Denise was the Clinton campaign organizer for my area in the run-up to the Nevada Democratic Caucus. After the caucus, Denise did not head out to another state as many of the other organizers did, but stayed in Nevada and is about to file to run for Sparks City Council. We did her headshot session on Saturday.


Headshot session: Kim!

Kim is a wonderful woman who specializes in intercultural understanding. She has been conducting diversity and cross-cultural workshops and classes at the university level for the past 10 years, and is in the process of updating her web site and branching out into other endeavors.

We had a wonderful session, and she is thrilled with the results.

Chasing the Light: A guest room and a small tract house window

The bed barely fits in the 10′ x 10′ bedroom and the 40″ high by 60″ wide window that starts 40″ from the floor faces east.  The sun competes with the neighbor’s house and 30-year-old neighborhood trees. You work with what you have.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

My contribution to this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo challenge.

For me, as a photographer, there is nothing more rewarding than having a client swear to me that she never takes a good picture, that no photo ever looks like her, and then have her fall in love with what we create together.


Model Shoot: Natalie

Yours truly is getting a two-page spread in a local magazine (more on that when it is published). The concept involved three models, and one of them asked for a few shots by herself after the shoot. I was happy to oblige.
