Brockman and Knotts Family - 7/29/18

  • Published September 1st, 2018 by rudys

Another long time client of our studio, Robin and her family keeping putting their trust in us to record her family's history.  We photographed her two daughters' senior portraits and we also photographed Robin’s wedding a few years back.  Here we are doing all her family.  Check out her Dad with our cool senior prop.  It cracks me up!  Her dad just saw our prop and wanted to do some images with it.  Is he cool or what?  This is two sessions in a row!


The Knotts are big Chiefs fans, as you can see!  Again, you can see the variety that can be done with your family photographs! Thank you again for the opportunity of having done your family!

Hash Family - 7/28/18

  • Published September 1st, 2018 by rudys

Mike and Linda have been long time clients and friends!  They were finally able to get all of their family together for their family portrait.  I had the opportunity several years back (in my starting years) to photograph both their kids, Shelley and Chris.  WOW!  Check out Mike and Linda with the SENIORS PROP.  Mike saw the prop in our studio and he just had to have it for a photograph.  I told him he might have started a fad with senior citizens.  He cracked us up!!!  I Love It!  Thank you all for the opportunity!

High School Senior Fall Special - Class of 2019!

  • Published August 3rd, 2018 by rudys

Why should you use a professional photographer instead of your friend for inexpensive photos?

What we offer is quite different.  Think of it like fast food vs. fine dining.  Fast food gives you far fewer options, but it's fast and cheap.  Fine dining gives you a richer variety of options, better quality, better service, and a much better experience.  However, it's more expensive and takes a bit longer.

A digital camera doesn't make someone a professional photographer any more than purchasing a culinary set make them a professional chef!

Many are often overwhelmed with advice on true professional photography.  That's why we offer a no cost, no obligation consultation at our studio!
