I recently flew to Phoenix, Arizona, to attend my first Imaging USA. Imaging USA is the largest annual convention and expo organized by pro photographers, for pro photographers. I traveled light so I didn't take my DSLR camera, but my little Canon G9. I had never seen the mountains of Arizona and was awed by the rugged beauty of the landscape. These images were perfect fits for black and white so I converted my favorites and have included them for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

We found some snowy areas in Kim's yard before the snow melted on this beautiful sunny day in January. We didn't plan to do on any pet portraits but Kim's pet cat wanted to get into the act! I would have added the cat's name but they have so many cats that they aren't named. Kim picked most of the cat portraits as her favorites and I have included them for you to enjoy!

Gabriella and Alyssia were such good sports during their crazy photo session for their Christmas cards. All of the props were planned except for the bean bag photos which the girls had a lot of fun with! I had been wanting to do the last two images for some time and they seems like the perfect subjects. Gabby seemed pretty happy about being taped up as you can see by the last image below. I have included my favorites from these two silly girls' session for your viewing pleasure!

This charming couple from Mississippi wanted to do portraits in the country for Christmas cards and in celebration of their soon coming 25th wedding anniversary. The second portrait below is on the front of their Christmas card which can be viewed on Capturing The Moment's Creative Design tab on our website. Though it was cold, we were able to get several nice poses that they picked from their short session in the country. I have included some of their favorites for you to enjoy!

I saw Kim wearing her red & black outfit at our local church last week and told her mom that her outfit would go beautifully with a background I have set up for a client that I was going to photograph this week. So Saturday we did a short session with her red outfit and a casual outfit that went with the background. I think she looks absolutely lovely in her portraits! Here are Kim's favorites from the session for your viewing pleasure!

Ace was not actually laughing, but it sure looks like he was! I was seated on the ground prepared to take photos of Ace so I could get the pretty blue sky in the background when he started making funny faces at me. He is such a sweetheart! Hopefully you get a good laugh from these images!

This session was probably one of my easiest sessions to date. Janelle was a natural poser. She looks so elegant and lady-like in her portraits. The weather was perfect for water reflections in our pond; however, the sun was still bright, so I had her looking away so she wouldn't squint from the sun. The willow trees at the pond made for a good prop during a back-lit portrait which we converted to black and white. The sun was still bright before the session ended which gave Janelle the chance to wear her sunglasses and pose with a pumpkin against the beautiful Autumn scenery. I have included my favorites from her session for your viewing pleasure....
