#552The Beauty from Within

The Beauty from Within
    Sophia Loren once said, "Beauty is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes." The beauty from within each and every one of us will shine like a beacon if we let it. We all have beautiful gifts to share with the world: Our kindness. Our empathy. Our love. Our talents. Our loyality. Our laughter. Our joy. All these wonderful qualities that[...]

#549Times they are a Changin’…New Studio, New Vision, New Outlook On Life

Times they are a Changin'...
Hello out there!  Are you there? The past few months have been a time for great change for me, personally and professionally, and the fact of the matter is, I haven't really been sure how to share all this transformation with you, so as a result, so I've been flying somewhat under the radar. But after months of  introspection, I am feeling more clear with the directio[...]

#548One final Naples Wedding…Port Royal Club, Naples, Florida

One final Naples Wedding...
This post is a little bittersweet for me.  After 20+ years, I think I can say that this here might be one of the last weddings that I photograph.  For the past few years I've been building up my portrait business and am now moving more into the education realm.  The truth is, that I really fall in love with so many of my brides and the last two weddings in particular [...]

#545Beautiful Beach Portraiture{Naples, Florida}

Beautiful Beach Portraiture
I have spent three consecutive years with this sweet and lovely family.  As an artist, I really try and work on capturing images that truly "speak" to my clients.  Beyond the skillfully posed and lit large family portraits, and well beyond the candid shots that capture a moment in time, recently my focus has shifted and I am more and more looking to capture that perfe[...]

#543 Mother & Daughter Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
Recent images from a session at The Ritz-Carlton where we focused on #motherdaughterportraits.  This is the 3rd year I've had the oppertunity to photograph this beautiful little girl.   Sometimes at this age, my favorite images are the first of the session, when kids may be a little more pensive and timid.  That initial shyness often provides amazing oppertunity to ca[...]

#542 Naples Beach Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
One part of my job that I really love is finding the threads that help my client's engage, with me and with each other.  It's like a mystery, and I only have a limited of time to uncover the secrets.  I work to find these commonalities whether my clients are 5 or 85.  These little siblings didn't need a whole lot of coaxing to engage with each other because they were [...]

#539 Creating lasting imagery; Mother & Child Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
There are thousands are impactful photographs that we all come across on social media every month, every week, even every hour.  But for me, there are a few images that I always come back to.  What's interesting for me, is that all the photos that really resonate in my mind are Mother & Child portraits.  These images are burned into my brain as some of the best "r[...]

#529 Flower Child {Naples, Florida}
Sometimes it all just comes together beautifully, like it did last week while working at the Naples Botanical Gardens with this beautiful muse.  The whole energy of this shoot was just perfect and my lovely model just kept engaging the camera in a way that not many 11 year olds know how to do.  I say this again and again, but I am there to draw the best I can out of m[...]
