The new year signifies some huge changes for me in many ways. My current partnership Allura Modern is transitioning from a full range portrait company to specializing exclusively in wedding portraiture. My partner Michelle Black and I will focus our partnership only on weddings and each of us will take our portraiture in new directions. My interest lies in artistic children's portraiture, senior portraits, promotional work in music, fashion, and a variety of other areas, and my continued exploration in my own personal artistic work.

I am currently working on my new flash site for Bella Valentina Photography, which is my new portrait company (created with middle names of both of my daughters). There is still much to do before I officially announce my launch! I am very ex cited to begin this new journey and hope you will all continue to follow and support my artistic endeavors. These are a few images from a recent senior session. Thank you to Halee Hildebrand and Lauren Romine for such a fun session!

Michelle - yeah, I've been signed up here forever but never bothered to use it until I had this site!

And thank you for your good wishes and compliments! And thank you for everything, without you I would not even be doing this at all! I owe you tons for that!

I'm so thankful that we are so supportive of each other with all of this. I think it speaks volumes about our professionalism and especially about our friendship.

I love you!
