Not to long ago my wife and I rescued our first puppy – Sam.  Words alone cannot express how much of a blessing this little guy is to our hearts.  Not quite a year old yet and already a whopping 50 pounds, which is funny because he thinks he is a lap dog.

When we’re sick, not feeling well, or simply down – Sam is there with his puppy eyes and let’s us know everything will be alright.  When we’re joyful and ready for anything – Sam is already in the car waiting for a car ride or already outside ready to play.

Sam is truly the prime definition of man’s best friend – he’s our best friend and we would be lost without him.

This post is dedicated to our dog – Sam.

“A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn’t care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he’ll give you his.”

the backyard.

May 20, 2009

Backyards are a part of everyone’s past time whether mud pies, playing with the dog, swing sets, gardening, trimming the grass; regardless every home has a backyard.

I had a few frames left on my film camera and decided to take a stroll through my backyard – nothing fancy, but I am interested in exploring further now.

The backyard is only the beginning.








Film used – Fuji Reala.


This past Saturday (August 23rd) was such a highlight for me this month.  Scott Kelby, the Jedi Knight of Adobe Photoshop, brought forth an idea for amateur and professional photographers from all over the world to gather in a united event.  The whole concept for this event was for all these photographers to basically grab their camera for a couple of hours, meet other photographers at a designated location, walk around that location for two hours, take lots of photos, and just basically have fun.  No rhyme or reason really, other than to meet and greet and have fun.  

Well, I traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia, with a new friend of mine, Joel Coleman, a creative photographer from Liberty University, and I must say we had a blast.  We met one of the nicest and all around cool photographer close to Washington DC, Mr. Rob Jones, owner of Towner Jones Photography.  In fact, Rob was our leader for this “photowalk” location at the University of Virginia.  

I am deeply honored and ecstatic that the following photo won Honorable Mention this past Saturday, in Charlottesville, and is now joined alongside many other Honorable Mention photos from all over the world.



I also wanted to share some more of my favorite images from this past “photowalk” and I am so excited for this event again, coming in December.  I hope you enjoy.  Until next time.  Blessings.




















I know it’s been some time since my last full post, but have no fear I am back with some “rockin” new photos.


I would like to introduce to you, Carl Cartee, Christian singer/song writer extraodianare from Nashville, TN.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with his work, check out his website and you can also iTUNES him, as well.  I love this guy and I truly value our friendship.  Before, I left North Carolina, I offered to take some updated photos of him on stage and a few in the studio, and let me tell you…what a way to say goodbye to Gardner-Webb.  Oh, it was such a blessing for me to take these photos.


Carl, is one of the most awesome and most talented, not to mention most generous and kindest, and most rockin’ worship leaders ever, with a true heart and calling from the Lord.  I also wanted to include his wife, Heather Cartee in this photo set.  Heather’s voice is unmatched and they both compliment each other so well when they sing together.  Both of them have voices for God and they truly rock out for Him!


I hope you enjoy them!  Until next time…blessings!
