Can you believe this is the first REAL family pictures we’ve had done? Sometimes being a photographer isn’t the easiest thing for your own family! Our last family pictures were done about 5 years ago…. yikes!! About 3 years ago I had my sister snap a couple of us that I set all up, but that is easier said than done.
A few weeks ago I received a phone call from Nancy, with Picture This Photography in West Linn, OR. We met last year after attending After Dark Education a year ago. Her daughter is now attending Whitworth College in north Spokane. She asked if I would be willing to take some family pictures for her while they were in Spokane visiting their daughter. In exchange she offered to take some family pictures for us, and I finally got a couple headshots! It was so much fun to be on the other side of the lens! Nancy is a pro, and was able to keep the kids engaged and having fun! After doing some of the family I asked if she would mind doing a couple of me with each of the kids. I’m so glad I did! I will treasure them for always! There are a few more family images, but I’m keeping them secret until our Christmas cards go out. =)
I took Nancy and her family to People’s Park in Browne’s Addition. It was absolutely beautiful there- the fall colors and light were beyond gorgeous. While Nancy shot all the images we decided it would be easiest to just trade CF cards, so I got to do all my own editing, so if they edits look familiar that is why. 😉
