If you have been looking for a way to grow your photography skills and business, then look no further because PhotoVision is awesome! {I sound like a used car salesman =) } Seriously though, I HIGHLY recommend it to budding & professional photographers! For me personally, I do not have a lot of spare time to go to conferences, so when I came across PhotoVision’s DVD set, which allows me to watch and glean from other professional photographers, I jumped at the chance to get it! Now because of a special sale, anyone can receive PhotoVision’s 6 DVDs for just $49 by using the promo code: PVFAN. I look forward to my bi-monthly, 3-hour photo educational fix arriving in my mailbox chocked full of info and inspiration. Don’t miss out! It’s a GREAT way to learn in the comfort of your own home!

Simply Simple {Seattle Eastside Maternity & Newborn Photographer}

March 21st, 2011

Today I find myself being drawn to these two images. I love the simplicity of them. There is nothing in the frame distracting away from the subject. The poses are simple, the lighting is soft, and the subject is beautiful. It is easy in sessions to over do it. To over think, over pose, and over [...]

Today I find myself being drawn to these two images. I love the simplicity of them. There is nothing in the frame distracting away from the subject. The poses are simple, the lighting is soft, and the subject is beautiful.

It is easy in sessions to over do it. To over think, over pose, and over process. Keeping things simply simple is what I love and these images portray that.

I am a very visual person. Go figure, right? =) I can walk into a run down building, house, etc and visual what it COULD be. I can visual moments at weddings before they happen or even during a session with a family, couple, or individual. This for me comes very easy. However, I also know that for many, visualizing artistic things can be very difficult. For example hanging portraits on the wall.

Have you ever walked into someones home where the walls are completely covered in 4×6 and 5×7 frames? It becomes messy and visually chaotic. As an artist and photographer, it is my job to help my clients visualize how to place a collections of statement images on their wall for all to see and enjoy.

Below are two examples of spaces to hang those beautiful new family portraits you just had taken with Gallery Wraps. The first is a traditional dining space, while the second is a more contemporary and smaller dining space. A Gallery Wrap is a canvas type product that sits away from the wall about 2-3 inches. It is a beautiful product and is more cost effective than a canvas, which we also offer.

Whether you live in a large home with tons of wall space or a cozy cottage or condo, Fine Art Gallery Wraps work for all spaces. Feel free to contact me if you would like to learn more about our Fine Art Gallery Wraps.

I had the fun opportunity of meeting back up with Jonathan yesterday for a quick yearbook portrait. I first met Jonathan after photographing his older brother 3 years ago for his Senior Portraits and then later photographing Jonathan for a portrait session. It was great to meet back up with Jonathan yesterday after so many years! Time has flown by quickly!!!

We’ll be heading out later in the spring for his full session, but in the mean time, here’s the shot we got yesterday. Bring on the warmer weather! =)

I can’t believe Miss Emery is getting ready to turn 1! This past year has FLOWN by with her! She has been a part of our Baby’s First Year program and I’ve loved every minute that I get to watch her grow! The best part too is that her mommy is my dear cousin. =) Her mommy also is the creator and designer of EmeryNoelle Hats that I love and use during newborn and baby sessions. So today we made it a double wammy day and photographed new products in the EmeryNoelle line, which I will be posting a preview of shortly. =) In the meantime, here’s a FUN sneak peek of Miss Emery’s 1-year session. Her mommy even brought a super cute outfit made specially for her birthday. Too fun!

I really don’t torture children with yummy goodness =)

Your gallery is now up and the hard part of choosing which fine art prints or canvases to adorn your walls is now the task at hand. For many, we have scatter around our homes and walls standard 5×7 and 8×10 prints and never think of going any larger. However, as you see below, the 8×10 quickly becomes engulfed [...]

 

Your gallery is now up and the hard part of choosing which fine art prints or canvases to adorn your walls is now the task at hand. For many, we have scatter around our homes and walls standard 5×7 and 8×10 prints and never think of going any larger. However, as you see below, the 8×10 quickly becomes engulfed by the massive wall space surrounding it.

I was so excited when I came across Ariana Falerni’s Wall Guides because they help me explain and SHOW my clients that BIG isn’t scary at all. Below are some examples of why big is better. =)
