yes, it’s been another long gap between posts, but my excuse this time is more than legitimate. our daughter was born early! Eight weeks early, to be exact, while we were out of town on vacation. so we spent 4 weeks in the hospital up north, then two more weeks at a local NICU, and now we’re home. baby and mom are doing great, so life is good right now.

bonus? i have a new photo subject. the above shot was taken at home. camera was 1/60 @ f5.6, lit with my homemade beauty dish.

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve updated.  If my level of busyness now is any indication of what life’s going to be like after the baby comes in 10 weeks, then I am in trouble.

Here are a few things going on:

I’m leading a photo walk on July 18th.  That’s the date of Scott Kelby’s second annual worldwide photo walk.  I participated last year, but this year thought I’d take the leadership role.  Should be a good time; I feel the route I’ve selected is a good one, and it’s already more than halfway full, so things are looking good.  Check it out, and sign up if there’s still room when you read this!


The lilies are blooming again.  Actually, they’re starting to die; I wished they lasted longer. I recently cut a bloom and brought it inside for a studio session.


Yesterday was my niece’s annual dance recital.  It was fun to watch.  My wife and I realized that in a few years we’ll probably be watching our daughter perform in a recital of her own.  I think it’d be fun to teach the class the Thriller dance.
