My Wishlist - Gift Ideas for Your Photographer
Everyone has dreams...
I'm always happy to receive gift cards, a kindly written letter or just a hiking friend. However, I've had some amazing clients and followers send me unexpected gifts and have often been asked what things I'd enjoy receiving without really knowing what to say.
Personality: My favorite colors are dark such as deep purple, gray and black. I prefer ornate chandelier earrings or rings over necklaces and never can pull off dainty single chains or charms. I prefer silver over gold, but also like brass and copper. I love glitter (my nails are frequently adorned!) and I prefer natural rocks, minerals and gemstones over cut gems. I had wanted to be a Geologist as a child, so geodes are prettier to me than diamonds. My favorite smell is peppermint and I make my own peppermint scented beauty products. I prefer cats over dogs. Peacocks are colorful and I adore India (road trip dream!) and Bollywood movies. I do enjoy coffee (Starbucks, duh!) and eating good food, though healthy and minimal ingredients are ideal. I do drink alcohol, but always in moderation. I collect vintage ornate photo frames and books, cabinet cards and tintypes. I love antique stores and exploring anywhere outdoors rugged or urban. I also LOVE to garden so annual (returns yearly) plants and flowers are always an awesome idea.
2017 Upgrade Goal
I am in great need of a new computer to improve my slow delivery and lighting to enhance image quality. I greatly appreciate business referrals and donations. Every dollar assists me with this $8000 goal.

I currently use natural light and a Canon 580EXII as fill-light when needed. However, I regularly have clients who request indoor portraits in the winter, need to improve lighting at weddings and on-location and have had an increase in commercial projects along with product photography for my reviews as a brand ambassador. One commercial client actually purchased lighting for their project, but where they keep their lights on-location, my skills are limited due to no ability to further practice with the lighting on my own time. I've adored Profoto for some time. I recently won a 2' Octa + Speedring from Profoto! With the awesome win and handwritten note, I feel it was a sign to never give up on getting my Profoto dream fulfilled!
