Lindsey + Andrew

It was a beautiful Saturday morning that I spent shooting photos for Lindsey, Andrew and Dymphna. Who is Dymphna you might ask? Well, she is the pet chicken (yes...I did say chicken). After the initial shock wore off in regards to having a chicken as a pet, I grew very curious about having a pet chicken. I can assure you, Dymphna was super soft, fun, tame, and potty trained...well, sort of potty trained. Lindsey is an excellent seamstress, and sews diapers for her Dymphna. She learned how by purchasing diapers from chickendiapers.com. I didn't know there was such thing as chicken diapers (let alone a website for them) until I met Dymphna! I love it when people bring props and pets to their photo shoot. Though I cannot always guarantee perfect pet portraits, they sure do make the event fun! Lindsey and Andrew, I had a wonderful time walking along the bay with you. And even though we couldn't find your rock, maybe now you can have the "bench" whenever you visit! Enjoy the photos!

Cheers,

The Kubanda Family

We had so much fun goofing off during our photoshoot at the Kubanda House. I photographed Mike and Susan with both their sons, and their girlfriends. Missing from the photos are their daughter and son-in-law living in Ohio.  I thought about photoshopping them in, but decided against it! :) Susan has also been battling a very aggressive form of breast cancer, and received her bi-lateral mastectomy earlier this week. She is up and walking around, and trying to do chores--despite dr.'s orders.  Luckily her sister flew in from Texas to help out over the next few weeks. I was able to photograph Susan's head after all the Chemotherapy, and I think she is still stunningly beautiful even w/o hair! :) I've posted a few of those photos below. Enjoy the Kubandas: Mike, Susan, Gabe and Adoree, Carman and Mandy!

Live at Red Rocks

I just returned home from Atlanta, and since I took absolutley no photos during my visit, I'm posting more photos from my adventures in Vegas. I realized how little I posted about that crazy city. The first day in Vegas, Aaron and I went tooling around in the great outdoors. I was amazed by the landscape at Red Rocks. I studied Geology in school, but realized how much I don't know about the geologic history of Red Rocks! Anyone care to fill me in? While I wait your responses, enjoy some photos of our adventures there!
