Wedding pricing – complaint and response

January 28, 2012

There was a recent post in the local Puget Sound area on Craigslist titled “Attn: Wedding Photographers 🙂 (Puget Sound)” complaining about weeding photography pricing.

Check out Nikki Wagner’s response on her blog NIKKIMAYDAY PHOTOGRAPHY – “Why Wedding Photographers Prices are “Wack” | Erie PA Wedding Photographer Response”.

This quote by Nikki sums it all up. “You will spend thousands of dollars on a wedding dress or flowers or a venue or on catering which you are going to have for only ONE DAY, but your photographs will be the only thing you have to remember that ONE DAY for the rest of your lives.

After all is said and done, “Capturing Your Memories” will be all that’s left “For A Lifetime”!

This is a great article from Mashable. The story shows you 4 Ways To Support the Troops this Memorial Day to honor our armed services with these online and social media initiatives.

I have also included a picture of myself when I graduated the Marine Corps back in 1984.

Thank you to all my brothers and sisters, past, present and future, for all that you sacrifice and do. Ooooo Rahhhh!

What to do this Memorial Day weekend in the Puget Sound…

May 27, 2011

…besides catching a Yankees vs. Mariners game. Are you not wanting to travel too far because of high gas prices? Looking forward to enjoying our great outdoors, firing up the ol’ BBQ or hitting up the holiday sales and scoring on some deals? Well, here you can find some great ideas for what you can do this holiday weekend, the upcoming weekends, as well as where to find a Summer Guide for our region.


Hitting road this weekend? What you need to know

Thousands of Washington residents will be heading to airports, train stations and ferry terminals this Memorial Day weekend as the summer travel season gets what’s unfortunately expected to be a fairly sunless start.

Memorial Day means picnics, barbecues — and great sales!

Memorial Day is upon us, and while your picnics and barbecues might get rained out, there’s a silver lining — you can save big at sales all three-day weekend long! (When in doubt, go shopping.) Here’s a handy list of Memorial Day sales for your reference.

Best Bets for this weekend: Folklife, seagull calling, Ski to Sea

It’s Memorial Day weekend, with showers in the forecast and maybe a few sun breaks. Does it feel like we’re in a rut? Here’s what’s on the weekend calendar:

Folklife Festival: The Northwest Folklife Festival fills Seattle Center Friday through Monday. Donations are encouraged, but it’s still free, if that’s all you can afford.

A weekend-by-weekend guide to summer fun around Seattle

Do you live for the weekend? Beyond being a loyal TGIFer, are you a TGIS&S (Thank God It’s Saturday and Sunday) kind of person — lazy as the Fremont Troll?

This pullout is for you. Here’s a weekend-by-weekend, stick-it-on-the-fridge, Best Bets edition of Summer Guide.

Summer Guide

Getting the jump on summer

With a lingering, cool spring that’s been noted as the best year in many for moss, we’re wishing hard for summer.

Do your dance, thump your drum, chant if you must. Help the Northwest summon the sun — and maybe convince it to stick around.

And maybe it will help if you spend some idle minutes scanning Summer Guide. Look for your favorite festivals and think ahead to days when sunglasses aren’t just a fashion accessory. When sandals may be worn without socks. When ice cream drips down the cone if you don’t lick fast.

We’ve got ideas for things to do and places to go plus eight car-free getaways — to ease the pain of high gas prices. And don’t miss our weekend-by-weekend picks to help you set priorities.

So put on some shorts. Pour yourself something tall and cool. Have a picnic on the patio. Sometimes it’s all in the attitude.

And just remember, when Mount Rainier comes out of the clouds, the sky turns blue as an alpine lake, and summer finally, truly arrives in Seattle: No place does it better.

Anything better than photographing a newborn? Yes! Photographing twin newborns

The Curtis Twins – Their home, Puyallup, WA

We had the pleasure of doing the portraits for Rodney and Sarah’s beautiful 4-day old twin boys. That’s right. They were only 4 days old!

The twins were wide awake and very active the entire time. This provided for a unique dynamic working with not only one but two active newborns. It was challenging to capture both boys at the same time but they were super troopers. Considering they were only 4 days old and used to being in a more enclosed/swaddled like position, they did great.

Everyone loves baby feet. We even heard there were requests for pictures of them. So, it just seemed appropriate to make it the teaser pic. And in true twin fashion, they both had the same pose!

The parents were awesome and accommodating through the whole process. The boys were so damn cute and the family had so much fun. Lots of love, laughs and smiles were had by all.

More of the Curtis twins portrait session can be found soon on our website at TiffanyRobert Photography.

And the winner is…

Carpe Diem

April 24, 2011

Peterson Family – Des Moines Beach Park, Des Moines, WA

“Carpe Diem” is Latin for “Seize the Day”. So appropriate for the Peterson family photo session. We planned it for today, Easter, but the weather didn’t want to cooperate. So, we decided to reschedule. But about 2 hours later, there was a break in the weather. We decided, what the hell, let’s go out and taken advantage of this moment.

Everyone hightailed it down to the Des Moines Beach Park. It turned out to be perfect weather for taking some pictures and the lighting was good. There are always fun things at the beach to incorporate in a shoot. The setting is always great. You can’t go to the beach and not have fun.

We saw a long log and asked the family to climb aboard. Then the shot came to me and we got this awesome photo. We took a few more shots and wrapped things up. Just in time too. Shortly thereafter, it started to rain. Another session that we elude the rain.

The whole crew had a great time down at the beach. Expect more of the Peterson family photo session soon on our website at TiffanyRobert Photography.
