Quick Blog 02.24.09

Every so often I sit down & try to change the color scheme of my blog & every time I try I can never decide on something I like. Well tonite I kind of came up with something but I need your input.

So if you like the colors or think there is something I should change just let me know.

Kari 02.17.09

So WPPI & Vegas were a lot of fun. I really thought I would have done a lot more shooting than I did but between the trade show, platform classes & trying to find decent food we really did not have much time. On Tuesday though we met with up a bunch of photographers in the main lobby of the MGM Grand for a big shoot set up by Bob & Dawn Davis.
After everyone got ready all the photographers & models went over to New York New York and started shooting.

Check out the rest of the set HERE.

Quick Update 02.15.09

Just quick update...  Monica & I are in Las Vegas for WPPI & right now we are hanging out on the 27th floor of the MGM Grand at the Finao Party.

It's a bad cell phone pic but it's still a sweet view!

If you want to see what we are up to you can follow us on Twitter.

Quick Blog 02.13.09

Well I usually don't talk about things other than photography here but I wanted to post real quick about a vendor that continues to blow my mind.

The company is called Chicago Soy dairy.

They make Temptation Vegan Ice Cream & Teese Vegan Cheese.

So whether you are looking to have them supply Ice Cream for your wedding (like we did!), grab a pint at a local health food store, grab a slice of pizza or make your own cheesy vegan delight at home they are one of the best vegan companies out there. No doubt about it.

Plus they are based in Chicago and we all know how important it is to support your locals.

Hawaii 12.08.08

Well here are the rest of the Hawaii pictures as promised & of course looking at these makes me wish spring was already here. I am really dying to get out on my motorcycle & cruise for hours.

The first set of pictures are from Manoa Falls.

Yes that is bamboo. There are times on the hike where you are completely surrounded by it.

You can see the rest of the Manoa Falls pictures HERE.

After we hiked at Manoa Falls we drove around Oahu not sure of what to do & we stumbled upon Lanai Lookout. It was probably one of my favorite parts of the whole trip.
If you are a fan of LOST you might recognize Lanai Lookout. If you check out this site LOST Virtual Tour they compare clips of the movie to tourist pictures.

You can see the rest of the Lanai Lookout pictures HERE.

Kat & Cody 02.07.09

How weird is it that we will get a foot of snow on Tuesday & on Saturday have 55 degree temps? Well that's the Midwest for you.

Since we had such great weather we met up with Kat & Cody & went to Silver Beach in St. Joe, MI.

The following is quoted from Monica's blog...
We started on the pier which was very slushy and moved out to the shelf ice which can actually be very dangerous & I DO NOT advise venturing out on to. It was not scary at the time because it had not been thawing for more than 2 or 3 days. But in hindsight I cant believe we were so bold. So needless to say I doubt that we will be doing sessions like this regularly, if ever again. It might look solid, but the ice can be hollow sometimes & you can fall through and break yourself! The area we walked on was probably about 15 feet up off the natural sand bottom. I do have to say though that it looks pretty amazing!

Check out the rest of the pictures HERE.
