Below are the pages from a 20 page 8″x8″ maternity/newborn photo album. I shot both the pregnancy and the newborn baby and the resulting book is going to be an awesome culmination of the mothers style and attitude, my interpretation of that style, and the baby’s newborn-ness! It’s a totally unique piece that will be passed on to Sydney when she’s older.
I love McIntire…a gorgeous bernese mountain dog. I shot him as a puppy and every year since… He is such a gentle lovable dog but also has a mind of his own and does what he wants. He is no longer an only child as he was when I first shot him. He has gained two brothers who adore him but he is still #1 and knows it….
Here he is as a puppy…just a few weeks old in my studio
and climbing into things he shouldn’t climb into…

I love to show the before and after of photo shoots to give real examples and applications. In this case I was photographing a doctor who has ONE really quick opportunity to win over new patients with her online physican profile. If her photo does not represent her well and gives off a less than stellar vibe in the potential patient, there is a big chance that patient is going to skip by her. She has about a 3 second window for someone to decide (by looking at her photo) if they want her to be their doctor. This is a big deal if you ask me. We all know we probably shouldn’t use photos to pick our doctor but how many of us do just that?
Below is the photo she was using before doing the photo shoot with me and after it are two new possibilites. This is the actual physician finder page….
I think its an awesome example of the power of photography to accentuate your true self. The first BEFORE photo was a bit generic and cold feeling for me. The results after our shoot are really warm and inviting. Your start to get a sense of how dynamic, warm and generous she is. Here are a few more shots from our session:
