I have a hard time teasing apart artistic photography
and portrait photography. I want my portraits to look like art.
I’m more interested in capturing the essence of my subjects than a
posed mug shot.

Sammi & Patrick

Do you remember Ian? Well I got to do his little sister's prom picttures this afternoon.  She and her date, Patrick, are so cute together! 
This is one of the couples they went with.  Sammi's mom had these over-sized playing cards and I had to do a little 'Vegas in the backyard' shoot!
Sammi is a very beautiful young woman and she takes such good pictures, it's really hard to not to post all of them!

Williams family

This group of children were fun to shoot.  They are so friendly and they willingly sat for quite a few photos.  We did devide the shoot up though and got the boys' portraits done a couple weeks later.

One thing I've learned is that kids need something to play with if I want to get their real joyful personality shining through.

Mom's photos

I was able to take my mom's pictures on our visit to TN this past week. She's a country girl at heart and I think this was captured very well!
We were able to have fun with her horse, Grayzer...
and her dog, Koda.
