Is it trickery? Is it real? In this digital age, with the tools provided and the skill of your craft, you can create just about anything your mind wants to invent.

Play time, personal projects; call it what you may.  In my opinion, I think we all need to make time for personal creativity.  This is a special time, either alone or with a friend, a time to open your mind to new ideas without deadlines and without pressure.  I’ve always been a “motor-head” or a […]

What can I say, Moms are awesome!  They make you feel secure, happy, and provide unconditional love.    Tell me what you remember first about your mother.

At 20 I was starting my life.  30, I was celebrating my family. 40, I was celebrating my accomplishments.  And, at 50, I was thinking about minimizing, however that didn’t work. I was still buying crap.  We all have […]

My great friend Wayne Coombs that has since passed once said to me “isn’t it nice to revisit art.” At first, I didn’t understand until he showed me. There’s been times when I re-visit a client’s home and I get to see their family portrait that I did years ago, and sometimes I look at […]

As we approach Valentine’s day the studio gets busy, usually photographing women in Boudoir type shoots.  They come in to be photographed for their husband, boyfriend and sometimes for themselves.  In addition to that, we also book our famous “Ladies Night Out” event, which includes five to six friends, a little wine and a ton […]

It makes a difference. It is a reflection of who you are in business; who you are as a person. It speaks for itself when you aren’t there to speak. Your head shot is important. Your head shot makes a difference. This is Charlene, she wanted to save money by going to the “other photographer” […]

It was so lovely to have Cassey and her adorable little girl, Sadie, in the studio. You can tell already that they are going to have such a special relationship. We asked Cassey to share a little bit about her experience. She and her husband, Ryan, were married in 2015 and gave birth to their beautiful […]
