I'm grateful for how well 2012 went - right to the very end, and slightly beyond by photographing the annual masquerade ball at Union Station. Thanks for that to Danielle Beck, who organizes this event.
Otherwise, I'm pleased with some of the progress I made last year. I started shooting wirelessly. That means my pictures drop right into a computer folder without having to connect a wire from my camera, and without having to keep handing camera cards to an assistant.
I also bought a new printer and sends out pictures lickety split.
Another highlight was being photographer at two first time Santa events: The Greentown Lions at the Howard County Fairgrounds, and Harley Davidson of Kokomo.
I'm excited to see what 2013 brings.

I really enjoyed my wedding photography yesterday with Mike and Lindsey. They were so easy to "shoot", as were all the other people there - very cooperative folks. The day was too sunny to do a lot of pictures outside, so we did a lot inside. Since everyone was so flexible, the pictures inside turned out very nicely.
I really like this picture of Lindsey because she's letting go fully. The surroundings - women's rest room - aren't terribly glamourous, but I think her expression overwhelms them.
Even though there's a lot of work to do on a wedding day and thereafter, I love doing them, especially when the couple makes it this easy!

Busy times at Spectrum. Yesterday, I did a two-part photo session at the kid care place known as Kids at the Top. It's a nice place: clean, organized and the people are friendly. I liked how Tonka, the co-owner tried to help me with business referrals. The kids were cute and cooperative.
Today, I have a couple of pet photo sessions.
Tomorrow, it's a wedding.
On Sunday, it's my youngest son's birthday party - four years old!
It seems that once September comes, the year feels almost over. All the events in this month and through the end of 2012 seem to make a whooshing sound because they streak by so fast.
One other thing that might add to this is the photography I'll do in December at the Greentown Lions Club round barn: pictures with Santa through Christmas Eve.

I'm looking forward to the engagement session I'm doing tonight for Mike and Lindsey. They must be hearty souls because we're doing it outside, as planned, despite a temperature that will be about 95 by the time this comes around.
I'll post some pictures tomorrow.

Photographers don't provide the most essential service in the world, but their service often captures the most essential moments in life. An example was today's portrait session I did for the Briscoes at the Kokomo Country Club.
The occasion was the 80th birthday celebration of Jim Briscoe, which was attended by everyone in the family, including the surprise appearance by grandson Ryan - all the way from seminary school.
Deepening the importance is the fact that Jim is dealing with some health issues. We never really know when the last get-together will be - high school, college, a family barbeque... - but we all know that the combination of age and health challenges can narrow our opportunities. I'm so grateful that Jan Briscoe saw big picture and allowed me to take the family picture.
Whatever tomorrow brings, the Briscoes will have today forever.

I just came to agreement to photograph the South Bend campus of Purdue University next May. It came as a result of photographing the Kokomo campus of Purdue, and people like Kaleigh, a 2012 graduate.

I'm getting ready to stroll through The Children's Garden - a great Montessori school in Kokomo. It's spring picture day.
