Denny ~ in home lifestyle session

Now that 2022 is a wrap I can get back to some blogging. This Fall and Winter I had four newborns that I was able to meet and capture. Some were private and some were shared. Some were in my studio and some were in home sessions. They were all very different creatively based on…

After a week of being sick I’m coming alive again. I took a walk outside without music to take in the fresh air, all the sounds, and some of that sun. Why does it always have to be nice weather outside while I’m stuck indoors?! This happens to me every time. I’ve watched all the…

Shall we talk about editing images in this post? Something I added to my editing toolbox is a Wacom tablet. I use this mostly for skin retouching because of the pressure point use of the pen versus the mouse. And my mouse is not the typical apple mouse. I use a gaming mouse I found…

Imagine the scene Getting ready in your uncles log cabin home with just a few of your family members for an intimate ceremony. Nostalgia is all over the walls with your favorite singers and songwriters. You can smell a hint of wood burning like a campfire outside. The light is a slight matte orange color…

“Everyone thinks they have the best dog. And none of them are wrong.” – W.R. Purche When you accomplish something you’ve dreamed about for so long, it’s a very surreal feeling. And you want to almost deny its even happening. Because how can something like that have even happened. It was a belief you had….

Here we are in the first week of June. The festivities are back here in our little town. My daughter danced in the parade. It was one of those moments that froze in time. Just walking around being with people finally felt really normal and healthy. It was all outside with perfect weather. I think…

Why should you have senior photos taken? Why not use one of the million selfies you have or have a friend take them. Well my take on this is that you don’t need to. But I do have many reasons you will want to. First off, this is a grand momentous moment in your life….

After a wonderful weekend away I’m back in the swing of things with a wonderfully busy week. Three sessions and an in person ordering session are coming up. This wonderful session was adjusted for a time when the weather would cooperate. And I’m so thankful we did that because the light was beautiful that morning….

Why should you do Branding Photos

You and your business are more than a logo; I read this sentence and then read it again. Your images can invoke feelings even before anyone messages you or picks up the phone. You as the business owner are the face of your business. It’s important to have a visual brand that presents you in…

Jerome ~ Class of 2022 ~ Bothell, WA

Appropriately we took an adventure to take these photos. Just as he closes out the childhood adventure to start a new adult one. We hiked through sand and down stairs in the drizzle and overcast. It was the only few hours with light rain. I’ll tell you why we didn’t reschedule. I’m 100% used to…

Have you ever thought you’d love a career of photography but dread the online presence you need to have.? Which also seems to be what you need to do for most small businesses these days. Have you thought a blog is overwhelming? 3 posts a week is crazy and sounds way to time consuming. And…

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”—Babe Ruth I love finding these inspirational quotes. What a great reminder for all of us. Never Give Up. This recent session was with two awesome senior twins. Double your fun was right. Well that is exactly what we did. At first, I couldn’t tell them…
