Family Holiday Photos 2018

Such a fun photo session to shoot and card to design. Happy Holidays to all!


New Photo Series: Blue Marble Stew (Part 1)

Just wanted to share a little personal work I created earlier this year, and that has potential to become a new on-going series (?). They were inspired by a topic I chose to teach for one of my Earth Art classes, and then snowballed from there. They each have an underlying environmental message in them, while attempting to appeal to a younger audience. 


NOW Booking Holiday Sessions!

Elsa says, "Even though it's still hot enough to melt my ice outside, it is time to start thinking about your holiday or winter photos, and to go ahead and get a date booked!" 

I have limited availability this season for portrait sessions, so if you're interested in working with me to capture some unique family or child portraits for holiday cards or prints, email me at blondeshotcreative(at)gmail.com ASAP so we can get that (snow) ball rolling! 


Earth Art Fall 2018 Preview

I'm super excited to be heading into my 3rd year of teaching my Earth Art classes and offering these unique learning and creating experiences to children in my community. We'll be returning later this fall with another session of art classes, with topics and projects you won't find anywhere else! On select Wednesdays from 10:30-11:30am, we'll meet with homeschoolers to build our very own Earth Art kits. 

These kits will be put together with natural materials, handmade tools and art supplies, and are perfect for taking with you outdoors for some open-air sketching and painting. Kits come packaged in a hinged wooden box and will include watercolor paper, horsehair paintbrush, pigment dish and paintbrush rest, 2 starter pigments in containers, mini easel, and students choice of charcoal stick or charcoal crayon. Yes, that means your child will learn how to make a quality paintbrush by hand, with bamboo and real horsehair!! 

Class dates are: Wednesday 10/3, 10/10, 10/24, 11/7, & 11/14. 

Because each class builds off of each other, this session is available for full session sign-ups only, and drop-in classes will not be offered. *Advance registration is required*. Class topics listed below are subject to change as needed. 

Class 1: Create pigments and painting 
Class 2: Make clay pigment dish and paintbrush rest 
Class 3: Make paintbrush 
Class 4: Final touches/catch up, box design, prep paper 
Class 5: Review, assemble kits, display for parents 

More details and registration can be found HERE.

Microcosm Compositions, part 2

I just completed a brand new set (shown below) in this series, which has also recently been titled as Microcosm Compositions. Last year I focused a lot of my energy on personal work, and this year I've decided to continue with that. I have two series which I'm currently shooting for, so stay tuned for more to come. 


Gulegi (Animal Portrait)

Ever taken a photo of a black cat? It's difficult, but we have you covered for any portrait that seems impossible to get...

... and because our beloved pets deserve fun portraits too!
