::Be Inspired Workshop:: Portland Oregon Posing & Lighting Workshop

I am a believer of fate.  It was about a year ago that I sat my computer scribbling pages of notes, trying to come up with a workshop concept.  A workshop that I wanted to teach.  Fast-forward to May 2011 and I was girl, standing before a room of photographers, living my dream.  There were no words to describe the amount of happiness I felt during those two days, it is a feeling that will live within me for the rest of my life.  That is the same feeling I feel right nowClick for more »

::Workshop Registration Special:: Wedding & Senior Portrait Photographer

When I was a young girl there were 3 things I said I would be when I grew up: An artist. A writer.  A teacher.  If you ask anyone in my family, they will assure you that this is 100% correct.  Of course, when we are young, we are dreamers.  How often is it that we fulfill our life ambitions?  Why is it that reality often robs us of the things we are passionate about, forcing us to live a life that is less than everything we ever hoped, dreamed and prayed it would be?

::Living by the Rules::

While shopping the other night, I laid eyes upon a treasure. One that stopped me in my tracks and forced me to read it from start to finish. What was it, you ask? A wall hanging entitled: Family Rules. Of course, I had to own this piece of fabulousness, and as I walked around my house last night trying to find the perfect location, the words staring me right in the face, I realized that these “rules” don’t just apply to our family- they also applyClick for more »
