New Career, New You – Headshots Session

Ms. K. is starting a new career. She is stepping out and going for something new, which as we all know can be a little intimidating. She did a quick search, found me and contacted me to see if I could get her in as soon as possible. I only had one day available, but it was perfect for both of. Like me, Ms. K. is a little camera shy. But as we began to talk, our conversation soon turned into laughter. I truly enjoyed watching her go from nervous to just enjoying the moment.

Full of Smiles – Newborn Session

At almost 2 months old, this little one slept like a newborn. And when she was awake, she was bright eyed and full of smiles. Because she was just under 2 months old, she wanted to do a lot of stretching, so we took a few with her first outfit and then changed her to get her wrapped up. She was quite cozy and didn’t mind that she wasn’t able to stretch those feet and arms. She ended up falling back asleep again. We then began to unwrap and she just went with it.

Thanks mom and dad for choosing me! She’s so beautiful and it was a pleasure to be able to provide these images for you!

New All-Digital Session Options

Although I strongly believe in importance of prints, I do understand that “digital images” are in demand. So I made some changes, a few additions and came up with some new options for “All Digital” sessions. These options are in additional to my original “session fees” options; which are now under “Session Only” on my website.

So, if you prefer to have a session where you will automatically receive digital images so you may print at your leisure, then these are for you. These sessions may include additional  images in your gallery, but you will automatically receive the amount listed in the options below. You will order them as a special package (no additional cost) and then they will be delivered through our download site.

And because I am such a strong believer in prints, I am including a printed product with each session.

  • Images will also be uploaded onto our partner site which offers prints and other photo products with professional quality at consumer prices.

It’s H-O-T!

This weekend along with the upcoming week is supposed to be hitting some high temperatures for us here in the Pacific Northwest. This morning, I woke up to a house that was already 70 degrees (inside). Like many who live here on Whidbey Island, we don’t have air conditioning in our house. So on these days, we keep our house as dark as possible, keep TV’s and computers off and turn on the fans in every room. Opening windows didn’t help today since there was little to no breeze. And when there was finally a breeze, it was not coming through our windows. Boo!

My eldest took off with friends for the day and so I took my other two to the annual Anacortes Water Festival. We built a small wooden boat for my boy, bought a dragon doll for my daughter and then walked around and checked out everything. We didn’t stay too long since I forgot to pull cash out before heading over (Oops.. Mom fail) and there were no ATMs that I could find. It was hotter up in Anacortes and my kids were ready to go after all the walking. With no money to buy drinks, we were out of there.

Once we got home, we ate, relaxed and then the kids got changed into their swim suits and we turned on the sprinklers in our back yard. I had to water the grass and plants anyhow, so it was a perfect opportunity for them. My son resisted at first, but with a little bit of gentle nudging, he turned that frown upside down and was having fun with his sister. I was dodging water drops while trying to quickly get in a good spot to watch and take pictures of them. I got wet a few times, but I protected the camera (Go me!). I’m not sure how long we were out there, but the kids were posing, jumping and then running back and forth to me to see the pictures on the back of the camera. They would look and either agree to do their pose again or give each other high-fives on their coordinated jumps and/or silly faces. Crazy kids.

What did your kids do today?
