Blending photography expertise with a creative, fun experience resulting in beautiful memories is our goal and one we take very seriously. Your story matters and we want to help you remember and cherish life's special moments.

My wife, Tana, is my partner in everything including Innovative Images. We have two adult children, Alona and Brock, and son in law, Patrick. Nike, our furry one- eyed Peek a Poo dog, completes our family.

In our free time our favorite activity is hanging out with the family. In addition, we are both obsessed with golf, watching football and baseball. I especially love gardening and Tana loves to eat the stuff I grow . We are both avid fans of the Texas Rangers and Oklahoma Sooners. (We know....we live in enemy territory, but you'll have to excuse us as we are Native Oklahomans - Boomer Sooner!) 

My Dad, who passed at age 40, left me some great advice, "Kurt, do something you love. Life is short." I love golf, so my first career path was a stint as a golf professional.My second career started when we opened Innovative Images in Nov.,1992, in Frisco, TX. In July, 2019, we relocated to McKinney, TX. I took my love of golf and photography and made careers from both. Lucky, lucky, lucky, blessed, etc. 

A thirst for learning and creating keeps me passionate and fresh in my field. I was trained as a portrait photographer so I understand the technical aspects of photography and lighting in a way that is obvious in my work. 

The trust of our clients, the support of family, and the blessings of God allow us to continue to do what we love.There have been ups and downs in this 30+ year journey, but one thing is for sure...we are still learning and enjoying the ride. We are extremely grateful for the incredible loyalty our amazing clients have demonstrated throughout the years. Each day is a gift and another opportunity to record "Your Life, Your Love and your Legacy" through the lens of the camera.

Can't wait to meet you!
