• I love capturing that moment.
    That moment when fleeting light attaches itself to an object in a magical way.
    That moment when surprise turns to tears or smiles turn to laughter.
    That moment when you feel you have the world in the palm of your hand.
    That moment when you realize you don’t.
    That moment when you delight in your youthful
    spirit no matter what age you are.

  • It might be a moment I’ve intently planned and
    choreographed or one that I stumble upon as it
    unfolds in front of me. It can be when I am surrounded
    by a world of people or when I am alone with my
    thoughts and wandering camera in hand. I love seeing
    those moments through my lens and hearing the shutter click.

    In that moment I know I have captured something wonderful.

  • LET’S GET SOCIAL!

This year we had two new additions at the Meyer family session. Baby brother Hank and labradoodle pup Reno joined the gang. Just two more reasons to love this family. I so enjoy taking their photos–there is always so much happening and so many interactions going on. We chose an outdoor location that had plenty of grass and open space for the kids to run around and also had a swing set for them. To add a little more fun, we threw in a classic Chevy farm truck for the kids to climb around on. It turned out to be a perfect spot for everyone to relax and explore. The smiles below seem proof enough.

Many times we find ourselves answering the same questions again and again. It could be bringing new clients in to your business or explaining technical aspects of your industry. Whatever the reason, it can save time and money to have a video library to refer people to for answers. Cherry Creek Mortgage has found this to be a good solution for them as they walk clients through the lending process. These videos can be added to a YouTube channel or website so that clients can be directed there for information on various general topics.

Here are a couple of the videos we have created for their library.

We always capture a variety of images during family sessions. Lots of group shots, individual portraits, fun candids, and of course photo bombs. Case in point, check out George below spying on mom and dad. I almost photoshopped him out but I think it’s so cute to see him back there. I guess it’s a little reminder to mom and dad that with 6 little ones you never are really alone;)

I’ve worked with the Meyer clan for years now and know how they like to use their images. Bernadette is a graphic designer and always makes use of her cute kiddos for her card designs. Her work is great so I want to give a shout out for her –you can find her at Meyer Market Designs  Walking through their home though, you will see family images in almost every room. They do a great job of using different mediums to print their portraits and also mix various art elements into their displays. There are collages printed on wood, fabric, canvas, and paper.  When we are together for a session I try to capture the kids in unique ways to let them stand out individually but also to make sure that when printed for artwork, the images will tie together. I wouldn’t want one child photographed with a totally different background than all the others. For instance in the images below each of the kids was photographed individually around the property and with the car but this grouping works well because there are two boys with dark backgrounds, two boys with the interior of the cab and then little Gemma and Hank have a nice green landscape background. They have so many fun images from this session that I will probably have to blog a couple more groupings…because I can’t help myself with all these sweet faces and freckles!

Hiring a professional photographer to capture your event allows you to focus on the other important components you have thoughtfully planned (speeches/presentations, guests, food and drinks) and helps contribute to a successful event. It also ensures that you’ll have the right images you need for printing or digital marketing afterwards. This was the case recently when NeoTract, Inc. hired me to photograph their event to honor Dr. Paul Kenwood, M.D. and Northwoods Urology as a Urolift Center of Excellence.
