Flases of Hope 2016

Some images from my last volunteer day for Flashes Of Hope.

I don't think I need to write a lot in this post, I'm posting because this Sunday is Mother's Day and my heart goes out to all the mothers trying to do their best for their children, and all that encompasses. But especially those fighting cancer and other illnesses.

Is it time to update your profile image, it can be as relaxed or as formal as needed.

Maybe you want one of both, or something fun, got you cover whatever way you want to go.

Here are some recent shoots.







$150 give us about a half hour to work together to get you two images

$300 gives us a lot more time, about one and a half hours to do a verity of images, and/or more creative images. We can go to multiple locations and change clothes (you, not me) and six final digital images are included. Additional files can be purchased.

family holiday cards

The Autumn season was a whirlwind of photo shoots. Conferences, headshots, school portraits, marketing material and of course family photos for the end of year holiday card and gifts. Thank you to the families that return year after year, and the new people checking me out. 

We kept it very simple this year, left the concepts and props and presets and filters behind and pretty much went for simplicity. Not always easy to get family photos to look 'simple'. Bad light, cold weather, 4 kids at once are just a few things we had to work with on some of these, but we had fun and made the most of it all and got a lot of natural personality shinning through. 


The new year kicked in with lots of annual report photos followed this week with my first newborn of 2016.
