Welcome to JPShots Photography! I am a photographer who loves his work. I want to capture the breathlessness of the wedding couple's first kiss or the tender moment when a newborn shapes her mouth into a big yawn. It's exciting to see the growth in the children who return yearly for their annual photos. I love the energy that a high school senior brings to his/her senior portrait session, and I like taking family portraits that include three and four generations. Occasionally, I have been honored to take end-of-life photographs -- for families who know their loved one will be leaving soon. I take my role as a photographer very seriously. I know that it is my privilege to be a part of others' important events.
I bring to the table a wealth of knowledge and skill. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a bachelor's degree of science in photography, as well as a bachelor of fine arts in graphic design. I have won several awards for my work in product, portrait, and fine art photography.
I am a high-energy person. I have an outgoing, friendly personality. I have a knack for talking to people from all walks of life. My personality lends itself to a relaxing setting for my clients. I work in jeans, roll up my sleeves, and have fun! Okay, I might wear fancy pants and a bow tie to your wedding! I have state-of-the-art camera gear and lighting equipment, since I am a perfectionist and want only the best images.
In short, it's the people who make life events special. My talents can make those events memorable, whether you are a senior looking for a senior photographer or a bride-to-be looking for a wedding photographer.
