Memphis.  My husband trained there last week and I tagged along, as I love to do, to learn a new city. I’m not sure what I expected from Memphis.  I try to arrive at each destination without plans or preconceptions.  But the human mind insists on attaching ideas to things.  I think I was expecting to arrive […]

Sometimes….some times my husband just gets it right. One afternoon I was sitting upstairs, editing pictures and falling deeper and deeper into my foul mood.  My kids appeared at my elbow and told me to get my shoes on and go for a walk with them.  I grumbled and they insisted.  So I put my […]

I feel like I’ve done pretty well in keeping up with this project.  In this segment, we took 2 trips (ie, I lived in my happy place, making it easier for me to share pictures).  Looking through these I notice that all but two are iPhone pictures.  The original intent of this project was for […]

My darling third born son Kieran received Painted Lady caterpillars for his eighth birthday this spring.  They arrived as teeny, spiky little bugs, grew exponentially every day and soon pupated.  A few days later we had butterflies!  And this, my friends, is when life became interesting.  Because our cat Nova is, apparently, obsessed with butterflies. […]

Welcome to my 100 days project! If you’ve been following me for any length of time you know that I get sucked into the vortex in summer and end up blogging it well into MARCH.  I also tend to be perfectionistic and thus paralyzed.  Someone invited people to a 100 days of 10 group and I […]

Check out this beautiful family. I photographed them in their Louisville, CO home shortly before Christmas.  We chose to meet at home because I feel like kids under the age of three do better at home and Mom agreed. This family paid me the best compliment, ever.  When I talked to Mom ahead of time […]

I’ve been sitting on this blog post and not sharing it because the overarching timing of this trip brings up many Feelings. It happened in December and December often comes with some really big, not-fun feelings for me. It was a trip with my husband and we were at a weird spot in our marriage […]

I keep thinking about this trip and being reminded that I never blogged it!  We’ve camped several times at Mueller.  It was, in fact, the first place we took our trailer (look how tiny Bex was back then!!  Awwwwwww!).  Camping at Meuller State Park is a joy: it’s accessible and gorgeous, with a wonderful balance […]

When I talked to Mom before this 12-month session she mentioned that her daughter had recently started saying “NO,” delivered with the most adorable scowl, ever.  She was hoping that I could catch the scowl at our session so she could remember how fun and feisty this stage was.  I showed up, a stranger with […]

I get to see this darling family on Saturday, which made me realize I never shared their Arvada, CO fall photography session! If I could tell you just one thing about this family it would be this:  when I asked them all to look at their favorite person (something I do because usually it makes […]
