Hi there! Welcome to the blog, a journal featuring our most recent weddings, engagements, and occasional travels. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Kayla.

Mentoring Session: Elaine

Mar 26, 2015

I had the wonderful privilege of spending the day with Elaine a few months ago, and we had the best time talking about all things photography.
We spent a few hours talking about posing and lighting.
We discussed the differences in lens choices and the power of reflecting light.
Before taking a break for lunch, we shot a few new headshots for her business, and then finished the day with a few editing tips to help achieve the vibrant, color filled images we love.

It was the best day, and I’m excited to see Elaine grow and succeed in her business. 🙂


Elaine’s daughter came along to be our model for a few photos which was so much fun!

Send us an email and set up your own personalized mentoring session.


  1. I read about your mentoring sessions and thought that would be something I’d love to do. I’m from NY and would probably make the trip with my 14 yr. old daughter after school is out, maybe in May or June. Do you have any dates available and what is your fee? I could use the help for outside shots! I have a Canon 5D Mark 11 and a Canon 6D. My main lenses are a 70-200, 85, 16-35, and 24-105. I have a couple of speedlites and use alien bees for inside shots. I’m self taught and don’t know any other photographers in the area and feel like my images are getting “stale” and have always admired your work. Looking forward to hearing from you and hoping I can make this work! 🙂
