How to Prevent a Wedding Hangover

Wedding season is sneaking up on us and for many it has already started. Last year I found myself completely useless the mornings after shooting a full wedding and often wondered how people could ever shoot two weddings in one weekend. Quite honestly, after my first wedding of the year last year, getting out of […]


Yes! I Will Travel to Your Wedding!

Every so often while chatting with friends or other newlyweds, I hear something like, “We would have hired you to shoot our wedding but we didn’t think you’d travel that far.” It makes me quite sad because, while a lot of people think they have to find someone local to shoot their wedding, most photographers […]


Photography for a Cause

During the month of April, my photographer friend Chris holds an annual event called Photography for a Cause. Photography For a Cause is a collection of photographers who want to give back to their local, national and international communities by selling their art and donating 100% of print profits to incredible non profit organizations. This […]


A Heart for the Studio

I’ve recently realized that I really enjoy fashion. Not like styling clothes and looking all trendy… no, I need my sister for that kind of thing. I’m talking about shooting fashion work. Or mimicking fashion work. I am one of those people that once I’ve locked into a passion, I have to learn everything I […]


Funny Friday: The Concert Heard in China

Okay. There’s only one funny meme/image today, but you better get ready for it. Seriously, I could not stop laughing last night as I was reading this, and I even almost fell out of my chair. Literally. It has to do with band and reading music, so if you played an instrument at all in […]


A Non-Prepper’s Guide to Emergency Preparedness

I have a confession to make. I am a prepper. Well, kinda. Not really. Not one of those crazy doomsday preppers with an underground bunker stocked with ammo and stupplies. I’m not preparing for the end of life as we know it, or the collapse of civilization, or aliens, or zombies. So I guess hard […]


Looking Forward… Good Times to Come!

Sometimes I really don’t want to sit down and write blog posts. I have to be in the zone… so when I don’t feel like it, I don’t do it, and then next thing you know a couple weeks have gone by without a new post! Gahh! I promise the blog will recommence soon! Here […]

Client Wedding Albums: Madera Books

I might be the most inconsistent blogger on the planet. Some weeks I’m so gung-ho about blogging and other weeks I just don’t even feel like writing. I’m trying to get better, I promise! So I have this folder on my desktop where my personal photos get dumped into until I have time to go […]
