What a wonderful age – about to graduate and take the world by storm! Oh to be that age again! What would you do different? Me? Nothing! Everything I did then lead me to where I am today. There were ups and downs, but what a great life and journey it has been! I only hope this gorgeous young lady will be able to look back in several years and say the same.
We had such a good time doing her senior portraits, that we may have overdid it a bit. We had great light and a great model, so it was a little tempting to just keep shooting! Here are just a few of Kristina’s favorites.

It has been so much fun photographing 2012 seniors. They all have such great futures, and great opportunities ahead of them. And, so far — they all ROCK!!! Here are a few from recent weeks.

It was so much fun doing a photo session for this young man in and around Poulsbo. He was a very good sport. He loves music and is a rising star with an awesome voice. He comes here from Italy and will graduate from North Kitsap High School  Congrats Thomas!

 

It has been so much fun photographing 2011 seniors recently. Ivy wanted an “Anthropology look”, Tara was into vintage and Ryan just wanted to look cool. I had a blast planning and photographing them. Thanks go to Ivy’s dad for letting us photograph in his gutted construction site. That was a blast! All you 2011 seniors still looking for portraits – give us a call now to take advantage of our December Senior Special – 2 outfits = $99 Session Fee. Add an outfit for just $25 all through December!

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.

Family reunions are wonderful. You get to see relatives you haven’t seen in years. We hadn’t seen Ned’s cousin Rosie since she was about three years old, so it was great to see her all grown up after all these years. Rosie is from a family of musicians and has turned into a wonderful vocalist and is headed to a school with a great vocal program.  Unfortunately, we did not get to hear her sing as she had some throat issue the whole weekend. We are looking forward to hearing her sing in the future. Hopefully it won’t be another 15 years before we see her again! We are honored Rosie asked us to do her senior photos and it was so fun using the bars in Minong, Wisconsin as a background. They have great texture!. Take a look.

I met this young man a few years ago when his big sister was a senior. He has grown into a tall handsome young man with a bright future. It is such fun to see that happen! Congrats to you John and to the rest of the class of 2010!

Photographing seniors is so much fun. They are always open to ideas and — let’s face it– they look great! I’m a little bit jealous! Makes me remember back in the day. And I am talking way back! ; ) Here is a little cutie from North Kitsap — all grown up and headed towards her future. Congrats Sam!  For you other 2010 seniors.. Hurry!!! There are only a few weeks left to get those senior photos done!

By request I will try to start posting the Project 365 photos I have been doing here as well as on my Flickr stream. For the project, I am trying to do a photo every day. To be honest, I missed a couple of days this week because I hurt my back, but now I am back on track. If you would like to see the rest of the project, go to my photo stream

Here are the ones from today and yesterday

Payton really has intense eyes so I wanted to surround her in her favorite color, black, to really set those eyes off.

I was waiting for Ned when I noticed this fence right next to where we were parked and the face in the board just made me laugh.
