These photos were shot back in early October with the plans of using them for Christmas cards and gifts, so as to not be the Grinch that stole the surprise I have waited until after Christmas to publish them! We had such a great combination of colors for this early fall family photos shoot, with the use of a nice big diffuser we were able shoot almost exclusively with natural light which makes life much simpler when you are photographing a family with three kiddos!
Last night Spokane Valley’s West Valley High School traveled to Sandpoint to take on the Bulldogs. I was on hand for the Girls JV, Girls Varsity and Boys Varsity games. Below you will find a selection of photos from these three games, for more photos and to order prints visit my website at one of these links.
The first meeting of cross border rivals Newport and Priest River for the 2012-2013 season took place last night. I covered the Boys JV, Girls Varsity and Boys Varsity games and Priest River was the victor in all three contests. Here are a few shots from these games as well as links to the full galleries.

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.
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.
Cole and spent some time at a few different locations around Priest River for his Senior Photos. We had some great fall colors and Cole was great in front of the camera and to top it all of the end of our session featured a great sunset with some amazing clouds.
