What a wonderful time we had with Michelle B in Jacksonville, FL for her graduation portraits - She had a few ideas for her portraits and we delivered her vision! 

We started at her home, and brought the studio to her for easy access [ this is what we do!] and then headed out with her mother who came along for the fun, while we photographed her in the downtown area. Isn't Jacksonville's skyline beautiful??

Michelle, a student who is graduating and receiving her medical degree in May -

Her family could not be more excited, Michel...

Why A Professional Photographer?

Hi!  So happy to have you here... 

I just wanted to start by saying that in today's world everyone has access to a digital camera, that can take beautiful images at any moment with a touch of a button with its automatic settings. Let's face it, almost everyone has one, this is the world we live in!   So, you may ask: "Why not just have a friend or family member take my photographs?" 

"Photography is an art; one that requires experience and practice" and in order to achieve wort...

While looking at my feed in my smartphone, as many of us do occupy with the technology which surround us, I came a cross an image posted by a fellow photographer Brian Joseph Calabrese This may be a truly beat on subject for those of us who own a professional photography business with a 'Print Your Images" and not a 'Shoot & Burn' mentality or model.  For some a great educational read and perhaps, not such joy for others.



But, in all truth.... I know that my clients already know my reasons for NOT shooting and placing all i...

A little something to get you started...


Perhaps a bit long... But, this e-mail evoked the stimulation of emotions such as "New Year’s Resolutions"

It has become a tradition that sometimes I like to hold on to, here are a few pieces for everyone to appreciate. I try to every year select out a few things to work on and keep that list in my Tiffany Blue Book by my bedside. 

2014 has finally come to an end and I recently looked at my little book and I did pretty well with my 2014 goals {Both business wise and personal} 

Oh, now... Thi...

I admire Mike Allebach - And Yes, with his blessin this has been re-blogged

Ding – the email sounds an alert of an incoming message on your client’s computer. A ransom note appears warning 7 days to upgrade their gallery – or else. For less than $30 they can save their photo gallery from expiring. A short few weeks with all those cute pixels but now a strange company has taken them hostage and is demanding money. Pay up or these photos are taking a ride to the river in a beat up Cadill...

A path: roads, they may take you, perhaps where you don't want to go, but you will make it and choices will lead you where you need to be!


One year ago I took a leap of faith along with my husband to a place that had nothing to offer to me or the growth for my business; however, made the best possible. 


We were faced with the challenge of empty promises, that lead to many other situations... And instead of dwelling on that we pushed forward...


This is a short story of courage, to never give up and never stop believing in the forces...

Why hire a Professional Photographer?

While reading my daily usual fare of articles - I cannot help, but to emphasize on the incredible importance of various points while considering hiring a 'photographer" for a special day such as a wedding venue or a session such as your child's birthday or family pictures....

Susan Wilson, is one amazing woman and photographer and in her writings- she really reveals the love for what she is inspired for.  An amazing writer - here are a few excerpts and my thoughts combined!...

Many beginners to using strobes have the same questions:
- How do I hook the strobes up to my camera?
- What changes do I need to make on my camera to get it to work?
- Where do I put the strobes to get the best picture?

In this post, we aim to answer these questions in order to provide you with a great starting place for your own photographs.

Hooking Up the Strobes

With most strobe units, there are three different ways to trigger the flash: sync cords, other flashes, or wireless triggers.

Sync cords are t...
