How Important is Your Online Business Portrait?

Lumacraft-BBCx-2014-10-15_11-48-39

People are increasingly likely to first encounter us through our online presence rather than in person. Recent scientific research has found that those first impressions of us will be based primarily on viewing our profile pictures, that they will last, and that they will determine important decisions that are later made about us. What can we do to influence the impression that our profile portrait makes?

Lea and Shawn’s Wedding Celebration

Last Saturday, Lea and Shawn celebrated their marriage in the company of family and friends. This celebration was the culmination of a year of big milestones for the couple, milestones that I have been privileged to document: their engagement, intimate winter wedding ceremony (parts 1 and 2), first home, and the birth of Kylie (before and after).

When we first met a little over a year ago, I shared with Lea my vision of ultimately producing something special for them. More than just a wedding album, we had an opportunity to weave together images of all of these events in a "year of life" album. I think that Lea is just excited as I am that it is now time for me to begin composing that album.

Food Photography

I have had several recent inquiries about food photography, so I decided that it was time to update my portfolio.  I produced these yesterday.
