So excited when my print order arrived because it had my “window display” prints!! I absolutely LOVE the way this looks! Please pardon the horribly taken pictures, but I had to quickly share =) The window on the left is actually taller than the window on the right in person. Can’t wait to use them at the upcoming business fair and bazaar this weekend! I also have some fun little goody give-aways that I have to get done prior to Saturday too. Love – love! =)

Dimension – window on the left is holding 8×10 prints, the window on the right is holding 12×18 prints.

I absolutely love how innocent children are. Their imaginations are full of surprises, adventures, and simplicity. Watching a child play is probably one of my favorite things to do. They are just too precious!

Every year I have the fun opportunity of photographing this little man’s portraits {along with his brothers’ and sister’s} on or around their birthday. It is such a blast! They get super excited because today is THEIR day! On this particular frosty afternoon, we braved the cold and headed out for a quick little shoot. I was a little worried about the snow, but it ended up being a lot of fun! Here’s a sneak peek. =)

Mr. Micah, I hope you have a FABULOUS birthday!!

There is something to be said when a room is filled with friends and family to celebrate a life well lived. Yesterday, I was given the fun opportunity of documenting a surprise birthday for Arthur who turned 80. It was so fun to see the expression on his face when he turned the corner to see a room filled with his loved ones. I don’t know much about Arthur, but what I could see and learned about him last night is that he loves his family deeply, has surrounded himself with friends that have last a life time, and is incredibly proud of his heritage.

Arthur, I hope you had a truly happy birthday! May this next year and years to come bring you happiness and many blessings!

What to Wear ~ Fall Inspired {Seattle, WA Portrait Photographer}

November 17th, 2010

What to wear for a portrait session of any kind is always the #1 question right before the session. And when pulling together family outfits it can be even harder. Typically people go with “matchy-matchy” outfits, which doesn’t look bad persay. However, it doesn’t portray each of the individual’s personalities that are in the portrait. [...]

 

What to wear for a portrait session of any kind is always the #1 question right before the session. And when pulling together family outfits it can be even harder. Typically people go with “matchy-matchy” outfits, which doesn’t look bad persay. However, it doesn’t portray each of the individual’s personalities that are in the portrait. Below are a few “What to Wear” guides for the fall that will help inspire and prepare you for your upcoming family portrait session.

As many of my close friends & family will tell you, I’m a bit of a DIY’er {do it yourself}. I love coming across something that I love and then figuring out how it’s done. There’s quite a bit of satisfaction there once I’ve figured something out. Plus, it allows me to put my own twist on it, which is fun too!

You’ve probably seen these little flower headbands, which are pretty darn popular with newborn & baby shoots. I’ve always loved them but never got around to either ordering one or making one myself, until now. I’ve made other little “headband” type things using ribbon, which are cute, but much harder to get on an infant… So today I slapped together a few of my own. I have a friend who is making me a few more and does a much better job than I do. Below, my model Melvin, is showing off my cute new flowers. He’s such a great model! I pay him peanuts for model sessions! {hehehe}

Anyhow, can’t wait for my upcoming newborn sessions!
