Photographing the Photographer

I’ve had some lessons in vulnerability lately. As a Mama, a Wife, a Friend and a Professional Portrait Photographer it’s very easy for me to see the spark in others.  I can find something beautiful in everyone I meet. To me, beauty is something you feel; not something you see and “seeing” you is an […]

Getting a step ahead!

Marketing! Pfft….I’m usually always late and chasing my tail! Well enough is enough and I’m finally early. (WAY early!) I have an idea for Father’s Day (2018!) and I’ve created these portraits to illustrate that idea. Aren’t they gorgeous!

Beauty and Society | Exist in Print | Part 3

Beauty in our Society “The most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or touched, they must be felt.” Helen Keller Young children love looking at themselves and having their picture taken.

Enough | Exist in Print | Part 2

Enough of “Not Enough!” At some point, whether you like it or not, someone is going to need a picture of you. What are they going to say at your funeral? “We don’t have a photo of her because she thought her butt was too big?” Or….”Oh goodness No! We can’t possibly show her photo […]
