I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to see my cousins rock out recently. Alorah (bass and vocals) and Keller (drums) are both students at Austin's School of Rock. I went down to see their seasonal performance, and really didn't have high hopes for quality or actual entertainment value. I was...

I am lucky enough to be taking on a new adventure and challenge this week. I am visiting the West Coast to shoot a women's conference in Sonoma, California. It is time for a well overdue Haley adventure. 

This is a type of photography I haven't done before on this scale, and I am excited to broaden m...

She was on time (swoon), was open for anything I was willing to try (double swoon), and I couldn't find a bad angle on her if I tried (you can just scrape me off the floor now). She participates in debutante pageant...

Adam has been a good friend to me for several years. He was always nice enough to walk me back to my dorm when I was out after dark in college, we had many late night runs to the dining hall, and spent many nights watching movies and studying for exams.  He even helped me move a few times, which is...

For the first time I am working on submitting my work to different publications and seeing what sort of response I get. I was very honored to get a few of my senior portraits featured on a couple of Instagram pages geared towards senior photography. I am loving that I am confident enough with my wor...

This was my first experience as a second shooter, and before I get any further into this I want to give a big shout out to Ariana Ruehle for taking me under her wing and letting me help out with this wedding.  I look forward to learning more from her and getting some wedding experience in the proces...
