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.

Snowboarding in the Studio!

What a weekend it was for me. It started with 6 year old twin boys. They came into the studio wearing t-shirts saying Thing 1 and Thing 2. I had two OpLove sittings, two Senior Portrait sessions, one Homecoming game and festivities, and one family portrait session.

Here’s one from the last senior session on Sunday. I love when I get a chance to be creative! Sam brought in his snowboard. He got to use his imagination while posing…….and I got to use mine while editing the image. Here’s the final product:

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

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…..

Congratulations Gigi and Martin!

Yesterday I shot my first wedding of ’09. What a pleasure it was to be part of Gigi and Martin’s day.

Gigi and Martin were married in a small Nazarene Church in Ivanhoe, a little country church, with limited venues for outside shots.

Some things are starting to bloom around here, but we weren’t going to find any lush green landscape anywhere close. While driving to the ceremony location a week prior to the ceremony, I passed this amazing walnut orchard. The trees were very mature and for lack of a better word, pretty “gnarly”

I made plans with the bride and groom to kidnap the wedding party from the ceremony site to head to this orchard before sunset.

Most of the wedding party thought I was nuts……but I’m pretty happy with the results! I’ll post a few more of my favs in a day or two!

Custom Design Work

I provide a lot of custom work for my clients.  It’s probably one of the best kept secrets in my studio.  One of the biggest secrets I’d like to share with everyone.  I guess I’ve hoped word of mouth will help spread the news, but I’m going to do a bit of the sharing myself.

 

This past week I have designed wedding invitations, birthday invitations, thank you cards, custom canvas pieces, and more!  Here are a few of the items I’ve recently designed for clients!

This was designed for a high school senior!

This is one of the thank you notes I designed this week…..

My Photos on Fireflight’s Myspace

Wednesday morning I took my daughter to have breakfast with the Christian Rock Band, Fireflight at KDUV FM 88.9 in Visalia. We had a good time! It was great to meet the band members, and I got to take some neat pictures.

Wednesday night I went with my daughter, Genevieve, to the Fireflight and Abandon (and A Current Affair) concert at Immanuel High School in Reedley. I was able to shoot at the concert as well. My daughter even shot from where she was…..which is where all the teenagers wanted to be, belly to the stage. I have posted a few photos from the events here on facebook, and a few on my myspace…..but they are ALL on my website.HERE

Yesterday I was contacted by Fireflight’s and Abandon’s management company nightVision Artist Management asking permission to use some of my photos. I of course agreed. I had simply gone and shot for fun…matter of fact, I had a blast shooting that night. They agreed to leave my copyright mark and website address on the photos. They’re even posting some of Genevieve’s photos!

The photos are all being uploaded to the bands’ various websites today.

Abandon’s Myspace

Ok, so there’s my news. I’m excited! I had to share!

This is one of Genevieve’s shots that they have posted.
