A&E Urban Outfitters/Limited Too

The next challenge for the models was a shoot for Urban Outfitters (for the older ladies) and for Limited Too for the younger guys. We wanted to shoot all outdoors, but that sun insisted on going down, despite my begging it not to. Congratulations to Sophia for her UO Challenge win and Kelsey for the Ltd Too risk-taking pose that won her the week's best shot.

It's so exciting for me to see these guys improve on what they're learning each week. They are not only learning everything about the modeling industry, but I'm seeing their poise and confidence grow each time I see them.

A&E "got milk?"

So, things are so busy and exciting around the A&E Studio in Colorado Springs right now. The A&E Top Model Program is underway and the competition is heating up as these guys are turning it on!! They are learning so much and we are seeing them transform right before us and it's so much fun to watch and be part of.

I'm the in-house photographer for the A&E Studio and on the judges' panel and each of these ladies is doing such a great job. Below you will find each girl's (and guy's) best shot for the "got milk?" ad challenge where they had to come up with a character that could be used in the campaign based on preparation, professionalism, posing, and overall delivery of the challenge instructions.

A HUGE and well-deserved "congratulations" to Kala and Jasmine on their big first-week wins!!!!!!

Celebrity Ashton Grant

I am constantly amazed at the job I am so fortunate to have -- I love getting to photograph these hip celebrities and more than that, get to know them. Ashton is just about as down-to-earth, nice gal as you can find. She's a dream to photograph and a blast to be around! She's got tons of new stuff coming up - for one, she'll be at the Chapel Hills Mall on December 6th for a live performance, and you can have the opportunity to be photographed with her, so be sure and come on out if you can!
Ashton just gave an incredible performance at the Key Club in Los Angeles - check out the link to the LA Times story and you can see a photo of Ashton from the performance -- how cool is THAT!?!

Exciting News!

It is with much excitement and gratitude that I write about a bit of recent news that has made me so thrilled and proud. Thanks to Jim Miotke, who is a talented photographer and writer of photography books, for the chance to have my work published in his new book, Photographing Children. This is a huge honor to become a published photographer and I am so very excited. Thanks, also, to Lawson and Kallie, who were the lucky models whose images were chosen for the book! Congratulations, girls!

The book is available now at
