Hello and welcome to the official Solheim Photography blog.
I’m so glad you stopped by. Let me introduce myself. My name is Linda De Los Reyes and I have been a photographer for most of my life. I started this studio less than two years ago. A relative newcomer to the business of photography but a veteran in the art. This is my dream career after a lifetime in the hi-tech industry. It’s one that is not only fun but personally fulfilling. In this career of mine, I have come to understand what an honor it is to be invited into my clients’ lives for a short time. To understand their vision, their feelings about their family and what they’d like to capture.
I love surrounding myself with beautiful images – and there is nothing more beautiful than images of my own family. I have decorated my own home with photos of my daughters and husband, of our travels and of many things that mean so much to us. But I am a practical sort. Displaying images must make sense to me. How do you sort, organize and place images so that they stand on their own while being part of a whole? This is what I do with my clients…and I get a real kick out of it. It’s not enough to choose the favorite images. I help my clients by guiding them through the next step – designing a wall display that showcases the individual photos while creating a cohesive, eye-catching whole. A meaningful focal point for the home.
I am a wife and a mother. My family is my daily inspiration. Particularly my girls. Twin 5-year-olds I affectionately and virtually refer to as Storyteller and Songwriter. To know my girls is to know how very different…and similar…they are.
She is my older twin by oh, 2 minutes. I don’t mention this fact around them very often. At 5 years old, each twin uses anything she can to her advantage over her sister and being older is one of them.
The younger and bolder (generally speaking) of the two. This is another difference I don’t point out to either twin much at all either since both can exhibit boldness in rather different situations.
Meet my husband, Truls.
Yes, he truly is my best friend, my greatest supporter, my favorite fan. He is also an incredible photographer. Think he built his own darkroom when he was a kid and had a camera in hand since he was seven. I call him my encyclopedia of all things photography. I should also mention that he is a die hard Canon-ite. Our styles and interests in photography are somewhat different. If he had his druthers, he’d be a photographer for National Geographic or a sports photographer covering windsurfing, skiing, sailing or…or…or… I think you get the idea. All in all, he’s a pretty wonderful guy.
So, that’s enough about me. What about you? Don’t hesitate to contact me at LindaD@SolheimPhotography.com to set up a session or obtain more information about my work. I’d love to meet you and your family, to understand your vision and capture those precious moments that will make your home a beautiful retreat filled with loving images of your family.
