It has been a couple weeks now since my son has been enrolled in preschool. Given the time that has passed I’ve received questions from other parents about how the experience has been. In today’s episode I share a little bit of what it’s been like from both my wife, and I. Also I share our son has been learning, and how his experience has been as a preschooler.
With the swell of anti-vaxers on the rise throughout social media I decided to dedicate todays episode on the topic.

Today we are back with guest Chris. We’re talking about games, teaching your kids about losing, and how to process losing. It can be difficult as a parent to try to convey what it means to lose at a game. Taking the time to help our children through these moments and help develop them as they grow into adulthood is a very important lesson.
Playing games and teaching the lessons of being a good sport while winning as well as processing how to take a loss is something all parents teach their children. In todays episode I share my experience teaching my son as well as two other dads take on how they play games with their kids.
Parenting can be hard if you aren’t not on the same page with your partner. In today’s episode I share a little of my thoughts on co parenting and the importance of communication. Thank you guys for listening to these podcasts. Don’t forget to leave a like/5star rating and subscribe.
We all know those people who break up one day and then get back together the next. Im not here to throw anyone under the bus but I did think it would be an interesting subject to talk about on todays podcast. Dating in our school years prepares us for dating as adults. So as a parent it begs the question when do we allow our kids to start dating? Do we even need to "allow" them to start dating or do we let them make that decision on their own? All this and more on todays podcast.
Today marks the first time my son has actually expressed to me he had a nightmare. Most nights he has woke up crying we would assume it was because of a bad dream but we also have to run through the check list of what else it could be. He wouldn’t express what was bothering him in the past and that was a big reason for checking his temp, his bedsheets, an anything else it might be. So to hear him tell me he had a bad dream was first off sad, but second kind of a relief because now I had a footing to stand on when helping him through his feelings.
Raising children in an era where it feels like everyone has an online presence can present the question “do you put your kids out there on social media?” In todays podcast I share my own views on the topic and why I don’t (or try not to) post my children on my social media.
In light of recent news stories about the Fisher Price rock n play sleeper I decided to share my experience as a parent owning one of these. I had no idea of the tragedies involved with this device and only wish to educate my fellow parents to be cautious if you own one.
So what diapers do I buy for my newborn? In todays podcast I answer a question that my children may ask me one day when they join the ranks of parenthood.
Fear can creep in at a young age for out children and in todays episode I talk about how my son felt he was lost when he woke up to what seemed to be an empty house. When I put my son to bed the other night I went into the garage to gets some work done. Little did I notice that he had got up and out of bed only to find himself in an “empty” house. When I came in he looked at me a little scared and told me he got lost. He was referencing a book we’ve read at night about a puppy who gets lost in a grocery store.
Today Im announcing the end of my photography podcast. Well not so much an end but more of a re branding. I have been thinking about what my intentions were for this podcast for a few months now and came to the realization that though I love capturing images I don’t really love talking about cameras or photography. So I decided to talk about something that I am passionate about on this podcast. That something is parenthood and being a father. I have envisioned being a parent for as long as I can remember and now that I am its something I talk about often in my day to day. I am also looking at this as a catalog of experiences that my children can ( if they want to) look back on and hear my thoughts or words of advice. As we get older we sometimes forget what it was like raising our little ones so when our children one day become parents I think it would be great to not only be able to help but to also have something like this that documents my learning/journey as its happening. So thank you for those who have supported the podcast. If hearing about parenthood interests you stick around.

Today on the podcast Im talking about a sunset engagement session I have booked for this weekend. Some of the things I like to prep mentally leading up to any photo session is a list of poses as well as what gear I would like to bring. The location of this shoot will be the dunes so having the proper cleaning tools on hand is important when working around sand.
New phone = new upgraded camera. So how do I capture better photos with the new iPhone X? In todays podcast we go into detail about some of the things you can do to step up your photo game. Some things still remain the same no matter the device you are using.
The Rule of Thirds.
in your cameras settings you can turn on the “grid” overlay. This will overlay some intersecting lines onto your screen. Then make sure one of the object you want the viewer to focus on in one of these cross sections. This is a simplified explanation of the rule of thirds.
Clean Your Lens
No matter how expensive your camera may be shooting with a dirty lens will result in amateur quality images. Unless it is a creative direction you are taking with your photograph I recommend cleaning your lens before capturing any image.
