Vacation to Ross Lake in the North Cascades

I am so behind posting because I have been so busy. I did take a vacation in September and we went to Ross Lake resort located in the North Cascades. Wow, what an adventure. The resort is located in a very beautiful peaceful area right on the lake. It is so remote that you can not get there by car. It actually takes a boat ride, a truck ride then another boat ride to get there which thankfully the resort provides. We had a wonderful time and we met some great people staying at the resort as well. We did not realize how lucky we were to get a reservation because most people return every year and make reservations a year ahead.

Jaimie’s Maternity Session by Bonney Lake Photographer

Jamie is one of my favorite client’s. I have photographed her family and beautiful little girl Jailyn at 3 months and 1 year. You may remember seeing one of Jailyn’s photos of her standing in her daddy’s army boots. Jamie is now expecting her second child(boy) and wanted to get maternity photos taken. I am so glad she asked me to photograph this special time in her life and I will also be photographing her newborn baby boy which is due in November.
Jailyn was more interested in exploring then having her picture taken so I only got a few with her, but the we still got some great photos during the session.

Boys will be boys

I got an opportunity to photograph three boys. Two were brothers and the other boy was their cousin. I wanted to do a nostalgic fishing theme and a baseball theme. I started with the fishing theme and got them all excited to walk down the lane with their fishing gear but, afterward I felt bad because they were so disappointed when they realized they really weren’t going fishing. That will teach me. Anyway, the boys were great and we did get some wonderful photos.

Emily’s Vintage Session

Emily is a lovely young girl interested in becoming a model. She approached me at a local event asking if I am ever in need of a model. I have had an idea to do a vintage session using a beautiful antique dress given me by a past client which I thought she would perfect. This dress is extremely small but it happened to just fit her. Emily was very easy to work with and did a great job modeling. Check out some of the images from that session.

Fine Art Maternity Session for Leana

Leana was interested in having a maternity session but wanted her images to be fine art. She was excited to be expecting her first girl after having three boys. I always feel privileged to photograph this special time in woman’s life. I think Leana looks beautiful.

Susan’s “Desire” Boudoir Portrait Session: A Gift for her Husband

Susan booked a “Desire” Boudoir Portrait session, which was a perfect gift for her husband since he was recently deployed to Afghanistan. Susan is one of my wonderful clients that usually books a session for her little boy’s (newborn and 1st year) photo sessions. Her initial reason was a gift for her husband, but she was very pleased to find out what a wonderful gift it was to herself. She arrived with a clean face(advised) and ready for professional makeup and hair. Nicol Wulkowicz applied her makeup on site. Once done, we then start having fun with the session. And these are sessions are so much fun. My intent for offering these “Desire” boudoir sessions is for my client to have fun, enjoy herself and allow me to capture her true beauty. I have included a before and after photo, which I am sure you will be amazed at the transformation. I have also included a few images from the session as well.

Beautiful Canvas Gallery Wraps

Gallery Wraps are a great way to showcase your photos on any wall. Besides saving you the extra expense and hassle of matting and framing your photo, the finished product is ready to hang and they look like a painting. I have examples on view at my studio.
