You’ve watched Emerson grow through his first year, and today, I had the opportunity to shoot his party. There were balloons, cake, lots of food, swimming and a jumping castle. What a party!

In a few days I’ll be shooting a little cake smash with Emerson. Can’t wait!


I recently had the opportunity to work with Ian Taylor, a local Blues artist. Ian needed some images for his upcoming CD.

We had about 1/2 hour (while Ian was on a break from his ‘real life’ job), a couple speed lights and a concrete wall. Together, it made for  a great back drop for some edgy blues portraits.

Ian’s CD is out soon. For now, he’s playing many local clubs. Check him out!

It’s always nice when someone from your past comes back to see you…. With a cute baby! Kim and her daughter Avaney stopped by our dining room studio for a quick session. We got some great shots with some of my new props and hats!

And the winner is…..

Special thanks to all those who voted for my photo in the Top Knots Wedding Photo Contest.  Official winners won’t be announced until February, but the last time I checked my photo was sitting in 5th place out of over 4700 photos!!! THANK YOU!

Earlier this week one of our baby club babies Emerson, brought a friend over to see us. Everyone, meet Eve! It was a treat to shoot a baby girl, it’s been a while. We had some new props to test out….

And of course, Emerson was his easy going, smiley self. I see modelling in his future for sure!
