      As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, my friend Tamera and I traded portrait sessions. You can see the photos I took of her and her boyfriend, Pat, HERE. I just realized that I never posted the ones she took of us!

      Mike and I live really close to Red Rock Canyon, and we go there many times a week to hike with the dog. It has become a special place for the three of us, and I now consider hiking there to be my favorite thing to do in my free time. I’m really excited to have photos of us in our favorite spot.

      Thank you so much, Tamera!


      This one is the cover of our Christmas card this year. 🙂


      When we first adopted Ally, she was afraid of heights. Now she is an enthusiastic rock climber.


      Finally Mike snapped a picture of Tamera and me.

      oh, hey, I’ve never noticed you had green in your eyes 🙂

      I love those rocks! There are tons of them in that canyon, and it’s great fun to jump around on them.

      Thanks! That picture really captures us.

      Ha! Good, because I’m not really up for letting you pluck them out.

      Thanks so much!

      That’s very true. That’s why it’s important for people to choose a photographer based on artistic style rather than prices or products. Every photographer sees the world a bit differently.

      Thanks! I keep considering cutting it all off, and then I change my mind. I’m not sure what to do with it at this point.

      That’s nice of you, thank you!

      Re: Love these!

      I love that one, too. Ally wouldn’t sit there for long, but thank goodness Tamera managed to capture it before the dog got restless. 😉

      You should definitely do a trade, too!

      Thanks! Those rock formations are fascinating. They used to lie flat and were covered by water, before the land dried up and the rocks shifted. You can see the swirling indents in the rocks that were caused by waves.

      These pictures are so beautiful, I love them!
      And the rocks! Hahaha! They make me want to relocate!

      good grief I’d kill to have your eyes!

      not like, in a jar. just the same color only on my eyes!

      it’s so interesting to see pictures by others besides you and mike. there is most definitely a stylistic difference and i don’t even know anything about photography!

      I love how long your hair is getting! It looks beautiful! Great photos!!

      those are some mighty beautiful peepers you have there!

      I think number 4 is my fave – of your dog out front and you two holding hands. Sweet!

      I especially love the first one behind the cut. You guys look great!
