I recently had the wonderful pleasure of photographing this super cool couple right in the heart of EaDo (East Downtown), Houston. We roamed around on back streets, I met the pup and kitty and got to document an important time in their lives (my favorite part of it all).

These guys are expecting their first mini into the world soon and I couldn’t be happier for them. It’s been a few months since I have photographed a maternity shoot and am so glad they asked me to do it. It was calming and help to put much into perspective, reminding me how important family is and just …

I recently had the opportunity for a photo shoot of a personal trainer here in Houston. We discussed how she wanted photos to help in her branding incentives such as a website and some other things. I worked to shoot some that would fit more of a horizontally spaced image and then got caught up in just how articulate Carmen was with her technique of lifts and exercises. She sells a mix of $10 Workout Programs on here website here –> http://www.mytrainercarmen.com/ and she is nearing 100,000 followers on Instagram! Look this girl up!


The Kolache Shoppe Website

January 8, 2015

I have been working with a client for a few thick weeks now, working to get their website just right. The Kolache Shoppe came to me after they’d watched Red Dessert Dive unfold and open its doors.

The first time I talked with this couple, Randy and Lucy, who owned Kolache Shoppe, I knew it would be a project I would love. They were good hearted people, Type-A personalities and they knew what they wanted. Albeit, it’s easy to get into the …

A couple of months ago I got an opportunity to begin photographing events for the Houston Rockets. It came when an amazing creative nazi named Jose Lopez attended this conference I photographed, filmed and spoke at here in Houston for all creatives/graphic designers of Major League Baseball, as put on by Chris Garcia from the Houston Astros, the MLC Connect Conference. Chris had invited the neighboring professional sports teams in Houston. ‘Round these parts, creatives stick together. #bettertogether, I digress. Jose, the Creative Director for the Rockets said that he thought I knew a thing or two about taking photos and wanted me to come try my hand …

I had the absolute pleasure to photograph the marriage of a woman near and dear to my heart. If you’ve been following my blog, you probably saw the Engagement Shoot of Courtney and Kyle, where I go on to explain our days of Sim Farm in the 90’s and other middle schooler escapades. We met at a Mr. Gatti’s in Abilene, Texas with our parents who were good friends. Geezus, I never thought I would be photographing her beautiful wedding with her beautiful family in Montgomery Texas more than fifteen years later. I would have made her give me all the tickets she won on the …
