Summer Time

This summer I tried to keep my camera handy all the time. My goal was to capture the beauty of summer in a set of images, includng of course "The Field of Yellow" post. These images are part of a small project of mine. The ultimate goal is a set of images for each season. I plan to post the images here as I capture them. I hope everyone likes these.


Weird little flowers that grow in my yard. They look like little aliens coming out the ground.

A Field of Yellow

Chris and I were on our way home from dinner one evening when we passed this field of yellow. It was so bright I had to do a double take as we passed. The next day, I grabbed my camera and drove over to grab some photos. Here are a few shots from that afternoon.

Happy Birthday Blaze!

Today, my beautiful baby sister Blaze turns 21! With it being such a milestone birthday, I figured a blog post was in order.

I'm sorry I am not able to celebrate with you. I want you to know that I love you and I hope that you have wonderful birthday.

I'm sorry we didn't get any photos with Craig but I hope you enjoy these shots of you and Baxter!

We love you!

A New Twist on a Classic

About a month ago I came up with an idea for a project and asked my best friend Alysha to help me out. I gave her only the word "Medusa" and she ran with it! She called her stylist and in three hours walked out of there with an amazing rendition of Medusa's hair. (Thank you Allison, another good friend of ours!)
Unfortunately, mother nature was not smiling upon us that warm summer night. Within minutes of the sun going down, we got all the gear set up outside, get a few test shots and it starts raining. Due to this we were forced to scrap the Medusa idea and improvise.
Lucky for me Alysha is a awesome model and a classic beauty. She made the change from Medusa to pin-up seem effortless! Her tattoos and piercings give the photos that modern twist.

Alysha, thank you so much for posing for me!
Allison, thank you for helping to come up with a hair style solution for my hair brained ideas! Awesome work!

Alysha and her husband Roger are the owners of Graphic Flesh. They are award winning tattoo and piercing professionals. Check them out some time!

I hope everyone enjoys these!

A few test shots of the original concept. One of these days I want to try this shoot again but I don't know if Alysha will be willing to sit for 3 hours to get her hair done again.

And now the classic pin-up girl! I love the look the tattoos and dermals give the images.
