My bro, Blake . . . the coolest speed skater.

I know Blake isn't at the Olympics this time . . . but it's never to soon to introduce you to the next Olympic Gold Medalist for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia, right? :) 


Tomorrow he starts a series of races . . . it's the US Jr Championships. Tomorrow he races in the 500m and the 3000m. Please keep him in your prayers.

It was super fun to go to our local skating rink and set up a studio right on the ice to do these photos. It was great! Blake (a very likable guy) made friends with the manager of the ice rink. He asked if we could get in early some time and do a photo session on the ice, and the manager said yes! It was so much fun. At first we had some trouble getting the lights to work with us . . . but we got it figured out after some tweaking. But I got the photos I was after and that's all that mattered to me.

Have a great weekend, everyone! I'm not sure how much I'll get to post over the weekend since I'll be gone. Well, it's tired and I'm getting late . . . ;) 

Signing off for today. God bless your socks off,

Capture. Create. Discover.
Something Amazing!
