When most of us think of a family portrait, a fairly traditional vision springs to mind. I would say for all the traditional shots I have taken, this almost accidental shot has to be amongst my favorites – an unplanned shot that really captured the family dynamic.
With summer winding down and fall just a couple months awawy, its a great time to consider a family shoot at some of the great outdoor locations we have in this area (we can also turn your home into a studio if you’d like something with a more familiar feel to it). Unlike the standard set of shots you’ll get from many of the department store studios, with us you will get a mixture of those more traditional shots you can send off to to friends and family and the creative shots that will bring a smile to your face every time you look at them. Don’t let the narrow vision so many people have for family portraits prevent you from the opportunity to get a set of pictures that actually capture all those personalities within the family.
We offer a variety of family portrait packages to suit your needs. Check the “Services” tab for more information, or contact us directly with any inquiries. Click on the “Contact” link at the top or side of the page for email/phone.
After a self-imposed break from shooting for the latter part of the winter it’s time to start updating the blog. Some shots from a recent family shoot.
Just a few shots from their July 17th wedding at Hayden Lake Country Club that I second shot for Matt Shumate.
Some wedding shots from 2010.
My nephew Aiden’s 1st birthday party took place on July 10th. Family, friends, food, and swimming – a great afternoon and evening. As a photographer I loved the opportunity I had to take pictures of the kids in their natural element – having fun and being themselves. These ‘candid’ shots are the ones that really show a child’s character, you can see so much personality in their faces – especially their eyes. If any parents ever want some pictures that go beyond the traditional ‘sit in the chair with the fake background’ (which can be nice – I’ve seen killer shots of myself circa 1978 wearing some amazing plaid vests at 3 years old) let me know. I can shoot birthday’s or other events, or we can just set up a play-day for you and your kids at a local park. Let them do their thing, and I’ll catch them at their best.
