I am so excited about this one. Of course I love taking images for ALL my clients, but it’s not every day that a girl gets to say she was contacted by something as prestigious as Penn State to do a photo session for them and have the images published in one of their articles! Obviously Penn State is quite far from Sandpoint ID, so you may wonder why they asked me…. the answer is that they were featuring Jeff Kuhns, a former employee who is now retired and living here in Sandpoint, in an article about the history of telecommunications. I will be linking the article below so you can take a look. They not only wanted images that captured Jeff’s kindness and great personality, but they also wanted the images to showcase Idaho.
Jeff is a great guy, and both he and his wife are just as kind as the people at Penn State told me they would be. I had a great time working with them, and I am very happy with how everything turned out. I will share the images below I submitted, and you can see in the article how they utilized a few in clever ways to make it appear as if they were actually IN the iphone.

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!
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.
