We finally got our White Christmas weather in northern Indiana... a week or so late! Since it was more of a muddy and gray Christmas here we burned off some cabin fever energy and let the kids get into Christmas PJs for some photos that matched the magical snowy weather outside. (Neither were too picky that it was early January →
Here's a sneak peek at the reception slideshow from Emily and Tomas' beautiful snowy December wedding day!

Perfectly fitting snow day post. (Reports of nearly 2-3 feet of drifting snow in the last 24 hours here in South Bend!) Just before Christmas Katie and Lawrence caught up with me for a sunny and snowy winter engagement session. Turns out the date was the 1-year anniversary of their engagement! In addition to the celebration it was also a perfectly →
We wrapped up December and 2010 with two wintry engagement sessions before Christmas and 2011 arrived. Started the year's finale with Tyler & Dakota on a bitter cold morning downtown. 9:00 am sounds like a good start until Indiana winter decides to blast you with icy wind! We ducked inside nearby buildings between gusts of wind for a mix of →
Today's wedding photography attire will include ... thermal wear. Brr! Stay toasty everybody!
"Johnny 5, now you are hitting the nail right between the eyes." Wow. I caught this video following Zack Arias' blog. For those of you outside the photography world, this week is the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) convention in Vegas. Yes, warm Vegas. Shiny, warm, not Indiana Vegas where rock star photographers show you shiny new books, cameras, software and →
Ok, it was more than positive daydreaming, it was an entire city, state, and region of the country getting tired of the cold. But finally, WE'RE ABOVE ZERO AGAIN! This marks a 33˚ difference from the record-tying -19˚ it was yesterday. Stay toasty. I'm gonna go enjoy some positive temperatures.
I love winter. I don't love subzero temperatures. Just thought I should clarify.
Here's a glimpse at Indiana weather today, in song format. Ig2NtHY2g9k The arctic is no respecter of fashion. Ice, snow, nowhere to go. Be safe out there.
Precaffeinated ramblings for old times' sake. I haven't written a Tuesday Thoughts post since last year, and long ago since November at that. Since Election Day there's been a flurry of things happening etting ready for the wintry holidays Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and post-holiday decompression. For anyone who hasn't seen him in person so far this year, Adrian is walking. He's →
Wedding photographers have it easy, we only have to work one day a week. (ha!) Let's review this one by the numbers: Running on 2 hours of sleep (excitement is contagious) in 20 minutes at 2am I will have been up for 24 hours since those 2 hours of sleep it took 6 hours of car travel and 2 Amp energy drinks, 2 cups of coffee, 1 →
Happy 2nd Anniversary! What an awesome first Christmas these two celebrated back in 2006, the same year as my first newlywed Christmas. This year as it's single-digit temperatures we're looking back on the nearly 50-degree wedding day we shared with Katie and Nathan to think warm thoughts as Christmas nears. (Is global warming on vacation or what?!) Click the photo above of →
It's 2˚ ... TWO DEGREES! When you add to that freezing rain and snow you can walk across but not dent because it's a solid sheet of ice... it's too cold. Two cold* for me... stay toasty! * Note that I understand and enjoy demonstrating the different uses of to, too and two. Saying it's "two cold" is a play on words →
Old news, winter's here in Indiana. For some fuss I couldn't post these pics yesterday but the photo cuteness of Adrian in the snow was too adorable to keep offline and I found a way to share them! Our snow baby all bundled up with Mama, ready for his first play in the snow! Wait a minute, this stuff is on the →
