Today’s post we’re featuring one of our favorite portrait photographers out there, Enchanted Images. The awesome photographers behind this great portrait photography business is James and Stephani Hays. They are from Roseville, California, near Sacramento if I’m not mistaken.
I first became fans of theirs on photoSIG when James would post images for critique. His work made me an instant fan and I’ve been one ever since. He’s an inspiration of mine and his work just gets better and better and more classy all of the time.
Enchanted images specializes in seniors and family portraits. A great combination for these guys as they know how to do it perfectly with the right artistic touches. They are so inspiring to me I think because they never cease to produce images that look beautiful and cutting edge, fashion forward and timeless, artistic and perfectly flattering for each individual subject. I just love these guys!!!
If you haven’t ever checked them out or it’s been a while, stop what you’re doing and go there now! It will be well worth your time.
Check out their site or their blog. How about their facebook page? If that’s not enough, you can even check out their photoSIG page! If you talk to them, let them know you found them on our site!

Photographers, one question: How often do you and your immediate family get your portraits taken? Probably like most, not that often. I photograph families every single day of the week and I rarely get our family photos taken.
A while back, I ran across a site called Roadside Families and it is still going strong. The premise behind this amazing site is photographers photograph others and their families but rarely find the time or opportunity to photograph their own families. So, you get your family photographed by another photographer and then you do the favor for someone else by doing the same exact thing.
Roadside Families is the creation of forward thinking photographers, John Michael and Dalisa Cooper of AltF.coM. They have a long history of bringing creativity and ingenuity to portrait photography and the photographic community.
So, if you are a photographer and want family portraits and want to help other photographers make memories of their families, then Roadside Families is for you and you should get involved. Just go to the Join In Page to find out how to join and what to do next.
