Breanna in Freak Alley, downtown Boise.

This photoshoot was so much fun. My assistant Cheyanne's good friend Breanna was recruited for a photo shoot just to get out and have some fun.

Obviously very attractive...started off kind of shy and nervous. So we took some time and laughed and messed around until Breanna started getting comfortable.
It was quite a busy day downtown and there were several points where there would be 5-10 people standing around watching our photo shoot, it was a little weird but kind of fun also.

Most of these are with the d700 and the 70-200 and using the softbox.

There are lots more at her gallery here:

Emphasis on portraits, moving away from weddings.

Well I toyed with this a bit last winter and have finally decided.
After 2010 we will only be doing weddings for a few client referrals and for people we already know.
Pricing will be on a case by case basis.

For me photography is about creating not recording...I find with weddings I am not allowed the time to be creative unless the couple I am working with is really into the photography like I am :)
Since that is seldom the case I usually come away from the experience with a feeling of what might have been.

We are only doing a few weddings this year since I actually decided to do this last winter, then second guessed myself this spring when tax time came around.

This will free me up to do a lot more creative projects and to branch out into more creative outlets for my portrait photography.
