The Springer family was so pleased with their sons school portraits that I had done for The Learning Tree, they contacted me to do their family portraits! We talked about their goals, what worked in their home, their style, their comfort level. Soon after our “planning session”, a few hours after actually…I went to their home and helped them pick out clothing to wear. I really do believe that you can make things work that you have in your closet but also open to meeting at the mall to help buy new! They all looked so sharp and their dog was such a well behaved dog. I always encourage including your fury loved ones in a shot! The lighting and weather were perfect, everyone felt great, wine in moms hand (and photographers), we truly captured this family and their relationship.
I met with Denice for a complimentary consultation, planning session. We went over her goals, including who she wanted portraits of, final product needs, and a date that worked for their family to have their session. We kept in contact leading up to her family session on what they were wearing as that is so important! With two little boys, we both thought the studio yard was the perfect spot to keep their interest. The boys kept us all on our toes! We had beautiful results! All the planning paid off! They are getting ready to move, but they found time to capture what is so important, to capture their relationship as a family. Time goes by so fast! Thank you, Kester family!!
I met Ryan & Kendra through a mutual friend and loved them right away. Great people! They married later in life and have two amazing little boys! The boys kept me on my toes but I loved every minute of it! Between shoving pretzels in their mouth and drinking juice, we got some great family memories.
It’s an honor to be asked to photograph a family from your industry. It is a HUGE compliment to photograph my friends, Jim & Cindy from the award winning commercial studio, Tri-Digital Group! I got to know them through working out at A2O Fitness, they also generously donated to one of our Little Heroes, and we mostly keep up like the rest of the world, on Facebook. We met for a planning session to talk about what their goals were, where we were going to capture their relationship, what to wear, etc. They were going for a wall portrait, so we shot specifically for that! They had six images to choose from. Of course we had Toula, the lab in most of the shots. Toula is such a good dog!! She can hang out with me in the studio yard any day!! Thank you, Jim & Cindy! I think the world of you guys! It was so great to work with you and I can’t wait to see the portrait on your wall! Cheers!!
Party of #7!! I have known Natalie for years, through mutual friends but mostly through Facebook. Natalie is one of a kind! I love everything about her as I got to know her while we shopped for their portrait clothing. She is patient, she is kind, she is funny, she is beautiful! I enjoyed getting to know each of her kids personalities as we worked together on Friday evening. Her husband is a “gentle giant”. What a kind, quiet man! He has a lot of women in his life and he loves them deeply. Hunter is the only son, and his kind heart and smile will light up a room! He loves to ride his motorcycle, hunt, and I think just be outside with his dad! They are a busy family and I was honored to capture the relationships they have with one another! Thank you, Natalie & Barry!
It has been fun watching these kids grow up. Mom planned this session back in March so they would get a prime spot with the Fall colors. K & B (along with mom of course) were so fun to work with. They have complete trust in me, laughed and of course smiled through he whole session and went a long with almost every crazy idea I had…almost 😉 I love how excited they were for their session and had everything planned down to someone helping with hair. They all showed up looking marvelous!! I appreciate the efforts and excitement this family has…it paid off…their family portraits are just awesome!
Oh…the Coltrin family! ALWAYS fun to work with. These boys are so entertaining…non stop! We were playing in the foothills last night just focusing on family shots, the three amigos, the dynamic duo that heads this awesome family, and Zacory’s missionary portraits. They are remodeling their home and shooting for a more industrial and modern look.
I got to work with the mother a few months ago as we updated her business head shot. She contacted me again to meet her family and capture these perfect memories of their relationships and how little these boys are…so little. They are growing up so fast, and it doesn’t ever slow down. It’s always fun to photograph little boys, as I have girls and they are well…just different. Boys are always full of energy, destructive, they throw and break things. The grass, leaves, branches and old trucks kept these boys entertained! Thank you, Kite family!
…we see each other a lot. Our youngest girls are great friends and they happen to kick butt playing soccer together. We have gotten to know one another as we cheer our kids on at the games and travel to support our kids. My favorite is when they bring “Gram-tini” to the games. She is a hoot and keeps us all on our toes and laughing. This family is very busy so we ended up doing their planning session in the parking lot at practice out of the back of my car. Now doesn’t that sound shady?!?! haha They did a great job on their clothes and took me to a location (new to me) that was beautiful, quiet, and so private. We had the place to ourselves! They chose, The Improv for their wall. I love the story it tells…thank you and enjoy!
Brian and Cathy agreed that they were due for new family portraits. I met with Cathy on all the details ahead of time and she got all her “boys” on board. With a few clothing changes via text, we were well on our way. We chose Bogus Basin as our backdrop because they spend a lot of time up there as a family in the winter. Everyone was cooperative and went a long with all the ideas. In the end, they are very pleased and ended up with one large family portrait to hang above their piano and others to compliment it that will align their stairs. I know they will enjoy these images for years to come! Thank you, Crites family! I appreciate you trusting me with your memories!
