Happy Birthday, Paul!

This post has nothing to do with knitting, but everything to do with Loopy! That’s because it’s my husband’s birthday today. He’s the one behind all of the great photos at Loopy. He’s also the best cheerleader, encourager, supporter, coffee deliverer, and husband that I know. I couldn’t do Loopy without him. Happy Birthday, Paul!

When we lived in St. Louis, Paul had a graphic design and sign business, which he sold when we moved out to Colorado. Now he focuses solely on photography (both Loopy’s photography and his own photography business). He sells his photos online, and in a shop in Breckenridge. We have also added a “Colorado” section to our in-store shop, where you can find a few of his canvases, plus his notecards (Alpacas and Colorado Fall), and other fun Colorado things, for all of the out-of-town visitors we get!

Here are a few of my favorites. I like every picture he takes, but I narrowed them to to a few for you!

Thanks for letting me celebrate him publicly. He’s a gem. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Happy Birthday Paul!

    Your photos make all the difference to me when I am picking yarns. The photos are the precise color of each skein in real life. Thank you so very much for all you do to make it real.

  2. Happy Birthday Paul! You’re definitely a very talented photographer and a great person too! I hope you had a wonderful Birthday!

  3. I remember when Paul taught a class at Fling on how to light your photos. It was a great class. I’m always happy when choosing yarn at TLE because I know the color I see is the color I get. Happy Birthday Paul.

  4. Happy Birthday, Paul! It’s lovely to see your work! I really enjoy how much texture there is in your photos, really cool. Hope you keep the celebrating going all week!

  5. what stunning photos from a wonderfully talented, kind and generous man. Hope Paul knows that all TLE fans appreciate his work, and how happy he makes YOU! May your birthday wknd be as amazing as you are!

  6. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL!! Sorry I’m a few days late but I didn’t want to miss wishing you the happiest year ahead and to thank you for all the beautiful images you’ve given us over the years!

    PS – I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sailing picture (above) and would love to be able to get a big one to frame and have in my office! When I look at it a feeling of peace washes over me!

    1. PS – Now I’ve seen “Marina” – the same picture but without the special effects – and I love it even MORE if that’s even possible because I love it to the MOON and Back!!! You are such a great photographer!

  7. I just saw this post, so this is a belated, but no less sincere, Happy Birthday to Paul. And also kudos for your awesome photography! The accuracy of your photos is one of the many reasons that Loopy Ewe is my absolute favorite online knitting website.

    If I could suggest/request another venue for your beautiful photography, it would be for an annual calendar in the same physical format of the one the Loopy Ewe used to sell from Romney Farms (I think). It would fit perfectly in the space I have available and I would love to look at your beautiful photos all year long.

  8. Happy Birthday, Paul.

    I love the note cards and the yarn that your photos inspired.
    Everyone has talent, learning to use it to bless others is fulfillment of the gift.
