Hey peoples...

I am away in Illinois right now. My Grandpa has had dementia for a few years now and just recently he's taken a downward turn. The home health nurse says he has 3-7 more days at this point. I wanted to be here with him and my grandma before he goes Home. A lot of my family is here too; last night when I got into town, my mom, uncle, and one of my cousins were here. A little bit later my other two aunts came as well. It is so nice to have everyone around. 

Anyway...I don't want to write too much...

I just want everyone to know that I will be taking a little break from posting photos on here. I want to be spending time with my family. I have Hillary's 13 week photos that I'll post once I'm back in CO. I will probably miss out on taking week 14 pictures. 

I'm still taking my photo a day, but also won't be posting till I'm back in Colorado and settled down.

Any prayers for my family would be appreciated. My grandma says she's ok, but I know she is very sad and that it is hard to say good-bye even though it's the best thing for grandpa at this point, and we all knew it was coming eventually. Also prayers for my grandpa's children (my mom, an uncle, and 2 aunts). Once again, they know it's time, but it's still hard.

March 19-25 Photo a Day

Week one of my photo-a-day is done! It was strangely difficult! Not really just to take a picture every day, but to take one in just normal life that is at least somewhat interesting or has any sort of artistic value, or any viewing pleasure. It is fun though.

Hillary Week 12

I'm so excited to be documenting Hillary's pregnancy! What I want to get out of this series is just capturing what's going on in Jake and Hillary's life at the time. We started at week 12, so it'll still be a couple weeks before she's really showing.

Hillary and her husband Jake have been shopping for strollers and started thinking about the nursery. She got a little care package in the mail from her dad with some baby stuff so we highlighted some of those items, including the super cute bear slippers her dad picked out.

Jasper and Sirius decided this little lamb would be a perfect dog toy!

What's Happenin'

Hey blog friends,
As of last week, I officially made the switch from doing photography part time, to doing it full time! Because of this switch, I have a lot of openings in my schedule to photograph! So if you need any work done, I'd love to be your photographer.

Also, my new website is up and running... ...check it out and let me know what you think (if you want) :)

I'm going to be posting on my blog more often because I'm working on two projects...

1) a personal project - photo a day
I've seen photographers take this challenge on, which is harder than you may think, and I want to take the challenge. So I'll be posting probably on a weekly basis a photograph that I've taken each day of the week before

2) I'm doing some maternity pictures for a friend of mine. We had our first session this past Saturday. I'll be doing photos each week of her pregnancy so these will be posted on a weekly basis as well.

This Thursday I should have my first maternity pictures posted. Stay tuned!
