Giving Thanks


“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” — William Arthur Ward

Update: Congratulations to our $250.00 Portrait Gift Certificate Winner - Lisa Whititngton!

I recently came across my high school yearbook and it instantly provided some laughs for my kids! It also provided me with thoughts of gratitude as next to my name and picture it listed "Career ambition - Professional Photographer "

I am grateful for my wife that has loved and encouraged me during our 29 years of marriage and for our children who are a gift from God.

I thank God for His grace, mercy and unending love.

I am grateful that I have had the joy of owning a small business for 30 years and photographing thousands of people.

It is such a joy to do what I truly love for a living. Thank you for allowing me to capture the special moments in your lives!

In appreciation, I will be giving away a $250.00 Portrait Gift Certificate! Simply click here to share your thoughts (in the "other" section)  and let me know what you are thankful for. A random name will be drawn and the winner will be announced on announced Friday, December 5th.

Thank You Veterans!

Flag Heart

Today is the day we honor,
the noble and the brave,

the men and woman who dedicated their lives,
and the sacrifices that they have made.
When America had an urgent need,
they were the first to raise their hand,
without thinking twice about it,
they were proud to take a stand.
Some came back from war with battle scars,
others in flagged draped coffins,
even though their flesh may have left,
their spirits will never be forgotten.
They unselfishly and knowingly,
put their lives on the line,
so when you see a veteran, thank them,
cause without them, freedom would have died
