Private workshop at beach house with Jim Garner

Hey all! I had asked Jim to do a small workshop for me and my staff. We came up with the idea to have a small private workshop for my staff and photography friends. Most of the spots were taken up yesterday which was the first day I asked anybody. We are still able to have about 2 more people come and share. If you are interested send me an e-mail at Jim is hosting up at his beach house just outside of Seattle. The website is We will be there learning for 3 days, it will include shooting in downtown Seattle with models, lots of photoshop and album design. The cost is $1200 and that includes your accommodations at the beachhouse! I hope to share this experience with a couple of more friends. Email me soon if you are interested.

Zach and Becca's Engagement

So, I got to photograph the rocker guy and his beautiful girlfriend. They were such a cool couple and very easy to work with. I love working with other artist because they are so trusting and just want you to do your thing the way you do it...LOVE THAT! So I am sharing several images from their session with you. Thanks to Zach and Becca for just being themselves and letting me have a great time with them. I will try to find out if Zach's band has a website and I will post it here if they do, so check back for it!

Kristy and Tim

Okay here is my wedding from a couple of weeks ago! Tim and Kristy are the couple I had mentioned that got to go out on the KC Chiefs field. This is a wedding that was just sooo much fun and provided me with all the time I needed to have some serious shoot time with them. Like I said in my earlier post the person in charge at the stadium told me this was a one time thing so just letting everybody know ;-) Oh and at the bottom is a pic that Tim requested be taken with his wedding "team". Hope you enjoy it Tim!

Bambi Cantrell and Jim Garner Workshop

For all of you photographers out there you need to check into this! This workshop is
being held by the one photographer who helped change my career...Bambi Cantrell! Bambi Blew me away several years ago with an incredible education on the art of photography and the business aspect that is so important. She is teaming up with another amazing photographer Jim Garner. Jim is one of my closest friends and someone who has taken his business did a total reinvention. Both of their images have won some of the highest honors in the industry, so needless to say an in depth workshop with these two photographers is going to be a life changing experience for anyone who attends. Go to and send them an e-mail for more information. I promise it will be incredible!

Carmen and Paul

Here is a little sneak peek into Carmen and Paul's day. They did a video slideshow at the wedding of their wedding day images. It was a hit and so much fun for them to get to reflect on everything that happened thoughout the day. Just a note to Paul and Carmen, It was such and honor and so much fun being your photographer. Thank you for everything! Big hugs to you both!

Back up and Back up again!

I'm sorry for not blogging in a while. I have been dealing with a hard drive that has went down on fun! We happen to be crazy around here about backing up our files in more than one location so that is a total blessing. But I just wanted to remind all the photographers out there to have at everything backed up multiple times. I have been counting my blessings that some good friends taught me that a long time ago! So if I can help someone to not loose files I want to. So this is your reminder :-) I promise you will be seeing some blogging this week. I just shot a wedding Saturday and we got to go out on the KC Chiefs field and take pictures! So much fun! But don't bother calling asking to do it because they assured me this was a one time deal. I guess there were some special circumstances that allowed this to happen, I'm just happy I was there
to photograph it! I promise to share :-)

So we took cover on the front porch of an old house close by, here a a few pictures from the session. The last pic you can see chloe is biting her nails just watching the rain.
