Alvarez/Smith Wedding – October 3, 2008

“The pictures were beautiful. Thank you so much for capturing so many wonderful details. The colors were spectacular. Thanks again and can’t wait to use you again at another proud moment in our lives.”

— Caroline Alvarez Smith, Baton Rouge

Sasha and Kirk are Engaged!

Thanks so much, Sasha and Kirk, for letting me show off your engagement portraits at the Baton Rouge Out of the Box Bridal event last Thursday. They made a great impression! Kirk owns Effeum Tattoo Shop on Government Street here in Baton Rouge. 

Bob’s New Jet…

Well, it’s not exactly my jet, but it is my photograph of the jet created for my newest corporate client, West Cost Charter. This shoot was in sunny Tampa, Florida, so I am truly sorry if it was cold, or worse, icy where you are. Welcome to West Cost Charter, and everybody have a happy new year.

Pig Racing…

It might be difficult to see them with the speed of the pigs, but my kids are in the background on the right. We had a great time watching the superbowl of pig races… Oh yeah, and deciding on a Christmas tree.

“Engagement photos were lots of fun, and from a purely vain perspective, I really liked how you photographed my face. It’s the first time I’ve ever liked my crooked nose!” – Emilie, Chicago, IL
