Loan Collection!!!

Wow, Wow, Wow! I just got word that 2 of my prints were accepted in Professional Photographers of America's International print competition. One was chosen for the prestigious "Traveling Loan Collection", which is basically the highest honor that can be bestowed to a print through PPA. And my other print was accepted for the Showcase Book. Both are incredibly tough accomplishments, and this was my first time entering PPA's Int'l print competition, so I am truly elated to have done so well. This is really a big deal in my world. Thank you PPA!

Jenny & Al expecting

Here are a few from my session with Jenny & Al's maternity session. I had the good fortune of shooting their wedding last year and they will bringing in their baby girl Alana in next week for a session. I am really looking forward to meeting little Alana, and it is so wonderful to have the opportunity to document these special moments in people's lives.

"The Urban Edge" session

Here are a few images from an "Urban Edge" senior session I did with Amanda. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for being such a great model Amanda!

Back to da blog!

Well, it's been about 4 months since I posted anything..mainly because I've been so busy..but also because I didn't think anyone actually read this stuff! I have had a few people comment on the blog so I am back to posting! Ok, since my last post, I have have had the good fortune of winning a couple of more awards! First, in April, I won "Best in Show" at CPPA's print competition with my print titled "Sophie's Smile" (below). Then, I won "Best in Show" again in June with my print titled "Midnight Rendevous". Totally unbelievable... and these 2 wins puts me a very strong position to win "Photographer of the Year" again this year...which would be very awesome.
In other news, the new studio is open for business and I am plannning to have a Grand Opening party so that everyone can come on down to check it out. I have been having fun doing some high school seniors, babies, maternity, etc. and will post some images from those sessions for you to check out. So stay tuned!
