Dark and rainy days during the winter months aren’t anybody’s first choice to have a family portrait created in a favorite outdoor location. It’s a big challenge to find a day when the weather cooperates at the same time everyone is available.
But the winter holidays are a time when many families are together and thinking about both fond memories of their time together and giving special gifts. Continue reading →
Fall is an ideal time for a family portrait by Mark Turner. The holiday season is just around the corner and few gifts are appreciated as much as portraits of family members.
If you’ve been thinking this is the year to have a professional family portrait created then now is the time to act. Your session can be in your home, your garden, a favorite park, or almost anywhere you can imagine.
Of all the gifts you give your children — iPods, cars, designer clothes, cell phones — all will be replaced and forgotten; but long after you are gone and your children have grandchildren of their own, family portraits will be the things they treasure the most. The portraits you create today are not just for you, they’re for your entire posterity. What legacy will you leave for them?

The Historic Fairhaven Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, September 18 is a huge one-day event throughout Bellingham’s Fairhaven district. Look for tents in front of businesses throughout the neighborhood where there will be bargains on books, clothes, portraits, pottery, shoes, and much more.
I’ll be out on the street in front of Finnegan’s Alley at 1106 Harris Avenue, where my studio is located, with an outdoor portrait studio. Stop by for a quick portrait of you, your kids, your family, or your pet. Bring your friends, bring your funny hat, dress wild or dress mild. It’ll be fun and it’ll be quick. Packages begin at just $20. Continue reading →
This is my favorite time of the year to photograph familes and seniors outdoors. The weather is still nice, the light is flattering, and we’re starting to get a little color in the maples and shrubs. Soon the rainy season will be upon us again and we’ll all want to curl up with a good book by the fireplace.
Fall is also a time when families are starting to think about Christmas and other holiday gifts, as well as Christmas cards. With a fall portrait you’re a step ahead of the game and can avoid the holiday rush.
For high school seniors, yearbook deadlines are coming up fast in October. If you haven’t had your portrait made yet, there’s still time but you shouldn’t delay any longer.
Call 360-671-6851 today to schedule your session.
There may be a handful of hermits out there who hole up away from the rest of society and shun connections with other people. The rest of us crave relationships and for most people family connections are the ones that matter the most. Those connections run deep – think about all the people doing genealogy research to learn about their ancestors. Relationships span time and distance. The return of a parent or child after an absence is a joyous occasion and cause for celebration. Continue reading →
I have a strong connection with the land which surrounds this place I call home. This is the third community in which I’ve lived for an extended period of time and in each of those I’ve developed a relationship with the environment. I grew up in the hills of West Virginia, and even though I haven’t lived there for nearly 40 years the Mountain State is still deep within my soul. Eleven years on the Nebraska prairie gave me an appreciation for wide-open skies and rolling grasslands (if you looked beyond the row crops). Continue reading →
