Grason Steps

On a non work related note, Grason took his first steps today.  We were both sitting in the big room at the studio and he just took off from one sofa towards Kendra.  It helped that Kendra had some pudding.  It was really nice that Kendra and I could both be there for the first steps…. a fun family moment.

Back to editing wedding videos,

We have taken the week off of working on wedding video.  Our time off has brought us out to Fort Davis, Texas.
We have had a blast and can not wait to get back out to West Texas.  Here are a few photos from our trip.

New Wave Photos

Here are a few photos from the session we had with New Wave Photography here in Corpus Christi.  We shoot a lot of wedding video and often we find ourselves out with Rob and Amanda.  They do a great job shooting photos and we decided to trade photos for video work.  They had their daughter, Parker Lilly, a few weeks after we had Grason.  Not only do we enjoy their company, we also enjoy Rob and Amanda’s work.  Below are a few baby portraits that New Wave Photo did for us.

Thanks again to Rob and Amanda at New Wave

Off Weekend

We were setting up to video two big weddings this weekend when we received word they were canceled due to hurricane Ike.  Lucky for us Ike is heading for Houston.  Our Saturday wedding was set for the Corpus Christi Cathedral and the Sunday wedding was to be at Our Lady of Perpetual Help.  Both brides decided to halt there weddings so we took the opportunity to take a road trip.

Wednesday we boarded up the home and studio and headed for the hills.  Literally we came to visit my in-laws “The Hills.”  So along with my wonderful wife, 6 week old Grason & three dogs we managed to make it to San Angelo on Thursday afternoon.  We pulled all the equipment from the studio and I have temporally setup shop here at the Hill’s.

Take care and stay safe

Labor Day

On Labor Day we went over to my great aunts house in Lamar Texas.  We were able to take Grason and show him off.  He was well behaved and we think everyone enjoyed him very much.  We did have to pry him out of his Great Grandfathers hands so we could take him home.
