1st day of vacation!

Started my vacation on December 17th and headed out to take some photos. Kelly was at work and the kids were still in school so I headed over to Lake Howard for an hour or 2. And the next day headed over to the Circle B in Lakeland in the early morning. Both days were awesome with over cast skies. I got a bit of rain on the 18th at Circle B, but only when I arrived and then again, when I decided to leave. Here are a few of the images...shot with the 100-400L lens.

More Family photos!

It's getting pretty busy trying to balance work with passion. I fortunately work with some great people in the ole' day job and we've been trying to get together to do some family portraits for a while now. Well, over the past week I was able to photograph 3 families and we had a great time doing it. We went to Lake Parker Park in North Lakeland and the weather has been just awesome for these shoots. I hope to be able to get a few more sessions over there while the humidity is low and the temps stay out the triple digits. Here are a few of our shots together.

Amazing Bridal shoot!

Well, Lindsey is getting married in mid November and we were able to get together to take some Bridal photographs. I have the say, the home we shot these images at, in Plant City was every bit as beautiful as Lindsey. It made for a great combination. We started shooting about 7pm and headed outside while we have some great light. Unfortunately we had some great humidity and the heat chased us inside. But not to worry, inside worked our just great and here are just a few of the images we made. Hope you enjoy...

It's official! Calvary Kids Preschool has the cutest kids!

Well, it's official! The kids at the Calvary Kids preschool in Winter Haven certainly have the cutest kinds in the world. I had the pleasure of photographing these cute girls and boys this past Friday and had a blast. The staff and children were so much fun to work with.

We took the photographs outside to get candid shots and headed to the playground. I must have heard about 100 times..."Mr. Andy push ME on the swing now!" It was so much fun and I sure hope the parents like the images.

And also had the chance to meet the rest of the children and they are all just great kids and not camera shy at all. These are just a few of the images we took.

Staci & Seth

I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding this past Saturday for Staci & Seth. Seth is in the Army and the wedding was originaly planned for next year. As his military plans changed the wedding date was moved up...way up. Both families were a pleasure to work with and Staci and Seth were a beautiful couple and just great to photograph. We were able to squeeze in an engagement session just before the rehearsal the day before the wedding. Staci's backyard just the perfect outdoor setting for this. Here are a few of our images.

More North Carolina shots

These were some photo's shot on our vacation in the NC mountains. We made a little trip to the beautiful town of Highlands and I had to take some shots there. Even though my wife hates to have her picture taken, she was a trooper this time and let me take a few...Isn't she beautiful!!!

I love this one of Rachel, she is so photogenic and is always there for me when I get that photo urge.

And Anna's beauty speaks for itself. She is one of the prettiest girls ever! I'm not even biased!

Here were some more shots from our North Carolina vacation. The waterfall is Dry Falls near Cashiers, NC.
