Rusty & Kristin

I had a lot of fun with this family!  The little one was the biggest ham and made the shoot fun and challenging. =)  I always look for a good challenge...especially one with dimples!  Dad is deploying soon and they wanted to get in a few family pictures before he leaves.

Individual Sports Cards

This is something I learned how to do recently.  I found a tutorial online that was recommended by Scott Kelby...he is awesome by the way...and I really like the effect!

In this first one, I downloaded a free texture background from the internet.  I ended up not liking the download, because it was not a great for the second and third ones, I did a photoshoot at Home Depot to get some better quality textures!  I spent 45 minutes in the store taking pictures of flooring, counter top, tile, and other building supplies.

  The textures on the girls's cards is from Home Depot!

Pumpkin Patch

I don't usually take the chance to have a photo shoot with my own family, but this fun pumpkin patch was just perfect!

Clint & Emily

This was my very first session with clients I had never met beforehand!  Loved meeting you two!  Such a great shoot!  Clint was on his way home from a long deployment with the Navy.  Emily came to see him early before his homecoming on the mainland.  I learned from this shoot is that when there is a toddler in the pictures, I need to remember to bring something to catch their attention!  Baby would look up whenever the flash went off, and then promptly look back down...before I could get the flash to go off again!  I made it work though. =)

I thought I'd add this to show how I "create" some of my photos!  I don't always get the shot I want, but I can usually make a great shot out of two or three frames!

Kyle & Ali

This couple was so fun to work with! I had a blast with them! =) Aren't they the cutest couple ever!?! Husband is recently home from a one year deployment to Afghanistan. Thanks Ali and Kyle for making this such a fun session!
