Little League

Jack and Max were on the Astros together this season.  Jack made AAA All Stars and Max made District All Stars.  Christina and I did not miss any games and we loved watching them play together.

Jack's pitching style is similar to Greg Madux.

Hazelnut Photography

One of my all time favorite wedding photographs was one of Jordana Hazel and her groomsmen.  I used the cool hats the guys were wearing as a silhouette to Jordana in the background.  When I shot her wedding I knew that she was a very creative person.  She is now applying that ability to her own photography.  She has started to shoot weddings and frankly she is kicking butt!  Check out Hazelnut Photography.  Way to go Jordana!

Jordana as the subject in one of my all time favorites!

Max has been asked to play on a “travel” baseball team.  This is a great honor bestowed on only a handful from his entire Little League.  The level of play is much higher, but so is the pressure.  The boys are asked to work a little harder and take everything more seriously.  So far he seems to be having a great time.
