SKETCHBOOK: Carson the Cutie

How can you not love that face? My new buddy Carson and I made some pretty nice photos the past weekend, including this one. You know how some babies are just happy? That’s Carson. The only break in the happy happened when he got hungry. Mom Megan fed him a little bit and, with some milk in his belly, he was back to his happy self.

SKETCHBOOK: My Third Lockhart

A few years ago, I got a chance to work with Abby, then her sister Emily and on Sunday, third sister Molly. And each of those young ladies has been their own dream to work with. Mother Lynn has raised four incredible daughters, of which I have now done senior photos of the eldest three. I’m hoping to make photos of all four. Continue reading “SKETCHBOOK: My Third Lockhart”

FOOTBALL: Valley vs Breckenridge County

The Valley High School football Vikings had to ride an hour away from their home base of Viking Harbor to meet the Breckenridge County Tigers. It was a fruitful trip for the Vikings record as they came away with the blow out victory 42-0. Valley dominated with smothering defense and a supercharged offense. In fact, it was the supercharged offense they started the season with before an epidemic of injuries sidelined amazing players for weeks at a time.

FOOTBALL: Western at Valley

The Valley High School Vikings took to the field at Viking Harbor last night to host fellow South End rival Western High School for a showdown. Was the game hard fought? You bet. Was it officiated fairly? Of course not. Did the Vikings make mistakes? Unquestionably. Did the referees look the other way on visitor penalties? Are you kidding me? They always do.

SKETCHBOOK: De-Fense…De-Fense

It’s another Friday game day for the Valley High School Vikings and they welcome Western High School into Viking Harbor to get this work.

SKETCHBOOK: I Kissed a Girl

No irony. No shock value. Tanya and Jennifer are getting married so yes, they kissed and girl and they liked it. Remember when, in the past, this would have been considered shocking and scandalous and my website would have been put on a nationwide banned list. Thank goodness the world got smart and decided, “well why not.” Continue reading “SKETCHBOOK: I Kissed a Girl”

SKETCHBOOK: Getting in the Dress

One of the main focuses of wedding photography on the day of the ceremony is the dress. And why not? Wedding dresses are usually one of the main takeaways from the day. The couple, of course, is the main focus and Rob and Brittany are awesome together. Even if you didn’t know them, you could see it just by looking at them. But think about what the next question usually is: didn’t she look stunning in that dress? Continue reading “SKETCHBOOK: Getting in the Dress”

SKETCHBOOK: Junior with Senior Skills

The moment Patrick Dumire stepped onto the field at Valley High School’s Viking Harbor he immediately represented an upgrade to the offense. And this was while he was an 8th grader. Now he’s a junior and he’s just getting better. Continue reading “SKETCHBOOK: Junior with Senior Skills”
