The purpose of this blog is to bring forth the subjects' voices, as well as explain the journey of taking each photo. Photos capture moments in life. My blog will capture the moments and the stories, making it a storybook album for those photographed. This blog will show you the wonder of fine details and bring understanding behind the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

There are some things technology can't touch, photography is one of them. While the gadgets and software programs have evolved, the technique and expertise hasn't. So far, there isn't a program that can tell you what to shoot and if that photo is worth keeping. (I imagine there'll be a day...eventually.) My ideas are safe for now. It's the gadgets that are changing.
Recently, I bought myself a grown-up phone (and along with it, a grown-up cell phone bill). I purchased ...Read Full Post »

A good photo has great lighting, adequate exposure and acute timing. But a great photo has all of those elements plus a bit of character and a dash of spunk.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to photograph my dear friends Elizabeth and Josh. As we traveled to various places across Columbia, Mo., through many wardrobe changes and action attempts, I had one mission in mind – capture personality.
To capture raw emotion, I had to rely on the ...Read Full Post »

It's a fall tradition in St. Louis. The crowds don't need directions. The park is crowded, streets are bumper-to-bumper and everyone knows which direction to look. Scroll through photos of the Balloon Glow and the Great Forest Park Balloon Race.
The balloon glow happens before every balloon race. This year, more than 80,000 people saw 70 bal...Read Full Post »

When you work downtown every day of the week, you start to notice details. You notice the benches in the park, the flags hung on the lamp posts and the intricate carvings on the buildings. These buildings, some of them skyscrapers, are all unique in their own way.
Take the Thomas F. Eagleton United States Courthouse pictured a...Read Full Post »

When it comes to taking risks, I routinely stay on the side of caution. Yeah, there are times you just gotta let loose, but we can't just jump off a bridge or (if you're completely crazy) a plane all the time, right? Well, sometimes even the thrill seeker in me needs to come out and t...Read Full Post »

White sandy beaches, tropical plants, brightly painted houses and an island devoted to a few important guests. If that doesn't describe a piece of paradise, I don't know what does.
My brother and his wife were married on North Captiva Island off the west coast of Florida. The weather was hot, the water was warmer, but the island breeze brought the right amount of coolness to make you feel at ease.

I visited the Wild Bird Sanctuary with a friend the other day. Now, I am no expert when it comes to birds and other raptor species, but what I do know is that these birds are amazing close up.
Take America's bald eagle for example. This bird is covered in layers of dark detailed feathers. The beak and talons are bright yellow and its head is a...Read Full Post »
