Sneak Peek - Tori and Danny Engaged!

The rain cannot stop the love that these two have for one another; it rained and was cold, but they were troopers!


Sneak Peek - D.C.

I had a wonderful day and adventure with this little guy on Thursday. It was so much fun!

I love the way the texture of the bricks is reflected in the overall texture.
Long Exposure was used to create this fun image.

Sneak Peek - Welcome Home With the Milla Family

Nothing makes me smile more than seeing families reunite after a deployment. Today I had the great pleasure of spending time with the Milla family as they reunited with Dad.

Waiting for Dad to come home. They all made great signs!

I absolutely loved this picture! Such a beautiful and happy Family!

Making Eyes "Pop"

I have noticed a trend in portrait photography over the past few years of making eyes "pop" or sharper than what an original photo depicts. I decided to learn this technique since I recently took some great photos of C.M. and his eyes are a gorgeous green that deserve to shine.

I watched this video to learn one method of applying this technique to photos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LIJFmIT9oM

Before

After
 

What I love is that the color of his eyes are now more vibrant and you can see the subtle variations in color. This will be a technique that I will be applying to shots like this in the future, they just look great!
