Non Traditional Portraits

I was growing tired of colorful/big smiles kind of portraits.  So I decided to change things up a bit and create a more intimate and sober, yet intimate portrait for people.  A bit darker but pretty telling in the attitudes.


Couples or individuals…. I really liked the results.  

I have three spots open before Thanksgiving.  Contact me here to claim your place.  And yes, these would be ready and printed in time for Christmas and the Holiday season! I also have a few more options here!

Cystic Fibrosis-a Dance for 65 Roses 2016

This past Saturday I was once again involved in a totally awesome fundraiser called, “The Adult Prom - a dance for sixty-five roses” And once again, Jerry Sowden, my right hand man during weddings and this Adult Prom, was there to help out as well.  

If you click here you can read the background of this event and understand a little more about CF.  I am close to this event because I have known Ryan for many years.  Not as a real close friend at the start but as wrestling coaches for separate high schools.  We had coached against each other in the past and I had come to know him as a great coach and person and he is very well respected in the wrestling community.  When I heard about Charlee I wanted to do something.  Later on I had heard about the prom and wanted to do anything I could to help out.

The support from these two major league businesses are what makes this event work.  I say that with some reserve because the other sponsors and people that make up this event are both many and very very passionate about this event.  Please check out the sponsor page to see how many people and businesses it takes to make this the event it is.  The funny thing about all of this is that I am involved with this event other than spending the evening taking photographs of all the fun stuff and the attendees enjoying the evening.  I put in about 12 hours.  These other people put in hours, days and weeks and months. 

Please share this post if you feel the need.  The more people read and learn about Cystic fibrosis the more we can do to help find a cure. 


I went away for a few days to clear my head and take some images that I normally do not take.  After all I am a wedding and people photographer and I normally do not enjoy landscape photography that much.  Somehow fog seems to do it for me.  

Maybe it is the calm that it creates by allowing my brain to slow down because I cannot see what is past the subject.  For whatever reason I am thankful.
