When an East Coast wedding planner reached out to see if I’d send a few things for a styled shoot she was working on, I knew just what would complete her high end vision. Using a white ink pen, I emblazoned the shoot theme in simple, modern calligraphy on a crystal clear sheet of Plexiglass. The resulting signage integrates perfectly with contributions from vendors all across the country and offers the photographer the opportunity to create unique shots.
The hand-written invitations were truly over-the-top, this time on a thinner, frosted version of the Plexiglass material. Can you imagine receiving these in the mail?

Kaia Calhoun shoots a lot of senior portraits. And teenagers (and their parents) have a lot of special requests: removing acne and scars, bruises from athletes’ shins, even editing out braces. Each session is different and I love the challenge!
Emily Colbert is a Missouri-based lifestyle photographer who sends me sessions that need a bit of extra love—in the form of photoshop work.
The images from this sweet little newborn session were just about perfect—except for the textured background. Because of transparency of the cheesecloth, Emily just couldn’t quite fix it in a way that looked natural. Working at extreme magnification, I was able to do so and get the entire session back to her in just two days!
The background was the issue once again in a portrait session for a personal trainer. Emily had shot the photos with strong directional lighting to highlight the trainer’s muscle tone, but unfortunately that resulted in a muddy gray background. The client wanted a clean white background for her website but the wispy tendrils of her hair presented a challenge. Using a variety of techniques, I was able to pull the color from the background without losing her hair.
Jill came to me a few weeks after her destination wedding hoping I could save the photos from the big day she hoped to cherish for years to come. The day before her wedding, she had accidentally gotten a pretty significant sunburn and was hoping I could remove the redness from her chest and shoulders along with a well-defined line across her back.
I removed the magenta tones from her skin on each image individually, taking care to preserve the integrity and quality of the photos so they could be professionally printed at a large size.
