Lack of Updates

Updating my blog has not been high on my priority list lately, so I thought I'd write a brief post just to let you know that I am still an active photographer (just not blogger).  I post more--though still not all--of my sessions on my facebook page, so if you would like to see some of my more current work, here's a link:

Current session information, including pricing, can be found by clicking the "Session Information" tab above.  I look forward to working with you and your family.  Thanks for stopping by.

Parrott Mother/Son Session

I had planned to take Christmas vacation off, but I ended up with 3 requests for portraits during that time.  Besides helping pay for Christmas, there were other perks to working during the holidays.  My favorite lens stopped working on December 27, during this session.  And the warranty expired on December 31st.  So I’m thankful for this session because I love my job, I really enjoy being around this family, and because it helped me take enough  pictures that the lens failed during the warranty period instead of after.  Thank you Katie!!

I’ve been to this park dozens of times and knew it had some great spots for pictures, but I’d never noticed the rail road tracks near the entrance of the park (possibly because there’s a road over part of them, which means no trains).  We decided to stop there for some of our pictures, and I love what we got.  There were other good ones from the park, but these at the track turned out to be my favorites:

Thanks Katie!  Your boys are really wonderful.

Fun at the Fire Station

We had a wonderful Christmas break with our extended family this year, but one of the highlights for my boys was visiting their uncle at the fire station.  It was fun for them to hear the other firemen call him “captain,” and they learned that you should never go down the fire pole in shorts (ouch!) or large belt buckles (scratches the pole).  The goal was to learn fire safety, so hopefully some of that stuck too, but it didn’t make it into the conversation in the car on the way home.  Here are a few pictures of my boys learning about fire safety, belt buckles, and how much cooler you look if you use a bigger ax:
