I’ve had many brides and grooms ask, “What is a first look? Do I really need a first look?” My answer is always the same. I will explain what a first look is and how I execute it. I discuss a location first, then my second shooter gets the groom in place and I bring […]

Is a First Look right for you???

This would be pushing out of my comfort zone and reaching out past my introverted fences. I always feel so drained (thanks, weird brain) after I am around a lot of people. I had fun and am really starting to learn much about myself as an individual and as a photographer. I knew I loved […]

I have a special place for styled shoots. I love finding great places to shoot, as well. Helena is one of my past brides. She agreed to help me out with this shoot. So, I can’t take all the credit of finding this place. The idea was all hers and I loved it!!! I love […]

Oh my goodness! So, a little background for my readers. Meet Emilie. I have known her for little over  2 YEARS. She first came to me when she found out she was pregnant(with Willow). She wanted to have me photograph her maternity pictures. I was excited(who wouldn’t be? She’s absolutely gorgeous)! She not only went […]

I got to experience something that has always held a special place in my life. Racing; FOR A WHOLE WEEKEND. My father and brother and myself drove up to Watkins Glen, NY in early September(I know–it took me over 2 months to post this).  It was nice to spend time with the two of them […]

How to stay warm in 20 degree snowy weather? Um, hot tea and fancy party gloves! Keeping her warm in between shots was difficult. We made four trips back inside the house to wrap in a fuzzy blanket. But she was excited to get her pictures done so she warmed up fast. With winter much […]

Kids: Photographing in the snow

How do you establish yourself as a professional? What sets you apart? How do you make an impact? Where do you start? Round and round my head spun like a merry-go-round on a caffeine high. I had no idea- well actually that’s a lie. I did have an idea- many of them, in fact. I couldn’t get focused […]

Peyton is going to be a big brother! My cousin, Dayna wanted to do a pregnancy announcement session and with it also a reveal of the gender. Of coarse, I was all about it! So the day we decided on the park just happened to be rainy and dreary…but no problem I had umbrellas! I […]

A Pregnancy Reveal~

Sitting back, looking at these memories, I remember this day. It was 82 degrees out on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon in September. I felt compelled to take my girls to the park for our last walk before winter. The geese were having a social event. All were tumbling under the water – up-side-down. I had never […]

Families are wonderful to capture! Not only do I get to see the interaction between them, but I get to experience the love ingrained  no matter how small or how large the families are. I love photographing these portrait sessions!
