Conglomeration

Lots of Emma, lots of nature, lots of friends and family – here are my personal favorites, but the rest are here, here, here, and here.

Once Upon a Time in Charlotte…

For whatever reason, we decided to take a short family vacation to Charlotte (before they started being total jerks). We got a house on the lake, we went boating, we went to a children’s museum, and we visited a drive-thru zoo. It was a nice, relaxing way to spend a few days.  Here are my (way too many) favorite shots, but all of them can be found here.

2015 Mishmash

Prepare yourself – this post will be chock-full of a total mishmash of 2015 photos. Frankly, I don’t have the patience to go back and post things in order and a little at a time anymore. I wanna get to recent stuff, darn it! So, here are enough events and photos to blow your face off – in no particular order.

Liberty Tower (all found here)

Once in a great while, photographers get the unique opportunity to shoot somewhere that cameras normally are not allowed. This is one of those times: Liberty Tower, located in downtown Dayton, has been around since the 30’s and is a very architecturally unique building in the Art Deco style.

Mackinac Island (all found here)

Keith and I managed to escape, child-free, for a trip to Mackinac Island. It was glorious. We relaxed, we biked, we walked, and we generally enjoyed time away from being responsible.

A family affair (here, here, here, here, and here)

The End of 2015. Thanks, and come again. 🙂

Halloween and L’ville Mega Cavern!

I’m not feeling particularly pithy or creative this evening, so I have little to relay in the way of funny stories or anecdotes – simply put, these are some photos from Halloween of 2014 and then a visit down to Louisville, to visit a winery and then the Louisville Mega Cavern. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed being part of them!

A few from Halloween below – the rest here :
