A Party of Hearty Harrises

If there were a family that were to truly carry love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, as close to how Jesus did as possible, this would be the family. I am always in awe of how well-behaved Jake and Liam are, and how even-tempered Rick and Amy are. The two are wonderful parents and have a Christ-centered perspective, helping to form a healthy and pleasant family atmosphere. (CLICK ON THE PHOTOS BELOW TO SEE FULL IMAGES)

Oh and...REALLY? It MUST be against some law to look this good AND be a mom. For real. Amy Harris is just so beautiful, both inside and out! She is one of those people that brings out the best in others, and is also very motivated. She NEVER does anything half-way.

 Look at how wonderful this family is! Amazing how one can tell that just by looking at these pictures!

 Willamette was a great venue choice...and ALL AMY'S IDEA :) Great choice, I must say! Along this adventure, Rick told me that being there reminded him of an Ivy League School. The place is HUGE! I'm glad I got there early so I could scope out the best spots for shooting...but I didn't even go back far enough to see this huge, amazing, looming building! I like it.

 This tree was so much fun. And it was as if that bench was reserved specifically for this family. I think I am in love with this spot the most out of any that we visited.
 I loved doing shots with this mirror. Something I've never tried before, and kind of weird and interesting for both me and the fam! But it worked out! Pretty clever & snazzy result, huh?

                           Lastly, "Liam and Dad". :) I thought this was a cute one to end on a happy note!

 Toodles, Photogenique Watch! Until next time...

Book Your Christmas Shoot With Me!

Hello, friends! I would love to come closer to each client I work with, and I think that, with Christmas just around the bend, now is one of the best times to do just that. Here is an example of a Christmas card I made using some shots that I took in 2008, when I had a camera that was not really "up to par". But I worked with what I had, and here's what I came up with. :)

{and i know those darn ads on the side get in the way of the photo, but just click it to see the full view!}

The cost for a family photo shoot with a disc containing 80 photos is worth $100 and approximately an hour and a half of your time. Twenty-five 4" x 6" prints of the card plus the disc would add up to $150. "

I am doing a family photo shoot this Sunday, and I'm quite excited about it! A new post should be up soon with lovely, holiday-esque photos of the wonderful Harris family, so stay tuned, folks! :)
