i shoot people



I had missed a few Military portraits lately, one being watching my beloved KC Chiefs take down the Chargers on Monday Night Football a couple weeks back. Needless to say I was excited to get back to shooting these. Thankfully Ron, Sabrina, and Bailey were not Charger fans so we didn’t have any conflicts there. Once again I am blessed to serve those who serve.


Here to Serve

I had the pleasure of shooting with Franco, Kiki and Natalia this past Monday. Thanks again for your service and allowing us the opportunity to bless your family!









Military Family Portraits: The Williams

I had a great time photographing the Williams Family this evening.  Every Monday night the team at Mission-Focused serves our military through offering free family portraits.  We have now been doing these shoots for the past 6 months, it was exciting to hear tonight how much this means to the families and how quickly the time slots are filled up, sometimes within minutes of the schedules being posted.

I’m Batman

I had a great time shooting Bruce’s 1 year photographs tonight, he was kind enough to bring his daddy Bruce and mommy Alicia, his uncle, and his grand parents who came all the way out from Tennessee to celebrate his 1st birthday.  I had shot their family portraits a ways back so I was excited to get to see the Estep family again tonight, it’s fun to see how fast kids grow up.  Anyways, I had a great time shooting tonight with Malia and Lisa, we decided to break the mold to avoid a creative block (sort of like writer’s block) so we shot around Liberty Station this evening.  It provided us with a lot of great backdrops to work with and we were glad we made that decision.  I got to learn more from Malia who is great at posing which is something I am wanting to get better at. anyways, here some pics from tonight. . .


Our favorite neighbors are getting ready to greet their second child Wyatt any day now, so we decided it was finally time to get some photographs. Alicia and i went to the park near our house and Alicia helped pose, she is quite creative even if she doesn’t believe it. Well here are the Lumpkins last family portraits before Wyatt.

Military Monday: Ryan’s 1!

This past Monday as part of our free military family portraits I was blessed to create Ryan’s 1 year photographs.
