“The Embrace”

Could you figure out what it was? Well, it’s actually an abstract shot of my children hugging. Taken about 2 years ago to test my new camera and lens, this was the very first shot with my new gear. I was so impressed with the amount of detail in the file I decided to keep it. Later I grew to appreciate the emotional value of the image. Although my children very rarely get into any type of fight or disagreement, I thought it was a particularly genuine moment where they shared a very sweet embrace with one another. It’s kind of hard to decipher because there’s so much hair in the shot but, that’s exactly why I love it!  It just goes to show that sometimes the photos we dislike or maybe think very little of at first can eventually turn out to be some of our most cherished. I’m so happy I decided to keep it! ❤

The Embrace


Colorized

Although I love black and white images, and I’ve been shooting them more and more lately, I’ve always been known for images full of bright, bold colors. Here are just a few shots of various color patterns from my most recents travels.

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!

The First Signs Of Winter; Black & White

Happy Saturday everyone! The morning dew has now turned to frost. Temperatures have finally dropped. The plants, leaves, and grass are all frozen. I don’t mind at all…

Evening Shell

I noticed this very tiny shell in my driveway while walking back from my mailbox. I took out my phone to shoot it but, the shell was so tiny I had to lay on the ground to get close enough. I thought that it was interesting because, despite only being about as big as a grain of sand, from it’s position on the ground the light from the setting sun hit it just right to expose the many fine details. I love discovering things that would typically go completely unnoticed.

End Of The Year Favorites; Nadia Jenkins

Since this year is almost over I’d like to start sharing some of my favorite images of this year. First up, one of my absolute favorite people to work with Ms. Nadia Jenkins. Taken on a very hot summer day, the shoot was almost ruined by rain but, I told Nay she’d bring the sunshine out with her smile, and well…here’s just one of the resulting shots. Photographers always have their own reasons as to why they like a particular image, it doesn’t have to be technically correct it just needs to trigger an emotion of some kind or please their eyes. This image makes me happy. For that reason I’d to thank you Nay! 🙂
