Class of 2016!   I am so proud to have documented the most from your class of any in my professional photography career (29 in total).  From those I have photographed since you were babies to some new people who I just had the pleasure of meeting this past year, all of you are really… Continue reading Congratulations Class of 2016!

Why I Choose Film

One of my favorites, using the light to create a desired effect.   I have been a photographer for many years so it is a given that when I started out, I started working with film.  Then, about 10-15 years ago there was a huge shift in the professional industry and almost every single photographer I… Continue reading Why I Choose Film

Celebrate Yourself, Celebrate Your Beauty

This Valentine’s Day, I would like to help you celebrate yourself – not as you wish you were or with some crazy Mattel retouching, but exactly how you are (maybe with your hair and makeup done) – because that is perfect!   I photograph in a way that enhances your best assets and lets your… Continue reading Celebrate Yourself, Celebrate Your Beauty

This season let us help you Create Your Heirloom

This time of year is very busy for me as a photographer.  I have 15 family portrait sessions scheduled for November.  Fifteen sessions might not sound like a lot, but for the time I put in to each one, planning, executing and helping to choose just the right images and portrait products to meet expectations,… Continue reading This season let us help you Create Your Heirloom

Absolute Beauty!

I normally don’t share images right after a session because that is not really my thing.  However, since it is senior portrait season, I think it is fun to see how much a skilled photographer can highlight individual personalities.  Molly is a beautiful and intelligent girl, complex (at the same time serious and funny, shy… Continue reading Absolute Beauty!

What is the value of fine photography?

 Last month I had the pleasure of photographing this loving family again four years after I first met them.  They had moved to San Diego from Phoenix and time just got away.  But something happened this past spring that made them call me again.  There was a fire.  They had to evacuate their home.  As… Continue reading What is the value of fine photography?

Happy Father’s Day!

Today is the day my mother died – five years ago to the day.  I miss her every day.  But, I am so lucky because I still have my dad here with me.  He is a great father.  He has taught me so much, not just about photography and business, but about life and living… Continue reading Happy Father’s Day!

Congratulations Class of 2014!

Congratulations to the graduating high school seniors of 2014!  I loved photographing each of these very special young people.  Some I have been documenting since they were very small, and some I had the honor of just meeting and documenting this year.  I got a little teary eyed today as I was pulling these images… Continue reading Congratulations Class of 2014!
