Here is a before & after from a recent Mother/Daughter Session. I think L looks great without make-up so it isn't a very dramatic transformation. For some reason I always forget to do the "before" pic until my make-up artist is just finishing and I go "Oh crap! We forgot the before pic again!" This time I did this while L's daughter was finishing up so I made sure to get mom before she got started on her pampering.
Below are some images from the rest of the session. We all love the image of them looking at each other and laughing. Mom was telling her daughter who has been married for a few years to get started on those grand-babies. I love being able to capture real moments of families connecting like this.
Little Miss Chloe is already 6 months old! Here are some photos from her session right before Christmas. Can you tell her big brother & sister are still completely smitten with her?
I had the privilege of photographing Bodie for his senior portraits recently. He is the wide receiver (hopefully I got that right this time) for Kennewick and we had a fun session over at the high school that ended in perfect back-lighting from the sun.
I have been playing around with Photoshop Actions today trying to achieve a look for the photo above that I want. I never have really played with actions before. They are kind of entertaining to mess around with. I think the edited result is a little fun and different from what I usually do.
Last September, I photographed the Quinceañera for one of my good friend's daughters. It was my first actual Quinceañera ceremony I had been to but not the first party for one. It was a nice change up from a wedding and I got quite a few photos that have become my favorites. I am honored that I was able to be a part of her quince.
Is this not the sweetest baby ever? Baby Chloe is one of my Baby Plan babies. I just love every detail of her sweet face. I can't wait to see how she grows over the next year!
This little guy is pretty much my nephew. He will grow up calling me Auntie Feeshie and think that my kids are his cousin's so you will probably be seeing about as much of him as you do my little ones. Meet baby Jonah....the first set of images are from him at the hospital the day after he was born and the second set are of his newborn session at the studio. I almost got to photograph his birth as well but it didn't quite work out. Maybe next time :)
My little one picked the winners this morning after breakfast and then spent about 30 min just throwing all of the entries in the air over & over. Doing actual small pieces of paper with a 2 year old may have been a bad idea in hindsight. At least she had fun with it.
Without further delay, the winners are:
Family Portrait Session - Lela T.
Engagement Session - Audeena F.
Boudoir Session with hair/make-up - Amy W.
Lela, I think yours was meant to be. She actually picked you twice. The first time I hadn't mixed them up yet so I put it back and showed her how to mix them and she picked you again.
I decided it is time for a fresh start and you are looking at it. Jones Custom Photography is my new solo business venture. I would love to take your family, wedding, or business portraits.

Everything is fine with Cory and me, I just want to pursue the photography side more and he is going to concentrate on graphic design. You will still see him around as my assistant especially at weddings. If you need a website or anything check out his page at http://www.designprintinternet.com/
