Earning Her Rank

The kid has really been applying herself to learning at Infusion Mixed Martial Arts. We're seeing some really nice changes in how she handles herself, both physically, and mentally. Most importantly, even though we encourage her, she still has to do this on her own. We can't earn her belts for her.

Freja prepares to demonstrate Muay Thai punching and kicking during her belt advancement test. Her favorite part? Getting to wear her mouth guard.

It All Comes Together

The sun was low in the sky as the bride finished the "sand ceremony" at the end of their nuptials. This is a totally candid moment, I don't even think she noticed when I slipped to the side of the gazebo. Sometimes, you just have to love it when the natural light plays in your favor.

Some Tough Mudders

It was a real nice change of pace to photograph the local team from Infusion MMA as they ran the Tough Mudder obstacle course.

At Z & Zz

Teri & I had a date week while the kid was at school. With the new school year beginning last week my wife had taken it off from work. It gave us a chance to just spend time alone, just the two of us.

At the corner of Z & Zz we found what appeared to be a store. I friend in our new neighborhood had told me that it was in fact NOT a store. It turns out it's one of more interesting placed one could stumble upon during a sunny weekday before noon. We basically had the place to ourselves, had a really great lunch. Not only was the meal good, but we were having such a great day just being together sans being a parent at the same time. I can't tell you how happy we are school has started.

A Perfect Day

I shot two weddings this past weekend, both were awesome. The second though had an amazing venue, the church designed and attended by Frank Lloyd Wright! It even had a small patch of restored prairie! It was a perfect combination of nice folks, great locations, and really nice light.
