Note to self: When picking a location for a session, always make sure to pick one that does not have a concert taking place at it. I arrived at the location a few minutes late due to rush hour traffic to find a huge line of cars trying to park and a security guy directing […]

As you might know, my sister Jordanne is also a photographer, and though we might have separate businesses, we’re far from each other’s competition – she shoots predominantly weddings and I shoot predominantly seniors. This puts us in the advantageous situation to meet new people and get new clients as referrals (I send the wedding […]
