Project 52 – Week 3 | Shadows

This week’s theme of “Shadows” was a little more challenging to embrace than last week’s “joy” them. Typically, I find myself doing what I can to avoid shadows. They can be distracting and sometimes very unflattering, so I adjust my subject’s pose or adjust the lighting or change locations or stand on my head to create the most flattering portrait. On the other hand, if […]

We Are Family | Rockwall Photographer

  I was truly honored when this family asked me to capture their family portraits, in part, because they are dear friends, and in part, because one of them is a very talented photographer. I’ve always believed that it is a great privilege to have a family trust me to photograph their portraits, and I do my best to create a relaxed and fun session […]

Project 52 – Week 2 | Joy

I’m really excited to be participating in Project 52 this year with some fellow pet photographers because it will help me achieve 2 of my goals for 2014 – 1) blog more and 2) stretch my creativity. I’m a little late to the party, since they started with introductions last week, but they have very graciously let me join in the first photo theme of […]

Scooter & Snickers | Rockwall Pet Photographer

I love getting to do sessions at my client’s homes. Its an all around more relaxed feeling of just hanging out with friends. The pets are more relaxed in their familiar surroundings and in turn the owners are more relaxed. If your pet gets anxious in the car or is easily distracted in a new environment, then your home is the best choice for a […]

Aprea Family Portraits | Rockwall Photographer

I just adore the Aprea Family. I worked with Nikki for 6 years, and loved every minute of it. She’s such a great encourager and hard worker. We’ve also become good friends outside of work through our love for food. Several years ago, we had a little dinner group going called Club Fed. We’d get together every month and cook around a theme (e.g. pumpkin, greek, green, […]

Camden & Asbury | Rockwall Pet Photographer

If you’ve ever met an English Bull Terrier in person you’ve probably noticed that they don’t exactly look like your typical dog. They’re famous for their egg-shaped head, that makes children and adults alike giggle and wonder how they got dogs to look like that. If you’re lucky enough to get to spend some time with one, you’ll get to experience their head-strong stubbornness (after […]

Gunner, Molly, & Jose | Rockwall Pet Photographer

So, how do you like the new look of the website? I hope its easier to navigate, and I think its prettier, too. As I was selecting pictures to display in the galleries, I came across this trio. Flipping through the images brought back memories from when I was just starting out in Pet Photography, and I couldn’t help but smile as I looked through […]

Weis Family Portraits – Rockwall Pet Photographer

I met this sweet family through my day job at a veterinary clinic. I got the opportunity to get to know DeeAnn a little better through agility training when my dog, Hazel, was a pup. Both DeeAnn & Jeff have an incredible heart for rescues – as you can tell from their herd! They invest a lot of their time and energy to train up […]
