New Music

This post is totally unrelated to the studio but I couldn't help myself. Earlier this week Kings of Leon released their new album, Only By The Night. Anyway, as a long time fan of the band, we got it on the day it came out and I have worn it out. I love it!! Check it out! Favorite tracks: Closer, Sex on Fire and Be Somebody Also, here is a photo of brothers, Caleb and Nathan Followill that I took during their performance at Bonnaroo in 2007.

AN-NE Award

I am so excited!!! I recently found out that I won an AN-NE award. The AN-NE Marketing Awards competition is held annually by the PPA, (Professional Photographers of America) and is the premier program for recognizing outstanding marketing efforts in professional photography.
I have been trying to win a category in this competition for years and I FINALLY achieved my goal. The award winning campaign was in the Multimedia category. It was for a senior marketing campaign I recently implemented using Animoto videos and iTunes podcasts. If you are interested in viewing some of these videos you can visit the iTunes store to check them out.

Senior Gallery

I was working on a senior gallery for Ashley Ross and I thought I would share the end result. Ashley is a senior at Logan High School and I have known her parents, Dean and Cherie, since I was very a small child. When I was young, my parents built a tennis court in in Verdunville and the Ross family lived next door. I spent many hours practicing on that court while growing up.
It was such fun to take part in the memories of a family I had know for so many years. Congrats Ashley and good luck in your senior year!!

Introducing Nelson Street

Recently, I was excited to get to meet the newest addition to the Street family. It's always fun when you have been a part of others lives for so many years to get to share in a new chapter in their lives. Jodi is originally from the Boone County area and I have been photographing people in her family almost since the beginning of my career. I also shot she and Chip's wedding a few years ago on Chip's family's farm in Virginia. It was such a beautiful wedding and such a joyous day. Well, now I was honored that they drove all the way from Virginia for me to photograph their newborn son, Nelson Parkhurst Street. He was so perfect and the session went awesome!! Here are some of the photos from the session. Enjoy!!
