Fauquier Fotos is now MOMPix!
Debbie’s thoughts: My passion in photography would have to be creativity. Capturing an image is just the beginning. I will look through my lens and see the artistry of the image. I want to create a work of art that tells a story. The creative aspect of the industry is what really appeals to me.
That is where the idea of MOMPix evolved. How would it be if the Mom, Dad, Grandparent, or Aunt could experience that creativity, by capturing
the image of their own child/children? What if we could provide the studio environment, ie; backdrops, camera equipment, props, boutique & vintage clothing line, shoes, boots, hats, & jewelry for the subjects, and the professional camera equipment, giving the person behind the camera the direction they needed?
Wayne & I take pride in decorating our home with images of our children and grandchildren that we photographed. We look at the wall and think, “I created that piece of art!” How cool would it be if everyone could replicate that emotion, by displaying images they captured?
I just love doing my part in protecting the environment and I feel by shopping consignment, thrift stores and yard sales, I am
repurposing items that might otherwise end up in the landfill. I tell my husband I am doing my part in keeping our planet GREEN by shopping! So I scour the shops looking for brightly colored vintage clothing(for the“Lost in the 60’s” Collection), for blue jeans, jean jackets, jumpers, skirts, & bibbed overalls(the “Forever in Bluejeans” Collection). Anything sequinned is sure to catch my eye for the “Everything That Glitters” Collection–one of my favorites! The Everything that Glitters clothing line merges with the “I Wanna Be a Rock Star” Collection. I have collected glitter skirts, shirts, dresses, shoes, boots, purses, etc. We have rockstar shirts, hats, play guitars, etc. We have play microphones to complete the enactment.
We have a pretty extensive line of western and pioneer clothing, along with cowboy boots in all sizes, play pistols, rifles, hobby horses, pioneer bonnets and dolls, western vests, belts, cowboy hats, etc in our “Westward Ho” Collection.
Also, I pride myself in owning one of the largest photography studio collections of Christmas Jammies in the area! We offer sizes Newborn to Adult 4X! So if you are wanting Holiday Family Portraits for cards, no need to go out and purchase several sets of Christmas jammies for everyone in the family–we already have them. Our Newest Holiday Collection is our Buffalo Checkered and Plaid Collection, with skirts, vests, shirts, pants, jackets, hats, and scarves. And we have a large selection of Ugly Christmas Sweaters sized infant through 3X Adult. Plaid is so “In” this Holiday Season and we want to offer the newest trends in Holiday Wear. We will be running periodic Christmas specials well before the holidays, when everything gets so hectic, those family holiday portraits take a back seat, and never get taken. Get them done early and be ahead of the game! Watch our MOMPix Facebook page for upcoming specials. If you like our page, you will be able to see all current posts.
Along with the extensive collections mentioned above, we also have everything you need to photograph your Baby’s First Birthday Images(you supply the cupcake or smash cake)–we have the display platters, banners, teddy bears, birthday hats, tiaras, tutus and the boy or girl “Birthday Chairs” which sit very low to the ground for safety.
We have Thomas Train Engine striped overalls and engineer hats & a vintage toy train for the Thomas fans. For the Firefighter fans, we have firefighter jackets, boots, hats, firefighter teddies, fire hydrant, toy fire engines. If your little one is into Bob the Builder, we have Bob the Builder vest, overalls, play tools, construction hats, Tonka trucks, etc. Our “Butterflies and Bullfrogs” collection is in the newest stages, but we are adding to it daily. We have a white picket fence, play bugs, snakes, frogs, bug nets, bug keepers, safari hats, vest, boots, etc. We are building on a Lady Bug girls collection of clothing, too. We have a child-sized wooden boat, fishing pole, Nautical Outfits, and captain’s hat. Or if your little one is more the bibbed overalls, no shirt and newspaper sailor hat fishing type, we have all of that.
MOMPix boasts a huge collection of leather bomber jackets in all sizes, a wooden handmade ride-on play airplane and flapper hats with goggles for an Airplane Pilot setting. And for the girls, teaming a bomber jacket with a tutu, is just, well, “The Bomb”!
We are so excited to see where this aspect of photography takes us and we hope you are as well. Watch for an introductory video coming soon! It will explain how it all works, and showcase some of our collections pieces.
