OK, I finished up Justin & Janine’s wedding photos today and this was one of the last ones in the group.  I had forgotten we went outside to capture a photo or two in the falling snow and when I looked through them, this one turned out being one of my favorites!  What do you think?


Weddings Around the Corner

If you are here visiting the site for the first time let me be the one to welcome you here.  There is a lot of work, time and effort put into each image and I hope you take the time to look around.  For every image you see there are literally thousands more here on the computer, on separate hard drives and backed up.  I am grateful for the work I do and love every minute of it.  I have been photographing Weddings for over 9 years now. 5 of those have been digital.  About 3 years ago I started offering brides Wedding Albums.  They are beautiful and a sight to behold.  If you would like to see a sample of one, just give us a call to come in and look at it.  If you want to see a sample of what one looks like I’ll share one with you.  You can find it HERE.


Please, look around and don’t be afraid to let me know what you think!

Our Little One

Time goes by so fast.  It never fails, it seems you only look away for a heartbeat and when you turn around a month has gone by.  So it is with us and our little one.  He’s a month old now and still growing.  Just wanted to share a photo of him from last week.

Hush Little Baby

Our newest addition is such a Baby.  Seriously.  I couldn’t ask for a better newborn.  Besides his initial shock into this world, he has been a gem!  After he eats, he goes to sleep without hardly a cry from his mouth.  He likes to snuggle and all three of his brothers and sisters agreed to let us bring him home as soon as their mom is ready.  Take a look for yourself, you’ll see that I’m just another proud Father.

Again, I apologize for any missed calls but I promise to catch up to you by the end of this week!

What a Baby

I just finished one of the cutest baby sessions I’ve had in a little while.  This little guy, Levi Ray, was so good for the camera all of  us couldn’t believe it.  He smiled, he raised his head, you couldn’t have asked him to do any better then he did.  What is even neater then that is that he is only 2 weeks and 1 day old!  Take a look at this little guy and you’ll see what I’m talking about!

Lessons Learned

I’ve had the past experience of attending several different photo seminars in my time and for the most part they’ve been great!  With the exception of only a few, I’ve been able to come away with an increased knowledge as well as a new drive for business.  This 3 day intense, almost non-stop adventure was not to dissapoint.  With classes from 9 am until 9 pm and many times earlier and later, it left me with some great tips, and techniques that I can use to enhance my skill as a photographer as well as a businessman. So here is a shot of a lady named Ina.  She volunteered for an impromptu class on lighting.  We used a video light only and were able to capture some great images.  Just had to share.


It’s rare I get to visit a distant city twice in a year, but that’s just what I finished doing in Nashville.  About 4 weeks ago I was there to help celebrate my sister’s 50th birthday!  What a lot of fun that was!  But this time I was there for 4 days to take part in and learn from some of the best photographers in the US and Canada.  You have to stay on your toes in this business and that is all these guys did.  A typical day ended up like this.  7am, class starts.  12 pm break for lunch.  1pm class starts.  5 pm break for dinner.  7pm class starts.  9 pm end.  Then the networking and impromtu classes broke out.  What a hoot and make sure to take a look at those who were there!  Do you see me?


I went to the Willard game last night vs. Carthage and was shooting some photos when Mr Harris here got hit! Take a look at his leg in this picture.  No wonder he went down for a little bit and got back up hopping.  I hope he is doing better!!!!

Soccer & Softball

On Tuesday I stopped by the girls softball game as well as the boys JV game and grabbed some photos of the teams playing. I’m in the process of getting them online at the moment but should have all of them up by tomorrow evening. Once I do I’ll post the link here.
