The Family Miller!

In the ongoing quest of Otis & James Photography to photograph all facets of the Miller Family, yesterdy we worked with the Bismark version the this expansive clan!

In keeping with our past Miller experiences, this group couldn’t have been any easier to work with (unlike that unruly Steve…will he ever be tamed?) The ‘Bismark Miller’ was awesome – we put puzzles together, played a good game of tickle monster, read some old school stories, and then went to the park. Does it get any better than that??!! Indeed, fun was had by all in the quest for some sweet snaps – and I’m here to say the snaps were indeed sweet.

We thank them one and all for making the trip to see us, and we hope to see you again soon – but for now, take a look at these samples from the day, and – Enjoy!

This morning, we in Otis & James Land (the only inhabitants of which are Otis &James – it’s a pretty exclusive land) were reunited with our old friend Julie for the occasion of her Senior Portraits! She and her merry band of family (Mom, Sis, and Bro) came down to HQ and let the par-tay begin!

The fact that we had already spent some quality time with Julie before (altough I’m not sure that any time spent in our super-crappy old Honda could be considered in any form to be quality), as this made the shoot today all the easier. We all laughed in gigglish and cute ways, and Julie turned to magic setting to high, and the results were suuuuuper-faaaaaaaaantastic!

Thank you to Julie for her time with us, and to everybody else out there – Enjoy!

Jared. Just Jared

I don’t know of any other way to introduce this post other than to say…Ladies and Gentlemen…I want you to join me in giving a big Minot North Dakota welcome to the legendary, mystifying, side-splitting, pondering, friend to flora and fauna alike…none other than the man, the myth, the legend of soul himself…the Magic City Mad Man… the purveyor of percolated coffee and the man of perpetual motion…Jared.

Give it up, and – Enjoy!

Yesterday evening, we at Otis & James HQ were joined by the oh-so-lovely Kensie for the occasion of her Senior Portraits! We had a great time together, and Kensie was just an absolute joy to work with as we began our time in the studio, and then hit the pavement downtown in search of the perfect shot.

Kensie is going to come back later to finish up the rest of her shoot, but for now why don’t you sit back and enjoy some snaps from our adventures yesterday – Enjoy!

William & Michelle…(a little late)

Otis & James come to you at this late our with our collective tail between our legs. It seems that in the midst of all the commotion and whatnot around the studio, our friends William & Michelle were left off of the blog!!

We want everyone to experience the blog, and when something like this happens we feel awful!! So instead of just offering our thanks to this beautiful couple for choosing us, we instead say thank you and we’re sorry! Even though every sentence seems to end with an exclamation point, it’s true. So we humbly present these photographs as a sort of an olive branch, and also to showcase the full on beauti-osity of this super-duper fun couple – Enjoy!

It’s Nick Again!

Bright and early, Nick rolled on into our studio for the conclusion of his shoot (you can find his previous post here.) He braved the cold, and also a quick run up about 200 stairs (notice how Jamie and I were all like “why don’t you go up there and see if the gate it open”) in order to make his time with us suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper sweet.

Well, super sweet it was, and I’m going to show the proof – Enjoy!

We concluded our totally awesome Super Senior day yesterday with a visit from none other than the magnificent Caitlin! I don’t quite know what to say about our time together other than she truly was Caitlin the magnificent, as she came in and conquered the land of Otis & James with her radiance and enthusiasm (as well as mystified us with her incredible non-glare lenses)!

She, along with her trusty assistant (Mom) were an absolute joy to work with, and we thank them for spending this lovely evening with us. As they say (they being me), off with these words and on with the snaps – Enjoy!

Jessie & Katie!

Yesterday afternoon we had a very special visit from Jessie, and her faithful canine friend, Katie! We couldn’t have asked for two cuter subjects to work with. Even though Katie didn’t much care for standing on the paper backdrop, she made the most of it and the outcome looked great!

We thank these two for making the time for us, and now on with the pics – Enjoy!

Emily…One More Time!

Our glorious Monday came to a sweet conclusion with another visit from an old friend of Otis & James – Emily! Take a look at her previous post here, or you can just take a look at the rest of her photo-graphic session right below these words.

Either way, you’re in for a visual treat, as Emily rocked it up on both occasions! We thank her for making this Monday absolutely perfect, and we offer these photographs as a treat for one and all – Enjoy!
