The New Parents...

My friends Chad and Amanda had their first baby girl, Julia Kathryn Bridle, three months ago. These are a few outakes from a studio session we did. Julia did not do a whole lot of smiling for me this day but she was quite entranced by the lights and there was no crying at all.

An Outdoor Concert

Baby Face

Okay so I couldn't resist. I spent most of last week on a wonderful family vacation in Texas where many of my relatives live outside of Dallas. Two of my cousins recently had babies. Parker is in the top photos and Brady is in the lower. These are for you Megan, Kristi, Shelley and Brian :)

Mis Hermanas

My sisters. They are so hot right now.

Do you ever have one of those days where you only want to shoot the random things that pretty much have no relationship to the story? That was me today.

Becoming An American Citizen

There is definitely something cool about watching someone take an oath of citizenship. I got to photograph people from all cultures and walks of life do this last Wednesday in a Naturalization Ceremony at the Gerald R. Ford Museum. There was an audio slide show by the end of the day but until Katie teaches me how to post those, a few images will do :)

Church Hats

These portraits go along with a story we are doing on the tradition of fancy church hats. We have a different photog. actually attending a service on Sunday but these portraits were pretty fun to make.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

I decided to post these rain features from festival as a tribute to all the wet weather we have been getting in Grand Rapids lately. I shot these about a month ago.

Summer In the Garden

This lady was working in one of our community church gardens last week and was kind enough to give me some flower bulbs. I don't remember what kind she said they are, but apparently they grow five feet tall and are red. I am not the gardener of our household but Chris planted them in the back yard. We will see what comes up!
