Los Angeles Fine Art Nude Photographer As you probably know, I’m a Los Angeles fine art nude photographer. I have…
No matter where you are these days it seems as though you will find somebody taking a picture with their phone or digital camera and every new mom and Uncle Joe are calling themselves “photographers”. Now I’d hate to burst your bubble if this sounds like you but just because you have played around with a fancy camera or have taken a few great pictures with an iPhone this doesn’t qualify you as a professional photographer. Unfortunately, thanks to modern day technology and social media we are used to seeing a flood of mediocre images every day and the world is being taught that this is what photography looks like now. This just isn’t true!
I’ve had a lot of return clients lately at my LA portrait studios, and I am always beyond flattered that they return to me for their portrait photography time and again since my prices can be higher than some of my competition. With that being said, I think it’s pretty clear I must be doing something right!
How do you tackle a huge photography project that makes you absolutely crazy? Well, that’s what I just did.
Melissa Erickson, a writer with GateHouse Media News Group, contacted my portrait studio wanting child and family photography advice from…
One of the hallmarks of my photography is the simplicity of emotions that I attempt to demonstrate. I try very…
Gosh, I can’t believe the response to my appearance in a Bank of America ad. It’s very cool. I feel like a celebrity, not just a celebrity photographer.
Today, on Memorial Day, I am reminded of a photography project that I created a couple of years ago called “Images From The Homefront”. In that photo project I created portraits of military families attempting to express the emotions of each family who loves and supports a member of our military.
The Dahm Triplets, whom I was fortunate enough to create fantastic pregnancy photography last year, together and with their spouses, were on The Rachael Ray Show talking about their new workout video for new moms called “321 Get Your Body Back”.

I tried to be a photographer less on this trip. Although I did take several hundred images, which is low for me, I tried to force myself to put the camera down so that I could enjoy my family. Sometimes we mothers need to be reminded that life is happening all around us and to breathe it in. I wish that I had a professional photographer to follow me around so that I could not try to grab those moments myself, but BE IN those moments.
On a daily basis, I encourage parents and loved ones to slow down and take the time to document these beautiful and fleeting moments in life with portrait photography. Being a proud mother, I see, first hand, how quickly children grow and how easy it is to let the craziness of life distract you from enjoying these times. Working for Linnea and watching how she sees life and love, I have truly come to see why family portraits are such an irreplaceable treasure…yet it took her months of reminding me to actually step in front of her lens myself!
I chose to submit a fine art nude series of three art pieces which feature a woman posing nude on a dance pole. In the images, I captured her in a sophisticated way performing erotic “pole dancing” moves which she does regularly as part of her fitness regimen .
“Being a photographer means I get to be a part of so many families and I love knowing that I can create something that reminds you of your love for them. Each moment is priceless and we all need to stop once in a while to capture those moments for posterity to remind us what adds true meaning to our lives.”
