My Obsesseion

I have a little obsession and it's called photography. Ever since I started planning my wedding, I've been totally obsessed with photographers and photography. I've mentioned that I had Grant's pictures made every month for the 1st year and am heading down the same road with Claire. I've used several different photographers in this area for different types of things and site stalk most of them regularly. I even blog stalk photographers that aren't in this area. I just love beautiful pictures. In my ideal world, I would be one of them. It might not be so far out, but I don't really have the time to learn lots of new tricks right now! These are the photographers we've frequented in this area: Uchida Photography, Reflections by Tanya, Courtney Marler Photography, Tucker Photography, and Krista Lee Photography. The list could be lengthened with various JC Penney, Picture People, etc and even the occasional Holiday Themes at a studio here in town. I tell you I'm obsessed! I won't even go into the ones I stalk from other areas!

Claire just had her 6 month shots done and we also attempted to add big bro in a few. It wasn't quite what I'd hoped, but they're still cute. To see them, click on the Tucker Photography link above, go to Portfolio, and then to Customers. Our last name is the password.

Also, Grant had his 3 year pictures done a few weeks ago at Krista Lee Photography and I L-O-V-E the way they do things! I was wanting something more casual and bright with him this year instead of muted outdoor pics or black and white, and they delivered. I paid one price and got all of the images on a CD and I can print what I want. The only problem is there are a TON of good pictures, so choosing is a little overwhelming. Here are some of my favorites! I've reduced the image quality on these to speed the uploading, but I know some family members download/print these sometimes. If you are one of those, email me, and I'll send you the image at its original quality so it will be a better print.

  3. Your pictures are so great!!! I am obsessed with photographers and photography too! I don't think that you can have too many pictures. My only problem is that I am running out of wall space!!!

    We used Allen Griggs for our wedding pictures. We also used him for the first 18 months with Joshua and Abby Kate. Unfortunately he got a little TOO expensive for us!!! :( (But I will always LOVE his work!)
