They are to be the featured couple in the summer issue of Marriage Magazine.  Today I received the digital version of the magazine, which includes three of my images including the Cover image.  : )  To find out more about Marriage Magazine go to





I’m very happy to have been featured today on Skip Cohen University’s blog giving photographers ideas on how to ” give back ” to their community and abroad.
and… was very pleased when he told me ” I took a look at your sight and you have a lot to be proud of!” : ) That means a lot coming from such an amazing photographer and pillar in the photography community.

I feel bad for all the people in Kansas City that were negatively affected by all of the snow that we had in Feb.  But here on the farm it was a lot of fun.  The first snow dropped about 14″ on us. It was just beautiful and not to cold.   It was the perfect snow to ride a horse in.  Not too slippery and deep enough that it was too much work for  the horse to act up – a good thing for my horses who had not been ridden much the last few months and were feeling spirited.

Because January and February are slow times for the studio I had time to take long walks with my dogs ride my horses and take some images just for myself.  Below are a few of the images – Some of these were taken with my iPhone and some were taken with my Nikon D3.
