This week, I really wanted to honor my boyfriend Clint. Even though I’ve made thousands of photos of him during the years we’ve been together, he just had to be my model for this week’s theme “Man”. I’m very lucky to call him my partner in life, my best friend, and the person I call home. He is extremely kind, loyal, and even though he can be very irritating at times, he is the one … Continue readingMan

At almost 4 weeks old, I was super impressed to see how calm she was. Those big eyes, so innocent and observing, were following me the whole time we were shooting. It made me think … Continue readingCurious
There is a shade of red for every woman.” For this shoot, I immediately thought of my gorgeous friend Eunise, a feisty, charming woman, to be my model for the color Red. There was no doubt in my mind that she could pull off representing my meaning of “Red” and she surely delivered! There is strength in “Red”, a popping color that can embody all kinds of strong feelings like power, passion, love, sexuality, danger, … Continue readingRed
