Thanks for taking a picture of me Jana! You are amazing!



Well, it's me of course! Hi, I'm Scott, just an ordinary guy who loves life and all the little nuances that it brings! Simply put, I'm a father to a wonderful son, a husband to a beautiful wife, and an amateur photographer who enjoys looking at the world through a piece of glass! I took up photography a couple of years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery. Since 12/07, I have lost 180 pounds, but found a real passion for documenting life with my camera. I could say that the big names out there have inspired me, and they have, But my true inspiration comes from the people I meet everyday who share the same thoughts and zeal I have for photography. We are truly blessed with some really great photographers around Nashville. So, what are you waiting for.... ...grab a camera, snap some pics, and enjoy life to the fullest!

A day in the country!

We had a great day on Saturday. My family, almost all of us, went to Ardmore, TN to visit some relatives we had not seen since 2000 when my grandmother died. It was a fun day to reminisce and update each other on how our lives have changed over the years. Can you tell we were in the country? I thought everyone had indoor plumbing by now.

It was also an opportunity to update our 6 month picture (my wife, sister and I). all together we have lost close to 500 pounds in a one year time frame. I think it's a great idea to take pictures of any journey. We do it when we go on vacation. So why not this type of journey also!

I did have a "light bulb" moment. You know, when the light bulb goes on and you are illuminated to all that is happening. My Aunt & Uncle wanted to make sure there was plenty of food that my sister, wife and I could eat. All of the sudden, I figured out something that I have known all along, but just now put into play. You see, this surgery I had is a life style change. When you go on a diet, you only try to eat certain types of foods. Or maybe certain foods only, like the dreaded beet diet! I would rather eat dirt than beets! Anyway, I told my Uncle not to worry about us, we would find something to eat, and we did! Every once in a while, even a blind squirrel finds a nut!

We ended the day at the cemetery where a lot of my relatives are buried. I think this is a tradition every time we go to Ardmore. We of course took lots of pictures there also!

It was a very enjoyable day and I hope it's not another 8 years before travel down that long country road!
