Have you ever googled your name?

I have. And this is how I discovered I was featured on WPZOOM as one of 10 inspiring sites using WPZOOM recently.


Wanna See?

My 15 mins of fame. You will have to scroll to the very very very bottom of this article geared for creative professionals, and there I am. Holding down the number 9 spot. Okay, so I might of been chosen as number 9 out of 10 websites, but I am okay with that.

Oh, and yes…WPZOOM’s article author, did call me a “he”. However, I will forgive him/her. Ha. Maybe that means I am a super great professional photographer, since I was referred to as a male photographer instead of a female photographer. #pressforprogress  #unisexnames


redding ca photographer featured on WordPress minimalist website for professional photographers



When I was designing my fashion website, I took a few things into consideration:

  • color theory
  • fast preview of my portfolio
  • minimalist classic design

I purchased the Tempo site created by the inventive Pavel Ciorici. His aesthetic design was exactly what I was looking for. It is exciting to also see my website as a Customer Example on their buy page.


That’s not all.

I was taught how to mirror a site by my husband, my fashion site actually. Trying to be a good little girl and not buy anything new, I found out that Pavel Ciorici’s Tempo website can be used more than one time, so bonus points. And Jesse was the man to help me clone the site, by doing it himself…with me watching.

Excited to announce that in the next few days I will have my commercial photography website up serving Northern California and anywhere a client would like to fly me. Hopeful thinking. Why not?

Speaking of saying something on the interwebs, one day I wish to live, work, play in San Francisco and New York. There…said it.

This image came about via a request from creative, Robin Fator of The Redding Fashion Alliance.  Robin had asked me if I would like to create something for Redding Fashion Alliance’s newest window display.  She told me she was looking for something painterly and using the color of the year for 2018, Ultra Violet.  Robin also told me that I could use one of Gini Holmes‘ Silk Kimono’s she hand creates in her studio.  Redding Fashion Alliance will hang this fashion portrait mid January of 2018, which has been printed as a 20×30 and will be mounted in a gold leaf frame.

This image was inspired by the great Peter Lindbergh’s portrait of Milla Jovovich featured in Vogue Italia 1998.  I happened to buy myself Peter Lindbergh’s book A Different Vision of Fashion Photography recently and fell so in love with this one image of Milla Jovoich. However, interestingly enough, I am not able to find that image online to show you…it seems to only exist in the book.  I do have a copy of it on my Instagram, if you would like to see it.  The light I created was similar to Mr. Lindbergh’s light, but different.  I used 3 light sources to create this photograph.  The main light was my Elinchrom with reflector and a purple gel.  The lights that shape her face in orange and blue were created by using my SB-900’s on slave mode.  I also took inspiration for the color of the light from my color theory book Interaction of Color by Josef Albers.

I knew which model immediately, Jennifer Mailhot.  We had trouble this week collaborating, so Jennifer was brave enough to cut a heavy bang herself.  Kya Solorio was our makeup artist for this shoot, and used Mac’s “Sin” lipstick with some shadow to create depth for the lip.  Dennis Luberus was my photography assistant for the shoot.  Rajneesh Kushwaha of RJ Retouch created the skin retouch and I did the creative edit.

Have to say..I wasn’t planning a shoot tonight, but thought I would get a little exercise and had an opening when Bridget, Hayden’s mom gave me a call.  My fave part of the senior portrait session was when we were in the downtown parking structure with Hayden’s 66 Mustang at the very end of the shoot.

I brought my lights, just because I thought it would be fun to have a bit more control of the light in there for the car part of the shoot!  I have shot a smiliar look before with another Shasta High School senior and model, Bailey Gurell.

Thanks Hayden for doing your thing…if you weren’t sick…I might of bugged you to stay a bit longer! lol!  Hopefully in the future I will get you in front of my camera for my other site I am currently working on each week!  I am constantly looking for people to collaborate with, so if you know anybody who is interested in photography, modeling, video, hair, makeup, styling…please send them my way!

Thanks again Bridget for assisting and Hayden for playing the part.  Here is a little sneak peek, cause I was excited to see these! lol.
