Golden sunshine blessed us with great light on the afternoon of this dear couple’s anniversary photo session! These are just a handful of the captures for their anniversary book. I can’t wait to see which one they chose for their canvas wall art! I couldn’t have asked for more natural subjects! They are a great example of love and commitment for all who know them and witness their kindness and service to others.

Whether you’re a business professional, a CEO, a college grad, a student/entrepreneur, a child model, a singer/dancer, or a stay-at-home-parent re-entering the work force, you need a great head shot for your business cards and your website!
Does your headshot communicate professionalism? your joy in living? your passion for a career or hobby? If someone sees your headshot, will he or she take you seriously?
These are just a sampling of headshots in my portfolio — you’ll see a variety of ages and styles and messages that these want to convey to others!
Be sure to contact me if you need a new headshot!

The worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work.
Sunset fishing at Lake Taneycomo in southern Missouri. He got his line wet, the fish weren’t biting, but he went to sleep relaxed.
It’s all about the bait. And being patient.

“A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work!”
These two with their O’Pa at a favorite pond are simply happy to be casting and reeling and catching little biters.

Today is All Saints’ Day on the Christian church calendar. It’s a day to celebrate those sinner-saints who have gone before us to their heavenly rest.
During this beautiful Autumn season I’ve spent some time walking and photographing in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, St Louis, MO, not far from where we live.
When my parents moved from Ohio to the St Louis area in early 2015, they changed their plans so that this national cemetery would be their final resting place.
Our dad is now at perfect peace and has been committed to JBNC since his recent passing from this earth. It’s a sad/happy time for us. Sad because we miss him so much–almost daily visiting, laughing, eating ice cream together, singing and listening to polka music, hearing his great stories about family and World War II and travel experiences and more.
We’re happy and comforted to know that we’ll see him in heaven someday, because we believe Jesus’ promise that’s written in John 11:25-26: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”
God blessed Dad with almost 95 years of life on this earth, with a beautiful and loving bride of 70 years plus, and with a caring family and many friends. For all this, we’re so thankful.
See you later, Dad.
“In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song.”
“For every sin on Him was laid; here in the death of Christ I live!”

She isn’t your typical “water dog” but does she ever have fun jumping off the kayak’s bow into the lake, and then shaking all over one of us!
There must be a tiny Labrador gene in her somewhere!
When we rescued her, little did we know we’d have an avid kayaker joining our family.
