New Personal Work (series)

I first debuted a few of these photos last year to show some new personal work I had done. Over the past year(ish), I've added some more, taken some out, shown a few in art exhibitions, added some other ones, and taken more out. It's an on-going series, but I wanted to post an update on the batch I currently have as a set, including some of the images I haven't shown yet. The series is still yet to be titled, but my vision statement and the few that have individual titles (along with descriptions of what you're looking at) are listed below.

By bringing objects from nature into a studio setting, I am able to look past the obvious, observe it in detail, and even find little surprises and treasures in the process. By lighting a skull in a similar way to one of my portraits, I can breathe some life back into it. I hope to inspire others to pause and more carefully inspect our natural world and be awed by it's complexity and beauty.

Frozen Winter Portraits

When your child now has a very strong opinion about what they do and do not want in their holiday photo... you end up adding a little extra magic to make her Elsa.


Victoria & Amelia

Sometimes, a client comes to me wanting pictures but doesn't have any preconceived ideas for it, or set any limits on how to do them. In this case, she told me to "do what you do". Getting to shoot in my own style is simply the best, and shoots like these always end up being both the most fun to shoot, and some of my favorite images! 

This year I went with a "Blue Christmas" color scheme for this mother and daughter duo, and adore how their beauty and love radiates and shines through.
