I have had the incredible honor of working with Ashley (as well as her family) for many sessions over the years! Everything from senior pictures, a sister session for their parents for Christmas, family pictures, real estate pictures for her mom, and now retiring fair queen pictures. This is the part of photography I love. Lately,…

This past winter, I worked with Marlee after it had snowed to shoot a ‘Frozen‘ inspired session as she was the Jr. Miss Effingham County. Now that summer is here, a new Jr. Miss has been crowned and we did some retiring pictures at the fair to commemorate her time as Jr. Miss. I love…

This seems like an obvious title for any photographer, but when you really sit down an think about it, how many of you (photographers) actually take a moment to really think about where it is your light is coming from? Is it reflecting off of a window? A reflector? Is it being defused by a…

I received an email last month with a request for head shots for Marlee, Jr. Miss Effingham County, so it was already a pretty awesome opportunity and then to top it off, they wanted them outdoor. Obviously looking through my work I’m an on-location photographer, I love outdoor, and I love natural lighting. Don’t get me wrong,…

A couple years ago I had my logo created. I knew when it was made that I wanted the SH to somehow be incorporated and what was mad was an S and an H together that sort of created an infinity sign, but not too much. But the S and H were very defined. The…

I’ve said it a number of times now but 2014 is a year of new opportunities, and this is just another one of those opportunities.

This probably started late-summer of 2013, I started doing pictures for a dental company, Heartland Dental Care in Effingham, IL. They had just completed the construction of their new building and wanted some pictures of it for their magazine they put out. Everything from the interior to the exterior. This led to the opportunity opening…

Olivia is my second cousin, and when my cousin’s wife called me up and asked about getting pictures of Olivia for Christmas, I was more than up for the task! Olivia is just like any other young girl, full of life, and REALLY goofy. Then I find out she has her friend Mary there as…

I had been looking forward to this session for a while now! Band consist of 3 guys. They all love music, and they all know music, as well as the bands that they follow so when it came to posing them, this was a breeze! It’s almost as if they had practiced these poses before….

This was my first contest since I started the photography business, and while the numbers weren’t many, the competition went great. Some great pictures that turned out, and it is looking to be a great competition so far. And it was quite the time taking the pictures as well. From freezing windy streets of Effingham,…
