Goodwin Girls - The photography books on the right are awesome, but they didn’t cover a bit of the information that J* thru CreativeLive just gave me about the business part of the photography business! Didn’t come close!

tim king - Sarah, this is awesome. I don’t know you at all, but Ashley gave me a little back-story on this blog, and I just wanted to say, “you rock.” I think you totally helped make this the “best birthday yet” for her.

After several bouts of blizzards, I prayed a hundred times that on the particular weekend of January 15th, 2011, God would decide that the kids of Lynchburg Virginia had more than enough snow days and that he would spare the state another winter weather advisory, just long enough for me to drive into town.  That […]
