Gretchen Kindred

So.  It's been forever since I have updated the world on the goings on of Kirsten Tornes Photography.  Rapid City has been a very interesting place for me to work, full of challenges and new concepts.  Being an artist in such a small city with such a nonexistent art population is definitely something to adjust to.

Thanks to a lot of wonderful connections, I have been hired by Midwest Marketing, a company in Rapid that is very involved and highly active.  They have hired me a few times now to do commercial work for some of their clients.  The most recent project has been for a country club in town called Arrowhead.  I worked closely with Midwest Marketing's videographer, Jon, to cover different aspects of Arrowhead county club in video and still which is being used in advertisements and commercials.  The first ad was in the paper today!

In other news, I took pictures for Cassie & Dustin Kindred of their little girl Gretchen for her first birthday.  We did the shoot at Canyon Lake Park.  Here are a few of my favorites!

I'm really happy with how these pictures are turning out, especially since it had been so long since I shot portraiture and it was my first attempt with a child.  Things are definitely going well and I've been picking up my camera a lot more lately than I have been in the past few months.  Very soon I'll be taking post-wedding engagement pictures for my friend Nicole and her husband.  They never had the chance to get them done before the wedding in June.  I'm really excited for that, they are an awesome couple.
