My last post was in December, 2012. That is crazy. I promise, it’s not because I’ve been slacking. A few fun things happened in 2013, including this little guy:Being a stay-at-home-dad-wedding-photographer (two official job titles in one) over the past 3 1/2 years has been a challenge, but getting spend so much time with my boys, watching them grow, has been amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. On the other hand, obviously, my time is very limited. Most of the time I’m able to work is spent simply getting the job done – shoot, edit, design, print, deliver, repeat. Hence the reason this blog has been neglected for 17 months. The shift in priorities has been from growing to maintaining.
With that said, I really miss sharing my work! So although it will require quite a bit of back-tracking, I’d like to share what (and who) I’ve been capturing since my last post. I’d love to dedicate a single blog post to each wedding, but I simply can’t (the 9 month-old next to me agrees), so posts will most likely be random favorites. Here’s just a glimpse of the awesome people I’ve had the honor of photographing over the last year+.
Amanda and Matt celebrated their first anniversary on the 11th of November with a portrait session… a very easy way to ensure that they’ll never forget it! They were such a pleasure to hang out with and photograph. We wandered around downtown for a bit before heading out to Gates Pass hoping for an amazing sunset. The best lookouts were packed full, maybe due to the perfect weather, so we missed out a bit on the sunset. However, being an “available light photographer” (the lighting kit in my camera bag was available) has its perks. We ended up hiking a bit and finding an awesome little spot to get creative with some off camera lighting.
Thanks to Shannon K. Photography for the opportunity to photograph this couple!
Just a short post today with a few favorites from an awesome recent family session. These kids were full of energy and were best photographed “on the run”… literally. I’m sure I looked like a dork chasing them around with the camera, but honestly, that’s my favorite way to photograph kids. I managed to get a few semi-stationary portraits of the kiddos…
