look out, world

Recently I asked Laura what she wants to do when she’s a grown-up.

Her answer: “Eat cupcakes. Jump in a bouncy house. And RUN.”

Today she’s 3 years old.

Look out, world…

seaweed salad

My mom came to visit us in Boston last week. We had a great time!

We walked through the MIT and Harvard campuses, explored the Back Bay and shops on Newbury Street, and toured the MFA and MIT museum.

There were a lot of first-time experiences for my mom: Flying solo! Taking the subway! Eating a seaweed salad!

Here are some photos from our adventures:

On July 4th, Dominick and I were hiking up Mt. Cardigan to our AMC high hut base-camp. Even though the scenery was absolutely breathtaking, he was preoccupied. He was worried that his editors would be unhappy with the quality of his work.

Earlier that day, he made some photos of Hillary Clinton at a small town parade. This was no easy task. He was dragged along in a rope lasso with all the other press professionals. Though cumbersome, this method was preferable to the campaign’s original plan: to put all the press in two barricaded pens on the parade route, allowing access at only those two points. A former White House photographer was pushed around by some junior campaign staffer. Another photographer shot parts on his iPhone, because he had better access that way.

Dominick described the assignment as “a matter of millimeters and moments.” That is, if you’re off by a millimeter, in time or distance, you’re not making the right photo.

Despite the difficulty of the assignment, Dominick made some wonderful images. One of them was selected for the front page of the New York Times Sunday paper.

This is an awesome achievement, and I’m so proud of my husband!

As always, you can see more of his work at: reuterphoto.com

oh, shenandoah

Dominick and I had a wonderful time exploring the Shenandoah National Park, celebrating our first wedding anniversary. We also enjoyed the Look3 photography festival in Charlottesville, and both came home inspired and ready to take on new work. Here are some photos from our adventure:

Nothing like a 13-mile hike to bring you together!

Here are just a few photos from our recent Wisconsin trip. The kids sure are getting big! Laura’s current favorite song is “The Wheels on the Bus.” Alyssa is working on crawling with plenty of tummy time.
