Now go ahead and press “open post” (right down below these words) kick back, read on and get yourself acquainted with my new space!
So after a couple test posts with some actual events, it’s time to make this thing official and call it a blog already! But, I must say that this blog wouldn’t be what it is, had I not stumbled upon Theresa at blogsforphotogs. Seriously, if you are ever in need of a spiffy, shiny and custom blog or blogsite, Theresa is your girl! She is good stuff and I feel like I hit the jackpot with her. I had been blog-stalking for quite some time, trying to figure out how I wanted my own site to function and look and how to go about coding and custom-designing my own template in WordPress. I randomly came across blogsforphotogs on the bottom of one of the many sites and after reading through her website and her services, I contacted her and it was an instant connection and collaboration. Theresa was able to take my designed mock-up and all my thoughts on how I wanted it to function and made it all come to life. I originally set out to learn how to do all this coding stuff on my own with the help of Lynda.com and WordPress for Dummies, but after re-doing my website and spending many hours re-learning flash and action script, I was more than willing to find someone who could do this coding thing with more ease. I couldn’t be happier with it! I look forward to documenting this journey through my “creative lens” and hope you enjoy looking and reading along with me. Let the blogging fun begin!
It’s just about that time of the year again for getting in gear for Kansas City’s Corporate Challenge. For the past three years, I’ve took it upon myself to design & write an ad campaign to help bring awareness and gain more participation from the Hallmark community. This year I decided to pull some of my fellow teammates to pose for a goofy photo shoot. Here’s what I got…
I joined Lindsay, Donovan and their families at the Fresh Air Barn, where they have decided to tie the knot the first weekend of October. They asked if I wanted to come along to meet everyone and check out the venue that I’ll be photographing at for their big day! I really enjoyed meeting their families and they even all got together to push my car out from being stuck in a snowy, icy driveway that I managed to get stuck on. No big deal. But I must go on about this barn! What a great, beautiful spot to host a fall wedding. It’s got a great set-up for such the occasion and I’m really honored they asked me to capture their big day!
