Portraits: The Carters

Last time I was on the East Coast visiting my family, I had the chance to photograph the family of an old friend I’ve known since middle school.  She’s all grown up and has a husband two kids now, with a third on the way.  We went to the playground I always went to as […]

Yesterday in the Park

The Other Side of the Camera

So I’ve been off the blog for a few weeks because I went and got married and spent two weeks hanging out in Scandinavia with my brand new husband. I’ll be posting images from some of my recent shoots soon, but in the mean time you can check out the awesome photos from the wedding […]

This past weekend I rented a tilt-shift lens. These lenses are meant for perspective correction in architectural photography, but I was really curious to try one out just to play with focal plane a little. Using a lens like this allows you to have a tiny little slice of a photo in focus: You can […]
