This little beauty is just 10 days old. Her Mom, Grandpa, and big sister came to see me today, and it was my pleasure to capture a few images.


When shooting children, especially babies, you can guarantee no two sessions are alike. About the only thing you can guarantee is that someone is going to get wet (usually me and Mom for sure). I'd have to say that Sasha is one of the most unique babies I've been able to shoot. She made me work harder than I have in quite a long time. Good practice!

Ducati 1098


Had a wonderful chance to shoot a Ducati 1098 this morning as part of a calendar series. This bike is going to be used for the month of April. I did several angle shots of the bike, as well as quite a few close-ups. It's always fun to shoot a subject that doesn't have a "bad" side. No matter which angle I used, there was always something visually interesting about this bike.


Although I'm a fan of Japanese motorcycles, I'll readily admit that this Italian machine is simply gorgeous.

I had a really interesting call yesterday from a previous client. It seems that her daughter's softball team is trying to put together a fundraising auction, and she wanted to know if I would be willing to participate. Hey, it's for the kids, right? Who could pass that up.

So, I'm going to donate a free portrait session, and a free 16x20 mounted print. I'm also going to be giving a 25% discount off any other prints purchased from this session, and discounting any custom framing as well. The session fee, and print, are valued at over $400, so someone should be getting a good deal.

Hopefully that will bring a few shekels in for the team. I just need to get a slide show presentation for them to run at the auction table, so the bidders can see examples of my work.

New Website

"The only constant is change." -Heraclitus

I've really been yearning to update the website for quite a while now. I wanted a complete restructuring of the galleries, and find something that fit better with my photographic style. The previous iteration of the website was designed primarily around just fine art. This new site has a far more contemporary look, but still allows for the fine art images to be displayed well. I also needed a better method to display some of the commercial work for my clients, as commercial assignments are becoming a larger part of our work. So, now I have a reserved, and logon protected, area for my commercial clients.

Feel free to take a look and tell us what you think. The "Contact Us" section has been updated with an online form so that you don't have to use your own email. Just type in your email address and your message and the website will generate the email for you.

Stunning....simply stunning.

Not much to say about this young lady. Diana is the younger sister of Christina below. When I was able to take Christina's pictures, I was so very lucky to be able to shoot Diana as well.

I could tell you how gorgeous she is, how she is just a joyful person, and all of that. However, as a wise man once said, "A picture is worth a thousand words." So, here is a few thousands words worth of beauty.




Of course, I had to get a shot of these beautiful ladies together:

High School Senior special

May starts our favorite time of year at the studio. It's High School Senior season!

Now is a great time for the class of 2010 to have their senior pictures taken. For that reason, we are offering a special here at the studio:

*Any senior session booked during the month of May will receive 1/2 off the session fee (A $200 value).

We will also be giving away two free sessions this month, and all senior sessions will receive their images on CD.

To receive this offer, you need to call us during the month of May, and is for "in studio" sessions only.

Here are examples from our 5/2 session:

Senior session


This stunning young woman is Christina. She is graduating this year, and I was fortunate enough to be able to provide some senior images for her. Obviously, I don't have to tell you how much fun it can be to shoot someone so beautiful.

My luck must be with me today, because I not only got to shoot Christina, but her gorgeous sister Diana. Diana is 15, a gymnast, and runs track. I'm still working on those images, so stay tuned.

One last thing about Christina. For some reason, her boyfriend didn't take her to prom. That caused me to come up with the image below. Something tells me that not taking Christina to prom is going to haunt some man for the rest of his life.
