Hello, I’m Colleen Easley; the gal behind the lens at Colleen Easley Photography. I live in Olympia, Washington with my husband, Dale, my grandson, Zach, two kitties, PD and Foxy, and a pet rabbit named BunBun.
My Time in Alaska Although I’ve been taking photos for over 45 years; my true passion for photography was rekindled in recent years when I started doing seasonal tour guiding in Alaska. Seventeen summers in Alaska gave me the opportunity to capture many beautiful images of that state’s majestic landscapes and wildlife with various film and digital cameras. I bought my first Nikon DSLR in late 2009. Since I retired after the 2010 season, I only had the chance to use it for one season in Alaska, but I look back on all my years in Alaska with great appreciation for all that I learned about the flora and fauna of Alaska.
The Beauty Around Us Now that I’m retired I’m looking forward to doing some traveling around this beautiful country of ours. As I travel I’ll be making images to share on my web site. Please take time to relax and browse through my galleries. All my images are for sale, so if you find something you like, just click the thumbnail to expand it and you'll see the ADD TO CART button at the bottom right side of the page. You can buy traditional sized prints, design greeting cards, or have my photos printed on various items of merchandise – all from within the shopping cart program on my site.
Around My Community I'm retired so I don’t have plans to make photography a full time profession, but it has become more than just a hobby. I am enjoying taking on a limited number of special projects such as newborn baby sessions, children (including those with special needs), pets, senior portraits, corporate portraits, local events, and small weddings. I am particularly blessed when I’m able to give back to my community by helping families who find it difficult to afford a traditional photographer.If budget constraints are preventing you from getting profession portraits taken, please contact me. I’ll be happy to help you find a workable solution.
