Photo by Larry Posted on Creighton Web Site!

I was contacted a few months ago by a Creighton Bluejay basketball information web site. Branson Pirate, Avery Dingman, has signed to play with the Bluejays. I was asked to submit any photos I might have of Avery in action.
I checked their web site today, to see one of my images had been chosen to post on their site!
Their site is:
Below a screen shot of the site, with the photo, taken by me (click on photo to enlarge).

April Wedding

In April, we will be photographing the wedding of Kory and Mark. I have done several photos of Kory over the years. She is actually a somewhat distant cousin. Our great-grandmothers were sisters. I'm not sure, but I think possibly she and my grandmother were named after the same person. Kory's great-grandmother's name was Cordelia (forgive me if I spelled that wrong). I was told, some people called her "Kory". My grandma Shahan's name was "Cora" (actually, both my grandma's names were Cora....Cora Shahan and Cora Plumlee). We also have a grand daughter named Cora!
I always feel honored to be a part of such a special day!
Congratulations, Kory and Mark! I look forward to capturing the special moments of your wedding!

Commercial Photography: St John's Hospital

Being in a small, rural area, I can't really specialize in just one type of photography. But I sort of like that. I get to do a variety of things, so that keeps things interesting.
Occasionally we do commercial photography. "Commercial photography" is generally defined as taking photos that are to be used in ads or promotional purposes.
Over the past year, I've done a few jobs for St John's hospital. Below is a couple of the photos, and the ad layout created by St John's. I've done a lot of photography for both of these families over the years, Mr Schell and the Gordon's.  I was photographing Kristin when she was the age of her kids!

Senior Portrait Road Trip, Day Five: New York City

Our final destination site for the trip was New York City. I'd never been to NYC, never really had a desire to go. But after visiting, would love to go back! Wasn't really what I expected.
This was our longest day of photography. We headed out mid morning and didn't return to our hotel room until sometime before mid night.

 Washington DC....trolley loaded and ready to head to New York City!
 Someone bit into their morning pastry, and it sort of had an odd texture. Turning it over, there was a piece of wax paper on the

Senior Portrait Road Trip, Day Four: Washington D.C.

Day Four was an interesting day. Neither Lajunta or I have ever been to Washington D.C, so this was a day of adventure for all of us.

 Breakfast a Panera Bread.
 Our first stop of the day was Arlington National Cemetery.
