Hope everyone had a great christmas ...

This little note was written by our 8 year old last night. He still believes and it was so sweet to read this after we finished our Santa duties. Today they spent the day playing their new Wii and I cooked all day for a Christmas dinner we had here with my family. It was a wonderful day and we thank God for all our blessings!

Just Cured .... Delicious Salmon!

As much as I love photographing people and the special times in their lives, I also enjoy doing commercial work. This year I got to do two sessions for Just Cured and its principal, Michael Brown.

Just Cured is an Over the Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati company that makes smoked and cured salmon. Michael hand produces these salmon products using the finest ingredients and the most traditional of techniques. Just Cured first released its smoked and cured salmon in late 2008.

I was thrilled with the photos I took -- as was Michael. These sessions took place at Michael's home. Unfortunately, it was raining the day of the second session, so those photos were taken under cover.

Trust me when I tell you that the stuff tastes every bit as good as it looks. One of the benefits of doing food photography is being able to eat the subjects at the end of the session!

In the Dayton area, Just Cured salmon is available at all Dorothy Lane Market locations, and in Cincinnati at several retail outlets including select Kroger stores. To learn more about Just Cured visit http:/

some baked goods michael whipped up ... just delicious!

Part II Sarah + Casey ::

These two have been so patient. I made a slideshow for them so click here if you want to see more! I drove to Bloomington for their engagement session on a beautiful fall day. The color was unbelievable. I can't wait for their winter wedding ... hope it snows!

I love Sarah's beautiful blue eyes ...

And this moment is so sweet ...

Thanks for the beer :)
