Not too long ago, my husband Mat and I had a small get together with our friends who work with us for Riverland Studios. If you don’t know about Riverland, my husband and I own it together. It’s a collective group of super talented artists, who are all pros, own their own businesses, but also […]

Morning y’all! One of my goals this year was to have more time to blog and write. I hear people say all the time that they don’t have time to read blogs. I think if we are ALL honest with ourselves, we can make time for anything if we really WANT to. I used to […]

Okay, so I’m just going to break it to you girls out there …sassy heels and wedges are not good for shooting. Yes, I know. It is a huge bummer! You are around people all dressed up and want to dress up too. Truth be known, after 10-12 hours of shooting, your feet and back […]

When I started this business I figured out quickly that workshops were tough for me. I am a bit a.d.d., and have a difficult time learning with a ton of people around. I do best one on one. In the past 3 years I’ve gotten random emails asking about mentoring. When I had time, I […]

Alot of people ask me which lens is my favorite. I would have to say my 50mm f/1.2! This lens was so worth saving up money for. I am already a fan of “fixed” lenses…..This one does not disappoint! Here is an image from Tess and Rob’s wedding last month. I shot this of Tess […]

I love thunderstorms. Days like today make me want to stay in bed with a hot cup of coffee or tea, and write, think, pray and sleep. I am such a “doer” that it’s hard for me to stop and just “be.” It’s so important though, for anyone but especially an artist & photographer. We […]

This time of year always gives me time to reflect and think about my life and my business. I am still working (more than I’d like since I need a huge break!), but I am determined to find time for introspection….on my life, my purpose, why I’m doing this. It all started with an email […]

I have had other photographers ask me how I have networked and gotten my name out “there.” When I started my hair business, I just kind of thought one day, “Where would I go if I was a bride finding a stylist for my wedding day? WHO would I ask?” I made lists of people […]

In this post I have questions that I’ve been asked more than a few times! Q: How did you get into photography? Have you always […]

I just received an email from a gal named Kelly who is an oil painter. She wants to get into photography to “take photos that capture life and emotions.” Thanks for writing Kelly! Q: What photosoftware do you prefer? A: I use Lightroom2 and Photoshop CS4. Lightroom is super intuitive, and is awesome for correcting […]
