It took a while, but I finally got a chance to shoot photos with the lovely Makenna. And it started before she was even born. But look at that face and that expression. How blessed am I to be able to capture that cuteness.
Three years ago, I decided to do a website celebrating my city of Louisville, KY though my photographic work. Not exactly a new idea, but I wanted to do something that would reflect my version of Louisville so, with a few dollars and some WordPress knowhow, it became a reality, thanks to the Strobist, David…
When we got the chance to work with the McDaniel family I was kid-in-a-candy-shop happy because we got a chance at a new location. The extended family had a small farm near Fern Creek that we were able to use for the shoot

Back when I decided to turn my passion into what would become a career, I sought out subjects that weren’t my family. Oh, they were good enough to pose for me whenever I asked, especially my son and daughter, I figured that was too easy. After all, they wouldn’t be honest and tell me that…
Sometimes when we shoot portraits, we build in some extra time so the subject gets some different looks from their shoots. If everyone agrees, we can put some real variety into their portfolio and that’s what happened when we got a chance to work with Taylor.
A few weeks ago, when I was sharing tips on how to take great fireworks photos, I also lamented the loss of the Waterfront Independence Festival that used to occur every July 4th on the Great Lawn at Waterfront Park.
Families with small children are always awesome to photograph. And when the family wants to use a location I’ve never shot in before, so much the better. So when the Burton’s said they wanted to go to Bernheim Forest, we were quick to say okay.
