Sarah and Pat

This past Saturday I was able to spend the day with a stellar couple, Sarah and Pat.  They were a blast to shoot and the unexpected Indiana heat wave made it a day to remember.  Here are a few shots.  Be sure to check back soon for the slideshow capturing the story of their day!

Chase Matthew!

Understanding firsthand the indescribable gift of a newborn and the chaotic weeks that follow, we attempt to bless friends with a meal and a few memorable shots.  We had a great time meeting Chase Matthew and his “Hollywood dog” Bruno.  Congrats Matt and Angie!

A Traderspoint Creamery Christmas!

This past weekend my family went to one of our favorite places in Indiana... Traderspoint Creamery located in Zionsville!  For years we have been going there to support the local farmers, check out the roaming chickens and cows, and of course to get some of the world's best chocolate milk.  Turns out they have the best eggnog too!  Not to mention it was one of the first places my wife uncovered a particular way of eating that our family currently adheres too, and we are the better for it.  

It's been rewarding to see the changes that have taken place there over the years. What used to be a little store (more like a cooler and a box for checks) and a few artisans on the second floor of the barn has morphed into quite a gathering of eco-friendly providers and a quaint eatery.  We have collected family memories and a few sweet dates of going there to dine.  However, the Christmas at the Farm experience has now been stored as what we hope to be a yearly tradition!  I think after seeing the pictures in the slideshow below, you may be swayed to do the same. . .

The Kid In Him

Over Thanksgiving I mentioned that I was able to spend time with my Grandpa who was a wedding photographer a while back and I was fortunate enough to be given his cameras. I'm excited to display them in my office! It's fun to compare them and see the changes that have occurred technologically.

Another toy he shared with us is his pride and joy Lionel Train Set complete with original boxes and the same headlight bulb since he got it in the 1930's. It's amazing to see this thing run so smoothly still. As I watched my Grandpa, it was as if he was a kid again. I had fun getting some shots of him with it. If you look closely into his eyes, you'll see a 13 year old boy playing with his favorite toy!
