JTPA Families: Afternoon playtime with the... →
Capturing pictures is easy. Capturing personalities, not so much. Which is why one requires a good afternoon to make pictures that give you a small window into a family’s soul. An afternoon spent playing and singing and dancing and swinging. If you’re lucky, you will catch a glimpse of their world. A world where you need to sit still and watch and listen, or you’ll miss the bits that matter.
JTPA is giving away a mentoring workshop! →
If you’ve been following my work, you know I’ve been thinking about giving classes and mentoring. After going back and forth, endless discussions with my husband/motivator/devil’s advocate, and endless discussions with myself, I thought perhaps I should give it a go. And what better way to do that than in a giveaway!

JTPA Families: Celebrating Baby Joshua →
Most people do not really think about it but timing when your baby pics are taken is crucial to the success of a great baby photo shoot. There are two optimum times for this: Newborns before 12 days old and babies at 6-8 months old. Most of the time, these are my two favorite age

Jessica and Rusty have a special place in my heart. A few weeks after Jessica emailed me, her dad passed away. And yet, she had found time to contact me to let me know that while the wedding was still going to happen and that while they were interested in my services, circumstances had changed dramatically. Something told me I had to do something, so I called and we chatted. A few months later,...
