Red Rocks 2010

As some of you know, I love rock climbing and I try to go to Red Rocks, NV every year in the spring to kick off climbing season. This year was an amazing trip yet different than the rest. First off, I had Ayla with so taking pictures and climbing came in second to chasing her but luckily I had great friends to help...namely Liesl who is also a mom and photographer friend and her uncle August. We are so grateful for all of our friends who came and climbed and made it such a great trip! So onto the pics!

Getting ready...

Impact Tip - Creative Pitch

Thanks so much to Jewel for sharing this week's Impact tip info. We love sharing about people in the area who are working hard to make a difference. This one hits me on several and teaching. Of course Art class was always one of my favs and my sister and brother are teachers and they are always short on funds so I sympathize with this need.

Check out this link and see if you can help this organization with items you may be throwing out or recycling. Why not see if your stuff can help make art for kids in need!! As spring approaches, you may be cleaning out drawers and closets and find many of the items in need...can't hurt to check it out!

Molly Grace shoots Candace and Erik's Wedding

I had such a blast getting to know Candace and Erik and their wonderful families! Candi and Erik are devoted Sox fans, so there could be no better place to celebrate their union than their home, US Cellular field. They had such a party, great food, yummy cupcakes and delicious ice-cream sundaes, and of course being in a ball park, hot dogs to top it off! Candace and Erik are now in Hawaii enjoying the sun, soak it up guys, it keeps snowing here.

A little puppy love! xoxo


I love this moment at the church, her sister, Dad and Aunt watching the ceremony.

A moment in the limo

No strike outs in this ball game.


Candace's dad had the party on their feet as he and his band rocked on.
