Often, while Jeffrey is searching for old records in various garage sales and antique shops, Catherine runs across unique vintage objects that we stockpile for later projects.

We were asked to photograph some of the newborns and families at one of the Chicago area hospitals. These photos were used in social media and medical marketing. Now

Now that I’m not traveling as much, this awful northern winter is really getting to me. I’m finding myself looking back at photos from the beach and happily thinking of warm weather. I actually do have quite an archive of surfing photography that I should share one day. Here are a few images that I recently ran across. They were all taken near the Cocoa Beach Pier using my 100-400 Canon
