Sisters (a preview for Michelle & Bonnie)

I had such a great time working with Michelle and Bonnie this October.  They were super easy to photograph, and we covered as much ground in a mini-session as we typically cover in a full length “A Family Affair” session.  Although they had never done an on location shoot before,

Why I don’t offer my work on a photo CD or disc.

True Love (a preview for Nicole)

Previews (aka sneak peeks) are fun, and I’ve been pretty bad.  I had gotten out of the habit of sharing them on my personal blog and have never shared any here…  but I promise to make an effort to post a little more frequently.  I know everyone enjoys seeing their

TD on “Passing”

Passing.  A term I personally find to be highly offensive, and a term I hear being used far too often by my Trans* sisters to describe themselves or others in the Trans* community.  What it refers to is how well one “passes” as a cis Woman (or man).  Why do
