We hope you all have had a blessed and wonderful holiday season!
I’m including a number of holiday cards featuring some of the stunning shots captured in 2016. Fall in the Midwest lends itself so beautifully to outdoor portraiture, although this past year was an interesting one with such a rainy season!
The cards I’m sharing with you are the custom cards designed for our studio by my daughter, Callie. She has a wonderful design sense (her Dad’s DNA all the way)! If you’re interested in learning more about our holiday card options for your own image in 2017, please contact the studio.
Our Christmas card always seems to get delayed as we are just coming off of our busiest season at the studio, but we wanted to share it with you, as well!
We have had an exciting year embarking on a project that I have been dreaming of for more than 20 years. In May, we began building a small cabin on some property just outside the town I grew up in. Pine River – located 30 miles north of Brainerd – is a sleepy little community surrounded by lakes and a bike trail I love to spend time on.
The cabin’s design was inspired by a small cottage I have admired for years, and as you can see by the photographs, we are still in the process of completion. We’ve been able to tackle much of the work ourselves, and Greg, ever the craftsmen, has used his talents almost every step along the way – roofing, siding, flooring, molding, cabinetry – you name it, and his beautiful mark is on it!
If you find us absent from the studio in the months ahead, you will know exactly where we will be. Our hope is to be enjoying the summer with the interior finished. Will it be our retirement home?? Well, hard to know right now, but having spent much of the summer there this past year, I know we will working “remotely” more often!
Best wishes to your families in 2017!
