portrait FAQ's 2.24.10  
KIDS are fabulous.

they're fabulous just being themselves.
They are full of such life, such personality. I fully believe in photographing children as they really are, fun and funny and fantastic.
They're only this young once, and I feel it's a great honor to capture their little lives as they unfold.
Here's a couple of answers to questions you might have. Make sure you contact me if anything else is on your mind. I am looking forward to meeting your little ones.



WHERE DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
I shoot on location using natural light . I also really believe children are most comfortable in their own surroundings .At your home, your favorite park, pumpkin patch, .. You name it!! Pick something they like to do and the session should be a success.
there is no travel fee in the North Tahoe area.

HOW MUCH IS A PORTRAIT SESSION?
a one hour session is $450 it could take a little longer depending on the age but no more then 1:45:)
WHAT DO WE GET FOR THE $450?
the session with the photographer's talent, time and eye.The edit and enhancing, optimizing of images, an online password gallery with shopping cart for ordering and viewing prints.

WHAT IF WE DON'T LIVE IN THE AREA?
If I will be in a specific area for a commission, a wedding or commercial shoot then there's no additional fee. If you would like me to travel for your portrait session we can discuss options for a custom quote.

HOW SOON AFTER DO WE GET TO SEE THE IMAGES?
it usually takes a couple of weeks to get the gallery up and running.



WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR? WHITE OR BLACK?
probably not! I like to break all the rules of simplicity at times and encourage vivid colors and textures as well as the standard neutral colors. Layered clothing works well, rain boots, hats and hats. Siblings color matching....Please bring several changes of clothing which will give us some variety. I produce both color and black and white portraits so keep in mind some textures, colors, and patterns look better in one vs. the other - in general, bright whites and reds should be avoided. I love hats!!! I think I already said that.
the face is really the focus.
think Gap, Jcrew, mini Boden...

WHAT KIND OF PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?
we offer everything from albums, to announcement cards to loose prints to canvas. Contact me to get a more detailed menu of items.

Lake Tahoe wedding photography - some old film favorites 2.21.10  
I have been working on a new website and with that comes revisiting some old images. You know I have been at shooting weddings for awhile now, back when all images where captured with film. Although I still shoot film at every wedding it's only more recently that all negatives were scanned so I can share some of the old.
There will be much more to share but for tonight these a just a few that bring back memories. I shoot lots of weddings but for some reason I always remember the details, people some guests etc..... I don't know what it is but everyone makes an impact on me for sure and looking at 1 image from a past wedding, can sometimes seem like it was yesterday.
Yes my style of shooting, technology, my growth etc... makes a difference but it shows you how film IS timeless.
Now to watching some Olympics!

crazy hair day part deux 2.16.10  
here's my boy on friday. He loves crazy hair day! he could barely sit still the day before. I was surprised how tame he was this year with the no mohawk style. He had to go XC ski and he wanted to make sure he could wear a hat:)
