Portraits of the Family

The cowboy’s brother and SIL have a couple really cute kids. And every year they let me take a family photo. Corralling two busy boys is a challenge though, but we do the best we can! They really love Kelsey’s horse, Polmol. He is their buddy. Here is what happened at this year’s session.

A Pretty Girl

I always get excited when I am able to take photos of our niece, Calico. She’s such a pretty girl, and an amazing individual. It’s become an annual thing — I take her “school” photos, which basically means she gets a fun “senior” type shoot every year. This year, and last, my friend Abby was […]

A Song About Domestic Violence

I haven’t written a new song in ages. But I was inspired to do so due to the last month, and mostly, this article. Here’s a little video, friends. I’ve called the song, “shallow”, but I’m not sure that’s an appropriate title. I don’t really know what is. So any insight you’re willing to give […]

A Personal Touch

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.   ~Maya Angelou~ In today’s world of  Social Media, the personal touch has been lost. We have email, Snapchat, Facebook, and private messages through nearly every app, so keeping up […]

Stories from the Road

As we continue on our road trips for the summer, it’s time to share yet another story; of kindness, good people, and a bit of luck… I was on the second day of my return journey from being in Glen Rose. I’d spend the night in Kansas, like I always do, and had a 10 […]

Reinbolt Family

I’m probably the slowest photographer known to man — in so much as work is concerned. I think people forget that I’m available for portrait work. Plus, it doesn’t help that I’m gone a lot on the weekends when families could come get their portraits made. Once in a while, someone will call and have […]

Glen Rose, Texas

I grew up not far from Glen Rose, Texas and attended college near there as well, so I have spent plenty of time in the Somervell County Expo Center. It’s a great facility, with good ground, lots of stalls, and good places to warm your horse up. When I discovered that I could go from […]

Stories from the Road

I think if you haul around enough, you get some good stories from the road — though sometimes they’re not awesome – like the time the pickup caught on fire — but my traveling around the past few weeks hasn’t been without a hiccup or two. Since I’m always by myself, I don’t drive straight […]
