The Studio


Earlier this week I got a call from Brian. He and his fiance Debbie are getting married in September. I decided to invite them to my studio for the consultation, which at the time had ONE canvas gallery wrap hanging on the wall. He said sure! So I had three days to get the space presentable and I needed help. Fortunately Diversified Lab was running a special on prints above 16×20. Not only was it inexpensive but they got my order completed in less than 12 hours!

I also got some help from my good friends Holly and Nathan. Holly brought her design expertise and painting skills to the table. And speaking of table… we also hit an antique mall and found a AWESOME dining room set for a steal at Treasure Island on Manchester! Nathan helped out by spending a couple hours in his Sunday morning pickup up the new furniture and helping me drill some holes in my concrete and brick walls.

And as much as I don’t like shopping at Walmart… they did have the cheap 20×30 frames that I couldn’t find anywhere else on such short notice.

I climbed down off the ladder after adjusting the track lighting about 30 minutes before David and Debbie showed up. Just in time to take a very needed shower.

I really enjoyed my time with David and Debbie too. Even if they decide to go with someone else for their photographer, I’m thrilled to have met them. They gave me the incentive to get my butt in gear and make the space what it is. I’m very proud of it.

So here is one shot of the new place… a few more can be found on The Studio page.

Artisan Caffe – Grand Opening


In addition to the Fish Eye Fun camera, I roamed the grand opening of the Artisan Caffe, capturing the fun candid moments that unfolded throughout the evening.

Jordan was literally working past the last minute on stencils for some Artisan Caffe stencils.

It was a little chilly… scratch that… it was FREEZING outside but spray painting in the middle of the party wasn’t a good idea.

StudioX did the new logo design for the caffe… which got a lot of use.

Julie, Mike and little Ryan


Today I delivered the proofs of Julie, Mike, and little Ryan’s family session… which means I can post their pictures! If I can, I like to be there when people see their pictures for the first time. It’s very rewarding seeing the reactions of peoples faces. But it’s always so hard to wait to post the images!

Asย  you can see, we all had a great time. Everybody was super fun and happy and their home was wonderful to shoot in. So much great light. And we fortunate with a nice sunny, not too cold, Saturday afternoon.

We started out with a little tickling…

From what I understand, dinner time is like this a lot. Look’s to me like he just wants a hot dog and some peanuts.

Very fun session Ben! I love the first one, with Mom & Dad cracking up at their little guy. Great moment. And of course the food shots are awesome … not just because of the Mizzou bib, go tigers ; ) … but because it’s so real. He’ll appreciate those when he’s older… or at least Mom & Dad will, as they can make fun of him when he’s 16. Hee hee.
