Young girl fishing on Caesar Creek Lake

Back in 2006, when Emilia and I were first dating, we put our relationship to the test by going camping at Caesar Creek State Park. Spending so many days together in close company with each other can either strengthen or derail a relationship. Fortunately, we found ourselves to be very compatible with each other. In a few days we will be celebrating our second wedding anniversary along with Isabella turning five months old. If it wasn’t for that long weekend back in 2006, we may never have reached this point in our lives.

This photo was taken with Emilia’s point and shoot Nikon she had with her. I can’t remember if she or I took the photo, but it was shot after I gave her some pointers and changed the settings on her camera. It is also one of the most popular photos on


With 3 weeks to go until the due date, Emilia and I are busy preparing for the arrival of our first child. The past 9 months have definitely been filled with anticipation, nervousness and unequaled joy. Our lives are not changing, they are being completed.

Belvedere Gardens

One of Emilia’s photos from our trip to Vienna in 2007. The statues that surrounded the garden between the Upper and Lower Belvederes are very intricate and well kept.

Emilia's foliage

Emilia using my Fujifilm camera to capture this photo. She loves using the macro on this camera. As a photographer, it is always interesting to see how someone else views the same scene you are looking at.

Engagement Photo

Emilia and I went back to Schiller Park where we got engaged to take some photos. The proposal happened in February on the coldest day of the year, -20F. These photos were taken during the hottest day of the year (so far) 92F. This also marks the first time that a photo of me has been posted, and yes, I’m supposed to be blurred!

Daisies by Emilia

It was bound to happen sooner or later. When you are getting married, things change in your life. Just as I make room in my life for Emilia, now there is room on this photoblog for her photos. We took a walk while attending the Hawk’s 50th Wedding Anniversary and found these beautiful daisies near Acme, PA. On a side note, Emilia will have these same flowers in her bridal bouquet.
