Life happens at lightning speed.  Have you been intentional about making memories with your loved ones?  Because, let's face it. They're not going to remember the stuff you got them so much as the things you did with them.  The photos you have hanging on the wall, or displayed in albums -- those will be the images that bring forth the wellsprings of their memories.

If you want weekly blog updates via email so you can have help being intentional about making memories, just type your email address in the box on my sidebar.

Maybe you're here because you want photos to display in your home.  Great!  To learn more about scheduling a portrait session for yourself, your family, or your children, please contact me or call 734-424-0472.  

Creatively yours,

Motorcycle Racing Painting

posted in: Fine Art | 0

It’s interesting to see how motion is captured — whether in a photograph, or through other media.  I had fun creating this painting of a racing motorcycle (based on a photograph by Steve Sewell).  Brush strokes, whether “in real life” or digital, convey motion, impart a sense of speed.  This “quick draw” painting was completed in about an hour, give or take.  I had fun playing around … Read More

What Kind of Camera Should You Get?

posted in: Parenting | 0

The inevitable question that is asked of me, as a photographer, is this: “I’m looking at getting a new camera, what kind should I get?” I have to break it to you. There is no simple answer. Sure, I could tell you to go for the biggest and the best.  Or the most expensive.  But what good will that really do you? Instead, my usual reply … Read More

Professional Portrait – Woman

posted in: Notes | 0

When it comes to convincing you of the value of what we do, there’s no better way than to simply pair an image with words.  Words, that is, from the client.  Because their testimonials cut to the heart of it all, and mean more than any words we could assemble. I so appreciate what you have done.  You did a great job with taking the photo; you were professional … Read More

Horse + Rider Painting (from Photograph)

posted in: Fine Art | 2

As I mentioned in an earlier post (Finding Time For Yourself), this year I’ve been trying to incorporate art into my daily routine.  For the most part, this has been in my sketchbook, with pen and paper.  But today, I took some time to experiment with digital painting.  This painting is based on a photograph taken by Bhakti Iyata (source: Pixabay.com).  I had a lot of fun painting … Read More

It’s always nice to be able to plan a family photo session for someplace outdoors.  And if you can choose a location that is meaningful for your family, so much the better!  For a golfing family, there is no place better for family pictures than at the golf course.  So we did their family picture at Barton … Read More

Newborn Baby Photos in Studio

posted in: Notes | 0

Sometimes with a new baby in the family it can be tough to get out of the house.  But one of the first excursions, in our biased opinion, should be for newborn pictures! If you are looking for those adorable sleeping baby photos, it is best to plan this session for the first week or two of baby’s life.  Because as we all know, babies sleep a … Read More

Why do extended generation family photos matter? Because they document your family, they preserve a glimpse into a moment, and they are a joy to display. It may seem like a lot of work to plan an extended family photo session, but it’s worth it. Your children will thank you one day too.
