In a word... A LOT! The galleries alone are enough to show I've been busy, not to mention the client galleries you don't see. McNeese State University is also extremely busy now because they are essentially playing both fall and spring seasons in one.

Those that follow me on social media, know that I was recently hired to be the official photographer for the Louisiana High School Basketball All-Star games. This was big news for me and a great opportunity. Things aren't stopping there! I also have two other things in the works that I can't yet mention. One announcement may be coming soon, the other not until fall. If there isn't an announcement, then it probably didn't work out. Please follow me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) to stay up-to-date with what's going on.

Baseball and softball are in full swing and I am booking for these sports. Please contact me to schedule. It has been a bit difficult to schedule baseball in some instances due to game cancellations and changes in roster. I know that some parents want to book but are having trouble knowing when their athlete will play. I do have you on a list but it would be helpful if you could keep me in the loop on when your athlete will be playing.

I have recently made contact with the Sulphur HS tennis coach and hope to attend/photograph some tennis matches very soon. If you would like to book your athlete, please feel free to contact me for that too.

With all this being said, I am excited about all the work that has been done, is being done, and will be done. A sincere thanks to all the parents that have been so welcoming and appreciative of my work, it really means a lot. I look forward to serving you in the future and capturing those memorable moments. I have recently invested in some new equipment that will only make this that much better. See you at the game!

Now Booking Sessions via Pre-Order Packages 9X0A66509X0A6650

I am now offering and booking sessions via pre-order packages. I will setup pre-orders for certain games/events and I will also try to accommodate individual requests. If you would like to book me for a certain game, please reach out via e-mail or on the contact form.


What does a pre-order package / booking a session mean? Basically, the athlete or parent will book me by purchasing pre-order package. They will select a package and pre-pay on this website. Currently, the packages will be for digital downloads and will be much cheaper than buying them individually after the game. I will go to the event and photograph the athlete(s) that have pre-ordered. Space will be limited. After the game and after the images have been edited, etc. I will upload the photos to a gallery. The parents and/or athlete will receive an e-mail notification with a link. They will then go to the gallery and select the images they want for download. I guarantee at least the minimum number of photos purchased for the pre-order but often times there will be more to choose from. For example, if you order a package of 10 digital downloads, you may find that the gallery has 20. You would select 10 you like the most and those would be the ones provided for download. Once the photos have been selected and the ordered approved, the client will receive an e-mail with another link to download a zip file, containing the images, to their desktop. Easy peasy!


Why are digital downloads the only thing offered at this time? Short answer... It's better for the client. With digital downloads you can use them for social media, digital frame displays and you can also print as many as you want as long as it is for personal use / not for profit. In other words, you can print one for the athlete, parents, relatives, etc. And two years from now if you want to print more, you can do that.


I would love the opportunity to book a session with you! If you have any questions or would like to book a session, please let me know. Cheers!

Cheer, Dance, & Band Collections 9X0A56079X0A5607


During the different games that I attend, I try to take photos of everything that is going on at the event. This usually involves the cheerleaders, dance team, and possibly a band. All of these photos get mixed in with the galleries of the actual game. So, as a way to highlight each of these, I have decided to add them into their corresponding collections. This will add some more organization/order to the site. That way, if someone is interested in a certain cheer photo for example, they won't have to dig around in each of the game galleries. Hopefully over time, I can gradually add more and more to these collections. Currently I have the collections organized by not only discipline but also between college and high school. I hope this helps!
