What is SOOC?

SOOC is an acronym for Straight Out Of the Camera. Meaning the images that come directly from the camera. I like to call these raw, unedited images. Something that we do to make our images extra special is to give them some extra love…
For instance… When you order a print from us, before we send the digital file off to the color lab to be professionally printed, we enhance the raw image with color correction and run some custom actions and add a little magic, and Voila…. We can’t give away our secrets… But here’s an example of some already gorgeous clients… (Images have been re-sized to fit on the blog)

This bouquet was corrected for color,  a vintage layer added and edges burned.

The original is slightly underexposed, so I brightened, added a vintage layer and smoothed the skin.

Skin smoothed, color brightened, curves + color correction

An Amateur Photographer Parent’s Dilema [138/365] | Daily Window - […] week, I decided to show you a typical straight out of the camera (SOOC) shot next to the edited result. This is one I was happy with before doing any editing and […]

Jonathan Dear - Hey J! I love your processing – its not over the top, or too much – its perfect! It really just lets the strength of your photos shine without lots of effects / overprocessing! +1 for a fan of your work!

Billy Jean - I <3 your images!

Thank You Rachael!!

Thank you to the fablous Rachael Earl for taking some great images of me today.  I must admit I am totally not good in front of the camera… But she was able to make do with a not so great subject!  Thanks Rachael.. YOU ROCK!  She did good huh….

She even got my shootsac… My new fav lens bag!

And here’s the ever adorable Rachael Earl…

Lisette Price - You both look beautiful!!

Lisa Walsh - Those are great! Don’t you just LOVE your shootsac? I don’t know what I ever did without one!

Mike Warren - What do you mean youre not good in front of the camera! Greaet shots!

Rachael Earl - Thanks, Jamie! Had a blast with you today (even with the kids craziness!) I look forward to hanging out again!

Playing favorites…

The more I photograph the more I realize that those posed images just aren’t my favorite.  My favorite are those that just happen.  Those you capture and the the bride may not even realize that you caught that small moment.   Don’t get me wrong, I still love creating those fun moments, that I happen to suggest, but those that are spontaneous and real are my favorite!  Kind of like this one… when your BFF makes sure your lipstick is just perfect!

Meet the Rush Family

This was one of the funnest families I have worked with in awhile, this is the Rush family from all over the US, except for Grandma & Grandpa, they live here.  When I arrived their little shitzu was soo excited to see me, but he couldn’t join us for pictures cause I guess he likes to pee on feet.  Glad I missed that fun!  Here’s a few from today!

Oh- and I LOVE families that match.  I almost fit right in except for my pink pants, I must have missed the memo!

And these little guys look innocent, but after a day at the Grossology Display at the Science Center… Well you can just imagine! 😉

Thanks Guys! Have a great visit!


Welcome to the world baby Britton

Here he is… After a 9 long months, baby Britton was welcomed into the world on Mothers Day.  Mom got a little shafted, because it also happened to be her birthday.  Today he was 8 days old and cute as can be…


This is Britton’s room, check out the artwork on his walls…  It was done by Lorie La Plant, who is so amazing!

And some with big sister…

Lorie La Plant - Hey Jamie,
Hope your well!
Your work is truly amazing! I cant believe the incredible pics you took of Britton.
He’s adorable! The one in the crib is just precious.
I still have your card, and when my Grandsons visit next fall I will be sure to call you so you can do your magic with photos of them.
Thank you so much for posting my work!
