This beautiful, young high school senior has big plans ahead of her for sure! This is Savannah. During her shoot I learned she will be studying pre-med in college, which she will hopefully be attending Harvard next year. She could … Continue reading →
I’m in love with Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski. No, really I am. And it’s ok because my husband is totally aware of it and not at all jealous. Ok, maybe he is just a little bit….he’ll get over it. … Continue reading →
I’ve got a few session edits going on at the moment, but I have to say I’m really enjoying the kiddo ones the best. It’s been a pretty hectic last few weeks in the AZ heat. Our temp hit 117 … Continue reading →
I recently shot these senior portraits for Tori in the streets of downtown Glendale and at an amazing welding yard filled with tons of scrap metal. Tori was such an incredible model. She knew exactly what to do, at the … Continue reading →
My husband is a trained chef and we absolutely LOVE cooking together. It’s like…our “thing”. So this father’s day we decided to bake cupcakes together with the inspirations from a really cool cupcake book we recently purchased. What dad doesn’t … Continue reading →
Photographers usually look at each other’s work and comprehend how much time and work goes into editing. Clients rarely see the RAW images before the magic happens. Here’s just a glimpse of what photos look like before and after. Of the many details I edit in all of my images details include: blemish touch-ups, skin smoothing, correcting exposure, hue/saturation changes, brightening smiles (and removing braces), removing distracting details (like the electrical boxes in the photo of the kids, and the sidewalk crack)
Everything must start somewhere! I’ve been putting off starting a blog for months. It’s not like I have all the time in the world to tend to it. Blogs take a lot of work! There’s the updating, the posting, the grooming, the cuddling…. I have 4 kids and a husband I need to share my time with too, you selfish blog. But, nonetheless it was time to give in and start following the mainstream and get this thing going. Of course I will try to post my bestest photos from time-to-time and make a comment here and there. I’m trying to get my name out there and join in the ranks of hundreds of photographers (that’s just in our valley). There are so many very talented artists in the world, and although I don’t claim myself to be one of them, I strive to someday be. My objective is to make a living doing what I love. And as cliche as it sounds, it really is my dream. I just want to create stunning images that people will love. I’m not into whatever is trendy, or dying my hair purple to prove I’m an artist (I did that in high school). I want someone, anyone, to look at just one photo and say “wow…that’s awesome”. If I gain recognition and respect, and maybe even some fat cabbage…then my objective has been met!
