Sebastian "Seabass" Dinosuar Huckabee

I'd like to introduce you to my new friend and life mate Seabass.

to get things started this is where his name came from.

and this is he.

This little guy is the puppy i've always wanted and it makes me happy :) so don't be surprised if you see him... a lot...

and obviously he is going to be the most photographed dog ever.

My friend Jessica was kind enough to edit a few of the photos I took of seabass!

she is really impressive.

I hope everyone gets a chance to meet seabass...

I live in Nashville

and the grass is just as green here as other places.

A person will worship something

A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.

decisions decisions decisions

They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. ~Edgar Allan Poe

it's funny how much my mind can get wrapped up in such trivial things in life. I worry about things that I should just let go of. I worry about what other people think... I look at the little picture instead of the big one. I trust the moment instead of trusting a future plan.

While I was running today I started thinking about how I got to where I am now... I have lived so many places and done so many things that sometimes I feel I have already lived numerous lifetimes... and now here I am in Nashville. If you would have asked me 5 years ago if I ever thought I would live in nashville I would have said hecks no and probably laughed at you. I had never even been to nashville nor ever thought about living here... yet Nashville is where I find myself. It's funny the way life goes sometimes... I often sit in wonder of how God works ... It's almost tricky. I make decisions... I am faced with tons of decisions every day. like today I could have stayed in bed and slept until one... but instead I decided to get up and go to a new church... Church!... and I am very happy that I did... I made new friends and got to see some old friends that I didn't expect to see...

I know I have my own free will... but it's sometimes undeniable that my own free will and the decisions I make are all part of a bigger plan... like God uses the decisions I make... good or bad... to always effect my life in a positive way and help me grow... It's almost like a conspiracy... I guess that is where "He will turn all things to good for those who love him" really rings true. My imperfections are not a surprise to Him... He knows them and loves me all the same. It's quite comforting to know that even when my faith is at its absolute weakest and when I am living in the moment and not trusting the one who I believe created me for a reason that I can still be a part of a plan that is bigger than myself... It truly takes an act of your will to trust... you have to let go and believe in order to trust... and that is not easy... but when you do the load that this weird but beautiful life seems to throw on your back becomes so much lighter. So I will continue to chose to trust... because for me it's a lot more comforting to trust than to distrust.

Mckendree Augustas

Did a photoshoot early this morning with one of my best friends on the planet. I've known him since I was 5 years old. We had a lot of fun walking around this really awesome bridge in east nashville. Mckendree is an amazing person and has a heart of gold.

Today is a really hard day for me... there are things happening that are out of my control and it really messes with my head and my emotions. But I am lucky that I have a lot of awesome people and friends around me that are keeping me distracted and having fun.

I put a down payment on my new best friend yesterday. His name is Sebastian or "Seabass" for short. He's a miniature long haired dachshund... and he stole my heart. I don't have a picture at them moment because he won't be ready until next week... but believe me... you will be overwhelmed with photos once I get the little fella.

this is what he'll look like one day.

only seabass will be cuter.

i deleted my last post because I was writing it while I was being WAY too emo.

I don't get around much anymore

Missed the saturday dance
Heard they crowded the floor
Couldn't bear it without you
Don't get around much anymore

Thought Id visit the club
Got as far as the door
They'd have asked me about you
Don't get around much anymore

Darling, I guess my minds more at ease
But nevertheless, why stir up memories

Been invited on dates
Might have gone but what for
Awfully different without you
Don't get around much anymore

I may be getting a puppy today.

Seattle Wedding

so I recently went on a trip to Seattle to shoot a wedding with Jessica Valle... just thought I would show you a couple of the shots... it was a great time and a beautiful autumn wedding. Kyle and Chelsey looked great. And it was especially fun to shoot with someone as talented as Jessica... she has such a unique eye... and gets lots and lots of incredible shots.

it's snowing.

I'm standing at my kitchen window watching the snow begin to fall. I just brewed a cup of my Dorman's AA Blue Mountain Coffee that I bought in Kenya, this is possibly the best morning I've had in a while. 

I suppose it's because I didn't grow up in an area where it snows often but there is something magical about snow... it's graceful.
