X-Ambassadors Concert Photos from Red Rocks Denver 2018

X Ambassadors and MisterWives at Red Rocks

I have seen (and photographed) both X Ambassadors and MisterWives on separate occasions before, but these bands were made to play at Red Rocks. Sometimes it's hard to captivate 70 rows of seats soaring up between giant monoliths in the sky, but these guys had…
George Ezra Concert Photos Denver

George Ezra at Denver’s Ogden Theatre

Since my son is a sophomore in high school, I rarely introduce him to new music anymore. Often when I tell him who I am photographing, he is either unimpressed, doesn't like them, or doesn't care. (Teenagers, humph.) But when I said I thought he…

YMCA Estes Park: An Easy Way To Stay Near Rocky Mountain National Park

Note: YMCA of the Rockies provided our weekend stay. All words and photos are mine. I love Estes Park as a destination. There is an adorable downtown area, and it's right at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. I also love YMCA of the…
Cancun Mexico Luxury Resort - Villa Del Palmar

Resort Review: Villa Del Palmar Cancun

We are always up for a good deal and when I got a notification that Villa Del Palmar Cancun was on sale right after the New Year, I couldn't resist a quick trip back down to the ocean. Bryan was banned from our girls-only trip in…

Rumour's Follow - Denver Band

Interview With Rumours Follow – Denver’s Answer to 80’s New Wave

One of my favorite things about photographing concerts in Denver is hanging out with our awesome Colorado bands. I have known the guys from Rumours Follow for a long time now, particularly because they formerly were part of a successful local band called Regret Night,…
The Glorious Sons

Interview With Brett Emmons of The Glorious Sons

The album Young Beauties and Fools by The Glorious Sons hit my radar last year and has been on repeat ever since. It's a full album - meaning it has all kinds of songs but still sounds like it's from one band. These guys play…

Don’t Make Teachers Carry Guns

My son came in and sat down on my bed last night. "Me and my friends have been talking. And we came up with a bunch of reasons why arming teachers is stupid." He proceeded to list off the following reasons teachers should not have…
Women's March Denver 2018 - Photos and Protest Signs

Photos and Signs From Women’s March Denver 2018

It was our second year mobilizing here in Colorado and around the world to protest the Trump presidency. The Women's March Denver 2018 was another massive outpouring of anger and resentment for direction of our country right now. There were a ton of "shithole" references…

Angela Santomera - Blue's Clues & Daniel Tiger - Aimee Giese - Greeblehaus

Preschool Clues – The Parenting Book For A Media Saturated World

I met Angela Santomero about six or seven years ago at a PBS meetup. It was about six months before Daniel Tiger was going to launch, and she was just entering the social media world. We had connected online prior to meeting in person, but…
Guide to Media Literacy for Teens, Seniors and everyone in between.

Media Literacy for Parents, Teens and Seniors

I am not exactly part of the "Sandwich Generation" because I do not care for elderly relatives, but we have been in charge of our parentals' technology for at least a decade... and while our 14-year-old son is starting to compete with our knowledge on the subject,…

Rejection

Rejection

Rejection is one of my hot buttons. ----- I was about eight or nine years old and I was invited over to a friends house, a girl I really liked, and thought was a good friend. When I got there, we'd been playing for about…

Mortified

Bryan has been trying to get me to watch The Mortified Guide on Netflix from the minute it came out. I've resisted, mainly because my childhood was painful and my teens years didn't get much better. Finally, we decided to ease in with the documentary…

Pink Concert Photos Denver - Beautiful Trauma Tour P!NK

P!NK Beautiful Trauma Concert Photos From Denver’s Pepsi Center

Everyone likes P!NK. I mean, how can you not? She is a great singer and a bad-ass chick. I'd always heard she was good in concert but let me correct you on that one. PINK is FUCKING GREAT in concert. I like her music, but…
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) - Concert Photos Denver

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) at Denver’s Ogden Theatre

I was surprised when I told some friends I was finally seeing OMD again, and they didn't know who I meant. You know ... Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark? With some prodding, a few remembered "If You Leave" from Pretty In Pink, but I was shocked…
