Nervous about your Photo Session?

Hooray!! Our family shoot with the fabulous Adrienne Maples is booked!! Now what…….. If you are anything like me, there is a level of uncertainty, maybe even a little anxiety leading up to your session. Adrienne is my boss and my friend, yet I still put a lot of pressure on myself that we won’t get that one perfect shot. You know, the one where everyone is genuinely happy. The one take between the little moments of chaos.

Birthday Baby

Precious little Savannah was born in March almost a year to the date of my own sweet daughter. And I have been blessed with capturing this family since the birth of their first child, Jameson.  Of course he has now grown into an adorable little boy who is falling quite nicely into the role of a protective big brother.  (Here are a few images from their snow shoot .) I wanted to share some fun images from our celebratory shoot for little Saavy’s first birthday.   She […]

Making new friends on a Saturday

  As we gain experience, the desire to teach and share ideas grows with every season. So when Adrienne decided to begin teaching workshops, it seemed like an obvious next step — new friends sharing ideas and vision. Saturday’s workshop was a validation for us that the workshop is indeed a fabulous way to gain valuable experience and, of course, new friends. Workshops will continue throughout the season. For now, however, take a look at some scenes from Saturday’s class! […]

Birth Day- Elsie is born

I got word from Ashley that she would be induced Friday morning… her blood pressure had been elevated so the doctor decided that February 8th would be Elsie’s birthday.  The moment I got the news I was excited… happy to be a part of this day in their lives… Nervous for her.. Anxious for her.. Excited to meet this baby & watch her open her eyes and take her first breaths.  It’s an amazing experience. Never did I think I would involve myself with documenting births.  […]

Camera How?! {March Class}

Our January workshop was a huge success & we learned a lot.  Most importantly, we learned that our one-on-one attention clearly helped our attendees ‘get it!’ And everyone left insired.   We’re offering another Camera How ?! Basics for Moms class on March 2nd.  So if you are waiting on an opportunity to learn with Adrienne, this is it!  Our Camera How?! workshops are designed to teach you how to master the basics & find the light.  We’ll help guide you into thinking a little differently about composition & what can make or break […]

Anyone Can Do It, Part 2

  Before the holiday, I started a new series (Anyone Can Do It). In the first post, I talked about the importance of knowing your competition. Often, we believe our competition to be a specific set of pro and semi-pro photographers in our price range and style. But, they’re not. Our competition is all around us, and they’re often armed with more advanced equipment than we have in our own bag! In this post, I’m going to step back and talk about […]

Anyone Can Do It, Pt. 1

  This will be the first of a five part series I am dedicating to young professionals and amateur photographers. Enjoy!  We love to make plans. As children, we plan our future with the eclectic and colorful strokes of a fresh imagination. Imaginations are one of our favorite childhood toys. As we age, however, the necessity of the plan  becomes painfully un-fun and realistic. Tangible necessities like food and transportation wash away the masterpiece we once created … only to be replaced with a simple, […]
