COVID-19 UPDATE

Hey Friends. We are in this together. To help protect everyone, we’ve got new policies and procedures for our photography services. Please take the time to read through. Really.

For now, we’re following CDC, state, and local authorities to close for personal services. As soon as we’re able to officially open, these are the new guidelines we’ll be following to keep everyone safe regarding contact and social distancing during this crisis.

  • If WE feel ill at all or discover that we’ve been in contact with someone that is ill, we’ll reschedule the shoot.
  • If YOU feel ill at all or discover that you’ve been in contact with someone that is ill, call us and we’ll reschedule the shoot.
  • If we’re on-site where we discover there is a possibility of contracting an illness, we’ll leave and reschedule.
  • For our commercial shoots, please let us know if a site cannot be shot due to illness. In those cases, don’t worry about any cancellation or rescheduling fees.
  • We’ll be wearing masks during shoots and guiding posing without touch. Note on that: we’ll be taking extra time to make sure hair and clothes are perfect since we can’t be adjusting those like usual.
  • Limited attendance on photoshoots: if you’re not being photographed, please be off site for the duration of the shoot. If you have to be in attendance, please wait in our lobby (should we be at the studio) or in a physically separated area of the location, by a distance of no less than 20 feet.
  • Our studio will be very regularly cleaned and all surfaces disinfected. Hand sanitizer will be available to all.
  • For location shoots, please see that the location be clean and all surfaces disinfected with an approved disinfectant prior to the our arrival.
  • For real estate and architectural shoots, to eliminate the need to touch items at the location, please turn on all lights, turn off all ceiling fans, open blinds evenly, close toilet lids, and open all interior doors before the start of the shoot. Note that we’ll have to cancel the shoot if these policies not being followed,  and in that case, fees may apply.

We’re still around. YOU ARE IMPORTANT TO US! And we want to keep everyone safe and healthy. If you’ve got any questions before a shoot, feel free to let us know.

We’ll be revising this page regularly as this crazy world changes.

Some of Our Services

PORTRAIT

Is it time to update that family portrait? I’ve been a Lubbock photographer for 16 years and love doing family photography. Children grow so much faster than we want them. Believe me, I know. I’m a professional photographer and I don’t think I can take enough pictures of my girls.

Let me follow your family as they grow and change over the years by creating family portraits that are different. Those that capture photographically the personalities that make your family unique.

Challenge me. Let’s make something special!

COMMERCIAL

What may seem a very dry part of photography has become exciting to this Lubbock photographer.

I’m based in Lubbock, TX but regularly travel all over doing our style of commercial photography. I love working with art directors to make a concept come to life.

Commercial photography allows me a chance to show my photographic skills, bringing this expertise in focus for magazine advertising, corporate publications, brochures, restaurant menus, etc.

If you have something you want to sell or promote, I’d love to help. And corporate headshots are a specialty as well.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS

Ok, so you’re a Lubbock high school senior. Please, don’t call me if you want traditional high school senior portraits! This is only for those that possess something different and want a photographer who likes that.

Let’s face it, most of high school is about figuring out who you are. So, if you’re an individual, let’s make your senior portraits distinctive and exclusive.

I’m all about living on the creative edge.

Come try something different with us.

ARCHITECTURE

Architectural photography has become somewhat of a specialty for us. I cover Lubbock architecture photography but I’ve traveled the world, capturing some of the most amazing structures.

We know that great images can bring in that next multi-million dollar project. Most people involved in building their next edifice can’t visualize what the possibilities are. We can bring that vision into focus.

We’re also licensed and insured for drone photography and videography. Let us create some amazing images of your work, construction, and all the details.

WEDDINGS

There are sooo many Lubbock wedding photographers. How do you choose? Well, number one, you need someone who’s got some experience. I’ve done several hundred weddings and they’re probably one of the most special events I get to be a part of; wedding photography allows me to take captive all those amazing moments of your wedding day. Hanging out behind the scenes to find those little instances of extreme importance to seize with my camera.

I believe in a fusion of what I call freestyle photography (a documentary feel with a little zest of showing the love between a bride and her groom) and hyper-posed (my own word, lol) fashion. Why shouldn’t you look like you came out of a wedding magazine?

Engagement photography and bridal photography are also such an important part of the mix. Let’s take it with a dash of fashion and fun, creating something completely unique! And I don’t just do Lubbock wedding photography, let’s go wherever. As a matter of fact,
if you’ve got a cool destination in mind, I might even make you a deal!

BOUDOIR

I’m a local Lubbock photographer that’s been doing our style of boudoir photography longer than anyone around here. 16 years!

I offer an exclusive, personal and private photography service and experience for women seeking a photographer they can trust with their boudoir photography. Who is this for? Especially in Lubbock, Texas? It’s for those brides requiring a better wedding gift for their groom than a golf club or cuff links, soccer moms who want that much needed confidence boost that could only come with our self-esteem building photoshoot, or as a little present for that special someone. Sexy, seductive, flirty, and can we say it? FUN!

Don’t worry if you have a few, well, flaws. We’ve never photographed the perfect person. Our enhancing will have you looking like you stepped off the pages of any magazine. Really.

Different • Special • Better

That’s our little motto above. And we do mean it! Not just in our photography either. How about a place that actually cares? I believe in and try to live by the Golden Rule. If that’s you too and you’re interested in creating something different with me, book a shoot and let’s do it!
