The Beattys

When my husband’s cousin found out we’d be making a stop in Denver during our trip she immediately asked if I could do a session for them to use for Christmas cards.  We decided to meet for dinner near where …

The Garners

While in Virginia visiting my family and picking up my 1955 F-100 we were waylaid with the tunnel closures due to terrorist threats so we decided to check out the historic St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Norfolk.  When my …

Project 12: September

September’s theme was animals, which as a doggie-parent would seem pretty easy, but I wanted to capture something other than my fur-babies who I already have millions of pictures of.  And to add to the challenge, I was set to …

Project 12: August

When I first started Project.12 I was apprehensive about this month’s theme because at the time, we lived in remote Alaska where ‘the mall’ was a grouping of buildings containing a restaurant, bingo hall, hair salons, furniture store and a …

Project 12: July

FIRE! What a powerful word. And it can have many meanings – danger, creation, passion, or the pulling of a trigger. I was planning to use the ‘passion’ aspect of this month’s theme, but then life presented something completely different. …

Project 12: Water

I had lots of ideas for last month’s water theme, but the Alaskan spring just didn’t want to cooperate. So I changed my plan and created a different image. But now that summer has officially arrived there is a wealth …

Project 12: May

Water. That one little word gave me a head full of ideas for images, but the Alaskan spring seemed intent on only offering up that particular element in it’s FROZEN state this month. That’s why it took four attempts to …

Project 12: April

Doors & windows. That shouldn’t be a hard theme right? But it was for me. This month’s theme had me stumped for a while. And then one night as I lay in bed listening to my ‘fur kids’ go out …

Project 12: March

This month’s theme was “Song Lyrics” and right away I knew I wanted to do something for Hotel California because it’s my favorite song. Luckily my husband and I were visiting his mom in San Diego the early part of …

Project 12: February

This month’s theme is “Sweet” which gave me several ideas for photos revolving around Valentines Day, but most of them just didn’t pan out after I accepted a job that required a geographical move, leaving precious little time to plan …

My Family’s Great Alaskan Adventure!

There wasn’t much my family didn’t do or see while they were in Alaska.  We kicked off their adventure with a train ride from Anchorage to Seward with the Alaska Rail Road.  The scenery was AH-MA-ZING, the service top notch …
