CURE FOR OUR FRIENDS Calendar for 2016

by on June 3rd, 2016

It was a real pleasure to work with the team from “Cure For Our Friends”, a non-profit organization in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, who provide assistance and support to local families who have members fighting Cystic Fibrosis. We created a calendar for 2016 with images of many families in the area with short biographies of their fight with this disease. Each month featured one family/family member and a local business who sponsored that particular month. These are all wonderful people and it was a distinct honor to photograph them and learn of their stories. You can learn more about their organization and learn how you might assist them at Please check it out and do what you can to help this very deserving group.

The Country Living magazine held their Fair in Lebanon, Tennessee April 24-26, 2015. There was great entertainment, really quality crafts and antiques, good food and several very interesting seminars/workshops. One of the featured speakers was Mike Wolfe, star of The American Pickers, which I really enjoy.

2014 Biker Calendar Project

by on December 26th, 2013

We had a great time creating a 2014 calendar as a charity project for a local biker organization dedicated to helping kids. We had all volunteer models, hair stylists and make-up artists. The whole project was completed in less than three weekends with calendars printed and distributed for sale. All proceeds are going to assist the kids. A big thanks to all who assisted in this effort!

VIN Fine Wines and Spirits

by on December 26th, 2013

VIN Fine Wine and Spirits is a new and wonderful wine store recently opened in Lebanon, TN. Jennifer and her staff are extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all questions regarding wine, beer, cocktails, etc. We had a great time photographing their store, and as you can see, it is certainly a cut above your typical “liquor store”! They have wine tasting on Fridays, beer tasting on Saturday afternoon, and cocktails on Tuesday evening. You really have to check this one out!!
