My Reasons
July 25, 2019

I say this all the time, and I hope it shows when we meet for the session: I love doing this. I love fussing over the details. I love making the art. And most of all, I love the reaction to the prints. But let me explain why I think photography just makes people happy! Photography changed I see things.I notice colors, textures, flowers, trees, people, shapes and light in a way most people never see them. It’s natural for us to become...

That's storytelling portraiture in a nutshell, but a two-sentence explanation makes the process seem simpler than it really is. What many don't...

The Pied Piper: Portraiture for Families with Young Kids
June 2, 2019

He teased me about it later on that week, calling me the Pied Piper because of the way the children were following me in a straight line as I explained to them what we were going to do.

Location Scouting: A Value-added Feature
May 22, 2019

As a part of theme development, the location of the session usually drives some of the other decisions you will need to make about your shoot, so it’s important to choose the right place. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before you decide on a...

The Dramatics
April 7, 2018

Back when I started purchasing all of my light modifiers, I knew that I was going to start chasing dramatic looks. This is an example of the thing—the essence—that I wanted to explore. You see, it’s easy to have someone just step in front of a camera, eyes-front, and just take the basic ID photo. That’s not something I was interested in. Dramatic looks are just as much about shadow as they are about light.  There’s a balance, it’s not...
