For me, this blog wouldn't be complete without featuring the fashion styles of the love of my life, the amazing Melissa Marie! She is always busy creating and doing something artistic and that creativity flows into her outfits. She often makes articles of clothing, such as the top she is wearing in the above portrait. It's always fun seeing what inspirations God has given her and I'm always honored to have a front row seat to seeing them expressed!
It has been far too long since I last posted! I apologize to those who were waiting to see their fashion portraits up. I am planning to get back to posting on a consistent basis. Thanks for your patience! It has been a busy and active last few months. There have been a lot of changes occurring in my life. Thankfully they have been good changes. :) Please enjoy the latest street portraits of these awesome fashionistas!

This is the amazing and super creative Sonya! She was at the Farmers Market with Quilt Stories http://www.flickr.com/people/quilt-tours/ , https://www.facebook.com/pages/Quilt-Stories/130422750373739?sk=info this past Saturday. I absolutely LOVE her fashion and she creates most of her outfits! You can find out more about Sonya here: http://ladyfits.blogspot.com/ :)
I met these two fashionista's at the July 2, 2011 Farmers Market in Cedar Rapids. Lisa and her daughter, Sophia are from Chicago and were out enjoying the 4th of July weekend and all there was to see at the market. They were both sporting great outfits and were really fun to photograph!

My wife, Melissa, has now added "fashion designer" to her growing list of creative talents! The incredible top she is wearing was made by her! I have enjoyed watching her build a stylish wardrobe of items that are her own creations! Melissa never ceases to amaze me with what she can do and as an artist myself, she is a wonderful source of inspiration! :)
I met Kristin in the Barnes & Noble cafe and asked her for a photo because her dress is simply amazing! The top that she put with her dress really compliments this look! I don't know Kristin, but I can tell that she has a wonderful and creative spirit about her!
I loved the outfit Mom chose for the last day of our vacation in Branson! She naturally has a wonderful sense of style and that showed as she put this outfit together so well! Its also fun seeing how her fashion has evolved and changed over the years and I am convinced that she just keeps getting younger and younger! :)
While vacationing in Branson, MO this summer, Melissa and I were shopping at the Tanger Outlet Mall where we met Jennifer. I found out that Jennifer is also a photographer and is from Arkansas. I love her dress/boots and bag combo! When I asked her for a photo she suggested that Melissa be in the photo with her. :)
I went to the first Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmer's Market of the season where I met Margaret. I first noticed her lace-up tattoos and had to tell her how cool they were! Margaret was really fun to meet and with her stylish hat, and accessories I just had to get a photo for my blog! :)
Nichole is such a fun and talented young lady! She has an awesome singing voice and a great sense of style! This is the outfit she wore to her sister's graduation party. I think this combo is excellent! Keep singing and never stop being you, Nichole! You've got a bright future ahead of you!! :)

Here is a photo of my amazing wife and our good friend, Ingrid! We went to a graduation party together and I had to get a photo of their outfits! Both Melissa and Ingrid love fashion and have both already been featured on "A Moment in Fashion". Ingrid is also Melissa's hair stylist and does fantastic work!! :)
Meeting new people is so much fun! I met my new friend, Andrea, at the Chalk The Walk festival in Mt. Vernon, Iowa. She has such a positive and upbeat spirit about her and you can't help but smile and feel good after talking with her! I loved her outfit and I'm looking forward to doing a photoshoot with her someday! :)
Here is another photo of the amazing Alice! :) She is a fun and talented young woman from London who was teaching at Coe College. I love her personal fashion style and the color combo in this outfit is excellent! I hope she comes back to Cedar Rapids this fall! The more creative people in this area, the better! :)
This is Alice, she is a wonderful fashionista that I met at Brewed Awakenings, my favorite coffee shop. On this day she had also just happened to also be photographed by Cliff Jette for the CR Gazette's MyStyle section. My wife and I had been featured in the prior issue. The Gazette article with Alice was excellent and Cliff made some great portraits of her! I was honored to also be able to feature Alice on my fashion blog. She has such a great style! :)

While I was hanging out with a friend at Brewed Awakenings, this cool fashionista named Logan walked in. She is a senior at Washington High School and another person with amazing style! I think this combo is excellent and fun! It was fun to meet you, Logan! I wish you the best as you finish out your senior year at WHS and begin your next journey where ever that may be! :)

I was just getting ready to leave Barnes & Noble when I saw Jeremy. He is a Coe College student who enjoys and is studying art and writing. This guy has an amazing style! And it was fun to find out that he and I have the exact same coat! Its always great to find guys who put creative thought into their personal style!

I met Allison at Barnes & Noble this week. She is a Kennedy High School student who was looking at books in the art section. I was not surprised to see her there because her outfit is the result of someone who has a fun and creative mind! This outfit combo is excellent and I like how she even added fashionable gloves as well! Fashion is such a fun way to express creativity and personality and Allison has great style!

Jenny was looking at some cool fashion magazines (i.e. Nylon Magazine) with her boyfriend, Joshua (who is also a good friend of mine) when I decided to approach her for a photo. I really like how she put this outfit together. I was not at all surprised to learn that she is studying fashion in school! She has great style! I really enjoyed meeting Jenny and it was really good to see Joshua again.
I was coming out of Half-Price Books when I saw this fun couple. They were headed to their car, playfully enjoying each others company and looking great! They were very patient with me as I had to dodge all the cars which were suddenly coming and going while I made the photo. Couples are so much fun to photograph! Especially couples like Emily and Anthony, that have great style! :)

My wife and I stopped at Bruegger's Bagels for a bagel a few nights ago when we met Katharine and Maddie. These two Washington High School students were enjoying a meal with their friends. I thought it was really cool how they both sported animal print styles. They were both really fun to meet! :)
Meet talented hair stylist, Ingrid. She is someone who is overflowing with creativity and has a great heart to match! I have been impressed with Ingrid's fashion style ever since I met her and so it was a pleasant surprise when she and I were both going into Barnes & Noble the other day at the same time and I was able to capture her style for my blog. :)

This is my good friend, Heidi, who I have known for several years! She is an amazing lady and I have always enjoyed her fashion style. Heidi has a wonderful creative spirit and is often full of great artistic ideas and perspectives. I was at River of Life Ministries when I captured this fashion portrait and was glad when Heidi enthusiastically agreed to a photo! :)
My wife, Melissa and I were on lunch break at Jimmy Johns when Morgan came in on her lunch break. A great choice as Jimmy Johns is awesome! But it was her choice of style that caught my attention! This is such a great combo and she looked great! I especially like her white jacket! I was very thankful that Morgan took a moment to allow me to capture a photo of her for this blog! :)
