Daughter of Autumn

Artistic, Portraits

This post is long overdue. Unfortunately (or fortunately) life moves at a quicker than quick pace around here, so this post has been sitting in my Drafts for 4 months. But, here it is, finally. Thanks for your patience.

This concept came to me around 4 years ago. My dad had been out hunting and had taken down a small buck. I saw the antlers, and into my mind’s eye flashed an image of a woman with the antlers adorning her head. It has gradually fleshed itself out into a “Four Seasons” series. But I knew I wanted my models to have a more feral look to them, as opposed to just being pretty.

I was finally able to assemble all of the supplies, find the right girl, and make the shoot happen…well, I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

So now I give you…Daughter of Autumn.

Potato Patch Shootout – Floral Steampunk

Artistic, Portraits

I am a member of The Potato Patch, which is a group of photographers located here in Southeastern Idaho.

Occasionally we’ll come together to do a themed shoot.

This one was organized and styled by the group’s founder, talented photographer of Vanilla Tree Photography, Catherine Auger.

I had so much fun! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session.

My sister and her ’67 Impala cosplay

Artistic, Portraits

It’s been a while, I know.  I have had this bad habit lately of letting life get in the way of my photographic plans and efforts.  It’s a habit I need to break.

My sister is a die-hard Supernatural fan.

(Let’s be honest – I like the show quite a bit, too.)

Recently she informed me that she finally had all of the pieces assembled for her cosplay – Dean Winchester’s 1967 Chevrolet Impala.

So of course we photographed it.


Really, the way she put the outfit together was quite brilliant.


This shot (below) is probably my favorite from our session.

She looks like such a badass!






For me, good cosplay is really all in the details.

As far as I’m concerned, this one is spot on.

And I had an awesome time photographing it.

Kimberly and the Dress of Awesome

Artistic, Miscellaneous, Portraits, Proofs

Can I just say…this is one of the most fun shoots I’ve ever had the privilege of doing.  This girl is a positively brilliant seamstress, among other things, so if you need any custom sewing done let me know and I’ll put you in touch with her.

She’s also a total natural in front of the camera.

(She “blames” that on watching “too much” America’s Next Top Model…lol)
