the Shorts

so the time has come to share. last week, i was privileged enough to get together w/ the shorts to shoot some photos for justin's birthday present (he turns 30 today). i had such a fun time with them. i had to wait to share though so that justin's present would be a surprise.

this little girl loves the camera. other than being photogenic, i mean she really loves the camera. i could not get her to stop looking at it.

i love this pic of the two of them.

Bella (the dog) was priceless throughout the whole morning, this is just one of her many moments.

So adorable. you can see how much she resembles her dad here.

i love it, just a classic of this girl and her mommy.

like I said, she loves the camera

Friday the 13

So as many have heard, I was stoked to watch Danny Hinote get some blood back for the dirty hit by Dustin Byfuglien in the last six seconds of their last meeting. never the less, with Andy back in the line up, someone had to scratch last night, and Danny did, but so did Byfuglien.

Brad Boyes getting ready to score the sole goal of the game.

Cam Janssen taking down Johnson

WALT!!! or for those not from saint louis, Keith Tkachuk

I acctually thought he was going to get a penalty or thrown out of the game at one point because he was livid with chicago's keith talking his mouth off.

Cristobal Huet, who only missed one during the night, unfortunatly for him, that was all it took.

Mason focused like none other. his look is intense. . .

. . . but not as intense as Kane's. This is in the final few minutes of the game. Chicago had a good opportunity but could not benefit from it.

I love this photo. Toews was trying to bait Barret Jackman for the entire first period. This was one of those moments.

The game was great and for all of those obnoxious chicago fans, I will see you on April 1st.

you guessed it that is eric brewer. . .

a season of injuries

So I have a bit of an obsession w/ sports. specifically, hockey, cycling and swimming. for any of you who do not follow these fantastic expressions of energy, it is winter and therefore hockey season!!!. now, the Saint Louis Blues happen to be my favorite team and my hometown team, and they just so happen to have their practice rink about 10 mins from my house. This is why I have tons of pictures.
Well this season has been a bit of a tragety, simply because of injuries. let me list them
4 . eric brewer
6 . erik johnson
9 . paul kariya
10 . andy mcdonald
19 . dj king
25 . yan stastny
46 . roman polak
are all out of commission right now. but also during the season we have lost for extensive periods of time or for key games.

7 . keith tkachuk
35 . manny legace
42 . david backes
74 . tj oshie

and these are only the people that I remember. there could possibly be more even though it seems impossible
that being said, let me tell you about my surprise when I came to practice and found not the whole team but only numbers 4, 10, 19 and 35 out skating. (also #55 Cam Janseen cam to skate) so exciting!!!!

I am determined to get a shot of this stuff getting broken during a game.

This is what the ice looked like about 45 minutes into practice time. yeah . . . it was a little bit disconcerting.

DJ King and Eric Brewer back on the ice.

Eric Brewer taking on Manny Legace. . .

so forgive me for the bad shots, but I was at the other end of the rink where i usually sit.
