Happy Birthday Adayah!!!

I just want to take time out to say Happy Birthday to the little lady that I started this blog with over 2 years ago, Ms. Adayah Chambers. I can’t believe how much time has passed since her mom first introduced me to her! She’s so big now, plus she’s starting to look more and more like her Mom everyday. Wow…time is really flying!!!

The Gathering Part #2

I know I’m a few months late but, here are a few more shots from a shoot I entitled “The Gathering” back in October. I know these geese and ducks usually avoid human contact unless we’re feeding them but, for some reason they were attracted to this man and his granddaughter. In fact, so many started to arrive and surround them that they had to get up and walk away. I was just happy that I actually had my camera with me to capture it. This set of photos are some of my favorite from this year. It’s because of the spontaneity of the moment as well as the child’s reaction. I love genuine moments!

New Look Coming Soon

Happy Friday! I wanted to post this quick shot of my son taken a few days ago. This was the day before he decided to cut off all of his hair for the new year. Maybe I’ll convince him into letting me take an after shot of his new look? πŸ™‚

Christmas Day Adventure

Merry Christmas to you all! I had a wonderful day today! I spent the day in unseansonably warm weather shooting with my aunt Robin. We were able to navigate the city in peace and quiet since most people were inside eating and celebrating with their families. Even more important than the pictures we were able to capture today was the experience of being out together as family enjoying each others company, and doing something we both love. Doing what you love is great but, doing it with someone you love makes it even better! Below is just a sample of some of the shots that I captured. I hope you enjoy them. Please be safe and enjoy the rest of your holidays!

Hoop Dreams

Happy Holidays to everyone! I met these 4 young men while out shooting with a model one day over the summer. They explained to me that they’re a rap group but, that they were also willing to do whatever they could to make it, even basketball. I let them know that they can achieve anything they put their minds to and to never limit themselves. They asked if I was a photographer, and I replied yes. They proceeded to quickly huddle together to give me their best poses. I snapped a couple of frames and showed them the pics on the lcd. They LOVED the pics, thanked me kindly, and I wished them all good luck and success in whatever they choose to do. I love meeting good people of all ages, and photography allows me to do so all while making a brief connection in the process.
