365 Day 5: The Clan

365 Day 5: The Clan

Late nights make for a late post. Hung out with the entire clan yesterday at the house of Henny. My kids wanted to sleep over with all their cousins so the wifey and I had a nice quiet night alone. I thought about how different it will be when the youngest of all our buggers [...]

2010 Madison Hip Hop Awards

Jamie + Kevin: Olbrich Gardens Wedding

Jamie + Kevin: Olbrich Gardens Wedding

The morning started out cloudy and gloomy, but by the afternoon, the clouds broke and the sky cleared. So what began as a somber start to the day, turned into a beautiful sunny afternoon; perfect weather for an outdoor garden wedding! Olbrich Gardens is a popular venue for weddings on Madison’s East Side. Maybe it’s the lush 16 [...]

three . six . five [30] Shoo Fly Don't Bother Me

I LOVE taking macro shots. Entering the small world with a higher magnification lens is like entering an entirely new universe. When I am at home and I want to take Macro shots I normally don’t need to leave my property to find any subject matter; generally I don’t even have to leave my house [...]

three . six . five [29] Skelly’s Farm

Last night I decided that I would “disconnect” myself for the weekend. This meant no social networking, no Facebook and Twitter, no email. This was incredibly hard to do, considering my iPhone 4 keeps me connected ALL THE TIME. Being the only device I carry around with me it was hard not to answer or [...]

three . six . five [24] Spwite Pwease

Last night I headed over to Buffalo Wild Wings, a popular sports bar around the US. The occasion was three-fold; celebrate the day my wife and I first met, a friends birthday, and to watch Randy Moss in his first game back with the Vikings (what happened last night Brent Favré?). It was a fun night, and I [...]

three . six . five [23] Atraiu's Dilema

My son always makes me laugh. I saw him running around trying to find something, and when he found what he was looking for I saw him pacing back and forth with this BIG dilemma. So I talked to him to ask what the problem was, and as it turns out, he was upset because [...]


three . six . five [22] A Love for Nature

three . six . five [22] A Love for Nature

(This post is a day late) Yesterday, I had an engagement shoot for Marcy and Kevin and they decided to bring along their two daughters Alexia and Arianna to include them in some of the photos. Ill save the details of the engagement shoot for a separate post, but I couldn’t help posting these images [...]


three . six . five [21] Fall Fun!

three . six . five [21] Fall Fun!

I spent the part of the weekend at parents place and hung out with the nephews and kids. We decided to clean up the leaves in my parents yard, it was fun putting everything in a huge pile then messing it up again! (isn’t that why we rake leaves?)  The kids had a great time, [...]


three . six . five [20] Bulletproof: Part II

three . six . five [20] Bulletproof: Part II

Went around Madison doing taking some more shots and footage for my sisters ‘Bulletproof’ project. I still don’t have too many details about this, but so far it seems to be for a vow renewal ceremony she is planning for later in the year.  The theme is “Bulletproof”. My younger brother primarily shot footage, but I was [...]


three . six . five [018] Scawee Face

three . six . five [018] Scawee Face

In the spirit of Haloween, I photoshopped my eldest daughter Camiya into a Samara look-alike. My son Atraiu saw the image and says “I want a ‘scawee’ face too!” I couldnt resist! (Samara is the cutie from the horror movie “The Ring”) This was a little more challenging as my son is to darn cute [...]

three . six . five [016] My Daughter's Gone Goth

My kids will always be my favorite models, they are cute, photogenic and make for great subjects for candid photography. I find myself always using them to try out new techniques or to test out new angles or poses. Naturally, impatience will get the best of them on occasion, but for the most part they are always [...]

three . six . five [015] Bulletproof

I am working with my sister on one of her evil genius plans (projects), this one is called “Bulletproof“. I don’t have a lot of details about the project yet, but I will be sure to update as I get more information. Today we shot at Garver’s Feed Mill, a long abandoned building in Madison, WI. The [...]

three . six . five [011] Family Comes First!

Its about that time for Fall Family Portraits and I promised my wife that I would do portraits of our family first. So we took to the UW-Madison Arboretum in hopes that fall has touched us with its warm tones and colors (not on the South end of the Arboretum at least), however I think we [...]


three . six . five [009 + 010] Shoot for the Moon

three . six . five [009 + 010] Shoot for the Moon

Over the weekend I tried to capture any remnants of the Harvest Moon we had last week. This year though, its not your normal Harvest Moon when we have a full moon around the time of the autumnal equinox- simply, the Harvest Moon is the full Moon closest to that equinox. A Super Harvest Moon, [...]

three . six . five [008] Dreamer

Late post after a not too exciting day. Had an uneventful fishing outing with the kids, hung out at parent’s place with sis from out of town, forgot to tip the chinese food delivery guy. Missed all sorts of photo ops today. I saw a hawk land in a tree very close to the house, so I [...]

Jill + Ashton Engagement

Jill + Ashton Engagement

I’ve known Ashton and Jill for a good while so it was an honor that they asked me to shoot their engagement session.  They are a fun and outgoing couple and it was so comfortable shooting with them.  The weather on the day their shoot was really sunny with a dapple of some clouds here [...]
