Fine Art Film Photography | Sam Luna

I recently spent some time with Sam Luna, creating portraits together at the University of Wisconsin Arboretum. Sam is a Madison area aesthetician and makeup artist. I knew that I wanted to create only film portraits with Sam because of the incredible way film showcases color, texture and light. I love how Sam’s vibrant makeup is […]

Film Photography | Porcupine Mountains, Michigan

Last month, we had the pleasure of traveling to the upper peninsula of Michigan for a family wedding. We went up a day early so that we could have some time to enjoy the local scenery and checked into a lakefront hotel with a gorgeous backyard view of Lake Superior and the Porkies! The next […]

Business Woman Portraits | Carrie Headley

Carrie contacted me to talk about creating Business Professional Portraits that she can use for her website and social media profiles. For these type of portraits, I like to think “outside the box” and get away from the old fashioned head shots. Carrie’s portraits are an important part of her website and we wanted them to show her caring personality and realistic fitness approach.
