It is not unusual for clients to show up to sessions & tell me they are not photogenic. My response to this statement is always, “I don’t believe you,” because I honestly refuse to believe anyone simply does not photograph well. However, I have never had someone tell me they do not know how to […]

It’s not every day I get to venture away from my typical photoshoot locations to visit someone’s personal property for a session. You can equate the excitement to a field trip day in school!

    As soon as Maddison reached the end of the aisle where her groom, Trevor, was waiting for her, I watched as the two locked eyes & mouthed “I love you” to one another, their eyes each gleaming with joy. I always find it incredible to observe moments like this with my couples, but […]
