Environmental portraits are my favorite! They are shot in the subject’s usual environment, such as a workplace. My client, Stephanie, is a personal development coach. She hired me to make some action shots of her at work for her new website.


The Lensbaby Composer is a creative effects SLR lens. This lens lets you experience a whole new level of creative freedom in camera. I had never used it for portraiture before and I am quite pleased with the first results of the few snapshots I took of my friend’s daughter. Definitely a look that will be popular among younger subjects. Who doesn’t love the dreamy look it helps create? I would recommend using in addition to your favorite portrait lens to offer your clients something a bit different…

I had a lot of fun working with designer May Ellen Gardiner this week! She hired me to photograph a space she designed a few months ago. The highlight of this new lower level is definitely the bar area. After the interior shoot she took advantage of my Spring promotion and received a complimentary portrait session to update her profile picture on her website and all the different social media sites she subscribes to. Here are some of my favorite pictures from that shoot…

I recently did an interior photo shoot for designer Marianne Buckmann, owner of CocoBello, LLC. The newly reomodelled space included a gigantic walk-in closet, a master bedroom and bathroom as well as a beautiful entry way into the bedroom. I also did a series of environmental portraits for Marianne.

Photographing a space with dark woodwork, walls and window treatments as well as a variety of light fixtures and color temperatures can be a balancing act. The pictures need to reflect the feel of the space by being true to the ambient light.

Here are some of my favorite shots!

Having portraits done of your children should not be a chore. During an outdoor lifestyle portrait session, held at your favorite park or in the comfort of your own backyard, children are encouraged to play and be themselves. They soon forget the presence of the camera while I am able to capture those fleeting moments that best reveal their true personalities. Visit my website and email me for additional information or to book a session. I look forward to preserving the precious moments in your children’s life.
