The Story Of Winter

The Story Of Winter

I love this picture. It’s the story of a perfect Winter day at our house. I love that little “J” is building her snowman just right, while the boys are having a snowball fight in the background. There’s always an inversion in January here in Salt Lake – it gets downright depressing, actually – so it’s nice to beat the cabin fever with a little fun in the snow.

One Of My Favorite Books

One Of My Favorite Books
This is one of the best books on Photography I’ve ever read – and lately, I’ve been reading a lot of them. Even though Joe is one of the best and most published photographers around, he reads like he is one of your best friends. Just down to earth and easy going.
I would give my right arm just to be the girl that gets his coffee in the mornings on his photo shoots. Then I would smile real pretty so he wouldn’t fire me and gather as many little golden nuggets of information as I could. Love him.
It’s worth the read – buy it here.
You can also stock Joe’s blog here. I stock it often.

Learning About That Ski Lift

Learning About That Ski Lift

This is my 4-year old. He learned how to ski last month. This is a little sequence of him getting on the chair lift for the first time.

Whoops! Almost lost him there. But don’t worry, instead of freaking out, I was snapping away using my new lens. 🙂 He stayed extremely calm throughout the whole incident, and as soon as his teacher realized I was calm as well, she just started laughing. Then yelled from the lift, “I can honestly say that was a first!”

New Years In Style

New Years In Style

This is my good friend, Amber. She’s amazing. Seriously. Everything she touches turns to gold. Never mind she’s the hardest working person I know, she’s beautiful, fun, classy, a fabulous designer [designed my logo, in fact] and keeps me motivated to go to the gym every day. She throws a good party, too. What’s not to love about this girl? Here’s a taste of our small New Years Eve dinner party. Eight of our closest friends getting together for a nice, warm, quiet evening and gourmet food.

And just in case the gourmet food, china, hand polished silver, and candles weren’t enough, she personalized each of our table settings with something that represented our year in 2009.

Her hubby was a farmer this year – grew a ton of potatoes and other goodies in their amazing garden. Together, they own a business, and well, Amber loves her white board. 🙂

Joe and Rebecca built a new home this year. A Passive Home, in fact. Click here to check them out.

My hubby can’t get enough Raspberries. I turned 30 and Amber designed a very meaningful, special tattoo for me. 🙂

Dave and Alyce got a gorgeous new dog, Guinness and Alyce can make anything with a little paper, glitter, glue and imagination.

Happy New Year everyone. May happiness and productivity be achieved this year.

This Mom Drives A Harley

This Mom Drives A Harley

I’ve known Jason for almost 10 years – we met when I was a Fine Paper Rep and he was working as a designer at a firm here in SLC. Years later, we ran into each other again at our kids’ school, only to find out our boys were BFF’s. We had so much fun on this shoot, and Kari, man – she just makes me laugh. You should have seen their Christmas Card [designed of course, by Jason]. So amazing.

Hope Your Holidays Were As Fun As Ours

Hope Your Holidays Were As Fun As Ours

These are my two little brothers.
They make everything fun.
For example. They left their canoe in the pond at the cabin this fall, and well, now it’s frozen in.
They call it the Titanic.
Here are their chronicles.
