Calhoun Labor Day / Ben’s Birthday Celebration

This Labor Day the Calhoun family decided to get together at Mom and Dad’s house for Ben’s 30th birthday party.  The day was simply gorgeous so I ran around chasing the kiddos with my camera 🙂


Chicago + Kelsey

Just some fun memories while in Chicago with Kelsey, Josh, and Jesse 🙂

Cirque du Soleil

Josh and I had the privilege of going to Cirque du Soleil’s Ovo show a couple weeks ago.  We went into the city early to avoid traffic and scout out some fun.  What we found. . . a park perfect for playing Bananagrams, a cute and unique place for some dinner – Bom Bon Cafe, a trendy thrift store holding their semi annual “bag sale,” and, of course, the big event of “Ovo” itself!

Lutsen, Minnesota

A couple weeks ago Josh and I took a trip to Lutsen, MN with my family.  We spend a couple of nights at Eagle Ridge Resort.  We hiked the hills, went alpine sliding down them, ate Sven and Ole’s most delicious pizza, enjoyed an evening along the shores of the cute town of Grand Marais, rode the gondola down the mountain seconds before it was shut down for turbulence, and played an epic set of games of Uno with wine.

With a whirlwind of a trip in Boston I am now home!  Now for the reel of visual evidence of memories made with Nicole.

May 21

My husband Josh and I were up in Milton, WI for our friend Phil Lawton’s wedding so of course we stayed with his parents.  They are on a bathroom remodeling adventure. I did a slightly candid photo shoot of their process in a series of fun-loving and genuine shots of parents I love dearly.

Babies are Beautiful

Christmas time is here!  My husband is in a band, The Least of These, and we consider all of the guys and their families a part of our family.  In that case, two babies entered our family in 2010, Savannah Calhoun and Norah Blascoe.
