You most likely recognize mr z if you have been around here for any amount of time…I mean I’ve been photographing him since he was 1 y’all!  if you have purchased the online class the magic of childhood you probably recognize these curls but you also are prob like what the what?!  he has gotten so big!!!!  i love this kid…When his mom requested a baseball all about me shoot i knew we had to taper it down because he was getting older and we didnt want it to be cheesy but we wanted to make sure we captured his love for baseball and more importantly his love for the home team the houston astros! for the record yes his mama has got some serious “connections” because we had Minute maid park all to ourselves and it was AAAAAMMMMAZING!

i also have to admit i was super nervous about this shoot…mostly because the weather forced us to reschedule like 18 times but also bc i am a mom of girls and as you know i adore football…and I’m a sport loyal kind of gal so unless it’s Aggie baseball I don’t really watch it …eeeekkk I’m running to hide right now because i seriously admitted that on the big bag internet hahaha!  but seriously i wanted to do boy moms and in particular baseball boy moms justice with this shoot!  i hope y’all love it

i gave you a little sneak peek here but I’m finally blogging this session and its a doozie...

it’s you have followed me for any number of years you will recognize miss L.  she come been coming to me since she was a squishy little thang and every other year we get to create a unique and completely “her” all about me session… you might remember this one it was one of my FAVS… well see miss L was an avid reader even back then and who knew years later we would be creating an all about me session for her little book worm self.  All about me sessions are so unique because you and i work together to create something that is completely and utterly dreamed up from the imagination, wishes and dreams from YOUR CHILD!  We don’t think of a theme and stick your sweet child in it, we CREATE an entire set based on WHO THEY ARE in this moment!  Now i have to admit miss l’s mom is like seriously arty and creative so any time i get to work with her its MY dream come true!  y’all she made this garland!  yeah like MADE IT!  and you see that amazing hand painted globe?  yep she made that too!  this woman is incredible and believe it or not her day-job is NOT creative hahahaha…  This session was purely from the imagination and whimsy of miss L and how her mama see’s her…it makes my heart so happy to see these sessions come to life for all of us.

I originally wrote this guide thinking that since i had only shot with a Go Pro under water than it was just for peeps who used a GoPro…but i have been blown away by the reviews and have been proven very wrong 🙂  this guide is the perfect thing to get your feet wet (hahaha) in underwater photography fun whether you are a hobbyist or pro who has always been curious but never tried underwater shooting…I promise it will open up a whole new world of photography and FUN for both you and your kids!

You can see what the EXPLORE E-GUIDE is all about by clicking RIGHT HERE

here are just a few of the amazing reviews..and if you are on the fence please feel free to message me and i can connect you with any of the girls who have purchased the guide and they will def let you know what they think…YALL SHOOTING UNDERWATER WITH MY GO PRO CHANGED MY PERSPECTIVE and my LIFE…but you can read all about that in the guide 😉

“Hi. My name is Miranda and I am addicted to underwater photography. chubbycheekphotography has an amazing guide to take your family swim pics from ‘that’s cool’ to ‘Holy moly!!!’ … you need to check it out!! link in comments as well as a before and after of some of my recent water pics.” Miranda

“I personally think it would be helpful for underwater housing. Her editing videos alone are worth the money in my opinion. Some of her guide relates to the GoPro but her tips for shooting underwater would apply to any camera you shoot with.” katie s

 

“I do shoot with a go pro, however I think that this guide is geared towards underwater photography in general. Awesome tips on shooting underwater, what to wear, ideas and editing videos!!! Most of us all have different versions of the go pro and some use underwater housing. I don’t think you will be disappointed! I personally love it and I know there are several others that would say the same!” kelly e

 

“I think this would be worth getting even if you are shooting with a DSLR. The guide has a lot of editing content which is relevant no matter what the camera. She also talks about poses, water clarity, lighting. All of that applies to using a DSLR as well (or mirrorless, whatever). When shooting underwater with a DSLR, it’s hard to change settings in those housings, so the people that I know that use them shoot in a semi manual mode like aperture priority. Which shooting like that is not too far off of shooting in auto (which is how the go pro works), so I don’t think you would be disappointed in this guide.” LJ

“I am having SO much fun with this thing and can’t thank you enough for this guide Shalonda Chaddock!!” Brenda w

Bubble Blower + Glitter Thrower + Magic Maker

Hey yall!  I'm, Shalonda, the eyes behind the camera of chubby cheek photography. I am a nationally published child photographer, based out of Houston Texas, where I am drowning in glitter + princess dresses with my two daughters, also known as the cheeks girls, and the love of my life, daddy cheeks.  I am inspired by REAL life + the magic of childhood and I truly believe that the in between moments mean the most... even when that means stepping on a Barbie shoe before I have had my morning coffee!
