The magic background change family portrait

Kimberly brought the family in for a family portrait.  Like most everything, I now shoot it on green screen.  We didn’t discuss much about the background, so I picked a scene from a recent trip to Colorado that I thought would be appropriate from our conversation during the session.  Kimberly looked at the result, and said, “Wow, I love it.  I want it.  But I was hoping for a Christmas theme.”  No problem!  Find a Christmas image, drop it in PhotoKey and voila’ – instant Christmas photograph.

Kimberly on an alien planet

For those who have been looking around, you’ll notice that I’ve been having some great results creating with my chroma key (green screen) set up.

Kimberly came in and wanted something different for an ad.  I asked her if I could get really crazy.  Sure.  So I put her on an alien planet with a ray gun in her hand.  Keying done with PhotoKey 5 from FxHome.

Infant and Father

I admit, I am not frequently asked to photograph infants.  I don’t really know why.  Probably because I don’t market the segment heavily.  But the great-grandmother of this baby called to set up this session.  She knew exactly what she wanted.  Fortunately, the little one cooperated long enough for us to get the image.

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.

Lucy Family Portait

Many of you may recognize Buck and Greg Lucy. They run the farm supply store here in Purcell.

They brought the whole gang in around Christmas time for this wonderful studio family portrait.

This is another example of our family composite. Ever since we started offering these for our families, they have been flying out the door.

The Family Portrait Goes Modern

Gone are the days when the family would come into the downtown studio for a family portrait and purchase a print to hang on their wall. Families today are looking for something different – something more contemporary, something more modern.

This creative composite of the Wayland family will hang as a gallery wrap in their home. Gallery wraps – for those who may not be familiar with the term – are printed on canvas and then stretched on a canvas stretcher frame with part of the image wrapping around the side of the stretcher frame. It doesn’t need a frame and is ready to hang on the wall. It’s contemporary and looks great in about every living room.

The creative composite allows multiple images to combine into a single composite, removing the need for multiple frames of individual family members. It’s a wonderful way to have the family all together in one place.

A girl and her dog

The Clark family came in on a promotion I had. After photographing the young girl in her softball uniform, we had the chance to do some pictures with the family dog. And you thought a boy and his dog was cute!
