Congrats #1….

Stay tuned for a couple more congratulatory notes…..but for now, lets hear it for the new Ryder Cup Captain, Corey Pavin!!!  We are so proud of you, this honor could not have been awarded to a more wonderful guy!  Congrats Corey, Lisa and little Alexis (and of course, Juicy!).

  • jennifer - oh wow congrats, and what great moments captured for them!

  • melinda - I love how you used the flag! Sometimes it can look tacky, but not with you! 🙂

  • admin - Thanks Melinda! I typically would not suggest shots with the flag like this….but the family wanted to commemorate the occasion. Being the Ryder Cup Captain, Corey will be representing the U.S. during the tournament. -Angie

  • Michelle Pentecost - Hey Tess! It’s been a while since I last saw you and I stumbled upon this website and saw you and Ian and your new little Rian. She is gorgeous! I would love to see more pictures of her! My email is if you would like to send me more pictures. I would love to keep in touch!


  • L Maderazo - Hi Tess, great pix and congrats to both of you. In case you don’t remember, my wife, Catherine, was your instructor at ASU and you baby sat for our sons, Leo and Elliot (who are now 11 and 9), a number of times. Leo is in middle school already. I’d love to introduce the boys to Ian if/when there’s an opportunity. They’d be thrilled. Best, Lee Maderazo (
