30% Off!

  • Early Black Friday Album Sale

time of the year! SALES are everywhere!! Black friday is just around the corner and the Christmas shopping will commence at 5am for some people… the crazy people! haha I’ve only been out at 5am ONCE and I don’t recall it being a pleasant experience. Sure, we got a great deal but as I get older, I’m realizing that there has to be something AMAZING on sale in order for me to get up at 3am and stand in lines until 6am! There aren’t many products that I would do that for. However, if someone was to sell one of those new iMac’s for 50% off… I would stand in line for days! I’m loving them!!

  • Coaching

love something… you like talking about it. That’s just the way it goes. Why do I show everyone pictures of my dog when chances are, they’ve already seen him… because I LOVE him!! So when it comes to photography and answering questions, I’m in my element. Now, this doesn’t mean I want to discuss aperture settings and backlighting while I’m sitting at the dinner table… but when I do have a chance to talk business with other photographers, it’s fun for me! The BEST type of photography conversation is one that allows me to help newer photographers grow.

A Responsibility Rant

  • Oh to be a dog...

a dog. This is going to sound absolutely pathetic but I envy Bokeh some days. How amazing would it be to only have to worry about chasing squirrels and burying chew toys in the couch cushions?  How awesome would it be to never have any responsibility other than to be yourself and be cute?!  Bokeh wakes up, snuggles, goes out to pee and then his long day of napping, playing and eating begins. What a life!!!  I think it’s safe to say that when you constantly envy the pace of life that your dog enjoys, maybe it’s time for a BREAK! I just finished the last wedding of the season on Saturday, took a quick trip to California for 3 days and tomorrow
