Meet Robey and Murphy!

Murphy lives in a world that is completly his own! He just seems to be clueless all the time. This expression does a good job of explaining it.

Robey has a completly different personality, best explained in this shot that mom got. Isn't this hillarious? He looks like mom just said "now make a funny face!"

Robey plays football! His owner (Fritz) plays the center and Robey's the quarterback. He catches the football and everything! Its so cool!

But, no matter how different their personalities are, you can tell that these two are brothers.

Aren't animals the greatest? Me and mom had such a fun time shooting these two!
Some Mama-to-be pictures soon!

How do you capture one of the biggest hearts?

Whitney has been one of my best friends since 6th grade so i was absolutly thrilled when she asked us to take her senior pictures! She is so beautiful and photogenic but i loved being able to show the world the whitney that i see! We started at her aunt and uncle's house where we found the porch swing.
Then we went to a barn foundation that her grandfather built. She had the most beautiful blue dress and the rock wall made a PERFECT background... as you can see!
Next on the agenda was her grandmother's house. We played around some but got some good shots of her with the tire swing. She is absolutly gorgeous!

When we were gettting ready to pack up and head home she asked me if we could take a quick picture, not for a senior picture, but for her grandmother. Her grandmother has a G on her house (standing for Glotfelty) and thought it would be a cute idea. Well it turned out awesome!

Check out my mom's blog She will hopefully post some pictures of whit too! More senior pictures coming soon! And also... how the ground hog got in the tree! You won't believe until you see it!!!

How much can one person learn?!

Me and my mom returned a few weeks ago from a photography workshop in San Francisco. We learned as much about ourselves as we did about photography! We learned from the amazing MeRa Koh and Brian, Rick Chapman, and Garrett Burdick! The entire first day was filled with tears... but there were just as many laughs!
I was so inspired by Rick and his work, that i was able to create this beautiful image of this amazing woman! She is 54 years old! Can you believe that?! She has the body of 30 year old. And she is absolutly beautiful! And as you can tell... she is also a very strong person.
Now its time to meet Victor. As i stared around the quiet plane, anxiously waiting for the plane to land, i looked to my right and I saw Victor. Rather than staring out the window, he was staring at his hand. I could only imagine the thoughts going through his head as he patiently waited to be in his wife's arms again. I hesitated, but I let Rick's voice play in the back of my head. "If you see an oppurtunity, ask the person if you can make a picture of them."
Victor traced the lines of his hands, but what struck me was his wedding ring. To me, it symbolized his wife. His kids. His family.

We also recently did two senior portrait sessions. Mor to come on those later!
