Happy Movember! Started my day with some SHAVE THE DATE! fun! Head on over to 3rd Street Hair Company and get hooked up with Lyle for your straight razor shaves today and tomorrow! A portion of the proceeds from each shave will be donated to the Movember event to help raise money and awareness for men’s health. Start Movember off right with a fantastic shave – then let that Mo Grow!



Dustin said this was bliss – I was more than a little jealous!  ( I did end up getting a massage later from Christine at A New Day Therapeutic Massage to make up for it though – happy Jen!!!  Thanks Christine – seriously people, call Lyle and get your shave on (or one for your man) then call Christine and get a massage.  You’ll be one happy camper – and can thank me later :) )




Dr. Dustin from Allied Chiropractic starting Movember right!  First shave of the day!


Bryon from H&S Heating and A/C pulled up right was I was packing up – had to grab a few shots of him too!  Looking good guys!


Happy mustache growing! JTP has Movember Gala tickets! Come show off that awesome mustache at the end of the month with some tasty eats, libations, and lots of fun! Looking for more info – check here:

I can’t wait to see all the mustaches!!  Happy Movember!

Smitty – Ruff Start Rescue

Written by Jen on . Posted in Adopt • Rescue, Fur and Feather Friends, The Art of You - Portrait Goodness


How can you not love that face?! Meet Smitty, the gloriously goofy, seriously handsome, lovable Greyhound mix pup my very dear friends are fostering. This boy is a lover and I just had to nab a few portraits of him while he is with them (which I’m sure won’t be for long!) He is such a great boy – whomever his forever family ends up being will be some very lucky people!


For more information about Smitty and how to adopt him, visit (he’s in the puppy category). Adoption totally rocks and I want to thank Ruff Start Rescue for helping awesome pups like Smitty find their forever homes. My little family wouldn’t be what it is today without organizations like theses (shout out to TCHS and MARS from Daisy and Bernard!)


So handsome – love him!  Let’s find his forever home.

Adopt – don’t shop.

I cannot believe its May 31st! This month has just flown by! Classes are wrapping up, commencement ceremonies are rocking, summer MAY finally grace us with its presence – so many things happening at once!

As this month and this school year comes to an end, I have one more awesome group of individuals for the Class of 2013 to recap and share. Check out the lovely ladies and gentlemen of Tech High School!

Such a fun group! I had such a blast with all of my Class of 2013 Seniors! I wish you all the best of luck in the future! Remember: its your life and you can do whatever you want with it. Don’t be afraid to make decisions – and don’t be afraid to make new ones if they don’t work out! You can always change what you want to do and who you want to be. But YOU have to be the change you want to be in the world – so just be sure to DO something :)

Congratulations! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture this part of your lives :)
