My client work from 2017

 

2017 was a year where I focused on my family’s health needs so I was really surprised to see how much work I had actually created for clients. I don’t feel like I ‘worked’ one day the whole year. It feels like the older my kids get, the more they need support from me and the more I really appreciate and enjoy my career and the people I get to work with. Maybe it’s supposed to be that way…

I See Things Differently

The anatomy of a final select
All of my published images have been color corrected and retouched ie: “created in my mind’s eye,” and are not straight out of the camera.

[photography] is an awesome location

I have been racking my brain for some awesome new locations for my holiday “Short But Sweet” sessions. I usually choose a spot and settle in for a couple of hours in the morning and evening on two different days as you come with your family for your 20 min of fame. These sessions cost $75 and include a 5×7 digital file of your select or a $25 credit toward your purchase if you do prints or my custom…
