Live to fight on another day!

I have always loved photographing ladies with muscles! Early in my photography career I noticed that dancers usually had very well defined muscles – and over the years I have been very privileged to know and photograph several beautiful ladies with very well defined musculature.
When I was photographing this girl, I remember thinking “she scares me” Lol!

Creative Bridal Shoot

Well first of all, I rarely – if ever “shoot” brides.

But this wasn’t really a bridal session. It was a “let’s do something crazy, creative, fun, and different because we can” shoot.
Elena works with me as an assistant on many of my photo shoots – and as my graphics artist and frequent model. This was our second trip to this location. My lovely wife Kris, was the assistant and creative director on this shoot.
Never leave home without your black lace umbrella.

We think the trip and the photo shoot were a great success and we certainly had a good time!

Crazy Fun!

This senior portrait client is having crazy fun!
She said she wanted to do something crazy at the end of her session like laying down in the snow and making snow-angels. I said how about laying down in the snow and making snow-angels in your volleyball uniform? And so she did!
Doesn’t she look sassy here?
She is a multi-sport athlete as you can see from the equipment and uniforms in the background.

We had another incredibly fun session in the snow and got some great images. Even if the photographer had some crazy ideas. Haha.

Box Skirts

Some time ago I did a sneak preview post on the Boxed Skirts and Plastic session. At that time I promised to post some of the shots that were edited by the models themselves – as soon as they got some edited…Lol! So here they are! (by the way, the image above was edited by Miss Elena).
This image was edited by Miss Heather. I think its interesting that the edits kind of resemble each other. That’s something that just happens as we all work and edit together – our styles rub off on each other.
We are almost never all in the same “mode” at the same time. For example this edit by Elena – she’s currently in her dark phase. We like to say that she has “gone over to the Dark Side”. Lol.
So there you go – images from the “boxed skirt” shoot where our models made a real fashion statement – making their own costumes and then editing the resulting images themselves!

Senior Spokesmodel

Meet Jocy, a Senior Spokesmodel for the class of 2012-2013. Yes, we are starting early – and you should too! It is never too early to start thinking about your senior portraits. Many clients have their first session in early June.
The makeup was the idea of Jocy’s mother, and a great idea it was! You can add on makeup to your session for about $35.
For part of her session, we went to a quaint (if not strange) little town nearby.

Call us today to ask about senior portrait packages. 208-734-2399

Box Skirts and Plastic

I had this loosely formed concept of a photoshoot using plastic saran wrap as a background – perhaps wrapping the models in saran wrap. From there it evolved to including tinfoil and a totally new fashion trend – boxed skirts.

Once the models have had a chance to edit some of their own images, we will post more here. Until now, this will have to do. Stay tuned please.

The Apprentice

One of my friends owns an automotive machine shop. You know all about those, right? They grind cylinder heads, line bore engine blocks, that kind of stuff.
I stopped in there recently to deliver some prints from a family photo session and saw his newest apprentice.
So I had to ask, “Is she a good worker” ? And the owner says, “Yeah, when she wants to be, but a lot of the time she’s just posing”.
“Hey, so what’s her name” ?, I ask. “Her name is Bill”.

While most of this story is true, some of the names and details have been changed to protect the innocent.

And of course we want to thank Bill – also known as Miss K. – and her mother for participating in this session. Miss K makes dirt look good doesn’t she?
