Birmingham Groves High School – Senior Night

A few weeks ago I was recruited to go home and photograph Grace’s basketball game on their senior night. Given that I had never seen my sister play a game in high school I jumped at the chance. Here are some of my favorites from the night.

These fine folks are my grandparents. Hands down the worlds best fans right here. They have been to every milestone in all our lives.

Warming up…

Honoring the seniors

Getting ready for the game…

Playing with Light

It’s officially a family affair this photography hobby of mine. My sister got her first digital Canon Rebel while I was home last weekend and of course we spent the entire time playing with the settings. Because we’re awesome we spent Saturday night (yes, Saturday night) in the dark playing with multiple and long exposures. Here’s some of the fun…

We even got brother in on the action…

The Halloran standard, get all three of us in a single picture and at least one of us has our tongue out

My favorite – it’s a total lie but you get the idea

Me and Gracie down at the Train Yard

On my trip home my siblings and I went on a photo safari in downtown Detroit. Not knowing how much longer this beautiful building will be in our lives, our first stop was the old Train Depot. We packed an old mink of my grandma’s as a prop.

We went down to find the Ambassador Bridge for some more photos

Cystic Fibrosis Scholarship Foundation – The Art of Fine Wine

A few weeks ago I had the honor of photographing the annual wine tasting for the Cystic Fibrosis Scholarship Foundation. The event is celebrating it’s second year in Chicago and was hosted by the Foundation’s founding families (say that 3 times fast); the Bottorff’s and Harmon’s. Titled “The Art of Fine Wine”, the event is focused on exploring wines from different areas around the globe. This year the focus was on wines from France.

The event was held at the always gorgeous River East Art Center downtown.  Kristie did a great job planning the event and all the delicious food was provided by the wonderful folks at Blue Plate. (Of course I sampled some of it…or all of it. I was especially excited about the Crepe station!)

There we so many wonderful pictures from the day I put them together in a gallery for quick viewing. (If you click on a thumbnail you can see them full sized.) Enjoy!

Nicole – A Photo Shoot

I finally got the guts to go out and buy myself a new lens that I am pretty sure my friends are sick of hearing about. Well, it finally arrived on my birthday and my friend Nicole was kind enough to test it out with me last weekend. Nicole just finished Law School and passed the bar this summer. Congrats Nicole and thanks for being my model for the day!

One of my favorites right here!
