The Power of Pictures: an Omaha Lifestyle Photographer’s Perspective

Cameras are readily accessible for anyone. Gone are the days of having to save the 12 shots on the roll of film for an entire event. We no longer need to make sure every click is picture perfect (that phrase was coined for a reason!)¬†because we aren’t getting another chance to get it again. We take pictures of EVERYTHING now.

When they get “it”-Omaha Lifestyle Children’s Photographer

If you know me or if you’ve been following MLP for a time now, then you know I’m extremely passionate at getting those REAL moments. Not cute smiles on a flawless backdrop (which I admit are indeed cute). But moments of life that are so fleeting and should be remembered forever. It’s these pictures that will bring us back to these times. When I get to work with people who get it and match my passion for it, magic happens. Magic like this. Enjoy! melView full post »

Baby J-Omaha Lifestyle Child Photographer

I had such a fun time using my new ranch outdoor studio for this session! I still believe the best sessions are done in home, but for those of you who aren’t comfortable with that, I now have a new location at my disposal and boy is it gorgeous. Almost as gorgeous as this little dude, but not quite Ask me about scheduling your next session there! melView full post »
