Standout Competition Pieces | Reno, NV Baby and Children Photographer

Posted on February 22, 2011

Every once in a while, I like to jazz up my photos more than usual to practice some new editing skills and to try to score some accolade points from fellow professional photographers.  In the process, I spend hours going through my whole archive of photos to find the ones that, in my opinion, more accurately represent what I am all about as a photographer:  fun, classic, and heartwarming.  Here are three of my favorite children’s portraits from the past year.  The wedding/family/engagement/seniors categories are going to have to wait for the next time I get some “extra” time in my hands 😉





Snowmelt | Reno, NV Photographer

Posted on February 22, 2011

After a couple of weeks of Spring-like weather, we were greeted once again by snow.  There is a blanket of white outside my house right now, and everywhere I look, I see Christmas card scenes!  Just for fun, I went out to my backyard and practiced some good old fashioned “still-life” photography.  It is truly amazing how much beauty there is in the simple little things, like melting icicles.





Galena Senior Portraits – Sneak Peek | Reno, NV High School Senior Photographer

Posted on February 22, 2011

I am getting the hang of Senior Portrait Photography!  High school seniors are the easiest subjects to photograph – they are in that stage of life where the world is their oyster and they are coming into their own as far as style, personality, and character.  They pretty much own the session, and I am just the lucky person who gets to press the shutter.  Super cool!





Dave and Lacey’s Engagement – Sneak Peek! | Reno, NV Engagement and Wedding Photographer

Posted on February 22, 2011

I am super excited that Dave and Lacey asked me to be their wedding photographer.  They are the cutest couple ever!!!  I mean, seriously, I had a hard time narrowing down their “teasers” to just a few, because it was difficult to take a bad photo of them.  Looking forward to photographing their wedding this summer!!!  🙂





Brother and Sister | Reno, NV Baby and Children Photographer

Posted on February 22, 2011

I love new babies!  They are so delicate and pure and easy to photograph (especially when they are asleep).  I had the rare privilege of photographing this brand new set of twins lately, and although they were challenging at first (yep, I got pooped, peed, and puked on all in one session, twice!), they gave me some really cute poses only a twosome can pull off.  Don’t worry, everything’s been laundered since then, and all we have left are these beautiful shots. 🙂
