Digital Photography Boot Camp

Back one more time this summer...Digital Photography Boot Camp with Jerry & Barb Jividen!

This exciting digital photography workshop will be held in the Hocking Hills State Park, and features half day of classroom instruction, Power Point, and handouts; and features half day of hands-on field instruction!

Recommended for those with a serious interest in learning about Digital Photography and about their digital camera.

Digital SLR cameras are best for this class, but some "point-n-shoot" digital cameras are appropriate as well. Please call our office to ask if your camera has the recommended features and functions to optimize your learning. (Cameras that can function in a manual mode of operation work best for this workshop.)

The normal cost of this workshop is $129 and includes lunch and handouts. BUT...through this special Blog announcement, you can take $25 OFF the regular price just by mentioning that you saw this listing on our Blog!

Maternity Magic!


We've been photographing a lot of Maternity Sessions over the past couple of months, so I decided to share a few pictures with you.

Maternity Sessions are a great way to preserve the memories of that special time in a woman's life--whether it's for a first-time mom or for one of her subsequent pregnancies.  With the big craze in scrapbooking your children's life from 3D Ultrasounds through their school years, Maternity Sessions are just a natural fit in telling the story through photos!

Our sessions at Jividen Photography are both fun and intimate!  They usually last an hour and are totally private.  We normally photograph 2-3 different outfits, belly wraps, or bare bellies, and "together photos" of the mommy-to-be and the daddy-to-be, and siblings (if there are any).

We even offer Belly Castings, which we call, "Impressions."

If you want to schedule a Maternity Session, try to do so between the 34th and 36th week, depending on your weight gain.

Call our studio for a private consultation or for more information.

Thanks for listening!
