Sometimes you get most of the subjects in a photo looking just as they should, and other times you just have to add a little Photoshop love to a couple of them to bring it all together. We love getting those ideal family portraits, but there is something just plain funny about what happens when you are getting those portraits.


And another little video too.

Beth & Family

A short video of Beth and her family. Without going on and on, let me just say it's amazing how you can be inspired by different people. Especially those that can ride the storm of difficult times with grace and a smile. This family has inspired me for that reason. More than I'm able to find words for.

Too Many Rolls?

I've heard it and I believe it, that keeping your blog up to date is important, and shows those checking in that you are keeping busy. The thing is, I'm keeping busy enough that I haven't found time to be posting on my blog. Shame on me. I think I may have too many rolls. Wife, mommy, friend, t-ball supporter, elementary school supporter, pre-school supporter, cleaning lady, chef, family CFO, cruise director... and that's just the start of the home stuff. You don't want me to bore you further with the job stuff at this time. I love all these rolls, but it's not easy with only 24 hours in the day.

The great thing is, I am keeping busy. I've been continuing my education, photographing some wonderful families, and even playing around with some images when I get the chance. But those wonderful families I told you about need me to get their images to them, so until the next time, enjoy all your rolls too, and make sure you don't forget to take care of yourself along the way.

Play Ball!

We are now a baseball family. T-ball actually. Opening day ceremonies included an appearance by Mr. Padre himself, Tony Gywnn! We had a blast watching Charlie's first T-ball game. Check out our little movie. You'll learn that I'm a still photographer at this time for a reason. If you want a videographer, hire a professional.
The fun songs are by Trace Adkins and Everlast & House of Pain.

Miss Lakeside Rodeo Queen, Emily Gay

We recently had the absolute pleasure of photographing the 2008 Lakeside Rodeo Queen, Emily Gay. She is just as sweet as she is beautiful. We had a wonderful time photographing her near her new home out in Japatul. Just like many times before, Donna and I said we weren't going to take too many photos, but it's hard to stop when you are having so much fun, and the images are rockin'. Here are a couple from the day.
