Tina and Kyle - Portraits

All of my portrait sessions are important to me - but this one, was especially so.  Ms. Cartaino – also known as Tina – has been a household name for us for the last 3 years.  Tina was my son Jalen’s first official teacher, and now, she’s my daughter Janessa’s pre-k teacher.  They both adore her, and with good reason.  (And in a small-world story, Tina also happened to be a bridesmaid at Jen and Ryan’s Earth Day 2016 wedding.)  Suffice it to say, I wanted to repay the debt of gratitude we have for her, for all that she’s done to care for and teach my kids, the best way I know how – with beautiful pictures.  

  Janessa looks forward to choosing her outfit daily, talks about class and makes sure to do her “homework”  daily.  Beyond how happy she is everyday when she gets off the bus, sometimes Janessa comes home with a super awesome french braid, or new ponytail.

Needless to say, I’m beyond thrilled to be Tina and Kyle’s photographer, and am really looking forward to making some more amazing pictures together.

Melissa, Nick, Brandon & Lexy Portraits

It’s always a major honor when couples reach out for maternity, newborn, or family pictures after their wedding.  Melissa and Nick got married 10/10/15, and we did their wedding pictures at Knight Park.   We went back this summer to make these images happen.  It was so nice to see these two again, chase Brandon around the park for a few snaps, and of course meet baby Alexandra.  So glad to know this fam, and look forward to the next time we link up!




Random Snaps

The whole time I have had a camera in my hand, I’ve been stuck on the ground like a sucker.  Now I can put a lens in the air, and shoot. I do not consider myself a purist by any means, Im not out here shooting tintype.  I love seeing photography evolve, drones are another option.  This technology is truly amazing, very inspiring and pushes me to want to seek out rad spot to explore.  Looking forward to seeing what I can create.
