These pictures were taken in my in-home studio.  It's really fun to see the excitement of families and couples when you can give them great pictures to enjoy.   Norman 2400 lights, with umbrellas are my primary strobes.

Here's the studio
A few test shots with family, helping to make sure all's working well.  It's fun to play around in your own studio.

I enjoy the freedom to explore new points of view and different approaches to a portrait

A happy couple always makes for great pictures!  There are so many fun and creative poses you can use to help couples find that images of themselves they want to portray, and just how they are feeling about each other.
