    Been Gone a Long Time...

    Lots a new names here, as well as alot of familiar ones!! I just hope the familiar ones remember who I am....
    Anyways, I've been really busy this past year. My wife got pregnant in February, we bought our first home (a condo) in March (a new build that we moved into in July) and my wife Jennifer had a baby boy on November 9th, 2005!! His name is Ethan, and he weighed in at 6lbs, 8oz. at birth, which was at 11:59am via c-section. This is a picture of him at one month. He now weighs about 8lbs, and both mother and baby (and me ;) ) are doing great. It's really been an exciting, happy year, with a bit of stress and anxiety thrown into the mix as well.
    My photography was put on the backburner this past year, but I'll be picking it back up very soon. I also hope to spend more time on the computer other than just a few minutes at a time here and there. Thanks for looking and I'm glad to see everyone is doing well.
    Happy Holidays!!

    Re: Been Gone a Long Time...

    Great to hear from you again. Thanks for the update and congrads on the new addition to the family. My daughter made me a grandfather for the first time this year as well so I know a little about this new baby thing. Hope to see lots more pictures of him over the coming months. Welcome back.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Welcome Back!

    What a handsome little guy! And a great excuse for satying away from us for a while. In fact, I can't think of a better reason. But I'm glad you're back. And I guess you have a new photo subject to focus on, huh?

    Thanks Everyone!!

    We appreciate the very nice comments and congrats about the baby. Lil' Ethan is great little boy!!
    Paul, most definitely we will have to make it back out there and hopefully soon, but dude, you gotta make it out to CO. this summer. There are quite a few birds out here too ya know. ;) Congrats on the Uncle gig!!
    PJ, Ethan definitely gives me another subject to shoot, and it''ll be a challenge for me because I shoot mostly landscapes and don't shoot alot portrait/people/candids. I think I'll be spending more time in the lighting forum learning some new tricks and getting tips from the good portrait photogs here.
    Again, I really appreciate all the well wishes from everyone and I'll be trying my best to post more on the boards. The little guy keeps us pretty busy at the moment but it's already starting to slow down a bit. Here is hoping this next year is just a good as the last, but just a little less busy!!

    Merry Christmas to Everyone!!!
    Regards,
    Brian
