Salem Portrait Photographer | Yes, I am addicted to hats.

Just a quick glance through my portfolio gives away my obsession wit hats! 

I also love hair accessories and textures. 

I was so excited when my friend, Laura, showed up for our session with 
both a hat and a great feathered headband. In addition to the great 
head pieces, she chose a fabulous outfit with layers 
(something I always tell my clients to wear), texture, and creativity!


Salem Portrait Photographer | What to Wear.

Whether you're casual or dressy, dressing in layers and adding accessories always make an outfit look more polished and makes for a better portrait. 

This look from polyvore.com is pink, pink, pink!
Choosing a bold color like this is ideal for this time of year since 
most of the outdoor scenery is brown and dead. Mixing a bold color with neutrals, like denim and black, is the perfect way to add color without going overboard. Jackets are a great way to add layers, as well 
as hide any trouble areas you may have. 


Salem Wedding Photographer | Not your typical backyard wedding!

Not only was it a same sex wedding (yay!), but it was a gorgeous couple from New York! On top of that, they had one high class backyard wedding! 

 Seriously, how gorgeous are these guys?!

Here are all of the girls in the wedding party...Yeah, can we say stunning?!


Gladstone Senior Portrait Photographer | Blake, class of 2012

Blake is one cool guy and I had a great time photographing him!
His parents and girlfriend are awesome too! 

Blake's mom actually came up with this shot. 
He's in a band and she wanted an artsy shot that represented such.

Blake was such a good sport, jumping over and over until we got the shot. 

Look at those eyes!

This is one of my all time favorite shots. I posted it as a sneak peek, but love it so much that I'm including it again.
