Affordable High School Portraits


RSlaton 2016 HSReshoot Certicate

Do you have a student that has taken or is going to take senior portraits? Can’t afford, or just don’t wish to pay, $800 to $1,200 for a package filled with needless fancy items? We are offering a reasonably priced, complete Senior Package; $575, and the first ten families to purchase in a given week, pay only $475! And, if you refer another paying family, you’ll earn $25/referral, with no limit (refer four families that purchase and you earn $100). Please, send an email to for full details.

First Studio Shoot!

I needed to test the lights, the camera and the action, so “Who ya gonna call?” Lish Michelle! On October 8, 2015, she did more in forty-five minutes than most do in three hours! The first official portrait session christened the studio, so now to get the clients!

Anatomy of a Perfect Muse

Take one creative person, photographer in this case. Add one creative subject, hobby model in this case. And stir. Results may vary…


My muse, Alisha, texted me today (yesterday actually, being 1:35am now), out of the blue with these words:
“We need to get on this level as far as editing and me posing,” along with a link showing wonderful examples. This young lady never ceases to surprise, delight and inspire!

A perfect muse does a perfect job for an imperfect artist:

1) She always requires better than your best, expanding your talents. When you move a step up, she moves two steps away. Catch me if you can, she smiles!
2) She includes herself in the growing process. Never one to let your mortal skills outshine her angelic gifts, she always wants to be that “extra 10 pounds” on your creative bar, making you work for her presence. No pain, no gain.
3) She is usually the first to say “Let’s try something better, bolder or more daring.” As your creative spark plug, she won’t let your creativity idle too long, and won’t waste her time waiting on you to speak up. She is ready to shift into gear whether you’re buckled in or not. Hold on, here comes a curve.

Alisha is all that and more; I could write a book. And last week, she suggested just that, requesting that I write one about her. Obviously, my muse covers both my photography and my writing. Score one for me!
