Giant Diffusion Wall

Earlier this month I headed over to our FAVORITE dentist’s office to do some holiday team photos for them.  We’ve been going to Hilton Dental for quite a while and just LOVE how well they take care of us! 

Their office has this really cool translucent wall of glass bricks separating two of the work stations.  So I decided to put it to use.  For the first shot, I placed two SB-800 strobes with blue gels behind the wall to give me a friendly blue glow to contrast with their red Santa hats.  Then I took the gels off the flashes and increased the power so they would give me a giant wall of soft diffused light as my main light source for the shot with Dr. Hilton in the dentist’s chair.  I photographed everything using the Nikon D3 and 24-70mm f2.8 with an SB-900 on-camera in Commander Mode.  The two SB-800s were triggered with my trusty RadioPoppers. 

Even though I always carry plenty of umbrellas, soft boxes, and other light modifiers…sometimes it’s better to work with what you have in the environment around you!

Matt & Brittany do some Modeling

Every now and then I get to work with a really AMAZING couple that really “clicks” with my personality and fun style of photography.  Matt & Brittany are just such a couple!  They’re just dating.  But Matt knew Brittany LOVED the camera.  So for Christmas he secretly got her a fun portrait session with me.  As it turns out, the camera LOVED her back…and him too.  Aren’t they just stunning together?!?  I mean these guys could be doing some serious modeling!  Matt is in the Navy and Brittany is in medical school.  We really had a lot of fun walking around town…and got lucky with a dramatic sunset to end our session with.

Costello Family Christmas

I owe a huge thanks to my good friend and amazing photographer, Alice Keeney, for recommending me to the Costello’s.  Like my family, they are spread out all over the country.  So it’s very rare that everyone is together.  This Christmas, that actually happened!  In addition, Sophie and Brian are engaged!  (Alice is photographing their Big Day.)  So what better way to preserve their time together, than with a fun family portrait session at their home…with a few engagement photos added on for good measure.  J

Grace & John at the Fench Huguenot Church

Grace & John are the most AMAZING couple you could ever hope to meet.  Last weekend, my good friend and fellow “Speedlighting Guru”, Robbin Knight, joined me to cover their beautiful wedding.  Here are a few of my favorites from their Big Day.  Visit to check out the fun Music Video.  Then head over to to see the rest of their Online Gallery.  Enjoy!
