"Not Everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs." -Ansel Williams







It has been a while since my last post and a lot has been going on. I wanted to share the above quote with you because I feel it portrays photography quite well. I have found an old newspaper article that has several TidBits on Photography that I am going to share with you over the next few months. I also wanted to to let everyone know the studio is finally open. YEA!!! It has taken me three years to get this studio and I am so excited. Over the Thanksgiving weekend I had the pleasure of using the Gross Family as my guinea pigs. They were awesome..we got to use the lights I had purchased three years ago from a studio that was closing in Greenfield. I am sure most of you remember SEVEN SEAS. They were great and a lot of help to me in my photography journey and were always there to lend a hand. It was always nice to just go and talk to them about almost anything. I have included tonight some of the shots from Saturday...if anyone needs photos for the Holidays I am running a special and it will be $50 which includes your sitting and about 20 images on a CD with full copyright access..give me a call if you want to schedule...and remember people BELIEVE in Photographs!!

Day One

Well I have done it! I have created a blog..now what do I do?? I hope to figure it all out so you can see all the great people and children I have been busy taking pictures of. I love being able to capture their memories and chapters in each one of their lives. I have especially enjoyed the babies I have gotten to do this winter. They are so precious. I hope you enjoy what I want to share!

Helpful Hints to making your photo session great!


When would be the best time for us to get our photos taken?

The best time to take outside pictures is early morning or later in the afternoon to try and avoid shadows

How long does it take to see my proofs?

I do proofs online which should cut the time for viewing to just a week. Then I will email you your link for you to share with family and friends.

What can I expect from my session?

FUN! We want to make this a wonderful experience for you!

What kind of things can I bring?

Hats, friends, pets, uniforms, musical instruments, hobbies, sunglasses, your car, letter jackets, etc. Whatever makes you unique.

What about hair, make up and glasses?

Bring glasses without frames if possible. Give a haircut or hairdo a couple of days to relax and grow out. Guys, remember to have a fresh shave. Gals, use slightly more make up, but don't overdo it.

What if it rains?

Go ahead with your indoor session as planned and we will do the outdoor session another day. Overcast days are just as good as sunny ones.
