Welcome to my blog! This is my first run at creating a blog so hopefully visitors will find this site informative and fun. I am creating this blog as a supplement to my business website (

My goal is to establish a more personal connection with individuals that appreciate my work. Additionally, I don't feel a business website is the most appropriate medium for casual conversation as it relates to my personal pursuits and interests.

In time, my vision is, this blog will feature photography news, tips, critiques, etc. I may not know everything there is to know about photography, but hopefully this blog will create a place where visitors can learn a little about what I love.

I am excited to share the story behind my art.

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule is a theme created by make-up artist Monique "Mo" Branch.  After working with Monique on several themed shoots, we decided to kick things up a notch and go in a different direction.  Not only did we call on our muse, Erika, but we also decided it was time to place Mo in front of the camera.  With that in mind, Mo decided to focus on contrasting skin tones, but added a unique twist that included flakes of gold and bronzer that created subtle golden highlights on her and Erika.

Pen Tablet vs. a Mouse for Photo Editing

For a little over a year I have been using a Wacom Intuous4 pen tablet to edit my images and absolutely love it.  As a digital photographer, I enjoy the entire creative process from the moment I power up my Nikon D90 to the final clicks in my Apple Aperture software and now that I can remove the restrictions of using a traditional mouse, I'm having more fun with my digital work flow.
