I've been working hard lately on numerous things. One of them being some stock images and ideas I had. I was shooting macro work last week, here are some of those images:

I'll have some dog portraits and wedding shots up in about 2 weeks. Oh and baby photos!
Check out the website at www.freelance4hire.com and book a family shoot or a shoot for yourself. Father's Day is around the corner--it would be fun to do a boudoir shoot as a gift!

Models, cars, and the fair

I recently took two models to the fair for a photo shoot of each individually and some of them together to expand their portfolio.

Nae Mena is on the left, Ciara is on the right. The girls worked really well together.

Ciara by herself. (Nae Mena was featuered in an earlier blog.) If you have a shoot with me, you might find Ciara helping out, she is not only a fantastic and gorgeous model (BEAUTIFUL green eyes) but she is also a great assistant for me.
Managed to find an awesome Mustang that nearly matched her dress.

Other than that, I've been extremely busy with weddings, working on the greeting cards and stock photos as well as some volunteer work.
More photos soon!

Greeting cards!

I have been working really hard lately to put out my own line of greeting cards featuring a lot of my favorite photos and stuff I just find cute.

One of the more popular style greeting cards right now are cards for the bride and groom to ask "will you be my bridesmaid," "will you walk me down the aisle" and the like. So I have quite a few of those and also some nice cutesy cards as well.

Currently there are about 50 listed, but there should be at least 100 more by the end of the week.

It was a nice day outside. Planted the remaining fruit trees that we bought two months ago. In a year or two we should have a yard filled will fruit, I'm so looking forward to that!

Cecil Field is having an air show this weekend, hubby has been watching the planes turn around over our property. He loves the big jets.

Our house is full of baby chicks and eggs about to hatch, you'd think it was Spring. : >

Rented two new lenses today to try out and see which ones I want to buy to add to my aresenal. I also ordered a new camera.

I've been working really hard on a line of greeting cards that carry my name. I'll officially announce it in a couple of days, but that's kind of neat.

Need to get ready for a birthday party and then I have a wedding to shoot tommorow.

ARE YOU ENGAGED? Free pictures!

(Photo above is a photo from a wedding last year, but it gives you an idea of what I'm talking about.)

I rented a specialty lense to see if I wanted to buy it. I have it through Thursday. It is ideal for detailed ring shots.

So if you are engaged and would like to get a beautiful shot of your engagement ring to show off to all your friends, let me know.

The session is free and will last aprx. 5 minutes. I will photograph the ring in studio with a color background or prop. Feel free to bring your own fun props (cookies, candy, small toys, etc.) as well.

This is available Mon-Wed of this coming week by appointment only! So email me a time that is good for you and I'll let you know if I can fit you in.

Remember this is a limited availability and it is FREE! I will provide you with an online image like the one above to use online or by email to show off to your friends.

So schedule your free ring session and also a free consultation to get the low down on our wedding prices!

Karma's Model Shoot

I met Nae Mena-j aka Karma on ModelMayhem.com and we got together to do a modeling session. These are some of her photos.

We did a cowgirl look and found some great backdrops for it.

We also found some old cars out front of the Clay County fair that provided a nice backdrop.

I found these silos last month and I finally got to put them to good use. This is a color infrared image. Infrared has a habit of blowing out whites, but I love the colors on the leaves, like cherry blossoms.

I'll post more photos soon of Karma.
