Greengate Images

Hi, friends! I am trying not to harp on my Etsy shop too much, but I wanted to remind you of my grand opening sale. One more week!

Oh hey, are you having trouble visualizing the photo prints hanging on a wall? Here are a few mockups! Click the image to visit the listing.

(To be clear, I didn't take the room photos, only my own photos that are inserted into the frames--the rooms are stock images.)

I now have an official listing for large prints, though you can always request any size and we can discuss the cost and feasibility.

Are you wishing the prints came framed? I will soon add a listing for framed print pricing, but you are welcome to inquire before then and I can give you a quote.

Thanks for looking! And if you ever see an image on my blog that you'd like me to put in my shop, please let me know. I welcome suggestions because I have a hard time choosing. I am trying to add photos regularly, but I'm a little backlogged right now due to the time of year when I'm out taking more photos than I am inside editing and prepping them. :)

Happy Memorial Day!

Portraits: Katt

The other day I had a faaaaaabulous time photographing Katt over at Bush Park. The weather was perfect and Katt was a wonderful model. She made it so easy to take pictures with barely any posing instruction required. Plus, she's a beauty, isn't she?

I had a very hard time narrowing these down, but I tried not to obsess too much about my choices. This is a pretty good sample of the evening. Read between the photos for more info on Katt!

What's your favorite drink to order at Starbucks? I love coffee in general, but when I'm at Starbucks, I like to get a caramel Macchiato with extra caramel and an extra shot or two. :) But I do love going to small local coffee shops as well. Broadway Commons is one of my favorites! They have an awesome hazelnut black and white mocha...yum!

Describe your personality.
I like to call myself an "omnivert." (I read about it in an article once, and I’m not sure if it's really a thing or not, but I totally related to it!) From what I gathered, an omnivert is someone who is a mix between an introvert and an extrovert. So while I love to be out and about with friends being social, I can flip to the other side of the spectrum where I can also be happy just being at home with my two cats and watching Netflix. :)

I think that could describe a few of my friends. There definitely needs to be a name for the middle grounders.

What did you study in college? I was a General Psych major.

Katt was really excited to have portraits done with wisteria because it's one of her favorite flowers. We got there just in time before the flowers all died off, and it was sooooo beautiful on that porch!

(I'm trying to tile two verticals next to each other here, and it shows up correctly on my browser but I'm wondering how it looks for you? Let me know! I'd love it if it worked now--in the past it's been all weird in the final published entry.)

This photo looks like I used flash, but it's just the lighting in this particular spot.

What's your favorite color? Oh gosh, I go through phases of colors that I like... In high school I was all about neon colors and funky patterns. Now that I'm a little bit older, I find myself gravitating towards earth-toned neutrals and pastels. For instance a few of my favorite colors right now are: maroon, olive, navy blue, gold, and blush pink (the last three are also my wedding colors! :))

That's right--sorry guys, she's engaged! Katt is getting married this September. She's been busily managing to keep up with wedding plans and a demanding job (I know, because we're coworkers and her department has a lot on their plate!). And doing a portrait session with me!

I'm loving the roses at Bush Park right now. I have lots of rose photos to show you sometime.


There's that ring!

What are your favorite things to do in your spare time? I recently got a bike for my birthday from my fiancé’s family, so I’ll be doing a lot of riding during my summer. I love spending time crafting with my best friend Becca, I have favorite shows that I like to watch, I love spending time with my fiancé and his family, and I love love love going to the beach (it's one of my most favorite places to be!).

I also know she's very artistic! I have proof because I took a watercolor workshop with her.

She was at her car for an outfit change and I bugged her for a photo. She looked cute, I couldn't help it. PS Thanks to Katt's friend who loaned her the hats! They were so fun to work with--they look awesome on Katt.

Oh man, the lighting here was SO awesome, I just wanted to take a thousand pictures in this one spot.

Don't look at my cropping on this....I know you're not supposed to chop the hands there, but I just really like this photo anyway.

Where is a place you'd like to travel to soon? Hmmm, well I'd love to go to Europe, and my fiancé and I are trying to plan a trip sometime in the near future... But for now, I’m looking forward to going to Seattle for our honeymoon. :)

Thank you so much for looking, and thanks again Katt for a super fun evening! We should do this again sometime!

I wanted to continue with another catchup post tonight, but I can't! I'm tired and there's a lot going on this weekend, so...maybe I'll pick this back up next week. Here is just one for now.

Have a great weekend!

Photo marathon

Alright, I'm just going to pick up where I left off yesterday and post more photos from March. NOTE: These are NOT my best work, but I wanted you to see some of the flowers and scenes I encountered, so I'm posting them for the subject instead of the photography.

[NOTE 2: I tried to post these more efficiently and it's making the captions all tiny. I guess I must hand-code everything all the time then, Blogger?]
