  • How you can turn family dinner into a photo session - natural light

        Lake Cumberland - Our family vacation. This kitchen was made for family laughter and memories.  The sunlight poured in as we made dinner with the girls and it was the perfect setup for a silhouette image of my husband full of love & laughter. Lens - 85 1.4 shot at 1.4.  This is a perfect lens for capturing subjects without being too close.  What I love most about documentary photography is that any detail and situation works as long as it tells a story.  Capture the laughs ...

  • Photography - photographing the details of a teenagers life

    Much of our vacation consisted of teenage girls in front of mirrors.  Have you any idea what that means in the photography world?  Photo session!  One thing I learned with two kids out of the house is that moments like this must be documented.  If I could go back in time I would take photos of every detail of their world and for our girls much of this consists of makeup and prep time. This session was edited with Colorvale's Luxe Film ACR Presets       What were t ...

  • Outdoor Photography - Shooting Wide Open 85 1.4

      One of the things I know I miss about my son as a young child are the moments we spent doing things together with no interruption.  Now that he is a young adult I can't seem to get any alone time.  When we went this weekend to my father-in-laws I couldn't wait to capture these types of moments with my husband and his father.  I am sure Lenard feels the same way about his son which makes this moment of them doing some yard chores extra special quality time. This session was edited with ...

  • Window Light - My favorite natural light photography setup

    It isn't often that I pull away from business and enjoy a vacation.  There are deadlines, orders and clients I just can't seem to keep waiting but this year it was important to regroup and spend quality time with those that are most important to me. Not to mention it was about time I picked up my camera and shot for ME!  I am often lost in the business aspect of what I do that the "art" is just not a priority any more.  Watch my journey and remember that how I shot, how I edit, and what I see ...

  • Weekly Photo Challenge: Be Inspired | Around the House Picks

    I'm a 'silver-lining' kind of girl and it's led me to find beauty in all things around us. When we launched the 'Around the House' theme, I really hope that it inspired you to look a little closer into your world to seek beauty. My unfinished rooms with no floor trim, drawer of baby bottles that won't close, and the endless days full of time outs for my toddler when she takes her little brother's toys are just as beautiful as they are frustrating. You see, it is in these little challenges and fr ...

  • Client Session Organizer & Washi Tape To Organize Your Photography Business

    I am washi tape obsessed. I use it it on everything from my computer, to my packages i send out to clients, and I LOVE using it in my Colorvale Session Organizer as a highlighter. I'll write quotes overtop of the washi that inspire me, or use it to point to something thats super important/time sensitive. I love how there are blank spots throughout the book to customize, and when there aren't, I simply cross out what I might not use and write in something new. For example, on the first page I cro ...
