They've Hatched!

IMG_3374

A few weeks ago a little Robin laid 4 eggs in the nest she built right above our front door. Yesterday, I noticed one of the little blue eggs broken on the ground. Hoping for the best, I climbed up to take a look in the nest, and sure enough we had four new baby Robin friends! Yay! It's been cool watching mom fly back and forth from the yard with food for them.

M&M Vegas Wedding

M(elissa) & M(atthew) Weinberg finally made it official in Las Vegas on May 15. Since Melissa is my cousin, I took the opportunity to start building myself a little wedding portfolio in hopes to begin booking myself some weddings in the near future. The ceremony was extravagant, as was the reception...everything down to the cake was picture-perfect. Conragts Mr. and Mrs. Weinberg!!

Ginga Band!

20100506_GOAT_DANCE_08

I have been spending some time taking photos for The Laughing Goat's online gallery for their new website. Sometimes, the coffee shop turns into a dance party at night, where local musicians come in a play their grooves. This night, however, the goat might have well been a night club. People were samba-dancing their pa-tooties off.

Ginga Band formed nearly six years ago in Boulder, Colorado, performing a wide variety of Brazilian styles of music. The quartet, comprised of Greg LaLiberte, Francisco Marques, Bill Kopper, and Raoul Rossiter has delved into choro, pagode, bossa nova, samba, Brazilian jazz, samba funk, and other styles. Everyone sings and everyone plays percussion. The topflight musicianship the band displays inspires people to dance, sing with the band, or sit and listen...although not many choose the latter.

Robin Blue

20100518_BIRD_NEST_2web

One windy day in Boulder about a week ago, a little orange-bellied Robin began collecting twigs and twine from our yard and front porch. Merely hours later she had an entire nest created behind the light near our front door. Yesterday, I went outside to check to see if our little Robin friend had laid her eggs yet and sure enough, she had! We are expecting four new babies in about 2 weeks!
