Claudia + Ricky – A Costa Rican Wedding

August 3, 2018

When I started photographing as The Nikon Kidd back in 2014, I never thought I would have an opportunity like this one. I was invited to Costa Rica to shoot one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen. As far as destination weddings go, you can’t get much better than this! I arrived a few […]

Why I haven’t been making any more blog posts

May 24, 2018

If you like to regularly check up on my blog, you might have been disappointed this year. I haven’t posted since January! Wow! The reason why is this: I’ve been designing a brand new, even prettier website. It’s far from finished, but you can check out the progress here: I’ve been planning this switch for […]


This year was such a big one for me. It was my first year in which my photography and writing were my only form of income, which is always a huge leap to make while starting your own business. It was a jump headfirst into the deep end, but guess what? I did well for myself! […]

Cassie + Danny – Flatside Vista, Arkansas Engagement

November 13, 2017

Wow! What a day! Cassie and Danny picked the perfect location for their shoot – The Flatside Wilderness near Ola, Arkansas. We hiked up a little trail to a point called Flatside Vista. It was so beautiful, and the lighting was perfect for my style of photography. The clouds brought out all that great fall […]

For our shoot we settled on Twin (or Triple) Falls in the Ponca area near the Buffalo River in Arkansas. It’s a beautiful location all year […]

Lake Avalon Spillway After A Thunderstorm

September 17, 2016

After the heavy rains yesterday I decided to go take a photo of another waterfall. This time I drove over to the Lake Avalon Spillway. It was really flowing! The scene was very chaotic, with water flowing in every direction, but I did my best to arrange it in a manner pleasing to the eye.  […]


Bella Vista, Arkansas is a town with lots of lovely waterfalls that are an absolute joy to photograph after a good rainstorm. I had to scramble down an embankment, camera gear in tow, but the end result was so worth that extra effort. This photo was taken late afternoon with overcast skies and a one […]

Is A Full Frame Upgrade Worth The Extra Money

August 29, 2016

After playing around with the D610 for a few days, here are my thoughts on upgrading to a full frame: You hear photographers talk about the benefits of a full frame constantly: better low light performance, better lenses, better autofocus, and higher image quality. While I’ve found these things to be true, I haven’t seen […]
