HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAUGHTER!!





Today is my middle daughters 14th birthday.  I cannot express into words how much I love this girl. She is beauty, grace and strength.  She is growing into a beautiful young woman.  The light was magic at our session the other evening.

I love you 
I am proud of you

Happy Birthday.

.solitude.


In Solitude I remain
With absolutely nothing to gain
Perhaps in time I will be strong...

.ARTIST's FAVORITE.


My absolute FAVE of the session. (There were several) :)


DYLAN "Class of '09"






Had a GREAT session with this upcoming senior.  We battled the heat and smoke, and in the end I was very pleased with how the session turned out. Although, a two year old  could take a picture of this guy, and it would be awesome.  Thank you Lynne for allowing me the opportunity to photograph your delightful son and sweet daughter.

.backlighting.



Took my girl out for a mini-session last week to play with some backlighting exposures.  Being a natural-light photographer, I am always challenged with different lighting scenarios.  I try to shoot most of my sessions in open shade, so I don't have to struggle with specular highlights, and harsh lighting.  But, some of my favorite shots I have are in lighting situations like this.  I love how the light wraps around her face, highlighting her femininity.  It's all about the light. :)

.Roman and Parker.








This was the best session ever.  2 years and 2 months are very difficult ages to photograph, and  I had both!! I must say though that I am very pleased with the results.  Mr. Roman (2 yr old) is such a beautiful boy.  Such a serious lil man.  His new brother is so sweet, and just as handsome.  Mama is the sweetest, and was so patient with all of my ideas. :) Thanks for the opportunity!
