It’s tough to find a full-time teaching position in February. I graduated from UND with a music education degree in December. I loaded up my Ford Explorer with as much as I cared about and headed Southwest to California where there was a girl waiting for me.
When I got here, I had nothing to do. There was only one reason for me to get up in the morning before 10:00 a.m. I had to teach a wild bunch of fifth-grade boys how to play drums. So I did, or at least I gave it a shot. They were crazy. It was like trying to tame an ant hill.
Kyle was one of those crazy fifth-graders seven years ago. At that time, we were sure that our adventure in California would last two, maybe three years. But here we are, seven years later taking Kyles senior portraits. And we wouldn’t trade it for anywhere else in the world.
We’re rolling out a session package for all those parent’s (or grandparents!) who want to make sure they capture the milestones in their baby’s first year. Contact us before the end of the year and lock in the 2008 price – 6 sessions for $375.
Schedule sessions for:
- 1 month
- 3 months
- 6 months
- 9 months
- 1 year
Or move the sessions around to include a maternity shoot.
Again, we’ll be changing our session prices in January, so book your sessions now!
I was able to borrow a power cord this weekend. I’ll be processing a lot of photos in the coming days. Here’s a sneak peak of Friday’s shoot with Jacob.
I’m back from visiting the folks in Minnesota. I didn’t take too many photos, but I did grab this one of a very sad little girl. Madelyn caught a cold during our week with my parents and was miserable a lot of the time. Poor little Bean.
This has been another project long in the making. We wanted to get some photos of these guys outside of a portrait studio just playing, so we headed out to Ford Park last weekend.
These two have such great personalities. Jacob is incredibly smart, he loves to play, and he’s not afraid to let you know when he wants your attention. Sarah tends to be more subtle. If she wants your attention, she’ll walk up and talk to you, but she’s going to do her thing whether you’re paying attention or not. Sarah has this very cool self-confidence about her.
It was a lot of fun watching these two play in the park with each other.
It’s awesome when Jacob makes Sarah laugh. She has such a great smile.
And Jacob, well, he’s hard to keep up with.
These are two of my favorites of Sarah.
The theme song to Little House on the Prairie plays in my head when I look at this photo.
Jacob was always laughing!
This is the face of a little girl who is done taking photos for the day.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been the Managing Editor of my church newsletter called, The Window. Our May issue was the style issue, and I convinced a friend of mine to model for the issue. The focus of the issue was style – personal style, worship style, relationship style, learning style… you get the picture. So Sheila and I set out to illustrate a handful of different styles in the shoot.
We had a great time. Sheila is an excellent model. She just jumped right in and started posing. She made it so easy. Thanks, Sheila!
We really seemed to find our groove in about the middle of this shoot with the western outfit.
