Even on the bitter cold days, it's cool to have other options to capture a session.

A local coffee shop, bar, restaurant,  etc. Whatever the case is, there's so many options to be creative.

In this case, we were fortunate that Brandon owns this own restaurant and we had the entire place on a closed day👍

Back when I was playing with speedlights and @magnetmod products capturing another passion I have.

Growing up in South Dakota, most people were Vikings or Packers fans. My family never were big sports fans, but I remember being 11 years old and watching the 49ers vs Bengals Superbowl with my Dad. That same year the first Nintendo came out and Tecmo Bowl (NFL Game.) I loved running Montana all the way back to the endzone and throwing a TD pass to Rice to the other endzone! If you played that game you know what I'm talking about.. ha. The one sport and sports team I love. Everytime I see that uniform with those colors I get that anxious excitement. I LOVE MY NINERS!

Now they're back in the Superbowl today!

Go Niners!

Everyone have a safe Superbowl Sunday!

We learn class, honesty, faith, and the outlook on what life is from the ones before us.

Couldn't be more excited for Neil's future with two great roll models leading the way.

Hometown moments from last weeks sessions in Aberdeen, SD.

Before moving away from my home town in 2011, I didn't realize I had a passionate light pulsating inside me. I've had an artists mind when it came to pencil and paper growing up, but never imagined it being visualized from lens to composition.

I've heard lots of stories of professional photographers getting there first camera as a youngin and developed their style for years.

That's not my story.

Living in Denver, I stumbled apon this locked energy because of a social media challenge. Yep.. A friend (Thanks Kim👍) turned me on to it. Taking a picture of something, utalizing a editing app for the image, and writing something about it. I believe I did this for 30 days straight. By the end of this challenge I was ordering my first entry level dslr camera. That's when I turned that key and unleashed something I have never felt in my life.

Looking back, I see it as a "healthy obsession" of photographing images of places, things, people, pets, and self portraits. Soon, my vision was different. I found myself constantly looking at parks, old buildings, down alleys, while driving to my destinations. It was like a radar constantly going off! Learning editing styles through research, YouTube tutorials, and trial & error I came to realize soon that this is something I wanted to grow for the rest of my days. It still didn't dawn on me that I could do this for a career until people started asking me to capture their life with my vision.

Now, several years into my photography buisness it baffles me how blessed I was to find that key when I did.

Was a pleasure capturing all you beautiful people (and classic car) when I was home last week. To create at a place with so much history for me is something magical.

Winter sessions are becoming a favorite.

Being an adult, I don't recall to many times when I'm in shin deep snow while having a great time. Not thinking about the cold, getting my socks wet, but living in that moment of the next shot.

If that doesn't bring me back to a kid mindset of climbing parking lot snow hills and digging snow forts, then I might as well put my moon boots (with bread bag linings) away and leave the kid in me behind for good.

Was a blast capturing Katie, Bryon, and Max's family photos!

They wanted great fall colors, but after that first "one day" snow storm the location didn't look as colorful as we hoped.

I decided to use a flash with a CTB (color temperature blue) gel and adjust the temperature in camera to give the background more of a warm look.

Another reason why I love what I do🙏

With the right lighting and lens you can utilize any location to what you are trying to create. Just another reason why I love what I do.

It's that time of year! Cooling down, leaves change, great sunsets, etc.

Although I'm a sucker for these last warm days, these cool evenings have been a nice change. The feel and smell always transports me to past memories of this time of year. And with those memories always comes a sense of gratitude for the life I get to show up for today.

I have a few spots open this month and am booking up my October for this beautiful time of year. If you or someone you know could utilize some great professional pictures I'd love to get you in the books!

At one time I couldn't differentiate the adult from the child😂 Like father, like daughter. These two are perfect for each other.

Being strong isn't just lifting up a Ford Pinto at a tough man competition. It's going through the hardship of life and living through it to the best of your ability. It's lending a ear, hug, voice, etc to someone that's overwhelmed in their own drowning fear of lifes downs.

Strength is mentally, spiritually, physically, faithfully. If you are feeling weak in any of these areas, rest assure. The sun will come up again and you will have another 24 to take actions towards that strength.

Give yourself a break today.. You deserve it.

The beauty of off-camera flash is you can practice and create your vision from anywhere like this small spot in an apartment.

So, if you are starting with lighting, I challenge you to ask friends, spouse, etc to hang out while you practice and play around with different lights. I know for me early on I used myself as a subject to learn all kinds of technics.

In the mass of all I've learned, the biggest advice I would give myself early on is
practice! practice! practice!

It's not the "IF" that gives me contentment.. It's the "NOW." I remember growing up thinking "IF I just lived somewhere else, had her as my girlfriend, had that job, that car, $1,000, then I'd be good." And even if I got those things it would quickly fade to the next "IF" on the list to that empty feeling again.

Now growing through the wisdom of experience I've found that it's the practice of the "NOW" and plugging in the power within to a power greater than.

When I can do this, whether I have all those things or none, It doesn't matter. Because I'm living in the spirit and have satisfaction, contentment, confidence, and peace all right now.

This has been my experience. Very grateful for those feelings that got me to these feelings.

Saying goodnight at her front door of your first date. That excited giddy feeling as you walk to your car thinking "I can't wait to see her again." Not even imaging the third date let alone marriage.. Just the next time. Then on this porch looking back at the history rewinding back to that day you think.. I knew it all along.

Senior pictures are a great way to look back at special times in life. I guarantee you, Dan will look back at these images 30 years from now and wish he could grow locks like that still.
