You will be able to view images larger then ever along with watching slideshows highlighting each session. If you are a registered user please know... we will do our best to make sure your subscription transfers.

i heart bikers... the rest of the story

border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5539677850256932850" />

Hard work and determination rank pretty high in my book and this guy has enough to go around! I really don't know how Andrew keeps such a even balance between training five days a week, cycling at weekend events all season long, volunteering and not to mention pursuing future plans in sports medicine. Wheeew! I'm worn out just writing all that! I was lovin' the direction these sessions took from his stylish-classy-casual look straight to his team bike and gear. A big thanks to Russell Cycle and Fitness for the use of their fabulous vintage bike - I may need to add this to my growing collection. Thank you for such a fun opportunity Mr. Lindner! -Laura

miss paige

We survived sweltering heat, dodged threatening rain all the while swapping stories that summer evening. I loved the chance to see, first hand, the country stables where Paige boards her horse. The rolling farm has become a haven for neglected and unwanted pets as well chickens who look like they are wearing pants! The sun slowly became defused to a soft golden glow - just what we hoped for her session. The sound of Paige's easy laugh complemented her cute western boots paired with cut-offs ... a terrific fit to her personality. I think out shining everything was her sweet smile!

xoxo, Laura

the original DB

From the cityscape backgrounds captured in his first session to the bold colors meeting the urban grit of the courts ... I invite you to catch a glimpse of what I am going to call the original DB. Determination and hard work obviously are a pasted down family trait and Drew is no exception. Working towards future scholastic goals are as high on his priority list as his title of basketball team captain at Notre Dame. Drew has quite a bit of responsibility and he handles it with as much style and grace as he would making a shot on the court. Rock on Mr. Blumenshine!
