So proud of this empowered young lady. She couldn’t make me happier on Father’s Day. You keep being you, @crazyinsanenerdygeek , your best version is still ahead, but the journey there is getting epic already! #alwaysaprouddad #pride #mygaydaughterrocks #getyourgayon
@crazyinsanenerdygeek , my beautiful goth girl, being an amazing subject. #gothgirl #goth #gothmodel #portaiture #studiophotography
Happy Birthday @crazyinsanenerdygeek ! I love you!!!!! Have a wonderful day!
The picture booth was broken so Dad whipped out his phone and we improvised. Took my daughter out to celebrate her 16th birthday today; she played it low key to celebrate and Daddy was lucky enough she chose to spend it with him. This girl is the sparkle in my eye. Happy birthday @crazyinsanenerdygeek. Love, your biggest fan.
Live your life with passion, it’s the only journey you’ll ever get. @kenstepinout being passionate, bold, and amazing. #bwportrait #passion #moreemotionisclearlybetter #portraitphotography #behuman

A quietly stowed away image from a shoot we worked on for Fizzy Fairy Apothecary's bath bombs. This is @downen_creative_studios as one of her top three favorites, Ravenna, emerging from the milk bath. Yes, the crown was sacrificed for the shoot, but yes, the wig survived. For the sake of results like this though, the crown was a worthy sacrifice. This is still in my top two shoots of all time and occurred in the kid's bathtub filled with a creamy white bath bomb and a gorgeous woman every bit Ravenna as Charlize Theron.

“When I say Space Pants you say... are intergalactic Space Pants!” @crazyinsanenerdygeek and @abbycatcosplay recently paid tribute to all star @peterdinklage in a photo shoot. #spacepants #andspaceshorts #peterdinklage #snl #cosplay #spaceattitude #intergalacticspacepants
I do so fit, shut up. Cats have amazing self images, I could learn from this self awareness master. #cat #catsofinstagram #catinabox #bestselfimage

Burr Reynolds filter turned up to 11. @abbycatcosplay sporting some sweet cop shades and looking way better than your average popo. #copshades #thepopo #burtreynoldsfilter #bw #portraiture #bandit
This is, without question, the silliest phot shoot I’ve ever been a part of; a shoot inspired by @peterdinklage as Space Pants. Originally, my 11 year old son was cast as Peter’s character, but he became too shy with a friend of his watching, so my daughter (@crazyinsanenerdygeek ) happily took the pants and ran with them (heyooohhh). This particular image was one of @abbycatcosplay ‘s ideas of a Space Pants album cover, obviously inspired by the goddess herself, @madonna . There’s more to come from this ridiculous odyssey...

When test shots go really, really right. This is @harbeastie who graciously stepped into frame so I could check my lighting and we got a really good take. That’s a handmade margarita in her hand made by yours truly. Yes, I’m a multifaceted photographer/bartender :) #valkyrie #thorragnarok #cosplay #womenofcosplay #heybartender #cadillacmargarita #cosplayportrait #studioportrait

Getting ready to tape my wife up! This must be the third duct tape dummy we’ve made of her in the past couple of years; we’ve definitely got the process down to a science! In case you’re wondering, we laid out at least a dozen 4’ long strips on the cutting board, then precut them to large, medium, and small lengths. Then selected and pulled based on the body part, the curve, etc. we had to reload at least three times, but this process increased our efficiency by a huge margin. #ducttape #ducttapedummy #tapeclone #tapemodel #cosplay #cosplaytips
