Last night my friend Nichole and I went to the Professional Photographers of America Tour in Chicago, IL.  We seen Allison and Jeff Rodgers and the awesome Gary Fong.  We had a blast.   Here are some pictures from last night…

We went to the wrong hotel… We had no clue there was two Hyatt’s within 1 mile of each other.  (crazy)  At the wrong hotel there was a Coleman Expo going on, so we crashed it….  Here is me trying to look cool….


Here is poor Nichole, this guy was giving her stuff to put on…


Yeah she is wearing waist high wadders and still looks hot…


And here are some shots of the speakers.  (sorry not the best, we sat towards the back)  I shouldn’t even post the one of Jeff and Allison because they look so sad, actually they were just listening to questions from the crowd.

Huge thanks to Nichole for asking me to go with her.  I am so lucky to have awesome photography friends.  I also seen  my friend Cathy Dietz and her hubby there. (they went to wrong hotel too, he he)

And for the record yes we learned stuff while we were there.  I have lots of new ideas and can’t wait to implement them.  Stay tuned folks!

Indiana Photography: Oregon-Davis Basketball

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Last Saturday I went to the 5th and 6th grade OD girls basketball tourney, I had a blast and so did my kids.  I just love basketball!!

The 5th grade team lost in the final game by 2 stinkin’ points.  They just ran out of steam.  (ask Brandon, that is what he told my mom too).  I am so proud of them though.  Although I do have to say the Argos team they were playing was pretty darn good.  The OD 6th grade team dominated big time and claimed their trophy.  Here is the 6th grade tourney champs….

I have a feeling this group of girls will get several chances to raise the trophy up in the air, they are awesome.

EDIT TO ADD:  Pics are now in the storefront.  I do have some pics of some girls on the other teams, I think I grabbed some of Argos and South Central.  If you see someone you know, please let them know.  (Becky G- I am talking to you)

They can be found here…

One last photo of the OD Lady Cats Varsity Basketball team.  I took their picture the other day for the wall.  Was fun to hang out with them.  (sniff, sniff, gonna miss the seniors)


Oh and I have to post this pic of Andrea and Kelsey.  Andrea’s primary goal in life is to get on my blog…

Weston and Millie are super kids.  They did so good job for me despite fighting colds.  Their session was suppose to be last Monday and their mom called because they were sick and their colds just keep on keeping on (Brandon had the same thing awhile back).

Hopefully next time everyone can be healthy and the weather will be warmer so we can venture outside.

Indiana Photographer: Journey

Thursday, March 11th, 2010




Journey wasn’t in the mood for pictures yesterday morning.  She was a stinker.  She is just way to smart.  She didn’t fall for my usual tricks I use to get kids to smile, well I guess she did a few times but unfortunately she had gum in her mouth and kinda’ had a crazy smile.  I told Brooke that Journey is sooo much like Samantha at that age.  Oh how Brooke is gonna have fun times for sure.  Sorry girl wish I could help ya, that’s what happens when you have smarty pants kids.

Oh and I have to share this cute quote from her questions….

What is dancing?  Something daddy doesn’t do.
