It’s been a whirlwind summer : Sandpoint Custom Photographer

From the awful weather that plagued us for the beginning of the season, to all my client work recently and everything in between I haven’t had much time to really DO summer with my kids.  It was such a long winter, and we all felt very cooped up inside all the time.  We have been greatly enjoying the warmer weather of late, and in an effort to get our oldest used to the water for our upcoming family vacation we decided to get a little blow-up pool for the yard.  BEST IDEA EVER!  Not only did we finally get him to play in the water…. at least a little bit…. but our youngest LOVES it!  It amazes me how different they are when it comes to things like that.  Anyway, the first day we set it up I grabbed my camera real quick and snapped off a few shots just for me and while they may not be perfect technically they perfectly capture the excitement of the day and I think they are just too adorable.  They grow up SOOOO fast!


On a little side note…. I mentioned our family vacation above.  We are packing up and braving a LONG road trip to visit family in MN and WI for a few weeks.  I don’t know if we are crazy or adventurous at this point but I am excited about it either way.  I won’t be taking any more sessions before we leave, but will be back, ready to work by August 27th.  So if you were considering booking a session yet this summer now is the time to save your spot!  Hard to believe that by the time we get back summer will already almost be over!


Change is good : Sandpoint Idaho Custom Photography

I know sometimes change can be scary, but trust me these changes are for the better! Not only have I vamped up my website, and updated things that were way past due, but I have restructured my pricing a bit as well in order to simplify things. Now your entire investment, paid upfront to reserve your session, goes towards the prints and products you will choose to take home with you.

To book a session now you simply buy in at the basic collection price for your session type and from there you have the option to upgrade to other collections or to add to your order from the a la carte menu.

I am very excited to be moving forward with the new changes, and I hope you will all stop by to check out the site. And don’t forget to book your session today!

and just because I don’t want to post without including a picture of some kind here is a new recent pic of myself.



Spring Into Action! : Sandpoint Photographer

I was hoping to wait til Spring had truly arrived before I made this announcement, but let’s face it…. this is Sandpoint ID, and the weather is all over the place, and far from predictable.  Anyway, at least part of the time it is looking like Spring, and it’s hopefully only going to get better and better.  So now is the time to start booking those spring and summer sessions!

In order to kick things off for the year, the first 10 people to book a session with me will receive $25.00 off their session fee, and 20% off print prices, including digital files and print minimums.

Whether it’s been a while and you  need updated children or family pictures, you are engaged, pregnant, or having a baby, now’s the time to book your session and take advantage of this great deal!

You can either submit a client inquiry through my website using the contact page, or you can email me directly at a_welcome@hotmail.com

Autumn Specials! – North Idaho Photography

Autumn is my favorite time of year.  There is just so much to look forward to including the changing of the leaves, the cooler weather without it being TOO cold, the upcoming holiday season, and especially Halloween which has always been my favorite, and all the other festivities that come along with the season.  It’s also a GREAT time to get family pictures done to send out in your Christmas cards or to give as gifts!

Since the season puts me in such a happy and giving mood I would like to offer a special to all of you.  It will be valid for any session booked for a date between September 25th and November 21st.  The details are as follows….

1/2 off Session fee
$30 print credit with a minimum order of $350
$30 print credit + 15% off order with a minimum order of $500

Available sessions will be limited to first come first serve so don’t wait!

As many of you probably know October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  So many people have lost loved ones to this horrible disease, and I myself lost my mother at age 51 this past May.  She was an amazing woman, and in honor of her memory I would like to offer a special specifically to breast cancer survivors for the month of October.  Details as follows…

Waived Session Fee
25% discount on any order of $350 or more

Again, sessions will be available as first come first serve and numbers are limited!  And if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

*Offers cannot be combined with any other special

Back in action

As you may have noticed from my website we have a new addition to our family, his name is Archer and he was born 2/22/10.  It has been a little over a year now since I have updated my work because I have been on leave first for a rough pregnancy, and then time afterwards to enjoy time as a family.  I am finally getting back in action and hope to soon be taking on more sessions again and updating my blog more often. 

I apologize to any clients I needed to turn away in my absence, but I thank you for understanding.

And of course here is an image of my little guy at 1 week old, and a few more recent of both my kids.

Holiday Cards!

This year I am offering my own handmade designs for your Holiday card options!  You can check out all the available designs on my site, under the “templates” gallery, but I will post an example or two on here as well.  They are totally customizable with your pictures and name, and come press printed as double sided, 5×7 cards.  Friends and family are sure to be impressed this year to receive such a thoughtful custom greeting from you!

Pricing for the cards starts at $65 for 25 cards w/ envelopes, and there are discounts available for multiple sets.  Again all the information can be found on my website in the investments section…


And in keeping with the holiday spirit, I have decided to offer a Complimentary set of cards (25) with any order of $350 or more!

Here are two examples of finished cards…
