Michael and Christopher are the brothers of Kayla, who has been featured on the blog previously. I had the joy of shooting these boys recently, and I'm overjoyed at these images. These boys are just the sweetest kids, and even though they are 5 and 3 years old, they act so very mature for their age.


I like this image a lot, but to me it seems like he is 3 going on 30. He was quite the poser, and I've got tons of great shots of him. I even have a series where he just wanted to jump and down, and I figured I'd just let him do his thing. They turned out so cute and you can just see his little personality as he plays.


Michael was a bit timid in front of the camera, but after a while he warmed up. He just has an amazing gaze that is penetrating.

Mea Culpa!

I knew it had been far too long since my last blog entry, but until I had opened the blog itself did I realize how long I have put this off. I greatly apologize.

January has been a interesting month indeed. We spent the first part of the month attending the large Wedding Expo, and the Professional Photographers Association convention here in Phoenix. Also, the studio has been offline for quite a while as our new wood floors required some repairs due to damage during installation. A glue down hardwood floor is not an easy thing to repair as it requires taking a chisel and hammer to each board and effectively "cutting" them out. What was supposed to be a couple days turned into weeks. Definitely, not a fun time.

On the other hand, we do have some great news to announce. Starting in February, we will be offering custom framing as well as portraits. This will allow our clients to see exactly how their images can look and provide our expertise in choosing the complimentary frame/mat for each image. It also allows us to provide options for our clients, as we can package a portrait and frame combination, run specials, and devise collections at very competitive prices. We hope all our clients are as excited about this as we are.

I'll be adding some images to the website and blog later this week, so stay tuned.
