Flowers in Mason Jar

Here is a photo from today.  Just playing around having fun with photography.  We found this Blue Mason Jar in an antique store a few weeks ago.  My wife put the flowers in it and it decorates our kitchen counter.  I have always been fascinated by light coming through glass and it was a bright sunny day outside, perfect for this sort of photo.  A little photoshop magic and it has a nice vintage-y look to it.  Enjoy

Throwback Thursday

Thursdays will be my throwback day, unless of course it happens on a different day.  But Throwback Thursday already exists so why break the norm.  Here is a photo from my early digital days.  Shot with a Nikon D1x which at the time was a whopping 5 megapixels.  Oh my gosh we were in heaven with such a large file!!  This photo really made me realize the how amazing it was to capture the emotion of the day.    

Website Update

If you have been on my site the past few days you would have seen it changing and changing back and then changing again.  I have found a theme I like but I am in the process of personalizing it.  It’s getting there, but it’s not there yet.

For those of you out east enjoying the storm or for those of you that are ready for spring, here is a photo that will warm you up.

Abby & Keith Winter Engagement

A few weeks ago I photographed Abby and Keith.  They wanted snow for their photos.  They are having a winter wedding and thought engagement photos should be the same.  This winter didn’t seem to promising for snow.  No snow at Christmas, just a lot of brown and sticks for trees.  We were scheduled for Saturday morning and we would try a few and finish with some indoor photos against a background.  We woke up Saturday to white everywhere!!  I would like to say I made a call and arranged that for them but I don’t have Mother Nature’s direct line.  I do know a Hollywood effects person who specializes in snow, but it would have been cheaper flying somewhere to go to snow.  So, back to snow in Appleton.  We had a great time in the snow, they were even brave enough to just be in shirts.  We built a snowman and even had a snowball fight, which the cameras survived.














A new look

There are some changes in the air for my website/blog. Not necessarily brought on by myself, but by whomever hacked into my website. I use WordPress, have for years. It is pretty straight forward and easy to use. One day I am on my site and the next day my site isn’t working. Come to find out I was infected with malware, a lot of it. So we now have a new look. if you keep coming back to my site you will find that it will be changing. I am trying to find the right theme, and I am not there yet. I will have it soon. So, for now you can enjoy the ever changing look of my site or you can visit my other site.

Thanks for stopping by!
