Southern Oregon Creative Collaboration Styled ShootRead More
2 Things: 1- A new look will be rolling out soon for VHP! and 2 - I love Pinterest. lolI suppose its thanks to Pinterest that people are constantly "overthinking" photo shoots, and doing up styles and themes! I still often and mostly shoot the standard, but once in a while a client... usually a friend - will join with me in making sure we have lots of good, or a few of the perfect, props and setting pieces and we create something spectacular! Over the last couple of weeks I've had 2 shoots like this that just turned out so beautifully with just a few accents!
Maybe its the whole blanket theme that makes it work? I don't know.. its just perfect! - I will say these are probably two of my favorite shoots ever! And they just fell into place perfectly!
Special family in my heart for sure! I used to watch Quinn during the day for a while when we lived in Phoenix - she and Brooke (my daughter) are only a week apart ;) it was a trying time some days - as watching toddlers learning to share and play together can be... but oh so fun :) We miss them terribly and hate that we aren't around to see Declan more! But it was awesome to meet him and see them all again!Enjoy the previews! <3 As I remind all clients: Please remember, you will receive a disc of your photos with no logo on them.

Yesterday I had the privilege of shooting the Roat family! Kathy works with my husband, Garrett, and contacted me a month or two ago... She and her husband (and his siblings and their spouses) wanted to do a photo shoot for his parents for Christmas. [I'll skip the scheduling mayhem from before Christmas, Kathy :)] They surprised them with the plan on Christmas, and picked a date! That date was yesterday afternoon!I met with them at a park downtown... and Oh boy... I walked up to this GROUP of people... Not hard to find :) lol. Now before hand I KNEW it was Kathy and her family (husband, and 2 kids) and his parents, 2 siblings, and their spouses.... But when I walked up - that looked like a lot more than I was expecting... I have to learn all these names....Here we go! It was really fun though! I learned that for the most part... in shots of 8 adults and 2 kids...when the 2 kids are actually looking at the camera (smiling or not) someone else is either blinking, half blinking (because the eyes are still partway open you may suspect is BETTER than a full blink.... um. yeah. its not. ;) ) or looking somewhere else... DESPITE all that :) I think we did pretty good!
Enjoy your preview Roat Family! Hopefully this holds you over until I get back from vacation and edit the rest of your lots-o-photos :)
Atticus was "done" thru most of the shoot :) But his attention was drawn when the discussion of his prize for after the shoot came up... This was just as the pouting was over... "Hmm? Prize? OH Yeah!"
Hope you enjoyed!
