    You know that Christmas comes early for me every time I get to share  another beautiful home of one our awesome clients after we complete an installation of their new family portrait wall art.  Earlier this Spring we introduced you to the Stohler Family and  now…the big reveal!  The piece that we created for their front foyer is an all time favorite lay-out of mine for showcasing the “Best Of” for family portraits. Part of our Storyteller design series, this piece is produced on a Museum-Quality Giclee Canvas and at 40 inches square, 2.5″ deep…a total “WOW.” (Oh…and not to be overshadowed…we designed a flush-mount Signature Art Book featuring the entire set of session selects in the pages…The cover image that they chose is SO warm & inviting…even Sasha their Pug Puppy is smiling) Want more Decorating with Family Portrait Inspiration?  Here’s a quick link to more of our “Show Us Your Wall” shares.

    This is probably the perfect time to mention that we are in the “sweet spot” for outdoor family portraits – August through October is ideal for planning your session in the warm weather and Fall leaves.  That being said — it’s hands down our busiest time of year so please contact us early to reserve your date as our schedule books quickly.


    Cool guy senior pictures of Eastside Catholic High School Boy_Studio B Portraits

    Class of 2015 High School Senior Quinn from Eastside Catholic is tall — it’s actually dumb to say that but since it was the most obvious physical attribute that smacked me in the face when he walked in…it took me like 10 more minutes to really dial in to how flip’in funny he was too!  I had photographed his pretty sister Caitlin a couple of years ago so of course I might have expected attractive and polite…but this fella had such a great personality that it caught me blind.  We photographed these great outdoor shoots but I also love his “Ralph Lauren” style studio senior pictures enough to make that his sneak peek on our Facebook and Instagram feeds:-)



    Before and after senior pictures in the rain using flash_Studio B Portraits_0004

    Let’s GEEK OUT for a minute shall we?  For all of you photography enthusiasts who love a little technology mixed with their artistry like I do…I know you will totally love these before and after senior portraits that we created with pretty  Ellie from Issaquah High School.  I always say that we do our photo shoots “rain or shine”…and this session proves it! Let me set the scene — Sideways rain completely uncharacteristic of Seattle Summer threatens to dampen our session (but not our spirits) – we’re talking complete overcast and not a hint of sun.  But… Never fear…Flash to the Rescue !!! (hopefully you just read those last couple of lines in your best “Super Hero Narrator ” voice because that’s how it delivers best (heehee)  Jokes aside, I love “gorgeous natural light” as much as the next person but there was absolutely nothing attractive about the grey cast that we had to work with on this day.  100% of Ellie’s radiant glow here is “Faux Sun”… aka Intern Robert with a metered off-camera flash set-up.   So cool right?

    Thank you to Sorella Salon for Ellie’s gorgeous Camera ready hair and make-up.





    couples poses

    So I was stalking Pinterest (as I often do) and ran across this rather awesome display of posing ideas for couples.  I immediately sent it over to one of my very favorite clients Lisa for her upcoming family photo shoot to ask her if she thought it would be weird for us to make husbands practice their posing with us prior to a family portrait session  (haha).  She and I were in absolute mutual agreement – “UM…Nope”….not weird at all.  What do you think???


    Senior boy with bass guitar in tuxedo_Studio B Portraits

    Trevor is a talented musician with an understated cool that is further confirmed when you find out that he plays the bass guitar. (Let’s be honest…bass, drums, sax…all inherently swag worthy instruments even before you play a note, right?)  I have to laugh at the twisted tale of shenanigans that it took to get to these great senior portraits. It began with forgetting the tux at home…hit mid stride with a wardrobe malfunction in the button department and ultimately landed us right here – looking NICE!  An excellent exclamation point on the “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish” axiom.   Like what you see?
