Finding Your Style

  • My Evolution of B&W

recently hit the place in my business where I can look back on my images from this time LAST year and still like them.  Isn’t that STRANGE? I’m so so picky. You have no idea. I’m picky about my style, my post processing, the images I choose to blog…… I think “obsessive” would be a good way to describe it. I desperately want “my style” to be consistent. I want my editing to also be consistent. One area of editing that has really changed for me are my BLACK and WHITE images. It’s taken me forever to really figure out what I love!! For the longest time, I had a sepia tone to my B&W shots.  It wasn’t over the top

  • Ben + Mary | Everyday

these two?! They were married last May, right before our graduation from CNU! Then, after only being married a few months, they left for TANZANIA!! Crazy!! They have been living there and working with Young Life and doing amazing things for the Lord. They were gone 11 months and just returned home for a visit. Because they were getting married while Mary was trying to finish college, there wasn’t much time for an engagement session and so they contacted me a few weeks ago to see if they could do their e-session now!!
