Mike and I (you’ll see a LOT more of Mike in a few months when I unveil his epic studio recording documentary project) have been trying since February to get together for a documentary session with his family. We finally got it in just a few weeks before Cole heads to Baylor. We made (so, so yummy) pizza, played some Farkel, laughed a lot, and generally had a great time. If my kids end up like these three are when they hit their teen years, I’ll definitely call it a success.

Clark Family

I might have more photos of the Clark kids than I do of my own kids. OK, not really…but I have had the honor of photographing all three of these awesome kids since they were each born. We spent some time playing at the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center and shot some film while we were there.


What started as a way to get some Christmas photos of my kids on a cold day has turned in to something really exciting. I showed my FACES project to a couple friends, and they FLIPPED OUT: they had to have one of their own kids. I spend a few minutes with each person in your family. We talk, joke, and I capture those unique expressions that make you, YOU. You get a beautiful, BIG canvas print of several faces of your loved ones. These sessions are also GREAT for headshots, social media profiles, etc. So contact us today to […]

Dondzila Family

So here’s a funny story for you. Many years ago, I called my new friend Andy. You young kids won’t understand this, but at the time we had what we called land-line phones. They did, however, have a new technology called Caller ID. My name popped up on Andy’s home phone caller ID. His wife, Laura, inquired who was this girl, Stacey, calling her husband?!? It’s been WAY too long since I had the opportunity to photograph Andy, Laura, O, and G. Two boys & two girls in this family creates a lot of life.   Portra 400 | Mamiya […]

Sarah and Marc – Engaged

I got the pleasure of meeting Sarah a year or so ago when we invaded my neighbor’s book binding place for our location. At the time, she was running her business, Preston Paper from Dallas. She has moved to KC, and she and are going to get married next spring! We had a fantastic time at Marc’s business north of the river — so many cool places to shoot. Congrats guys!     Nikon F100 | Kodak Ektar
