The day of my engagement shoot with Jason and Erin turned out about as perfect as it could be. The weather was great the whole time and the last hour of our time together the natural light was amazing. We started out in downtown Sandpoint, starting in the one and only alley that the town has to offer and then finished up our time down by the lake. We had a great time and I can hardly wait for their July wedding!
The class of 2012 from my church, Kootenai Community Church, will be having a special graduation ceremony in June and they needed a photo of the group for the invitations. Being spring in North Idaho scheduling a photo shoot with just one person can be hard, add in the often conflicting schedules of 5 busy seniors and you can imagine how hard it might be. We ended up rescheduling our shoot due to weather or illness at least half a dozen times, but then by what some people would call luck and others providence we had a short break in the rain on a Sunday afternoon and we were able to finally get our photographs. Here are a few from the afternoon.
Ginger Knits Fiber Studio is working toward launching their website and today I had an opportunity to work with some adorable models as we did a few product shots. If these don’t put a smile on your face I think you should seriously think about talking to a medical professional!

Yesterday I worked with Tim on his senior photos, the second location that we went to was almost perfect, the only problem was that we were not there first. As you can see in these two test shots a few Teens had claim to the spot that I wanted to use as a backdrop.
As you can see having them in the background does distract a bit from Tim so I thought maybe I might be able to bribe them into vacating their location for a few minutes while I captured some images. Of course they all have Facebook accounts so I offered to take their portrait for them to use on Facebook. Here is the payment of my debt to these five teens that were so gracious.
This last Saturday I spent a good part of the day with Kelsey taking the first round of her Senior Photos at her grandparents’ home near Priest River. Kelsey’s Grandfather graciously set up some hay bales for us to use and they worked out great! You would not have even known it was 40 degrees out as Kelsey braved the cold in a sun dress, cowboy boots and for a few photos her dad’s hat.
Since it was a bit chilly still we are reserving most of our outdoor portraits for the warmer, greener months and spent the majority of our time on some studio style portraits.
The last part of our session we broke out the uniforms and did some sports themed portraits.
I had a great time spending the day with Kelsey, her Mom Sandy and Grandmother Jeanie. We had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun, I can hardly wait for the weather to get nicer so we can schedule round number two!
