New Packaging Materials

I am so excited that our new packaging materials will be arriving soon! In an ever going effort to remain current and to provide my clients with quality products, the new packaging is beautiful. Branding and designing has been an education and a test of patience but the end result will be so worth it!

Behind The Lens...

For most of us picture taking is a point and shoot exercise in getting our kids to smile or the dog to sit still while we try to put a Santa hat on his head. And for the most part that's me too when I am not working although my children may beg to differ.

When I have been in trusted however to capture a family's memories, illuminate the smile of a beautiful bride, catch the enthusiasm of a graduating Senior or the innocence and sweetness of a newborn...that is not a commitment I take lightly. So there is an intensity and focus that transports me when I am working. Not only can shooting a portrait session be a lot of fun but it can be freeing as you explore your creativity.

However, I often create shot lists or an idea bank prior to the shoot just so I can be free to concentrate on the science behind it all. There are so many considerations going through a photographer's mind while our subjects smile and pose. There are numbers and charts and graphs and joggers and cars running into our frames. Sometimes it seems near impossible to get the shot we want with the right light, a natural pose and interesting details.

The trick to it all is the interaction...as clients no longer are mere studies of subjects in light but become friends and of a sort family... that you involve and engage. It really is one of the best parts of photography for me...
