About Our Portrait Photography Style!

My Background

Faces in the water. chad mahlum self portrait. Unique mans portrait. lifestyle photography.

I've loved taking pictures since I took my first photo in grade school. I went on to get a photography degree from Andrews University.  I have also photographed many different subjects, scenes, and people all over the world. There's a picture around every corner.

Photography as Communication


I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. I use my camera to document the world and then print images with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My pictures tell peoples stories. 

At The Lifestyle Photography Studio, we photograph with a free-style  approach in order to capture a more natural expression.  We place a lot  of emphasis on being relaxed and comfortable. It is our goal to create a  portrait that expresses the uniqueness of each client. We love to photography in Grand Junction. We specialize  in High School Seniors, Families, Children, Pets and Commercial Photography. We have a 2400 square foot studio sitting on a 2 acre  portrait park.
