Hello and welcome to Chris Earle Photography's blog. Over the next few weeks and months I'll be highlighting the different types of photography that I like to do, sharing some of my favorite images, and letting you know about some exciting special offers. Check back often as I highlight the portrait, children's, maternity, wedding, commercial, and sports photography that I like to do.

On location at the JMU Arboretum

At Chris Earle Photography, we love taking photos in great locations. In the late spring, there are few places prettier than the gardens at JMU. The azaleas are just coming into bloom - let us know if you's like to schedule a session.

Trying to break the 4 minute mile

Three runners from the University of Virginia Men's Track Team attempted to break the coveted 4 minute mile last evening at Lannigan Field. Here a few photos from the event.

The Rabbits set the early pace in attempt to help three UVA runners break 4 minutes in the mile.

Stride for stride in the first turn, the rabbits help break the wind for the eventual leaders.

Just past the 800m mark, Emil Heineking, Virginia, lane 2, starts to make his move on the pace setting rabbit.

With 1200m complete, Heineking is followed by fellow Virginia runners Andrew Jesien and Sintayehu Taye. You can see from Heineking's expression that the last lap is going to be a tough one. With 300m to go, Heineking takes one last peek at the clock.

On the final lap, University of Virginia senior Andrew Jesien took the lead and finished in a remarkable 4:02:18, just two seconds shy of his desired time.

Natue Photography - Racoon

Raccoon in Ding Darling State Park, Florida

Usually when you think of Ding Darling State Park on Sanibel Island in Florida, you think of shore birds. While driving the loop, the kids, who couldn't have cared less about the birds, were very excited to see this little guy walk out of the mangroves and come up within a few yards of the car.

Worth the hike

On location in Shenandoah National Park.

We hiked about a mile down stream to find just the right location for this set of portraits. It was definitely worth it.
