When you are taking pictures have you ever noticed if
you gravitate towards a certain object? For me, I am drawn
to taking pictures by, in or around trees. I just love trees!
I don't know if it's the texture or the color or the uniqueness.
When I was little I remember sitting up in the huge tree in our
front yard for hours. I would read or just watch the people
and cars go by. It was a great day when my father made a
ladder and a platform way up high into the tree.
Look around and see what photo "ops" you can find! If there
is a tree around, you can bet I'm going to get you to snuggle up
to it! This picture is from Jaycee Park in Cape Coral. What
great trees they have there. Check them out!

Downtown Sunset

A couple of weeks ago I was at the Harborside Convention Center
for an event. I took a few minutes to go check out the Downtown
Sunset. (something I've never done).
Have you ever said to yourself, "I
would love to drive to the beach
and watch the Sunset"? But then think,
I don't have the time. Here's a Plan "B".
Take a drive to downtown Fort Myers riverside.
Guess what? There are plenty of parking
spots and it's a lovely sunset. This is also
a beautiful place to have a portrait taken.

Happy Father's Day!

What do you get a photographer for Father's Day? Well, I looked through some pictures of Buddy and our son from the past couple of weeks. I found several pictures that I took during a play day. The black and white photos look really great...and masculine too!

I made a wallet size to keep with him and an 8 x 10 for his dresser. This gift and some Chinese food; success!

Funny Faces!

While the rest of the Brown Family was getting ready for their
family portrait, their eldest daughter and I were able
to take a few extra shots of her posing on a pile of
firewood outside of the house. She was a natural...and very beautiful too!

Farm Family

Today we left our middle class suburbia and traveled a mere
15 miles to the "Brown Family Farm". It felt like we were a
million miles away from our paved streets and a Walgreens on
every corner. Despite a hazy day and the threat of rain,we were
able to get some great family shots. If you haven't
visited the slower paced side of life, take a trip out East....Oh yeah,
pack a lunch, cause you're not going to find a McDonald's close by!

Editor Gets a New Headshot

Our dear friend Annie stopped by the studio to get a
new headshot for her latest gig. We loved
photographing Annie for a couple of reasons. She can
carry on a stimulating conversation and stay extremely
photogenic at the same time! If you would like to check

Downtown Photo Shoot

Austin and I went to Downtown
Fort Myers to put together a
portfolio for him. He had a great
time and had fun posing and
finding just the right shot!
Although I don't think
he can take a bad picture.

We started out at the Suntrust building and made our way to the Embarq building. There
are all sorts of great spots to take pictures downtown. The massive banyan tree and the court house steps are just a few.

I'm so glad that downtown is taking on that "old town" feel. It's a treat for photographer's to take advantage of all of the nooks and crannies available.
This was a new spot to the right that I hadn't seen. Can you guess where it is at? If not, grab a cup of Starbucks coffee and take a stroll.

See you soon!
