Wishing You a Merry Christmas and a Stellar New Year

Late one Thursday night in October, as we traveled to Grandma’s house, we pulled our car off the road. In between cities, miles from anywhere inhabited, a new moon night, I set up the tripod and a remote. Some kids were asleep and really were not excited about being woken up. It was cold. It was stressful being the mom and the photographer – let’s be honest, I should always hire someone else. After our summer adventure with the solar eclipse, I got this vision in my head of what to do for our annual Christmas Card Photo. While it’s not perfect, that’s ok because neither are we. Here’s wishing you a stellar New Year!


Births of 2017 and Best of 2017

2017 has been a fun & interesting year. We’ve been in our new place for a little over a year now and are feeling settled. While it is nice to have a break, I am slowly working on my business here and it is always definitely fun to see repeat clients. I’ve tried new things like snowshoeing and creme brulee – yes, can you believe I had never had creme brulee until this summer?!?! Me either lol. I’ve found new locations and tried new techniques, met new photographer friends and participated in a group project. I’ve read a handful of books and checked items off my Bucket List/Adventure List. I’m still forming my goals/lists for this year, but there’s some good stuff planned already.

I had the privilege of photographing these three sweet girls’ births this year and also the privilege of creating amazing art for my portrait clients. Can’t wait to see what shakes out of 2018.
