Another Beantown Championship!

Melanie got to witness yet another Boston team winning a championship. Her 6th in her lifetime. Yesterday we had an appointment in Boston so we decided hey while we are here - let's go to a parade.

I got t-shirts for the girls and we watched as the players and coaches celebrated the 17th NBA championship for the Celtics.

We Beat LA!

School Event Season - Done!

Whew! What a spring! Our school/sports division finishes today with a small graduation in Marblehead. During the last 8 weeks my team photographed 5 sports leagues, 10 proms, 1 preschool, and 12 graduations from Manchester, CT to right here on Cape Cod.

The difference this year is that I tried to do my own weddings and portraits while my photographers handled the other assignments. My good friend Chris Odom seen in the background laughing at me came up from Florida to help run some of the teams in the field. Chris wanted out of the Miami sun for a few days - who was I to say no. Thanks Chris!

40! Oh-Boy!

So with an off weekend for a change I was looking forward to getting some much needed rest and sleep. It was my birthday this past weekend and I was turning 40 but was not expecting any big celebrations just some quiet time with Kelli, the kids and my parents.

So on Saturday we had plans to go to lunch with my parents after I had a meeting at the studio. When I showed up at BBC my parents were sitting in the bar area - I was thinking that was a bit odd - why were they not at a table? Then I saw my buddy and old roommate from UCF Kenny then Jay and then big Dave (another old roommate who now lives in VT). I stopped cold in my tracks and said "hey what is going on here?" My friend Jay asked if I bought "my backup liver - you're going to need it" So much for the relaxing weekend with family.

Seems Kelli had been planning something behind my back. When I got back to my house that afternoon there where more surprises including a surprise party with more family and friends including many photographers from here on the cape and beyond. Needless to say I was a bit overwhelmed and embarrassed by all of this but it was a lot of fun.

Mother's Day

On Sunday we hopped back on the boat and headed back to the "main land." Kylie had a ballet performance at CCCC that Kelli and I were anxious to get back for. It was a great show - Peter Pan - one of my favorites! When I get a chance I'll try to post a slide show of some other images from this show but here are a few of Kylie. Who of course was the star of the show - well at least for us :-).

Prom Time on the Vineyard

As many of you know prom season is upon us. My business does several of these this time of year mostly on the cape and few here and there. Last week I got a call from my friend Joe Mikos (a fabulous wedding photographer) on the Vineyard. Apparently Martha's Vineyard HS was in need of a photographer for their prom that weekend. Fortunately I still had some availability in our crazy schedule to add them.

So I convinced Kelli to hop on the boat with me and away we went. The prom was held at the Beach Plum Inn on the island. With a fantastic view of sunset about 100 couples danced the night away with one of my favorite bands - the Sultans of Swing. Some of the band came over and had their pictures taken as well.

Go for it Jenny!

Jenny Barringer will be going to the Olympic Trials the end of next month in Oregon. Jenny was coached in middle school by my best friend and former teammate Ken Rohr in Florida before going on to become one of the best high school runners in the state of Florida under my other teammate & friend from UCF, Jay Getty.

Jenny was one who inspired me to get back into running after a long lay off when I saw her run in the Reebok indoor games in 05 when she was a HS senior.

She continues with great success in her collegiate career at the University of Colorado winning the NCAA steeplechase as a freshman. Below is a video of her career as a Buffalo.

Good Luck Jenny!

Go Jenny!!

Networking Event

Couple of weeks ago Kelli and I got to check out the cool new digs for Southern New England Weddings in Bristol, RI. It was great catching up with some other wedding vendors before the start of our busy season.
While we were there we caught up with Karen Rood of Wychmere Harbor. They just finished with several renovations there. I'm excited to see their new facility when we travel there for a wedding later this summer.
Before we left we grabbed a few bags of cake truffles from Lisa of Delicious Desserts......yummy!
