It's important to have a good assistant and boy have I lucked out with this one. Not only is he extremely helpful with making beautiful images happen, but he also happens to be the love of my life. We are coming up on being together for three years and being married for five months, but shortly before those he has a birthday!
This post contains images I've taken of his handsome face during a couple jobs together.
Babe, you bring such a light to my life and work. I'm so thankful to have you in my life. Happy Birthday Week!
Enjoy the cuteness. (He's all mine.)
Keep an eye out on social media for highlights from our first wedding shoot of the year!
I've been a little under the weather and am resting up so I can be good as new for our first wedding job of the year!
This past weekend, I acquired a remote shutter trigger and decided to take a self portrait. Not usually being on that side of the camera and being a little out of my comfort zone, I thought long and hard about where to shoot and what to wear.
Now, what would you do if you had a nice camera, tripod, shutter trigger, free time, and a brightly colored unicorn onesie? (Yes, I have a unicorn onesie. It was a very comfy halloween costume.)
I hope you would take silly self portraits in a field with some comical balloons, because that is exactly what I did.
It was a beautiful day, so my location of choice was flooded with hikers. People questioned, pointed, laughed, and took cell phone pictures of me. A few chatted and observed me struggling in the ocasional gusts of wind, so I requested jokes in exchange for their entertainment. One man's response was, "Are we living one?"
It was an enjoyable afternoon.
The message I have in mind for this shoot is, "Just be yourself", whatever that means to you, whatever other people may think. Have fun, don't take yourself too seriousely, and love yourself. You are rare and magical!
Have a wonderful week and comment where you want to see The Unicorn next!
Wrapping up the first week of 2018 by looking back on a wonderful visit I had with my big brother and his family. They live a little farther north than me, so there was beautiful, fluffy snow for us to play in. Since it was December when we visited, we also made lots of gingerbread houses! They were delicious. Here are some photos of the fun we had. Be sure to have fun and make some beautiful memories this year! See you next week!
Disclaimer: This week's blog entry contains images that are more edgy than the family portraits I usually post. If you do not wish to see fake blood/scar makeup and a villainous situation, carry on and have a lovely day.
It gives me great pleasure to start the year off by presenting this shoot. As I enjoy diversifying my portfolio, I've always taken a great interest in cosplay photography and love presenting characters in a suitable environment. If you're at all familiar with the game Outlast, you know an abandoned church, in northern Oregon, on a chilling winter evening was the perfect environment.
I teamed up with the amazing cosplay duo, Jack and Marco. The two do fantastic work on their own and colaborate like a dream. Marco portrayed Waylon Park and Jack portrayed Eddie Gluskin, who "ruthlessly pursued" Waylon.
