First Birthday Photo Shoot + A SOAR Kite

Ahh, babies. Their first birthday is a big milestone and there are so many clever and creative photo shoot ideas out there. But look at how stinkin’ cute this one is?!! This is from a lovely customer who recently purchased a SOAR kite. And she says it now has a perfect spot hanging in her […]

Engagement Photo Shoot: Kristine & Dan

Why, oh why have I been woefully behind on posting all the beautiful photos fellow dream beacons have sent me that include uplift artisan kites?!! It’s called life, my friends.

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Wes Anderson

Sometimes, it’s hard to decide what to post for the day. Especially on Saturdays. And Sundays. It doesn’t help that I’m almost overwhelmed by the options of creative goodness. I haven’t missed today’s boat for UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY, though, because it’s only 11:05 pm California time, right? I just came back from seeing Wes […]
