Celebrating DeShaun's 6th Birthday

Saturday we went to Papa's Pizza for DeShaun's birthday party. Nothing too big. Just a few kids and a few friends. Everything has been crazy around here. We are cleaning and packing stuff. We have a week before we move. Still lots to do.

For You Bones

Hey Bones this is a different version of the image I was telling you about. Since you don't post this stuff, I figured I could post enough for both of us....I shoot enough of it :-)

Wednesday at Oaks Amusement Park

I had a newspaper assignment at Oaks Park on Wednesday. Here's a couple of portraits from that assignment. She roller skates competitively and has a chance to make it to nationals. I also took a few images of her skating but didn't like the way they came out. The night before the shoot I was getting my gear together. I had decided that I was going to use a White-Lightning and a softbox for the portraits. I would have had to bring my Vagabond battery along too. The next morning on my way out I decided it was too much crap and just took my cameras and 2 Canon Speedlights and 2 lightstands. It was a wise choice to travel light. Everything fit in one bag, except the lightstands.

DeShaun came with me to the assignment. After I was done working we went and got something to eat and then headed back to the park for some fun. He had a great time and didn't want to leave. I couldn't wait to get out of there. It was freakin' hot.

Happy 4th of July

I'm pulling an all nighter right now. I have to get some images shipped/emailed/ftp'ed out to a few clients in the morning. The sooner they get their images, the sooner I get paid. I figured since I was up, I would wish everyone a belated Happy 4th of July. This is a couple days late but who cares, right? Hope everyone had fun. One of the few days during the week that Jen and I both had off from work. I slept in until 10 and met Jen, DeShaun and Molly at the Hillsboro 4th of July parade. If you've been to any parade in Hillsboro, you've been to them all. DeShaun enjoys them though. I think it has to do with the candy that's thrown to the spectators.

After the parade we were going to take a ride to see our new home that is in the process of being built. Molly sprained her ankle so we took her to the emergency room. At first the doctors thought she dislocated her ankle and tore some ligaments but it turned out to be a really bad sprain. We stayed with her until Jules, her boyfriend, was able to make it. After that we went to Dexter and Paula's house for some food and fireworks. I left my tripod at home so I ended up hand holding my camera for firework photos.

The Assistant

Hey Cyndie, thanks for your help Friday. Sorry, I just had to add you to the blog. If you were thinking, you could have whipped out your camera, took a photo of me and plastered it on your blog. Then again I don't think that my face is blog material. Thanks again. Oh, did you find your way home? :-p

Going East

Caught up with my buddy Pete before he and his family head to R.I. on Monday. He is a fellow photographer that I had the pleasure of shooting with from time to time. Dude I will miss working with you. I will stay in touch and hope you do the same. And don't worry man, I will still have stuff to complain about so it will seem like you never left. When I visit my family back east we will have to get together. You can take the drive to New London and pick me up at the ferry. :-) Have a safe trip.
