My family

I don’t blog about my personal life much, but one of my 2012 goals it to do that more.  Blog readers – meet my family!  I happen to think I have one of the best husbands ever, by the way.  His name is Pete and he is awesome.  From day one when I had this crazy idea that I wanted to be a photographer when I grow up he has done nothing but encourage and support me.  The little doggie in the photo is my best bud Olive.  During the day she keeps me company.  It may sound silly, but for a people person like me – working from home was a huge adjustment and it gets pretty lonely.  Having her around makes it so much better!

Thank you to my friend and amazing 2nd photographer, Karin Newstrom, for taking this photo of us!

2011 was a big growing year for me – on the techie side I’m enjoying learning and and adding lots of off camera flash lighting tricks, grew friendships with my photographer colleagues, continued to find ways to keep more balance in my work and personal life, got myself a treadmill desk, watched ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ for the first time, and made the move to have my very own gallery space in Minneapolis!  I’m excited for what 2012 will bring.  It’s gonna be legen… wait for it… DAIRY!
