It has been a while since I got creative with video. It is something I’ve always loved doing, but since editing is not something I ever really enjoyed I don’t get beyond the idea phase very much. I’ve got notebooks of ideas for short films and little projects, but most of them stay on paper. [...] Read more »
Displaying all posts for ‘Family’
For the last week I’ve been on vacation. On purpose I didn’t talk much about it, Twitter where we were or tell a lot of people what we were up to. In my mind, a vacation should be about unplugging, recharging and having a great time. All of those things happened this go around. I’m [...] Read more »
I spent a mostly unplugged Fathers Day yesterday and it was a beautiful thing. I had one piece of work that I needed to noodle on, but spending the afternoon in a theater filled with Wonderland creatures let the noodling happen whenever it needed. The family let me sleep in and then they made me [...] Read more »
Looking through old photos this weekend of the kids and then taking this one of them made me realize just how fast they are growing up and why every minute is more important then the next.
In case you haven’t figured it out, I’m very much a family guy. I love spending time with members of my family both here at home and anywhere they may gather. We stayed home for Christmas day, but then headed up to New Hampshire to see both Laura’s parents and mine for the weekend. It [...] Read more »
This is the photo we used in our holiday cards this year. I’m really psyched how it came out with even Roxie looking at the camera.
The snow started falling on Friday afternoon and didn’t stop until long after dark last night. In total we got somewhere around 15-17 inches in total. Everything is white and we had fun playing out in the snow. Of course it’ll be slush by the end of the week as the forecast is calling for [...] Read more »
Being a Dad is the most rewarding thing in the world and if you are doing it right then it has moments that are nothing but pure stress. Yesterday was one of those days. Dylan did some stupid stuff at school and my afternoon went straight from cruising along to permanent distraction from the stress [...] Read more »
We realized that ten years ago we had both of our families down to Virginia for Thanksgiving. Laura was pregnant with Dylan and it was the last turkey day we’d spend down there before moving back to New England. Having a house full of family this year made me very happy. I’ve been looking forward [...] Read more »
Neither of us remember what I said that made her do this. Might have been something about the Jonas Brothers or who knows what, but this picture has such great emotion to it that it makes me smile every time I see it. Part of the fun of being a parent is making [...] Read more »
Earlier this year, my daughter Emily discovered the stage. She is a natural for it and instantly was put in with older kids because the teachers saw that she needed to do more then what her age was up to. While she still says she doesn’t want to dance on stage, she has no problem [...] Read more »
I mentioned tonight on Twitter that I was making “porcupine burgers” for dinner and got more then one curious response and several requests for the recipe so I figured I’d post it here. This was a Chapman staple growing up. It was cheap, one pot and easy to make and have left overs from. Grab [...] Read more »
Anyone who knows me knows that my family is the most important thing in the world to me. I love being a father and a digital dad. Dylan and I were playing football last night and then we took some photos. This one really stuck out as one to cherish. Sure, the photographer in me [...] Read more »
I took this picture over the weekend at the baptism of my buddy Dan Gorgone’s son Max. I love so much about it. Even though Dylan isn’t looking at the camera, I still love it.
Being a Dad has always come with a whole bunch of challenges. That is part of being a parent. Last night Dylan was complaining that he had gotten stuck on a video game he was playing and he wanted to start over from the beginning. We had a talk about how this was quitting and [...] Read more »
