Just to drive you all a bit crazy!!!

I never want anyone to say I don't try things. I've moved temporarily to a Wordpress blog with a horrible name I hope to transfer from that one to a better version soon (a month or two). In the mean time I didn't want you all going to the wrong blog and wondering why their isn't anything new. So here is the link to the TEMPORARY blog "New Blog"
Thanks for the patients of growing pains,

Tumble in 2014!

My Tumblr. That's right, I'm changing. Why? Ummm. No good answer. I just feel like I do the same old same old and because of that I'm never up here. I was going to get rid of the BLOG all together and just use Facebook but then I realized that FB is evil and I don't want to do that so I'm going a bit more artsie fartsie (can I say that? not sure if I spelled it right). So please check it out... in a day or so. I don't have anything but a hello on it so far. It even has a question page! Eeee! interaction!
In about a week or to you will see an updated website more blog content and, well, not much more on evil FB (can't win them all).

A little to chew on

I've been reminiscing again and afraid I did something about it. I was introduced to photography way of film and darkrooms. Well as much as don't want to get into a darkroom for the business I may anyway and I'm going to on a personal level. In fact I've already started shooting film again including some large format 4x5 (like Ansel Adams)at a wedding I was second shooting at just this past Sunday. I'm hoping for good results. All of this will be explained soon and it may even happen on a new blog (don't hold your breath, just in case).
See you all soon,

Things are about to get interesting!

As many of you already know, my wife, who is also my photography companion, and I are expecting our first child this June. For those who didn't know... SURPRISE! This of course meant, as far as wedding season was concerned, that I was on the look out for assistance on weddings. For the most part that has been resolved, for the most part(again).
Over all I have nothing but joy with the idea of bringing someone into our little world here. With all of it's ups and downs I'm sure it will bring to our lives I do look forward to it all.
With this change there will be some with the business as well. I have all ready moved myself into a home office for the day to day operations. With that said, their is a far amount of paperwork that I have had to store at the studio so please be patient with me in regards to getting answers to you. On the photography side I have decided a new thought as well. I have done most of my maternity sessions in studio with only a few in a fun location. More often than not we all have fun and of course we get some great images. This may change a bit. Having the captive subject of my wife I got a chance to do another maternity session. We were going to go over to the studio but we kept getting busy. Then I have had the good luck (sarcasm) to get sick, but that didn't stop me from my duty as a photography husband. I set her up in the nursery, grabbed a couple of lenses, a flash with triggers and started shooting. I have to admit that it just seemed to flow well and be very natural. That's saying a lot for both of us(try photographing some one you know. It's not so easy). I'm hopefully attaching the slide show of it below for all the world to see. I'm sure Kari will be thrilled (more sarcasm).
I hope to see many of you over the summer season. I'll be running a few portrait session specials that you shouldn't pass up. Keep an eye out here and over on facebook.


Hello all you loyal followers. As most of you have seen I have managed to post for 5 days straight on FB then nothing. Welcome to cold and flu season. Luckily it's been the cold not the flu. I'm sure that I've had 3 colds in the last month and a half. I'm almost done with it and when I can focus on photographing something other than the inside of my house I will be back (please don't say that like Arnold would).
Just so that you don't have a full on withdrawal here is an image I took about 18 years ago with a Richoflex IV twin lens camera. It's almost as bad as a Holga. I also believe that is Kari in the right of the photo. Looks as if she was taking a few snaps too.

WOW ITS 2013

The blog that hasn't was the other possible title of the post but I figured I would keep it a bit more fitting  since it's January 1st 2013. In deed it is and I hope we can have a beautiful relation ship... well, what I mean is that I'm hoping to keep on top of "social media" this year (it's in quotes because of my dislike of using my time this way when I could play with my dog). I think I've mentioned my more common use of FB and Twitter which I would strongly suggest looking me up if you want to peek into my window... I mean, see what I'm up to. Plan on seeing a Photo a Day for the entier year. They won't all be hi-end but they will be interesting, fun, beautiful or just a bit confusing. No matter what I would not want to miss out. Not thinking I can keep up that on this blog it may be a photo a week. We'll have to see.
This is only step one in taming the beast (social media) and as always trying to move groove and improve.

HAPPY 2013 and we look forward to working, connecting and re-connecting with all of you this year!


Sunday. Just a day to rest for an average American but not for Super Photo Man and his wife Photo Girl... never mind.
It was a Sunday and we did go out with the intent of super photos. In my humbles opinion (not) I think we R.O.C.Ked. This was the last in a very busy weekend of amazing photo shoots. This is, in fact, Jill and Matt's amazing engagement session over at Elizabeth Park in West Hartford. From photo one it was like... I'm getting sappy and insightful, not me. The whole point is we had a blast.
Enjoy the images.
