Latest work, inspiration and deep thoughts by Titus Childers.

Miss Sophie Bricker.....The Eyes have it!

Sophie, The Whole World.  The Whole World, Sophie.  I think that it's important that we take this time to reflect on a couple points of fact.  #1  Sophie is as intelligent as she is gifted.  and #2 Since she is a native daughter of my mother land and the self proclaimed "Good Life" state of Nebraska, I feel like I should point out that she made it uncomfortably apparent what little effort that I put into my academics while in high school.  I mean holy crap between her and her sisters(whose senior pics I did two years ago) combined GPA's make my lifetime GPA  look like scratches on Andy Dufrenes cell wall before he learned how to manage pressure and time to escape Shawshank Prison.

Despite my extreme lack of brain straining effort during my High School years one things clear.  Sophie and I make a formidable team.  I met up with Sophie and her mom in Ashland, NE.  There's nothing quite like going to random feel good locations with clients who unload every ounce of trust in your abilities to come back with great portraits.  

At the time of this blog I'm pretty sure Sophie is about half way to her end goal.  I can't thank her or her brilliant family The Strickers(POPPA Stricker thank you for you service to this country!)enough for letting me and Sophie do our thing.  Good luck girl and everyone else keep tunneling through Shawshank!

Cheers,

Titus

Levi...........The Strauss costs Extra!

  One of the perks of this glorious career of mine is that it leads back home to Nebraska a few times  a year to squeeze in the occasional senior portrait session between weddings and double fisting freshly grown corn on the cob and tomatoes from my mothers garden.

  This laddie here is Levi.  The boy is immediately certified legit in my book because he is a wrestler at my old high school in Aurora, NE.  Well to be sure he is a great many other things but the proof is in the pudding folks!  Wrestlers are badasses! A massive wave of nostalgia washed over me as I  walked upstairs in my old gym, took off my shoes and dug my toes into the very mats that I once shed my fair share of blood, sweat and tears(no one ever actually cried we just had something in our eyes!).  Since my days they've made amazing additions to those hallowed halls.  I even noticed my name on the record boards.  Mad respect to all my brothers who dawn the head gear!  

Despite my walk down glory days lane and the occasional Vision Quest theme song playing through my head Levi and I stayed the course and knocked out some fun images.  It's hard to roll an entire high school experience into a single portrait session but this kid is made of stern stuff and we captured those personas that mattered to him. Good Luck next year in college young man!

Cheers,

Titus
