This month our assignment was to do a portrait in profile. I couldn’t think of a “logical” way to do that, where the image would make sense, so I decided to kind of go in a more “lifestyle” direction with it. And here’s what I got: images of my girl doing one of her favorite […]
I feel so badly to have neglected my blog for so long—life just got ahead of me over the last half of the summer! But there is one more very important event that desperately deserves to be posted, and that is my wonderful in-laws’ 50th anniversary party in Minnesota. Marriage is at once beautifully rewarding […]
I can’t even remember specifically when I last walked across the bridge, and it had been at least 25 years for Tom; Emily has never done it. So when she put it on her Summer Fun list, it seemed perfect! (I made myself use only the 24-70/2.8 II lens the whole time, since I had […]

It had been on my photography bucket list for a long, long time: Get a good shot of fireworks, one with those beautifully clean, lovely trails of light cascading down in the darkness. I was fascinated, but my first few tries were definitely flops! So I decided to write up a post to help others […]
This month I played just with the Sweet 35 in the back yard. The last of the Trader Joe’s peonies were blooming so perfectly that I couldn’t resist shooting just one in my daughter’s hands… Please join me in browsing our little circle to the always lovely work of Sarah!
