Pinups in Panama City

October 3, 2013

One of my favorite genres of photography is pinup and boudoir. However, I don't get to share them very often because these shoots are private and normally for that someone special's eyes only. I am so happy when I have a client that allows me to share some of their pictures. This shoot's theme was vintage and nautical. She and her husband met in sailor school (ok that's not the technical name for it- but you get the idea), and he works out at sea for weeks and months at a time. This was for their 5th anniversary, that happened to coincide with one of his return visits.

Family, family, family

July 29, 2013

I have been having so much fun shooting families in the month of July. This will be the first upload, the Rowland family, and one of my favorites yet.

Father's Day Special Gift

July 10, 2013

I recently did a quick shoot for this beautiful new mother, Heather. Her little family went from 5 to 6 when her and her husband welcomed their first human child (the other three are their fur babies, three rescue dogs) into their lives.

Families at the beach

June 20, 2013

There can be a lot of stigma surrounding 'traditional beach portraits.' I certainly played into this for many years. However, my perspective has changed. Last night I was catching up with an old friend, talking about my jump off the corporate ladder, and why I've decided to pursue photography full time. Somehow or another the topic of family beach photos came up, and I had a bit of a soapbox moment.

Boudoir and Pinup

June 14, 2013

Boudoir shoots are becoming wildly popular, and I am very excited for a few upcoming shoots I have on the books, and the shoots I've already done this year. I spent some time this week scouting out a couple locations. One will be for a traditional pinup shoot, for a client with a vintage apron. I'm so happy with the location I've booked, and I'm bursting to tell (but I won't!). I'm very excited to put some of my editing skills to the test with this one, thanks to a recent workshop I took on the style.

Perks of hiring a professional

May 30, 2013

Now that everyone has a digital camera, and more often a digital SLR, some would argue that professional photography is not the wisest career choice. I disagree (obviously!). There are definitely arguments to be made for technique, a photographer's 'eye,' etc., but this blog post is coming to you from a technical perspective.

New Life

April 2, 2013

Recently my dear friends had their first baby. It's been several years since I've photographed an infant, and for most of that time it was something I avoided. Why? Probably because of the time I spent in that generic studio shooting newborns day in and day out, in the same positions, with the same (NOT CUTE) props. Perhaps I took for granted what I was doing, but the recent arrival of Baby V has reminded me how special it is, and even more has reminded me why I like taking pictures.

Social imagery FTW

March 27, 2013

Yesterday was overwhelming in the world of social media (regardless of your personal political preferences), and what it means for the direction of communication and its relevance to how policy is made, and how our country is led. If you don't know what this symbol means you are literally living under a rock. How's it feel down there?

Working refections

March 18, 2013

Working for myself has been one of the most satisfying experiences I've had. I will preface that statement by saying that it took me a long time to get to that point, and it still isn't easy- certainly not easier than working for a company. If you've ever had to file your own taxes and take the money out of your accounts AFTER you've deposited it, you will understand. I could easily get side tracked into a frenzied post about the political and financial climate in our country... but I digress.

Head shots

March 7, 2013

Updating your headshot can be dreadful, I know. I'm in need of an update right now, and it's miserable. I don't like the way I look, I can never find the right angle, and quite frankly I don't want my picture to be up for people to see. As a photographer, I'd much rather someone visiting my website to look at my work, not my face.

Skills and inspiration

February 13, 2013

Lately I've been trying to find some inspiration and improve my skill sets both behind the lens and in post production… and it hasn't been as easy as I imagined.

Technology and all that jazz..

January 7, 2013

Our phones are pretty incredible devices. I cannot remember the last time I went even 24 hours without using my cell phone for something other than making calls. I would even venture to say that out of everything that I do on my phone, making calls is what I do the least with the device.
