48: Pre School Update

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.

46: Vaccinating Our Children

With the swell of anti-vaxers on the rise throughout social media I decided to dedicate todays episode on the topic. Ill share a little on the reasons why my wife and I decided to have our children vaccinated as well as provide you guys with a link to an educational video that inspired this episode.

45: Talking Games and Sports w/guest Chris

 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. 

32: My Son Told Me He Had A Nightmare

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.

29: What Best Suits Your Kids As They Build Their Credit?

Building credit is something we all have to experience as we transition from young adult to adulthood. In a DM with @tricia.snaps.fit.pix she shared how her son is looking to build his credit. As parents we often want to tell our children what to do. With years of experience its had not to. However Patricia put it best when she said that rather than telling him what to do she was instead looking for a path that would best suit him.

24: Glen Mills School

What do you do as a parent when your kids are mistreated by school faculty. In the case of Glen Mills School things got to the point where the law had to step in and all students were removed from the campus. With a secret history of physically abusing students its a wonder how this schools culture went without repercussion for so long. My wife and I often have hypothetical conversations about how we would handle things if our children were in the same situation. However with our kids too young for school I really want to pass the question off and hear what you guys think. Have you been in this situation as a parent? Do you know someone whose gone through this? How did you or they approach things?

20: My Son Feels Like He Got Lost

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.

19: Ending The Photography Podcast

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.

16: Sunset Engagement Session

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.
