Off your computer and into your life – Print those Photos! | Albany Oregon Photographer

If you walk into my house, you might notice I don’t have a ton of decorations on the wall. But my walls are far from empty. What you’ll see is many photos on the walls. I LOVE photos and love having them hang in my house.

I also love looking through photo albums, and have since I was a small child. So, you’ll find lots of albums and photo books on my shelves. My daughters all enjoy looking back through the photos from across the years.

Do you remember floppy disks? The actual floppy ones, and then the smaller, hard “floppy” disks? I do, but barely. And I certainly couldn’t tell you where to take one to get files read from it. Imagine if most of the family photos your parents had from your childhood lived on floppy discs. Now imagine, in 20 years, that most of your childrens’ photos were on CDs and DVDs. They might not be able to view them! Many computers even now are sold without CD drives, because in this world of digital, CDs are becoming obsolete.

“But Rachelle,” you say, “I have unlimited cloud storage!” That’s fantastic! And your digital photos should absolutely be backed up, but even cloud storage can fail. Things can happen, and someday down the road your kids *might* not be able to access those photos!

So, please, print those photos! Make albums! Hang large prints and canvases on the wall (the bigger the better!). Venia Photography loves being able to provide high quality prints and products for use in your home, but there are other options for printing as well! I’m happy to help you figure out the best way to keep your memories and enjoy them in your daily life!

Reister Family Photos at Waverly Park | Albany Oregon Family Photographer

This family is one who I have been blessed to take photos of for years. They came to be in my very early days and have stuck with me through the years. I’ve been part of some awesome things with them, and always feel so thankful to have that honor!

One thing about this family is that they’ve had a lot of injuries in illness in the past year (or so!). They wanted to do a photo of them all wrapped up in bubble wrap for their Christmas card. I love how they choose to make light of a situation that sometimes brings them stress!

Weekday Studio Special – No Session Fee | Albany Oregon Photographer

As you know, we now have a studio in Jefferson, Oregon. It’s just a few minutes up the road from Albany.

For a limited time, we are offering weekday (9 am – 5 pm) studio sessions with NO session fee!

After the session, I’ll take a few minutes to lightly edit your photos, and then we will view them in person together. While you wait, you can hang out at the studio or pop next door to Broads Brews for some coffee. Then, you’ll only pay for what you want to order (minimum $50 order).

These sessions will need to be booked in advance. I will collect the $50 minimum order as a retainer fee to hold your session spot (since I’ll heat the studio and drive to Jefferson for your session). THEN that $50 will be applied to your order.

For pricing on digital files and print products see www.veniaphotography.com/pricing

This limited time special does not apply to posed newborn sessions, but can be used for a more lifestyle type newborn session.

Email me at info@veniaphotography.com to book your session!

Lucas’s newborn session | Albany Oregon Newborn Photographer

I loved having Lucas in the studio! He was 10 days new, and such a champ of a sleeper! He has 2 older siblings who weren’t there for the session, so the quiet a lot of newborns need to sleep seemed to keep him awake! Once dad turned on some music, he was out like a light!

Enjoy these newborn photos! If you’re in the Albany or Jefferson area and looking for a newborn photographer, contact me today!

Family Session at the Farm | Albany Oregon Family Photographer

I loved this session with this family! They live on some amazing property between Albany and Lebanon, Oregon, and that’s where we did the photos. It was a gorgeous fall day with lovely light!albany oregon photographer, albany family photographer, lebanon family photographer, oregon family photographer, oregon photographer

Family sessions outside are always great. I love getting a good combination of posed photos as well as more “lifestyle” type photos – just capturing what is happening as it happens.albany oregon photographer, albany family photographer, lebanon family photographer, oregon family photographer, oregon photographer

I also always love to get photos of individual kids, of mom and dad each with the kids, and of mom and dad together of course!

This family raises a few cows and we had to capture a few photos of them in the background, too! I also live to get photos with family pets!

This last photo is one of my all time favorites! I asked who was the silliest in the family and quickly while the family pondered it, this little miss stuck out her tongue. It became very clear who was the silliest!
