It’s a gray day here in Seattle (surprise!) and I needed something tropical. So, I dug up the pics from our trip to Curaçao, the land of turquoise waters and tiny (& $$$$$) beers, last spring and have been gazing at each one with big sighs in between.
Much to the displeasure of several groups of large cows laying in barricade formation, we made our way down the long dirt road to Buena Onda. Since the original goal for our trip had been to surf, we were ecstatic to be nearing the ocean. The color palate we were greeted with was much more [...]
I’ve never been one to feel fear – especially when it comes to traveling. However, suddenly, when I got married I started having a lot of apprehensions. When we started planning our first big trip as a married couple to Nicaragua I did something I’ve never really done before embarking to a new land, research. Googling a foreign country is kind of like googling [...]
The other day, Josh was a startled by a sound coming from outside. I thought he was hearing things – most likely the stove whistling a bit – but Josh waved me over near the kitchen window and there it was, the unmistakable sound of birds chirping. It was then that I realized Spring was [...]
A couple of weeks ago, I was able to get a nice hunk of down time out on the coast with some of my closest peops. I mean, serious down time. What I didn’t do was look at a computer. My cell phone didn’t even have service **GASP**. What we did do was eat amazing [...]
This Fall, I returned to my homeland – New Mexico. The highlights were 1. getting stuck in a cave during a flash flood at Bandalier Park for nearly 2 hours 2. seeing my old neighborhood in Los Alamos jam-packed with HUGE RVs; the lot where we used to play completely covered by a monster house, [...]
Normally, it would drive me crazy not to develop film right away, but it is actually really nice to look through my summer shots now as I’m trying to ignore how frigid it is becomming outside. Anyway, the below images are from a trip to Harstene Island where I tried something new and something old. I usually reach for film that [...]
I have a friend that lives on Kauai and she says she’s never sad to go home after a vacation (I always suffer from the most painful remorse at the end of trips) and now I understand why. Kauai’s north shore, where Josh and I spent our honeymoon, was absolutely the most perfect place I’ve ever been. [...]
Here are a few frames from my very abbreviated trip to Ocean Shores this past weekend. I basically caught a sunset over a beach, a sunrise over a dump, a Sounders game on a TV with bad reception, had some tasty smoked salmon at Mike’s Seafood and headed home to relax.
This past weekend, I traveled to Washington DC to do baby portraits and, as a super added bonus, spend quality time with two of my favorite ladies in the whole world, Heather and Nora. Below is a little peek into what we ladies do when we get together in our Nation’s capital. Note: The teapot pic [...]
