Bronze Portraits

As a professional photographer, I believe it is my obligation to continually improve my techniques for lighting and posing. I spent most of 2017 creating a new direction for my studio…personal branding for professionals (both men and women) and delivering a magazine style photo shoot for women. Recently, I entered 3 images in an international competition where the judges are all well known professional photographers…my first time to enter a competition at this level. And my photographs were awarded Bronze! My goal is to continue creating work that will fare even better in competitions and, more importantly, provide my clients with the best images they’ve ever seen of themselves.

Please allow me to introduce to you the women who were simply fabulous in front of my lens:

Caitlin – ballerina from a young age through college. I absolutely love her intensity in this image, and her quiet confidence in her pose.

Teleah – An empowered young woman. This image, I think, illustrates her strong sense of self and hints at her sense of humor.

Teleah - Confidence

Tatsiana – Models and has been featured in a music video. She lives her life with intention, and this image certainly gives the impression that she knows what she wants.

Tatsiana - Strength


The next competition is later this summer, and I will be entering again.
