Almost 16 years ago to this day, I accompanied my Grandma to Bolivia as she was taking a sort of reunion trip. Her family had lived there during her teen years as missionaries. I don’t remember what church they were serving under, but do remember that her time there left a lasting impression. She had […]

When I was 20, my entrepreneurial Uncle Ron took me, and my cousin (his son) to a big business conference in Portland, Oregon. We heard from many leaders and successful business people about what it takes to succeed. The only part that really sticks out in my mind was a spot that Goldie Hawn filled. […]

Behind the Scenes Portraits: Studio Lighting

Behind the Scenes Portraits: Studio Lighting

Almost exactly one month after taking The Lighting Challenge: Natural vs. Studio lighting course, I booked several hours at Urban Light Studio to practice what I learned. I was giddy, nervous and excited – like the first day of school or something. Part of my nervousness came from my photography posse: I had a Make […]

Learning More Than Just Lighting

Learning More Than Just Lighting

It’s funny how inspiration strikes in the most unlikely places. When I walked into the Creative Live course, The Lighting Challenge: Natural vs. Studio, I expected to learn how to use Studio lighting in a way that wasn’t harsh or difficult. The reason I have stayed away from studio lighting all this time is that […]

Learning About Light

By
May 19, 2014

Someone once said that photography is all about light. Today, I am sitting in the student’s seat to learn more about studio light. Photography is one part science and one part art. With my love of nature, I use natural light with ease. But, when indoors, using staged lighting or studio lighting, I get a […]

If you look through our family photo albums, I’m rarely seen because I’m usually the photographer! Well, just before Christmas, I decided to ask our family portrait photographer to capture a photograph of me with just my kids… And then, just after the new year, I traded Head Shots with Melanie of Rio Jean Photography. […]

Childhood inspiration

Childhood inspiration

The other day, my kids had made a mess of legos on their bedroom floor just before bedtime. Instead of scolding them, I took a moment and saw the wonderland they had created. That made a light-bulb go off above my head: childhood is full of inspiration. You never know what experiences you provide a […]

Happy May! I don’t know about you, but I’m already thinking about Mother’s Day… That’s why I’m sharing this photography today – my first award winning photograph I took of my Mom, when I was 6. I won a ribbon at the Fair and was delighted. My Mom has been my number one fan and […]
