Make Your Own Color Palette!

I found the most fun new online toy! Sherwin-Williams, the paint brand, has this awesome new tool called “Let’s Chip It”. Basically what it does is gives you a color palette (of Sherwin-Williams paint colors) for a photo you choose! You can see an example I did below.


(On a side note, isn’t that kiddo precious? I took that in the hospital when she was one and a half days old.)
This tool has endless possibilities for a creative type of person! For example, you could use it the way that Sherwin-Williams intended: use it to find great colors to paint a room or your whole house. Or maybe someone took an amazing photo of your children and you’d like to decorate their playroom around the photo. Now you can paint and decorate with the right colors! Or maybe you went to Hawaii and took a stunning photo at a crystal clear blue, sandy beach and now you want to redecorate your dining room to remind yourself of your trip…EASY…now! Other great uses for this took could be picking out a color palette for a wedding or even for finding out new colors to infuse into your wardrobe. Go ahead and check it out, it’s super fun!

Maternity Workout Video Cover – San Diego Photographer

Meet Madeline! You may remember her from our last shoot together, for the cover of her workout video: Fitness Roots DVD. She is a total rock-star personal trainer and in a few short weeks, she is going to have a new job…Mommy! She recently shot new footage for a “soon-to-be Mom workout”! We shot the below photo which is going to be used as the cover image of the new workout. (click the image to see it larger and sharper!)

This image was an extra one we shot and it turned out so nice, I figured I’d share :)

Madeline, I had a great time on our shoot! I am so excited to meet the new little one AND spread the work about the new workout video!

Madeline – Personal Trainer Headshots

Meet Madeline! She is an AWESOME personal trainer in San Diego.

Seriously, how cute (and buff!) is she? And I can tell you from personal experience, she is GREAT at what she does!

Stay on the lookout because Madeline has a new fitness DVD coming out soon! How exciting is that?

Madeline, I had a great time at our shoot! Wishing you much success with your business!

“Suit in the City” – San Diego Business Headshots

Meet Ian, owner of Mission Partners, a marketing and advertising firm in San Diego. He needed business portraits, so we headed downtown near his office to work with the great atmosphere. This first shot is my absolute favorite!

I like both of these photos and it is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate how just a small move can change the look of a photo. Because these shots were for business, we wanted to get both “smiling” and “serious” shots so Ian could have a choice. He was a GREAT client because he took direction from me perfectly, making the small adjustments I asked him to make like “turn your head this way”, “put your chin down”, “look this way”, etc. It’s hard to be a model and I understand! Sometimes my directions might sound crazy, but it’s all to get the best shot!

This last one had me cracking up when I came home and went through the photos! As we were looking for locations to shoot downtown, I found this awesome doorway. Ian stepped near the door and I knew something was wrong! This doorway was somehow smaller then a standard doorway. Strange? Yes! On top of this, Ian is quite tall and has a large wingspan…which ended in this “super hero-ish” image! Love It!

If you own a business or need professional portraits for your job, give me a ring! I’d love to discuss what you need!
