Testing new lights

One of my goals for 2012 has been to refine and be more creative with in-studio sessions.  I've been a natural light photographer for many years but I've always wanted to experiment and test different studio lighting options.  I delved more deeply into this last year, however this year I am taking it to a new level, and you'll be able to experience all the ups and downs with me as I post test shots and sneak peeks here on the blog.

One recent session was with friend and aspiring photographer Marissa.  You many recall Marissa's last session that was posted here, where you see she's a free spirit, not shy to try something new.  So with her new appearance, and my new light, I had to test her in studio again.  Here's a preview of one of my favorites images from her session.  More to come!

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
