{happy thanksgiving}

the turkey is in the oven and the baby is napping so i thought i would blog.

on december 31, 2006, kim and noah were married up at gold lake resort. kim wore her grandmother's wedding dress along with other family heirlooms and she was pregnant! to see photos from their wedding, go to my website which noah designed.

avery is now six months old and she smiles non-stop. it is special to continue to photograph your clients as their family grows. however, it is even more special when your client is one of your good friends. thanks for all your support!

p.s. kim works at boulder green building guild or BGBG
in boulder. check it out because it is a great resource.

{it is in the details}

It is the small things that make all the difference. The attention to details makes your wedding, your holiday cards, or your birthday party uniquely yours.

My daughter turned one and I had coasters made by Alli at Bird Dog Press. The were so sweet and added a little something extra special to her day. Of course, I saved a few and I want to frame one for her room. That is just how elegant and beautiful they are - it is a small piece of art. If you want to see more photos from the party, go here.

Alli does everything - wedding invitations, birth announcements, stationary, and holiday cards. If you order your cards through me, you will receive 10% off your entire order. Just mention my name and that you are a client of mine.

{watching him grow}

this is my third time photographing this little guy. it has been so much fun documenting his life and capturing the change. his eyes and little smiles were so sweet. i think he is one of the best dressed little guys i know. check out his stylish outfit so hip at 3 months.


as the holiday season approaches the number of cataloges you receive in you mailbox increases.
If you are tired of receiving so many cataloges check out Green Dimes. It is a service that stops direct mail. You can indicate catalogues you’d like to receive and they take care of removing the rest. Amazing! They also have a petition on their web site to try to instate a “do not mail” list similar to the “do not call” list. Save a tree!
