You can click on the picture and make it bigger and look at their smiles. THEY ARE REAL...Ha! They are soooo happy I am photographing their wedding...(I just know that is the reason).

New Wedding Coming Up!

This is Monica McCants and Detrick Parnell. They will be celebrating their marriage on Saturday, June 6, 2009, at the Beulah Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama.

We just shot their engagement pictures and I wanted to get one ready while I work on the rest.

I have already photographed her formal wedding dress pictures. If you know the super-secret password you can go look at them here.

I should get the rest up by the end of the week.

New Shopping Cart UP & RUNNING!!!

Ok...all the links have been processed. I have a previous wedding and 3 current weddings on the new Shopping Cart. I will be adding another engagement session shortly.

All of the processes of ordering are basically the same. The differences include a whole new interface and the fact that all of your print orders are sent directly to you. That means I have to get the retouching and enhancing done from the very beginning.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me @ (334) 265-6211.

New Gallery Section Coming Soon...Maybe

This is a screen shot of the new Gallery (Storefront) that is coming soon (You can click on the graphic for a larger look). It is rather complicated to get setup...that's putting it mildly...and I don't want to talk about it anymore...

I am just about ready to tie it in with my current website. No changes on your end will be necessary. When you click on a "Gallery" for a specific Wedding, portrait, etc., it will take you to a screen that is specific for that "event" or person.

One of the nice things is, when you order prints they will be sent directly to you. The bad side is I cannot do the Fine Art print orders through this system, I can still print them, but you will need to call, or come by to look at samples of Fine Art stuff (and yes, there is a difference).

I am currently waiting for my store-front domain name "" to be okey-dokied and sent through the system so I can point it to specific events. I can get to the main page, but I need to get to specific weddings, etc. so that will take 24-48 hours...hmmmm.

Anyway, barring any suicide in the next couple of days, over this, I should have it linked to some recent pictures.

Just received an email...

My website AND email will be down TOMORROW (Saturday - 4/25/09) from 8:00am - 10:00am central time, for maintenance.

I Am Deeply Depressed...

Yeah...I took their online test...I am officially 73 years old...

This and the fact, my daughter Michelle is having to teach me the importance of Facebook...I am doomed.

Holy Cow...No Disrepect Intended!!

If you want to hear some truly moving music, go to here.

Be sure to read how he got started with his music. That is what it is all about. Except for Rap...

I don't think you can listen to samples, but trust me, order it.

If you are wondering, I listen to a LOT of a station here. I have it linked from my Homepage.

I cannot wait for my CD to come in.

Monica McCants Formal Bridals

Oops, can't see them!

I am working on them now. I am not sure if I will be able to post any, since I am moving to a different "store". I need to see if I can selectively lock some categories out.

You know, fiance can't see, and all.

Homepage, Shopping Cart All Changing...

...but not right away.

I am in the process of deciding what I what to bring to the new website, new stuff to add, making everything super-duper neat...and oh yeah, just how much time it is going to take.

All this is a really big deal. If you are not aware, it is easier to start a NEW website from scratch than it is to change an existing one. There is so much planning and work involved. You want to make the changes (in my case hosting and shopping cart changes as well) as quickly as possible then flip the switch.

The hosting and shopping cart changes just complicate everything exponentially. Currently both are located with the same company. The changes involve separate companies servers and linking together.

I will keep you posted here of the progess AND the process.

It's Heeerrrreeee!!!

Just click the graphic and you will go to the website. Had a little issue, since I never clicked the "Publish" button. But it's up and running now!

I still need to do a few design changes, but was just in a hurry to get it up.

Blue Moon Gallery About to be Launched...hopefully

They are trying to access my domain to launch the website. The service provider was having problems with a password issue over the weekend...(shhhh, but it works for me).

It is still in the development stage, but pretty much done.

In the meantime here is a really neat Greek proverb:

"You must keep quiet or say only things that improve silence." - GREEK PROVERB

The Blue Moon Gallery...It's Coming!!

This will be a whole new website, which will be super-cool. I would put a link to the website, but it isn't up yet.

For a little while in the beginning, it will be a "look how pretty..." site. But, it will be kinda neat and will allow me to do others things with it in the future. There will probably be some links and stuff that do not work, but I will get to it.

For now, you can view the pretty pictures as a little larger-than-thumbnail, but still cool. When I get the links set, you can view the artwork on a full-screen.

You can click on the graphic, above to get a better look of the Homepage.
