I’m sure you know me enough by now to know that I like different, even if a session takes place in the exact same location as another I want to have different angles, poses, and lighting. So when I met with Samantha at Ballard Nature Center in Altamont, IL I know I had to expand…

It’s almost kind of funny when photographing guys because I see myself when I was a senior. In most cases when I ask about different poses, or locations the typical response is, “eh, I don’t care.” lol But even though on the outside they don’t care, on the inside they’ve seen pictures of friends, or…

About a month or two ago, Alyssa emailed me about what to do for a picture for her save the dates. She was in need of a digital file. As I typed my response out giving her the options in how to purchase a digital file for her Save the Dates it dawned on me…

Lets rewind back to session number one back in July, the week it started to get miserably HOT! Well, that was 2 months and about about 20 degrees ago! This was a completely different session. A nice cool breeze, sunny… Just right. And because it was much cooler we could spend more time walking around…

This past week has been huge for me! I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the WPPI Road Trip in Chicago. WPPI host a massive show in Las Vegas (which last year and this year I am unfortunately able to attend), and they have every supplier and speaker a photographer could imagine. Its…

As senior sessions start to come in full swing, I had to make sure to get a session in with my brother-in-law. Nothing beats doing a senior session, then getting a cooked meal afterwards! 🙂  Of course, I guess having the family connection has a little to do with that. But just like when doing…

It’s definitely an honor, and always a blast to be the photographer of a friend’s wedding! Alisha, who in high school was the one who held a sign up with my name on it during my basketball games was one of my best friends in high school. You probably wouldn’t have known this if you…

Have you ever found that thing you truly enjoy doing, and when you are doing that thing, you break your eyes away a second to look at the clock and it’s been like 10 hours?!!! Well, for me, that “thing” is photography. There is just not enough time in the day to edit pictures. I…

Casey is one of those girls that I think modeling could be in her future. I love when a session consists of me taking a picture and the person immediately switching poses for the next picture. That’s kind of how Casey’s pictures went. I don’t think I got any pictures that were alike from one…

This day was just one of those days, you know what I’m talking about; You’ve spent months, maybe even over a year to plan your wedding and when you big day finally comes, nothing seems to be going right. Yet, when the ceremony starts and everyone is walking down the aisle, somehow, everything pieces together…

As a photographer, sessions can get hectic. Whether it is a baby not cooperating, a wedding not going as planned, or whatever the case… It can get pretty crazy. That is, however, on of my favorite things about photography, it keeps me on my toes and keeps things interesting. Photography is a field of creativity…
