The Baxters

Family Portrait - The Baxters at Golden Historical ParkFamily Portrait - The Baxters at Golden Historical ParkSusanna, Gary and Cait Baxter In the fall of 2008, we needed senior pictures of Cait. We received dozens of brochures from photographers offering what seemed to be expensive, over-processed images that just didn't look or feel right to us. So, we decided to take Cait's portraits ourselves. It was great fun. We shared them with a few of her classmates and some of them asked if we would take their senior pictures, too. We agreed and Frame the Moment Photography was born.

We are a very sentimental family. We love shooting weddings, portraits, events, as well as the world around us that will help us to appreciate and remember the special moments in our lives. We approach taking photographs for our clients in the very same way. We like to think of Frame the Moment Photography as being in the "memory preservation" business.

"Keep me. Protect me. Share me. And I will live forever..."

This old commercial from KODAK perfectly represents how we feel about photographs. It does a great job of communicating just how important photographs can be to companies, countries, and families just like yours. If you haven't seen it before, we feel that it is worth a few minutes of your time to enjoy this really well done piece.
