American Heart Association

A couple years ago I was asked if I would do a gallery of survivors who have had heart disease or defects. I volunteered, not really knowing what I was getting into. I expected to see people much older and heavier than I coming through my studio door with a smoke dangling from their lips. I can not tell you how surprised and touched I was as I got to meet our local survivors one by one. They are beautiful strong woman, in great shape, successful and in some cases younger than I. I listened to their stories as created their portrait for the gallery, asking a ton of questions along the way. It was a pretty emotional assignment for me, I marveled at each persons individual strength and drive to fight and to educate. I have 3 kids in my gallery..... as a mother that hits a whole other heart string. I have attended and photographed my third Go Red for Woman luncheon and two Heart Balls. At each and every one I learn more, the statistics are staggering. At some point I will post the gallery, but for now am showing a shot of the local ambassadors that we took for a billboard display.

Family Fun!

Family Fun!

Had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family a couple weeks ago while we had some nice weather. We had a great time hanging out outside the studio while doing a few fun shots inside too. The kids were a blast and real troopers while I drug them around.

Love the choice of outfits, works great color or black and white. The uniform tones allows the true expressions to be seen and the attention stays where it should, on those gorgeous little faces.

A Note to the Parents!!
Parents, time for your homework..... don't send your precious child out in the city or parks with someone who is not a professional! They are ducking into abandoned buildings and changing in the open or their car. Make sure you are sending your child to a studio, they should be able to accept your credit card, and have a private area for your student to change. I see non professionals meeting young gals all the time around town and have come across a few in the middle of a clothing change in public places. Because they have a website does not mean they have a studio, drive by prior to their appointment and make sure you are sending your child to a reputable place.
