Whether you think it is fair or not, how you present yourself is very important, especially in the professional setting.  It affects how others perceive your intelligence, education and capabilities.  From the very first glance, it can make or break whatever follows.  Leading with the right foot, is your most important asset and tool to help grow your business, gain quick respect or keep good rapport in the business world with clients and colleagues.

This standard isn’t only apparent when meeting someone, but also with how you present yourself to others through advertising materials.  In this day in age, just a name on a business card is almost something out dated.  We are living in a more technological driven society where visuals are everything.  From Business Websites, to Billboards, to Professional groups like, LinkedIn; images are thrown into our faces daily.  All of these forms of advertisement, most likely have a face or at the very least a visual of some kind attached to it.  It is better to have more than just a word to remember something by, the most attachments you can create to a brand the better…so back to those business cards.  It is very common for business cards to have a picture on them and your LinkedIn profile to not have a picture you would also have as your main profile picture on Facebook.

Your career is your lifeline and that lifeline deserves the best representation of you…a professional headshot.  Leave the iPhone photos for facebook, we can all tell it was a selfie with bathroom lighting and attempted from 20 different angels.  Be as professional with your career as the face you want to lead you, getting a professional headshot is one of the best things you can do for your professional outlook.  They say a picture tells a thousand words.  You wouldn’t want one of those words to be negative now would you?

They’re heeeerrreeeee!  I have new album samples for viewing for your pre-consultation.  Albums make such a great gift for your loved ones if they want to keep secret pictures of you at their work desk, or they also make a perfect gift for the soldier in your life who’s away on duty.  I offer 3 album sizes: 5×5, 8×8, and 10×4, which all three come in your choice of Vegan and Leather covers.  You can pick out your favorite 20 images you want, and I place the order that day.  Albums arrive approximately between 2-3 weeks.  So, be sure to book your session so that there is plenty of time to order your album.

My current display is my 8×8 and 5×5 Vegan albums.

January 19

It’s been awhile since I last wrote on this blog.  As matter of fact, unless I check my archives, I can’t remember when I wrote last.  So why today?  Why now?  Well, simply, I have some things to say.  The past few years of my business have been an eye opening and even more, a heart opening experience.  I have been able to go places, see beautiful things, and meet beautiful people. Within that time, I have had many moments of self reflection, especially this past year.  For the past 6 years I have been a wedding and portrait photographer and I have learned a lot from this business.  I’ve had a chance to connect with many of my clients on a deep level and even better, reconnect with people I have not seen in years.  It’s amazing how time flies and how the years just past by in a blink.  During my times of self reflection, I have come to a hard truth and have been scared to admit for sometime, but I’ve built up the courage to say out loud that I will not photograph weddings for my business anymore.  It’s not that I don’t like them and I certainly don’t hate them.  I just don’t feel as passionately about weddings as most of my colleagues are and their images are proof of their enthusiasm.  I enjoy shooting weddings but I prefer a more sidekick approach which is second shooting for other photographers, in which I will continue to do so.

With all that being said, I am still photographing.  My camera is not sitting down.  As a matter of fact, I am very excited and happy to announce that I will be photographing boudoir and glamour photography.  What does this mean?  It means I will dedicate my business and life to making beautiful images of everyday women and helping them appreciate a little bit more of who they are and what they do.  My heart just swells just typing that out.  I have always been inspired with people in general, and I’ve always wanted to connect with them more on a deep and profound level.  At the same time, I am fighting for women on their definition of what beautiful is.  I will always disagree with women who badger themselves in how bad they look and only encourage how wonderful they are.  Confidence, encouragement, appreciation, acceptance, friendliness, respect, kindness, and authenticity are the core ingredients of what beautiful is.  I want to photograph any and every woman who can understand and relate with me on the kind of beauty that I speak of.  Photographing them is the best way I can express that.

Glamour sessions are beauty sessions for women who prefer an option without wearing sexy lingerie.  Boudoir is more edgy and has a more sexy, risque appeal, but it’s also quite a bold act to make for yourself.  That’s why I love what the genre stands for.  Why not seize the moment and embrace yourself as  you are right now?  Be brave!  Be courageous!   The truth is it’s scary to put yourself out there and see yourself in such a bold way.  One day you’re going to look back and see those crazy, sexy, gorgeous pictures of yourself and say, “Wow, I was one sexy B****!!”

For more information on my Boudoir and Glamour sessions or just go for it and book a session, please email me,  I would be happy to go over the details about my sessions.

To all of my clients, friends, and family, thank you for supporting me and being a part of my journey.   I hope you understand my decision and that you continue to stay by my side as I continue to do big awesome things for my little business.
