Amariah ~ senior

Amariah is without a hint of hesitation BEAUTIFUL, she shines from the inside out. It was a pleasure photographing her senior session. Amariah's eyes captivate an audience of many, her prom dress would stop traffic and Amariah's personality is of pure delight. This makes a recipe for a perfect photo session. Thank you Diane (Mom), Khan (little~BIG brother) and Amariah for the wonderful memories and the family you are. Enjoy. xo

Adult Enrichment Camp: August 2011

This was my second year instructing a digital photography class at the University Wisconsin-Green Bay, Adult Enrichment Camp. Our final day we composed and practiced self portraits. I asked them to become anyone, anything. Inside their comfort zone or a bit beyond. I'm sharing a few of the images we set up. These four individuals were very inspiring to engage with and I thank each and everyone of them for sharing their time with me. Enjoy!!

Michael K.~ senior

Michael's sports montage turned out spectacular! Creating this was pure artistic pleasure. It took some time to bring together the final piece; including the details and layers made with various brushes, opacities, and pressure points. I found it to be a mind boggling joyful process.

Michael's session was all game. Before heading to the football field and basketball court at Preble High School we got some wonderful formal shots at his home. However, when Michael put on that basketball uniform he was definitely in his comfort zone. I found a quote that relates to all people. "Some people want it to happen, some wish it to happen, others make it happen." ~ michael jordan

Best wishes on making your future happen!

Tressa ~ senior session

Tressa was a pleasure to photograph. Her presence is a true miracle. Tressa was in a serious automobile accident in May of this year. Looking at these photographs one would never guess she was thrown from her vehicle or that she had to retrain herself to walk again. Tressa is an amazing girl with an important message to share. "Wear your seat belt!" With the love and support of her family Tressa will conquer anything and has a very bright future in front of her. Tressa keep your strength and keep that woderful smile!

Jackson Paul

Babies are always refreshing to photograph and Jackson was quite the trooper for his parents and the camera. He did an amazing job for his new born session. In between a few diaper changes and feedings he opened his eyes and fell sound asleep. Everything a photographer could ask for. Did I mention his adorable nose? This was also a perk to this session. Thanks Jackson!
