Nashville | Fall 2015

     If you follow me on any of my social media pages you've probably seen that I spent 10 days down in Nashville.  I typically venture down there a couple times a year to play some shows, record, and work with Lighthouse Music.  This time around my focus was on playing shows so I played a show almost every night I was there and it was fantastic! I met so many great people and musicians, got to share the stage with wonderful writers, and got to really explore Nashville more in depth.  It doesn't even feel like I was down there for over a week, the time flew! It's really true what they say, time flies when you're having fun! (cheesy, I know) Anyway, I thought I would put all the pictures from my trip in one place for your viewing pleasure.  There are pictures I posted on my social sites while I was there plus some extra ones!
     Big thank you to everyone who came out to the shows, all the musicians who let me share the stage with them, all the venues for hosting live music, and huge thanks to Lighthouse Music (aka Michelle) for booking all those shows for me. I had a blast!

Noah Gundersen Concert | The Waiting Room | Omaha

Last night I got to see one of my all time favorite musician perform and it was AMAZING! It was hands down one of the best concerts I've ever been to.  Their musicianship was outstanding and Noah's voice sounds even better live than it does on his recordings.  The band that opened for them was Ivan & Alyosha who are also an amazing band.  The bottom picture is of them.  The lights were behind them so it was hard to get a good picture of anyone on stage because their faces were always covered in shadows, but I tried my best!  I'm sure it would have helped if I had my actual camera, but all I had was my phone. Anyway, enough about the pictures, the music was amazing, the atmosphere was great, and I got to hear all the songs that I loved performed live and I sang along to every single one! It was a great night and I will definitely be seeing Noah again in the future!

Lake Superior | Ontonagon, Michigan | Porcupine Mountains Music Fest

This weekend I had the opportunity to perform at the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival in northern Michigan and it was beautiful up there! It was right on Lake Superior, which I had never been to before, so I obviously had to take some pictures!

South Dakota

This past weekend I traveled to South Dakota for a show and it was gorgeous there.  I was in Spearfish which is in the Black Hills and the scenery was just breathtaking! I kind of went crazy with the pictures so I thought I would share a couple of my favorites.

Film Photography

Fridays are for FILM PHOTOGRAPHY! I own an old Minolta film camera, so I'm going to be sharing pictures that I have taken with it.  This week the pictures are from Valley Junction in West Des Moines.  A street filled with quirky little shops and graffiti art everywhere.
