I found out yesterday that Samsung of America's photography website chose my photo called SPINNING ABOUT as their top pick of the month for July 2009. Here is the link to the page:
Every month there are close to 30,000 photos submitted to the contest. This is my third time receiving the honor. It has been really exciting getting a hot pick and a top pick in the same week.

I just found out that the editors of www.soaphoto.com (Samsung of America) chose FUN WITH SAND as one of their HOT PICKS OF THE WEEK. I had a chance last week to edit one of my favorite photographs of my son playing in the sand. Someone asked me if he was posed or prompted for this shot, but he was not. When we walked down to the beach he just started throwing sand everywhere.I was amazed when I got home and saw it on the computer, because I had never seen sand captured in that way before.
I also had a little fun with my daughter outside my photo studio here in Warsaw, NC. I used a shoot through umbrella from about 4 feet away to try and overpower the sun that was coming through the trees. I always worry about frying the sensor on my camera, when aiming directly at the sun. Anyway, I just loved the way it turned out. If you are reading this blog, drop me a line. I would love to hear a word from SOMEONE!!!

I've been toying around in the studio this weekend, here in Warsaw, North Carolina. I had to proove to myself that I could do a better job photographing my child than LIFETOUCH did. My wife thinks I did. Max is cheap! He posed for 2 dollars! I also got my daughter in there as well. I want to thank GOD for blessing me with such a wonderful family!

I just finished up coaching a high school girls tennis team. We came in third in the conference and had a great year! The team is made up of mostly sophomores and we are hoping to see great things in the near future. Im going to enjoy a couple of weeks off before middle school basketball begins. Pray for me!! lol
