The end of the school year is upon us and we’re getting a rush of seniors wanting photos. While it is getting late in the year to book packages (we do still have some time slots open) it is not too early for all the juniors to start thinking about their senior portraits.
Firstlight Photography is looking for 6 Puyallup seniors that would like to earn free senior portraits for the 2011/2012 school year and help represent Firstlight at their schools. We will be selecting one boy and one girl from Puyallup, Rogers & Emerald Ridge. All you need to do to be considered is send us an e-mail with your contact information and tell us about yourself and why we should pick you. We’ll be taking submissions throughout summer and will make our decision before the start of the school year. More details will be posted to our Facebook page, so make sure to check in and press the “like” button while you’re there.
I don’t have much to say other than to announce that our new wedding web site has launched just a few short hours ago and we are thrilled with the new look. Please click the image below and have a LOOK. If you dig enough, you might just find a special discount offer.
Tricia Fisk, wedding planner extraordinaire, from Weddings Realized is such a fun client. She and her husband Chas have stopped by our home studio twice for a 6th and 7th month maternity photo session.
Having Fun @ Your Shoot
These pictures show a couple not afraid of a good time. At Firstlight Photography we want you to have fun during your session. We never take ourselves too seriously – and we won’t let you! Our goal is to get natural shots. For our shy clients we pull out the studio dogs. Actually, who are we kidding? The dogs love to have their pics taken so much that sometimes we need to put them in our office.
Takin’ it on the Road
At 8 months we are heading to the Fisk’s home to do some nursery photos and hopefully – weather permitting – some outdoor shots of this super fun couple.
We can’t wait to take the baby photos! We love this couple. For more maternity photos visit our main website!
Firstlight Photography loves its babies! And we love doing birth announcements for you. As part of your maternity/baby packages, we can customize your birth announcements. We have many options to fit your budget. For more infomation contact your local maternity photographer at Firstlight Photography.
Why do I love my “job” so much? I love it because I get to work with some of the coolest people I’ve ever known! I literally just got home from their wedding, and I couldn’t wait to post this photo, the rest of the photos are still downloading as I type this. David & Mandy were so much fun to work with, the entire day just flew by and I ended up doing Mandy’s sister’s senior photos when the wedding was over.
I’ve mentioned Ubiquitous Journey (Ubi’s) in a couple of previous entries, so I’ll keep this fairly short. Robyn, the owner of Ubi’s, has invited me in to host a discussion about my photography later this month and I wanted to take a chance to invite anybody that may be interested to come. Ubi’s has a lot to offer, featuring a great selection of organic products, covering the range from loose leaf teas to organic cotton clothing.
Please come and join us

While I’ve shot a lot of weddings I’d never claim that they all start looking alike, BUT from time to time one of them will really stand out from the rest. The reasons vary, it could be a couple you really build a bond with, a really cool location or sometimes it is just the day they decide to get married on.
Yesterday, Friday the 13th, I shot a wedding that stood out for all of those reasons. The couple was very friendly and the bride treated me more like a member of the family than the hired photographer, there was a very interesting cast of characters and NO BRIDESMAIDS! Yes, that’s correct, the bride had 3 guys as bridesmaids, so I guess there were bridesmaids, but no women serving in those rolls. The bride had some music I’d never heard played at a wedding and walked down the aisle to “Going to the chapel”. Even after all the weddings we’ve shot it was a day filled with firsts and I’ll never forget it.
I have known Lisa Williams, one of the people responsible for putting on the Washington International Girl Pageant, for a while now, but only recently found out that she was involved in the Pageant. I’ve know her as a realtor until she asked me to take some photos of her daughter for the pageant. It was a pleasure, her daughter was great to work with and it was clear she was having fun.
The Washington pageant is coming up on April 17-19 at the Seattle Marriott Hotell If you are interested in knowing more about Washington International Girl, I’m listing some information from their web site and there is a link to the site in the links section.
