She’s Got the Moves!

If your back hurts like mine does after looking at these pictures, then you aren’t as flexible as Alexa! Actually, I doubt very many people are! Alexa and her mom, Dyan, were both such down-to-earth nice people and I loved our time together. I was completely drawn into the beautiful lines, agility, athleticism, elegance, and […]

How fun and original for you to be able to do a shoot like this! I loved the centered squat one in the limestone windows- and I couldn’t help but think of little red riding hood at the end. Gorgeous girl and gorgeous poses!!!

Everyone is better then the one before. Great job! I think you are on to something. Seniors.

Wow absolutely beautiful and amazing!! I love the one with her with the red scarf on!!! True talent Mary…and Alexa. 🙂

I have gotten so many verbal compliments about this shoot … even my son-in-law commented on how cool it was. Everyone is saying what a beautiful girl this is and how agile Alexa is. I agree on both accounts!

Lifestyle with Alison

Alison is the librarian at the law firm I work for and we’ve worked together for many years. I love that she stops by my desk many mornings to say hello as we share a bit about our day or weekend. She lives in a cute little apartment up in the foothills with a tiny […]

Great pictures, you look terrific! WTG Alison!


Jessica’s mom gave me a call that her daughter would be in town for a few days and needed some photos taken. It can be a little intimidating for the person in front of the camera to be natural when someone is saying “chin up, chin down, head to the right, head to the left, […]

Lovely photos! What a beautiful lady. 🙂

Oh my Gosh Mary….what a surprise! I love viewing your photos, but never expected to log on and see me. When you can’t hide all that red-hair and freckles…..think of something nice to go with, and you did! Very sweet! Thank you!! ~Redhead - August 10, 2011 - 8:22 PM

So that’s what it takes to get my friend to post her first official comment on my blog. Yippee! I loved them, and you, and your hair, and happy you loved the surprise. I think your hair is gor-geous! Love, the Redhead’s friend.

She is studying Interior Design which thrills me since […]

Dinner and a Hair Cut

My girlfriend, Mary, and I have been thick friends since our junior high days when I lived across the street from North Jr. High and she lived a few blocks away in a different direction. She moved away for 15 years a few years out of high school but that didn’t stop us from keeping in touch with […]
