My grandpa, Richard John Welter, passed away last night. His health was going downhill, and my mom says he was holding on to life, waiting for his other two son’s to arrive, to say goodbye. These pictures were taken roughly one month ago at a hospital in Anoka, Minn. While he was lying in his hospital bed, grandpa, the big Minnesota Twins baseball fan he is, was asking about the Twins and if they were on TV that night (They were, and won).
I was not with my grandpa at the time of his death, but when I was with him in Anoka, he seemed at peace and was as happy as anybody could be in his condition. He was a great grandpa, and I know that he will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Richard (Dick) John Welter.
Since working at KFGO, the top rated news radio station in the Fargo-Moorhead area, I’ve been able to witness some cool things. This would have to be one of the most memorable event of all. Yesterday the Whapeton, N.D.-based 188th Engineer Company came home from Kuwait. I could feel the anticipation and excitement from talking to family members before the airplane came to the gates, and also from the troops as they walked briskly towards their families looking through the crowds trying to find a familiar face.
This is the plane that brought the troops in. There was a fire truck on both sides of the airplane spraying the plane’s engines so the troops could get off ASAP.
Here is my video package from the event.
I was lucky enough to be a part of Becca and Jason’s wedding day, and being able to be there to capture their special day. Thank you again!
Becca and Jason were one of my first shoots downtown Minneapolis, Minn. for this year. We met at Aster Café, a coffee shop on Main Street, and I greeted them by snapping pictures of them as they walked towards me.
Like all the shoots I go on, I had a great time hanging out with the Becca and Jason, and I was fortunate enough to be with them on their wedding day as well. Look for that post tomorrow.
This was one of my senior shoots last summer with Stephen. I also took his older sister’s engagement photos as well, which I will post later. Stephen was good times, and he was very photogenic. It’s always fun to take senior photos because they are all about taking fun photos, and it’s also a great pleasure for me to capture a very important moment in their life.
This engagement shoot was in Minneapolis, Minn., and I had such a fun time with Emily and Cole. Emily had done some research before the shoot and brought some fun props to use, and we all had a great time with what we thought was going to be gloomy/rainy weather.
I had three different photo shoots with Rebecca Lebak, twice in the summer and once again in the winter. She needed some head shots for an upcoming pageant and I was more than happy to help out.
I don’t really care for couscous, but I love parmesan cheese. I tried the combo of the two thinking maybe I would like it, but the parmesan cheese did not sway me from my distaste for couscous.
Three straight days of rain. It was a pretty uneventful string of days, to say the least.
My new favorite pop tart flavor: Frosted Confetti Cupcake. If you like cake batter, you will like this pop tart flavor.
Fridays have a special meaning to me this summer. It means I get to see my sweet Jasmine Maki!
Last summer I had the privilege to take my little sister’s senior pictures. After looking back at theses photos, it makes me think about how fast time has gone by. I know I’m being cliché, but it really does feel like not much has time has gone by from when we were growing up, and I was cutting her hair with some jagged scissors. Fortunately for her I did not cut her hair for this photo shoot.
Jasmine and me with sister Sarah, that’s how she is programmed into my phone, after her high school graduation. She will be attending Concordia College located in Moorhead, Minn.
