Four Generations Restored

I love this image.  Part of the attraction is the very skilled manner in which it was photographed.  Part of it is that you just do not see four generation pictures that are 100 years old.  Life expectancy was not that great a century ago.

This was printed on a type of photographic process that copies very poorly.  It just shimmers and there is only one way to photograph this and get any detail out of it.

Adding Members To Your Family Portrait

I have been meaning to add this one to the blog for awhile.

The Musgraves contacted me about photographing their family portrait.  This is a large, extended family with children and grand children.  They had picked a specific time and told everybody to be here.   But like all large family portraits, there is always someone who can’t make it – no matter how far in advance you schedule things.  Fortunately we knew this when I photographed the large group and left room for the people we would add later.   I would photograph the two members that were absent a couple of weeks later, and thanks to digital technology, added them in for a complete family portrait.

The inaugural Senior Achievers exhibit is now open!  We have four of Purcell’s top achievers featured in a exhibit in our studio at 220 W Main St, Purcell.  You will also see these in posters in windows around town.

The Senior Achiever program was designed to create community awareness of our outstanding youth and to reward and encourage those seniors who perform above and beyond the norm.

They will be on display from now until late May.  Drop in and see them sometime.

Leon and Nell Dennis

Leon and Nell came to me for their 50th Anniversary portrait. It is always fun and an honor to create a portrait of a couple who has spent the majority of their lives together. We had a nice time talking and getting to know each other. They were a delight to work with and it was an privilege to create a portrait that I know will be around for at least another 50 years.

Lois and Dan Engagement Portrait

Lois and Dan were absolutely a joy to work with.  We started our engagement session out at the lake to get some green goodness – watch out for stickers!  It was a blast putting them together and letting the “new family” play and have good time.  We moved to the studio to finish up with some more formal type engagement pictures, were we got some precious pictures of Camryn and her step-father-to-be Dan.

Congratulations to the Lois and Dan.  It was a joy to work with you.
