    Garden Setting Engagement Session

    Yep, another one at Hudson Gardens. My clients just really love the location. It was part family session too as she has a son from her previous marriage and I wanted to make sure we included him. She was very grateful for that. 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.)

    Engagement Session at Red Rocks in Colorado

    This couple was so cute. She's 5'5" and he's 6'6" It was a REALLY bright and sunny day and I tried to do mostly shade shots, but I'm trying to expand my talent and get used to shooting more in direct sun so you'll see a bit of that as well. (I still don't like it as much as the shade shots...

    Help with Recent Wedding...

    I'm hoping some of your seasoned wedding pros can offer me some advice! I had a wedding in April that took place at a ranch. I know that reception halls are notorious for having really bad lighting but this one was the worst for me yet. The ceiling was way to high for me to bounce my flash and...

    The First Wedding of '08 (for me)

    So, I've had some weddings where it just felt so pat and uninspired and unoriginal. But this wedding made me fall in love all over again with doing them. Now I just need to learn to get even faster at my PP. Mark and Amy were a fun couple and I think we got some good shots even though it was...

    6 month olds are my favorite:)

    They sit up by themselves (for the most part) and can't crawl around and go anywhere yet. Plus they are usually pretty smiley at this age. 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.)

    My first Senior of the Year

    This is my boyfriend's brother. For some reason he really wanted to get snow in his senior photos so we did these kind of early. (He's still a junior). I'm going to try and get him to be my senior rep though, so I think it's ok that we did them a bit early. We can always do a few more when it's...

    I know, I know, another pricing question...

    I just got contacted by a financial advising firm and they need some pictures for the brochure they are making. They said they need shots of them interacting with clients and a shot of the financial advisor outside of the office, but mainly just want some candid shots, mainly with this one...

    Another Engagement Session

    These two are getting married in Washington and are moving to Ohio soon after, but I had the pleasure of getting their engagement pics done here in Colorado in the city where they met. (They met while attending CU Boulder). We started off at the Pearl Street Mall and ended at Chautauqua Park...

    Suicide Girls?

    Has anyone ever shot for them before? I had a gal contact me saying she was trying to find a photographer to do her set for the Suicide girls. Well, they already have a person in Denver that they refer girls to but I guess she doesn't like that photographer. In any case, I contacted them to...

    Another new brochure!

    I have a school auction coming up and in addition to an 11x17" framed photo, business cards, and my flyer for the Childrens Photo Contest I have every year I decided to make a brochure with more examples of my photos as well as some information about my studio and what we have to offer. I didn't...

    Back Up Wedding Photographer

    How do you guys find this person? What sort of agreement do you have in place? It seems to me that you'd almost have to find someone who doesn't normally do weddings because how could they guarantee that they wouldn't be booked themselves? Do you just rely on a network of people and pray...

    My First Session of the Year

    Some engagment shots for my boyfriend's sister. CC is appreciated! 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.) This one's my favorite:) 5.) I've seen this shot a lot lately and thought I'd try it. But, I think I like other ring shots better... 6.)

    Can we discuss Wedding Client Meetings?

    I have had a couple already this year and although I felt like I did on ok job of trying to sell myself, I think I can do better. I have a couple more coming up. I think I'm feeling a bit discouraged because the couple I met with tonight decided not to go with me because they felt that two...

    Photographing a Wedding for Free?

    My boyfriend's sister just got engaged. They are planning to wed sometime this August or September. I had already suggested that we do a fake engagement session for my portfolio (They are a cute couple and I wanted to try out some ideas I have) and then we decided to wait because her bf hinted...

    Custom Computer?

    Does anyone have a custom computer that they use specifically for their photo editing? I've been using my laptop for the past couple of years, but I hear that it's much better to use a desktop and a good monitor since it's faster and the color calibration will be easier/better. Plus my laptop...

    Tears...

    Those of your who do Children's Photography, what are your thoughts on giving a proof of a child crying? I generally try to only give happy photos because I've found that most parents are pretty obsessed with having a big ol' smile in their children's photographs, but I just had to include this...
