Something Fun

A while ago I was contacted by BetterPhoto about using some of my images in my BetterPhoto gallery for a book on photographing children. Betterphoto is such a great place for amateurs AND pros and there are a lot of talented people there. It really is a fun place, so if you have any interest in photography at all (either taking photos or just viewing them!), you should check the place out.

Well, a week ago I received news that two of my images (they submitted three of them to the editors for the book) were in the book. On October 31st, I received my own copy and sure enough, there they were. The parents of these two kiddos will be receiving a book from me too.

Here are the two photos:

Anyway, it was a lot of fun seeing two of my photos alongside some other well known photographer’s beautiful photographs. The book is geared towards parents and those who are trying to learn how to take better photos of their kids.

The book is called “The BetterPhoto Guide to Photographing Children” and is available through BetterPhoto and Amazon (and I’m sure a few other places too).  

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

With the Month of October being recognized as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, The Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation holds its Annual Fund Drive for six weeks starting in mid-September and ending in October.
President Ronald Reagan enacted Proclamation 5890 in October of 1988 to recognize that each year, approximately a million pregnancies in the United States alone end in miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of a newborn child. Reagan stated, “A national observance offers us the opportunity to increase our understanding of the great tragedy involved in the deaths of unborn or newborn babies. It also enables us to consider how, as individuals and communities, we can meet the needs of bereaved parents and family members… ” To read the full Proclamation signed by Reagan, CLICK HERE.

I will be out of town this weekend~ I’ll be back on Monday.  I still have one headshot session available and one Portrait Session available, but that is IT for this season! Thank you ALL for such a GREAT YEAR!!

Fall Schedule

The time has come for Fall Portraits! Sessions are now being scheduled for late September, October and November.

A few dates to remember:

Seniors: Most schools are requiring your photos before Nov. 1st and  many by early October. Please contact me to schedule your sessions NOW!

Portrait & Headshot Clients: November 15-16th will be the LAST weekend for sessions for the year.

All print orders must be completed by December 5th in order to receive them before the holidays.

As we get closer to October, I may open up a few late afternoons for sessions. This will be on a very limited basis and will be announced as we get closer. Please schedule your fall sessions for your preferred date.

Headshots

E. Tyler Photography is looking to expand the Headshots portfolio (soon to be on the Theatre section of the website). For a limited time, Headshots will be available at a reduced price.

Specializing in natural light, on-location headshot sessions, E. Tyler Photography shows not only what you look like, but who you are. You only get one chance to make an impression, to grab an interest, make sure you have the best headshot out there that represents who you are.

For more information, you can view the Headshot info PDF- http://www.etylerphotography.com/headshots.pdf

To schedule your headshot session, please contact E. Tyler Photography at etyler@etylerphotography.com or 970.214.5947

Thanks so much!

Just some notes

School is (almost!) out and June is just a couple days away! Right now, I am scheduling sessions for the end of JULY. Since my session times are limited, sessions have been booking very fast this season! Please schedule your session as much in advance as possible!

I will be out of town this weekend, I will get back to everyone who contacts me as soon as possible afterwards.

On another note- I am going to be sending out a model search for children ages 4-7 in the next couple of months. This is for a project I am working on and I am looking for a very diverse group of kiddos. Right now I am specifically looking for a kiddo in this age group who uses a wheelchair. If you know of anyone who would be interested, please point them to the blog or have them contact me for more info. More details to come soon on the project and the model search soon.

As always, I am here to answer any questions or schedule a session for you! You can contact me at etyler@etylerphotography.com or 970.214.5947. Thank you!

Just a quick note

My baby brother is getting married this weekend! I will be super busy with all the wedding preparations and activities starting tomorrow. I should be back to the regularly scheduled program on Monday. If you contact me during this time, please know I will get back to you ASAP, but probably not until Monday.

Thank you! It looks to be a BEAUTIFUL weekend- enjoy!

Events to check out this month

I promise this weekend I will have some posts with actual photos! But I didn’t want any of you to miss out on some GREAT happenings this month.

FOSSIL RIDGE HIGH SCHOOL is putting on the musical “Beauty & the Beast” on April 24-26. It promises to be a GREAT show and I am really looking forward to photographing it. Photo CDs will be available for this show.

FORT COLLINS HIGH SCHOOL is having the annual “Vaudeville” on May 1-3. This is always a fun event and you get to see a wide variety of students and their talents. Photo CDs will also be available for this show.

PARAGON THEATRE’s next show is “Sight Unseen” and opens May 3rd. I am looking forward to capturing this play and seeing some familiar faces among the cast.

If you have a KRUSE ELEMENTARY 3rd & 4th grader, you’ll want to see their concert on April 24th. The Chime Choir is also performing. It will be a fun event. Come support the students who have worked so hard this year!

Also happening on May 3rd is the 20th Annual MS Walk here in Fort Collins. There are so many ways you can help out… donate to a walker (my link is on the left side of this page), volunteer at the walk, or just show up and cheer the walkers on. Boulder, Colorado Springs & Fort Collins is having a little competition to see who can raise $125,000 first.  I know we can all meet that $125,000 goal! :)

Have a wonderful weekend! Check back soon for some fun sneek peeks!
