Well, I'm still having some technical difficulties getting all my gear up and running. Just peeking in to say Hi.

This is one of my favorite photos. He ends up in more of my pics than any one or any thing because we are still very attached. We're always together. That, and he's just so darn cute.

One of the things I love most about photography is how I get to freeze a moment in time and keep it forever. This picture of a man and his dog going about the business of living brings me great joy. It's not even a technically good photo. It's just the look on their faces. They are happy and alive.

Katy's family

Experience is the best teacher, right? This shoot was one of those times I wished I had some actual technical instruction under my belt. Katy's family were all wonderful and very cooperative. The light was a different story altogether. We had natural light coming in from opposite sides of the room, but not quite enough. The overhead light was necessary, but cast heavy shadows. Tricky, tricky. I hope they find some shots they like.
