our trip to Iceland

Earlier this year I asked my husband what he wanted to do for his big 40th Birthday in August. I expected he’d say… let’s go to Vail for the weekend or maybe New York… but he answered “we should go to Iceland!” We had just gotten vaccinated and were hopeful travel would be ‘normal’ by...

life right now [july]

currently… making a custom video from our trip to visit my parents at their cabin in Wisconsin. shopping for school supplies. I can’t believe the kids are going back to school in just 2 weeks! wrapping up the final week of my summer break. I’ll begin client work and calls again next week. loving this new outdoor...

life right now [june]

currently… enjoying summer break. Taking June and July off of client work was a great decision for me + my family. spending lots of time at the water park. They have a new 2 hour reservation system because of Covid and it is my favorite thing ever: no crowds, lots of parking, easy to get a...

life right now [may]

currently… finishing the school year. How is it over already? (Did it ever start? 😂) wrapping up all my projects so I can take June + July off from client work! reading Deacon King Kong. listening to Girl, Woman, Other on audiobook. watching Mare of Easttown on Hulu. setting up a new (to us) treadmill. It’s...

life right now [April]

currently… finishing a big client scanning + conversion project (pictured above)! This client boxed up her grandfather’s basement (photos, slides, video tapes, etc) and the digital files will be shared with his family of 100+! using a new ring light. My previous one took up a lot of space. As you can see in the...

life right now [march]

currently… celebrating Colby’s 12th birthday! He still gets mistaken for a new puppy and it makes me hopeful we will have many more years together. reading Cilka’s Journey. (I thought the Tattooist of Auschwitz was good so I hope this is too). listening to the new Simplified podcast. I’m excited to see where this goes (I think...

life right now [February]

currently… wrapping up the basement construction in the next week. It’ll be so nice to have a play space for the kids to get us through the rest of the winter. enjoying more balance in my workload now that the kids have been back to school in-person for a month. It’s been nice to NOT work...

life right now [January]

currently… spending lots of time in my office. John moved into his own office and the kids have returned to in-person learning so aside from a brief visit from a little ‘helper’ (pictured above), my office is quiet. loving this adorable matching pajama set I got Jill and her baby (she’s obsessed with it!) playing lots...

life right now [December]

currently… recovering from Christmas. My parents drove in from WI and stayed with us for a few days which was nice (my Mom hadn’t been here since last December!) skiing! Reservations are required this year because of COVID, but we got time at Breckenridge, Keystone and Beaver Creek during the holiday break. Life feels *almost* normal...

this year’s favorite reads [2020]

This is my EIGTH year making my book recommendation or ‘favorite reads’ list. This year’s list is a good mix of fiction and non-fiction. MY BOOK RECOMMENDATION LIST Here we go… the best books I read in 2020! Proof of Heaven. A neurosurgeon shares his experience with a near death experience during which he visited...

life right now [november]

currently… preparing for virtual school again. We have this week off for Thanksgiving but we won’t be returning to in-person learning until January (hopefully). looking forward to a really simple Thanksgiving- only our household. The thought of cooking the whole meal was stressing me out so I ordered a Thanksgiving Meal from Whole Foods. I’ll prep a...

Colin is Eight!

Colin, You are eight years old!  You’re such a special kid. You’re smarter than most adults I know. Your ability to work out math equations: when asked to ‘show your work’ you wrote “I used my brain”… hah! And still, the way you remember numbers: what was the score of the Cardinals game last weekend? You know...

Make a 2021 Photo Calendar!

Photo calendars make a great gift so, as I’ve done for the 5 years, I created a FREE calendar template that you can print to make your own photo calendar using the Project Life App.  It’s SUPER easy… no design skills required! HOW TO MAKE A PHOTO CALENDAR USING THE PROJECT LIFE APP 1.  Pick...

life right now [october]

currently… enjoying an early snow fall. The kids got a real snow day on Monday (I didn’t think that would happen now that virtual learning exists!) and we needed this snow up in the mountains to help with the wildfires. feeling really nervous about the election. No matter which way the vote goes, I think the...

Jill is six!

Jill, You are six years old, baby girl!  This year brought a big milestone- KINDERGARTEN. For a year you’ve been saying you don’t want to go to Kindergarten and that you’re afraid of going to school for a full-day. I knew the transition was going to be hard (no matter what I said to reassure you)...

life right now [September]

currently… getting all kinds of work done now that my kids are going to school in-person. feeling grateful for the additional work time. For over 7 years I have only had 3 kid-free hours to work everyday so doubling that feels like an enormous gift (no more late nights)! planning for Jill’s 6th birthday. Instead of...

life right now [august]

currently… going to school virtually. Oof, it’s a lot. In my house on Day 1 we missed an entire 2nd grade zoom call, turned in the assignment 2.5 hours late, and had a Kindergartner lay on the floor under her desk for an entire virtual music class. feeling overwhelmed. I really hope in-person school happens this...

Our Hawaii Trip + Video Tips!

Our trip to Hawaii definitely didn’t look like we expected it to (we booked this in February 2020 with NO idea how the world was about to change)!  Back then, if you told me that in order to fly to Hawaii, the whole family would have to spit in cups- WHILE ON ZOOM with the...

How to document a trip with VIDEO!

At the start of this year, we went on a family ski trip to Lake Tahoe. I decided to document the trip in a new fashion… with VIDEO (after spending 10 years as a professional photographer, this was new territory for me). The result was SO MUCH FUN. The kids loved it. The Grandmas loved...

HI, I’M MISS FREDDY.

 

Actually, my name is Casey. As a newborn I resembled Fred Flintstone so my parents nicknamed me Freddy and it stuck. I am a professional photo organizer (yes, that's a thing!) who helps people all over the world make sense of their photo mess through organizing services and self-paced online courses.

 

I want to help you ENJOY your photos again!
