Frances Gaul Photography

Behind the scenes of a test shoot:
This is Frances Gaul of Frances Gaul Photography Based out of Mercer Island, serving the Seattle area, specializing in Mitzvahs, High School Seniors and Families. Hildebrand Photography and Frances Gaul Photography work together quite often. We are a great match. She’s creative, talented, professional, upbeat and dedicated. We have worked countless events together that we now work together like clockwork swapping leadership roles, creative ideas and camera gear with ease. These photos are perfect examples of how far Frances will go to get the shot. This shoot was something we put together just to test out new gear and new lighting ideas. It’s always a challenge for photographers to shoot in high, direct sunlight but with out off-camera lighting and perfect placement of subjects we rocked it.

Family Photo Redmond Wardrobe Tips






d81_7111Here’s a recent family photo session we did for the Martinez family. This is a perfect example of what to wear. They (Kim) chose grey and crimson (go WSU!) then dark jeans. These colors are easy to find in stores especially this time of year, they look good with the fall colored background and her family is comfortable wearing them. Color keying is a term used in photography. It means matching the color of your background to the client’s outfit. This is done so that your eye is drawn to the subjects face and not distracted by their clothing colors. It’s something to consider when choosing outfits for your family to wear for family photos. Try to avoid white clothes as white is the first thing your eye is drawn to in any photo as it is the brightest “color” (didn’t we learn in art class that white isn’t a color? I’m not sure what it’s called so I’ll put it in quotes). Grey is a nice alternative to white. It’s neutral and subdued. Any color with grey and denim or khaki is a good choice.
Avoid patterned clothing. One outfit change is an option but not necessary. You could layer then take sweaters off to show shirts underneath for a different look without having to go find some place to change clothes.
If you bring a pet please bring someone to hand them off to for the non-pet photos.
We look forward to capturing amazing images of your family! We have a few dates still available but not many. Email me at dawn@hildebrandphoto.com or call 206.790.8995 (email is best) to book a session now!

Abri and Don’s wedding

abri_churchHere’s a quick view of some of my favorite photos from Abri and Don’s wedding at their church, Pacific Christian Center Church. I’ll post a full blog later but couldn’t wait to show at least a few photos from their big day. Frances and I had so much fun that day/night. Abri and Don’s family and friends are the nicest, most supportive and fun people to be around which makes complete sense because that’s how they are too. They’re a luck couple. Congratulations you two!
