{M} Graduates!

| Wednesday, November 17, 2010
My cousin Mariah is a senior this year so she needed some senior pics. We had decided to do them today but then the morning was just dumping rain so we thought we were gonna cancel. Then the rain stopped so it was back on. Then it started raining again....well by the time she got here it had stopped raining and the sun came out a little bit. PERFECT day for pictures. It was overcast for the most part and the sun down by the water was wonderful. The only downside...FREEZING cold. Poor Mariah wasn't dressed for warmth. But I think it was worth it we got some good shots in! Let's hope the weather forecast is wrong wrong wrong and it doesn't snow this week!

{M} Family

| Thursday, October 7, 2010
This past weekend I got to take pictures for this cute family. We went all over downtown (which seems to be my go-to place) and Elizabeth Park. It was the PERFECT day, it was cloudy, not windy and not too cold. Plus their daughters are completely adorable and smiled the WHOLE TIME. such genuine smiles for every picture. I always take a lot of the same pose because people love to blink but there was probably only 2-3 photos where someone was blinking so I had a lot to choose from!

Thank you guys! I'm working on getting your CD done tonight!

If you would like to book a session it's the perfect time of year and the trees are amazing right now. Also if you chose one of my packages take $10 off your total price for the month of October! Just email me: amandapeckphotography at gmail dot com (spamming purposes it's typed like that).

these are from my aunts wedding on bainbridge wedding a few weeks ago. the lighting was terrible but we made it work. sun isn't the best photography tool around.

Over my Head contest

| Tuesday, July 20, 2010

I Heart Faces is having another contest. i'm not sure if this really qualifies as "over my head" but i'm ok with that. i think it fits just right. i actually have some plans for photos this weekend that might better fit the theme but by then it will be too late :(.

| Wednesday, June 23, 2010

my new photography postcards came today (thanks Vistaprint!). They have my new prices and information on them. If anyone would like to "book a time" feel free to email my spankin' new email address: amandapeckphotography at gmail dot com (typed it like that for spamming purposes FYI).
Next month is filling up FAST. like in super fast. August is pretty open but September won't be open much at all since I'll be in Utah hopefully most of the month.
If you would like to request a postcard I am willing to send one to you just let me know your address (through email :)) and I'll get one out to you!
