Plenty of smiles on both sides of the camera

Here are three of my favorite photos from three super fun sessions this week. Words cannot express how happy I am to have started Tumbled Bones Photography. I hope that my images express what words cannot.

This weekend I’m looking forward to be shooting more dogs and their women, and on Sunday — Mother’s Day — I’m going to turn the camera towards my own beautiful Mama. (Shhhh, she doesn’t know yet!)

If you’d like to gift yourself with photos of your Mom, it’s not too late! I’m now booking sessions for June. Session prices and details are listed here. I can be reached at My camera and I would love to see you!


It’s official — Tumbled Bones Photography is born!

I think May 1st is the absolute perfect day to officially announce the birth of Tumbled Bones Photography. 🙂 If you’re looking for artsy and unique portraits of women, couples, young athletes and dogs, you’re in the right place. I’m also passionate about photographing urban decay, abandoned houses and buildings, the unusual, the overlooked and the hidden.

I’ll update this site regularly; but if you’re so inclined, I hope you’ll consider becoming a Facebook fan as well! Thanks for stopping by.

My first SOLD print is out the door

Today I shipped the very first print I sold (above) and am walking on air! To commemorate, I indulged a sudden wild hunch that hijacked my fingers and updated my Facebook status to say:

If you’re interested in having me shoot some artsy photos for you, leave a comment or drop me a note. I’m offering a limited number of free sessions while I’m building my portfolio. I do best with kids, dogs and women of all ages. I prefer shooting outdoors or where there’s lots of natural light. Let’s have some fun!

About a dozen women responded. Women of all ages, women with kids, women with dogs. To say I’m thrilled is an understatement! Photography is where my creative soul has been on absolute fire for quite some time, so here we go!

Also exciting and noteworthy: I invited an amazing professional photographer I’ve known for years via Flickr and Facebook to visit and teach me more about photography, and today she booked her flights! WOOT! We’re going to have a total kick-ass time together. Check out Julie Ziesemann’s wonderful work at Sungazing Photography.
