Daniel Renstrom //

I love me some Daniel Renstrom. What a great buddy_one who i always get excited to work on little projects & hang out with! I’m no musician, but its cool how two different artists can sit down for lunch and get excited about collaborating on all kinds of ideas. What a cool role model he has served me this past year! He wanted a couple shots that he could use for the web/promo stuff. He has a nice smile right? Haha, but seriously_go check him out at:


Family Pictures // October 2010

So this one was for the mother…after all, she is the queen of the household! I couldn’t be more thankful for my family! We had a great time shooting at a couple different locations in Raleigh! And as you will see below i chose not to post the ones of just me_just because. Love you guys!

Ila Camacho // senior portrait session

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot a senior portrait session with Ila Camacho at some cool locations in Raleigh. She definitely made my job pretty easy_definitely a sense of what to do when the camera is pointed at her. All of the shots are 100% natural lighting. I’m stoked by all the opportunities as of late to photography people. I truly find joy in the process. Thanks for taking a second to check out some of the work!
