First Maternity Shoot


I had the privilege of taking some photographs for my niece this past weekend. She is due about 6 weeks from now.





It was a blast working with Melissa. I was also able to use some of my new gear from MPEX. I now have the ability to use flash off camera and change the lighting angles.

I was amazed at how many different poses professionals use. My creativity will surly need to grow and with that so will my portfolio.

More Hockey

This weekend I had a great friend let me barrow his 70-200 2.8L lens. This lens is almost essential for taking sports pictures. It is even more helpful in the poorly lit hockey arenas. This was also the first time I was able to take pictures of my youngest nephew playing. He did great, minor tripping penalty aside.


He is not afraid to do anything and everything in his power to get that puck.


This looks like defeat but I think he was just skating away.


He has such intensity on the ice.

Maternity Pictures

This last Sunday I took some pictures of my niece. She is due in about 6 weeks. She wanted some cute pictures and I just wanted more experience.

She recently went to a local photography studio where she was told she could have a free sitting. When she got there they wanted a sitting fee and were charging quite a bit of money. It worked out well for me to take some pictures because it will help me expand my portfolio and she gets some great pictures. At least I think they are great.

I will be posting some of the pictures over the next couple days after I get her a copy.
