Sonoran Sky

Riley will start first grade at Sonoran Sky in August. We went to the school carnival - a fundraiser - a couple of weeks ago. The goal was to let him experience something fun at the school before his first day there.

What a great experience! Riley could have stayed there all day. He loved all of the bounce houses, the art stations, the lego table, and the science exhibit. It was a hot day, and this is what happened in the car on the way home from Gram's.

Way Cool!

I haven't seen anything this cool in a long time. Riley's permanent teeth show up on his x-rays!

As soon as they put these up, Riley started analyzing the images. He noticed right away that there were some permanent teeth that didn't have baby teeth to go with them. His molars even show up.

Based on the dates on the stickers, it looks like the permanent teeth have shown up for a while. The doctor said to expect the baby teeth to start falling out in about six months.

My baby is growing up. Here is scientific proof.

Merit Award

The Arizona Professional Photographers Association held a print competition recently. I entered mainly to get feedback on my prints. I really didn't expect to win anything in my first competition, but one of my prints won a Merit Award.

Here is the winning entry.

Here's another one that the judges liked, but that didn't score quite high enough for a merit.

Sara is Graduating

My niece Sara is graduating this year. We took her Senior Portraits at the Mesa Arts Center. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.

Congratulations Sara! Have fun at ASU next year.

Another First

It's been a while since I've blogged. The good news is that it is because I have been extremely busy since I booked my first wedding job. The wedding was on Valentine's Day. I recently previewed the images with the bride, so I can now share some of the images with you.

Congratulations Dan & Stacia!
