  • Professional Photographer Magazine Cover!

    We are very honored to have won the Professional Photographer Magazine Cover Contest!

    I always thought this would make a great cover. It was an outtake from a Holiday Cover we shot for CityDog Magazine. Although it didn't quite look right for CityDog, I think it looks pretty amazing on the front of Professional Photographer. I could not be more thrilled with this honor!

Alastair – 3 months old! | Issaquah baby photographer

Alastair and his family came to visit a couple of weeks ago and he was just the sweetest little guy. I haven’t seen his mom in many years and it was great to spend some time catching up and seeing her beautiful new family. Congratulations you guys, I hope we can get together again really soon!

2009 Clients – Digital File Sale!

I can hardly believe it is already March! I am just now getting caught up from 2009. I just started to clean up my hard drive from all of the sessions last year. Digital files can be enormous and they take up a lot of hard drive space. So I have decided to set aside all of the sessions from 2009 and offer up a huge digital file sale.

Digital files are great for scrap booking, Facebook, emailing to friends, printing extra copies for family, and creating all sorts of other projects. The are also a great way to archive your images when you want them in the future. Your child will have changed so much in the next few years. How fun would it be to do a collage from newborn through Pre-K. Not sure where to have that done? Well,
I have a list of reputable consumer labs that are great for printing just about anything you can think of.

So from now until the end of March, ALL clients who had a session in 2009 can purchase all of their digital files from their session for 50% off…a $500 savings!

Files will be burned on a CD and will be mounted in a custom case. You pick the image you want on the CD and the CD case. Delivery can take up to two weeks, but if you need files sooner we can work something out before your CD arrives. Send me an email and I can open up your gallery again.

Sale runs through March 31st!

Where in the world have we gone?

Well we took a little hiatus from updating this blog. We have been swamped this past month or two and are excited to be back in 2010 with some great new offerings! One of the first new things this year we are offering is mini-sessions. This is a great way to get some updated photos of your kids, pets or family without the time and expense of a full session. The session fee for a mini-session is $100 and will last about 30 minutes to an hour. You will have your choice of 5-10 images and smaller collections to choose from. Updates to the Investment Page will have more details. *Mini-sessions cannot be used to replace newborn sessions.

We are also expanding our product line to include some custom jewelry, some fun frames, folios, chroma panels and some different types of books. Product shots to come!

Also stay tuned for a huge digital sale for all of our 2009 clients. Digital files are a great way to archive and reorder prints for family members or to share online with friends and family. Next post will detail this great sale if you were a past client!

The last addition for 2010 is for people that are interested in modeling for stock photography. Microstock photography is where photographs are licensed for royalty free use in advertising, publishing, graphic arts, bloggers and anyone else who may need imagery for their projects. With a signed model release, the images that are uploaded to our portfolio can be purchased to meet buyers specific needs. I am an exclusive artist with istockphoto.com and my images have been used in Rachael Ray Magazine, Seattle Magazine, Book Covers, Cable Radio/TV, and many blog and web sites around the world. If you would like to be a model for stock, you must sign an istockphoto model release and in return, the fee for your session will be waived and you will receive 20% off anything additional you would like to purchase. Now that is one great deal!

I look forward to an exciting 2010 with lots of fun funky products and some great images!

Happy Holidays | Giving is Awesome announcement

Here we are on Christmas Eve! I can’t believe how fast the year went by! Tonight I am announcing the winners of the 2009 Giving is Awesome Project. Thanks to everyone who took time to not only think of someone but to email in your nomination. It was truly amazing reading all the love and thoughtfulness in your letters. There were so many deserving families out there, it was hard to choose just one. In the end we chose the Brooks family. They were nominated by the Gurney family and I am very much looking forward to getting together with them to capture their family this season and sharing a few of their portraits with you in the near future.

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I hope next year brings great peace and happiness to everyone. Thanks again for a fantastic 2009 and a special thanks to the families that invited me into their lives this year to photograph your newborns, kids and pets!

Football mini session | Issaquah kids photographer

The holidays are crazy this year! I shot this a couple weeks back, but am now just getting caught up with my blog and getting things posted. I had an awesome time with this family. This was the first year of football for this kiddo. The long practices, tough workouts and the many hours he put in this season paid off as they made their way to the finals. I think he’ll play again next year, he’s a great kid with a lot of determination and a big heart and I know he’ll make a great football player. He was truly a ton of fun to have a session with. I look forward to doing more of these mini sport sessions for kids around the area. If you’re interested, please contact me! Thanks again you guys, can’t wait to get together for basketball and baseball season!
