I've been Published!

I'll be posting some of my favorite images from this year's Valley Church Great Pumpkin Party soon. Until then, I wanted to show you that some of the images I created this year made it to the Des Moines Register!

I'm not sure whether they made it to print or not - I will be heading out in a few minutes to grab a paper. If they do show up and you see them, clip them for me!

You can see them online here.

20% off Canvas Sale

Posted by posted by Kindra Thursday, October 16, 2008 at

Our lab is having a sale on their canvases and we're passing the savings on to you. We will be having a 20% off sale on all canvas prints until Oct. 29th. We hope that when your friends and family visit your home during the holidays, they can tell what matters most to you in your life, your family. Canvases are a very soft looking, elegant, one-of-a-kind way to display your portrait in your home. You can have your canvas framed or have a modern gallery wrap (where there is no frame but the portrait extends over the edges of the canvas). We will also be suspending our archival fee during this time so if there are any portraits you'd like to buy for Christmas gifts, this is a great time to take advantage of this! Our accordion albums are great gifts and now is the best time to order Christmas cards. We have never had a sale on canvases and we may not ever again so if you've ever considered one, this is a great time to invest in one. Please give me a call before 5 pm on Oct. 29th if you'd like to take advantage of this great sale!

More of Ashlyn's Senior Session

Posted by posted by Kindra Monday, October 06, 2008 at

We photographed Ashlyn's Senior portraits a couple of months ago. We had posted a slideshow of some of our favorites but wanted to share some more.

This portrait shows some of things Ashlyn loves best. She likes collecting Converse shoes and enjoys making word collages in her free time. Her word collage was so cool to look at and it is just such a fun way that she expresses herself.

I had had this idea for Ashlyn's session for her to wear a really elegant dress against an urban, edgy background. Two things you don't expect to see together. Ashlyn loved the idea and we had fun with it. I like how her dress and the door complement each other with their colors. I think she looks like a model in this portrait.

I like how she looks like such a powerful woman in this portrait. Kevin did a wonderful job with the lighting on this one.

This is a new product we just started offering this year for Seniors. Seniors can get wallets with their autograph on them to pass out to their friends.

Ashlyn had chosen our top Senior session, the Luxe Life, which includes several different settings for the on-location part of her session. I think this alley turned out to be Ashlyn, Kevin and mine's favorite location of all. The moody alley suites our photography style well. For part of the session, I took Ashlyn up on this fire escape which was great. After we walked off of it, I felt bad because she had been wearing heels, but Ashlyn is such a good sport and was up for doing anything in the name of good photos!

Here is a collage we made up from some of her portraits.

Thank you Ashlyn, Anne and Danny for being so incredible to work with. You have been such a blessing to us. Have a great Senior year, Ashlyn!
