Alana Nichols | portraits

I had the honor of spending the afternoon with Paralympian Alana Nichols this past Saturday.    Our goal was to capture some unique portraits of her with her 6 (yeah, that’s right, six!) medals.  And then she modeled for me with some new glam lighting I’ve been dying to try…

She is a beautiful woman inside and out.  Thank you Alana for this amazing experience!

Underwater Camera

I feel so lucky to have found my passion and to be able to make it my career.  I have the best clients who let me be artistic with their portraits and let me experiment with new ideas during their sessions.  About a week ago the idea of underwater portraits sparked inside my brain.  I did a little research on underwater cameras and decided I’d start with a nice, little, basic point-n-shoot model by Nikon.  Last Friday (the day after my camera arrived) my partner-in-crime/photography Ryan took me to his favorite swimming hole and we played around with this awesome new toy.

The playfulness and joy during our time with the underwater camera at the pool has stayed with me over this weekend…so much fun!
