"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you'll land among the stars." -Les Brown
I love this quote -- I might have to make some photo art using it!
I have a lot of shoots to show you but I've been so busy I just haven't had the time to post them, plus I'm working on something new which I'll introduce to you shortly :)
The whole family!:
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a session. I take a limited amount of sessions and I shoot on Tuesday, Thursdays and sometimes Sundays. I also offer Gift Certificates which are a great Holiday gift idea!
This little guy was only two weeks old when I photographed him.
I LOVE baby feet!!:
The 2nd Annual Benton County Sheriff’s Office Chili Cook Off is going to be held this Sunday, the 13th at the Benton County Fairgrounds, 12- 4:00.
Admission is $5.00 per person (kids 6 and under are free) It’s going to be a fun time – the REACH helicopter will land, there will be fire engines, and the K9 dogs, the Army National Guard will have some vehicles there – and of course there will be LOT’s of chili (included in the cost of admission) – hot dogs, soda, and ice cream will also be available for purchase – all proceeds from food, admission, and raffles will go to Strengthening Rural Families.
My friend Libby McCormick (she is an excellent massage therapist if you are looking for one!) is on the committee and asked if I wanted to participate -- I donated a portrait session so if you are interested in one this would be a good place to go bid for it! It's family friendly and lots of fun! I hope to see you there!!
We got some great images, below are some of my favorites:
Ambir loved these pear trees!:
Right after the first kiss!:
I was so glad that Bryce was willing to ride the pink bike!:

A special thanks to Amanda Long for being my second shooter for the day.

Stay tuned for their "Day After" session...
I consider myself a "natural light photographer" but recently I've decided that I would like to learn more about my flash and various lighting options. I attended a great workshop by Neil van Niekerk all about lighting. It was the best workshop I've gone to in years (and I've been to lots!). We played around with flash, studio lighting, and video lights. Here are some of the images I captured:

Side Note: My summer has been insanely busy -- which is great -- but it also means that I am behind on blog posts. More to come so keep checking back!
