In my last post, I mentioned one of my favorite local female photographers, Elyse Bullard.

Studio Headshots

Lora walked into my studio with a warm smile and a pair of Ed Hardy chucks, and from moment one, I knew she’d be great to work with.

Yoga Seva Website | Commercial Photography and Headshots

One of the more rewarding aspects of being a photographer is being able to provide other small businesses the imagery they need to promote their staff and services. On the surface, commercial photography and headshots may not seem the most glamorous of services, but seeing the value they provide makes them hugely worthwhile. Not to mention, the wide array of truly unique and wonderful people I get to meet in the process. Each company out there has a culture, and […]

Headshots and Hatha Yoga

Late last month, I had the great pleasure of photographing headshots for Ann, yoga practitioner and studio owner at Yoga Seva in Crystal Lake, IL.  Ann is not only beautiful and charismatic, but she is a woman who lives her life in true pursuit of spiritual awareness and growth.  I have known Ann for many years, and have always been inspired by her personal strength and dedication to the empowerment of other women.  She teaches through example and guidance, not only in […]
