The Writing on the Wall

On a recent trip to Miami to shoot for my B is for Box series, a dear friend of mine took me to Miami’s Design District as well as the Wynwood Arts District. The neighborhoods are full of some of the most gorgeous street art I have ever seen. One graffiti artist incorporated a large grate on the side of a building into his robot; another used the side of an entire building, blending the characters and trees in with the windows. I even got to see Captain America smoking crack! While I’m sure it happens, each artist is respectful of the next paying close attention as not to cover up or destroy the previous artists work. There were many new pieces popping up for Art Basel and I can’t wait to check them out during all of Basel’s festivities next week! Enjoy!

Show your Support Today for Small Business Saturday!

Small business Saturday is here! Today is a day to celebrate and support small businesses around your community. Last year over one hundred million people shopped small; invigorating and supporting their communities. Book a portrait photo session with me and save $50 off of the normal $200 sitting fee. I’ll also throw in a free 8×10! This is good through Monday, but I’m already almost booked through the holidays, so act fast. Thanks for your continued support!

Eleven years later | September 11, 2001

For my Dad, my hero.

September 11, 2001. A date that changed our country forever.

Everyone has their own memories of what happened on this date – where they were, what they were doing, not being able to reach people on their cell phones, the worry, the tradgedies, etc. – and for many, the pain still hurts today. For me, it was a day we lost our freedom.

This post is in memory of the lives lost on September 11, 2001 and for those still affected.

In early 2010, with the help of many brave men and women, I created a series titled ‘The Forgotten’. There are about 30-40 photos in all, but I just pulled out a few to share with you today. While I’ll never truly know or understand the pain and suffering they carry with them on a daily basis, I can see that many stand on the edge of a begining and an end. Help them move forward. Don’t just think about them today, but every day.

I will never forget.
