Of Babes, Brides and Barbie’s

Isis is Her Name

In a singular moment, the call comes: “We had the baby! Isis is her name, and it is time to make the photos.”  Only a few days old little Isis arrives in the studio with a happy, but weary mom, and a radiant dad.  “We found some leaves on the way down the canyon, and we thought these could be in the pictures.”

Isis--At Thirteen Days

Luckily, I had set up the lights and done some testing the day before, as well as found an appropriate table, cushions and soft drop clothes for backdrop.   What I did not count on was Isis’s short  attention span — a 13 day old does not have much patience  for the rest of the world. The time that we had was measured in seconds, not minutes and hours. We took breaks for food, rest, and attitude adjustment.   Fascinated with the bright lights, with Mom’s embrace, and in Dad’s large hands, Isis struggled through the shoot; the star of the show got increasingly bored with our infatuation of her.  After all was done, I realize that I am thankful for quick digital cameras, the speed of flash lighting, and a great family.

A Traditional Wedding

Tara & Kris had a traditional wedding for their special day at Mountain Springs Lodge  in Plain, Washington.  They had a gorgeous sunny day, and the evening winds did not blow enough to disrupt the ceremony.  Mountain Springs had exquisite service as usual, and coordinator, Jamie Newell, carefully helped the party to create a relaxed and meaningful time, sequestered in the quiet valley.

Not Really a “Barbie”

Heidi loves the Cascades, having grown up spending summers at Holden Village, near Lake Chelan.  Heidi wanted her senior pictures to be taken with a mountain scenic background behind her.  So she planned a trip, with mom, over the mountains to have her photos taken.

Leavenworth was perfect for scenic backgrounds; we have plenty of rivers and mountains, woods and rustic bridges!

We started in the parks near downtown Leavenworth, visited the old steel bridge in Tumwater Canyon, and ended up near a fishing pond close to town.  As with all teenagers, she wanted lots of pictures.   She is not really a “Barbie,” but she does have the classic looks with long blonde hair, and a gracious smile.
