Sentimental at heart, I value memories especially our shared memories. If you want to create lasting memories or make a great first impression where you and not the photographer is the center attention, we should talk.

Eli has a little "attitude." One of several shots as Eli played to the camera...

After several overcast days, the sun came out this afternoon. These photos are reflections in the back yard pool.

This was a fun night for Braden. Gram spilled her coke at the table and Braden go soaked... so into the tub... This shot and the two following were taken with available light with a Nikon D300 at ISO 3200 @ 1/60 to 1/100 second @ f/2.8 with a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens (auto iso and auto white balance shot at 12-bit raw). No noise reduction was used and the only photo shop adjustment applied was sharpening. I was impressed with the image quality and sharpness at this level of sensor sensitivity.

Dinner was messy tonight and Braden needed to clean-up afterward. "I'll do it myself!" were his words when his mom tried to help him finish up...

Not a happy camper here...

One of my favorite chameleon portraits. His colors really blend in with the background...

Went to the zoo today and spent some time with the chameleons. For most of the shots they were at an angle to me which limits how much of their body will be in focus. This was one shot where he was parallel to me. He was watching me out of the corner of his eye too...

Jessica is starting to get around now. Crawling and getting into whatever is available. I interrupted her while she was beating on a big stainless steel mixing bowl.

I had the chance to attend Timothy Academy's Christmas program. The program played to a packed house. There were lots of proud parents, grandparents and siblings. The pressure was really on the youngsters. There was lots of intensity in their eyes and most didn't relax until their part in the program was over. All the keepers can be seen on my Picassa Site.





















Toward the end of the evening.
