Summertime in Las Vegas

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!

Las Vegas Photography Mini Session from Now Until June!

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,
M.


Now, enjoy some of my favorite shots from this week!
