Every family should invest in a family portrait, and do so at least once every two to three years. Children grow – quickly – and families change (often as quickly as children grow). I am especially passionate about family portraits because I know all too well what happens when you get busy, and procrastinate. You might wake one day to find you have only one treasured image of a loved one, like I did… Or, you might realize your “babies” are suddenly grown, ready to go their own way.
There is no more treasured gift to provide your family than recording your lives in the form of fine portraits. This is a gift for you, your children, and generations to come will enjoy. Portraits in the home communicate a very deep, and simple message: This family is treasured, all of these individuals are loved. Portraits are not limited just to the people in your home, but the pets that make your days so special as well, whether cats, dogs, horses, or other animals.
A portrait consultation costs nothing but an hour of your time. The investment of a few hours (max) for your session that will provide generations of rewards is a mere blip on the radar screen of life. Contact me, Nina, use that button on the left side of the screen or call, let’s not wait any longer! NO pressure, no stress, just a friendly cup of coffee/tea, and a few minutes of your time.
I do create studio images, however, my work is primarily on locations that are special to my clients – a barn, their yard, vacation home, etc. I travel throughout the country. There’s no place out of our reach, we just need to visit, and plan!
Thank you for your visit to my site, I look forward to meeting you soon!
This image was created in South Kitsap, at the family’s farm. Our session lasted about an hour, thanks to careful planning. Working with animals is one of my specialties, and is never a difficult task. My family sessions are open ended. In other words, we’re not watching the clock. Small children and animals (hey, even big kids…) sometimes have their own agenda, so the last thing we need in the background is the tick-tock-tick-tock guaranteed to create stress.
For years, I’ve worked with the Kitsap Fair & Stampede, and the Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede program, as well as other Washington Rodeo programs. I’ve long created the images used by these young women for their photogenic competition, and watched as they delighted in their images, and held their breath wondering who won! I’ve photographed the Kitsap Fair Board, worked as the Official Fair & Rodeo Photographer for many years as well.
Senior portraits are always a fun event. My senior sessions usually involve two different locations (sometimes more, depending on what we’ve planned), resulting in images that delight both the soon to be graduate, and the parents/family.
