Bella the Ballerina

Here's another shoot I can't believe I never shared here.  I had the opportunity to photograph this sweet little ballerina and I had such a great time.  My heart is in dance so (clearly) I had just as much fun as little miss Bella!  


Catching up!

I've got a lot of catching up to do. I have 2 (maybe 3) years worth of portrait sessions that never made it to this photography blog. As I've mentioned before, I struggle with finding that one photo to sneak peek or share on FB, because I feel like just one photo doesn't tell the whole story. I approach my portrait sessions, weddings, events, etc with more of what I consider documentary style, resulting in collections of photos which all have a piece to the story. With that said, there's lots more to come on this blog.

Here is the Ginette family. It was a while back but feels like yesterday. I had so much fun with their family on that morning in Carmel.



Plants, Pottery, Flowers, and Fairy Gardens

Upon perusing my portfolio websites and facebook page, one may assume that I am strictly a “people photographer” (with exception to the occasional photo of my dog’s pretty little face every now and then) . This assumption is understandable but not true. Although I may lean towards people, emotion, and portraiture, I love to step out of the box whenever I can.

I was fortunate to photograph all the beauty at Griggs Nursery in Carmel Valley for their marketing needs and here are a few shots from my most recent shoot there…

I LOVE their fairy gardens....


Bursting from the soul

"A smile starts on the lips,

A grin spreads to the eyes,

A chuckle comes from the belly;

But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around."

-Carolyn Birmingham

I love being a photographer and getting to witness and capture moments like these...

I absolutely LOVE what I do.
