    Models Wanted: Military Family

    Hello everyone who reads my blog! I am looking for a military family for a FREE photoshoot. In exchange for signing a full model release, I will trade you a full photoshoot (complete with photo gallery of at least 20 different poses) and 2 free 8x10s of your favorite poses from the shoot. I'm looking for a family that fits the following descriptions:

  • must be a full family with one parent in the military (can be mom or dad) and has military dress for the photoshoot. sorry, I'm looking for families where the parent is not currently serving their tour right now
  • must have at least one child (more is fine as well)
  • child must either be very small baby (newborn would be great!) or at least walking well
  • must be willing to travel to me (although I'm flexible on this condition depending on where you are stationed)

    If you fit these terms, or know someone who does and would love a free photoshoot, please let me know! You can contact me through my website or directly at Thank you and please spread the word.

    and because we can't have a post without pictures:

    2008 Recap and welcome to 2009

    2008 and the madness of my first busy holiday season has come to an end. I've learned a lot about photography, people, running a business, and the follys of dealing with Mother Nature in the last three months. I wanted to give a shout out and a huge THANK YOU to all my clients who have allowed me into their lives to capture their family memories for them. THANK YOU also goes to my wonderful family and friends who have been so supportive in my endeavors and getting my business off the ground.

    I hope that in 2009 my business continues to grow, and I continue to grow as a photographer as well. Please check back for some changes to the blog, and visit my website for its new look and new images in the galleries as well.

    Happy 2009 everyone!

    And to leave you, a little montage storyboard of my boys from the last year.
