I’m Back!

Well, this has certainly been a busy time in our lives. My lovely wife and I built our new home over the past summer and I am ashamed to say that I barely picked up a camera unless I was taking a picture of granite or a lighting fixture. Thankfully, our dear neighbors and good friends asked if I would be willing to snap some christmas pics of the kids who have named us Mr. JP (“P” stands for Party Man) ¬†and Miss Erica and it has snapped me out of the photog slump. Below is a collage of some of my favorites.

Thank you to the Sangasy Family for letting me borrow the kids for some fun with the camera!

New logo, new site

It took quite a few nights into the wee hours of the morning, but the new design of my site is finally feature complete. Thanks to the good folks at FastLineMedia, my homepage is simply stunning at I was also thrilled to see my new logo in my inbox tonight and I had a chance to roll it out to the entire site and update all of my watermarks.

Please stop by and become our fan on Facebook if you like what you see.

The monkey and the rings…

Having not had a shoot since obtaining my newest piece of glass, the legendary portrait lens (Canon’s 85mm f/1.2L MK II), I wanted to take it out for a test drive.

The shots, taken wide open at f/1.2 are of a Valentine’s present from years past (my singing and dancing monkey) proudly showing off my wife’s engagement ring and wedding bands. The depth of field is stunning and I cannot wait to use it in my next shoot.

The blog is live!

Thanks to the good people at Flora Bella and MCP Actions, I threw this together in about 10 minutes.
