I get to practice something I haven’t done in years. Child and family photography. I’m going to have to do some research and study on how to do this well for my children. Now that my daughter has started the family expansion plan, I’m chomping to get her some images she will love for a lifetime. Especially when she is grown.

From the time children are first being held in your arms till they are packing the car to go to college is a blink of an eye. I thought I did an OK job along the way appreciating it, but I could have done better. It goes so fast, you’re so busy and tired that sometimes you forget to be thankful for that day. Especially the tough ones.

I need the Eastern Shore soon.

So I’m going to try to help my kids document their children’s lives along the way. Because along my journey I realize should have shot a lot more images of them when they were young. But your too busy living the moments at times. That’s where I hope to fill in the gaps.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I used to enjoy driving in this area. Now the only hours its fun is between 3 and 5am.

I see so few companies giving that personal customer service that used to be standard.

Spending the last few days at Howard County General, I’ve noticed how pleasant it is there. You’re in the general public but all of a sudden people are exchanging greetings and holding doors and asking how people are and all sorts of things that used to happen outside hospitals.

There all of a sudden is a new normal. There all of a sudden is new concerns and worries. There all of a sudden before us, is a wonderful reward.

How can you not love College Basketball?

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
