Do What Scares You!

It’s always so important to push ourselves every so often. Do something unpredictable…something fun and new! The more we get out of our comfort zones and explore the world, our lives, our interests, the better off and more happy we will be. Why not try something you didn’t think you could do or something that scares you?

How about a photo shoot? Everyone has their own unique beauty and can become a top model in their personal photo shoot. You may choose whatever style you like. Boudoir, glamour, pin-up, fine art nude or even portrait. Whichever style you choose, we will bring your dream and vision to life. You will definitely have fun and also possible do something that may have scared you in the past. Just do it! You will feel a sense of life and living in the moment and perhaps a sense of living on the ‘wild side’!!!

Go ahead…live a little and book your personal photo shoot today!

So much to talk about

First of all, I have been teaching constantly.  And I have schedule a lot of photography classes and workshops.  So now is the time to learn all my tricks.

I played around with water for a bunch of boudoir photographs.  Be sure to check them out.  Next summer I will be doing this again.

And maternity and newborn photography is always popular.  I love it when my maternity clients return for their newborn photos.  It lets me enjoy a bit of that special time in their life.

Last minute updates

My photography workshops and classes are becoming very popular.   I have been teaching at least one class a week and have had private lessons in between.

The holiday season is a prime season for boudoir photography, which is why I have been lacking in my blog updates.  Lots of men will be getting a very special present this year.

So much to tell

The big news is that I was part of a reality show this week.  I can’t reveal anything until it airs, sometime in December.

Pregnancy was the them as I have been very busy with some amazing future moms creating maternity portraits.    I love it when they bring in some new ideas.  Just when I think I’ve seen it all, they surprise me.

I was published again.  This time in a national fashion magazine called Eliza.  I did an underwater fashion shoot featuring retro swimwear.

Some interesting boudoir photo sessions also added to my schedule.   Their custom books are going to arrive any day.

I also taught a lot of photography classes recently, including studio lighting workshop and fine art nude photography workshop.

Pin-up was the big theme this week

This week it seems I was the Phoenix Pin-up Photographer of choice.  And it was a blast.

You never know where a shoot will take you with pin-up.  Seems like there is always a new prop or idea popping into my head to create something new.

I have another Introduction to Photography Class coming up soon.  Great way to learn how to get the most out of your camera.

I have some special Maternity Photography shoots coming up soon.  These are going to be fun.  Come back soon to see the results.

Maternity, Boudoir, Headshots and Models

I photographed a lit bit of everything this week, which makes for a fun week.  As usual I got calls for headshots that were needed right away.  I usually can squeeze a session in same day if the client is flexible on time.

Several boudoir photography clients came in to create that special gift for the man in their lives.  One was a bride to be who wanted a bridal boudoir session to create a grooms gift.  Another was celebrating an anniversary.  And one was just about to turn 40 and wanted to get the photos done to celebrate.  It made for an amazing week.

Maternity photographs were also in high demand this week.  One of the lucky moms was going to have twins.  I’m looking forward to her return for her newborn photo session.

A new model came in to get some new photos for her portfolio.  She was just a beginner but was great fun to work with.

Things are settling down

Several students came to the studio for private photography lessons.    A few were repeat students coming in to take more advance classes.  I love teaching photography to enthusiasts.

Maternity photography was another busy area.   Some very excited moms to be came in to capture their pregnancy bellies.  Even some of the siblings got in on the act.
