365 Project #5

December 15, 2018


Today’s picture is what it is because I love Apple. They replaced the display on my 2015 MacBook Pro today for free because the anti-reflective coating was coming off and it looked bad. I am super-excited. It is like I have a new computer.

I need a project and I am taking the path of least resistance to a 365 project. Hopefully I will see it through. I will start with items around the house.


On Closing My Photography Business

December 5, 2018


Today is the last day of my photography business. I wrapped up the last business this morning and have already begun steps to dissolve the whole thing. I stopped taking new jobs weeks ago but I had one last wedding this past weekend to shoot and those photos went out this morning.

It is with a full heart that I have closed this chapter of life. I have photographed 14 weddings in the past year and a half. I photographed one proposal, and many family sessions, several engagement sessions. It was a privilege to participate in those families’ memories. I realized that dream of being a wedding photographer. And if I truly believe what more than one bride told me about it, I was pretty good at it.

I wanted to be a professional photographer to lend legitimacy to my endeavors with my camera. It was never about the money.

What I have learned is that I have legitimacy with my camera as an amateur, taking pictures of my boys. There’s a lot that’s right about documenting my family’s journey.

There’s also a lot that’s right about accepting my own limitations and the reality is, I have tangible limits that are incompatible with an occupation that requires so many late nights and off-routine hours.

I hope to start a new series of personal projects in my fresh retirement. First up is documenting my house.
