Christmas in New York City…

After four years, we finally got the chance to go back to my home town for Christmas. We hadn’t been back since Miss B was two, and ten days on the East Coast was jammed packed with family, friends, daytrips and partying! From the Top O’ The Rock at Rockefeller Center, Macy’s, American Girl, Mike and Matt’s apartment in Chelsea, to Toys R’ Us in Times Square, it was a fantastic time! A first for us, we created an itinerary before we left, which, while making the trip very sane, did not leave much room for seeing all my local friends. If we missed you this trip, we’re sorry we did not get together but we sure made the most of it! Next time, for sure!

December Wedding…

The weather nonwithstanding, what a great day. Terrific couple, very friendly catering staff, DJ and location, I wish they could all be like this! Thanks to Ginnie at Persimmon Country Club for your assitance and flexibility!

How My Oregon Story Began…

Our friend Gwen came to visit over the winter holidays and I talked her into doing some studio portraits. She is very special to me because if not for her, I would never have met my wife. Gwen had the permit for the Grand Canyon/Colorado River trip and that’s where she introduced us. She also plays fiddle in a CW band but did not have it with her on this trip. That would have been cool to do some shots with! Miss B wandered in, wearing some costume she’d cooked up and wanted in on the action. So I shot a couple of the two of them together and this one’s my favorite, Gwen and the fruit of her efforts, way back when, on that river trip that changed everything :-)
