We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

The Updated Website

  • New Look for the New Year!

I’m really loving that I’m not super busy right now. I mean, I wake up and have a full list of things to accomplish each day but I’m not overwhelmed and constantly feeling behind! I have felt “behind” since I started my business back in 2008. I was in college, I was living on 4-5 hours of sleep and I was trying to live two different lifestyles. At night, or should I say morning (2-5am), I was a business woman. From 9am-2am I was a normal college student. If I wasn’t falling behind in school work, I was falling behind with the business. My life was insanely busy and I didn’t even explain all of my other responsibilities during my time at CNU!

  • Chris | Head shots

making movies since he was little.  I remember getting together with Michael’s family for Thanksgiving and hearing about Christopher’s next movie and thinking “What?! This kid is making movies?!”.  Chris is Michael’s cousin and is currently attending USC.  He’s super talented not only in film making but he is also an incredible painter as well! When he asked about getting some head shots done I knew this was going to be easy. He’s got “the look”… “the look” that I will never be able to master… the “serious face”.  So in about 30 mins we shoot about 650 images and we probably could have used just about all of them!

A Katelyn James Photography Workshop

  • The Sugar Shoot

something else has taken over Wedding Wednesday!  I was going to post something for WW but I just couldn’t wait to announce the “Sugar Shoot Workshop”!!!!! This is an amazing opportunity for photographers that is coming up in MARCH!! I’m so excited I could dance right here in my office! (it doesn’t help that I’ve been nibbling on the candy and have a TON of sugar in my system! I’m a little high-strung today! ) So today I am officially announcing my sugary, sweet workshop that will be happening in exactly 2 months! I have the most incredible people helping me with this! I can’t thank THE SWEET SPOT enough for this
