I took a break from portrait sessions this past summer. Had a few here and there, but took some time to relax and enjoy the summer. A cruise to Alaska in June was such a fantastic experience and a huge photographic opportunity. The almost constant daylight had me staying up late and waking up early and out on deck a lot! Mountain views every direction and the warmest days on record! Saw a lot of eagles, seals, and humpback whales in the distance while cruising. I was hoping to spot some bears, but unfortunately, the warm temperatures had them snoozing. It was incredible seeing the snow peaked mountains, glaciers, and ice bergs while being in upper 70 low 80 degree temperatures.
I've been entering some photography contests for fun and am proud to say that I've won several international awards this year! Of all photos, my photo of the octopus at the zoo has gained more recognition than I ever would have imagined!
The website took a hit earlier this summer with some unexpected crashes and I'm still not completely sure what happened with the domain. So, the new domain is www.faithkphotos.com, the old domain is still active and will automatically forward you to the new one for several more months, but then will be discontinued. I've integrated all of the social media sites and website under the same name of faithkphotos and you can find my work on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and the website of course. I've also done some updates to the website itself as far as adding more photo galleries and recently added a client information form.
Work on the studio is underway and instead of using the downstairs/basement area, Roxy Bun's room is being converted! Roxy will still be in the room, but will now be in what will be the entrance/reception area to greet visitors! The studio will have it's own entrance on the main floor with a small reception area and the studio right behind it.
So now that the summer is almost over which is really hard to believe and the kiddos are heading back to school soon, fall is right around the corner and it's time to get back to business. Fall sessions are now being scheduled for limited weekends in September and October and we're already booking Christmas sessions for November and December! Fall sessions are generally booked on location at local parks (Twin Lakes, Keystone, BY Park, etc), but can be done in studio as well.
