I love photographing and working with families. These two special girls — Sunny and her daughter Lucy are the best! Even Dutch, their sweet dog joined the fun! Our 90-minute photo session included family portraiture, career portraits for Sunny, and portraits of Lucy using the lawn, ivy gazebo, the forest, and shots indoors. Thank you Sunny, Lucy, and Dutch — I really enjoyed our time together!!!

Give into Temptation at Kingston's Sweet Life Cakery -- A Commercial Photography Tour

Clients ask me all of the time…”What kind of photography do you really love to do?” And, my answer is all photography! However, I do love working with clients on commercial photo shoots especially when the client has created a unique brand which showcases their own personal style.

Methia Marie Gordon Nugent, owner, chef, baker, and friend, of Sweet Life Cakery located in Kingston, Washington, creates her signature delicious wedding, birthday, and special occasion cakes, cupcakes, pies, scones, cookies, quiches, and more using fresh, wholesome, rich ingredients that are both sweet and savory, presented with a vintage cottage style that’s all hers.

When Methia asked me to work with her to photograph a new line of cakes and other baked goods for her marketing materials and her website, I first got to know and understand her style before I did the photo-shoot. So, met her for a complimentary consultation and talked about her vision. Then, we scheduled three photo sessions to meet her schedule: Portraiture and Head Shots, Commercial Kitchen, and her Sweet Life Cakery retail shop. The results of our collaboration are sweet! The photos represent the message and the brand; capturing the essence of her and her business.

Want to learn more about how I can help you and your business? Please contact me, Jolly Sienda Photography, at Tel: 240-899-5295 or email at info@jollysiendaphotography.com

Welcome and enjoy a sweet glimpse of Sweet Life Cakery.

The commercial photography sessions took place at the Sweet Life Cakery commercial kitchen and at Methia’s retail Sweet Life Cakery store located in Kingston, Washington.

Before we get start taking pictures its really critical to have a consultation to learn what company is all about and what you want accomplished in the photo images. The location, styling, creating a mood, displays, colors, theme, employees (if applicable), all this and more will be discussed before the photo shoot happens, so time is well spent on the day of the photo shoot — and you, the client, come away happy and very satisfied with your photo images.

So, what are you waiting for! Contact me today to discuss your business image and branding desires and I will help you come up with a plan resulting in gorgeous imagery that speaks your corporate story.

Wildlife Bird Photography & Landscape Photography at the Skagit Valley & Whidbey Island

Cool, pastel, winter skies…wind, clouds, and sun-breaks…golden cattails and marshland…and snow on the barren farmlands, are the perfect beacon for birds of prey! The farms in the Skagit Valley are dormant and waiting for spring; yet its a feast for birders and birds alike that survive off of the grubs, field mice, and fish in the fields and sloughs. Below are photos taken from our February 16-17 trip to Mount Vernon Skagit Valley and Whidbey Island.

Valentines Day Wedding Photography and St. Valentine

What’s not to love about Valentines Day: candy, flowers, jewelry, stuffed animals, a lovely romantic dinner for two at a restaurant, a couples romantic weekend getaway, champagne, a wedding engagement proposal, and a Valentine’s Day wedding! Did you know the history of St. Valentine is open for interpretation. The holiday, from ancient Rome, is the festival of Lupercalia. Stories about St. Valentine vary from saying a priest took many wives against the Catholic Church and indulged in gratification and orgies; or Saint Valentine defied the emperors wishes and secretly married couples; and Cupid, the Roman God of Love and hearts is the heart of emotion. Whatever stories you choose to believe, today, on February 14, around the world, people celebrate Valentines Day with the one you love. Here is romantic wedding photography from a Valentines Day wedding!

Skagit Valley Eagles and Nature Photography!

When winter arrives at the Skagit Valley, Bald and Golden Eagles, Canadian Snow Geese, Hawks, and other bird of prey feast on fish, worms, mice, and more at the barren fields that lay in waiting for spring planting. For many nature photographers seeing so many varieties of birds gather in one area is special.

It’s great to have your engagement photography session outside, in a park, incorporating flowers, the seashore, mountains, and woodlands. The beautiful, natural settings of the Pacific Northwest provide a bonus for all engaged couples.

Travel Photography - How to Capture the Local Culture of a Place - Be a Story Teller!

When I’m discovering a new place and culture, I am eager to capture, with my camera equipment, how people live and something unique about the place. I enjoy watching people and walking the streets. I look for color, every day lifestyle, movement, and dogs and cats. I take photos using different light sources and angles. To protect my knees, I wear knee-pads, so I can get down low to photograph my subject without pain. No matter where I am, I am always looking for a story to document in my photographs. I believe if you start to think about telling a story with your photographs, you will see improvement in your photos too. Here are some photos from our recent trip to Patagonia (Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and the Falkland Islands). Enjoy!

Outdoor fruit and vegetable market

When your shooting - using a natural frame, like the tree limb adds something of interest to the photograph. The Coca-cola photo is nice; however having the lady selling her vegetables and the bike adds even more interest an authenticity to the image. And, when you are photographing indoors with flash remember to turn up the ISO on your camera. The photo on the left is a graffiti image of Pedro Bonifacio Palacios, an Argentine poet; iconic Coca-Cola signage and local lifestyle, and the dome of Santera Cathedral in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Stupendous Ring of Fire Mountains in Patagonia's Chilean and Argentina Fjords

Have you ever dreamed of seeing the ‘End of the World’? Or, checking off those ‘1001 Things to See and Do Before You Die’? Our recent trip to South America and Patagonia provided us some of the world’s most dramatic scenery; unveiling places few ever see. The weather too, in this area, can change so quickly; from calm to ferocious gale force winds preventing ships from traveling around the Cape Horn or arriving safely in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands. Boy, did we luck out! In fact, the captain of our cruise ship said, “This is the calmest it has ever been, on my watch, sailing around the Cape Horn” The following images were taken on our journey. Happy Holidays!

Argentine Tango and Chilean Cueca Dancing Sways to Sexy Rhythms

During our recent trip to Patagonia with stops in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Montevideo, Uruguay, Santiago and Puerto Varis, Chile, we learned a lot about the history of the sexy and sublime Argentine tango and the coy and colorful Cueca folk dance.

Argentine tango dancers

Tango originated in the late 1800’s along the River Plate and the colorful port town of La Boca, Argentina. Slaves, brothels, and men first danced together to the pattern beats of the bandoneon. Over time, the dance was accepted by middle class and is seen today throughout this part of South America.

Photographing Falkland Island Penguins at Bluff Cove

King Penguins and Gentoo Penguins are at home at Bluff Cove, a family farm, owned by Hattie and Kevin Kilmartin, on the Falkland Islands. We really enjoyed our time photographing the penguins, birds, and the farms sheep; while taking in the raw, natural, beauty of the Falkland Island landscape, and sampling delicious home baked cookies and scones at the farm. www.falklandpenguins.com

Newborn baby portrait photography

Nieves and Chad Wright had their precious baby Amelia just a couple of weeks ago. Our photo shoot was done indoors in the comfort of a bedroom and we did a few shots outside under the pretty Autumn red maple trees. Baby Amelia is very photogenic and is so adorable! We loved seeing Nieves and Chad again — we did their wedding photography two years ago. It was wonderful to meet little Amelia and to take some of her first family photos with mom and dad. Here are some of the photos from our baby and family portrait photography photo shoot today in Bremerton, Washington.

Thank you Nieves and Chad. We loved doing your newborn baby pictures! Your friends, Jolly and Rich. Jolly Sienda Photography — helping you to create and capture beautiful family memories that will last a lifetime.
