Prom Night for London

What a transitional year for my family, mostly due to the maturation of my son London. He’s a high school junior. He just turned 17. He has a serious girlfriend. And he just went to his first prom. That young lady in the cover photo is Danielle and that was his date for that traditionally pivotal high school dance ceremony, this year at the Mellwood Arts Center.

Another Glimmer with Emma

When it comes to creating traditions, it’s a lot of fun when you do it with littles ones. About three years ago, we started going with Emma to the Kentucky Derby Festival Balloon Glimmer at Waterfront Park in Fest-A-Ville. I wrote a sneak peak last week after the Glimmer, but here are the others photos I took, starting with Emma herself. Continue reading “Another Glimmer with Emma”

SKETCHBOOK: Balloon Glimmer

I’ll have a full-blown post next week, but I wanted to share at least one photo from last night’s Kentucky Derby Festival Balloon Glimmer at Fest-A-Ville at Waterfront Park. It’s become a tradition with Misty, her best friend Becky and Becky’s daughter (my niece) Emma. This time around because of a scheduling conflict, Emma’s Uncle London couldn’t be there, but I told him not to worry because I was bringing back photos. I mean, it’s me. There will be photos. In fact, last year’s photos are here.

Spending the Day with Jaxon

It seems like it wasn’t that long ago that Jaxon and I collaborated on photos when he was just one year old. I chased him around the University of Louisville campus before he slowed down enough to do some of that fun smash cake stuff that we all love. So a couple of weeks ago, we met Jaxon and his mother Whitney at Farnsley-Moreman Landing for another photo session – including more chasing. Continue reading “Spending the Day with Jaxon”

Tonika Turns Four

I always enjoy a photo shoot with kids involved. It gives me a chance to turn on the Uncle Tim persona and attempt to get some real, genuine laughter and expression for the kids involved. Of course, they have the “cheese” face, which is what all of us have been told to mimic for as long as I can remember, whether being in front of or behind the lens. But when a kid shows real fun, those are the best. Tonika gave that to me in bunches. Continue reading “Tonika Turns Four”

A Little More Corey

Some weeks ago, I showed off a few photos of Corey during his time at the motocross park that became part of his senior portrait shoot. Then, over this past weekend, we shot the bulk of his portrait session at Waverly Park in Pleasure Ridge Park. Continue reading “A Little More Corey”

Imagine Mandy Harvey

I traveled to Horseshoe Casino in Elizabeth, Indiana on Saturday to cover the Imagine Awards event for Angie Fenton’s and Jason Applegate’s Extol Magazine and I feel honored to meet a most amazing entertainer. Her name is Mandy Harvey and she was the main performer on the program. Continue reading “Imagine Mandy Harvey”

FOOTBALL: Valley at Spencer County

The Valley Vikings ended their season last night with a loss at Spencer County, 28-7. It was a cold night with an ESPN style atmosphere with fairly loud music, a large marching band and an animated announcer. You could tell it was a playoff atmosphere and Spencer County was quite excited to host the first round of the district playoff game. Continue reading “FOOTBALL: Valley at Spencer County”

FOOTBALL: Valley at Waggener

The Valley High School Vikings had another hard fought battle last night, this time against Waggener. It was even the WHAS11 Game of the Week. Too bad they didn’t broadcast the game because it was a 16-on-11 mauling where the 11 football players and 5 officials in Waggener’s favor dropped the hammer on the Vikings 34-13 in a non-conference game so luckily, the loss doesn’t affect their playoff standing.
