I heart Texture-I heart Faces!

This week's focus on
is texture! And I love me some texture, I am quickly finding it really goes well with my style.

This picture is one I took just playing around of Winn, he SO hates having his picture taken and I so rarely get a good one of him that it just makes it so magical when I do.
IMG_0663sm and the texture just amplified the magic!

Be sure to check out more gorgeous texture this week @ I heart faces!

Something New- Salem, OR Photography

I don't do a lot of studio stuff, but I chanced into this lovely backdrop and just had to do some playing! I can't wait to share the whole story behind it, but for now that will have to wait!




This backdrop is for use on a very small scale, the max I could do would be two small children, one young one would be best. I think it would be perfect for some fun V-Day pictures! Feel free to email me if you are interested in doing a mini session for Valentine's Day!

"We are Family" I Heart Faces! Salem, OR Photography

This picture is one of my personal faves of the year! It so captures the boys in my family, sweet hubby in all his grunginess, Winn shoes off, shaggy hair and beloved Beaver shirt, and Reno in his happy-go-luckiness, can't you just SEE it on his face!


Be sure to check out other great families this week

The Best Of......Salem, OR Photography

Happy New Year! I hope it finds you healthy and happy.

To ring in 2010 I decided to try something new.

Below are some of my personal favorites of 2009 and 2008 since I didn't do this last year and I don't want anyone to miss out.

I would like you to vote on which YOU think is the best. Each has a number. You can simply comment with the number, or say why you love the picture, if you know the person(s) in the picture, etc. It’s up to you!

Those who are nominated can vote for themselves, they can email every one they know to vote for them, but please only vote once per person! The more people you ask to come by the contest and vote, the better chance you have of winning……

What does the winner receive? A complimentary session for 2010, and the winning picture on a 11×14 mount.

To sweeten the deal, I will randomly pull a number from, and that comment number will ALSO win a complimentary session for 2010! So it is critical when you comment to add your real email address when it ask for it. Voting ends Jan 10th.

Have fun and good luck!

Please use the number that is to the top left of each picture in your comments! please note, comments are moderated, no need to post twice they will show up once I approve them :)
















Free sessions must be scheduled and completed in 2010, and do not include prints. Sessions to be done in the local mid-Willamette Valley area.
