heart {no. 6}

Heart number six is in honor of my new friend Clayton Austin who is visiting this weekend, all the way from Texas!  In addition to being the speaker at our CNY PUG meeting on Monday, Clayton also flew all this way so he could photograph some portraits in the snow here.  With that in mind, […]

heart {no. 5}

Don’t forget I’m a newbie at this blog challenge business, but hang in there with me.  Today’s entry is a little different from the rest.  Instead of making a heart, Beth my sister “found” a heart.  Kind of like when you’re laying on a blanket looking up at a summer sky and you see a […]

Besso and Giovanni - Great hair style Beth and you know I’m a sucker for an abstract heart found in nature.

Beth - Love is everywhere :)

Noelle - Excellent heart – and great update on your studio manager <3

heart {no. 4}

If you are new to the blog, I’m in the midst of my first personal blog challenge.  I’m posting a heart a day for the first fourteen days of February just for a little bit of Valentines Day fun. So here is heart number 4.  It’s another example of Michelle and I having fun making […]

Meredith Perdue - This is a great image- I love this idea, Alice!

alice - Hi Lindsay, Thanks for coming by. I’m embarrassed to admit it, but it took me a little while to figure out your little message was a heart… guess I’m not quite as cutting edge as I imagine myself to be. xoxo

Lindsay - <3

heart {no. 3}

I dipped into the archives tonight to bring you heart number three in the 14 hearts blog challenge, but this one is worth repeating. Karina and Bruno had an amazing wedding at the Figueroa Hotel in Los Angeles famous for it’s Moroccan flair and the Blue Door.  Here is a little fun my second shooters […]

Beth - That is really cool!

heart {no. 2}

Seeing as I am a photographer, and this is my blog, it is perfectly acceptable for you to assume that I am going to post another photograph with a heart in it for day two of my 14 hearts blog challenge.  Well look out!  This is a curve ball post, as I just have to […]

Noelle - I love the party hat the best…. it’s a lovely drawing…. and perfect example of hearts in art!

Besso and Giovanni - What an accurate portrait of Lulu and the love Besso has for you!

Beth - I love the drawing, the artist, and that you’ve got your own file dedicated to Besso’s treasures!!

heart {no. 1}

I’ve heard people complain about holidays, saying that they don’t “believe” in them.  That we should all just treat our loved ones special everyday.  Well, who can really argue about treating each other special everyday?  Not me.   Yet, while Valentines Day has been notoriously called a Hallmark holiday, I still like it.  In fact, […]

alice - Andy, that is hilarious! I think you and Carrie did eat that cupcake.

Andy - I think I ate that cupcake!

Laura - Too cute!

wedding albums {new portfolio}

I recently heard another photographer say “It is not only our job to make beautiful images for our clients, but to also guide them through to the end of the experience… the end being the final destination for the photography.” When properly done, an album will tell your story.  You can pull it off a […]

Jill - art + memories + something you can touch = WOW

Brianna Phelan - The album is beautiful. Great job (:

Marianne Lozano - looks great Alice!

laure - Love, love, love this album!

Cathy - My wedding album is the BEST money I spent for my wedding. Fifteen years later, we still take it out and look at it. The kids are fascinated by it too.

Beth - The quality of the album paper and binding is wonderful, combined with your design and gorgeous images, its divine!

Noelle - This is fabulous – I love how the images are not constrained to one page. And the double page spread – it reminds me of Life magazine – uber professional and memorable…..

the nelsons {just a peek}

Have you ever thought about doing a portrait session in the winter?  If not, I think you should!  While the flowers of spring, grass of summer, and colors of autumn are all beautiful, I have to say I do love me a wintry scene. With this in mind, I’m happy to share with you a […]

carrie + andy {slideshow}

Absolutely loving the new trend in stop motion messages. Carrie’s and Andy’s Valentines Day themed portrait session, gave me the perfect opportunity to give it a try for myself. These two are so cute, and I couldn’t be happier with this fun little valentine message… The creative possibilities for this type of fun stop motion […]

Last night was our monthly CNY PUG (Pictage User Group) meeting for professional photographers!  Unfortunately a few of our members couldn’t make it due to little life events, like oh going to have a baby any day now, dogs in surgery, sick kids, and jetting off to Florida… you know who you are :)   Luckily […]
