We had arranged to meet
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
at Volunteer Park. She was waiting for us when we arrived at the scheduled time. The sleep schedule for our youngest family member (4 months) had not worked out and she adapted easily letting him finish his nap while photographing other family members. She was lovely with our 3 year old granddaughter and with our four month old grandson after he woke up. We all had a good time and were very pleased with our pictures."

was very efficient in her use of time at the photo session, she got the photos to me quickly, and the quality of the images is top notch. Also,

is a very friendly and pleasant person who makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. I would certainly contact

again for any professional photography that I may need."

"What I was looking for
I had already tried one photographer, and had been disappointed with the resulting photos. That first photographer was a nice person, but didn't seem to have the knack of trying different
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
and she struggled during the session to get the lighting right, and that showed in the final pictures. After deciding I really couldn't use the pictures, I was looking for a photographer the second time around who would have better technical ability and hopefully work harder to try different approaches during the session rather than take only a few minor variations of the same pose. I found
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
’s listing on Angie's List, saw her samples on her website, and thought they showed promise on both those qualities. I also thought that working as a photo journalist for a long time would make her better at both technical knowledge and at trying different approaches to get a good photo. This turned out to be true.

How it went
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
has a nice studio in a stout old building in the SODO district near the Starbucksc Center. The studio is a large room with wood floors, and some decent windows to allow natural light in, which I think can be a real advantage depending on the day. She also has plenty of gear to work with, like those lighting umbrellas to add to the natural light. She had several different backdrops to use. That was useful, since she had me bring a couple of shirt/tie/jacket combinations. The prior photographer had only 2 not-very-good backgrounds, and I was glad that with
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
there was more to work with. Having more options really increased the odds of a good picture.

Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
was more than willing to try different combinations and had me sit, stand, lean, try different expressions--she had a lot of ideas. She herself would move around and try changing the angle she was shooting from--that was a big change from the prior photographer, who mostly shot from the same spot and adjusted the camera setting but rarely changed either my position or hers.
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
also had a good eye for which coat and tie would give the best results, and switched backgrounds to make it work even better.
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
was helpful and easy to work with, and completely willing to get my feedback and ideas. She spent a couple of hours on the session, and it went by quickly.

After working with two photographers, I think the trick for us non-models is to take lots of different pictures, lots of different ways. Many of the pictures will have [delete] inevitably have some weakness of lighting or expression, but if you try a lot of shots, you get several pictures that look good and a few that really stand out, the latter being the ones you pick. That's the approach
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
took. She was willing to take lots of shots and we got some that made me look better than I am, so I was pretty happy. The best pictures we came up with were very clear, well-lit, and she caught the right expression. They were just what I needed for my advertising.

After the shoot, you can look at a bunch of the photos on a secured area of the web and pick the ones you want her to focus on.
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
can re-touch the photos, though I mostly liked the pictures the way they were out of the camera--I thought a little too much re-touching made them look artificial. So
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
took my feedback and adjusted it just the way I wanted. As luck would have it that day, I had one of those sub-surface…well, zits… that gives you a slight reddish area, and the photos were so clear that it showed. She was able to get rid of that temporary blemish and still leave things looking natural, which I liked.

I also liked the way I could log onto the secure/private site and see the collection of photos pretty conveniently.
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
was quick to get them posted up there so we could work on them. I think she culled out the ones that weren't good candidates before she did that, but there were still plenty to choose from. One thing about the site that I didn't like was that it was a little cumbersome to compare two similar photos, or two differently-processed versions of the same photo, because you'd have to back out of one to go look at the other, and there would be a lag-time that made it difficult to see the differences. I figured out a way to put two candidates into another program and flip between them quickly, which solved that and made it a lot easier to decide.

Negatives
Not much. It took
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
a little while to do the after-processing, and I was kind of in a hurry, but since she takes a lot of shots, I can understand it also takes a while to go through them. The processing also takes some time as she works with the photos, because she works at it carefully. She was also willing to do extra work and process them a couple of ways for me to compare, so I think it was worth being patient.

Conclusion
I was very happy with the results, the cost was a bargain for the skill
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
brought to it, the time she spent on it, and for the results I got. The cost was the same as the first photographer, but
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
gave me more photos. I can always return to the secure website and get additional ones for a small amount but the best ones make any other ones redundant. I'll need to have photos in the future, maybe some casual shots, and I definitely plan to use
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
again.

"We were told that the album was to be paid in full before the work could begin. We paid 2,700.00 in October of 2007. The album was to be completed in 8 weeks. After a few months of not hearing from her, we contacted her and she said to check back in a month. Every month, she would say the same thing. Beginning in April of 2008, she stopped returning our calls and emails. After several months of non communication on her part, we began to wonder if she went out of business. However, when we checked her website, we would find new postings and could see that she was taking on new clients. After 5 more months of her ignoring our emails and phone calls, we decided to contact Angie's list to ask for their assistance in resolving this matter.
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
was able to complete my album in 3 weeks once Angie's list contacted her about our claim. It really makes us wonder why it took 11 months in the first place. She still has not provided us with any explanation for the delay. We are very patient people and would have understood if she was having issues with the album, but we feel that she took advantage of our kindness and that is very upsetting. We spent thousands of dollars on our daughter's portraits with
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
at each of her photo sessions and just cannot understand why she would treat a loyal customer in this manner. Due to the fact that she was completely unapologetic, we felt that we deserved some compensation. We asked for $50 for every month we had to wait for the album, which she did provide to us. It provided small consolation to us because at this point we are just so disappointed with her. We have the album now and we are pleased with the results, but because of this unpleasant experience we will not use her services again.

"We didn't understand the whole wedding-industrial complex before we started our planning, and I started calling wedding photographers a month before our wedding date. They laughed.
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
happened to be free, took beautiful pictures of us, our guests, and the day without making herself a presence except as another engaging and enjoyable person at the wedding. We were not interested in worrying about everything being perfect, and
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
understood and carried out that wish while taking almost-perfect photographs. The most important thing to me was to get photographs of everyone there, and she managed to photograph each one of our 160 or 180 guests, each in an interesting or flattering moment. Her flash was not working properly on a few of the portraits, which she noticed, pointed out to us, and offered us another, free, portrait session to make up. We had many beautiful pictures, so we never took her up on that, but I appreciated the offer. I don't remember the price, but I do remember thinking that it was a steal for what we got. The thing I liked best about what we got was that the impression I got from her website was accurate:
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
's pictures are of particular weddings, and the actual people getting married and the people celebrating them shine through-as opposed to wedding photographers who succeed in making people look generally attractive in their costumes. And the most important thing about my experience with her: I felt like she was glad that we were getting married, and that her photographs were a celebration of the wedding, not just documentation.

"I was a bit nervous wondering how my dog would react to a stranger clicking photos, but
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
is obviously an animal person - she knew just how to put my dog at ease. Also, she knew some tricks for getting good shots. Check out the photos I uploaded. Note that the actual resolution of the photos on the CD I have is MUCH better than what you see here.... the ones here have been resized to make them manageable for uploading."

"Grandma won a portrait session at the school auction. I called and easily set up an appointment for the session. We weren't sure what to wear, so we brought several options, and
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
quickly chose the best one. The photography session was very pleasant; the girls had a good time. He was able to jolly the 2 1/2 year old into participating. It didn't take long. Weeks later, I went back to look at the proofs. They are beautiful and intimate portraits we will enjoy forever. He is a high-end photographer, but I am still experiencing sticker shock. We couldn't afford to get all the photos we wanted. Though the pictures are beautiful black and whites with super care given to the development process, I just kept thinking they weren't THAT much better than other options. Though I'd like to go back, he's just way out of our price range. But if you have the dough, they are beautiful."

"For the past three years we have taken our girls to
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
Blossom at Christmas time to get their pictures taken with
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
. We called
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
and made an appointment. There are no lines! The kids get to whisper in
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
's ear want they want for Christmas. The
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
he uses is a classical
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
with a full beard. Our youngest was scared of
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
and so she stood on the ground and held her big sister's hand. Come dressed and ready to go. I think the longest we waited was 10 minutes. My magnets didn't come with my order so I called
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
and he personally delivered some replacements and threw in some extras. Nice! From his website I see that he does commercial and aerial photography as well.

Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
was responsive to set up an appointment on short notice to meet my schedule which I appreciated. The photo shoot itself was challenging - there was a disconnect on the specific purpose of the photos which impacted the setup she was doing and it got us off on the wrong foot. I was uncomfortable having my picture taken and while
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
had good intentions to make the session fun and comfortable we didn't really gel. I trust
Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
had high standards and wants to provide a great product but it comes down to a style thing and it just wasn't a great fit. She was responsive during the process to produce the proofs and get to the final photos. Ultimately I got usable photos done on the time schedule I needed.

Seattle Photographers Provider Name Locked
was very engaging and took great photos of us, in particular of my wife and her mother, of my wife and me, and of my wife, me, and her mother. She was punctual, had her equipment ready to go in a few minutes, and spent all the time we needed without making us feel rushed. She was a pleasure to work with and managed to make everyone smile. Her photos have been praised by everyone who's seen them.
