Here is one of the shots from our annual Fall Pumpkin Patch shoot. 4th year in a year we shot at Baldwin Farms in Richmond, KY. I’ll be posting more as I finish the edit.
Natalie and Connor joined me for the second half of our women’s soccer game against Cincinnati. Connor loves sports and he loves taking pictures… even when the camera is too heavy to hold. Connor’s turn. shot of daddy (notice the lens hood has shifted) self portrait (trying to pick up the camera) takin pics of [...]
(5.24.09) The day I got back from camping with Chuck and Steve, Connor and I went to Lake Reba for some guy time. First we stopped at Dairy Queen and got some chicken strips… ate those while watching some soccer. Then we went “Fake Fishing” with his Pirates of the Caribbean fishing pole. I shot [...]
A picture might be worth a thousand words. For this picture… this moment, only one word need be said. LOVE. love
Even though Connor is showing evidence he’s locked tight in his terrible 2′s… he’s just toooo darn cute for words. So, I’ll just show you some shots Nat and I grabbed today of our little punk.
I was watching “She’s All That” this past Sunday and one of the underlying conflicts of the main character is the pressure he feels to continue in the footsteps of his father. You see examples everywhere of fathers putting undo stress on their sons to do what they do… to love what they love… to [...]
Early this morning I was dreaming about Connor and just before I awoke he said to me… “All that I can ever be is a likeness of you… be gentle, be patient, be kind, teach me, hug me, love me… and show me you do everyday.” I began this Saturday morning, teary-eyed and thankful. Connor’s [...]
This past Saturday we took a trip to Natalie’s home town of McCreary County and we stopped by a kids festival of sorts that was sponsored by a church from Somerset. We couldn’t miss an opportunity to let Connor have some fun doing his favorite thing, sliding. I wonder if he will be a professional [...]
It doesn’t get any better than this. Connor coming home from “school” and just happy to be alive. I have to believe that we all felt that way when we were kids. What happened? Moments like this remind me that happiness is in the smallest little details. We spend too much time waiting for something [...]
At the suggestion of our friend April, we took Connor to get his hair cut at a place in Lexington called Kiddie Kutters. It’s a “salon” for kids. There was a pretty big slide right when you walked in. As you might imagine, it was a big hit with Connor. All the seats were cool [...]
This photo was taken last Saturday night at the EKU basketball game. I shot it from where I was sitting on the side of the court. This was the moment just after my son’s first kiss… French Kiss (if I’m going to be accurate). The beautiful little girl trying to get Connor’s attention in the [...]
Here are some more photos from our trip to Lake Reba on Saturday 2.16.08. This is also to test how a multiple image post will display in this blog. By the way, I’m testing out different themes right now. So, if the appearance seems to be changing all the time… that’s because it is. I [...]
The weather was pretty decent today 2.16.08, so Natalie suggested that we head to Lake Reba and let Connor run around. Our first attempt at sticking Connor in a swing didn’t go so well… actually, all attempts at swinging were a failure on his fun scale. BUT, we decided to let him try out the [...]
