Sandra

Thank you Colombia S.A. for sharing Sandra with us here in Raleigh.  She is naturally beautiful and a pleasure to shoot with.  With very little preparation as we snuck this session in during lunch break.

Amber and Christian Family Photo Session

Amber and Christian have a beautiful family.  We spent the sunset hours getting their Christmas photos done.

Halloween !!!

Halloween is such a blast.  I love seeing all the creative costumes that people come up with.  Here are a some of my most favorite kids, representing Disney this year.

 

Remembering 9/11 at RDU

I think we all remember where we were the morning of 9-11-01.  For me, I was in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport working for United Airlines as an aircraft electrician just getting off of work.

Today, I’m still in an airport…still remembering.

Each year our local TSA pauses on this morning for a moment of silence.  Today marks the 15th anniversary, and were joined by members representing each of our armed services, RDU Fire Rescue, Law Enforcement, and The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association.

Photo credit to Luis Funk so I could take video. Thank you Luis.  Images are unedited as we just returned from the ceremony.

An honor beyond words

For the last couple years I have had the random opportunity to be a back-up photographer, and a second shooter for Sue Perry with the USO of North Carolina located at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

The tasks usually involve recording the various events and services that the USO provides for our traveling members of the Armed Services.

One of the more challenging tasks that has always been difficult for us to accomplish is the capturing of memories for the family members of our fallen soldiers.

The USO has always done a remarkable job with preserving the dignity and respect of our fallen as they make their journeys through RDU and home to their families.

Sue has volunteered her time for years capturing these heroic events so the surviving family members (most who could not be present) could witness this show of respect.

Recently Sue and her family have moved out of the Raleigh area, leaving some rather important shoes to fill.

So OFF with the slippers, and ON with the shoes.

The honor to participate in these ceremonies goes beyond words …and I am forever hopeful for the day when we no longer need to.
