Pet Portraits in the Snow

Some relatives dog had gotten puppies awhile back and on a recent visit I bundled up and went out and snapped some pictures of the puppies playing. Aren't they just adorable!?

Santa Meet & Greet

I helped a local school do portraits with Santa for their Christmas Program this year.
The volunteers did a great job decorating, the music teacher put up a great music program and the kids were delighted to see Santa. I just love portraits with kids, even in such different settings such as this one.
I just had to share some from this day - certainly gets you in the holiday spirit to see these.

Merry Christmas to all!

Christmas Portraits

Probably the last of the Christmas Portraits for the season.
Some regular portraits of 3 little kids. And then a group shot for a set of grandparents.

Happy Holidays!

Couple in the Autumn Leaves

One of my last outdoor sessions this fall was of this young couple.
They wanted more natural looking portraits around their neighborhood, most of the colors and leaves had came and went already but we manage to find a few bright spots for some good shots.

Here's a few of my favorites:

Autumn Family Portraits

I went out to a farm with 2 families a couple of weeks ago and captured some portraits of the families playing with the kids and just being families. Something a little different for me, since most that have came wanted the studio set up and "look here and smile" sort of portraits.

We certainly got portraits that were a little different than my normal ones - perhaps a trend is starting?
I also did a midnight sepia treatment on these samples to make them look a bit more "dreamy" - a good remedy against the harsh sunlight that day.

Here's a few of my favorites from that day...

Bridal Portraits

A few of my favorites from a bridal session I just completed a couple of weeks ago. Same couple that I completed the last wedding for last month. They wanted to revisit Lake Stephens where they got married and get a few more shots of just the two of them without the stress of the wedding.

The majority in the link below are with the beautiful autumn colors we had that weekend, but since I have a personal preference for B&W I thought I'd share a few of them here.

Autumn Wedding

I got the privilege to photograph an out of town wedding a couple of weeks ago. The wedding spanned from the bride getting ready through the evening reception.

I wanted to share a few of my favorites; sometimes simple is the best.

Its looking a lot like .... Christmas Portraits!

Covered Bridges

In between busy summer sessions and cool autumn months I started a new gallery - covered bridges.
There's something charming about driving across these bridges, a piece from another time....

You can find more of these wonderful structures in my gallery:

Reflections of childhood.

6-9 months - this is the age when little ones are starting to be fun to photograph.
They interact with you when you talk to them, they can usually sit or starting to stand so you can get a little better poses than the "I'm just laying here like a burrito" look. :)

Had the pleasure to work with this little ham a week ago, he was in SUCH a good mood and the mom got more than enough poses to choose from. Here's a couple of my favorite shots from this session:

- be sure to check out the collages as well!

Autumn = great color portraits!

With autumn fast approaching but still having the warmer weather, its a great time to think about outdoor portraits!  With the leaves still green or changing color, it can add so much to a outdoor portrait.

Weather you're a Senior, a family looking for a new portrait to hang over your mantle, a couple wanting to celebrate your engagement or just want new portraits - now is the time to call and book your session!


I had the privilege to photograph a few families over the summer.
I thought I'd share a few samples, but more can be found here:

It's hip to be square!

I always try to include at least a couple of collages with all my sessions. I know people like more bang for their buck and want to display a lot of photos - what a better way to do it than with a collages.

Recently I've been playing with square formats - my most recent bound photo books for clients are square, as are my new collages, I find them more eye catching than the regular 8x10 format.

Here's a few samples of my square collages - everything from babies, to kids, to seniors.

Happy Birthday USA!

Its been a few years since I was down in Charleston for their 4th of July fireworks.
I did manage to get down there this year and what a display it was:


Hopefully I'll have a chance to go down there again next year and get better seats/view of the display but the vantage point I had wasn't bad this year, just some extras in the picture (such as people, buildings, lights).

Spring Graduates!

A local preschool once again gave me the privilege to come photograph their graduates on graduation day.
I had a lot of fun and the kids were very co-operative as far as kids go. :)
I already look forward to next year!


Happy Graduation Day kids!

Wild & Wonderful WV!

Our beautiful state of West Virginia's got SO much to offer, and I'm starting to accumulate a lot of photographs from our travels around our state that I decided we needed dedicated gallery for them all.
Here's a few samples:

Please be patient while I upload them, but a starter collection can be viewed here:

Some new images in PAFP!

Spent a nice week down in Florida on the gulf (before the oil reached their beautiful beaches) in early June and snapped some new ones for my PAFP galleries.  I also snapped a few new ones from our beautiful state of WV: Hawks Nest and New River Gorge Bridge.

Images above is of: Cape San Blas Lighthouse, and a multi-species show capture.
Images above is of: the sun setting on a beach in Destin, and a shot from Hawks Nest, WV.

1, 2, 3, or why not 10?

I now offer portraits done with number props - they're perfect for birthdays, or can even be combined to show the year of a graduation or your number in a sports portrait! The possibilities are endless.
Check out these cute samples:

Something a little different.

With spring here I've been snapping a little around the gardens to add some color to my pictures after a long winter. Some pink geraniums and sorbet colored voilas adds splashes of color.

And trying something different for portraits - I visited a lake a few weeks ago and watching the kids try to skip rocks on the surface I noticed they got nicely silhouetted by the glare on the water and ended up with these portraits of them.

Next up - portraits!
