Guilty As Charged

Ok I admit it. I’m guilty.

I’ve dropped the ball. Fallen down on the job. Neglected my duties.

Where are the images and write-ups about my seniors, you ask?

Well … it’s all Riley’s fault…


On July 11th, at 9:51 pm, I had the most wonderful privilege of being present at the birth of my first grandchild – Riley Martha Schicktanz. Watching her enter this world was an amazing experience, and one that I will never forget.fullsizeoutput_4e6b

Yesterday Riley turned one month old. One month already! How could that be?  Working around my photography schedule, I’m spending as much time as possible with her (in Parker, Co) so that I don’t miss any of the magical moments of her life.IMG_3171

Like holding her in my arms and staring in wonder at the miracle of this tiny little being. I never imagined that I would be so content to spend hours doing just that. And then exclaiming in delight when she wakes for a brief period of bonding eye contact. Her diaper needs changed? I’m right on that! And, of course, I couldn’t wait to photograph her!IMG_3172

Obviously, I’m smitten. Guilty as charged.


But it is senior portrait season, and I’ve had the pleasure of photographing some great – no, make that amazing, seniors. I know you will agree!

I’m super excited to share them with you, starting with Emma – her story to follow in a few days.

In the meantime, thanks for being patient with me while I kiss and snuggle my baby granddaughter!

    Wendy Such a great ‘blog’ on Riley. Of course we are lucky to have seen/held her a week ago and thanks to you, have these adorable pictures. Just think in 17+ years you could be taking her senior picture! Mom
