This is Becca and she works with my wife at a local sewing center called "Pine Needles." She has such a wonderful personality and is the kind of person who easily puts a smile on your face and makes you feel joyful! She is naturally creative and her artistic ability is expressed well in this outfit!

This is my friend, Layne. He is an incredible guy and has a great fashion style! My wife and I were at Hy-Vee getting some food to make dinner when he came up to say hello. His coat is awesome and the shoes and jeans are perfect with it! Its always great seeing Layne and it was fun to be able to capture his style. That evening, Melissa and I made a delicious pizza and it was a great way to end the day!
I am so glad I was able to do this post because this outfit is incredible! This is Avery, I met her and her mom as we were all exiting Barnes & Noble. I think its great when people not only put together a fashionable outfit but especially when it really suits who they are. Avery put together an outfit that is both an awesome style and that is perfect for her! She is a local student in the community and it was really cool seeing her hanging out with her mom! I like seeing parents and their teenage or adult kids hanging out together! :)

Here is my lovely wife, Melissa! :) I really enjoyed this outfit she wore on this beautiful fall evening! Black, white and red can be an amazing combo and she proved that well in this outfit. I especially like how the zebra stripes outlining her red sweater match her zebra stripes boots (which she painted herself!) The fabric she is holding are her own designs which are making a huge splash in the quilt and fabric world! I'm so proud of her! :)

This is my friend, Paige. She is the daughter of an amazing local artist named Stephanie and the sister of Nichole, from the previous post. As my wife, Melissa and I were at their house that afternoon, Paige came outside where Stephanie, Melissa and I were enjoying conversation and a glass of wine and I couldn't help but make a portrait of her. :) I love her hat and her sweatshirt is really cool and the color is great! Paige is a lot of fun and was also making preparations for homecoming weekend.

Meet my friend, Nichole! She is such a fun person and in this photo she was trying out the dress and shoes she had picked out for homecoming. She looks awesome and I love the color of her dress against the blue, late afternoon sky! Nichole is the daughter of Stephanie, an amazing local artist and good friend to my wife and I and we were at her house looking at new fabric my wife designed that had just arrived! It was a fun day! :)
I was at the Edgewood Road Hy-Vee grocery store when I met this fashionable lady. The timing worked out perfect for me to ask her if I could make a portrait. This is one of those outfits that, to me, just works perfectly! She was really fun to meet and is a student at Kirkwood and learning to speak Japenese fluently! I wish I would've asked her to say something in Japanese! That would be a fun language to learn, but I need to master spanish first! ;)

This Coe College student, sporting a fun fall fashion style, was outside of Brewed Awakenings Coffeehouse and was getting ready to cross the street with a friend of hers to go back to the Coe College campus. It was such a beautiful day outside and it I love the coffeeshop/college campus/sunny fall morning feel!
