Congratulations on the birth of your new baby girl!

Craig and Kristi

Earlier today Nicole and I had the pleasure of attending a baby shower for our good friends Craig and Kristi.  They are expecting a baby girl, due in mid December.

Just the Two of Us

Nicole and I took a few minutes to take a picture of us together.  We had gone to the Louisville Constitution Day parade earlier in the day, so Nicole was painted with a lion paw and I was a little tired, yet very content.

Natural Light

I took this picture today using natural light from the window to the right side of the backdrop.  Maybe I’ll get to turning on some lights tomorrow, though I’m thinking I’m going to have to wait until it’s darker outside.

Nicole’s Band Recital

This evening I had the pleasure of experiencing Nicole’s last band recital of her sixth grade year.  The show was a lot of fun!  It’s amazing how far she’s come as a musician and as a talent on the trumpet.

Macy the Cocker Spaniel

Macy is Nicole’s dog.  She is a merle colored Cocker Spaniel, which translates into a bluish tinged black, grey and white coat.  Macy is a loved part of our family.

Nicole and Video Games

Nicole took some time out of her day to play Minecraft on the Xbox 360.  When she’s not playing Minecraft, her other Xbox titles include Kinect Party, Kinect Adventures and the Just Dance series.  On the Playstation 3, she has a whole other set of favorites.

Nicole the Creeper

When I saw the neat Minecraft themed stuff that Nicole brought home, I had to get her outside to snap a few quick photos.  She’s wearing a cardboard Creeper mask and she’s holding a Minecraft sword and pickaxe.

Toys for Tots

Tonight Nicole and I took a short trip to the Kent Stage is downtown Kent, Ohio.  We came to town to photograph Lo-Watt Radio’s set, but we managed to get shots of all of the night’s talented performers.  I interviewed Lo-Watt Radio for my goodsoundwaves.com audio appreciation site.


Today I had the opportunity to photograph Mandi in Western Pennsylvania.  She’s a pretty young lady and the niece of one of my best friends.  It was pretty hot outside, which made it a challenge finding some comfortable places to shoot.  I’m really looking forward to my next shoot with her, though I’d be happy to wait […]

Exotic Birds

Today we took a trip to Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut.  As part of our visit, we fed and held (well they landed on us) a variety of exotic birds.
