I. Love. Fall. Lots of rain this year, and a late color explosion meant having to shuffle the schedule around significantly. But I take advantage of every opportunity I get (especially when it's with my own favorite subjects)😀😁

Low key portraiture? Absolutely. Impactful to look at and beautiful when displayed in the home gallery-style. Whether a simple portrait of a little one, or a whole family...the look is striking and (unlike many 'trends' in photography) will never go out of style!

Since my wife is due this month, I decided to take the month off and not book clients. Instead, as we prepare for the birth of our 3rd child, I decided to undertake some family sessions with MY family and have some fun. I am so glad that I did. And thank you to my clients that rescheduled for accommodating the changes. Big fall promotion coming after Labor day (both) lol!

Sometimes, a sense of 'place' is necessary in an image. I've taught students and assistants over the years to 'engage what you see initially, then back up and take a moment to look around'. Sometimes, what draws us to photograph something, is just the start...here are a couple examples of this...

Handsome little devil! I love shooting late in the day, but I dislike the trendy 'actions' and 'presets' I see used so frequently for images taken early or late in the day. So, I choose my angle, timing, and exposure carefully. Then minor tweaks in lightroom or capture one and BAM. My own touch.

I've had several inquiries over the course of the last year or so, asking if I do boudoir photography. The answer is 'yes'. I'm actually very experienced in most (if not all) kinds of portraiture. If you are looking to book a session for someone special (or to surprise a loved one for a special occasion), call or message me for details.

One of the most important things I do as a portrait photographer is bring together families spanning many generations. Do you have a large family? Struggle to get great portraits of them all during the (rare) together times? Don't wait. Do it now, as these are the images you'll treasure for generations to come.
