Nikon camera and lenses for capturing the magic, and Lightroom

50% of the total cost

 

Q: What should I wear for portrait sessions?

Great question! Mix it up a bit - plaids and solids, stripes and solids,
plaids and stripes and solids. Pinterest has some great ideas. Whatever you do,
please don't all wear the same thing. It takes away from the
photojournalistic style.

Yup yup, I split my time almost evenly between design and photography.

Q: How did you end up in photography? 

I took a black & white film class in high school, and loved it. The dark room
was magical. Then I went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in design at the
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.  So you can say art, design, and
photography have always been a part of my life. 

 

Q: What's your beverage of choice?

So sweet of you to ask - soy chai latte, please. Unless of course we are talking
adult beverages, then I'm going with Matilda beer or any red wine.
