Today I say a bittersweet goodbye to my little girl. It’s a day I’ve been looking forward to with excitement for her and a day I’ve been dreading all at the same time. As she heads off to college, this marks a major milestone in all our lives. The end of one big chapter and the start of another.
I’ve been going through my archives a bit lately and wanted to share some images I haven’t yet posted. REO Speedwagon was out on the road with Ted Nugent (click to see photos) and Styx (click to see photos) on the Midwest Rock ‘N Roll Express Tour. I had the opportunity to shoot all 3 bands when they stopped by the Huntington Center in Toledo, OH.
Not long ago I had the opportunity to shoot some artist promotional photos for Blake Whiteley. He was in need of some images to support a new album he was working on with my good friend Jake Rye. Our objective was capture images for the album cover and packaging along with additional artist promotional photos to be used for social media and other marketing materials.
I have known the Kanable family for years and I’m proud to call them friends. Years ago, we used to be neighbors and our families spent more time hanging out at their pool than I can remember. Good memories indeed. I was fortunate to shoot senior portraits for Corey’s older brother and sister so I was honored when she recently asked me to shoot hers as well.
I recently had the opportunity to shoot Casting Crowns on the Thrive Tour when they came through Toledo and performed at the Huntington Center. Casting Crowns was supported on this tour by Mandisa and Sidewalk Prophets (I’ll have photos of their sets up soon). The production for all 3 bands was fantastic and it made for a really enjoyable concert. If you have a chance to catch this tour when it comes through your town, I highly recommend it.
