So it’s been awhile since the last blog.  Busy, busy, busy as they say; busy or overwhelmed. I would teeter to overwhelmed.  The summer pace has been one big seasonal  leap from June to now Sept  with the contradicting questions: did we releax enough, did we pack enough in?   So given that, not a lot of blogging happening but I hope to change that asap. Sorry to those that drop by here from time to time,  we’re still here and will be sharing some lovely stuff soon.   So with that I would like start with an image that was taken last year and has seen limited visibility.  It’s of my dear friend Rusty who’s birthday was this past week.  I could write pages about this man but will simple say that he has the gift of loving recklessly, giving without need for getting back and power of living in the present moment.  Happy Birthday my friend, what a party it was.

Susie - this is such a great picture of Rusty…artistically but mostly because looking at it I see him and his fierce and warm love. Thank you for that visual reminder from one who is far away for now.


our little lady has a huge capacity for happiness; she has certainly has expanded mine.

Stacy - margot, you cutie!! have a great trip and let us know when you get back – i need me some margot-snuggles.

Annie & Tom II

So happy to present once again Tom and Annie now married.   I must admit it was hard to narrow down the selection, I loved so many of their moments and exchanges.  Annie and Tom as you already know, the best is yet to come.  God bless you.       Psalm 103

Amanda & Jim

Recently I was privileged to watch Amanda and Jim see their wedding photographs for the first time; we got together at the studio where their wedding images were presented.  I got to see them sit a little closer, laugh a little, cry a little and even swoon a little.  Out of the 170 or so weddings I’ve photographed over the years that interaction never gets old and is always a reminder that this is special work I’m blessed to do.  So here are some favorites from the day.  Amanda and Jim, blessings and more blessings to you.

Monty - Chris – these are gorgeous. Love the connection on the toasting shot with her leaning on him, beautiful work.

Nick Fancher - Awesome stuff. I love the framing of the portrait with the steel structure. I also love the lighting in the first few. Looks like a film.

Farrah - Beautiful as always. The lighting in a few of these is so cool! And oh how I love that cathedral.

Carl McKinney - Amazing! It’s wonderful you were able to capture Amanda’s classic beauty in such an honest way. The processing feels natural and warm. I’ve never seen anyone use the Canneto sculptures like you’ve used them. SOOO Ill!!!!

Joy & Rich

With the backdrop of a llittle country church I had the privlelge of watching Joy (aptly named) and Rich blend their lives.  Their expressions tell the real story (as they always do) of the big love they share and their mutual excitement for the next chapter.  Thank you both and God bless all you coming days together.

Candis - These are really stunning. All of them.

Kylie Batt - Прошу прощения, что вмешался… У меня похожая ситуация. Давайте обсудим….
