Nora is simply adorable.  Sweet and girlish […]

Birthday Mirthday

Yup, it was my birthday.  I had a good one this year – mostly.   First, Didi had to go to the vet.  Partially for her annual checkup but in the past month she got tons of scabby bumps all over her body.  She also has Feline Herpes (which she probably got as a kitten) and […]

Video: Love Is V

I shot this quite a while ago when Eleanor was here for an ASCAP event. I kind of forced some of the shoot but wanted to experiment with shooting video. It’s much different than shooting stills. Especially with the Canon 5D mkii. It’s hard to hold the camera steady if doing handheld, it’s hard to […]

Didi Didi Bo Bidi

Banana Fanna Fo Fidi, Didi! Oh she’s my girl.  My little baby girl.  I love her so much I can’t stand it.  She loves to play and interact face to face and she has a lot of energy.  Yes, she’ll sleep, like a cat does, for hours on end but she has a lot of […]

Nags Head

Well I’m working late and am finally getting the time to talk about my trip (a report is running so that’s why I’m not actually “working” at this moment).   Anyhoo, I went to Nags Head, North Carolina for a week.  Stayed in The Beach House.  Finally. My parents bought this house in the 80′s and […]

Fig Cake

Headshot

Becky asked me if I’d like to take some headshots of her son Chris.   He’s an actor and attends a performing arts high school.  I’ve met Chris before but hadn’t seen him for years.  I think he was like 9 years old when I saw him last.   Well he turned 15 on Sunday, so it’s […]

Almost

Janet is almost there!   Still preggy after all these years.  Well at least months, weeks and days.   Still hanging in there!  She’s absolutley gorgeous.   Really.  Now that she’s relaxed and knows she will have two healthy children she is positively glowing.   I had put on my calendar that tomorrow would be the day she would […]

I Wish I Knew More

Yeah I have a camera and a fancy computer and big ole monitor and stuff and I take pictures but I wish I knew more.   Color settings?  I have no idea.  I got an X-Rite Eye-One Diplay LT monitor calibration tool and calibrated my monitor.   I then edited a ton a photos.   It reminded me to […]
