About Me

My photo
I am a family, portrait, wedding and lifestyle photographer. The process of making people comfortable with the camera is just as much of a passion for me as is capturing the moment. It is important to me to make the photo session experience a memorable one as well. I know it's a generic statement but I am passionate about life and the urgency to document the moments as they unfold. Take time to invest in the days of your lives. Call me--I can help! I've created a "book of days" gallery on my website: where I do that for my own life. Hopefully it showcases who I am as a person as well as as a photographer.

studio time...

i had the pleasure of attending an Illuminate Photography ( worshop over the past few weeks. yesterday, the last class in the session, was absolutely amazing. we worked with a burlesque model both in the studio and outside within our instructor's property in the pristine mountains of colorado.

we learned. and learned. and played. and learned some more. and laughed. and laughed. it was magical.

vivienne, our model, was stunning and experienced and personable and patient. and did i mention beautiful?

richard peterson, our host and instructor invited us into his personal space--his home, land, and studio and shared some wonderful knowledge with us. his work reeks of creativity, passion and purpose. and his kindness is apparent in his beautiful an sweet eyes.

efrain, the owner of the school and creator of the class, was beyond patient in sharing basic and complex knowledge with us (as well as popeye's chicken, beans and rice and mashed potatoes). he is the most compassionate and effective photography instructor i have ever had. oh--and he has beautiful and kind eyes too!

i just love the images and the memories of our time together.

next post will have pics of my instructors and classmate/new friend onay!

I LOVE what you did with Vivienne! She is stunning, and your portraits of her are, too.

Sounds like a wonderful class!

I want Vivienne's shoes.
