I can’t stop shaking. My stomach has tied itself into a painful knot. I just did the second most scary thing ever – second only to giving birth.  What did I just do?  I was the subject of a boudoir photo shoot.   A friend said to me recently, “How can you ask women to […]

I can’t tell you how often I have had this conversation. An older stranger, usually a grandmotherly type, will come up to me, comment on how adorable my kids are, then warn me: “They grow up in the blink of an eye.”  (Or something to that effect.) It’s easy to get caught up in the […]

Are you a camera-dodger?   First, let me say this: I am the mom who dodges cameras and dreads viewing pictures of myself. I have kids, and the purpose of my life seems to be to make their lives as close to perfect as possible.  I find that I am always my last priority (well, […]

Birthday parties for young kids are some of my favorite jobs.  I can’t count the number of times I giggled while shooting this most recent birthday party… it was nearly constant.  These kids were so full of joy!  It is fabulous work being a fly on the wall for events like these.  I will say […]

Pumpkin Raisin (Paleo) Muffins

Posted on

I made these muffins for a brunch I attended recently and they came out so well I figured I’d better share the recipe.  The only flour in this recipe is coconut flour, and only 1/2 cup of it.  Sound too good to be true?  Try it for yourself – you won’t be disappointed! These are […]

Christmas Portraits at Home

Posted on

For a photographer, doing Christmas portraits for families is much easier in a studio setting.  The lights and setting are controlled and planned in advance, which allows the photographer to focus solely on getting everybody posed nicely and smiling. I have always enjoyed a challenge. Call me strange, I love doing portraits in people’s homes.  […]
