Seniors of 2018

I had the pleasure of shooting 27 seniors this past season, and each and every one of them brought something unique to their session.  My goal is always to showcase the personality and talents of each individual client, and this year’s seniors had no shortage of either!  We’ve put together a slideshow of some of the best photos from each senior session this past year.  Our intent with this video is to wish a stylish, personalized congratulations to the grads, as well as shout a big ‘THANK YOU’ to each of you who trusted me with capturing this exciting moment in your life! Just a bit more about each of the talented young men & women showcased in the video above: AINSLEY is a music lover who enjoyed participating in 4-H while in high school.  She plans to attend either ULL or McNeese to study Education, and dreams of someday being an English teacher in Africa. ALAYNA is an avid lover of makeup and shopping.  She plans to attend Louisiana Tech to study Speech Pathology, and dreams of balancing her career as a Speech Therapist with having a family. ASHA enjoys cooking, working out, shopping and sewing.  She majored in […]

Commercial Photography vs Portrait Photography

If you’re looking into photography to promote your business or service, you may be surprised to learn that pricing varies from that of a typical portrait session.  Not everyone understands how the processes differ, and as such, we’ve done our best to explain the fine points for those who will someday be requiring this service. What’s the difference between commercial photography and consumer photography? Consumer photos are taken for the client’s personal use, and individual prints are usually ordered from the photographer taking the photos.  Once consumers have purchased the prints of their choice, those prints will generally come with a print release that allows the consumer to print from their desired vendor, but this takes into consideration that the photos are not intended for mass-reproduction. The copyright to any images taken always remains with the photographer.  Essentially, the package price paid includes a license fee that enables the client to use the art that we create for them.  Being in possession of digital files or proofs does not give the client rights to reproduce them.  This is where the main differences between commercial and consumer photography come into play, because commercial images are specifically intended to be reproduced.

What’s in my bag? Photography Gear & More!

Have you ever wondered what combination of photography gear, beauty products, food/beverages, and music make up the perfect recipe for our unique photos? Today’s your lucky day, my friend! Let’s start with the bag(s): I’ve finally settled in my relationship with bags, and for good reason. These bags are not only stylish, they’re functional, comfortable, and unique. I started with the crossbody, but as my lens collection grew, I found the Isaac Mizrahi camera backpack that fits my DSLR camera, film camera, and five lenses comfortably. It also includes a back compartment that fits a 15″ laptop! Now I use the crossbody for my lighting gear, batteries, accessories, and to hold my personal belongings. Isaac Mizrahi Kathryn Full Size Coated Canvas Camera and Tech Backpack         Crossbody Camera Bag from Shutter Totes           Over the years I’ve accumulated so many items necessary for capturing the perfect images that bags just weren’t cutting it. Last summer I decided to take an ice chest to keep us cool and hydrated on a shoot. The ice chest had wheels, so we stacked my bags on it as we ventured from location to location. Then it hit me: WE […]
