Hat project starts






I have been wanting to photograph babies in hats so we started this project with Calvin! He is so cute and was such a delight in the studio. He let us put several hats on him while he played with the fire truck. We will be photographing tons of kids in hats over the next several months so stay tuned!

Experimenting with ring flash






We purchased a new ring flash and decided to test it out at my daughter's dance studio. We used one of my girls and her teacher, Nicki as models and we had some fun. Nicki owns Dance House Productions in Biddeford and recently had a graffiti mural made for her studio. I think it makes a cool backdrop and the artist is very talented, Tim Clotis is his name. Nicki is not only a beautiful girl she is an amazing dance teacher. My two daughters have had her as a teacher for the last 4 years and we absolutely love her. If you know of anyone who wants to take dance you should call Dance House Productions!

Model Photo Shoot in Tampa











This is Michele and she is a model based in the Tampa, Florida area. She was a lot of fun to work with and I have used some of the Boutwell Studio's Totally Rad Actions to enhance the images. I had a blast photographing her and working with some other talented photographers I met in Tampa. Here are a few favorites.

Back from Florida





WOW! I have just returned from 10 days in sunny Florida. While there I attended the Digital Wedding Forum's annual convention as well as the Professional Photographer's of America's Imaging USA. After the two conferences ended I headed over to my folks for some R and R and I was able to photograph a professional surfing competition, a portrait session and a golf tournament. I learned so much at the conventions and will be posting more about that later with some photos from a model shoot I sis while there. Here I want to post a few pics of the surfing comp. It was the Oneill Sebastian Inlet Pro surfing contest. Patrick Gudauskas was the winner and took home $110,000. I have a few photos of him here as well as his competitor, CJ Hobgood. Sebastian Inlet is one of my favorite beaches in the United States and it was an 80 degree perfect sunny day. More photos from Florida later.

New Year's Eve wedding







We were so pleased to photograph Peter and Jodi's New Year's ceremony last night. It was a very nice intimate evening and we felt so lucky to be there to share in their wedding. Jody's parents were on hand to be their witnesses and I love this photo of them. Here are a few nice shots including a beautiful exterior of the White Barn Inn, which looks so nice with the recent snow fall.
