    Senior Sports Banners
    Hey all!  Just wanted to share the latest design proofs for an upcoming senior sports shoot.  I love these shoots because I get to give the senior boys and girls something to remember and it gives me a chance to get creative.  It's also great to see your work hanging from the bleachers at a high school football stadium!

    So let's get to the new designs.  

    For the boys, I wanted to keep the grungy look but step it up a notch and add some drama.  So i decided to swap the custom M design for one of my earlier shots of the stadium with some creative transforms, added lights and a ton of smoke brush effects.

    For the girls, I wanted to do something entirely different so I went for a more classic look with a swipe graphic and overlayed the same stadium image.

    Let me know what you think in the comments.  Or, if you'd like something like this, shoot me an email at

    Updated Look and New Prices!
    Hey everyone and thanks for taking a few minutes to visit my site.  Hopefully, you'll notice that I've updated my logo and watermark to give it a little more color and personality (see below).

    I've also updated my portrait pricing for this year.  My intent was to lower the session costs and provide more flexibility on the packages and individual prints and images.  Hopefully this will give everyone more options to better meet your needs and budget.

    As always, if you have any thoughts, questions, or want to setup a session, email me at or add a comment below.  

    thanks and have a great day!

    The Painted Look
    I've been doing more experimenting with a painterly look on my images.  The idea is to make the images more artistic by combining standard, retouched images with a paint filter, followed by use of the mixer brush and added brush strokes in Photoshop.

    Here's an example of my latest with the before and after just below it.
