Playing With Light

My cute hubby is such a GOOD SPORT!!

So many people don't realize what a difference light makes in an image. If you schedule a photo shoot in the middle of the day and there's not enough shade, you are seeing squinted eyes, bright spots on the face that take away from the subject, and harsh shadows. This is why I try to do shoots the hour before sunset or on an overcast day. something to think about if your scheduling an outdoor event. ; )

Recent Photo Events

What a Couple of Weeks!

I was very excited to receive an Editor's Pick from my Photo Submission from Mike's Case! This was a one act play where my son Ben played the main character and went all the way to the state competition! It's a little different, but REALLY a cool capture of the mood and movement in the scene!

In the last 2 weeks I've done 3 Senior Portrait Shoots, a Mother-Daughter Event, 1 Prom Shoot, and 1 Wedding Engagement Shoot

Here are a couple images. Feel free to browse my public collections in my Photo Gallery.
