Why we have a passion for printing our photos and why you should too.

Why we have a passion for printing our photos and why you should too.

Happy Monday!! We have been hard at work this year, making a TON of changes to the way we do things around here and we are seriously on pins and needles ready to share them with you. There are a couple of things we love about photography that really get us fired up...

 

The first is our beautiful, amazing clients. For us, photography is more about the relationships we build and the people we meet than the pictures we take. We have so much fun meeting all of you and your beautiful families. It seriously is what keeps us going everyday and it's why we do this photographer thing in the first place.

The second thing that we LOVE about photography is when people use their photographs to turn their house into a home. If you've ever been to our house, you will have seen that we have pictures of friends and family EVERYWHERE. This is so important to us because it takes those beautiful images off of your hard drive and puts them up on your wall where everyone can see them.

So often we hear about clients who get their pictures taken and they post a few on social media where they eventually get lost in the unceasing cascade of cat videos and political posturing on their newsfeed, never to be seen again. Then they fall into the black hold of your hard drive, never to be seen again. This breaks our hearts. We have a passion for people and their families and we want you and your family to be HONORED in the photographs we take. Every family has a story and we want those stories to be put on DISPLAY for everyone to see and hear! That is why, in the very near future, we plan to transition to more of a print-based photography business. Never fear, we will still offer some digital images for you to share on social media (because online sharing is fun too)! But going forward we are really going to encourage our clients to print and frame their images.

We would absolutely love to sit down with each and every one of our clients and hand them beautiful, unique, colorful, framed, hand-crafted images that they can showcase in their homes. This is so important to us that we are working OVERTIME to make this happen as soon as possible. We hope you will see the importance of telling your families' story through the pictures we take and displaying them prominently in your home.

Every family has a story worth being told. We want to help you tell yours.

If you would like more information about package changes or printing options, don't be shy! Send us a quick reply email and we'd love to get together over coffee or wine to help you SHOWCASE your images in your home.

Fri-yay! Weekly Recap #12

Fri-yay! Weekly Recap #12

Another week is in the books and we are here to deliver another Fri-yay weekly recap for your reading pleasure! We are settling into fall out here in the desert and are enjoying the slow change in the seasons. School is in full swing for the kids and fall sports have started. We are also gearing up for a super fun and exciting Fall portrait season and we can't wait to share a few fun changes to our business with you all soon! In the meantime though, it's Friday and, for us, that means we take a few minutes to look back at the week that was and share a little bit about ourselves!

This week was the beginning of our fall sport season and our oldest son Eli started soccer practice this week. Every time we do recreational sports in our community, we feel like we are checking off some sort of box on the "typical American family" checklist. Sometimes we even contemplate eating apple pie whilst also drinking Budweiser and having a hot dog while attending these "all-American" events, but we don't want to overdo it. Kidding aside, we love getting out in our community, meeting our neighbors, and just making new friends. In this age of social media and globalization, it is refreshing sometimes to get out and meet the people who live in the same neighborhoods that you do.

We also took the boys to get hair cuts this week for the first time in like a century. For real though, their hair was starting to look like a cross between a wet cat had a fight with a bunch of octopus tentacles and then they made up and decided to make a home on top of our kid's heads. We'd show you before and after pictures but they're seriously too graphic. This is a family establishment after all. You can understand our excitement when we found a local barber shop and evicted the octopus and wet cat that resided on top of their heads and made them look totally handsome again! Eli is always such a joyful child... can we say pre-teen???

Finally, fall family portrait season is in full swing around here and we are here to encourage all of you to get in front of the camera this year (especially you moms!) and take pictures with your family. Life is so fleeting and preserving the moments we have together in photographs is something that is near and dear to our hearts. We also want to encourage all of you to PRINT those pictures and HANG 'EM UP! They aren't doing anyone any good tucked away in some black hole on your hard drive. We would love to help you get in front of the camera and get some photographs of you and and your family this fall! And we'd also love to sit down with you and help you get some of those photos up and displayed in your home where they belong. We firmly believe that every family has a story worth telling. Let us help you tell yours.

Have a safe and happy weekend!
