Using the Meade ETX-90 attached to my camera was at the same time fun, and frustrating. As a lens it was the equivalent of a 1250mm focal length which of course got me all pumped. Woohooo! 1250mm! I mean how […]

Studio fashion and beauty photography

After The Absence

Several other projects—animations, feature videos, and data visualization—have kept me from using the studio for it’s main purpose: photography. Yesterday I had the chance to do something about that. Olivia, whom I’ve photographed before, and Ashley visited the studio yesterday. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Creative Children's Infants Senior and Family portraits

Expanding My Palette

Have had the fun of playing interior designer these past few days and have finally zeroed in on the perfect color palette for the new studio. Now the real fun begins – selective acquisitions. (Sometimes referred to as shopping.) Oh […]

Family portraits. Children's portraits. Studio Portaits.

PhotoSLAM Success

Truth is, about three hours before Manchester Vermont’s StreetFest started, while I was going over my final PhotoSLAM checklist, I found myself asking – whose idea was this? Who offers to set up a temporary photo studio and shoot portraits […]
