Life: Jadon

I’ve been posting a few more “Life” posts this time of the year. One big reason: I have more of a life right now. Don’t get me wrong… I love shooting weddings, engagement sessions, babies, and families. I also really enjoy just taking a rest. It’s been a crazy good 2010, and starting 2011 off more slowly is a great way for me to kickstart my creative juices. Although I haven’t ever really been into New Years Resolutions, one thing I have resolved to do better this year is to better take care of my family. Because I enjoy my photography business so much, it’s easy to let business and work creep into my family time. Well… 2011 is a change for the better, hopefully. How am I doing it? Hannah (my wife) and I have talked a lot about how to set expectations, which includes designated work times, designated family times, and even scheduled date nights for the two of us. The bottom line – I think my personal, family life, and my photography “life” will be much more balanced and less stressful.  With all of that said, please enjoy a few pictures from the past few dates of “life” for me:

The next couple of images were captured just seconds apart, as Eoghan (our dog) discovers what it’s like to have a snow ball smashed in his face!

Yes, this is a green fire truck. Jadon specifically requested this color for his belated birthday party. All kudos should go to Hannah for this awesome idea! Jadon even called it “Fantastic!”

This morning – Jadon playing with one of the simplest toys out there: a classic metal slinky!
