no more messy!

so………….. we’ve been spending our free time last month to get from this monstrosity: (see very scary picture below) to THIS: not to mention the giant load we took to Goodwill, we found lots (and lots and lots) of loose, random newspaper clippings, photos, various award certificates, etc… that had never been put away in an […]

happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I’m a bachelorette for the next week! Ryan is going fishing in Canada with my Dad…. and Ryan has never really fished for even close to this prolonged period of time. He sure had a great time shopping for the gear, though. I just hope he doesn’t shave his sexy beard right away […]

Adam and Mollie’s baby girl bump

It’s an understatement to say I LOVE Adam + Mollie. I was honored to be their wedding photographer many years ago when I first began shooting weddings… I remember how nervous I was! But my jitters were totally put at ease by Mollie’s stunning beauty and this couple’s pure love for each other. Adam used […]

Nancy Burdick - The subjects are so cute and the photos are perfect. What a great way to show Ms. “A” how much she was anticipated and how much she is loved.

good bye, sweet dog

This past Friday we had to make the painful choice to put our sweet black lab, Tyson, to rest. It was so sudden… not at all like Toby’s decline (who passed away last August after 12 years and a heart murmur). He started coughing about  a month ago… not terrible… and not serious enough to […]

Sheri Freeman - We’ve never met, but I see you all the time – we are neighbors from down the street. This story made me burst into tears at work! I’m so sorry! We have noticed your dogs and often think what great behaved kids they were! My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Crystal Wiebe - What a shock. I don’t know if it is better to lose them quickly or over time. But I do know Tyson was a lucky, lucky boy to be so loved by you. Hugs to you, Ryan and Arrow.

PPN balance retreat

every July it seems like we all reach a little bit of a burn-out as photographers. maybe it’s the heat, maybe it’s because everyone is booking for fall and it seems like every last ounce of your free time has been sucked up by your business. well great news! PPN is proud to announce a […]
