Wildlife Photography Woes

Learning to Take it Mile by Mile I don’t know about you, but I certainly have my “depths of despair” moments (cue Anne of Green Gables here for the dramatics) in wildlife photography. It seems that every first day of a trip I am certain I will NEVER find another creature again, and I certainly…

Lara & Aaron’s Courthouse Wedding

What an honor to capture Lara and Aaron on their wedding day! They had a beautiful June morning for their nuptials at the courthouse. I spent an hour with just the two of them, finding fun spots around the square. We discovered beautiful archways, stairs, and doors to pose in and used Downtown Lafayette as…

Spring Theater-Inspired Shoot with Olivia

Spring shoots are the best, and I was honored to spend some time last week with Olivia for her senior session! Olivia has spent some time in Civic Theater productions, so we designed her photo shoot with its murals in mind, along with Downtown Lafayette’s  lampposts, theater lights, art, and alleys.  When I say Olivia…
