Sheets Family // Fort Wayne, IN

Return clients, they make the world go 'round. I'm grateful to this couple for making me their photographer of choice. Travis and Jessica have booked me for their engagement session that we did on the south end of Fort Wayne with some South Calhoun architecture. They also booked me for their wedding in 2014 to be seen here: Jessica + Travis Ive watched their family grow with the addition of their son, Stellan they have made quick work to create a modern family, and new home to embody love and I could be more pleased with how these images.

This was the first of the "mini sessions" I have offered, like the previous session fall colors were a must and at this time Franke Park is a personal favorite of mine. Seeing Stellan smile and laugh with Jessica and Travis makes doing this all the more worthwhile, and not to leave out Colin for the help. I am forever grateful for their continuous support and good times. ...on a side note, Jessica has a foul mouth! Just jokes. Thank you for reading and enjoy your week.

Beeson Family // Fort Wayne, IN

As some of you may remember the maternity shoot I did with Lindsay and Nate almost a year ago before baby Alex was just days before making his way into this world. If not, check this shoot out: L + N Maternity // Fort Wayne, IN We decided to revisit the same location for this shoot and I got to meet Alex. The sprinkling of rain started about five minutes before our shoot but we were able to find tree cover that worked. This shoot was right before Alex's 1st birthday and Halloween so photographing him in his Amon Amarth inspired viking costume was crucial. He may have been a little unsure of the leaves on the ground but a visit from his Uncle Todd I was able to capture some incredible smiles and good times all around.

As always I want to thank Nate and Lindsay for being repeat clients and I wish them well in the future. Im thinking this wont be the last we see of Alex. Thank you for reading and stay tuned.

T&J // Plymouth, IN

Justin Jordan, It's important that I use his full name because every one of the 3000 emails we exchanged was signed with his full name. I would like it more if it said "Dominic Toretto" but that could be misleading or at least lets me know he will never live his life a quarter mile at a time with a name like Justin Jordan but I can relate to the initials. He booked me from suggestions on an Indiana local Subaru forum and I'm grateful to have met him. Additionally, during our client meeting I met his better half..his "Letty Ortiz" if you will. I'm not sure if she has ever had a 2G buy in or raced an RX7 in the desert while saying "seeeeee ya!" while hitting the NOS button in her S14 but either way she is a great addition to their small garage, and rumor has it that if you cant find the right tool in their garage, you dont belong near a car.

They wanted a simple wedding session with formals not over posed and we kept it that way. I'm not sure if Plymouth is the mosquito capital of world but I will tell you first hand it's a gnarly reality and I'm thanking my lucky stars for calamine lotion and truly great clients. I appreciate both Tammy and Justin Jordan very much. They are easy to make laugh and have a great chemistry and big hearts. They made sure I was well taken care of and accommodated. I'm posting this session in Black & White(a though there are more color images) but these stood out to me, maybe its a phase but I'll go with it. Thank you for reading. Enjoy your weekend.

Heaven Jacobs // South Whitley, IN

To my daughter with love. It is amazing to me(all those who love you) how fast you have grown into a young woman. Independent of your own life, your destiny and your ever so important future. Never ever give up your drive for life, never take anything for granted and always strive for your best - forever pushing until you capture that last star in your sky. I love you very much and I thank you for this session.

This session was done at the Burkholder Homestead in South Whitley Indiana. I was long over due for a session with my very own but I knew it had to be just right. Among the bugs and the sun, missed golden hour by about 45 minutes but nothing that an awesome orange chair and a Alien Bee couldn't cure. I'm extremely pleased and that smile cant be beat, but maybe Im biased. I will have a few more sessions to blog coming up. I appreciate you all. Enjoy your weekend.

Justin Lim - Old Five and Dime Sign Co - Studio // Fort Wayne, IN

The question is...what has Jeremy been doing? I haven't posted anything on this site since last year which seems par for the course anymore. I haven't promoted myself much due to full time shooting real estate and basically haven't had the time. Now that has slowed down Ive discovered the joy in a Fuji X100. Such a great little camera. Its made me slow down a bit and realize whats around me to create, to shoot and to make photographs. Its been an eye opening experience. I will post up a series of those shots in a few months. I'm sure this isn't the first time Ive said this, nor will it be the last but I plan on updating this site a little more as sessions come in.

Justin contacted me to do a session for a poster for his local art show at a spot called Fancy & Staple. I had yet to see this old wood shop converted to his studio so hey why not? but to add to that I'm continually humbled by the fact that he has supported me and my work for upwards of 4 years since him and I became friends. There are a lot of local photographers but he doesn't hesitate to contact me and for that I'm grateful. His work stands above most Ive seen doing things the write way. All by hand. No stencils, No vinyl, Done right and the way it should be. Here's to Justin. Thank you.

Salton Sea // California

What can I say that hasn't already been said about the Salton Sea? This engineering disaster was at one point a hot spot of boating, fishing and resort life for many in the 1950s. I have had this location on my list for a long time. I started photographing abandoned architecture and location and the like since before I started doing portraiture. Its what I consider "personal work" The history, the story and whats left after have always drawn me in and the Salton Sea is no different. For so long it seemed unattainable that I would reach this destination...and here we are. Just for reference feel free to browse Youtube for documentaries. Well worth the watch.

Arriving on the North West end of the Sea(North Shore) you could see the shimmer of a large body of water tucked away in the mountains surrounded by farm land and desert. Going a little further South you could begin to see the barren remains. Straight away my mind kept going back to the scenes in my years of research of what this place was, at one point bigger than Palm Springs and the Rat Pack and other big names frequented. I was amazed at the amount of Tilapia carcasses lining the shore, as well as the amount of birds that in habit these waters. The beach was made of salt deposit and fish bones. Quite a sight...I would say "breath taking" but that was the smell. We pushed on to Bombay Beach which was a somewhat inhabited community. Onward to the south end of the lake and up the west end to Salton City. We covered the outer perimeter of the lake. The town was set to thrive at one point and now left with $7,000 lots and empty streets. I generally try not to "toot my own horn" but the images produced on this trip are some of my favorite of my career.

Thank you for looking and enjoy
