Dinner with Friends!

Today we had dinner with our good friends/old neighbors and they have quite possibly two of the cutest little girls.  I snapped some shots as they were playing.

Check out those blue eyes!
My boy knows a good catch when he sees one.  These two are gonna be stunning on their wedding day in about 20 years or so!

4 Day Photo Shoot in NYC!

I'm so excited about my first trip to THE BIG APPLE! Next Thursday I head out to NYC for a FOUR DAY- 24 HR/DAY - PHOTO SHOOT. There won't be much time to sleep. The plan is to wake up, grab our gear and head out all day and most of the night. My amazing wife has encouraged this opportunity and is being the stellar mom that she is juggling the kiddos on her own.

This will be a great time for growth professionally. Not only will I be surrounded by other photographers/friends who know the real sites to see, but I'll be challenged shooting landscape instead of people. I love a good challenge and believe there is always a lot to learn and gain from the experience. How are you challenging yourself to grow?

I've been watching this clip multiple times a day to prepare me. Great city & great song!

Best Looking Couple Award!

Okay, so maybe we didn't win any award...and I admit my wife is the good looking one; HOWEVER, we are a couple -- so we've got that much going for us.

Yesterday my friend (and guru photographer Jason Lavengood) and I spent the whole day doing a photo shoot of my wife for a make-up artist/hair stylist.  We both got some amazing shots (stay tuned for my post of the shoot) and I just had to jump in for one of my wife and I together.  Jason is a master of Photoshop and had a lot of work to do to me, but this is the final result of just one of many.  Check out his site for a few more!

Kelly and Jay

Kelly and Jay, their family, and friends are these amazing people that made me feel like a RockStar!  They were so much fun to be around; I only wish it could have been longer.  I love this shot of them below.  Be sure to check out the slideshow too!

Alig Family

The other day I got to spend time with my friends, the Alig family, including my future daughter-in-law.  We hung out at the park running around, wading through a stream, and of course... taking some pictures.  Here's a quick show of some of the fun we had.  Enjoy!
