yes, it is true. (the one you are on right now) will now be considered my archive blog. because of the abundant posts and gazillion pictures that i have loaded to this source, i will continue to keep this blog live and may do so as long as i can...but...if you're wanting to follow the current posts of my blog, see the latest work, ramble with me on the most current rambles... then i'd recommend you update your records of my new blog.
the new blog source for all my blogging goodies is (really quite simple)

look forward to seeing you over there!

a boy and his horse

matt child had this photo shoot itching on his mind for about two years. it was something he knew needed to be done, but it was a bittersweet shoot to swallow. his horse of 29 years has unfortunately become lame and it has become time to let the old friend be lifted from this life...a boy and his horse. matt was only 14 years old when he was given the gift of this horse, and now it has come time for the family and he to say goodbye.
my best to you child family...and a sincere thank you for giving me the opportunity to photograph such a personal and touching story.

what's your story? (let's shoot it)

slurping bridals

i truly love my job.
and having fantastic photo shoots such as rachel's is why. the inspiration for the slurpee theme was purely rachel's idea. she is a big fan of Tori Amos and the story goes as this...upon the time of Tori's own marriage she was quoted as saying the following in reference to her song titled "Jackie's Strength": "There’s one side of me that could very easily have ended up at the 7-Eleven sitting outside drinking a Slurpee in my wedding dress and just missing the whole thing. And then there’s the other one that did make it to the church. So, this song is about the one that drank the Slurpee. She’s still out there somewhere.”
as for the rest of the shoot we chose to keep it simple, no flowers, nothing fancy, just rachel with striking features and a gorgeous dress against a plain wall.
