Back from Hiatus

You may have noticed recently that I haven’t posted any new work since January. And in the past I’ve mentioned that I needed to return to a place where I was shooting for what made me happy. In late January, through a few different incidents, I came to realize that I associate my personal value […]

Katherine Vargas - beautiful Adam.

Adam Allen - Thank you so much Dusti! That honestly means a lot.

Dusti Jones - Great job Adam. My favorites are the guy in the field, the girl with the sunglasses, the girl with the hat and the lights behind her, and the 3 guys in the car. But the jumping ballerina might just take the cake. My favorite part are her shoes! Beautiful!

Diana Reynolds - Yay! I love them, I really do! More than I love the pictures, though, I love that you love them and are proud of them.

And if this shows up for the second time, sorry. Or, not really sorry ’cause then you’d get to read my awesome comment twice!! I commented like 10 minutes ago, and it’s not showing up, but I don’t know if it actually didn’t post or if my phone app is just being screwy.

Before and After – TTV Photo

I wanted to share this before and after because it’s probably the photo most people mistake for being “photoshopped” and “over-processed” when in actuallity, all I’ve done to the photo is some color enhancements.   This photo was done with an old technique call TTV which stands for Through The Viewfinder. You basically take a […]

Big Move Baby Step

As of April 13th Sarah and I no longer live in Hanford. We have moved to Fresno. The new apartment is very awesome! As well as our office will be downstairs with a street access store-front. The majority of our clients come from Fresno, so this puts us much closer to them. It’s located in […]

Michelle - Welcome to Fresno! Lived here all my life so I can relate to so much of your feelings about leaving Hanford. I’d love to welcome you and Sarah with coffee or lunch. One of my favorite is Dusty Buns on Wed at Kaiser’s farmers mrkt. If your up to meeting a new friend, contact me!

Darlene - Adam Allen,
How proud of you and Sarah am I!!! I have watched (and read) you grow over the years! It is with such pleasure and delight to see you and Sarah embark on a new chapter in life. You can be sure that God will be with you every step of the way. Just imagine all the adventures that await you! You will make new friends, maybe even look for a new church body. And why can’t you know the names of your neighbors and UPS or Fed EX man in Fresno??? I imagine that before too very long, you and Sarah will know the names and some personal information about those who work/own those “hole-in-the-wall” places you mentioned in your blog. You, Adam Adam and Sarah, are very personable and I believe before very long that 3 story apartment will be known as
“the place that Adam Allen and Sarah live”, or “Oh, yeah, I know where Adam Allan and Sarah Photography is located!” Great for both of you for taking that step of faith. That very first step is sometimes the hardest! Enjoy my friends, and keep us updated on who you meet and how they touched your heart!!! With Love, Darlene
