Some things don’t go unnoticed!

When I first looked into having a blog. I researched what a blog “actually was”. A blog is intended to be an online diary

To the customer from the business owner. At professional photographers of America seminars, they say to talk about your life… and most important, every post SHOULDN”T be photography related. This post is kind of personal…


As a professional photographer, I feel that the greatest thing that I can do for my client… IS TO BE UNIQUE!

And in my own way- do things different for them. Not always the same pose that worked last week, and definitely not one that I saw on a website of a photographer in the same town. I don’t understand that… If you want to copy off another photographer, do a google search for photographer in California. There are an abundance of awesome photographers from all over the world who do incredible work. We live in a small town and some things just don’t go unnoticed….


I am honored to see that one in particular likes my work so well…But come on people- Can we not be creative on our own? BE CREATIVE IN YOUR MIND,  And tell YOUR clients story from YOUR point of view. That is what they hired you for. I often plan for hours and dig deep into my creative side to make my clients portraits look like no other. After all that is the joy of being a professional photographer— Telling the story how YOU see it.


Wow, doesn’t it feel great sometimes to just talk about how you feel? As a woman, sometimes just getting “it” of your chest, can open up a brand new day… Especially when it is something that has been on your mind for months.

A sneak peak for mom and dad… I Couldn’t resist showing off some shots from this session… I am not sure we could even try to pose these shots…This family didn’t have to be told how to have fun just rolling in the grass… Something told me they had done this before.  Enjoy!

where’s the beach?

Wow people… where is the beach? A family and I went to the beach for family pictures last week and when we got there…there was no beach. My first thought was that this family would be dissatisfied with pictures at the beach- if their were no beach. We had no choice with daylight ending shortly to stay at the location we were at.  We did our best to get the water in the background and we also did some shots by the bridge. When Rachel go the proofs back, boy was I wrong. She loved them… This beach scene is one that I will use again….

Congratulations to Brian Resenbeck and Kiona Kunkler for winning King and Queen at your 2008 Morp. Also, congratulations to Levi Weddle and Natascha Tooley for winning Prince and Princess. Everyone looked so grown up, it was sad… Sad to us parents who still see our children as children. Anyways…how exciting for them to come home with roses, crowns, and sashes. 

Thanks to Hedi and Nicole for putting on such a memorable event. Along with all the work that they both put into making MORP a wonderful evening for the kids. It was a night they will remember forever…

I dropped a box of cereal last week all over the kitchen floor. My instant thought was- how cute would that be for a picture. And boy was I right!! With each touch of the shutter on my camera. I could image what graden would have been saying if the could only say complete sentences.

“come on dad, just let me finish…”  Hope you enjoy these shots as much as I do… Thanks Tiff and Brady-We loved your messy boy!
