I am a photographer or am I?

June 05, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Lately, I have been finding myself saying "I am a photographer" often to describe what I do.

August 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
I am super crazy about head pieces. I love how they look in shoots. Feather ones are great but really elaborate ones are even better.

I always seek to have my clients thrilled with their images so I assume they are telling me they don't like them. I have been trying to get the answers as to how or why th...
