  • I'm a Colorado Photographer Now!

  • I know how often we can second guess a decision and wonder what life would be like had we not chosen it. In my life I had have made some pretty stupid choices and some pretty incredible choices. Those incredible choices have come about because I listen to that little voice that lives in the pit of m[...]
  • Our Dress Form Christmas Tree

  • Do you have those moments where you feel you may be having a mid-life crisis? Wanting to change it all up? This year our Christmas is different, the man is officially laid off and I've had some personal matters that caused me to not want to crawl in the attic and get our decorations out. I felt chan[...]
  • Are You A Camera Hater? So Was I...

  • I feel like channeling Maria from the Sound of Music (our youngest watches it almost weekly), "Let's start at the beginning. It's a very good place to start..." I purchased my first DSLR a few years back and just wanted nice pictures of my growing kids for the scrapbook. It was a creative outlet for[...]
  • The Dancers at City Dance Theatre

  • I am one who likes to rise to a challenge and not shrink back. They are my own weird games I play with myself. Little did I realize what I was committing to! By far my biggest gig to take on. I had no idea I would take so many photos. Over the course of 4 days I took around 500 photos. Then I had to[...]
  • Woodburn High School Prom

  • When I was in high school I was the looser hanging out under the bleachers smoking, with all my other looser friends. I was at school because I was supposed to get a diploma, that's all. I was quiet and withdrawn. It's no surprise I never went to prom nor had any interest in it. Actually, the night [...]
  • My Current Charity Photography Project

  • Often times I don't think we give ourselves enough credit. Sure you may not be spectacular like so and so. Are you proud of what you HAVE done? The world of photography is very competitive and as a new business I may not be busy with clients all the time (yup, I said it.) It is not a get rich scheme[...]
  • My New Project - Project 52

  • How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, Practice, Practice! Heard that one before? Well, maybe I am not quite going to Carnegie Hall, but I do always want to get better at my craft. Last year I participated in AND finished a 365 project. This is huge! Most faulter and don't make it over the finis[...]
  • Childhood in a Picture

  • Follow my blog with Bloglovin This month the theme was motion. I always find that whatever the theme happens to be, somehow an opportunity presents itself. What better time to take pictures than playing on a merry-go-round! After some hard core pushing from the man and serious laughing with the kid[...]
  • 365 Theme: Storytelling

  • We all yearn for those responsibility free days of childhood, especially these long summer days. I am certainly no acception! I mean, really, who likes to fork over their money to pay a mortgage? Perhaps this is why I adore taking pictures of children. Their awe and wonder at the small things inspir[...]
