it's what comes from the heart

"Read a good book lately? Have you ever thought what makes your favorite author such a great writer? Do you wonder what kind of pen they use? Of course not! Nor does a good camera "take good pictures". Although I recently upgraded to the newest, best camera on the market, it's still just a box that captures light, nothing else. People always ask about my lighting technique. Sure there are lots of technical things I can teach, but I feel that it still comes down to something personal. I think that with all artists, what's in your heart comes out in your work. I daydream about crazy ideas like a bride in a field of tulips, a couple in a waterfall, and babies in cute situations"

This was actually a quote taken from another photographer, but it is how I feel exactly...

So thankful...

Today I photographed the Children's Cancer Assoication annual luncheon at the Mac club. There was an inspirational girl that had no arms past her elbows and no legs beyond her knees, yet she was a dancer. She was amazingly inspirational and when I took a photograph of her and her Mom, she commented that she liked my shoes. I cried the entire way home from the event.... It totally touched me and put my life into perspective.

today at the studio I tried out a new set on Reagan, she was not so sure about the teddy bears, we might have to try again when she is sitting up a little better...

Pooches on the green

This weekend I had a booth at a little dog event in Beaverton called Pooches on the green. People came with their dogs and their were booths with vendors that were dog related. I was there with my friend and employee Jenny (she does dog paintings). We laughed at all of the people that looked like their dogs. I think later this spring we are going to have a dog look a like contest. It would be a hoot!

PPO Convention

This last weekend I attended the PPO Convention here in Portland, Its always so inspiring to hear the speakers, see other photographers and be around all that creative energy! I came away with lots of new ideas for the studio and I also recieved my A.F.P award at the banquet!

Happy birthday baby!

Is there anything more precious and innocent than your child devouring birthday cake with delight, completely unfazed by the sticky mess in their hair, face and clothes? Bring your little one in for birthday pictures at the studio and we will capture all the joys and expressions that come along with "letting them eat cake" on their birthday!
