I have to start this post with:


When I had my daughter, almost 4 years ago (holy cow, where does the time go??) I had the  MOST AMAZING nurse ever. Her name is Erin.

I kept in touch with her, and when she got pregnant, I did her maternity photos. This was the first time I had gotten to meet her husband Bruce.

I love getting to know my clients, knowing what they like and what their hobbies are. I quickly learned that Bruce was a MMA fighter and owns a gym, All American MMA Academy and Cage Rentals.

All I could think about was shooting there. I wasn’t sure when, and I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to shoot, I just knew I WANTED TO SHOOT THERE!  This was almost two years ago.

I finally got my butt in gear, figured out I wanted to shoot, and booked it. I have to THANK Mr Jim Meyer of Meyer Photography for coming down from Indianapolis to help me with this shoot, and to Whitney Kayrouz for stepping in at the last minute and doing the hair AND makeup for these beautiful ladies. I have to say that I had a blast with this shoot, it is totally not what I’m used to shooting and these models ROCKED IT!!!

If you follow me on Facebook at all, I’m sure you have seen some of these images. I couldn’t help but post some.
