Bonnaroo '07

Well, we just returned from Bonnaroo 2007 where we were blogging for the Charleston Gazette. It was tons of fun but lots of work! I really enjoyed taking a break from my regular portrait work to stretch out my craft and shoot something entirely different. While on the trip I photographed artists such as: The White Stripes, Wolfmother, The Police, Ben Harper, Spoon, The Decemberists, John Butler Trio, John Paul Jones (Bassist Led Zeppelin), Wilco, Kings of Leon and The Flaming Lips. If you want to check out some of the coverage please click here.

Sarah and Chad

I wanted to share a couple of wedding images of the newlyweds Sarah and Chad Hovis of Charleston, WV. I went to high school with Chad's bother, Chris so it was especially enjoyable seeing so many familiar faces from Logan. It was a beautiful wedding and a wonderful day. Congrats Sarah and Chad!!!

Bridal Portrait?

I have been working diligently on designing a wedding coffee table album for Jessica and Jared Fox. While sorting through the images, I came across this fun image we shot the day of Jessica's bridal session. I thought it would be nice to share . . . so enjoy!!!

I was working with some of the new DUDs Diane created for our upcoming DVD which, as of yet, is untitled. (We're tossing around the name Tattoodles . . . simply because the designs are inspired by both doodles and tattoo art.) Basically, it will feature an eclectic collection of brushes for portrait enhancement. We hopefully will be putting out the DVD sometime late next week. I am in the process of writing a short article for an upcoming GP Albums newsletter and we are trying to coordinate the release with the publication of the article. If you want to check it out visit sometime soon.

Senior Season Officially Begins!!!

Well, hard to believe but it's already here . . . senior portrait season. I officially shot my first senior yesterday. It was Scott High School's Micah Ballard. (I want to give her shout out for being elected SHS Student Body President--way to go!!) Anyway, I have been photographing Micah and her family since she was about 7 years old, so it was really nice to start out the season with a friendly, familiar face. We got lots of really nice images and I want to share one that Micah and I were so very excited about!! I could hardly wait to get home to see these images we shot of her in this year's prom dress. We were really trying for something different and I think it turned out awesome!!

Baby Collection

I was up late last night (much too late I'm afraid) working on a new brochure for the Baby Collection. For having finished it at nearly 3 a.m. and in spite of my drowsiness, it turned out pretty well!!
I love shooting the Baby Collection images!! It's so much fun to share in other people's joy and to watch these children change so much in their first year of life . It's such a rewarding experience to able to help other capture their most treasured moments.
