Less is More….

Have you ever look at a photo and thought “Wow a little less would have been a lot more.”?

Well for some reason this is on my mind.  This weekend I am shooting a Rock Star birthday party for two beautiful girls. Nyalani is turning 10 and Arissa is turning 8. I am really excited to be the chosen photographer for this event. It should be a lot of fun. I will be there from start to finish. I will be setting up a photo booth setup for family, friends, kids, and guests of all ages to pose for their party photo.  Throught my thinking/preperation process I have been thinking about how to decorate the backdrop for the photos.

I have thought of everything from torn material, to banners, to balloons…. I just don’t know what will work and look best… I started thinking about something once told to me along my photography journey… A friend of mine told me “less is more”… It is sooo true.. Sometimes you don’t have to go all out on your backdrops, props, etc… Sometimes just simple is enough….

Well I will be posting soon from my rock star party… And we will have to decide at that point if less is truly more….




Hello world! “My New Blog”

Today is the day, I have finally decided to start a blog for my photography work. I have had a very difficult time deciding whether or not a blog is necessary. It always just seemed like one more thing to update and work on… But after deep thought and consideration I decided that it is absolutely necessary. The biggest deciding factor was the fact that I can not pin any of my photos on www.pinterest.com . I know you may think I am crazy but I am truly addicted to www.pinterest.com and I would love for some of my work to be out there for all of the pinners to follow…. For those of you who have not been on Pinterest you aught to try it out… The only way I can describe it is “Online Window Shopping”. I get an amazing feeling when I go on and look at different things that interest me… My creative juices start flowing and I just want to make everything… The great thing is that you don’t have to make it right then and there, you simply pin the item to one of you categorized boards and you are able to look at all of your favorites on one board… I love it…

If you would like to check out what I love on pinterest, go to http://pinterest.com/photogbyjag/

I will begin to use this blog to post a little something about all of my photo sessions….

If you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know.
