Kimmie Laughter

Kimmie Laughter.  No…. her last name isn’t actually laughter… but it should be! This gorgeous woman gives what myself and my fiance Aaron like to call, “Fun F.O.M.O” (fear of missing out on fun).  Within ear shot, just one laugh from her immediately makes you want to be in her presence, to know what kinds

I’ve known Anja Indirani for years.  I can in fact remember knowing who she was, before we actually knew each other.  I was struck by her grace, her beauty, her passion for expression and her inner flame, that burned so very bright, especially in the light of her performances.  It wasn’t long before we were

This lovely woman has just got a glow about her.  The moment she stepped in the room, I felt her grace.  We relaxed into effortless flow.. her and I, in a dance of creation with my camera.  She’s got a kind of ease about her that makes you more comfortable… even when she doesn’t think

Cosmo

Cosmo.. what a treat!  We laughed quite a lot throughout the shoot, really harnessing that playful essence of who he is.  Scientist, adventurer and deep conversationalist, there was never a dull moment.  His piercing green eyes speak of his quiet confidence and call to a deep story within him. I truly loved working with him!

Shooting the lovely Maggie was a blast!  She walked in sporting bright pink locks, rocking what occurred to me as Cruella Deville inspired look, minus the cruelty and add lots of fun and mischief!  Her amazing personality and self expression is a true part of who she is, and I was so happy she choose
