Eyes up, heart open

Just a typical Sunday stroll in the park ;)

From the training right up to the actual race, running an ultra marathon is a journey. Let’s take a step back and clarify something. A marathon is 26.2 miles. No longer, no shorter. An ultra marathon is any distance longer than 26.2 miles. Generally distances are 31 (50k,) 50 miles, 100k (62 miles), and 100 miles. There are stage races where you run set distances over the course of three days (i.e. 25, 50, 25), and there are adventure ultras (Not even remotely fun adventures).
If Yogi Berra were to describe an ultra marathon, he would say 90 percent of an Read More

how and when should you hire employees a podcast by carla ten eyck

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Josh Rossi, creator of fulltimephotographer.com a site dedicated to helping and educating photographers looking to go and stay full time. A lot of what I do I used to do myself, until I had enough business to support bringing in a support staff of the most amazing people to help me run my studio like a well oiled bee hive! Many photographers do pretty much everything for their businesses… from taking the pictures, to designing the albums, the website, their branding, managing their studio, booking their clients, shipping Read More

kate + chad + gatsby

“There are all types of love in this world, but never the same love twice.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
All it takes is just one look at these two and it’s clear that Kate and Chad found a very sweet kind of  love.  When Chad catches a glimpse of his lovely little lady, his eyes sparkle like there is no tomorrow. And Kate sparkles back. They are so cute.
Surrounded by their loving friends and family, Kate and Chad wed on a sunny April day, and then partied into the night. Gatsby style.
Special thanks to my Read More

winter tipi

 
i couldn’t be happier to be working with stella and brian this year. they truly are some of the nicest people i’ve met. as soon as i read their questionnaire i was giddy with excitement. they are both so down to earth and love and appreciate artistic expression in all forms. during my chat with stella she talked about their love of cinematography and the feel of Wong Kar Wai movies which she wanted her wedding photography to emulate, and are now on my movie list this winter. i love getting to know what makes my clients hair stand Read More

if green was a feeling

 
jenna and john stole my heart this day. we floated amongst the lily pads with the wind in our hair and went where the day took us. in my opinion, there is no better way to spend an afternoon. jenna and john have hearts of gold, and are deep down good to their bones. not to mention adorable together, with lots of charm and spark to keep things exciting. their wonderful and patient friend AJ, was my boat buddy, guiding us where we needed to go and even gave amazing direction. i think i may hire him to Read More

pat + corie engagement shoot

More often than not, I find myself photographing people that I want to be friends with. Like real-life, let’s share a beer and laugh our butts off  friends.  The second I met Pat and Corie, I knew that they would be so much fun. And then, Corie said “There’s a tree that I really like over there,” and I knew we were kindred spirits.
Pat, Corie, Stephanie and I spent the day hanging out at Loomis Chaffee, a special spot to Corie and then wrapped up our adventure at The Half Door, enjoying that beer that I spoke about earlier.Read More
