Birthday Portraits

My girls just turned 6 and 8 years old respectively.  I *tried* to get them to agree to a portrait session with me, but they weren’t the most cooperative (especially when I wanted them to be in a photo with one another and not the cat).  But I still think they are pretty damn cute.


Who We Become – January 2016

We are posting our December blog for Who We Become, with perspectives from all our members.  My image was taken on film, when we were in Florida for our friends’ wedding.  KAC_2016_01_12_0115

Modern Day Saints – Opening TONIGHT in Capitol Hill

For much of the last year, my dear friend Barbara Trentalange and I have been working on a collaboration.  Barbara is an incredibly talented portrait painter – you can see her work HERE and even learn about how to get a portrait commissioned – and we decided to pay tribute to the community that surrounds us and helps us raise our kids.  Please stop by and visit us at Cupcake Royale in Capitol Hill (111 Pike) between 5 and 10 pm tonight.  The work will be hanging for the next month if you want to check it out.  Thank you also to the lovely write up from the Capitol Hill Blog:



Back to School

Today was a big day around here: Avery started Kindergarten!  Both my girls were cool cucumbers at drop-off.  Avery told ME not to worry, and Alexa headed into school without even saying goodbye!  I am so grateful to have such confident girls.  Here they are and their silly antics before we left for school.
