The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.
e. e. cummings

It's been an enormously busy year.  Love having my own studio. Love that I'm paid for my work and that I make my living off it.  Sad that I don't get to spend much time photographing nature, though.  Just lots and lots of weddings, babies, high school seniors and family portraits.  I'm a month behind in getting people their pictures.  And being the only employee in my small business, that's the way the ball bounces for now.  My butt gets sore from all the time I spend editing.  I no longer have a butt... it flattened completely out.  I'm totally thankful for my job, though.  I'm my own boss.  What succeeds and fails in my little business is on my shoulders.  The success feels sooooo good.  The fails... uffda! Yet, I survive.  Onward and upward.

Hello there! Just stopped by to say that you have some awesome photography man, everything here is really well done. :) I was just wondering - would it be alright for me to paint your photo of Jagar, as long as I credit you? That picture is absolutely stunning and I just wanted to check with you if it's alright for me to paint it. :) Thanks, and keep it up!

Figured I'd post something here since I'm finding myself commenting on a lot of your works. You've certainly earned yourself a watch from me.

Keep up the awesome work.
