Henry is an optician in the Navy and met Jenny while working on base in Pensacola. They got engaged and are having their wedding ceremony this spring up in Virginia. Unfortunately, they are geographically seperated, so when Jenny was down visiting for Thanksgiving, we took advantage of an beautiful evening shooting downtown Pensacola on Palafox Pier! They are both super fun people with a great sense of humor and I’m sure they had some jokes at my expense

I was called by the Charbonneau’s to take a couple pictures for their annual Christmas card/letter and headed out to their place to grab some images of the family a couple weeks ago. Chuck and Mary are both optometrists in Pensacola and have a gorgeous house right on the water across the Bayou from me… Chuck was in the Navy and I actually took over his billet in Okinawa and it has been nice to finally meet up with him and get to know his family. Their kids are both adorable and their son and my son are only 3 days apart in age. I had a blast shooting them and may take them up on the offer to use their house for other shoots in the future!
Their son REALLY wanted to use my camera to take a picture… He’s pretty good :)

I lived right down the road from American Village when I was stationed in Okinawa. Even after 22 months on the island and 3 other vacations to visit family, I never have ridden the Ferris Wheel here. D was super excited when he saw the Ferris Wheel and we took 2 rides around and had a blast. The next evening he wanted to go ride again, so I used the opportunity to grab some long exposures before we went on our ride. When we were finished, I grabbed some portraits of us using my remote shutter release. I’m loving that D is getting old enough to go out shooting with me and he is definitely gaining interest in photography!
On the way home from shooting a wedding West Palm Beach with Mike Olbinski, I drove right through a pretty big storm east of the Escambia Bay Bridge. As the rain cleared, I was able to see the huge formation in my rear view mirror. Over the bridge there is a Tom Thumb gas station perched on a hill with the parking lot facing the Bay, so I pulled off and headed that way. I got set up in time to grab this still of the monster rain shaft, but in #classicChrisfail style, my intervalometer batteries died! Luckily I had spares which I quickly installed and was able to capture the rest of the shelf cloud (I think that’s what it’s called) passing by!
