Airshow 2017

Well, once again I am WOEFULLY behind on posting photos. However, I have a couple sets edited and ready to post, and one of them is the 2017 Dayton Airshow. This is one of my favorite events of the year, because it’s always amazing to see not only the machines, but also the tricks that the pilots are capable of doing.

Here’s what I got that day!



Independence Day KA-BOOM

Because ‘MURICA! Anyone who knows me understands that I am not super excited about the current state of our country or our leadership – but let’s be honest. If there is fire and explosions and bright colors, I’m all about it. On July 3rd, Dayton puts on a pretty awesome show down at Riverscape. And – this year – it wasn’t raining! So here’s what I got and I’m gonna blow you up (har har) with all of the shots rather than just a few.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!


Mile-High Adventure

So, way back when, I booked an awesome hotel and flights in the hopes that a girl’s weekend would work out to go see Denver, CO. Unfortunately, things fell through. Fortunately, I have a husband who would never turn down the opportunity for a long weekend, child-free, out of state. We planned to make no plans; so much so, in fact, that the only thing I scheduled was a 90-minute couple’s massage. Once we got there, we ended up deciding to rent a car for the day and drive into the Rockies. We spent the entire day there, and the next morning we hit the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and then Red Rocks. Per the norm, here are all of the high-res shots. And, if you’re wondering – yes, I’m wearing a Ren and Stimpy shirt because that’s the kind of classy lady I happen to be.


Sporty Shorty

In the attempt to wear our daughter out, we have signed her up for multiple sports this year. She played soccer for the second year in a row, and started t-ball.  Now, stick with me here, because when I say “played” or “sports”, I’m going to try to give you an accurate mental picture: in your mind, try to see… like… a dozen spastic kittens all chasing an invisible ball of yarn being blown around by a strong and unpredictable breeze. Sometimes these kittens chase the yarn, sometimes they trip over their own paws, sometimes they just wrestle each other or swat at equally invisible butterflies.

It’s hilarious. And adorable. I got a ton of shots of her practices, with the high res set here.


Thanksgiving 2016

I love my family. Deeply, wholly, and forever. So when my brother and SIL initiated a conversation about using Thanksgiving as an opportunity to get out of town for a weekend, everyone included, we jumped at the chance. We all bundled into our cars and met up at Murphin Ridge Inn in West Union, OH. We spent time together, drank and ate all our meals together, and let the kids run wild in the countryside getaway. It was awesome and perfect.  These are my people and I love them greatly. These are some of my best shots, but you can see every one here.
