Miles + Kim at the zoo

we love us some Miles and Kim, yes we do. A couple of our good friends from K-town. Miles owns his very own [rather successful] roofing company…Versatile Roofing. and Kim does the books. She also loves to design spaces (her dad’s an architect. wonder where she gets her talents?) But together is when they shine. […]

Crystal Wiebe - The zoo pics turned out great! Makes me think of my recent visit there and how much that place has changed since we took Henry Doorly field trips back in school. What a cool couple – you meet so many interesting folks through your lens.

mona - Amazingly fun images! Such great creativity at the zoo and I adore the transition into romantic shots at sunset. Beautiful couple indeed!

chicken boobies and rafters

this phase of the construction is, well, lackluster for me. I know alllll there is to know about finishing a space. The drywall, trim, paint, etc…   but virtual nothing about the structural aspect. So on weekends such as the last, I run the canteen. I make sure there’s lots of yummy food to feed […]

mona - The title totally got my interest and made me laugh! Your studio is progressing by leaps and bounds. So glad I got to see it in person last week. Can’t wait till we are hanging out in your new, perfectly styled studio this winter watching the snow fly!

Michelle - We are planning on being there (as long as Sam doesn’t have a late soccer game that day)…amazingly the t-shirt is PERFECT since we adopted a (mostly) black dog! :)

Amber Grotrian - Love this one & can’t wait to see the rest. The girls are still talking about Stacy’s house. They want to know when they can go back because they miss you already :) Hope you have a great, creative weekend. Love ya!!!!!
P.S. The popcorn was a hit on the way home. Addi ate about half of the bag on her own. It helped with all the sobs from having to leave your house. They both told me to drop them off and leave them with you!! Your a hit in our family!!

what a gas.

Have you ever heard people in old movies say “What a gas!” i’m pretty sure it was slang for “what a riot…that was hilarious!” well, that describes my shoot with Tanner and Sara. Not only did they MEET at a gas station in Farnam for the first time, but because it was gut-ache-from-laughing-too-hard fun photo […]

Dentist appointment this afternoon. Oh, dear. now I’m starting to sound like Steve Martin in The Jerk (one […]
