It's DONE!

Well, at least the design is done! Here is my recent and 1st Storybook Wedding Album design. This puppy has been hanging over my head... to get it DONE! This was for sure, a labor of love, I wanted it to represent not only my photography, but my design and layout talents, as well as my concept to completion capabilities.

If you would like to see the entire book (20 open book pages), go to I'm very proud of what I have completed, so I'd love for you to go there and look at it. Tell me what you think?

In the spirit of Exhibition

OR is it?
Was it Shakespeare who wrote, "What's in a name?" Don't ask me what play it was, but I think the quote is his... if not, feel free to correct me...

Anyway, I'm trying to find three photographs to enter into a "photo of the year" contest... and I am having the hardest time choosing what I want to submit. I shoot thousands of photos every year... but this year was different... I was very preoccupied with OTHER things and didn't really shoot a whole lot of variety... at least compared to my normal outflow...

So I am searching through my computer for things I shot during 2006 and I come across this photo of a woman at an art exhibition. I actually found her more interesting then the art at the show... so I quietly and secretly took her picture... I find her presence between the art VERY interesting... especially since she is so engaged in what she is looking at...

What do you think? Should I enter this one... is it interesting to you? Is anybody out there... ?

I'm trying to decide what to name this photograph too... hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

2007 Already!!?

Jeese, it was just the summer a couple of days ago... what happened to 2006, where did it go? Either I was REALLY busy, or I was having a GREAT time! It was both!

As I look back on 2006 I can see so many changes that have come to pass in my life. I have begun to lose weight, my business is headed in a multi-million dollar direction, my marriage is awesome, and most of all, I am having the time of my life! I can truly say, 2006 was a fine year to be had.

Sadly though there were some doors closed during the year of 2006, but I now realize that those doors HAD to be closed... and probably forever... and that this is actually a really GOOD thing! There are people who were a part of my life for MANY MANY years who just sort of disappeared... they made their exits in all different fashions... some of them were quiet about it, and others quite abrupt... either way, I now realize that their exits needed to happen. I wish them the best and thank them for all of the life lessons that they brought to me, without them, my life would not be as perfect as it is.

Now, for the new people who have entered... YOU ARE AWESOME! All of the new friends (and family) that I have made especially since July of '06 (706) are really something to behold... the level of integrity is a gift. I look forward to the adventures we will experience together...

Happy New Year to ALL!
