Senior Pictures, Wedding Photography and Family Portraits

Welcome to JPShots Photography Website! I am a photographer who loves his work. As you click through my pages, you will see that I like to photograph people in most any life situation. 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 senior brings to their senior picture 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 Bachelors of Science in Photography, as well as a Bachelors 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; and, 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! OK, 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, its the people who make life events special. My talents can make those events memorable, whether you are a senior looking for senior pictures, a bride-to-be looking for a wedding photographer, or maybe a couple looking for engagement photos.
