Lollipop, Lollipop, Oh!… Lollipop

This is one adorable little girl and what a perfect model for the Sweet Seconds Children's Consignment  Boutique AD for the upcoming May publication of Eastern Shore Parents Magazine and I know her Mom will forgive us for feeding her all that sugar after she sees the photos from today's shoot.

Baby Mondays: Spring smiles

I just loved photographing those cheeks! Not only that but she has the sunny disposition and biggest smile and the photo shoot went off without a hitch what a great way to start of the spring season.

At Work

Guy Fieri, Myself and Panini Pete, Gulf Shores, Alabama 2011

I rarely if ever post photos of myself but once in a while the camera is pointed in the other direct. This was during the Supper on the Sand Celebration of the Gulf to mark the year anniversary of the BP oil spill and recovery efforts.

Kate Mercer (Reali) ©Press-Register 2011

This photo just puts a big smile on my face the kids look so happy and excited waving their flags as they march as the Baldwin Pops play their music and doesn't they bay just look so beautiful, I love when I have an idea and everything I hope would happen falls into place in a matter of seconds having no prior preparation and that I ran fast enough to the spot and click the shutter just in time to capture something so awesome!
