Mckinney, Texas is one of the fastest growing cities in America. Doesn't surprise me. Elle, lives there. The dark haired, ocean-eyed Texan seems to possess a magnetic personality -- I imagine she pulls a lot of double takes, and "do I know you" lines -- and it couldn't be more transparent in her photography. Her portraits are gorgeous, and honest examinations of the sisterhood she invests so much pride in. They're heartfelt and there's this sense of tangibility to them, like this family could be growing up a house behind you. And while her images are drawing you closer, her words imitate soft, sensitive whispers, even the type of tenderness you might expect from a revered childhood pastime. Personally, her best images have spawned thoughts in my head of an idyllic Texas life, like an ongoing "Tree Of Life" film, but with a little more estrogen. The relationships in her images are so alive, so real, you could almost create entire back-stories from them. She has also struck an accord with me through her total command of current music. Elle is a musical scavenger, going around collecting songs and hymns, and creating enchanting playlists. Through her captivating images, written expression, and delectable music choices, her Instagram feed has become a fountain of formosity. I have this strong feeling this interview will be a small footnote in the life of Elle Sabol, a tiny sparkle in an endless trail of bright lights. @clavicelle #igtalk

When I was 21 I was working at a film lab just a few miles from where I lived. What was advantageous about this job was the sheer talent I got to witness. We catered to many professional photographers, all with varying styles and film preferences. But this woman was my favorite. Robin made every visit a total joy. With her sweet southern accent, real kindness, and her bold and beautiful black and white images, she was a revelation to me. We’ve stayed in touch all these years, and when she recently got engaged, and asked me to photograph her wedding, I was ecstatic. Life comes full circle sometimes, and when it does, it’s often beautiful. A few sneak peeks from your wedding @makemerohr! I’m in love with these.

In honor of a crazy World Series, I’m pulling from the archives in today’s #throwbackthursday. I love portraits that highlight passions. And I love shooting people who open up on camera. Trey felt more comfortable on the diamond than anywhere else. #longliveportraits

Recent work for @t.madisonshop. The owner @taylorprather is an inspiring entrepreneur, and was a total joy to work with. If you’re looking to freshen up your winter wardrobe, and want to support a local small biz, look no further!

Little more than a week ago I was shooting for a few clients in High Point, NC. This recap video was shot over the course of 2 days in the ROWE showroom at the #hpmkt. It was our first time shooting with @rowefinefurniture and they treated US like kings. We ate like royalty — I had the best omelet of my life there, we were given a ton of creative freedom, and their showroom playlist was amazing — may not seem like a big deal, but you hear a lot of music over the course of two days. Here’s to more shoots with dream clients. 🙌🏼🔥

Today she made me cry of laughter. A few days ago we listened to amazing live music together. Every day is different. That’s why I love tomorrow’s. 💚 #sharegoodness #redrocksamphitheater #personalpost

So it’s #onehitwonderday today. Apparently that’s a thing. So in the spirit of rehashing fleeting moments for the poor unfortunate souls (in pain, in need 🎶 ) who really never feasted on success but rather took a small bite, I will throw my favorite into the ring.
.
Tubthumping by UK band Chumbawumba —boy that’s still fun to say, was the very first compact disc I ever owned. Who could forget the album art with the creepy baby and the super lime green —which had to have been inspired by Nickelodeon slime. Oh it definitely had my attention. And the lyrics still pose deep questions about life that remain unanswered. Like, what does it really mean to “piss the night away”? And who is Danny Boy?
.
Is there a one hit wonder that is better? I dare you to find one.
.
Also, this is an image from the recent volleyball shoots I did for Mountain Ridge High School. I’m posting a team shot to my stories.

Saturday Small Biz Shoutout || My buddy Brian has shown a ton of courage as he’s quit his office job, and has started @azflatfee, a real estate company that focuses on a flat fee service.
🏡
These are a few images from our photo + video shoot to get him started on social and make that website look like gravy.

If you’re in the market for a realtor, hit him UP.

[Press ▶️] for entryway goals || Love creating short social videos for clients. The 1 minute time limit is actually a fun creative constraint and it actually forces clients to trim their content so only the best gets seen.
🌵
@einteriors.design just killin fools over here. Such a talented design team. They collaborated beautifully with @aft_construction.

Are you a photographer? Are you on the album struggle bus? || Photographer and entrepreneur Superwoman, @melissajill, recently launched her Album Start Up Kit for photographers that answers every album question that's ever been asked and lays the hammer down on everything album related.
🌵
So we had the opportunity to produce the Album Start Up Kit sales film for Melissa. The creative challenge we had with this project was finding the balance in communicating visually what was included in the kit versus not revealing too much of the secret sauce. We think we struck a great combination and absolutely LOVED working with Melissa --such a joy to work with fellow creatives. We'll be preaching this kit to all our photographer friends and if you're interested in seeing more of this video, take a 👀 at the link in my profile! .

Blogger Shoot | The home I just photographed this week belongs to Maury Harris. Maury hired me awhile back to create some content for her blog @myheartracesblog. We dashed all over downtown Phoenix taking pics and discussing running as a passion -- which I'll never understand. But she was/is always a joy to shoot.

A little secret about me || Claire and I bought a Wii U from eBay back in December and have been hooked ever since. I've been a serious gamer since childhood, and Claire has dabbled in the Nintendo world -- though I think her real hidden talent lies buried in a dusty guitar hero set.
.
We've played most of the Mario games on the Wii U and just finished Rayman, maybe the best time I've had playing video games since my halo tournament days. And it's a refreshing alternative to watching Netflix. Do any of you play? If any of you have Wii U recommendations, don't be shy. We want to know! We NEED to know!! 📷 Canon 5D MKIII 50mm 1.8 @ 1.8
The house with the most amazing ceilings || Quickly edited a few images from my shoot with @einteriors.design. These women are KILLING it. Their design choices are beautiful, bold, and also seem totally classic. I'm always impressed with their abundance of talent. Love, love, love working with them. Swipe left and check out the tile work and ceiling treatments. Mind 💥

These were all shot with natural light. I turned off all the lights and dropped my shutter to the bottom of the earth.

My largest project outside of Arizona || It happens twice a year in Vegas, at the Las Vegas Market -- which is basically this super comprehensive furniture and gift trade show. I basically cover the entire event, which spans the course of four days.
🎥
I shoot video of showrooms and seminars, parties and people, I record interviews with designers, buyers and bloggers. I have even been lucky enough to interview incredibly talented industry peeps like @justinablakeney, @em_henderson, @jessica_alicelane, @studiomcgee, and @mrdrewscott + @mrsilverscott.
🎥
This video is a recap of the winter market earlier this year. I know this isn't the type of content I normally post on my IG feed, and if I lose followers so be it, but in effort to share more of what I've been working on, I figured I better give you guys a little glimpse of this massive project.

Our First Vacation This Summer || A little over a week ago Claire and I visited my parents in Nampa, Idaho. They're in Nampa for three years serving a mission for our church. We hadn't seen them for over a year so it was a glorious reunion. Our trip was filled with adventures through small towns, drive by 🐮 spotting, some 🌽 field droning, lots of Blue Bell eating, and an amazing amount of game playing, much to the chagrin of Claire -- in her defense she was a wonderful sport.
🌽
My parents are a great example to me of selflessness. Leaving kids and grandkids, abandoning retirement, and putting their beach house vibes on pause has certainly made me question, 'how much am I willing to give up for the Lord?'
🌽
Anyway, love my parents. Love my wife. Love my life. The end. #sorryforallthephotos #sharegoodness
