Field Sunset Mini Session // Federal way Photographer

OK… I took a gander at the 10 day weather forecast and OMGosh….Its going to be a hot ten days! YAY! Summer is in full effect! So this will guarantee some GORGEOUS sunsets like the one I had when photographing my beautiful sister and niece the other night! It made me want to run a surprise summer sunset mini sessions since we will not have to worry about getting a sunset! So here it is: FOUR dates available Friday (tomorrow), and Next tues, wed, and thurs at a field in Federal way, starting at 745pm (so you will have time to get home and eat and get ready if you have to work). FULL payment is due at time of booking and is Non-refundable (unless you can find someone to fill your spot) but is transferable. Once session is booked I will send all session info via email! :) THESE WILL BE AMAZING… DONT miss out! I doubt I will have time to run these again for the rest of the summer time!

I have also created a little clothing inspiration board for you to look at as well! click here.

Learn Your Camera Workshop // federal way photographer

Its that time again….FINALLY! We will be offering our third “learn your camera” workshop! We are super excited and hope you are too! The last 2 classes went so great and so we are totally pumped for this third round!!!

This is a great class for many people and for many reasons: those that have a nice slr camera and want to know more settings than auto, for those that have a desire to take some creative control over their images, those that take a ton of vacations or day trips and want to document them or simply want to capture their beautiful family.

In this class we will cover camera equipment, camera settings, exposure, composition and touch on lighting! It will start with a lecture, we’ll have lunch (*snacks and beverages will be provided), then we’ll have a model to photograph so we can have some hands on experience, then a question and answer round as well! We will cover it all!

This valuable class is still set an incredible introductory price of $199 plus tax! BUT even at that great price do you want to save some more money???? GET A FRIEND TO JOIN YOU and you each get to enroll for only $175 plus tax each!! WOW! I will limit this workshop to 12 people SO DONT WAIT!!!! It will be held in federal way and approximate hours will be 10a to 330p BUT all final details will be sent to each person after they have paid the initial retainer fee. SPREAD the word!!

To book, it requires a $100 retainer fee and the rest will be due day of the workshop! CLICK the paypal “add to cart” button below!
