Ryan: Class of 2015, Downtown West Palm Beach, South Florida Senior Portrait Session

Ryan is such an awesome young man. He’s a super laid back, killer wrestler with a heart of gold. Even though Ryan and I just “met” earlier this year at church, I’ve actually known Ryan most of his life. I used to take care of him in our church nursery when I was in high school and he was a little kid, haha! But…

JD: PBA Class of 2014, Downtown West Palm Beach, South Florida Portrait Session

I first met JD about two years ago at my church. What struck me the most about him was how passionate and devoted he was, and still is, to Jesus. Over the course of the past couple of years, I’ve gotten to know JD a lot better and yet he still impresses me each and every day. He really is an amazing person, and anyone…

{Sneak Peek} Park Vista Cobra Country 5K [gallery is live!]

This past Saturday I shot the Park Vista High School inaugural Cobra Country 5K, an event set up to raise funds for the super talented Park Vista Cross Country Team. The senior & junior classes of Park Vista High School are very near and dear to my heart because all the little kids I used to babysit when I was in high school are…

Vi Living: Lantana Corporate Session

Vi Living is a beautiful independent & assisted senior living facility located in Lantana, Florida. I happen to go to church with the Executive Director, Penny Smith. When she contacted me to do the facilities annual group photo and updated headshots, I couldn’t have been happier. The staff at Vi Living was great to work with and I had a wonderful time capturing them….

A Behind the Scenes Wedding Story

For the Malone wedding I photographed in July, Jackie of Photostyle Boutique was my fantastic second shooter. Jackie and I met a couple of years ago as we both got involved in PARK Project, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to Perform Acts of Random Kindness. When I learned that Jackie was also a photographer, I knew we would be instant friends. Our similar…

BBCC Women’s Luncheon 2013

I have been attending Boynton Beach Community Church for 12 years now, and one of the main perks of moving back home to Palm Beach County this year is getting to attend this great church every single Sunday. My church is awesome and full of amazing, faithful women. Each year we have a women’s luncheon on the first Sunday in December to celebrate each…

Winter Photo Challenge Week 4: Prism Photography

I am going to go ahead and be really honest here: I am terrible at prism photography.  If you want to know what prism photography is, I recommend you go read this. The short version is that you take a prism, yes those triangle things from elementary school science class, and hold them up to the lens to manipulate your picture. Here is the…

Forgiveness

‘Cause we all make mistakes sometimes And we’ve all stepped across that line But nothing’s sweeter than the day we find Forgiveness, forgiveness And we all stumble and we fall Bridges burn in the heat of it all But nothing’s sweeter than the day, sweeter than the day we call out for forgiveness — Toby Mac

Unstoppable

We make our moves in mysterious ways We’d rather burn up, then stick to the shade Not of this world so we live on the run We’ve got our heart set on what is to come We are, we are (we are unstoppable) We are, we are (for the impossible) We are, we are (we are the kingdom come) That’s who we are, that’s…

Winter Photo Challenge Week 3: Rembrandt Triangle with Soft Window Light

Last week I missed out on week two of the Photography Awesomesause’s Winter Photo Challenge 2013-2014, but I wasn’t about to let that deter me from getting back into the challenge. This week the challenge was to get that soft window lighting for an indoor portrait. I will admit that this posed a challenge for me for two reasons: 1) I don’t seem to get…
