Before and after

I've wanted to illustrate this point before, but I've never taken the time to do it until now.  Oftentimes, people don't realize the impact that editing has on an image unless they see the before and the after together.  The image on the left was SOOC (a.k.a. straight out of camera).  The image on the right has been edited for exposure, tint, color balance, contrast, highlights, facial retouching, as well as, sharpening.  Obviously, there is a significant difference between the impact of the two images.  

As your photographer, I spend a great deal of time making sure that your final images are beautifully edited.  My goal is to create natural, pleasing and well-balanced images that don't look "overly photoshopped".  It's important to me that they have a timeless, natural feel to them.  Hopefully, this helps you see some of the 'behind the scenes' work that takes place before you receive your finished collection of images.  It's the most time-consuming part of my job and I take a great deal of pride in delivering this style of images to you!

Mary - Class of 2015

Graduation is right around the corner and I'm gearing up for the new high school senior season so I thought it would be a good idea to get caught up a *little bit* on posting some of my 2015 grads.  It was a fun season to photograph because many of the seniors that I photographed I had known for many years, and Mary was no exception.  I loved being a part of this special occasion for her and she made my job so easy with that incredible smile!

A beautiful day and a fun, relaxed session ... my favorite kind of session!
Hope your Senior year is a great one, Colton!

Regan - Class of 2015

Regan comes from a family with 3 fabulous girls and I had the good fortune to photograph every single one of those girls senior sessions over the past six years.  Not only that, but they each requested the same location.  They are the only clients I've had that have that unique distinction.  What a pleasure it has been to be a part of their lives in that way!

Isabel - Class of 2015

The upside:  I had an amazing season of high school seniors this year which I loved!
The downside: I didn't have any time left over for blogging any of those amazing senior sessions.
Ah, well. I'd much rather spend my time shooting sessions than blogging them so I'll take that trade-off any day.

Isabel was one of the first to kick off my senior season this year
and she obviously did it with a bang!
