Another New Contest! Photo Party!

It’s time to launch the next new contest! Since we did something for the younger kids, I thought it’d be a good time to do something for the teen girls and the moms! 

The Premise: Photo party!
1. Have a photo shoot with a friend.
2. Send your favorite photo to me at, be sure to include your first name and last name and a link to your Facebook.  I will then post them to a corresponding contest album on my Facebook Fan Page.
3. Join my Facebook Fan Page.
4. Send people (friends, family, co-workers, anyone, really) to join my Facebook fan page and LIKE their favorite photo (i.e. YOURS).
5. The winner will be announced on Sunday, September 26, 2010 based on the total number of likes for each entered image. Votes are counted as likes on each individual image/entry. A person must be a fan of my Facebook fan page to like a photo.

The Rules:
1. One entry per person.
2. One vote per person.
3. Voting will take place from Sunday, September 12, 2010 until Saturday, September 25, 2010. Winner will be announced and contacted on Sunday, September 26, 2010
4. Submitted images must be of a female age 16 and above.
5. Photos taken by professional photographers, will not be accepted.

The Prize!
The winner will receive one free photo party of up to 3 hours at their choice of location anywhere between Eugene, Or and Yoncalla, Or.  The winner will work with the photographers to plan a great photo party from placement to theme to inviting the guests.  Drinks and snacks will be provided by the photographers.  As a additional gift, the winner will receive a 10% print credit from the over all order total. (I.E. If the guests order $100 all together and the hosts orders $25, then the total order will come to $125, then you will receive a $12.50 discount on your order.)  The photo party must be redeemed by October 26, 2010. A signed contract will also be required prior to each session.

Presenting Child Portrait Contest Winner, Asa!

One year old Asa was a BLAST! A true boy, he was interested in only 3 things, rocks, trucks and balls.  His mom wanted to shoot at the lake, so away we went! The shoot started with Asa realizing that the best game involved tossing his ball down the hill for his mom to grab and throw back up to him… He had a blast kicking his ball all over the place and he even somehow convinced me to stop taking photos for a minute to toss/roll/kick the ball around myself!  After a bit, we walked over to the water where Asa discovered the rocks. He loved them and simply couldn’t get enough of throwing them into the water. I think my favorite moment was watching him yell into the trees after I gave the tree a hug to show him how big it was!

A Country Western Wedding

First off, congratulations to Annie and Gabe! What an awesome wedding!  They had a fun country western theme and even though her dress wasn’t western, Annie made sure that her shoes fit the theme perfectly. Wheel barrows were used as coolers, and canning jars were transformed into wine glasses. The bridesmaids and flower girls wore green and black and all of the dresses for the bride and wedding party were hand made!  The ceremony was sweet, romantic and light hearted with beautiful hand written vows from the Bride and Groom.   Thank you, Annie and Gabe for letting me capture this wonderful and beautiful day!

Deadra and Jeff

I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot the first set of family photos since these two got married a year ago.  Shooting them was a lot of fun, and it was adorable to me how naturally sweet and loving they were. Thanks you two! Can’t wait to shoot with you again in the future!
