Awesome Photo Shoot With Up and Coming Actress

Fresh off the set of her new TVONE Show, “Love That Girl,” is actress, Bresha Webb.  We recently had a chance to work with the lovely and talented Ms. Webb during a Hair/Stylist Photo shoot. While some have actresses choose to give up on black Hollywood, Baltimore native and Baltimore School for the Arts alum Bresha Webb has chosen the latter. The 24 year old California Arts Institute of the Arts Alum and former ER star is making a name for herself in Hollywood and giving back all at the same time. She was such a joy to work with.  For more information about her visit her show’s website at:

Maternity Photo Shoot

I had a wonderful maternity photo shoot with a beautiful young lady at their one of the local parks in Long Beach.  It’s  always a huge honor to be able to capture such precious memories. Maternity photo shoots are always a great way to get some pregnancy photos to include in a baby album, scrap book, or to just have to remember.  Here are some of the beautiful shots we were able to capture.

Hey Seniors!!!!!! It is That Time!

Here we go with that time of year again. It’s time for this year’s Junior class to start thinking about their senior photos this summer.
That’s right, 2012, I’m talking directly to YOU!
This year we have two HUGE specials for the months of July and August. These months are already booking up and I know once word gets out about our high school senior specials, there won’t be much room for sessions at all. So my advice is to book your sessions now. Seriously.
The catch to these specials is very simple.
We have mailers going out, and cards being handed out all over town, the studio included. So find a card or just mention this blog post when you book your session. But remember, if you don’t mention the ad, you don’t get the deal. So please,
