‘Renaissance Rose’

Here are my favorite shots from my most recent photo session. Lisa is a friend, first time model,  and a pleasure to photograph. It’s so rare that I get to exercise my girl brain and have fun with a session like this. Hopefully, it’s the first of many more sessions with Miss Lisa. Enjoy! Model |…

My Photography Journey

When I set out as a photographer back in 2010 I hadn’t used a camera much before. I had been spending my time in front of the camera mostly, as a model. I took photography as an elective back in high-school (2005) and I would spend class time posing for other students. My own photos…

What will I do, when my baby turns two?

As I push my front door open, after a long shift at work, I am greeted with an excited “HI!” from Jack as he charges into my arms, jabbering all the while, as he tells me about his day. Greetings such as this warm my chilly little heart after a long day of “customer service.”…

Update

When I’m not working or going to school, or doing homework, or catching up on chores. I’m doing my best to be present for Jack. Watching him learn and grow, and discover new things. And with spring upon us, and summer not far behind. Our whole family is looking forward to venturing out into the…

Jack said ” I love you mama”

Well, technically he said “N na noo mama” but I know what he meant and it definitely counts, but of course he hasn’t said it since. Anyway, here’s a whole bunch of pictures of Mr. Jack, because he is too cute for words. P.S. Jack is also 21 months old as of yesterday! Holy Hell he’s almost…

Where did this big boy come from?

Jack is closer to being a two-year-old, then he is to a one-year-old. A fact which continues to boggle my mind daily.  Where did this big boy come from? He was 30 pounds at his last baby well checkup. It seems like another lifetime ago that I was counting his breaths as his tiny 3-pound…

A little sunshine goes a long way.

❤ Jack, one year, 8 months and 25 days old. Sitting in his favorite spot in the backyard, playing with a stick/wand, and enjoying a little sunshine. The purest and simplest form of discovery play for a toddler such as himself. There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter,…

Alana

A little while back, I had the honor of photographing the daughter of our dear family friends, a young lady named Alana, whom I have known since she was just a toddler. These photo’s were taken by me, at my home, and in natural light. Alana’s mother and I did the styling for this session…

Too tired to function.

I have new found appreciation and respect for anyone who combines being a wife and mother with being an employee. I have further respect for anyone who adds college student to that mixture. My body aches and to add insult to injury my dreams at night are all work related. I am very grateful for…

Holiday Photos

Last year, about this time, maybe even a little sooner actually, we took some family photos for holiday cards. In addition to those photos I took some extremely adorable photos of Jack as “Santa Baby”, and those photos were the center theme of our holiday card. Believe me, when I say that the Santa Baby…

Beaches and Baby Bumps…

A friend of mine, who is also a model, is having a baby this December. When she asked me to take her maternity photos, naturally I jumped at the chance. We mutually decided on Asilomar Beach for our photo shoot location. We managed to get some great shot’s in before the high tide soaked me…

The day Jack wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind…and another…his mother called him WILD THING.
