Hi Beautiful one

When you look at an image what do you notice? How does it make you feel? Do you remember what made you smile like that? Aren't you glad you spent the time? Don't you feel beautiful? Welcome. Look around. Imagine how an image can capture laughter, confidence, love, emotion. What would your image look like?

Bea-YOU-tiful lady

It is hard to believe how beautiful my friends are... but this is really a real person... can you believe how pretty she is. She is a mother to three boys, lives in the county, can hunt a deer, skin a deer, can the deer, photographer herself doing it and then scrapbook it! She is amazing! And on top of all of the amazing things she does... she is beautiful on the inside and out!

Natural Beauty

It is amazing to start a Cherry Bloom session and just watch it take shape. It always starts with lots of nerves and in the end we peel the nerves off and reveal the most amazing thing... how naturally beautiful you are. I love photographing women who want to look beautiful for their husbands, but what I find is in the end these images are more for them then they ever intended. Women feel so empowered and confident. They look at themselves almost as it it was the first time they have seen a mirror. They are in awe how wonderful they look but even more so they look upon themselves so proud that they didn't let fear stop them from seeing their natural beauty.

Going back in the past to go forward

I am so excited about moving into a new chapter of photography. Documenting you and your emotions as a women is so exciting. Women have so many roles we rarely take the time to focus on us and the emotional relationships that matter most. This is from a session this summer. A beautiful women showing her confidence, her vulnerability, and her love and passion for her husband. The cherry blossom session is about being beautiful. Seeing yourself through the eyes of your loved ones.  
I recently did a shoot and my client kept saying, "your camera is so good... it makes me so good..." etc. You get the idea... she didn't believe that my camera just took the image of what was in front of it. Now while I do think my camera is very sexy... it doesn't make a women beautiful. The client was beautiful, sexy, and confident... her pictures are wonderful and beautiful, but only because she made them that way.
