Just One......

For anyone who "watches" me on Facebook, you know that I have been spending lots of time taking photos over the past several weeks.  With the onset of autumn and all the beautiful colors, family photos have become quite popular.  However, I have been plugging away at my sessions to get them edited.  I am working on Jace's pics right now and thought I would share one in light of tomorrow's big game.  Tomorrow is Medford's Homecoming, and as it is in small towns across America - it is a big deal!  Our team has done a great job this year!  I won't be able to make it to the Homecoming Parade tomorrow afternoon as I will be shooting a wedding, but, I will be there in spirit.....Good Luck Raiders!  I will be sharing more of Jace's pics in an upcoming post......so, stay tuned!......

Time for another wedding!

A few weeks ago I had a lot of fun taking photos of Matt and Vanessa.  They, along with their entire wedding party, were so much fun.   The wedding was in a small town that didn't have any elaborate parks, etc.  But, it has so many fun and interesting places to take pics....all you need to do is look around and you can create beautiful images with your surroundings.  Thanks for a great afternoon and best of everything to all three of you!  (The first photo is this couple's beautiful little girl - so sweet!)

As always, I love to hear what you think so leave me some sugar....

Family Pics.....Just a little bit different.....

I absolutely LOVE this pic.....they both look so happy and natural with one another....

A few weeks ago I took some family photos that were just a little bit different.  Jacki wanted to have some photos that were a little more "vintage" looking so she went hunting online and found vintage clothing, etc.  We tried to re-create images you would have seen from the 50's and 60's.  It was such a fun photo shoot!  There were so many to choose from but, these were some of my favorites.  Let me know which is your favorite!!!!

A Fantastic Family!

Something a little different.....taking it to the graphics arena....

I have been so fortunate to have such awesome clients to take photos of...some wonderful people and great kids.  And these three were no exception.  I was amazed at how well behaved and cooperative they were.  (I would wonder what mom bribed them with but, have been with them before and know they are just great kids.)  You should be very proud of them....you are great parents and it shows....

Some of these pics are a bit different.  From time to time I will take a pic and do more of a graphics image rather than a photo.  Just another option that usually works best for children.  Alex turned 5 just a couple days before and is so darn cute so I thought I would do something a little different with his.

Thanks for a great session -  I truly enjoyed it!

Marshall......Senior Pics

I bet you couldn't guess that Marshall is in football....Medford Senior High quarterback actually and from what I have heard - he does great!  Can't wait to see him play in a game or two this fall.  Always lots of fun watching - even though it seems to be 10 degrees every time we decide to go to a game.  Oh well, the excitement keeps us warm.  Good luck on Friday's game Marshall!  I am sure you will do great!  As always, I had lots of fun taking his pics.  So, which one is your favorite????

Alex....Senior Pics

I have so much fun taking senior pics.  Each one is unique and different and I love all the personalities I have had the opportunity to work with.  It is fun to see how creative we can get taking pics with the things they love the most.  Alex was no exception...he loves to hunt and he loves his car so we spent some time coming up with some fun shots.  Here are a few from the day.  When he came for his session his girlfriend came with and we even got a couple of shots of the two of them.  He was such a good sport about the whole session....typically guys are not as excited about their senior photos as girls are but once they are here we always have fun and the day he was here it was about 100 degrees and 100% humidity (ok - maybe not quite that but, it was close to that and it did feel like it.)  To make matters worse, he had lots of "hot" clothing....hunting gear, sweatshirts, etc......Thanks for a great shoot!

Carli turns 2!

Carli was such a sweet 2 year old to photo....she has such a cute personality and it shines through in these pics.  I love the expressions on her face!  When she was here for her 2 year old pics, her big brother came with too and we got a couple of the two of them.....So sweet.........
