aerial photos - tanker lightering

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to photograph a tanker lightering. What is lightering, you ask?

When the big supertanker comes down the channel (Delaware Bay), and it's full of that "black gold", it sits too low in the water to make it through. So, along comes the mini-tanker to offload some of the oil, making the big ship lighter...get it?

Jolene and Derrick's latest work - Julianne!

I just photographed the fam on Thursday at their home - we got some great images! It helps a lot when the baby is super happy and smiley the entire time. I especially enjoy going into homes where so much of my work is on display. :)
Here are a few favs and a show...enjoy!
