The Light is getting really good on the beach this time of year. Great time for a family beach portrait.

8/15/2014  Fun Wedding Pics

While always trying to make wedding pictures fun, you never know what I might come up with. I still have some fall wedding dates open, contact me for pricing and openings!

It''s that time of year, picking through last years images to update my website. I update once a year with fresh images. I like to show some new images in my galleries every year.

I am shooting the Blue Marlin Grand Championship fishing tournament this week at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Al. This is a huge event with a 1 million dollar plus payout this year. The weigh in on Saturday is a great spectator event for this area. Come on out to see some huge fish and have a lot of fun! Hope to see you there!

Spring Wedding Season is now in full swing. I still have some prime fall dates open for beach weddings in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Alabama and Pensacola Beach Florida! Contact me for pricing information and availability!

I will be at The Wharf Boat Show today photographing the VIP Guests entering on the Red Carpet. I''''m looking forward to a fun day and doing a red carpet type event.

I photograph a lot of extended family sessions each year. Proper lighting technique and photoshop expertise are crucial for a successful end result. Knowing that many families don''''t all get together that often, hiring an experienced photographer is important to get quality images you can cherish for years to come. If your extended family is coming to the beach this summer, please contact me for my extended family session pricing.

4/17/2013  Sunset on the Beach

The sunset light on the beautiful white sand beaches here in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Alabama is hard to beat. Letting the kids do their thing, combined with the great lighting, and look at what you get.

The lighting this time of year is wonderful. If you are here on spring break, take advantage of the lighting this time of year. While the light is always beautiful on our white sand beaches, spring affords some of the best! I still have sessions open this month, let me know if you are interested booking a family session while you are here!

I want to share the billboard I shot for The Wharf Boat Show coming up at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Al. on April 25th-28th. While most of my work is done on the beach, I still shoot advertising for some very choice (and great clients). If you are in town that weekend, it will be a great event to attend!

4/3/2013  Pets Are Family Too!

Just a reminder that pets are allowed on the beach on Ft. Morgan if you would like to include them in you family portrait!

The weather is warming up, FINALLY! It makes you just want to run on the beach like these two. If you are coming down next week for SB, I have a few evening sessions still open for family portraits. Take advantage of the great lighting this time of year!

There''s nothing that compares to the great light on the white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast! The sand provides it''s own natural fill to compliment the late day sun.

3/15/2012  Sunset on the Bay!

You don''t always need to see a face to capture the emotion of the moment, but a nice sunset always helps!

3/14/2012  Back to the blog!
