A Spring in Our Step

Ha Ha Tonka State Park, MO Well, we started off with a spring in our step. Going down the 316 stairs, we figured, was easier than going up and let me tell you right now – it was. The slow ascent back to the top, after walking all day was what wore us out. Oh,…

Lost in Paradise

Bennett Spring State Park, MO Every year we go to Montauk for the family fishing trip. We love Montauk and think it’s a little slice of trout fishing paradise, however, I think we found a close second. Roadtrippin’ our way to Ha Ha Tonka, of course we got lost. We went a little too far,…

Neighbors and Freinds

Mobile Bay

Mobile Bay, AL We got to see some pretty interesting things when we took the ferry across Mobile Bay to Dauphin Island.

Grandchildren are a blessing…

A large family of Parents, Children, and Grandchildren came together for a session straight to the heart of all little ones.

It’s a Dog’s Life…

She wanted photos with their dog, Samsun. He wanted photos by the river. We walked through the fields and woods, Samsun finding some interesting things along the way. Combining the two of them and their wishes with a casual soft and dreamy feel, late afternoon sun flares, and a riot of color makes this one…

Roll with It…

High School Senior Session- St Francis State Park, MO On Sunday morning, we met up with the gorgeous graduate below for her Senior photo session. She showed up, completely casual, at ease, and hard for me to read. I started working, snapping away and I still couldn’t figure her out. I soon learned she was…
