Amore’ Couple Sessions


We found a way to take our couple sessions to the next level.  🙂

The verbiage below and concept for these sessions are directly from a fellow photographer named Jesh De Rox http://www.jeshderox.com/  Thank you so much for the inspiration Jesh!  🙂  

The photography is mine!  🙂 

While the beginning of a journey together certainly deserves celebration, as your journey with each other continues, each additional step is an achievement worth celebrating just as much, if not more.

Because of the way our minds work, the clarity we have about the importance of the ones we love can become muddy over time.  Though always within our reach, responsibilities, and misunderstandings can stack up between us.  Our ability to recognize what is precious is often set aside.

If a social ritual could be established in which couples are regularly invited to experience what is most precious in each other, the ripple effect of that clarity could shift the world.  This is the dream of Amore’ Couple Sessions.

Amore’ is not just a photo session, it’s a celebration of the love between you!  It’s designed with fun little exercises.  These exercises are designed to bring the two of you closer and rekindle that fire you shared when you first started dating.  This will in turn create some awesome moments to capture.

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

Johnson County Relay for Life – June 24, 2011


What a beautiful night for Relay it was!  

If it involves fighting cancer you can bet I will be there!  Cancer has taken my father, two great friends, and two furry family members from me.  

I hope you enjoy the slide show and that it makes you want to help with the battle against cancer!   Please give what you can! 

After the slide show scroll down and see some of my favorite images from the walk and as always let me know what you think. 

A special thanks to Stubby Webb for all her help on this one!  🙂

The Great “Bald” Cardinal


I was sitting out in the backyard doing paperwork, ok laptop work, 🙂 and this guy landed at the feeder.  I was like, looks like a Cardinal but that isn’t a Cardinal head!?!?!?   Ok I got to get a picture, went to get my camera and of course he was gone. 

So over the next few days every time I went out in the backyard I brought my camera with me and finally got this shot of him.  Now if you can imagine this, I’m sitting out at the patio table with the umbrella up, it’s raining out, talking on the cell phone to a friend and there he is!  So balancing the cell phone in my ear, with the camera up to my eye, snap, got him!  LoL

  

After doing a little google research, I found it’s the bald cardinal sometimes called “pinhead” or “mini red vulture”.   LoL….Gotta love Google! 

Cardinals can go bald for a couple of reasons. This time of year the birds are molting so before the new feathers grow in the old feathers fall out and for some reason cardinals will sometimes lose all the feathers on their head. The skin is black and without the fluffy feathers, their head looks teeny tiny especially with the massive bill.

Sometimes birds will get feather mites and all their feathers will get eaten away by the mites and the birds are bald until they grow in new ones. However, if you are seeing bald cardinals this time of year, it’s a safe bet that they are molting.   

Since “Dude”, (yea I named him, LoL) has started visiting my backyard, he has given me inspiration.  I’ve noticed  he and his “better half” have a nest in the yard.  After realizing this another thought hit me.   If  “Dude” was human, probably no one would date him because he is different.  If “Dude” was human and in high school, he would be picked on and bullied for being “different.”   If “Dude” was human and walking down the street people would stop and stare because he is “different.”

What does that say to us about the way humans act sometimes?  Nature doesn’t care if one of her creations is a little different, why does it bother some of us humans?

I say embrace those differences, make those differences your strengths!  “Dude” does and through it he gave a little inspiration to this human!  🙂

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!
