Welcome to my blog! I'm a Las Vegas based photographer and mother of two beautiful daughters. I've always enjoyed the art of photography and capturing all the special moments. I am currently pursuing my degree in photography to further expand my knowledge on all aspects. I aspire to take unique photos that are natural and really capture the essence of the individual. I hope you follow and learn as I learn to be a better photographer!

Vanessa's Session

Here are some photos from my sessions with the lovely Vanessa.  We took photos on two separate occassions and two different locations.  I love trying out new locations and there is really a large variety here in Las Vegas.

As promised here are several photos from my photo session, with the lovely mom to be, Karen!  And the timing was just right.  After several hospital visits and some preterm labor we weren't sure if we would get a chance to have our session.  Thankfully the twins decided to wait a little longer so mom could get some pictures.

Maternity Session

I will be doing another maternity session tomorrow afternoon.  Last minute deal, with a mom to be due in 1 week!  So time is definitely of the essence.  We will be shooting at some interesting Las Vegas locations, so I can't wait to see how they will turn out.  I will post those and some more of the last maternity session soon.

Making Frames in Photoshop

As part of one of my class assignments we had to learn to make "custom" frames using photoshop.  It's amazing learning all the things you can do in photoshop.  Here are the frames I created:

My apologies for not keeping this website more current.....work, school and family keeps me BUSY!!!  I've created a facebook page and post pictures there often.  So please search my company on Facebook under "Qutzie Photography" and select "like"on my page.

Upcoming Sessions & Photo Assignments
i'll have the pleasure of doing a maternity session once again this weekend (unless babies arrive first!).  Gorgeous soon to be mother of twins and her beautiful family!  As a photo assignment I'll also be doing some outdoor portraits, I've already posted one from today....more to come.   There will also be some outdoor/nature type photos for another class I'm taking!  I hope you enjoy and follow me on my photography journey.

Little Boys

I took these a while back and got so busy I forgot to post them!  1 yr pics for little Easton and so much fun.  He was a bit grumpy, but that sometimes works in my favor :)  Here are some of my favorites from his session!

Little Face

Sitting home thinking of my upcoming homework assignment using different outdoor lighting situations, I grabbed my little one and outside we went.  I just love it when the lighting outdoors is just perfect for photography.

Little Robert

I had a blast at my session with little Robert and his family.  He was so much fun and incredibly cute!  A reminder of why I love photography so much.  Here are some of the photos from our session:

Final Layouts

These are the final layouts submitted for my final project (motorcycles).  I made a few different layouts since I had so many options to choose from.  Four will be chosen for our class magazine. 

Motorcycles are FUN!

For my final project in Commercial Photography I decided to try shooting motorcycles.  We'd worked with small objects and people in class, so I wanted to do something at a different level.  It was a challenge with 30mph gusts out in the dry lake bed where we shot, but I think it was most definitely worth it!!!

Angelina, 10 Months

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of taking pictures of sweet Angelina, on her 10th month birthday!  She was very mobile, making things more "interesting".  Had a great time and loving how the pictures turned out.  Here is a little taste of our session:

Neon Park

I had an amazing day today shooting at Neon Park.  For those of you who don't know, that's where old Vegas signs end up.  Very neat to see the history of Las Vegas and get the opportunity to shoot there!  The models were absolutely amazing!  LOTS of pictures....so hard to just choose a few to upload...LOL, so enjoy :)

Easter Fun!

Had a lot of fun this past weekend shooting little miss McKenna for Easter.  I got to use some new props and also test out some lighting equipment borrowed from my Commercial Photography class.  Here are just some of the first photos from this session:

Stay tuned for more pictures from this session and some others I did over the weekend.  I also did an event shoot which was surprisingly fun...although my arms got a good workout carrying the lighting equipment around!
