The man behind the lens

Yesterday we decided to go out to a snowy trail and do some portraits of him. It’s a good chance to shine the light in him. He started shooting with me almost 7 years ago and has made Tailgate Photography better than ever. He has such a fun personality and kids absolutely love him! He is literally a baby whisperer… parents want to take him home all the time.

James is beyond talented in everything he does from capturing your family to playing peek a boo with your kids for a smile. We are a photography team that works perfectly together but he also takes lead and shoots sessions & weddings solo.

He is always up for doing a shoot anytime I want to pick up my camera. I never have to tell him to smile because it never leaves his face. I did want more of an emotional photo to use in my new blog about our infertility journey. It was the last shot, I told him to think about this hard journey and our angel baby. I could see saddest in his eyes but also hope. If you would like to ready our blog, I will link it at the bottom of the page.

I’ve been happily photographing weddings and portraits for 16 years and counting
I love what I do. I’m a hopeless romantic that believes in fairytales and happily ever after, I’m a big dreamer and a storyteller.

I've been happily married to my husband James for almost 7 years. He shoots with me every chance he gets.
