Every once in a while I get to spend some time with my beautiful sister Devin and the camera always comes out sooner than later it seems!
There are very few moments so special, so precious as when a child enters the world. For the parents it means a whole new life full of challenges but great rewards. The child is completely innocent and helpless as it enters our world, dependent on its parents for every need. There is a connection between parent and child that a camera cannot capture fully.

I’ve been shooting old school this last week with my Nikon F3HP and Kodak Portra 400 Color Film. It was film that got me into photography in the first place. At first I had a little point and shoot digital camera just like everyone else. Then my wife and I went to help her Grandmother clean up and pack up her house as she was moving out. In an old trunk I found a few old cameras. It was a treasure trove of sorts. Included was a Nikon Nikormat FT3. A great, old, all manual (except the light meter) camera. My Wife’s Grandmother very kindly gave the cameras to me. I quickly got some film and started shooting. Armed with the Nikormat, a Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 and some Walmart 35mm film I began a photo rampage that hasn’t stopped. Since then I’ve got a few more cameras and have created a few more photographs, both digital and film, but my first and true love is a 50mm lens and 35mm film.
Be on the lookout for new stuff coming soon.
How do you sum up so much childhood energy into one photo session? Well you can’t, but you can sure try! And here’s what you get. The beautiful park we walked through complimented the beautiful family I was with. There are few things that aid the imagination of a child like the beauty of nature. Thanks for a memorable walk through the park.
