My Brother the Rocker

I just wanted to share a few pics of My Brother the Rocker jamming with his band.


This post started out as the second post in the over 300 entries that have been made on the blog (and it also started out being called ‘My Borther the Rocker’ – but that’s what ed’s are for. So indeed, it is a special occasion when the author of the post is none other than James herself (which sounds kind of strange, but I assure it is not)! So let’s hear James for making the next baby step in the world of the blog, and let’s hear it for her (not so little) brother Andy and his mastery of all things that rock – great job, my homeslice (and of course to your fellow rockers Mackey & Slorby)!

Nathan & Nicole!

Bringing our big day to a close on Wednesday was the lovely couple, Nathan & Nicole!

They warmed up the winters night (is that a cheesy cliche or what) with their playful ways – uhhhh…that sounds kind of creepy, but rest assured again fellow bloggers, as their was nothing but good times going on!

Again, let me be clear, these two came to the studio and we all had a great time with this fantastic couple! The photographs were great, and it’s because the people in the photographs were great! We thank them for taking time this evening to come and visit us, and would now like to offer up some pics from the night – Enjoy!

I don’t know what the story is, but lately we have been blessed with the great fortune of working absolutely beautiful babies! In keeping with the trend, this past Wednesday we had the great opportunity of working with a really great young man by the name of Preston!

This beautiful boy came in and lit up the studio with his radiant personality and charming good looks! In fact, I’m just going to stop talking about it and move on to some of the photographs – before I do, though, a big thank you to Mom for all of her help! Enjoy!

On this past Tuesday a man by the name of Jeff and his faithful assistants (Ma & Bro) stopped by the Otis & James Super Center for a little photographic fun! Indeed, that description makes it sound like we are a studio still living in the seventies, and that somewhere in our logo there should be some really bad clip-art of a camera with something crazy popping out of the top of it – like a bird or something zany like that. Rest assured, fellow bloggers, this is not the route that we will be taking.

Getting back to our ‘photographic fun’, it was indeed for the taking on this pleasant afternoon. Jeff was in fine form, ready to set the dial to eleven, and it truly showed! Jeff was awesome, and his family was a pleasure as well. We would like to thank this group for making the trip to ot-ja land (ot-ja, I like indeed!), and we will now offer up a steaming hot plate of photographic fun for all – Enjoy!

Valentine Special

Last night we had the great opportunity of working with the beautiful Elizabeth and the stunning Jordan (or James, as our own James is fond of calling him)! The occasion was for our Valentine Special that we are offering during all of February. We invite one and all to check out the Valentine part of our site for the details (which can be accessed by clicking here, or by clicking the link that says VALENTINE on the home page, or just by clicking any of the other links that appear in this post.)

Much Love, Y’all – and thank you again to our lovely models that totally and completely rocked – Enjoy!

Erick & Amy (The Conclusionl…For Now!)

I guess that the real conclusion will be on their wedding day, but yesterday marked the conclusion of their engagement photographs! You can find their original session here, and like that time we again had a great time as we were joined by this happy couple and the always lovely Hope!

We had a great time with the shoot, and when I say we I mean everyone that was involved with the shoot, as today the talented Ali was playing the part of Otis (while the real Otis sat back in the office and smoked cigars that had been lit with $100 bills.) We can’t wait for the big day, and would now like to offer up some of the goods from yesterday – Enjoy!

All I have to say to this beautiful young lady is thank you for being so totally great to work with (as was your Momma!) Our time together this past Monday was fabulous, and we wish you the best 1st Birthday possible!

Instead of all this looking at words, let’s just look at her snaps from the day – Enjoy!

This past Saturday we welcomed to our studio Lucas and his and his gang of Lovely Ladies (Mom, GF and Aunt)! Good men usually come with good women, and this was true all around – Lucas was great to work with and everyone couldn’t have been any easier to work with!

We had a great time working together, and Lucas tore it up crazy style in the photographic department. We would like to thank one and all for making a little Otis & James time for us, and would now like to gaze at the goods – Enjoy!

This evening (now last evening) we joined up with a new friend of Otis & James – Gracie (and mom too!)

It was a Friday night filled with fun, as we threw animals in the air, ate some marshmallows did our best model posing, and then Otis did his best helium voice for everyone – it was a regular party!

We had a great time working with this wonderful duo, and the photographs are fantastic! We thank both of them for taking time this night to come down and visit us, and now offer up some snaps from the festivities – Enjoy!

The horror…the horror. (TNSP v.6)

Check out the updated About Us page here on the site.

To those of you whom have asked, the photographs below are one of the reasons we have not been in a rush to get married – for the sake of humanity we don’t know if we should.


And my favorite…

Seriously, this guy scares me. This is sooooooo not what I would want my photographer to look like. This person takes bad pictures. This person might have been in jail for a while.
