We have added a new event that I'm super excited about.... "SHAKE your Tutu" not just for girls. I already have some boys coming in vintage (boy) clothing that is going to be pretty fun. Today I bought some props to add the the fun vintage event.... going to be so fun and a big hit! We still have a couple spots open so call today or email me to get more info on pricing on this event. The Portrait Session regular price is $75 but for this limited time event it's $50... and the print pricing is our Children Event Pricing....over all about a 35% off our regular pricing. And a great gift for those hard to buy for people in your life. A great opportunity to save a little money.

The other event that we are having is a return from last year.... "Classic Black". This event is a great simple portrait session. These portraits are also great for Christmas cards and Christmas Gifts for that hard to buy for person. The $75 session fee goes towards the charity of your choice. Here is what our clients are saying about us from last years event.

“Every time I go to you, we have such a blast &
know that we are getting more than just a picture.
You care about each customer as if
they were your own family.” -Stefanie Hill

Thanks Stefanie and that really means a lot to me. We do love each family as they were our own. I love creating portraits for families to enjoy for many years to come. Don't miss another opportunity for a family portrait session.

Moore Beach

While I was at the Beach the Moore family came down to visit. We did a lot of sightseeing while they were here. I took them to a lot of my favorite places on the Oregon Coast. We even packed up their baby and went for a big hike. The last night at the beach we were having dinner by the campfire and when the sun started to go down we ran out and created this image.

Romantic Getaway

I was on the beach doing a session, and this couple was standing up on this rock perfectly posed. They were holding hands and hugging and seemed to just be taking in the Beach and the Ocean. I couldn't grab my camera fast enough . When they came down off the rock, I found out that they were on Vacation from back east. Then the last night I was at the beach, the same couple were sitting on the beach watching the sunset. I couldn't help myself again. They were so Romantic!!!

Kiss Me Cate!!!

One of the highlights from this summer was Cate and her frog (yes, it's real). The client wanted to capture candids of Cate as she is right now at the age of 2 exploring, telling us the color of things, and just running around. At the beginning of the session, we had a little visitor hop up on the side of the wall where we were. For me it was a lucky frog...we got some amazing expressions out of her being curious and holding still ... it's a moment I will never forget.
One day Cate will meet this little frog again, but he will be a prince. How priceless is that?

Chris' Senior Portraits

Chris is Naches High School Senior, this was fun location session. We went to his home dugout. It was so hot, Chris was wearing his lettermans jacket for a few of the portraits and he thought that he was going to have heat stroke. We did portraits with his dogs, on the river, and downtown Naches. I can't believe how much Chris looks just like his dad in this portrait. This was the first stop on Garrett & Annette's Portrait Tour de Northwest (Tri-Cities to Naches to Coeur d'Alene to Seattle and back in four days!!)

Cute Cute Hailey!!

Hailey is one year old. So Adorable!!! If she sees a picture or a reflection of herself she says"pretty". She does a really cute fake cough and sneeze. I feel in love with her little leopard print purse. She is going to be a real girly girl! She just found out she is going to be a big sister and she has been practicing with her dolls.

Their Wall Portrait is hanging in the entry way of their home so Hailey see how "pretty" she is all the time.

The Corrales Family!

Meet the Corrales family! This session was so fun. With a little bit of planning and timing of what state fields are going to be in between cuttings I think we did a pretty good job. Erica is a rock star and lined up the tractors in the background.... giving it even more depth to the final portrait.

Inga & Don Wedding in Seattle

Inga & Don got married on a Thursday, on Lake Union in Seattle. They had a perfect small intimate wedding with a family and a few close friends. Inga's son Diego gave her away, that was such a special moment. Inga was my coffee Barista at Starbucks down on the Oregon Coast. Don is in the Coast Guard, and he use to go through the Starbucks drive thru hoping to see Inga. A true Starbucks Romance! All Good Stories Start at Starbucks!!!

Rex on Fire!!!

Nothing like living on the edge with starting things on fire right before harvest. Kevin, Rex's Dad had a little to much fun with trying to get this perfect shot. ;) Thanks Kevin for being such a sport!Last Summer Garrett my intern was also a sport... being a what I would call a city kid... we broke him into being a little bit more country. I think he liked it!

Sneak Peak for Kelsey

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful and sweet Kelsey. She was so fun to work with... so comfortable in everything that we did. We loved hearing her Grandpa tell stories and showing us pictures of her when she was born. Can't tell but he is a little bit proud... so sweet. Yes, you guessed it ... I teared up. ;)

We took her everywhere from the "Hamptons" to the peaks of Mt. Hood. ;)
Kelsey thanks for hanging out with us for a couples hours it was really fun to play in the sun with ya. See ya next month when we are back.

Heider Sneak Peak

Wheat harvest is my one of favorite times of year. It's one of the most beautiful things that God created, I think. From the rolling hills of gold to the smallest seed that does so much. Not to mention the plant itself is amazing! ... the sound of wheat blowing in the wind is amazing... how come they don't have that on a meditation CD?

Meet the Heider Family! Their farm has a special place in my heart because when I was in college I photographed their harvest in 1999 & 2000 I think it was. I loved the whole thing... family coming together to work hard and enjoy meals together. And with the Heiders there is always lots of laughing and good times.

This year is Kim's 50th birthday (sorry Kim not sure if you want everyone to know that but you should be proud) So it was time to have a family portrait now that the girls are grown up. This year Jill and I learned that "what happens on the farm stays at the farm." I can't remember which one of the funny jokes they are laughing at in this portrait but it is SO them. I was going through and editing for their order session for tomorrow and really wanted to share this one with you. If you know the Heiders I think you will agree that this is so them... you probably can hear them laughing. Love you Mark, Kim, Karlye and Amber! ...way more cute ones to come!

Finkbeiner Family Sneak Peak

So really the hardest part of my job is getting families to get their families together... Finkbeiner's are a good example of this. Kenton... their son hasn't been home for a couple years now. And this summer was his 10 year reunion.... so we snagged him while he was home to create some family portraits that have been long over due. Thanks Finkbeiners for sticking it out with us getting ate alive by mosquitoes... poor Garrett (my assistant) got over 2o bites in 45 min.
