Preparation increases your chances of performing at your best.

The studio for a musician allows practice sessions that smooth out the sound to be enjoyed the night of a performance.

I render emergency dental care in Kansas City.

An invitation to a jam session was gladly accepted as I met Queen Makedah and her band for a photo session.

Before a photo shoot I prepare mentally to deliver my best effort working hard as well as smart.

My goal is to photograph the musicians as they express themselves through their developed talents and gifts.

As they progress through the rehearsal, they make me feel they have performed in the studio on numerous occasions.

There’s something invigorating about watching professionals react to the various moods that develop in a composition they are playing.

The music played pulls you into the songs so well written.

I hear hope and promise sang in their music for all people, with so much emotion.

Emotions captured within a photograph tell a story about the subject transmitting their feelings in the moment.

The band is in rare form grooving to a reggae beat that makes you want to dance.

Good vibrations resonate throughout the band as vocals and instruments blend rhythm, melody, and harmony.

To deliver a quality product we work out the details  how to proceed  so that the best possible product is created.

The band gets it’s grooved-in sound, preparing to deliver their next concert.

From the band’s sound in the practice session, they give their all when they perform.

We should all perform our duties with the passion and energy of this reggae band.

Performing to the best of your ability requires preparation and working from the heart.

Placing your heart at the center of what you do allows others to bond.

Prepare to deliver your goods and services to a world willing to help you.

The fastest way to quench the fires of problems is through good preparation.

Well planned actions practiced to maximize their effect help to accomplish our goals.

Our best efforts create the products and services that make us most proud.

Preparation increases your chances of performing to the best of your ability.
