B. Family

As I began typing this post I spent a few moments trying to think of a ‘clever’ adjective to best descibe this session’s title.  There were so many…B. Loving?  B. Close?  B. Fun?  However, more than anything this session seems to best be represented by one word…’family.‘  (um, yes…I know its not an adjective. *wink*) […]

FAQ-what is custom photography and why does it cost more $$?

So..let me go on the record and say custom lifestyle photography is NOT for everyone. (Though I certainly wish it were:-) Custom photography requires an excitement about capturing moments in your life vs. a snapshot, it typically requires a a bit more planning, more time on your (and your photographers) behalves. It is also a  higher investment than traditional portraiture. (Much like saving for an ‘investment’ piece of clothing or designer […]

B. 'Tu-Tu' Cute

I love every session.  I really do.  Cliche’ as it may be–having the ability to document a certain day, week, moment in someone’s life really is an honor.  But somedays….something just ‘clicks’…a combination of circumstances, lighting, happiness or chaos…the moment is just ‘perfect.’  And this session, ladies and gentlemen was one of those. When I met the Kalgren family ‘littlest’ […]

California Dreamin'–Take 1 (NAPCP Retreat!)

Wow!  Exhilarated.  Exhausted. And definitely playing a whole lot of catch up after 2 weeks of what my friends are referring to as my ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ trip.  Ha.  (What an awesome book, right?)
