Last month I had the opportunity to shoot one of my best bud's two month old daughter while I was out visiting and working in Kansas City.  My friend Josh and I have been friends and fishing partners since we stumbled on each other one faithful day while we were fishing one of the local rivers.  We recognized each other from several of our 8th grade classes and hit it off pretty quick as most our peers were in to other activities.

Luckily for us it started ...

However, we reach triple digits in the summer and negative digits in the winter.For this week's post, we shot an Engagement Session up in the hills where the temperature hovered around zero degrees fahrenheit.  With Chantell and Lance's ...

I am excited to bring another behind the scenes look into the depths of my imagination and provided detailed educational resources to how I accomplished the concept I had painted in my mind.  Feel free to read this post in its entirety or simply scroll down if you want jump straight to the video.The concept of this shoot came from the inner workings of my imagination some time ago in dream.  I realize this sounds cliche, but each of us knows how amazing and terrifying our dreams can be.  Nonetheless, I was fortunate to remember this particular dream out of all the ones I commonly forget. I had the desire to write it down in my ...
