This past summer I had to take some shots in my Dad’s workshop in his barn. It used to house beef cows and I have many memories of sticky/sandpapery loooong tongues and calves that would “inhale” their milk. Well, it sure looks and smells much different now! For many years my Dad did the fine jewelry engraving and bigger things in the house. Yes! He can actually write your name INSIDE a ring…in CURSIVE! He is a very talented man with a preference for perfection. He likes to do the job right, the first time. Next time I visit I will make sure I photograph some of his work. Woodworking, clay modeling, plaster modeling, engraving…you name it. Here are some shots from his workshop. This type of photography is probably some of my favorite kind of work. Hopefully I can find a client that has a need for something like this. : )

Some examples of my Dad’s amazing talent.

…is what we wish for you this Holiday Season.

I put together a beautiful Christmas card for Kenny with her words. On the front is a shot of her daughter that just looked, well, heavenly. After putting the card together she also asked me to make an 8×10 of the same shot, but to make it different, just for Libby. Here are some of my ideas. 

The idea for the butterfly illustrations were taken from the actual designs on the bottom of Libby’s dress.

Here again, details from her dress.


Here is the Christmas card. A 7×5 folded, printet on watercolor paper.

Thanks for letting me photograph your beautiful family! My treat, for sure!  : )
