The first photography job of my short career is complete. There was much to learn, so I'm glad it was laid back and on a smaller scale to start. I'm freaking tired from retouching photos all last week—sleep deprived is certainly accurate. I decided to have some fun and get conceptual today. I took a shot of that which I'm totally longing for (my bed), and then put together a dream-like composite to accompany it. I haven't done much of this before, so it was fun, especially after working on portraits all week. Hopefully the pics will be a little more tasty from now on, since I finally figured out the stupid color profile mess. READ MORE
It's Kara's 25th today. I tried to be a sensitive guy and show off my baking skills. I made her a cake all from scratch. I've got sick baking skills it turns out.

And yes, that's right. A two-for-one Friday.   READ MORE
With loyal fan base now intact, the blog must go on. Tonight was another busy one, as we travelled up and down I-35. This shot was captured in the parking lot of David's Bridal just off of the interstate. I looked ridiculous with my fat camera taking pictures of lights in a parking lot. From there we went and certified our business by meeting with our accountant and registering our business. Pretty exciting, and fairly painless too. READ MORE
