Senior Collection

May 29, 2009

As promised here are some of my favorites from the shoot way back on Mothers Day. I had a lot of fun and learned a ton. I discovered that, although I love shooting children, Seniors are much easier. The girls were great to work with and enjoyed being the center of attention. (Imagine that) Taylor was a total stud, and the camera obviously loved him.
Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

Worth the wait

May 15, 2009

Here are few more pictures of my niece Rian. When it comes to taking photos, she needs a little bit of time to warm up. After walking around a little bit and playing with my son she was ready to go. Rian has more sass than most girls I know, but I think when your this cute it comes with the territory.

Last weekend I attended a great workshop by Brianna Graham. Her style and technique was very interesting to learn. Working with other photographers was another great part of workshops that I enjoy. I’m excited to integrate some of the things I learned into my style. Here is a sneak peek of the photos that will be coming soon from the Urban session.

Happy Mothers Day

May 10, 2009

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there. I have a wonderful collection of awesome mothers in my life. My mom is an amazing woman. She has always made it clear to me that she loves me and that she would do anything for me. Mom I love you. My mother in-law is also very special to me. She is so supportive and sincere with her love for her children. (Especially her favorite son in-law)

My wife is a awesome mother to our children. Everyday she seems overwhelmed with the amount of love she has for each one of our children. I hope they all have a great day, and know that I love them dearly.

Funny story, I won’t even be able to be with these amazing women on their day, because I am going to a photography workshop. And if you don’t think that is selfish enough. The very next day is my wife’s birthday and I will be gone for that too. I’m not sure how I am going to make it up to her, but I’ll come up with something.  Taryn I love you. 

I know no one will read this post unless there is a picture attached, so here is a cool mini session I did with my buddy Jordan and his son. I think they turned out a great. Yes they are a little cheesy but you women love cheesy right?

Mustache May

May 8, 2009

May is synonymous with flowers, spring, Mothers day, and all sorts of girly things. Although I can appreciate these things, I am trying to raise awareness of a the manly side of May, and what is more manly than a well groomed mustache. I have been walking around taking pictures of guys and their mustaches. I also have been asking them a few questions, like how long they have had it and what their wife or girlfriend thinks about it. Not surprisingly the women in their lives LOVE it, and who can blame them, really. Here is this weeks collection of awesomeness.

Yes that handsome devil in the bottom corners is me. (Taken with my laptop camera)

This little guy is so cute and just so interested in what was going on that he refused to take a nap. The picture that might look like he fell asleep in his dads arms, is actually him about to sneeze. As you can see he is adorable, and its sessions like this, that are going to kill my wife, because they make her so baby hungry. Thanks again Kade and Elisa for this fun session.

Cinco De Mayo

May 5, 2009

To be completely honest I have no Idea what the holiday celebrates. I’ll have to go check Wikipedia to find out, but what I do know is that it makes me want to go eat some yummy mexican food. It doesn’t get much more yummy or authentic than a spicy pork burrito from a taco cart downtown. Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone. Go eat a burrito. I just hope we don’t all celebrate Cinco De Mayo’s revenge tomorrow.

Self Portrait

May 4, 2009

I have a very exciting workshop coming up, and for this workshop they asked that we send them a self portrait. I am generally the one behind the camera so my options were pretty poor. My wife and I were thinking about it and thought it would be fun to make some Batman t-shirts and play around with my son.

Self Portraits are harder than I thought, but I liked the results.
