Yep!… it’s BASEBALL season again.

These T-ball players are so cute. It amazes me how these little tiny humans pick up so fast on major-league attributes!

They are so exciting to watch… but the cool part is, they never strike out!

They get to swing until they hit, run until the coach says stop, and drinks at the end for everybody… oh… and snacks too!

Mini-Sessions… One Week Only!

Young people today seem to think of printed portraits the same way they do    relationships and family. “Oh, they’ll be there tomorrow”… or “I have enough pictures on my phone…” Wait until the phone gets dropped in the water, or lost… then where’s all your memories? In the toilet… Literally!

Some say, “I can take just as good of a picture than my friend’s mother, and she’s a professional photographer!” The fact is… she’s right… about taking a comparable picture, because that mother has a $600 camera and absolutely no photographic training!

I don’t want to rant… but I am so tired of these people who buy an expensive camera (if you call $600 expensive) and then label themselves a professional photographer! They shoot their crappy pictures and undersell the professionals, then when they do a wedding, because they think they’re pretty good photographers, and the images are too dark, or blurry… they try to find a professional to fix them for them!


When the cake is gone… and the gifts wear out… all you have left is your wedding photography! Don’t trust it to a novice! Hire a real professional photographer! Get referrals from people who have had them do a wedding… not just because they took good pictures once. Everybody has a good day, but a beginner photographer is a bad day waiting for a place to happen. Don’t let it be your wedding day they destroy.

Knowledge of posing and lighting is just as important…        no… more important than an expensive camera.

311B4347-36BF-4D74-8358-225B2796C6A8.jpegSo many times I have heard, “My grandma’s friend’s brother is a photographer, he’s going to take my senior pictures.”

More often than not, grandma’s friends brother has no photographic training whatsoever, has an entry level camera, and does not understand the first thing about lighting, as well.


Watching a photography video on YouTube, no more makes you a photographer, than watching a video about Bob Villa’s home improvement makes you a building contractor. Think about that for a second, and let that sink in.

Buying an upscale tablesaw does not make you an expert Carpenter.

The tool, does not define the craftsman!  Training and experience makes the craftsman, and those are expensive. The trained carpenter or builder does not do his work for free, or at a discounted price, and neither does the professional photographer.

Training is not acquired by trial and error, nor does it come in the box the camera comes in.

I wish there was a place that I could compile all of the people who have come to me and asked me to try to fix an inexperienced photographer’s work. Senior portraits can be reshot, but wedding photography cannot be.

If you’re going to have portraits made and pay for them, hire a professional …so you don’t have to do them over again!
