I have been feeling truly blessed these days :)
I have reached my goal of 200 fans on my facebook photography page. May seem like a small accomplishment to some, but to me it is a big deal. I am so honored to have the support and love that I do in my life and with photography. Just knowing that I have at least 208 people that like to follow my work from time to time makes me happy!

because of that, I want to pay it forward, I want someone to have a moment of joy like I did when I reached 200 fans.

Give a way time!
I have seen so many of these going on and who doesn't want something free in this economy?! So here is the deal:

Become a fan (or "like") my facebook photography page....(link on the right side of my blog) this scores you your first point. If you are already a fan you get a point also, post something in your fb status or on your blog about this give a way including a link to my blog or fb page gain one more point, refer your friends to "like" my page for TWO more points.

Then either comment on here or go to my facebook page and comment....or send me an email including your name and how many points you have (a max of 4) Points are how many "entries" you will have. I will be selecting a winner (via random number generator) two weeks from today on May 6th. I will then let the winner choose between a $50 gift card to Anthropologie or J Crew =) two of my faves!
I know I say it a lot, but THANKS for checking in from time to time and for all the wonderful comments and emails I receive =)

One of the things I learned in Vegas is that I need to try my best to keep up on this blog. This is something I struggle with....but lately, I am trying to do my best by keeping this blog "sticky" and not only sticky, but diverse. I want to include pieces of me. pieces of my life.

So this is Guinness. Our great dane. He is 6 years old
as of March 17th...born on St Patrick's Day...hence the name.
He is actually really old for his breed. While doing this post I googled "great dane life expectancy" I already knew what I would find...the first link said 6-8 years.

I took this picture yesterday and as I sat and made some tweaks I couldn't get over his salt and peppered face. Once all black with the white nose and strip up his forehead.

He has definitely caused some moments of frustration leaving us thinking "why did we get a great dane" ....see HERE


But ultimately, he has been here since the beginning of us...

Here's to beating the average and praying for a few more years with him!!

Oh my gosh, I have the INTERNET again!!!

I have been without it for about a week and let me tell you...
checking stuff out on my little blackberry is just NOT the same :)

...And I have a million and one things to blog about.

I attended WPPI in Las Vegas in March. I had so much fun and learned a ton, very inspiring and met some AMAZING photographers! I roomed with Jessica Kettle, who I love...ahem ;)
I need to sit and take the time to write about my experience but right now I just want to show some images from a really fun shoot that Julie Parker put together. Check out her blog, she explains the story behind this shoot. Go HERE I was not at the daytime shoot, but I was at the evening shoot and shot all these images without a flash!! It was sooo good to meet you Julie! And you too Brooke, we have to get together again!!





My absolute fave image of the evening...couldn't decide between black and white or vintage




Thanks for looking :)
