These are the shots I love to share, a combo of both my own and Mike’s. They give a glimpse into our lives that words and stories cannot share. Today was my birthday and where I have been suffering from serious seasonal disorder with symptoms complicated by stress and my own drive to change, today was calm. Like the hush of snow. The laughter over on the next hill. The slient flight of birds. My day was a gift.

Mike I am so blessed to share these moments with you. I think of how many times we are on the trail together, your ability to play, to appreciate the day, scene, moment (even in yet another snowstorm), and I know that you, too, are a gift.

My years with you are filled with magic. Your better than the icing on my 45th birthday cake, baby!

  1. Hello Kim,
    I know you have no idea who I am but I believe your cousin is Jamie Walker (Smith). She said that you are a photographer in the Brighton area and I am getting married fall 2010. I know it’s a little ways away but I am looking for a photographer and wanted to inquire some information from you. If this is not the right person I am sorry to waste your time.
    Thank You,
    Cassie Folts

  2. I live in Marquette, Michigan in the heart of the Upper Peninsula. Way past the Mackinac Bridge, hours north of Brighton. The name you mentioned does not ring a bell. I come from Nixon, and Matthee families.

  3. So glad you had a Happy, Happy Birthday! Sorry i didn’t breeze by in a more timely fashion.
