Raining Wednesday

As I type this, it’s raining, it’s pouring, I wish I were snoring. I’ve been on heifer duty the past week, which, of course I love. But I’m dragging tail. I was out of my thyroid meds last week, so in addition to not getting but 4-6 hours of sleep each night, I was legitly […]

Family Foto Friday

Occasionally, people call me to take their family photo. And when they do I get all giddy and excited and my mind starts running in 1000 directions, planning what I’ll do and how I’ll have fun with them. Sometimes I meet them, and everything I thought I wanted to do gets thrown out the window. […]

The Portrait of a One-Year Old

It’s fun having family so close — for lots of reasons.  And I’ve somehow managed to become the family photographer. How that ever happened. I don’t know!  This adorable little boy celebrated his first birthday this fall, and I was able to make a portrait or two of him. while I’m late in sharing them, […]

A Pretty Mecate

I seriously don’t know how I missed posting this here.   These. These custom, gorgeous, handmade mecate reins. Sigh. The hackamore was a gift from the Cowboy to me, last year for my birthday. Talk about an awesome birthday gift! It’s kangaroo hide, and it is so soft and shapeable. Doesn’t Dino look gorgeous in […]

Thankful Thursday

I was really bad and skipped last week. I didn’t mean to, it just happened.  Life. Just. Happened.  But this week I’d like to take a minute to tell you what I’m thankful for now. Sunsets. And the fact that I can see them.        And good horses that are dependable and fun to ride:  […]

#MyStory

I had to keep a secret. A really big secret. And it was REALLY hard. But now, the secret has spilled into the national spotlight if you will, so I can now spill it. Which, by the way, I’ve wanted to do for what felt like ages.  On Monday, October 26th,  I was in Los […]

The 2016 SDC Calendar

Once again, I’ve scoured through my images — from years ago, and from the past year — to bring you what I feel are some of the best images taken with the “big” camera over the past year. I know I’ve said in the past that someday I’ll do a “through the ears calendar”, but […]
