I've been moving away from portrait photography & concentrating more on my real passion, landscapes & fine art. I will be working on my website and setting up links to purchase my work through Fine Art America. It's going to take awhile, but am excited for how it will look when I'm done. I will still do portraits, events & weddings upon request, but will not be advertising for them.

It was very cold on Saturday - but well worth seeing this graduation and being a part of documenting the day. There were some very proud family members present - and maybe some "crying" :-) Congrats again Dre & family.
Had a blast with this wonderful family. Two very active and adorable girls.
Been behind on my blogs...again... but had to share some of Sierra's Senior pics.. Fall version.
This was my 4th visit to the Aspen Motherlode Volleyball Tournament. The Brothers Bomgren won the men's open for the 2nd year in a row. They have grown a lot since last year.
This show was a few weeks ago. I learned a valuable lesson - back my work up at least once a day, not once a week, as unfortunately lost some of my shots due to a power surge. These are some of my favorites that I managed to salvage.
I started shooting Landscapes when I moved to Aspen, many years ago. After moving to Hawaii, I took up black & white portrait photography. I still love to capture the beauty of nature as well as the essence of each person that I shoot.
Photography is my life and passion. I hope that the beauty captured in my nature fine art images will bring joy and inspiration to others. When working with clients to capture their special "life events", my goal is to capture the essence of each person, place or event and frame it with the perfect spacing, background and after effects that create the complete piece of art. I guarantee my work and use only top professional printers so that the art work you receive will have the best color quality which will be guaranteed for many years to come. I meet with clients before each session so they can let me know what they expect of their session & final product. These photos speak for me and portray my love and deep appreciation for the art of photography. "
