Karen Goldman - I have three grown daughters and they have blessed me with the wonderful opportunity to be a mom. I never realized that for some women getting pregnant was a challenge. My daughter is now 34 and has had 2 miscarriages, it is so painful and she already wants to give up! only being married for one year!
Thank you for posting your blog.

first engagement photoshoot

I’m not sure what’s more shocking – that it’s been more than 3 weeks since I’ve done a photoshoot or that today was the first ever engagement photoshoot for me. Yes, I’ve been juggling teaching and my masters but for the last month or two I’ve been pretty excited to finally meet Monique & Peter […]

David Wood - 18. The Logo, possibly with different text.
73. Elegance.
83. Good form, could be built upon.
3. Good form, could be built upon.
1. Looks like your logo, and is good but maybe too similar?

My favorite would have to be 57′s “h” and I would look at more ways to incorporate that style, but that’s just me and my opinions. Good stuff, glad I could sneak a peek at your process. Good luck on the assignment.

Jim Rush - Hey Amanda, I just recently found an interest in font sketches, and this collection really thought me a lot about the creations of fonts and logos.


A few moments with my sister’s kids

My younger sister, Joleen, decided she and her kids would take an impromptu last minute trip to visit us in Orlando after she learned she’d be off work for the New Year’s weekend. Of course while they were here I took plenty of photos but I thought it might be more fun to rewind and […]

5 day old Peyton

Today I had the opportunity to meet my colleague, Garrett Burtoft’s little girl, Peyton. I always let parents know in advance that I prefer to meet for newborn photos in the first week or so. Most of the memorable photos found in my portfolio are those taken of babies that are between 5 and 10 […]
