I look forward to reading your comments and/or speaking with you about an upcoming session. I strive to create photographs that are unique, high quality and representative of your personality.

Play Date

Our fingers and our toes, our ears and our nose...high-ho, the derry-o…it was freezing cold…
I spent yesterday evening with two fantastic people who were willing to brave ridiculously cold temperatures to play in our local park, all in the spirit of catching the spark that they share.  The light was ideal; hazy, overcast and even a bit snowy.  My goal was to capture some shots that were more traditional (i.e. something that they could frame or send to grandma) and some that were more artistic (i.e. something that they could frame but wouldn’t necessarily be a “face shot”).  I am going to take some extra time editing for my own practice and because I want this couple to have pictures as beautiful as they are.

A helpful hint:  When you are taking photos outside in the winter, the photographer should momentarily stop breathing so that the vapor from their breath doesn't create a fog in front of the lens.  A few of my pictures have "smoke" for this very reason...lesson learned!

My husband calls this my "Edward and Bella" shot.  (I find it hilarious that he made this comment.)
