Melissa and Owen...what to say..what to say? This was my first official wedding. I really didnt know what to expect however I know that I was shaking like a leaf all day. Melissa believed in me so I did the best I could. I got home and reviewed the images and I really was pleased. For my first wedding I think I did a fair job. Melissa and Owen were super happy and really at the end of the day thats all that matters. After it was all said and done I know I need some work but progress will come with time and this wont be my last wedding..thats for sure. Thank you Melissa and Owen for the opportunity and I wish you the best.

Ethan Myer is the son of a fellow co-worker who approached me about doing a session of her son. I mentioned we should wait until the leaves were falling and we could do some outfit changes and she was all about it. The session was a lot of fun. One thing I learned when shooting children is that you never really know what theyre going to do so be on your toes and never take the camera out of your hands cause the moment you do... you'll miss "that" moment. Enjoy.

Hannah Bonaparte was approaching her senior year of high school and her mother, Sandra came to me asking if id want to do a session and I said sure. Hannah had a modeling portfolio which for me being new to all of this was intimidating to say the least but overall we had a good time. I was able to capture quite a few good shots. Thank you Hannah. I wish you the best for the future

Ive known Brian for many years through one of my first full time jobs and an adult. Him and I used to joke around more than most of my friends and really it helped the day go by faster in an otherwise lame warehouse job! He approached me to do a portrait session for him just cause hes a little vain(hahaha gotcha B) We set off for Columbia Street, downtown Fort Wayne. The setting was a good mix of cold and atmosphere. I really enjoyed this session. Thank you Brian.

This was the start of my photography career as a freelance person. I have been taking photographs since 1997 for school, bands friends etc but I figure if Im going to be good at this then I should jump in with both feet. I approached Lance, whom I used to work with and told him that I was doing some work as a photographer and that I knew him and his wife just had a baby and Id be stoked to come by and photograph the baby for nothing more than a handshake and some word of mouth kinda business. I dont know if doing a new born shoot right off the bat was really my flavor. I wasnt really ready given the lighting and Zoe was really sleepy so working around that wasnt too bad. I guess looking back Im glad I did it and Im here to say "IM HERE!"
