• I love capturing that moment.
    That moment when fleeting light attaches itself to an object in a magical way.
    That moment when surprise turns to tears or smiles turn to laughter.
    That moment when you feel you have the world in the palm of your hand.
    That moment when you realize you don’t.
    That moment when you delight in your youthful
    spirit no matter what age you are.

  • It might be a moment I’ve intently planned and
    choreographed or one that I stumble upon as it
    unfolds in front of me. It can be when I am surrounded
    by a world of people or when I am alone with my
    thoughts and wandering camera in hand. I love seeing
    those moments through my lens and hearing the shutter click.

    In that moment I know I have captured something wonderful.

  • LET’S GET SOCIAL!

Business head shots need to be appropriate to your industry but should still show your personality. When you are new to a company and need to match the color and look of the current personnel page, there are plenty of ways to do that. For Katie’s company, there was a mix of both studio and natural light head shots of her colleagues but all were created with cool to medium background tones. We were able to capture some natural light images with a medium background color to allow her to fit in with her colleagues’ images and we also created a couple head shots with a bold red background that is a company color. This will provide her with options to use different images for her company profile page and her business social media accounts. I love how they turned out.

It’s always fun to photograph itty-bitty babies. And even more so when you know the family well and can share in the joy of their new addition. I photographed baby Henry’s older brother Augie as a newborn a couple of years ago when they added a fourth boy to the mix. Sadly, I had to watch them move away. But then I very happily welcomed them back to The Woodlands with a new little sister, Miss Gemma, in tow and with baby #6 on the way.

It’s definitely a case of “I don’t know how they do it!” when I hang out with them: five boys and one girl and somehow sanity still prevails at their house. Bernadette, being the creative soul that she is, had wonderful ideas for the session and I’m always game to help achieve a client’s vision.

While Henry didn’t want to cooperate with us for some of them (“Gosh, for a newborn he really loves being naked outdoors!”,  said no one ever), he really was a perfect little sleepy model to let us capture so many precious images. I look forward to seeing this little guy grow up with the rest of the clan–but not too fast! There may not be a #7 for this family so we’ll have to enjoy all his sweet baby-ness while we can.

Are you tired of using stock photos in your business marketing? You are not alone and I can certainly help. I receive many calls from business owners needing a way for them to stand out from the crowd. One such client was Reger Vein & Skin Specialists, located here in The Woodlands Texas. They were looking to capture not only images of an actual client, but also wanting to print a large scale marketing piece. They were looking to promote some of their treatments on a banner showcasing the un-retouched results from one of their clients. The final banner was printed life-size and displayed in their office foyer.

Your business needs may be very different. My aim is to provide custom solutions for all my commercial clients. I would love to help you promote and grow your business.

Delivered the final corporate video to ZT Motors. Their project included full video production services. I worked closely with them to realize their concept and objectives; including script editing, location scouting, production, and final editing.

Just in case your stocking wasn’t stuffed quite enough, I saw this cool little gadget that might help you bring in the new year without the remnants of holiday treats or family road trip odor stinking up your car. It doesn’t have a fun and catchy name, but the car plug-in air purifier promises quite a bit for it’s small package. “Its built-in ionizer will boost your vehicle’s air quality, zapping foul odors and filtering out irritating allergens like dust and pollen and it produces no fragrance while cleaning the air.”

While I do enjoy pretending to be on a tropical island with my current car air-freshener, sometimes the smell of pineapple or ocean breeze just can’t outdo the aroma of preteen children. This gadget may have to compete with your phone charger for the car outlet, but if you don’t have to smell feet or the lingering aroma of your last takeout run, it’s worth it.

I saw a couple other cool gadgets that made the digg’s top ten list for 2016. More things to spend that holiday cash on. Enjoy!
