harnessing the power of photography for good


I Poo in Blue

I’ve been blessed with a beautiful bride and son. I have found out during the past 19 months that being a daddy has no equal. Hayden is my joy. I love you prince!

We Remember

Thank you to all who serve and to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, we’re forever thankful.

Sun Tanned Toes Ticklin the Sand

After weeks of Hayden pointing out my clothes on the floor and yelling at me for putting my shoes in the wrong place I realized he needs to get out more. So me and Hayden took a little trip to the beach this past Saturday for a day of sun and sand.

Tech Tuesday: Shoot Taylor Swift

I’m not ashamed to admit that I listen to Taylor Swift. In fact, we usually play her, or Carrie, during our Military Monday Shoots. Anyways Sony in their desperate attempt to take me away from Nikon has a new cybershot with Taylor’s autograph engraved on it. Thankfully they were on backorder and I didn’t make the mistake of dishing out $500 plus the costs of memory sticks which would have caused my early death due to my wife strangeling me leaving Hayden an orphan as she spent her life in jail . . .

Anyways the cool marketing behind this camera allows you to shoot Taylor Swift’s face, with the camera, and then she’ll personalize it and autograph it for you, what a sweetheart. Have fun . . .


The Best Day

I’m blessed to know the love God has for his children through the love I have for my son. To be willing to sacrifice Him for our sins is a love story like no other. Hayden and I spent mothers day together at Sea World, unfortently mother’s day is Alicia’s busiest day of the year as she is a florist. Anyways it was the best day I’ve had with Hayden and just wanted to share some shots.

smile mon! 2 days to cayman…



hot lights are great for keeping food warm

last monday we took a break from shooting military families and opened up our time for shooters to come and practice shooting under the lights in a “studio” setting.  the lights are constant, borrowed from production.  not the most ideal for photography, but they were free.  plus, part of the fun of photography is learning to shoot in conditions less than ideal, because much of the time, we have no choice.  kind of like what God said to Job,

Job 38:19  Where does light come from, and where does darkness go?

as photographers it would be great to be able to control the sun and moon, to get the most ideal light for each shoot, but we cant.  thats what monday was all about.  having fun while shooting…pluse it was nice to have some folks come and let us take pics of them.

id like to thank hayden for blessing us with his skills and not charging us his normal rate to pose for us.   the lamb sisters for being so much fun to shoot, and victoria and nicole, for blessings us as well.

most of the pics i took were using an old projector hooked up to my computer.  we projected different pics of textures on a screen.  what i didnt see was the images we used had a fine grid texture to it, and wasnt noticeable in camera…oh well, made the pics look more moody and dramatic.

lisa took this last photo below of hayden

hayden relaxing, his work was done

Alicia in Wonderland

I have been blessed to serve alongside my fellow Rock Photographers now for the past 2 years despite the fact that they choose to shoot with mediocre Canon cameras. GO NIKON! Being able to document God’s work through the Rock Church has been the greatest experience I have had as a photographer. I have been blessed to serve yet I would like to acknowledge my beautiful Bride of 5 years (almost 😉 ) for the sacrifice that she has given to this ministry as well. My wife isn’t the greatest fan of cameras and doesn’t share my passion of photography, but she is willing to sacrifice her time with me to allow me to pursue my passion and DO SOMETHING! As i am blessed to be behind the lens of a wonderful Nikon camera I am more blessed to have my wife behiond me suppporting me in this ministry. I love you princess, and although ypou will hate me for posting this at least enjoy some pics of our wonderful prince Hayden 🙂

the secret weapon

Laurel Street almost had Hayden serving, unfortently 7AM is his Kryptonite
