I met this sweet mom many years ago when we both joined a group to train for the crazy Imogene Race in Colorado- a 17 mile race up and over a big mountain pass between Ouray and Telluride! As you can see here her kids are a bit younger than mine, so she was pushing a stroller while we were training, but I was not! Well come race time, I wish I had been training with a stroller too! We both survived and now she is an awesome neighbor as well. These guys were sweet and smiley and I loved seeing them all! Click here to see these cuties from there last session a few years ago, and see how much they have changed!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the cuteness…

Well it is always fun to get out of town, laugh your head off with friends and be totally inspired about your passion! I was lucky enough to experience this recently in Seattle at the wonderful Click Away Conference. I had the honor of teaching at this conference, about my love of newborn photography, two years ago, and since then I have loved going as a guest and relaxing and soaking it all in! I want to share a few wonderful life lessons that I learned while I was there, and share a few photos of beautiful Seattle!

The coolest thing I learning was from Summer Murdock, an incredible photographer based in Salt Lake City. So I know that you guys all want your kids to be happy, and one way for them to be happy is to find their passions, right? But what Summer added here was so wonderful! I great way to find your passion is to pay attention to anything that sparks your interest. If you find something cool, exciting or interesting, don’t let that go! Pursue it or store it in your head- as this may be your passion! That really stuck with my during and after her talk and I hope that sharing it with you was helpful!

And from the wonderful Yan Palmer, aim low (so you won’t be disappointed) and challenge yourself to let go of guilt for an entire year! Wouldn’t that be an incredible year? I hope this sparks some interest for you!

Here are a few photos from my trip…
