After much, MUCH, MUCH consideration, I have decided to start charing for my photography services. This has been a hard decision for me because I love to give people gifts and photographs are the best gifts I have to give. But after evaluating my time, travel, and materials, I have decided to take the plunge and become official! I have kept my prices extremely low for a couple of reasons:

1. I am still learning, going to school, shooting things I have yet to shoot...ect...

2. While still learning, I still do not have the means for professional equipment such as a CD printer, super sweet packaging, ect. But have no fears, your images will be to die for and top notch quality!

3. Because I love you and want you to give me the opportunity to show you your beauty!

Please visit my investments page for pricing information.

When considering my prices, I made sure to keep in mind that I am still a student who is learning and striving through my learnings at The Art Institute of Portland. Right now, my prices are kept low but eventually, I will increase them over time. 

Thanks for all of your support and understanding! I hope to see you soon!

Sweet Meredith!

Yet again, I was suppose to be working on a fashion shoot (you know, shooting the outfit, shoes, earrings, ect) but it is so hard to focus on boring aspects when you have such a gorgeous model! A friend from work volunteered her super sweet sister to be a model for me. I had what I wanted in mind and she was fine with doing what I needed. But once we started shooting, I lost my focus...I guess we can add fashion photography to my "cannot do" list! Lets add "portrait on location" photography instead!

I took Meredith out to a vacant field that I had shot in the day before (see Sabrina's blog!). It's a great, big field with a huge, old tree and a couple of hay stacks. Perfect for shooting in! There were a ton of crickets attacking us while we shot and we had to be super careful while we walked as there were a few poky weeds around. But nevertheless, we conquered that field and got some great shots!

Never underestimate a strong woman...a lovely, sweet, caring, and beautiful woman...

See what I am talking about...

Thank you soooo much Meredith for being such a willing and great model! You are so beautiful! I hope you enjoy your pictures as much as I have...and Jenn, thank you so much for finding me the PERFECT model!! You both are awesome!

Heart Breaker Alert!

Oh today was SOOO much fun! I had the extreme pleasure of photographing Sabrina, a friend of ours little girl! How cute is she! No, seriously! She is ADORABLE! I couldn't stop telling her how awesome she looked in the pictures! And she was SUCH a natural! When I told her this, she said "It's because I watch America's Next Top Model!" Well, sheesh, that's all it takes!?

This was suppose to be a "fashion shoot" for a final project coming up...but...needless to say, I had other things in mind once Sabrina got in front of the lens...she was way to pretty to just focus on the clothing!

I am so glad that Sabrina and her mom April were willing to let me photograph Sabrina while exploring areas of Washington. I had so much fun with them! I miss them terribly through out the year (April's kids are seriously the cutest, most well behaved kids ever!) as we only seem to find one day out of 365 to get together. Hopefully that will change though...hopefully more pictures will be in order...hint hint :)

Hope you all have a wonderful labor day weekend! Stay safe!
