"Heather, Sophisticated"...

A fun photograph from a portrait session several years ago. As I often try to do, I wanted to create a timeless photograph but I wanted a mix of sophistication with this pose. What you don't see is the fun laughter before and after this frame. :) Comments welcome.

"Dreams in Color"...

One question that we often ask ourselves, 'do we dream in color'? Maybe we don't have to dream with our eyes closed. Why not dream with your eyes open? Here's to your dreams with your eyes open.

Several years ago, I was commissioned to photograph this model. We spent a few hours at this location and this was one of my favorite concepts. I hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

"Delightful Outtakes"...

A few years ago, I was honored and commissioned to photograph this vibrant and friendly soul, alongside one of her passions, of course: cars! JoAnne and Robert are one of the friendliest couples you'll ever meet. They're always finding something to laugh about and their passion for cars (especially Porsches) can keep anyone entertained for hours. Even though I titled this photograph an outtake, it's reaches far beyond. The details of this photograph tells such a wonderful story of both JoAnne and Robert - always fun, laughing, humble, compassionate and always in close proximity of a special car. And good luck finding a spec of dirt in their garage! (jealous)

"Rural Arkansas"...

Highways provide access to visual, timeless treasures that you can't often experience from the Interstates. This single photograph provides a richness of rural flavor, from the alluring curve which leads through the community, to the rural school zone on the highway, to the homestead with the detached garage and larger barn. You may be able to see the old pickup truck in the left-side stall of the barn.

Location: near high school, Bigelow, Arkansas.

"Out of the Shadows"...

Nature so easily mixes water and light to creating something wonderfully pleasing to the senses.
