Leon and Nell came to me for their 50th Anniversary portrait. It is always fun and an honor to create a portrait of a couple who has spent the majority of their lives together. We had a nice time talking and getting to know each other. They were a delight to work with and it was an privilege to create a portrait that I know will be around for at least another 50 years.
Lois and Dan were absolutely a joy to work with. We started our engagement session out at the lake to get some green goodness – watch out for stickers! It was a blast putting them together and letting the “new family” play and have good time. We moved to the studio to finish up with some more formal type engagement pictures, were we got some precious pictures of Camryn and her step-father-to-be Dan.
Congratulations to the Lois and Dan. It was a joy to work with you.

Cindy is a friend of my wife’s, and it was fun to see the relationship between Cindy and Bobby bud and grow. I opted not to photograph the wedding, but instead offered to take some nice wedding pictures of the two of them after the grand event. I thought this would occur in one the neighboring wheat fields. But the wedding day was gray and rainy so we retreated to the safety of the studio. I love my studio space! Unfettered by the constrains of weather, we were able to create some wonderful formal wedding pictures of the two of them.
Congratulations to Bobby and Cindy on their wedding.

Many of you may recognize Buck and Greg Lucy. They run the farm supply store here in Purcell.
They brought the whole gang in around Christmas time for this wonderful studio family portrait.
This is another example of our family composite. Ever since we started offering these for our families, they have been flying out the door.
The Clark family came in on a promotion I had. After photographing the young girl in her softball uniform, we had the chance to do some pictures with the family dog. And you thought a boy and his dog was cute!
Adrian came in early to talk about her senior pictures. That’s always a great idea. We got a chance to talk about her interests and that created some ideas in my mind. The most novel idea was the “floating pictures”. Adrian likes photography, and has some nice macro work in her portfolio. Athletes are always easy to portray – just use some sports equipment. Artists and photographers are harder. I wanted to create something where her images floated around her. I photographed her against my green screen and removed the background and the floor. She sent me some of her images and I blended those into a computer generated scene. The results are really cool.
Another thing I have been doing more of in my senior picture sessions is a “glamor” look. Using very specific lighting and props to create a very glamorous, mysterious image. Just because they are senior pictures doesn’t mean they have to be boring. The results were great. Thanks for coming by for your senior pictures, Adrian.
Collin came in for his senior pictures like a lot of guys do – hesitant and not really sure about this whole picture thing. But we got to talking and he relaxed and he had a good time. His senior pictures came out great and he and his mom loved them.
My favorite image is the third one. Collin had his guitar out and I’m thinking I have the perfect creation for this. The image was taken in my studio. The bridge is about 200 miles away over the Red River. You gotta love digital.
Collin will graduate from Noble High school. Congratulations Collin.
