Beautiful Fifty

I happened to photograph Lauryn five years ago on her 45th birthday – one of the images from that session has always been a favorite of mine. A couple of days ago I had the joy of photographing Lauryn again, […]


Rules for the Practice of Photography

Ten Commandments for Successful Photographers

Over the holidays I joked with a colleague, a devout photographer himself, that on the eighth day god created photography and that surely somwhere there was a buried glass negative or a piece of Daguerrotype tin that held the Ten Commandments […]

Why I’m Not Getting a Divorce in 2014

It seems everywhere I look today —HuffPost, Facebook, Twitter—people are resolving to dump/divorce/ditch their smartphones in 2014. I’m not. And here’s why in one sentence: It’s incredibly useful. As a small business owner I love the convenience of having all […]


Creative patterns made with Christmas tree lights

A Little Fun with Christmas Tree Lights

Before you completely take down that Christmas tree have some fun with it first! Using a long exposure and some camera movement you can create these vibrant abstract patterns. Kids love doing this! There’s no end to the designs you […]

A Low-Key Day

Am starting to get friendly with all of the light in the new studio and it’s beginning to feel like home. Andrew came in for a couple of hours yesterday and we moved the light around overpowering all the daylight […]


Photographing Men. Strong and Sexy.

Paul – The Y Factor

After only shooting lovely girls and women the first weeks in the studio, I enjoyed a little testosterone in the light. I have photographed Paul a few times in the past few years and this time I realized it was […]

Let’s Celebrate the New Studio!

To celebrate the opening of my newly relocated photography and media studio I am giving away some pretty choice portrait packages. Winners will be randomly drawn on December 7, 2013! Thank you to everyone who has been a part of […]


Captivating Children Photography

Both of the Helens

Both of these images, though wildly different in feel and emotion, express Helen perfectly, though she does tend to lean slightly more toward the first image. That’s the beauty of photography – recording the truth of an instant.  


Capturing the authentic moments in Creative Tween and Teen Portraiture

Be TWEENs

Sometimes it can be difficult for a tween to relax in front of the camera. The span of ten-to-twelve years old can be an almost androgynously awkward time for girls. It’s the time that bridges cute into beautiful. And it’s […]

Firing Off the First Frames

I’ve been chomping at the bit to actually work in the new space instead of just painting, hanging and arranging. Yesterday Tikko, my assisting intern, and I found an hour in the new studio to try some test approaches with […]


New Portrait Comercial Photography Studio

Sort of Wish I’d Upgraded to iPhone 5

I know with an iPhone 5 you can create killer panoramic shots as easily as shooting video. I however am still hanging onto my iPone 4s. Why? Because it fits into a really great wallet that I love and am […]


The wonderfully high ceilings required endless up and down on the ladders but the studio is going to be fabulous.

The Ups and Downs of New Spaces

It was a lot of ups and downs – stairs, ladders and step stools to get the new space spackled, sanded, and painted in just a few days. I owe an extra dose of gratitude to my husband for volunteering […]


So much great light in the studio I can grow plants - hopefully.

First World Problems are Not Problems

At  almost a speed of light pace, the new studio space is coming together. I can’t believe I’ve been professionally home-less for only six months. It feels longer. Excruciatingly so! The  new furniture and accessories have begun to arrive and […]
