Focusing on the best years of your life: high school, college, career, and (of course) family.

From Broken Bones to Rolling Stone!

So just to recap – this was how I started 2012 . . .

I crashed.  I broke my leg and got some new titanium parts.  I learned to limp and then to walk.  I was surrounded with love.  I got home, did a lot of rehab, took a deep breath and got back to work.

Now 2013 is busting on the scene and with it some pretty amazing news.   One of my favorite families:  Lexie Hallman and her daughter Mira (whom I have been taking pictures of since her newborn portraits) have had one of their portraits hand-picked by Rolling Stone as a finalist in the My Family Still Rocks contest.  Out of more than 20,000 entries this image from their December session and her story were selected as one of 12 finalists.
