Tween Photos

Do you have child that is age 8 to 13, then you have a Tween! Yes they are in between what they call a young child and a teenager. This is a time in a child's life that should be documented with great photography just as much as when they are little kids or a senior in high school. Mention this blog entry and receive a Tween session for only $49 if you scheduled before March 15, 2009!

This photo is of Kate from a session we did last summer for her 8th graduation photos. Parents, these will be the photos you will want to remember your young one more than the traditional one second shot for the school yearbook. Call us today to book your appointment.

Kauai - Klein Family Vaca

After the busy fall photo season we like to take some downtime just after the Holidays duing our only slower time of the year. This year we went to Kauai again and it was quite enjoyable, which is easy to imagine. This is the rainy season in Hawaii yet it still rains far less than Portland and much warmer rain when it does. As a fellow photographer friend put's it "rain in paradise is still paradise." Our son Logan was a reading fiend finishing the first two Twilight Books, along with much time in the Ocean. Little Rowan could not get enough of the beach... playing in the water, building "sand castles" and the playground where she made many friends. Molly has spent time reading, relaxing and just plain taking it easy (I need to take lessons from her!). And there is me where I missed no more than a couple sunrises and sunsets over the two weeks, photographing as much as I could during the golden light and spending time with the family during the day. I did not always have good weather or a great sky but I sure as heck was out there. I did my share of reading, relaxing and even a body board crash where I stepped on a sea urchin. They sure are painful! I will post more photos later I am sure. Here are some I got from the many sunrises and sunsets on the Garden Island.

Rey Charles

We had another great session with Rey Charles. We did photograph him in the hospital when he was just born, a fun experience that provided some great images as well. Now little Rey is growing up fast and at 3 months has obviously changed a lot. It was tough yet we did get him to "sit" in one of our very small chairs for a shot as well which is not always the case for babies as young as him. Here are some of the many great expressions we captured from this session.
