A portrait of a loved one or a family photograph can be among our most cherished possessions. It is a way of remembering and honoring these special moments and special people in our lives. Portraits make great gifts, even if the gift is for you!
My prime objective in portraiture is to create a work of art of exceptional quality that you will love and cherish. Feel free to contact me if you would like to brainstorm about creative ideas for a portrait! I love a challenge! If you have an idea that is new or different, I can make it happen!

- "My experience with you was one that I will never forget! I have never seen anyone put so much thought and effort into perfecting their craft. You made the shoot fun and spontaneous, and i was never bored or tired with taking the photographs. I am still in awe of the photos you produced and all i can say is thank you so much. I cannot wait to shoot with you again, and at this point I wouldn't want to with anyone else. You made me feel so beautiful. :)" Thanks again. Alexis Coleman, Miss Teen Texas United America
- "Kevin – I want to thank you for doing such an AMAZING job on my photo shoot!! I had the hardest time deciding on final selections because there were so many wonderful images to choose from! When my husband saw the pictures, all he could say was “WOW”! You are the first photographer I’ve ever worked with who has put so much time and effort into ensuring every shot is perfect. My final photos were all I dreamed they would be. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable during the shoot, and letting me be ME. I can’t wait to work with you again; looking forward to that Corvette shoot! ;-) ~*Many hugs*~" Rena Brubaker, Mrs. Texas United America
