If you're into photos that feel as real as you are, you want your memories made to last, and you'd like to make a new friend in the process, keep scrolling, I can't wait to meet you.

Sometimes, being a photographer’s son means humoring your stepmom and sucking it up while she documents another chapter of your life.

When Morgan first contacted me in regards to her senior session, I had no clue how much fun I was about to get in to! Morgan was a graduating senior from Clarksville High School, Clarksville, TN, and has a killer sense of fashion. I noticed it as soon as she walked into Starbucks for our […]

When I first met Kara, then later met Morgan, I had no clue they were good friends from Clarksville High School. As soon as I found out, I knew they’d be perfect for a senior photoshoot I had been envisioning for awhile. A bucket list shoot was finding a few friends to photograph with a travel […]

I first met Kara at my booth during an event at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center in Clarksville, TN and was so excited when she approached me about senior photos!

It’s a bit overdue, but when you’re just getting back from deployment, moving cross country and settling into a new unit, with a new training schedule, life gets away from you! So here’s my blog post (finally!) about my incredible Luxe in Las Vegas workshop experience. It was such a privilege to get to know […]

I love a girl that isn’t afraid to be herself. That being said, you can understand why I absolutely loved having Bekah in front of my camera! She’s confident, spunky, gorgeous and musically talented. I absolutely love incorporating a senior’s interest into their session. From her Batman and Robin tank top, to her stunning blue […]
