Fall Family Portraits (Sandpoint Idaho Photographer)

These photos were shot back in early October with the plans of using them for Christmas cards and gifts, so as to not be the Grinch that stole the surprise I have waited until after Christmas to publish them!   We had such a great combination of colors for this early fall family photos shoot, with the use of a nice big diffuser we were able shoot almost exclusively with natural light which makes life much simpler when you are photographing a family with three kiddos!

12/14/2012 – West Valley at Sandpoint (JV & Varsity)

Last night Spokane Valley’s West Valley High School traveled to Sandpoint to take on the Bulldogs.  I was on hand for the Girls JV, Girls Varsity and Boys Varsity games.  Below you will find a selection of photos from these three games, for more photos and to order prints visit my website at one of these links.

Abbot Family Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

I met up with the Abbott family for a “Dad and Kiddo Friendly” family mini-session.  The goal was to get a great shot for Christmas cards while avoiding hypothermia.  Most of the trees in the Sandpoint area had decided to shed their nice fall leaves for the winter but thankfully we were still able to find a spot that was still holding on to a remnant of fall color.   Here are a handful of the shots we were able to get in our short session.

No, this quite turn around was not prompted, I am sure glad I did not miss it!

We wanted to get one more look in our time together so we picked a spot where we could get a kind of washed out, back lit look to a few of the shots.

Ciammaichella Family Portraits (Sandpoint Idaho Photographer)

It was a little chilly for this family portrait shoot but we had our lights set up on their back porch which was only a few steps away from the warmth of the house!  There was also a bit of a breeze, but as you will see in the photos that kept the clouds moving so even in a short period of time we had a different looking backdrop in every photo.

Klynstra’s Family Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

My family has had the pleasure of attending church with the Klynstra family for the last couple of years and our kids adore each other, which makes the purpose of these family photos a little heartbreaking for them. This wonderful family is heading off to serve in the mission field for Mission Aviation Fellowship and they needed a good family photo for their prayer cards.  I was glad to help them out, it only took us a few minutes to get the kind of format that M.A.F. needed and then spend some time getting a few bonus photos for both of our families.


Tim & Todd’s Senior Photos (Sandpoint Photographer)

I have known Todd since he was a freshman when I was his Shot Put and Discus coach, due to the increasing demands of business I am no longer his coach but I still get to see both him and his brother Tim often through my camera viewfinder.  In the fall they played next to each other on the offensive line for Sandpoint and in the spring Tim spends his time on the baseball diamond and Todd will be back to throwing heavy objects as far as he can!


Cowell Family (Bonners Ferry Photographer)

A while back I held a contest on my facebook page and wen the winners were drawn the cowell family was selected and chose to use their winnings for a family portrait session.  I have to say this was about the easiest group of 9 kids and 2 adults I have had the pleasure to work with!

Play Time! 

After the portraits were done we set up a couple of lights in a shaded area and just let the kids play, it did not take too long to fill up a card with fun, unplanned shots.  Here are some of the family’s favorites from play time!
