Being Us

Welcome to our Portrait website! If you are looking for wedding info and wedding photos you are currently at the wrong place, sorry! But I do have a site dedicated to my wedding work so please feel free to hop over there and have a look around: This site concentrates on showing off our portrait work of high school seniors, families, children and new borns.

I started my business in Bloomington back in 1988 at that time doing full time commercial work that often took me to locations all around the state. I was doing a variety of commercial assignments for ad agencies, designers, corporate clients and architects. In 1999 I began a shift towards a more retail oriented photography client concentrating on the photographing of weddings and portraits. What a blast it has been, we have had the best clients ever! We opened a small studio in 2007 on the West side of Normal where we are currently located at 112 Merle Lane, Suite 201. This gives us a place to meet with clients to brain storm wedding coverage or their portrait session as well as a small space for doing studio portraiture and our post production work.

Our specialty on the portrait side of the business has concentrated on providing relaxed candid portraits at unique locations. We love doing something different with each client. Thus we might be at your home, a local park, a family farm, a bed and breakfast or possibly a unique urban location. Whatever the location our endeavor is to provide you with professional quality wall portraits that you can use to decorate your home and portrait albums that will become family heirlooms as the years pass by. If your needs are just a couple of 5x7s and an 8×10 we probably are not the photographer for you. There are many options in town that will serve those needs and save you some money too.

I have a fantastic employee that keeps me on my toes! Hannah is her name and not only is she a fantastic designer but also a rather accomplished photographer. She is a recent graduate of SIU and she brings a fresh creative eye and presepctive to our sessions.  She is my second shooter at my weddings but she is also quite good at photographing, babies, children and expecting mothers. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m the rather handsome one on the right. 🙂
