Well the website transformation is almost complete. It’s been quite the fall and winter season for me. This little cutie you see above joined us in October. So with all the usual end of the year photo craziness happening, overhauling my entire branding and website, while wrangling a spirited 2 year old, and equally tenacious 5 month old, it’s been an adventure!
We finally got them together for their first proper portrait session. The cool thing about these is they were just taken with window light and a Photoflex Reflector. I think it’s some of the best portrait light I’ve ever done, and the best part is I can re-create this look just about anywhere!!! You don’t even need a sunny day… It even works great using the one little window in the historic old brewery that houses our studio.
I’m super excited for 2013. I feel like I’ve really made some breakthroughs lately with my lighting techniques, and I have some exciting new ideas and surprises to add to the mix to with weddings and portraits. Also, plan to see my blogging style change a bit this year. I want to make it a little more interesting and informative, as well as blow you away with gorgeous pictures!
It looks like Spring finally arrived this week, just in time for a quick family portrait session at Greenlake . We had a great time walking around and playing with the last few Cherry Blossoms still on the trees. Shooting pictures in front of Cherry Blossoms is a favorite Spring ritual. The pink and white against blue sky or green grass is such a great combo.
The only way I can think of to post all the pictures from this wedding is to do an epic 3 part post. There were simply to many great pictures!
Since a destination wedding requires the client to fly us down to the location and cover lodging for a few days, we like to give them a little something extra, and do some pre-wedding portraits of everyone. It’s a great way to get some relaxed portraits and take advantage of picturesque locations you might not want to go to on the wedding day. We also caught a few of everyone hanging out around the pool, and then shot the rehearsal party.
