Abigayle and Reeve's Proposal and Family Shoot | Las Vegas Portrait Photography


I was absolutely thrilled to a part of Reeve's plan to propose to his long time girlfriend Abigayle. He bought her a gift certificate for a family photography session and gave it to her for Valentine's Day. Abigayle had been wanting to to some family portraits for a while and was super excited as we planned their shoot together. We came up with a Pinterest what to wear board and she did a great job of keeping me in the loop when shopping. The efforts yielded perfectly coordinated outfits for the whole family.

As Abigayle had envisioned something with a country flair, and a Scottish festival had taken over the park we had originally planned to shoot at, we headed out to Nelson, Nevada for their shoot. It worked out perfectly for their rustic session. We got some great family shots and once everyone was comfortable in front of the camera I took some couple's portraits which gave Reeve the opportunity to drop on one knee and propose Abigayle. I love her surprised and shocked look. Reeve said he had to ask a few times as she was in so much shock she forgot to answer. Abigayle was so excited she kept running up to everyone to tell them she just got proposed to and to show them the ring, it was so cute! Needless to say she was on cloud 9 the rest of the session.

After we got accomplished what we came for Abigayle had planned a fun paint war to end the session with. The kids especially had fun running around squirting pain on each other but I think it's obvious to see fun was had by everyone.

It's so awesome to be apart of and to document such a genuine and important moment in someone's life. I can't wait to deliver their canvas, storyboard, prints and images to them today as their first official family heirlooms. Thanks guys and enjoy your custom photography!

How Do You Dream of Being Photographed?


How Do You Dream of Being Photographed?

For some there may be an immediate answer to that question, for others they may draw a blank and still some may feel a moment of unease or panic at that thought of having someone create a portrait of them. Something I've found that I really enjoy is making women feel beautiful by creating a portrait of them that they love. The complete model for a day portrait experience includes a wardrobe style session, professional hair and makeup to make you feel pampered and to bring out your natural beauty by boosting your confidence, a 90 minute portrait session and an in person reveal session. Often times we as women take care of everyone else and put ourselves last. I don't have kids, just fur babies, but I know that it's a rarity if I step in front of the camera. Like many of you I am my own worst critic. In a way that's a good thing as it means I'm always striving to improve myself. On the other hand it means I tend look into the mirror and see only flaws. Next week I'm stepping in front of the camera myself to get a new headshot and a beautiful portrait of me that some day I hope to look back on and say I am proud of the strong beautiful and authentic person I came to be in my mid 30's.

To introduce you to my real women portrait project I want you to meet my dear friend Lisa. She is a fellow photographer, awesome wife and mom of two handsome little boys. To say she has her hands full is an understatement. Her husband was recently offered a job in Florida and they will be moving to the Emerald Coast. I asked her to come over to experience my model for a day shoot complete with professional hair and makeup. Let's be honest when was the last time you had your hair and makeup done professionally? I bet may of you may say your wedding or your son or daughter's wedding. I was so excited Lisa agreed to step in front of my camera to create a beautiful portrait of her. I hope she says wow is that really me? Yes! You are gorgeous. 

Every woman should have a portrait that makes them feel beautiful, sexy and confident. How do you dream of being photographed? Lets chat about your dream portrait session.

Alejandra and Mike | Las Vegas Engagement Session


I've enjoyed getting to know both Alex and Mike over the last few years. They are a super cute couple who share a love of kraft beer and French bulldogs. After dating for several years, Mike planned a surprise proposal by pulling Alex up on the stage at the place were they first spoke. I was thrilled when they asked me to shoot their wedding. Alex chose the Springs Preserve in Las Vegas, Nevada for their engagement session. I'm looking forward to their March wedding at Angel Park. Here are a few of my favorite images from their engagement session.
