Our Growing Family

We’ve been a bit silent over the past week or so on social media, our blog, and so on. Here’s a birth story… A week ago Monday, October 17, we had just been at my sister’s house for a meal celebrating my dad’s birthday. As we were leaving, Natasha said she was feeling tightening or contractions, but she couldn’t tell …

Goodbye 20s, Hello 30s

I think after I turned 17, birthdays really weren’t anything crazy for me. They were just another day. In fact, ever since I was 18, I’ve done some kind of work on my birthday. After starting with photography, I would try and book a wedding on my birthday (or at least the weekend right around that date). This birthday, though, is …

Red Riding Hood Inspired Session

I’ve been wanting to do some stylized shoots for some time now, and one area I really wanted to look into doing was a cosplay shoot, or even not full on costume but inspired-by. This is my first of a series I’m going to be doing. When brainstorming what to do, I knew I had a group of friends that …

The Perfect Vacation: Part 2

Now we are getting to the bulk of the photography. This was the part of the trip that we spent the most time taking pictures while out hiking. I named this blog “The Perfect Vacation” because it really was. In a span of 7 days, we were in the city, mountains, rain forest, beach and ocean. With the exception of …

The Perfect Vacation: Part 1

For those who follow my blog may have noticed that it’s been kind of inactive for the past week. I do not do many blog posts in advance, it’s just not the way I operate, I like things to happen in real time on here, letting y’all know what’s going on as it happens. This past week Natasha and I decided …

Ham City Jam

This was my second year photographing the Ham City Jam, and this year we stepped it up. Not only pictures, but video as well, and over the next few months we’ll be producing quite a video of the event. Being local to the area and seeing just how big this even is for having a smaller skatepark, I took a …

New Blog in the Works

Please excuse the messy look for a day or two as we are updating the look of the blog. Something pretty cool is coming soon. 🙂

Dew Tour Chicago 2015

If you follow my blog or any social media sites much you’ll know that photographing action sports has been my dream since I was in high school. It’s the type of thing that drew me to photography when I was a kid. I won’t go into it again, but you can read about it here if you want. Last year I …

Ham City Jam 2015

I’ve posted on this numerous times but I realized after my last blog post on it I didn’t really do anything to follow up with my ambitions of shooting the X Games. Last year I had the opportunity of photographing the Ham City Jam skate competition in Effingham, IL. It was seriously one of the best experiences I’ve had as …

Shutterfest 2015 | Continuing Education

First of all, unless you are a photographer you may not be aware of Shutterfest. Shutterfest is a 2 day workshop for photographers unlike any other available. For example, this year, there were over 2000 photographers, over 250 models and a ton of speakers all to help in further educating ourselves on new trends or practices and growing our portfolio. …
