Shoot Party…

Okay, I am catching up on all my posts today. A little over a month ago I had the privilege to be invited to a shoot party hosted by Kelly Manno. We had a blast and our models were incredible! Thanks to Tasha and Jeff, and Laura for putting up with the rain and nutty photogs snapping photos of you all day…

Sorry for the slacking…

I just want to apologize to all of the readers of my Blog for not posting in awhile. I know I am a loser! I have been really busy and my blog has been the last thing on my mind but today is a new day and I am posting today!!!!!

Football (soccer for you Yankees) Baby!!!!!

I had a great chance to shoot some soccer on March 29th (sorry for the late post but lots of things on my mind) when the Brazilian under 20 national team was in town to play a friendly match against the under 18 Gallagher Academy team and the SIUE college team. Each local team played a half against Brazil, let me tell you watching Brazil is like watching a well choreographed Ballet. The footwork of the Brazilian team was jaw dropping. My friends Rebecca and Brian invited me, Brian is a great soccer player who played European and MLS soccer in the nineties. He now is part owner of the St. Louis Goalkeeping Academy which is one of the only full time academies of it type in the United States and implements the latest in international-level training methods. Not to mention he is an AC Milan fan so we support the same team!

Missing Cali :-(

Have I said how much I miss California lately! Their are many reasons I do miss it, my life would be quite different right now if I was still there. The reason I am thinking about it right now, SNOW!!!!! Don’t get me wrong I love snow but only if I can head down the slopes with a snowboard strapped to my feet in it, can’t do much with it in St. Louis other then shovel it. Not to mention after 7 years of having an SUV I just got a little sports car, smart thinking Chad. I’m off to make a snow angel and to try and avoid not eating the yellow snow, I heard its bad stuff.

Thought provoking…

Sometimes movies can be very thought provoking, deep and driven movies can leave you with a sense of knowing more then you did before. They can invoke change and can invoke hostility. Sometimes they just invoke a release from the troublesome world we live in, a little mind numbing humor. I recently watched Evan Almighty, the movie was good not great but one bit of dialogue really got me thinking so here it is. Morgan Freeman as God: “Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?”, this line really got me thinking. So many people pray for God to fix things but they don’t see that God is giving them the strength and opportunity to create the change. I have been as guilty as anyone of sitting back praying for God to create the change for me while not realizing that the whole time he was creating opportunities for me to make a meaningful life for myself with his help. DON’T LET THOSE CHANCES PASS, FOLLOW THE PATH!

A little puppy love!

I was out in the yard with a friends dogs and decided to shoot a little, they were going crazy running around enjoying the weather. Then we headed inside and they both crashed out and slept for hours!

What a great place!

I went to see a movie last night at the Moolah Theatre and Lounge. This place is amazing if you want to have a nice relaxing time at the movies. They have cushy leather couches to sit on so its like sitting at home with a giant screen in your living room. Great time with great company is what my night was!
