Hello there Friends!
Just recently I put my kids through the torture of being a photographer's child! Oh the sweet satisfaction it was to put them through it. I have an old door with window panes that I want to fill with images and hang on my wall! It will look awesome! So outside we went- to the very depths of the untamable nature that is my front yard!
First, I started with my son Caden and the last homeless kitten that was looking for adoptive parents. Almost, like an Oliver and company movie, just less dramatic- If we couldn't find a home for him we were willing to keep him. Who can say no to a kitty?!
Caden was not feeling well that day so he lasted maybe 10 minutes. It was morning light and very soft light. He looked beautiful and although the kitten whom had never been outside before was a tad scared he did well in Caden's arms. Here are the images I have decide to print.
Now, I will not lie to you, I thought it would just be Caden and the kitten and I would do another theme for Corben. But then, Corben saw me editing and sharing these images and decided he want to do an animal session too. So he borrowed a critter from an anonymous neighbor and gave me the fastest 5 minute shoot I have ever had. He was totally in charge. I went along with it happy my son was telling e how it was going to to be. He would not be outdone by his brother. And so we went to the same spot in the front yard in the last rays of the day. The sun was harsh, not yet hidden by the hill side but the rays had turned orange. He sat and beauty happened in an instant as he showed me the same loving and caring qualities Caden had in just a few brief moments.
Corben was done he said. I was out of time. I had not directed him, but he was not interested anymore. I backed up and he was about to raise himself up when the critter moved and the next award winning image was captured.
Now, These images did not just look like this. I used the skills I have picked up over the years to retouch them to look this way. This image was taken in my front yard and the images have been edited in a way to minimize that appearance.
Photography is a sum of many parts. Light, composition, gear, location, subject and editing. Choosing a photographer a choosing the sum of all those parts. Skills, experience and education make up for amazing images. I only hope that my work will continue to grow and so will my business. Please help my business grow.

I and my family thank you so much!
