A huge part of my love of photography is the fact that it is an ever evolving art form. Even once you have a solid base of the core skills involved in taking a picture, there will always be more to learn. I am committed to developing my skill and my creativity to become a better photographer. This involves getting out to shoot whenever I can. It also involves attending as many courses as I can!

Almost two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be able to participate in a Chill Session with Rob and Lauren. . I got in this session as a matter of pure luck…I was the first to email them back after another student had to cancel, and boy am I ever happy to have spent the day with them. In an intimate group of 10, these young and very talented photographers dealt out a wealth of information. The highlight during the day was heading out to shoot newly married Michelle and BJ. It was nice to see how these two interacted with their clients to get the “candid” expressions that I love so much. It was also nice to see how they made potentially mundane backgrounds (i.e. an elementary school) look like such pieces of art.

Here are just a few that I took from the session…I spent more time watching Rob and Lauren than shooting and I found it hard to get the angles I wanted with so many paparazzi trying to shoot Michelle and BJ.

They are definately urban and not my typical style…though I would love to do a few more urban type sessions in the future. It was fun…and I hope that Rob and Lauren come up with a “Chill Session Part 2”.

Thanks again guys! It was inspiring. I learned a lot. And it really was a whole lot of fun!

This weekend Vanessa and I had the pleasure of being part of Krista and Trevor’s special day! The ceremony was beautiful and the weather was fantastic! We had so much fun with such a great group. Thank you so much for inviting us to be part of your special day! We hope you have fun at AC/DC, and that you enjoy your trip. We wish you all the best in your future together…and promise that next time we take your pictures…we won’t make you skip!!

Meet Baby Faith! This sweet little girl was born a couple weeks ago to a good friend of mine, and I was there to watch her birth! For those of you who don’t know, I am also a doula. Which means I am witness to the miracle of all miracles. Words can’t even describe how amazing it is! So, I helped to welcome Faith into the world. And I got to photograph this sweet little angel too!

Meet baby Mya! Not only was this little peanut so very sweet, she was also a dream to photograph! She slept wonderfully for us, and moved around from one position to the next without any fuss! I have said it before but I am going to at it again…I am so blessed to be invited into people’s homes to capture the new, intense love parents feel towards their little bundles.  The love of a parent is always there and is always intense…but it’s so neat to watch parents fall deeper and deeper in love with their children! I hope, years from now Mya will be able to look back at these pictures and see just how cherished she is.

Meet Hadley! Born July 22, this little girl is truly a blessing to her mom and dad! You could see and feel the love from her parents. Their pride for their sweet little baby was displayed in everything they did with her! And a perfect model Hadley was! To be invited into my clients homes is a great honor! Thank you Heather and Bob!
