So you wanna take better pictures?

I frequently get e-mails from people asking me for advice on how to take better pictures.  They often want to know what kind of equipment to purchase and where they might be able to go for classes or lessons, etc.  I certainly don’t mind getting these e-mails, nor do I mind answering them, but it […]


I shot Jennifer Garner!

Well, not exactly.  But doesn’t this girl look just like her?  This is Kayla Kuehn from Ste. Genevieve High School and she came in to our studio for a session yesterday.  I think the resemblance is uncanny.  I told her she could win a look-a-like competition.  She said she gets that a lot.


More shots from Cozumel.

This has been an amazing trip.  I only wish my wife, Rachel could have come along to enjoy it with me.  Perhaps next year . . . I feel like we’ve been shooting non-stop for the past 3 days.  Here are a few more of my favorite shots from this week in Cozumel, Mexico

some recent 2011 Seniors

We’ve been stupid busy lately (and we only have a handful of openings left between now and November – so call ASAP if you’re still wanting to get in for a session yet this year) So I apologize for not posting much recently.  So to make up for it, I’m posting several images from some […]


Hocky Don

Don Perry came over for his senior session this morning. Don’s an avid hockey fan and a devoted player. So it’s no surprise that over half of his images incorporated hockey into them. Here’s some favorites from Don’s session today.


The Schuette Family

Don and Donna and their kids, Hunter and Lauren (and their dog, Sport), came in for a family session this past weekend.  We had such a great time with them.  Super neat family.  Here are a few images from their session.
