Welcome to my blog. Looking through my posts you will find that I love and have a passion for photography and although my expertise so to speak is in Sports Action, I have been getting into wildlife and senior portraits. No matter what I'm shooting I want to bring my client the best possible shot I can and give them / you a photograph that you will cherish for a lifetime. If your looking for someone to capture your child in action, to show the intensity and emotion in which your child plays, look no further. Just drop me a line (e-mail) at homerkenpo@aol.com.

Turning 50

Recently a very close good friend, one I've know since 1st grade, and myself turned 50.  We brought our family and friends together for a great bbq.  It was nice seeing some friends I haven't seen in quite some time.  With growing older our kids are now having kids and they had a blast playing in a dirt pile in my backyard.  Usually parents will prevent their kids playing in the dirt, especially while at a bbq at a friends house, but this time it was different, which I loved.  I feel kids need to be kids and should spend their time playing.  There is plenty of time for them in life to become serious, but not this day.
I spent a good amount of time just sitting in the grass capturing some shots of the kids playing and running around.
