Summer Family Photos

  • Published August 6th, 2013 by Mary Lou Guinn

The kids are out of school NOW is the time to gather everyone for your family photo.   These can be dreary, boring and a general pain for everyone... if you have any other photographer!  

 

When I'm the photographer for your family pictures, you will be laughing, smiling & having a good time!  

 

My job is create memories, not just "take a picture".  

 

 

 

Sweet Grandma - You will be missed.

  • Published August 6th, 2013 by Mary Lou Guinn, Point of View by Lou Photography

I learned yesterday evening that my dear client and friend has lost her sweet grandmother. Shannon (bride) & Kendra(mother of the bride) asked to use this image for Grandma's memorial photo at the service.  

 

You know, life is short.  

 

I am so honored that I have had the priveledge to create this treasure for the Fitzpatrick Family.

Gig Harbor Wedding Party rides the trolley!

  • Published August 4th, 2013 by Mary Lou Guinn, Point of View by Lou Photography

Gig Harbor has a new trolley! 

Saturday Nick & Nikki had a beautiful garden wedding at a home near the historic downtown waterfront of Gig Harbor, WA.  We were only 1 block away from the trolley stop so we walked on down and hopped on! 

I think we surprised some of the passengers when we boarded!  Most were happy to join in the festivities and celebrate the new couple, but a couple of them hopped off at the next stop! 

I love that we could incorporate something FUN, Unique and New into their wedding album, not only that but the memory of all their friends together on the trolley laughing and making memories is priceless! 

 

Making memories & capturing true moments - That is what I do! 

I love being a wedding photographer!!!

Adios - Boring Photo Sessions!

  • Published July 30th, 2013 by Mary Lou Guinn, Point of View by Lou Photography

Say Adios to those B-O-R-I-N-G family pictures.  Lets create something unique, something that is all about you & YOUR family. 

 

 

When Grandma & Grandpa are in town, it is time to get the famiy together for the BIG PICTURE time.  Be sure to call me - I'm a large group specialist! - There are no groups that are too big!  I love these kind of photo sessions because it remeinds me of my family growing up.  I'm from a large family - I'm one of 9, my dad is one of 12, my mom is one of 9. Now add spouses, kids & grandkids... we are a clan!    

 

I am well versed in chaos! No need to worry if I can handle this kind of session. Seriously, I've studied with some of the masters of photography who specialize in large families, Don McGregor, Ken Whitmire & Gavin Seim... these names may not mean much to you, but those names represent weeks of photography school away from my family & studio -  studying... posing...lighting... techniques... and much much more !  

You are not going to have a boring session that is for sure!  When I am the photographer for your family, you'll find out that it is a good 60 minutes of laughter... (I am really a lot of fun!)   You'll laugh when I tell dad to give mom a hug and then I say my "magic words" that make them smile - the authentic one that makes you smile!  

I cannot share my magic words with you unless your my client - but I promise that it will make you smile too! 

I swear, if I wasn't a photographer, I think I would've been a good comedian!

Business Portrait - Calling ALL Business Men

  • Published July 18th, 2013 by Mary Lou Guinn, Point of View by Lou Photography

Dear Gentlemen, 

I suggest that you consider updating your business photo, which many call a "head shot." I don't shoot anybody here in the studio but I do create amazing business portraits!  We all change, at least a little bit, and you may not look like you did in your last photo so maybe it is time to update your photo. Now is the perfect time with this warm summer, you may have a fantastic tan!

            

We offer a quick and easy session in the studio - 30 minutes to photograph you and choose your favorite two images.  I'll do some quick retouching to make you look even more amazing than you already are, then send it to you electronicly.  You will recieve  two hi-resolution files for your printing needs and two lo-resolution files to use for any web-based marketing.   All this for only $175!

 

 

Sessions are held on Wednesday and Friday mornings.  

 

Don't hestitate, just do it. Men tend to be more decisive, so pick up the phone and call me today. 253-225-7108
