Austin’s Senior Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

Austin is the keeper for the 2012 4A State Champion Sandpoint Soccer team and we worked together at the end of August to capture some images for his senior photos in.  Now that the season is over I was able to get his final choices and work up a blog post.  As I often do we spent the first half of our time getting the more traditional yearbook friendly photos, then when we had those finished we concluded with some more dramatically lit soccer themed photos and some action portraits.

Abbot Family Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

I met up with the Abbott family for a “Dad and Kiddo Friendly” family mini-session.  The goal was to get a great shot for Christmas cards while avoiding hypothermia.  Most of the trees in the Sandpoint area had decided to shed their nice fall leaves for the winter but thankfully we were still able to find a spot that was still holding on to a remnant of fall color.   Here are a handful of the shots we were able to get in our short session.

No, this quite turn around was not prompted, I am sure glad I did not miss it!

We wanted to get one more look in our time together so we picked a spot where we could get a kind of washed out, back lit look to a few of the shots.

11/27/2012 – Sandpoint at Priest River (JV & Varsity)

Girls basketball started over a week ago, but since I am still playing catch-up from the fall sports and portrait season  I have held off on shooting basketball until last night when Sandpoint’s JV and Varsity girls visited Priest River.

Ciammaichella Family Portraits (Sandpoint Idaho Photographer)

It was a little chilly for this family portrait shoot but we had our lights set up on their back porch which was only a few steps away from the warmth of the house!  There was also a bit of a breeze, but as you will see in the photos that kept the clouds moving so even in a short period of time we had a different looking backdrop in every photo.

Klynstra’s Family Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

My family has had the pleasure of attending church with the Klynstra family for the last couple of years and our kids adore each other, which makes the purpose of these family photos a little heartbreaking for them. This wonderful family is heading off to serve in the mission field for Mission Aviation Fellowship and they needed a good family photo for their prayer cards.  I was glad to help them out, it only took us a few minutes to get the kind of format that M.A.F. needed and then spend some time getting a few bonus photos for both of our families.
