerCaralee Case Photography Workshop ~ Newborn Infant Baby PhotographerCaralee Case Photography Workshop ~ Newborn Infant Baby PhotographerCaralee Case Photography Workshop ~ Newborn Infant Baby PhotographerCaralee Case Photography Workshop ~ Newborn Infant Baby PhotographerCaralee Case Photography Workshop ~ Newborn Infant Baby Photographer

I was working in my prop room today, cleaning up a bit and making sure everything was in it’s proper place. As I was ‘working’ (who can even call it work when I enjoy doing it so much???), I realized how much I LOVE my prop room. I have been doing newborn photography for 9 years now (it will be 10 years in January 2018 woot!), and I have collected quite the assortment of beautiful colorful props. This is just one section of my prop room, where I keep some of the bean bag posing fabrics, flokati rugs, buckets and bucket stuffers. Don’t worry my neutral lovin’ friends and clients….the other side of my room has PLENTY of props for you too! This side just makes me SMILE. I hope you enjoy a little look inside my prop room. Maybe someday I’ll share a little bit more, but here is a look at my ‘happy place’.
