Yoga Maternity Session

Yoga Maternity Session
I love adding unique sessions to my portfolio, so when K asked if I would be interested in shooting a yoga maternity session I was totally game. I arrived at the yoga studio off of the Yellow Brick Road a bit early, and was able to Micco Sensei, K's yoga instructor.  She was super polite, invited me in for a seat, and made tea for K and I.  After a few minutes of i[...]

Pink Cake Smash Session – Iwakuni Portrait Photographer

Pink Cake Smash Session - Iwakuni Portrait Photographer
I love a beautiful and well planned cake smash session.  Mama came in with the outfits and props all planned out with a beautiful cake made from Dorky Desserts based in Iwakuni.  Avanlee wasn't a big fan of the cake.  We tried getting her to smash her hands in it, and even took a piece out for her to see that it was cake and she could touch and eat it - buuuuut she st[...]

It was so great getting to meet this newlywed couple in Iwkauni.  Both are currently active duty: one in Okinawa and the other in Iwakuni.  While they had time off for Christmas, they really wanted pictures done because they never had any professional pictures taken of themselves.  My favorite pictures to take a engagements, weddings and newlyweds.  I love capturing s[...]

The best part of being a photographer is moving to new areas and meeting other photographers.  This is Ashley Wills of Ashley Wills Salon & Photography.  I love her work and was super excited when we agreed to do a session swap.  She plans to use the photos below to decorate her new home in St. Joseph, MO.

Within the first thirty minutes of landing in Iwakuni, Japan, I met my sponsor's wife, Amanda.  To say this woman was a God-send wouldn't even come close to how thankful I was to have her take care of us as our sponsor.   Jeff and Amanda must be made of magic because we had an apartment with loaner furniture waiting for us that day.  Most people spend WEEKS in TLF wai[...]

Visiting Iwakuni - Iwakuni Family Portrait Photographer
Tomiko contacted me from California in search of a photographer who could capture her family while visiting her family in Japan.  We chose to shoot near the Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni. It's one of the more popular spots in the area as the bridge, river, famous ice cream shops, parks & temples are all within walking distance of each other.  Her oldest was dressed in [...]

Sweetly Styled Urban Shoot - Iwakuni Portrait Photographer
One of the things I love best about photography is the doors it has opened for me, and the people I have met.  Photography can be a very competitive community, and I admit I have that streak in me, but surrounding myself around other great photographers has made it possible for me to meet some of the greatest people.  I love to collaborate with other creatives, and Iw[...]

#teammatestietheknot - New Bern, Atlantic Beach & Emerald Isle Wedding Photographer Does KC
Looking back, Audrey met Mike at the perfect time in her life.  Not only had she recently lost her father, but shortly after meeting Mike, Audrey experienced health problems that left her in the hospital for long periods of time.  Though it was somewhat of a crazy start, Mike stood by Audrey through it all.  This truly set the tone for the way they choose to live life[...]
