Backyard Randomness


Just a collection of random shots photographed in my backyard over the spring and summer this year.  🙂  The thing about being a photographer is sometimes the scenes that unfold in front of you sometimes “scream” at you to have your camera at the ready at all times. 

Hope you like them! 🙂 

As always have a great day and stay positive!

Brucemorchestra IV


I arrived about 5:30 to photograph the pre party and even that early with the weather the way it was….”PERFECT”….I KNEW it was going to be a special evening!   The weather was SO much better than last year! 

After photographing the pre party I was riding down the hill and we got a glimpse at the crowd.    45 minutes to go before the music started and the hill between the mansion and the stage was already starting to fill up and that special energy that was present two years ago was BACK!  🙂 

By the time the music started the hill was full with 4000+ ready for an evening of fantastic music under the stars! 

Orchestra Iowa’s season opener at Brucemore is always a great time, last year was cold but the music was still outstanding and had a way of warming you up from the “inside”.  This is my third year of photographing the Brucemore event, and I think the best one yet! 

The music was flawless as always, the energy was “electric”!   As Maestro Timothy Hankewich  put it in his blog, “If the weather is great, then magic happens”. 

During the encore the sight of the cell phones glowing in the audience gives you an idea just how much everyone enjoyed the performance!!! 

A special thank you to Orchestra Iowa for your continued trust in allowing me to photograph your events for 3 years now!  It’s always pleasure to work with your entire staff! 

Also, special thanks to Michael Webber for his help in photographing this event on short notice!

SIDs Walk 2011


I’m a big believer in giving back to the community in any way I can.

This is my fourth year to participate in the Cedar Rapids SIDS “Walk for the Future” All the images in the slide show are from this years walk on Saturday, August 27th. It was emotional and uplifting at the same time.

I got involved with SIDS for two reasons. My neighbor lost their son, Cole to SIDS appx four years ago. When I lived in Texas I had the honor of photographing little Brian. Three days after that photo session Brian passed away from SIDS.

If you can, please give a donation, SIDS is so devastating to the parents that have lost babies. Can you imagine what it would be like, to wake up one morning and find your precious little angel has passed away? http://www.iowasids.org/ Please help if you can!

You can purchase team and candid images on my website at: http://www.visionsphotography.net scroll down to where it says “Click here to view your online photos!” All profits will be donated back to the local SIDs organization.

 

 

As always have a great day and stay positive!
