Holiday Dance Portraits: Friends Edition

Sneek peek at more dance holiday portraits. These two have been dance friends for over 11 years!

Molly and her sisters have been in front of my lens many times for many years

I’ve also had the pleasure of photographing Jordin in the past.

The best part of a friend’s session is the group poses. These two didn’t disappoint and wanted to get them right!

I’m quite pleased with the duo pose. It was a late find by my wife. I didn’t think they could pull it off with dresses, but they did it!

Ready for your friend’s dance portrait session? I have a few spots remaining before the holiday. Contact me today for more information or to schedule your session.

The Magic of a Christmas Tree Lighting

There’s something extra special about the magic of a community Christmas tree lighting

Is it the chocolate chip cookies?

Is it the music that is playing?

Is it the gathering of community on a chilly night?

Or is it the arrival of Santa on a Stewartsville Vol. Fire Company fire truck?

Or is it Mrs. Claus?

Or does it have anything to do with so many people wearing Santa hats?

I know, it must be the look of pure happiness and joy and amazement when a child talks with Santa!

Or is it the singing of Christmas carols by real candlelight on a chilly evening?

Whatever it is, my Christmas wish is that it comes back and visits our community every year!

Merry Christmas!

Here’s To The New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s easy to get caught up in everything that needs to get done: decorations, travel, parties. But it is also at this time of the year that we take a moment to pause and reflect on the year’s journey. We take stock of the love and good fortune that surrounds us, look over the memories of the last year, and give thanks for all those who helped us to create memories throughout the year.

As we look forward to 2017, a year full of potential and hope, we are grateful that you have chosen us to capture and share your memories and events with us and we look forward to sharing all your future adventures.

Happy New Year!

You know that moment when you finally find some time to wrap gift AND find the tape AND find the scissors AND have ENOUGH wrapping paper but then you CAN’T FIND ANY GIFT TAGS? Yeah me too. So a few years ago I either made some or download some from the internet (can’t remember which) and I use them each year. You can download a PDF by clicking on the image of them above. Simply print them to a color printer with mailing address label in them and the work great!  I use 8160 labels that have 30 per sheet in 3 columns and each label is 1″ x 2 5/8″ If the PDF doesn’t work for you let me know and I’ll upload and/or send you a Word document of the same.

Happy Holidays! And Happy Wrapping!! 🙂


Wreaths Across America

This was a very nice ceremony yesterday. With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday, its easy to forget about those who served our country, past and present. You may say wasn’t veteran’s day just a few weeks ago? Yes it was. What I liked most bout this organization is it encourages the youth to get involved. There were several boy and girl scouts there as well as children of those attended.

Each family/person was given two wreaths. They were asked to go out in the cemetery and find the grave site of a veteran. Then there were asked to clean it off, straighten the flag, and place the wreath. They were encouraged to say a few words thanking them for their service to the country. In many cases, they are the first visitors to the grave site in a year.

This was SO GOOD! My Mom traditionally get this for Christmas and Easter. Its getting harder to find. Thanks to my cousin Joan Harriet for getting it this year.

For those unaware of what this is, its also called honey balls which more accurately describes what it is. This is a close up photo. The balls are only 1/2” or 3/4” max in size. Then a honey mixture is drizzled over them. Yum!
