Today’s post is dedicated to my sister-in-law, Kristy.  I’ve known Kristy for 14-plus years and she has yet to take a bad photo.  I came up with the idea to shoot her in B&W and her smile just lights up the frames!


Recently I have started to experiment with HDR (high dynamic range) photography.  I’m not sure if I like it yet, but you can definitely create some interesting images.

Dana Self - we love all of them!!


Last month I had the opportunity to do my first senior portrait shoot.  My subject was the beautiful and talented Miss Ashlee.  This shoot was a collaboration with my friend Demetrius Austin. ( Thanks again DA for the studio hookup!)    Ashlee’s plans after she graduates from Niwot H.S. next year are to head to college and become an engineer.

Cardinals Camp

Yesterday I took the 2 1/2 hour drive out of the valley of the sun, up to Flagstaff, AZ, to take a peek a the Arizona Cardinals camp.  Regardless of how they finish this year, these fellas work HARD.

Family Day

Today was family day and we decided to take a drive with my daughter, Jada, deciding that we would head east.  Not much going on east of our house (boring according to Jada) until we ran across some train tracks.  This is Jalen’s second favorite thing in the world (Thomas the Tank Engine is 1st).

Dana - We all know that Jalen’s 1st love is food! Nice website!
