Cooper’s Rock, WV

For this year’s birthday celebration, I wanted to get out of the city and get into the woods. Juan, my husband, and I have always loved to rock climb – well, i love it, he’s obsessed with it – and hike. So we headed out to West Virginia with a friend to explore, shoot and hike around. Although we were in the woods with…

Ringing in the Holiday’s

The beauty of the holidays…(besides the obvious) is that I have time to work on some creative and no-pressure projects (i.e. no one is paying me or taking a once in a lifetime step – so i don’t have to worry about screwing it up!). Today I brought over two gorgeous friends of mine, Beth and Erin, and set em loose in front of…

Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

A few last shots from our recent stay on Lake Atitlan. The light was terrible, gray and flat all week long – so I lit these flowers with a gelled SB 800. I was amazed at how gentle i could get the light to dance on the delicate petals.

Last Day on the West Coast

Having just returned from Seattle and our amazing trip out west, I’m here in DC attempting to get caught up. The work that we did on the west coast was so enlightening and exciting for my future work – i can’t wait to apply the new skills to my next shoots. Here are a number of images from Cary Park in Seattle, a city…

Cape Kiwanda

We are approaching the end of our trip and had a great time the last few days at Cape Kiwanda, Oregon. Here is a shot of Dad shooting on the beach across from our hotel in the early morning light. And a few shots of him using the SB 800 and magical twilight just over the border into Washington a few hours ago. Freezing…

We had a spectacular day today – each of these images was taken on the path from the Eagle Caves overlooking the Columbia River George, all the way through Portland, Oregon to the Pacific Coast. No special lighting today, just spectacular, beautiful landscapes at sunrise and sunset.

Early Morning Shoot on the Lake

this morning we awoke for the sunrise… which does wonders for your hair….if you want to look like Janis Joplin.In any case, I have an early post. Perhaps more later on this evening. We had this gorgeous Idaho lake, Coere d’Alene to shoot: but of course were quickly bored by natural beauty (been there, done that) and moved on to lighting things up. We…

coeurd’alene

Welcome to Idaho! We traveled from butte to this georgeous lake in Idaho today. Cloudy and flat light saved us, preventing us from stopping and shooting at every turn, and allowing us to get a bit closer to the coast. Tomorrow we should make it to Spokane, with a early morning rise to shoot Coeur d’Alene Lake, here in Idaho. A few pretty sights…

Bozeman to Butte, an all day trip.

Those of you who have been to Montana and know that Bozeman to Butte is something like 44 miles. With scene after scene like this gorgeous side light illuminating these horses, we didn’t make it very far very fast. Dad and I left Bozeman this morning, headed to the Oregon coast. About 10 miles out of town, the sky opened up as it has…
