Inspired by Life: Library Shoot

I boycotted T.V. in 2008 for good… and have never missed it.  I am so much more productive when its not even an option for distraction in my house.  As such, I read A LOT.  I often meekly approach Ben with puppy eyes asking if its okay for me to submit the latest amazon cart […]

Inspired by Life Episode #2

What is Inspired by Life?   What I learned from this shoot: Oh heavens.  I had no idea how vocal and interactive I was as a photographer (especially with children) until I lost that privilege and had to be quiet. There were times I looked like an absolute fool because I was mouthing songs and […]

Cereal Shoot

Not to belabor this shoot, but I really wanted to post some of my favorite’s from the cereal “Inspired by Life” session. Clearly, we had some fun, as was evidenced by the ‘crunch’ we felt under our feet with each step by the end! Oh yes… and for the record, I totally reached my goal. […]

Mentor Love

I love photography. I also love teaching. I really really love combining both!  Shooting and teaching at the same time! Mentor sessions are great for targeting personal questions and needs which we can address in the office setting, or in the field.  I’m trying to stress even more the importance of “field experience” for private […]

The other side

Its funny, when I blogged these lovely images, I commented to Ben, “It totally doesn’t look like my usual work, does it?”  Not sure if anyone else had the same thought.  The difference to me was quickly apparent.  The images seemed much more serious, contemplative, emotional, and quiet.    Though I LOVE those images, I couldn’t […]

Sometimes you get lucky, if you're willing to be brave

Earlier this week I saw storm clouds and had a family session scheduled. I called and consulted with the family and due to black cloud concern, we postponed until later in the week. It never did rain on Monday evening, but sure looked threatening. I sometimes forget that moments that seem less than ideal, sometimes […]
