Contemporary Portrait Photography Encompasses My Lifetime of Experiences

Fashion Design

I started sewing when I was 12 and never stopped. I love the design of clothing and I know how to flatter all body shapes and sizes. I can design and sew pieces from scratch or maximize the potential of existing pieces by making a few flattering alterations.

Hair & Make-up

My five sisters and I grew up performing in a family wild west show and always had long, fun hairstyles. My Mom was a beautician and I loved creating shapes, styles and attitudes with hair design and make-up.

Control of Light

Photography is simply a capture of light in front of the camera. I utilize natural sun-light and artificial light to create the lighting scheme which best captures the desired image.

Principles of Design

Working as an art director for almost 25 years I utilize the universal principles of design on a daily basis such as composition, color, value, shape and repetition to create stunning photos for my clients.

Complimentary Body Shapes Guide

My 41-page guide explains the five body shapes and explains how universal design principles can be used to choose what to wear. It includes easy-to-understand sketches, suggested dress styles and sample portraits.
