Grace’s Newborn Photos

August 8, 2016

In only two days, I am returning to work. And while I am excited to be back in the world of coffee without interruptions, solving business problems, and being around adults who don’t need drool wiped off their mouths… I will miss this little angel. She is the most beautiful happy baby and I love her so much. And not to be able to spend as much time with her is going to seriously bum me out (to say the least). I know she will be cared for well by Grandma (which is a GODSEND). Here is the beauty in her newborn photos…

Reflections from Camp Van Vac

September 8, 2012

Sitting and listening to the breeze, waves, loons, and laughter are just what I was hoping for when I reflecting on our trip to Ely. This past labor day weekend, Breon, Sen and I traveled to Ely to spend our long weekend “camping.”

I use the word camping lightly because we were in a cabin. Cabin 11 to be exact! A very very rustic cabin. No sink, no bathroom, concrete floors, etc. you can see just how rustic it was by watching the video.


Upon our arrival, I was so excited to see how gorgeous the view was from the cabin. Through the windows, there was a beautiful panoramic view of Lake Burntside. It was just breathtaking.

We grabbed a canoe and tested our abilities, we felt comfortable…more on that later.


A long awaited trip to Pebble spa on Sunday morning. Breon bought me a spa package that included foot soak, sinus and head massage, and 60-minute massage. What an awesome boyfriend…I mean come on! 🙂

We spent some more time in Ely before heading back to camp to go fishing/canoeing.

After getting Sen comfortable in the canoe, we put the rest of the gear into the canoe. We heard a few warnings from folks leaving.

“Oh, its windy out there. I turned around!”

“You two will have a time of it getting back.”

But we ventured out anyways. We crossed the big lake with ease…it wasn’t until we came to a cove the we realized there was some serious “windage”.

We tried to keep the nose in the waves but it was just one second of unbalance and we went in. The canoe, sen, and us in the water. After finding that we were all okay, we pulled the canoe onto a random dock and waited.

We were a little nervous heading back. But with good communication, we made it back just fine. But we didn’t fish.


A fun and relaxing day with a walk, swimming, drive up echo trail, and a mini hike in the boundary waters. During the mini-hike we found a really cool mushroom that we were both enthralled over. I think Breon’s photo is the best (seen below)! After a nap, Breon made delicious chicken, potatoes and soup.

Having to leave Tuesday, we spent the morning getting ready. Then we ate at the Taste of Ely. Delicious breakfast in our tummy we went to the Wolf Center. Alas, those silly wolves were napping or so I believe in my mind. Next time, we’ll see ’em!

It was a wonderful trip and just what I needed. I love being near the water and being a couple of steps from it made the trip that much better. Reading, listening, looking, swimming, canoeing (tipping), laughing, relaxing, warming by the fire, and all I hoped. Camp Van Vac…we’ll be back.

Photos: Red Bull Crashed Ice Championship 2012

January 15, 2012

I can’t believe how fast this week/ weekend has gone. I spent Friday night in the freezing Minnesota cold. St. Paul hosted the first ever Red Bull Crashed Ice in the US this past weekend, and I don’t know what took them so long to come here. It was awesome! 🙂

Thanks to my dad, I got a media pass and was able to get some insanely cool shots:

I spent the first half of the event talking to a very kind Finnish woman, named Heidi. She explained the ins and outs of the event. She had been shooting photos for the event since 2008. She was such an asset to have around. She explained how the event worked, and what the heck was going on.

And after I got a decent amount of good shots, I decided to move down so I could be near the finish. You would not believe how packed it was. No one was moving, at all! I was trying to get down but it was a million bodies and no one was moving. Finally I got as close to the fence as I possibly could and made my way to a media area. I must admit, that was an adventure in itself.

Crashed Ice was amazing! I can’t believe what the athletes do and how they can handle falling so hard on ice! EEEK! I don’t know if I could do it.

Shooting Gear:
Canon 7D
75-300 EF 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 III (I wish I could have had something faster)
