  • Background!!!!  Nothing ruins a photo like a power pole appearing to be someone's new hat.
  • If it's windy (travel to Chicago or San Francisco) have the subject face the wind.

Introducing Photographer Kelli Thomas

I'd like to introduce my friend Kelli Thomas, owner of Kelli Thomas Photography.  Kelli and her husband recently moved to the Phoenix area, and I am pleased to announce that my agency, Celebrations International Travel, will be partnering with her in a number of ways.  

Introducing Kauai Coffee Company

Here's a video tour of Kauai Coffee Company's farm. 

We visited this past December and were amazed at the variety of plants they have.  In addition to coffee, they had greenhouses full of Norfolk Island Pines (perfect for use as little Christmas trees!) and all sorts of native plants as well. 

The self-guided tour is a wonderful walk out on the open land; something we really enjoyed.
