Read To Me | Woodstock Documentary Photographer

As Conor gets older we are having a lot more fun with our bedtime reading. He's really starting to get into certain books, and we try to keep it fresh with a new book or two from the library each week. I usually let him pick out 2 or 3 books to read before bed at night. We sometimes spread his favorite blanket on the floor and flip through them, sometimes we sit together in the rocking chair. We don't always get through a whole book before moving on to the next, and sometimes we read the same one over and over. This was the case recently with The Very Busy Spider.

I had stepped out of the room for a moment and when I got back I found him sitting up in the rocking chair by himself, as he does sometimes. He sat there quietly reading for a moment, then moved to the floor to read it again, and again, until I insisted on turning out the lights and welcoming in the sandman, so I could edit these wonderful images! I always know when I get something I love, because I rush straight to my computer to play with it! 



Halloween 2016 | Woodstock Documentary Photographer

Sharing a little something different today. Beyond taking photos for other people, I take a lot of pictures documenting my own life. These are the pictures, the people, and the places, that make my heart sing, and they are the reason I love photography. Although  my client work is a reflection of my own personal style, there's something different about it, can't explain it. So I have decided to dedicate a blog a week to my personal documentary photography. 

This year marked the second Halloween for our little guy! This year was much more excited than last, mostly because he could walk, and he has enough teeth to actually have a piece if candy. Which is all he had one bite, mommy & daddy ate a few pieces, and the rest were recycled into the pillowcases of the late night pre-teen crowd that came for tricks or treats.

We made a whole weekend of it! We went to our churches trunk-or-treat, visited family on Sunday evening, and strolled the cul-de-sac halloween night. His costume was a big hit! He loves Curious George, so we bought the hoodie, his aunt made him the pants/tail and the very popular banana bag!
