Christmas Adventure, 2017

2017 is over and what a year it was!   It was the best of times and the worst of times all swirled up in a fast moving, and unpredictable reveal sequence — except at the very end, on the 2nd day of an 8 day trip to St. George, Utah to see Grandparents over the […]

The Cobbler’s Wife

  I have often thought of my self as a cobbler’s wife, you know, as in, “the cobbler whose children have no shoes.”  But seriously, for a woman who never even got a printed album of wedding pictures, here is an example of how blessed I am, photographically speaking.  Good grief.  He spends a few […]

#NoBanNoWall

It’s Sunday, January 29th, 2017. Yesterday, Donald J. Trump signed executive orders banning immigration from seven predominantly muslim countries in the name of national security. Last night hundreds of travelers were caught in the midst of a nonsensical, poorly executed, and poorly communicated policy shift. Many of these weary international travelers were detained, treated like […]

Ignite Peoria

We attended Ignite Peoria — what a great event!  We participated in pour art, printmaking and soft sculpting and we met many creative tech/art/maker people.  The entire family took a turn making photos of the event. Madeline and Caleb really enjoyed walking around experiencing the scene through the lens of a camera.  Not surprisingly, they are […]

1,381 Miles

We’ve traveled 1, 381 miles to get here.  1,381 miles.  The journey was punctuated with sight seeing stops, bridge closures, bathroom breaks and an occasional opportunity to climb rocks.  Separated from the ABF truck with all of our worldly possessions, we chose to drive at a leisurely pace, a long deserved vacation of sorts.  Road trips […]

A Storm in the Desert

On our farewell Spiral Jetty excursion, Mother Nature pulled out all the stops.  Toward the end of our visit (and after making a few really nice photographs), a rare storm blew in off the Great Salt Lake.  The clouds, sand, salt, rain, lightening and hail punctuated the raw ambivalence of the moment… Best. Jetty. Experience. Yet.

Jeremy “The Yeti” Crocker, Hardcore Autism Parent

Jeremy is a kindred spirit. I photographed this towering man, “The Yeti” (his words) because I deeply resonate with his hardcore passion about advocating for children (and adults) with special needs.  I asked him to write a little about his life and he took the soap box and ran with it.   Jeremy, thank you […]
