on our front door and I opened it while holding a spastic puppy who couldn’t wait to meet this new friend! As I tried to contain Bokeh, Michael was vacuuming quickly before heading to the office and I’m sure Steph thought “This is a mad house!”.  She literally walked into a world of chaos!! After Bokeh calmed down we got settled in my office and got down to business! 3 hours flies by when you’re having fun and talking all things photography!! Some have asked about coaching sessions and what they entail.  The great thing about these sessions is that YOU decide what we talk about.

It’s different for every photographer and so I don’t come with a prepared presentation or a set list of items to cover, I ask the photographers to do that part. When they arrive with a list of their questions, we roll through those first and then we spend some time at the computer. It’s a fun day but I really can’t believe how FAST our time goes by!!


After the morning session we left the house and met Sara for lunch. These two are just the greatest. Seriously, I think photographers are some of the sweetest people on the planet! We got to know each other and then we headed to our shoot!! Steph and Sara had emailed before their coaching day and they had become inbox buddies! So when their date arrived, they already felt like they knew one another somewhat!  It was a wonderful day of meeting new friends, taking some beautiful headshots and growing together!! Enjoy a few of my favorites!

We practice shooting mid-day… which is tough! But it’s a GREAT time to talk about managing light!

Sara you’re so cute!!

Steph is such a pro! ps. I wouldn’t mind having their necklaces:)

So gorgeous!!
