Sweet Shot Tuesday

I loved seeing everyone’s photos last week – lots of fireworks, flags, and good ol’ outdoor summer fun. Those will be a blast to look back at when, at least up here in the north, we’ve got 3 feet of snow. (Don’t curse me – you know it’s coming!)

So – some announcements!

The boybarians have requested a “Man vs Wild” theme vacation. Almost two years ago we did a Cars | Route 66 theme vacation. I have no idea what all I’ve gotten myself into but I said yes to camping in the Rockies…

in. a. tent.

Hold me.

But that also means that we’re taking the show on the road!

Randy and I will be available for photo sessions and photo mentoring sessions during the last week+ of July. If you are in or near Cheyenne, Wyoming – Estes Park, Colorado – Boulder / Denver, Colorado – Colorado Springs, CO – or plan to be in that area, we have a limited availability. Please contact me for more information. We are so excited about the gorgeous photo possibilities in these locations.

Would love to meet some of you.

Okay, show me whatcha got!


  1. You will have so much fun! I can’t wait to hear about your adventures 🙂

  2. Wow! Camping in the Rockies! I’m sure you will have a lot of fun and you will come back with hundreds (thousands!) of gorgeous pictures.

  3. OK so sorry for giggling – but I can totally see you having an issue with certain things to do with camping in a tent! I will be praying for you and can’t wait to see your photos from the trip! Try and embrace time together and being surrounded by God’s glorious creation!!!!


    • Go ahead and giggle. While I’m sure it will be beautiful, I have no idea what 5 people in a tent will be like. My plan is to wear them out during the day – myself included – so I don’t notice how uncomfortable it is.

      ps – I am bringing an air mattress. It’s my compromise.

  4. Awesome! come to DC!!! 🙂

    • I’d love that! We want to take the boys to see all the historical landmarkers out east. DC is definitely on the to-do list.

      • I was going to suggest D.C. as well. My husband is great at giving tours of the landmarks and we live north of D.C. in the area of 4 Civil War Battlefields so if you ever decide to come out I volunteer my husband and I as guides. Would love to take a class from you!

  5. I am coming to Iowa to hold you right now.
    Dear sweet heavens. A tent. Oh my. I hurt just thinking about sleeping on the ground. EEEK!

  6. Man vs Wild…sounds like a wild way to spend a vacation, hope you have a great time! Thanks again for the class with Kent, I had fun trying all the night techniques while we were on vacation.


  7. You are a brave woman! But I ya’ll will have a blast!

    How wild *is* the wild in man vs. wild?????


  8. Have a grand adventure!!! :0)
