About a month ago, I decided I was going to start learning film again. The first time around was uninspiring. I don’t know why but my images just didn’t have that soft, touchable film look and I set my film cameras down. For a year. When this shoot for Gabby and Jeff came around, I […]
Everyone goes through bouts of depression at some point in their lives. At several points in our lives, actually. Sometimes we handle it well and sometimes we don’t. Sometimes it comes from something severe like the loss of someone important in our lives and sometimes it comes from nothing at all. Sometimes we are resilient […]
Photography is so fun! I allow myself to have a great time and be creative. I’ve grown over the years and when I’m shooting, I feel free and confident and in my element. But after a busy weekend like this last weekend, I am mentally drained. I’ve been sitting in front of my computer watching […]
Let’s see if I can put this into words. This last Friday was my second year photographing Night to Shine. All over the World, The Tim Tebow foundation sponsored a Prom Night for people with special needs. They arrive in a limo, they walk a red carpet and are crowned Prom King and Queen by […]

I made a list: I take beautiful images I treat their wedding as I would my own My passion for photography My commitment to reply to clients as quickly as possible, day or night […]
It’s that moment I’ve always dreaded. The moment where you have to choose. One or the other. You know what I mean? I’m sure you do, we’ve all been there. And the hardest for me is to make a choice as an artist or as a business owner. I have the heart of a photographer […]
Apart from a styled shoot tomorrow, my wedding season has officially ended! Currently in Arizona, it is 100 degrees and inside is the place to be! I’m a firm believer that creativity isn’t a God given talent, but rather a habit. So while my camera isn’t getting as much use through the hotter months, I […]

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
