One of the best parts of portrait photography is that it's all about team work. Content is king, they say, and above all emotion is the most photogenic thing. Belly laughs, delicate kisses, lovers' connection, or the spirit of youth. What I need as an artist to create is you - I can't wait to connect and see what art we'll create together.

I'm one of the incredibly lucky artists to call Mainframe Studios home. The project is on track to become the nation's largest nonprofit artist studio space! Right here in Des Moines it's truly an amazing space! My slice of it is studio #365 on the third floor!
