#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[...]

#550Pretty as a picture: Embracing the good, the bad and the ugly, whatever that looks like.

Pretty as a picture: Embracing the good, the bad and the ugly, whatever that looks like.
Life isn’t always as it it appears. As a professional photographer, I am well aware of the 'image' so many of my clients want to portray when they hire me to capture portraits their family.  It’s human nature to want to show our best selves to the world. Social media has increased the need for us to control how we portray ourselves and as a result, so many of us only [...]

#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[...]

#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 [...]

#541 Children's Beach Portraiture {Naples, Florida}
Beautiful portraits of this sweet family who braved the cold last week while visiting Naples.  I ended up shooting a bit more candid style of work than typical, but am very happy with  what was captured.  I especially like seeing these images in B&W.  It gives the images a real timeless feel.  

#537 Using Natural Backlight {Naples, Florida}

#537 Using Natural Backlight {Naples, Florida}
When working outside in bright light, I find it helpful to try and keep the sun to my client's back, creating a soft even shadow on the front of their faces.  By positioning my clients with their back's to the sun, I am able to keep their faces evenly light and am preventing harsh shadows on any one person's face.  This is especially helpful for me here in Florida, wh[...]

#536 Benefits of changing up your location during your photo session {Naples, Florida}

#536 Benefits of changing up your location during your photo session {Naples, Florida}
Today I want to discuss the benefits of shooting in various locations during your photo sessions.  Let me start by saying that moving locations is not always super easy, so I tend to not offer this option unless I'm working with a small groups.  Changing up the location is absolutely perfect for a High School Senior or maybe a small group of 2-3 siblings.  Changing th[...]

#534 Family Beach Photography {Naples, Florida}
Hello January!  I am still posting work from Thanksgiving week--eeek!  Not a great way to start the New Year...behind already! I have to say, as much as I love Lily Pulitzer, there is something about Black and White photographs on the beach that is simply so timeless.   I have been working a ton with off-camera lighting recently and loving the result.  Here my ligh[...]

#531 Family Beach Photography {Naples, Florida}
These images are the perfect example of how fast the lighting can change within one hour at the end of the day.  The color temperature goes from a cool blue to warm oranges and purples all within an hour.  It's key as a photographer to recognize the changing light and adjust your flash accordingly. This family is as every bit as lovely on the inside as they are gor[...]

#528 O' Christmas Tree {Naples, Florida}
Well if this wasn't the sweet little shoot.  Who says we can't make it feel like "up north" here in Florida- minus the snow of course.  I love when I can collaborate with clients -- this creative idea was all mom's idea she did a fantastic job styling the kids!  Now if this doesn't put a little Merry in your step I don't know what does.
