Can you believe Fall is already here? The air is turning crisp; the leaves are turning to the colors of a sunset and bam! It is time to start thinking about the holidays and family portraits for holiday cards and holiday gifts! We have been so busy this year; we only have a couple open days for Fall Color Sessions. So, we have decided to devote one whole Saturday in October to Fall Color Mini-Sessions to get in as many of you as we can and to give you a great deal!
The Fall Color Mini-Sessions will be shorter than our regular sessions – 30 minutes –and are designed for up to 4 people. Groups larger than 4 people will need to either schedule a regular family session (on a different day), or book back-to-back Mini Sessions. You will get to choose from 15-20 fabulous images for use on custom designed holiday cards or for gift prints. This is a great way to finally get that family portrait you have wanted to do and have fun doing it!

The sessions will be in beautiful Port Gamble where the fall color is simply delicious!
Mini Session Date: October 2nd (rain date – October 3)
Sessions will be scheduled on the 1/2 hour from 8:30 – 10:00 and from 2:00 – 5:30. First come first served. Reservations are a must so book now!
There are three Mini Session Package package options to choose from:

Choice 1: Mini session and a set of 25 custom-designed 5×7 two sided folded holiday cards with envelopes. (Choose from one of our templates at your preview session, or we can design a card for you) – $189

Choice 2: Mini session and one 8×10 for you, and a set of 48 wallets (to include in your own holiday cards) – $189

Choice 3: Mini session only – you will choose your print package at your ordering appointment. – $100 (print packages start at $250)
Additional prints and cards may be purchased later.
To book your Fall Color Mini Session in Port Gamble e-mail or call us at 360-692-1962 or 360-710-1435 ASAP. We expect the best times to go fast! Let us know which package you would like at the time of booking. All sessions must be paid for upon booking to save your session time.

They met in a pizza shop in Pullman, Washington while they were both students at WSU. Chris knew he had wanted to get to know Rachael better the moment he met her. It didn’t take Rachael much longer to know this was something special. Fast forward a couple of years, and here they were on a mountain top at Crystal Mountain Resort, getting married in a meadow with the last rays of sunshine of the day lighting their smiles. It was a very special day for Ned and I as well as we watched this beautiful young lady we had known for years as our daughter’s sorority sister, say her vows with our daughter standing at her side as a bridesmaid along with another of our brides from last year. What a great looking bridal party! And what a beautiful wedding! Congratulations Rachael and Chris!

Enjoy this slide show of Kim and Devin’s wedding at Kiana Lodge in North Kitsap. They were so cute and fun. They did a swing dance for their first dance and nailed it. Congratulations Kim and Devin.

Kim and Devin are both in the military in California so I didn’t get a chance to meet them until the day before their wedding at Kiana Lodge in Suquamish. It was so fun to meet them and find out they were such a fun couple. They are sweet and adventurous and pretty much up for anything– and very much in love. Here are just a few shots from a ‘get to know you’ session we did just after their rehearsal at Kiana Lodge.
