Forget all your troubles…

…forget all your cares and go, downtown!

 

 

 

Here are some of our Urban Family Portrait sessions from earlier this year. The streets of downtown Littleton make a wonderful backdrop!

Welcome to the Gypsy Family

It’s easy for me to say that whichever tour appears next on the calendar is the one I’m “most looking forward to.” After all, it’s the here and now. (Not to mention a good way to get students excited about an upcoming workshop.)

But truly and honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I’m anticipating this summer’s Creative Edge Kids Tour more than any previous one. And the reason is simple, my family.

In the past while I was away, my family was only able to join me two a time, never all together at once… Until now! My entire family—two daughters, two sons, and husband—will be joining me on the road for what is sure to be complete chaos and endless laughter.”

As many of you know, I love coming up with a theme for each tour. For the Power of Passion, it was prank wars between my bus and Jerry’s. For the DSLR Video Workshop, it was the whole wild, wild west “If It Moves, Shoot It” cowboy theme.

Because I’ll be joined by my family during Creative Edge Kids—hopping from city to city caravan-style—we’ve decided to go with the Gypsy theme. This idea may very well cause all of us to lose our sanity, but it is sure to be an experience of a lifetime.

A big part of our gypsy-family vacation will be sight-seeing at many of the incredible stops we have scheduled for the tour. In the past we’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel all around the world, but it’ll be so much fun seeing all the amazing places there are right here in our own backyard.

So far we’ve made it out of the beautiful state of Colorado and into New Mexico as we make our way to Phoenix for tomorrow night’s seminar.

Of course, I’m excited for more than just vacationing with my family. I CANNOT wait to get back to teaching my favorite photography subjects: babies, toddlers and young children! Though I’ve had a blast stepping outside my comfort zone this year, dabbling in weddings, boudoir and video, it’s going to an absolute joy returning to what I know best.

The crew and I have been working very hard the past few months in order to provide attendees a truly rewarding and useful seminar experience, and we can’t wait to share it with you!

Good to be back home

Well I guess some rest is better than no rest.

After visiting 15 cities in 20 days, I’ve finally returned home upon wrapping up the DSLR Video Workshop Tour over the weekend in Seattle.

Though I had an unbelievable time exploring the world of fusion photography, I am absolutely thrilled to be back home in sunny Colorado. I hear that it’s been raining quite often here the past few weeks, so I guess the sun was just waiting for me to come back home to show itself (just kidding, of course!).

Hard to believe, but I have only 28 days until heading right back out on the road for my next tour, Creative Edge Kids: Baby Boutique and Kids Couture, which kicks off in Denver June 29.

Now that the crew and I are back home at the studio, we’re taking the day to do some spring cleaning to prep for the upcoming kids tour. Because we’re between tours, right now parts of the studio look like a bomb just went off. (Good thing those areas are well out of sight from clients.) Thankfully, I have my amazing family helping me get things organized!

Speaking of my family, they have decided to become gypsies and join me on out tour for this first time ever this summer! With this being my third tour this year already, words can’t express how excited I am to be able to have them with me.

I’m so excited to spend time with them. With several sight seeing adventures already planned, this is shaping up to be the best tour experience ever!
