Love seeing families at the Santa Event but even better when I get to photograph them outside of the event. Becki loved the idea of the lavender fields. Little girl Gray was such a ham. She really wanted to “pose” (lifted shoulder, very tilted head)…it was so cute! Her sweet brother was so good with her and loves her so much. Such a wonderful little family to work with. The weather was perfect, the backdrop was gorgeous, moods were great and we had fun capturing their relationships! Another beautiful family that I got to work with!
Jennifer is a wonderful mom! She is a hard worker! She makes things happen! She is her kids number one fan and her kids are her number one!
We had a session in the snow back in March but when I announced sessions in Sun Valley she really wanted a session there too! Sun Valley area is where she grew up!
It has a very special place in her heart and she wanted these memories with her kids. I appreciate how much she loves pictures and how much she values what I offer.
Her response when seeing her images is exactly why I do what I do!! “I don’t even know how to even tell you how beautiful these are.” “These are freaking amazing”. “I need more walls!!” “How do I pick??”
I still get excited for every session. I still get excited to show families their images. I still get excited to see the printed product. This is how I know I am doing what I love!
Thank you, Jennifer! Always fun to work with you guys!
The last time I worked with this family was October of 2009!! Yes, they were due for updated family portraits! Kara and I reconnected in CrossFit. She loved the idea of the lavender fields so we made it happen.
When they came for their planning session, their youngest climbed one of my trees. Well, that was a first! haha Her kiddos are very active and talented little girls. Adam and Kara are a fun couple! They are
full of energy, love and respect for one another. This family is so active. They love the outdoors! Hiking, biking, skiing…you name it! It has been a pleasure to capture their family! It’s fun to see Kara most mornings at CrossFit.
We are trying to talk Adam into joining us. We will keep bugging him! Thank you, Saperston family for trusting me with your memories! I can’t wait to see these on your wall!!!
***They went with a grouping that is so fun but since their wall was so big we supersized it! 😉 The seven square images are canvases.
***They loved the images of their girls and had a fun spot to display them. The software I use made it so we were able to choose the right size and the correct amount of images to fill the spot. The seven images above the window are 11×14 metal prints.
I freaking love referrals! I got a call around Christmas by some of my favorite people, The McKendrick’s. They were headed to Jason’s work Christmas party and thought a gift card to Photography by Kam would be an awesome gift for his boss. Um yeah!! That is an awesome gift, if I do say so myself! 😉 Only because I truly believe in what I do and what I offer. So here we are, 6 months later (because time really does fly) and I am capturing memories and relationships for the Martinez family! They show up right out of a magazine! They are seriously so beautiful, inside and out!Their oldest daughter walked right up to me and gave me a hug. I was shocked for a second and then you bet I loved right back! The lavender fields are not only beautiful but have a few pets running around that the kids loved!! The dogs, the cats, and no one was bothered by the bees. We laughed, we played, we enjoyed our time together. The youngest boy was very into the pictures and had ideas so of course we got those shots as well! In the end, Roger and I both got hugs from all four kids! Do you know how happy this makes my heart?!??!! Steve and Camille are high school sweethearts and nothing I love more is seeing couplesso in love with one another so many years and kids later. They have the most love and respect for one another and I can appreciate that! We created a custom wall of canvases to tell their story, this year, at the ages their kids are at. I can’t wait to hang these portraits for them!
This is a fun story! This super awesome family all showed up to their “Planning Session” on June 25. The whole family isn’t required to attend the planning session but they did and I’m so glad they did! I tried to talk them into their family session in the lavender fields for the following evening.Angie wasn’t so sure she could pull it all together by then and really wanted fall portraits. We went through all the planning details, booked their fall session and they were off to do their homework and I would see them again in October. About 10 minutes after leaving the planning session I got a text, “Hi Kam! So my family is liking the lavender idea and we are headed to the mall to see what we can find.” Of course this made me smile BIG! I tried to get that spot booked after a reschedule and either people were out of town, someone was sick, waiting on braces to come off…etc, etc. There was a reason I didn’t book it!! That spot was for the Peterson family!! They got most of their clothing planned but needed a tiny bit of help on picture day. Angie seemed a bit frustrated at the mall for one final push to get their outfits together and so I told her I would be there in 15 minutes. We worked together and found the perfect combo to make them look coordinated but not matchy matchy. We met that evening at the beautiful lavender fields and had a wonderful time! Part of their homework was sending me pictures of any walls they wanted to put family portraits on. They have a huge wall above an entertainment cabinet that has always bugged them. They really wanted to fill that spot.We were all originally thinking one real large one (at least 40”x60”) but really like the looked of three large ones to tell a story. I really loved getting to know this family. They have some pet stores in town that I plan on buying all my pet food and supplies at now. I really love their Facebook page and I love supporting local. Check out their stores! https://www.facebook.com/NWPets/Thank you, Peterson family! I’m happy to call you my friends! Looking forward to hanging up your portraits for you!
I am so honored to be the one chosen to photograph this family every few years. It is fun to see the kids grow up, it is amazing to see this couple so in love, it is fun to work around their needs/wants that I understand. Their eyes and smiles will brighten anyones day. This year we created a display of canvas and metal. Irene loves the canvas and David loves the metal. So I thought, let’s mix them together!! I bet it will look amazing! I have attached the layout of their wall. I’m so excited to hang these for them! Designing a wall specifically for them makes my heart so happy! We also created a wall for David and Irene’s bedroom of just them! Do you feel the love?? Oh man, I sure do!!
A mama with her three beautiful girls! How amazing for these ladies to get together and get portraits done! Family portraits can be so many things! Since some lived out of town, we communicated through text on outfits, and they took my advice on adding a few little things (bracelets, nail polish, necklace, etc) to complete the beautiful art of them!! Look at these memories!!! I was honored to take care of them at the lavender fields. It fit them perfectly! Thanks, ladies!!
You don’t always see them, but you know they’re there.
Crazy time of year with the end of school and family visiting but this family made the time to capture these important memories. Grandma and Grandpa are celebrating 52 years of marriage and visiting from Florida! In their short visit we were able to get together and update pictures with their grandkids. What a special session this was! We laughed a lot and seriously had a great time. The Barresi family means a lot to me and I am always honored to get them in front of my camera. Congrats on 8th grade graduation, Enzo. Don’t make fun of your mom for crying. And G!!! You better give me a hug next time I see you. You aren’t too big to hug me you stinker! Thanks for your assistance Roberto
😉 Glad you jumped in a few shots! Love your smile and hugs. Thank you, Lisa…love your smile, your hugs and your heart! Cheers!!
It’s always an honor when families come back. I actually just photographed the baby last year but talked them into a full family session this time. Most people are a bit camera shy but with some guiding and encouragement from me, they always have fun! With a little one, we had to make it short. Of course the baby loved the studio yard. The trucks and swing made him so happy. It was a beautiful evening to capture their relationships. Little brother thinks big sis is the best. What a beautiful relationship they have.
