Roxy

The other night I tried out my studio set up for the first time. I am ecstatic that drawings from my notes on my iPhone are now real. It's one of the best feelings. Having something in your head and being able to execute it in real life with actual colors and people.

 We also experimented with a more cinematic style for a Stranger Things based set of images. 

Thank you, Roxy, for being a great model.

Today We Rebel

 KB and Trip Lee brought so much energy to the crowd, making the Hometeam tour a show for the books. It was a wonderful experience being able to worship with fellow believers while having the time of our lives. TODAY WE REBEL.

Judah & the Lion

I am working on becoming better at blogging. Over the next few weeks I will be posting sets of some newer work from shows, as well as portrait sessions. Below are some of my favorite images from Judah & the Lion in Louisville. If you ever get the chance, be sure to check these guys out. They bring a high energy set full of what they love to call "booty-poppin' banjo music".

All We Know of Heaven...

As some of you might know, the band Pvris recently released their new album All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell. This album and the artistry is darker, and so inspiring. As I listened to the album fully for the first time, I knew that I had to take those lyrics and create. My friend Anthony and I decided to base a shoot off that album. This was our third collaboration together, and it's probably my favorite. Below are images from our shoot.

Cave Hill Cemetery

The other day Anthony and I went to Cave Hill cemetery to take some eerie pictures. There's something so lovely, yet somber about being in a cemetery. Very pleased with these photographs.

Collab with Anthony

The other day I finally met Anthony Tran, and we were able to hang out/collab on a shoot together. We have followed each other's work for a while so I was stoked to be able to work with him on something. We went to party city to get some balloons to add some color to the backdrop, giving me major Paramore vibes. So happy with this "aesthetic". After, we went to chow wagon to take pictures with all the carnival lights. It was a day well spent.

Bailey

I haven't been this excited about a shoot since Waverly.  I had ideas about doing this shoot months ago. I briefly sketched in a journal what I wanted the mood of the photos to be and I am very excited to share the final result with you all. Narrowing all the images down was so difficult and I will eventually share more over time, but for now here are my favorites. There are metaphors in some photos, the meaning behind them is something I hold very dear to my heart. It's like Kitchen Sink. If you know that song then you will understand.

What might these pictures mean to you?  What does your heart feel when you see these?

Thank you to all the musical artists that inspired me to create these, and thank you, Bailey, for being the best model I could have asked for in this shoot. I can't thank you enough. 

Vickie

Vickie has such a sweet spirit, and she is so fun to photograph. I've been in a creative rut for the past 3 1/2 months, but this shoot finally kicked me back into the groove of inspiration. Excited for what 2017 holds. 

TY & BENJAMIN

Had a wonderful time photographing these two.

Excited with how these turned out!
