Black, White and Red All Over

What does a canvas board, some black and white checkered fabric, and a staple gun get you? The perfect background for little babies! I had my hubby take some shots of me with it too and it really only works vertically. I need to make a bigger one for adults because I prefer landscape or…

Meant To Be

 Don’t you just love it when you feel like something found you versus you seeking something out? Or you trying to do something. Something wonderful happens but it is not dependent upon what you do.

Collectively, I worked for about 20 hours. I am thinking that I shot for at least half of that, perhaps even three-fourths of the…

Adrenaline Rush

This past week has been crazy. I’ve worked like a mad person. I helped a fellow photographer shoot an entire dance studio! Which works out to about 800 dancers.
