I am finally popping in to say hi and tell you all what I’ve been up to. It feels like months of summer have passed already and really we’re only a few weeks in. The temperature in Las Vegas is steadily rising. That’s the thing about living here, it’s either REALLY hot or REALLY cold. I’d say that on average there are 4 weeks per year of perfect weather. Each season (really there are only two here) a polar opposite of the other. Year after year I seem to forget just how hot or how cold it can get.
I recently had the opportunity to shoot a school graduation. My main goal being to catch the little details and emotions of the event. As I took pictures I was reminded why I like being behind the scenes and unobtrusive when I photograph events. When I looked at the images, I was totally reminded why I LOVE what I do. The pictures showed a range of emotions in the kids, being on the brink of happily moving forward and tentatively saying goodbye to friends.
I’m sad to say I shot my last Clink Inc. wedding for the summer. It was an another perfect wedding performed by Penn Jillette followed by the newlyweds taking a ride on the Rio zip line after saying their vows. I have to say that although these wedding shoots were only of the ceremony itself, they were super fun and I enjoyed them. I wish Penn & Teller the very best on their new broadway show!
Book a Las Vegas Photography Mini Session from Now Until June – Only $200!
I’ve had a hiccup in posting to my blog the last two weeks. Life events got in the way and occupied much of my time. I wont bore you with the details but I did continue to photograph my happenings.
First Friday is approaching again but I don’t think I’ll make it out this time. I will be back there before summer ends though. I’m just unable to get out there this month. The temperatures are rising here in Vegas which also means the magic hour is upon us and my love of natural light is being fulfilled.
I’ve been playing the proud momma bear watching my oldest daughter at her track meets and my youngest daughter conquer her stage fright and performing as a lead vocalist at a show at the house of blues. Family has been on my mind a lot and I wonder what other families do in their day to day lives. These are the moments I wish to photograph. School is almost over for the year (a contradiction of emotions accompanies this) and I am working out my schedule to continue capturing others moments.
From now until June I am running a special on “Mini Shoots,” a Las Vegas photography mini session that will be approximately a half hour with a guarantee of 10 incredible shots at the location of your choice. Your investment for this spectacular deal is only $200. This can also be applied to Senior Prom pictures, graduation pictures and just summer fun sessions!
On another note, I have been a mobile photographer for a number of years and have gone through almost every lens attachment out there for my phone and came across the Ztylus lens system. I am completely won over by them. During a break at a photoshoot a few months ago, I saw someone with the case on their phone and asked what it was and how it works, after being shown I ordered one right there on the spot. It hasn’t left my phone since. I’ve been a macro photography enthusiast for a while and this by far has been my favorite lens to use. If you follow me on Instagram you will see I am addicted to these shots. The company contacted me after seeing what I was doing with it and asked if I would be a featured Ambassador of the company, *not a sales rep* but I get the added bonus of being able to give my followers and friends a 25% (TWENTY-FIVE percent!!) discount if you use the code: EDGE25.
Last thing you can also find me on Viewbug now! I am slowly adding things there day by day.
Until next time,
Now, enjoy some of my favorite shots from this week!
First I want to give credit to the people and vendors I encountered last week at First Friday. They were all awesome and just so much fun to get to know. Below is a list of these fabulous people. Make sure to check them out:
Vertex3 – (https://www.facebook.com/vertex3music?_rdr) Burses by Ammy – (firstname.lastname@example.org): Handmade AMAZING purses made with books! I have been drooling over these for years now. Bad Art inc – Neil Burkinshaw (http://badartinc.com/). His view of the world through his art is satirically wonderful. Recycled Propaganda: http://recycledpropaganda.com/ The Dead Flux : https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Dead-Flux/390860774405821?fref=ts they had the coolest Star Wars lamp! Dunkees: www.dunkees.com The artwork made my eyes dance. Incredible 3D work.
Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was gorgeous here in Las Vegas, it’s starting to get hot though. Friday while driving home I made a random turn and ran into a super cool bicycle mob event. I’m still not sure what it was but I of course had to pull over and snap a few shots. I shall keep my eyes posted for any news about it and if it’ll be happening again, looks like a Vegas bike club.
The month is flying by and wedding “season” is sneaking up on us soon and I’m excited to capture that special day, please make sure to glance at my packages or send me an email with any inquiries.
I’m currently trying to put together a mini shoot sale so make sure to keep checking back.
Below are a few shots from my Friday night surprise.
Until next time,

Facebook Update & the Next First Friday is April 3!
Hello again! Its time to get things started. Facebook has finally changed my page name, If you haven’t been to my Facebook page already, stop by and check me out. I will be announcing a special next week both here and there so make sure to check it out.
I’m looking forward to getting out and shooting First Friday Las Vegas next week. The Las Vegas Art scene is so diverse and eclectic. It’s a visual feast for my creativity and my lens and I am hungry. First Friday this month is April 3rd. First Friday has been running for over ten years now. It’s held on the first Friday of every month, the main address is 1228 S Casino Center Blvd. but spans a few blocks. There are fabulous art galleries to check out, live music and incredible food.
It’s truly an amazing thing to see and be a part of. The weather has started to turn nice and it should be beautiful out. If you are a Vegas local, you should come out and enjoy the fun.
I hope to see you there!
Until next time,
Here’s some of my favorite images from a previous First Friday Las Vegas. Enjoy!

Hi and welcome to the Edgewood Rd. Photography blog! This is where I will keep you up to date on sessions and a bit about me. This being my first official post I’m just going to catch you up on all that’s been going on for me and Edgewood Rd. Photography.
Spring is in the air here in Las Vegas, I’ve found myself wandering around outside, camera in hand and a new puppy by my side taking photos for my site & Las Vegas photography blog. I love the beginning of spring when everything is blooming and the bees are buzzing (My secret talent is I’m a bee whisperer). This time of year makes for my favorite kind of lighting, that extraordinary natural light so I’ve been snapping away a lot of mothers natures magic. (Okay and the puppy). I’ve also been doing volunteer photography for Alexander Dawson School capturing my daughters basketball team whenever possible. Photographing sports is sharpening my skills in this genre while enjoying watching the enthusiasm and joy of seeing these games.
I’m looking forward to watching my business grow and expand while meeting new people with whom I can share details of their lives that they don’t always see.
Below are a few of my favorite shots from the last few weeks!
