Yes, I have an Apple Watch. For those of you who know me, I’m sure you saw this coming. However, I didn’t just jump on the bandwagon because I’m an Apple fanatic. Apple products make up a large part of my work/home life because they integrate with each other so well and they just work. I've been using Apple stuff since college and for me, there was value in owning an Apple Watch, even in the product’s infancy. I bought it knowing that it wouldn’t be perfect, that there would be improvements as time goes on and that the overall usability would take some getting used to. But the fact of the matter is that in spite of its newborn limitations, the Apple Watch is off to a great start and I love it. There’s been quite a few in-depth reviews of the watch thus far so I’m going to keep this one short, sweet and visual. I'll touch on a few reasons why I bought the watch and summarize how it’s integrated into my life thus far. If you have any questions, please feel free to email. Enjoy.
Our automatic email responders have been set but we've received a few messages via Facebook and Text message (to which there are no automatic responders) so I wanted to address those here. We are out of town this week for my daughter's surgery and I will be taking a break from responding to most email, voicemail and social media messages and posts. Instead, I will be focusing on attending to my daughter for her surgery and recovery while also taking care of my wife my son.
And to those of you who know about our situation and have responded so warmly, thank you again for all the thoughtful and heartfelt responses of love, prayer, and support. We truly appreciate it.
Our collaborations with Red Barn Studio, Murdog Creative and 6th & Burnside continue. This week, we had the privilege of hanging out with local indy band, Brother Moses. This was our first full band live session so all had to wear earplugs. Here's some behind-the-scenes images as well as the final video. As always, thanks to Jason Miller for hosting and to Murray Williams for coordinating, directing and producing. Enjoy!
It was a great honor to begin the 2015 wedding season by celebrating with and photographing two very good friends as they began their new life together. Aaron and Brook are two of the kindest people you'll ever meet. Their love for each other and the people around them is obvious and inspiring. Their beautiful Spring wedding took place at an amazing new wedding venue in the area called Rockford Grange. What this venue lacks in cell phone reception, it more than makes up for in thoughtful details, beautiful scenery and friendly staff. Besides, it's my personal opinion that people should shut their phones off and just enjoy the celebration anyway :) Here's a few images from the day. Congratulations you two!
