A quick post of a beautiful couple I photographed a couple weeks ago. It turned out to be a pretty nice day but boy was it a warm one! We had planned on doing photos outside at the Capital in Lincoln but it was getting to be unbearable. We went inside to cool off and made use of the long hallways flanked by tall windows that provided *perfect* lighting.
The bride looked so elegant in her pink gown. Even her veil was a light shade of pink.
I’m just finishing up proofing this session. Can’t wait to give the proof book to the family.
I got some great outdoor shots that day.The scenery was so bright and colorful.
And the couple . . . they were so much fun to watch “being in love”.

. . . and Sarah with a Mae needed some “I’ve recently graduated college” pictures. I couldn’t wait to take these photos. Not only is she my best friend’s younger sister and extremely beautiful and fun but, she just graduated with a degree in Graphic Design! Nothing better in my book. This is just one of the many things we have in common. A quirky sense of humor, a passion for art and photography, and an uncanny ability to quote the movie “elf” are just a few others.
Without further ado,
We set off through town tonight looking for fun and different places to “snap some shots”. It sure was hot out but we still had a great time. And oh yes girls, those are old lockers you’re looking at. It was like a locker graveyard. They were on their side, upside down, doors ripped off, etc. I was on a trek to find some unusual backgrounds and I hit the jackpot. I kept joking with Sarah that we’d need tetanus shots by the time we got out of climbing through that jumbled up mess of ripped out lockers.
And my main goal tomorrow is to call and find out if they are, shall we say “available”. I want a locker or two to use as a funky storage piece in my house. Sarah and I used a couple locker door fronts for some other pictures that I didn’t post. I’d love to have them as photo props!

So I’ve decided to separate my photography from my regular blog. *This* will where I’ll post recent sessions, new things I’ve learned, or just photography experiments I’ve conducted on the weekends.
Now, to relate to the title “my dad rocks”. These photos are of a session I did a couple weeks ago as a Father’s day gift. I was trying to think of something different to outfit my adorable subject in when I decided to browse Target.com. That’s where I found this funky little tank that states the great daddy phrase in pink glitter.
I love the interaction between mommy and daughter in these photos. Totally comfortable and fun, just the way it should be . . .
