I apologize wholeheartedly that I haven’t written a blog entry in quite a long time. I’ve kept my facebook up to date, but my blog has suffered terribly.
Since my last post, I have designed new gift certificates for the studio! Let me know what you think.
I will be offering three days of special appointments at the beach! Family Portraits, Senior Portraits, Trash the Dress…..you name it…..it’s always good at the beach!
I’m currently booking appointments for the weekend of November 7-9, 2009 (Saturday-Monday) at Montana De Oro State Park. Montana De Oro is gorgeous….over 8,000 acres of rugged cliffs, secluded sandy beaches, coastal plains, streams, canyons, and hills!
For more information on Montana De Oro please visit their website at: http://www.slostateparks.com/montana_de_oro/default.asp
What better way to spend a day with your family than at the beach! It’s time to get your family together, and get some new portraits on the wall! You’ll have beautiful Christmas cards to send out! Christmas gifts to give to family, and great memories of spending time together with your family.
Sessions start at 10am and last an hour. Daytime sessions are $50.
Since appointments are only available for these three days, there are only three sunset appointments available. Sunset appointments will be for 2 hours and start at 3pm each of those three days. Sunset on those days will be at 5pm. Sunset appointments are $75.
Sessions are limited. Call or email right away to schedule your appointment. – Or – Use my online scheduling system to book your appointment. Book your appointment at:
I need to choose a single image to represent my wedding photography in an Ad. Here are some of my favorites…..leave me a comment and let me know which one you think I should use, and why.
This Saturday is the Dance Recital for The Dance Company in Kingsburg. My daughter has danced with the studio since the day they opened. She know is a teacher’s aide along with a student at TDC. Friday was her dress rehearsal. Here are a few of my favorite images from the rehearsal…..The first three are numbers that my daughter is in. The last image is from a number called “Cinderella.” My daughter is not in this number, but it was one of my favorite images of the day.
This one is short and sweet. I love working with children in the studio. I enjoy taking multiple shots and combining them into one piece to capture a more complete glimpse into their personalities! I love my job! This is from a session this past week.
The past month has found me buried in weddings and High School Seniors. I figured it was about time to try and start catching up on my blog once again!
Thursday afternoon before the incredible lightning storm we had here, I had the privilege of having Alyssa and her family in my studio. During our consultation the week before I learned a few things about Alyssa, and we decided on some props for her to bring. These props included her FFA jacket, her flute, her softball gear (she’s a catcher), and dad’s motorcycle. We had a blast.
One of the images we were both excited about creating was the shot in her catcher gear. I do a lot of custom work in my studio, and have found that it’s the clients that have strong personalities, or interests that are the easiest to design custom work for. We laughed a lot on Thursday afternoon. Matter of fact, there were a few shots I’d try to take without her smiling….and we’d all end up laughing again anyway. But…once she put her catcher gear on, I had to work hard to even get a tiny grin out of her. She’s all business once she’s in her gear.
For those of you that know my family, my daughter is a huge baseball fan. She has a shirt that has a baseball diamond on the front of it, with the saying “The baseball diamond is this girl’s best friend.” I thought that Diamonds are a girl’s best friend would be a great title for the piece. Here’s the custom piece that was designed with the images of her in her gear…..
