I was just checking my webstats and I noticed a new incoming link that I had never seen before so I clicked through to find Snippet & Ink a darling wedding blog that just featured one of my images from Blythe & Ton's wedding a couple of months ago. Go check it out when you have a chance if you need a little wedding inspiration or if you just need to get in the holiday spirit. Enjoy!

After many many requests from fellow photographers, I have finally gotten my act together and have decided to give a series of 2 day seminars on how to build & maintain a successful portrait photography business. Starting in February, my mother, the fabulous Diana Adams and I will be hosting some workshops in DC and LA, with more US cities to be added later. If you want us to come to your city, please leave a comment below. We'll be launching a new website in the next couple of weeks with information on how to sign up so stay tuned to the blog or visit the "for photographers" section of my website to be one of the first people to receive the formal announcement.

One of the best things about living in Hollywood is getting to see lots of movies before they come out and for free! Since Gary is in the Art Director's Guild, we get tons of invitations to screenings and we went to one last night hosted by some of the producers and the art director of a new film called There Will Be Blood. To be honest...this was probably the BEST MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN! Seriously, I came out of it so stunned by how incredible it was that I kept on trying to think of another movie that I love more and I couldn't think of one. Now how often does that happen...maybe once a decade? The only thing I knew about the movie going into it was that it was starring Daniel Day Lewis and I must say that this man absolutely deserves an Academy Award for this

Any of you out there who watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade last week may have seen my kick-ass sister-in-law, Kay Hanley singing on the Care Bears float. I got to watch it on Tivo when I got back from the spa because we didn't have access to a tv that granola, right? It was lovely to be without technology for a couple of days though. I'll leave out the part of the story where we downloaded two episodes of Weeds on iTunes and then watched them on my laptop. :)Anyway, an article Kay wrote about the problems with our healthcare system was just featured on Jill Sobule's blog along with one of the pictures I took of her. Go check it out.

I know I know, you don't have to tell me, I have been a total blog slacker lately so here is my first attempt to catch up. I finally got around to uploading the memory card from my point-and-shoot today so I figured I could just post a few pictures from recent random events in my life. Here I am with (from left to right) Katie, Erin, Mary, Jenny, Payton & Kelly in Puerto Rico Feeding Payton who always passes out when I hold her  My room was WAY down there at the bottom   Last week my Granny came to visit me in LA on her way to Australia to see Nouran, Kirstie & Kai who now live in Sydney. We went to the Warner Brothers lot to have lunch with FZ, a very close friend of the family from Morocco.   I was instructed to take this picture for my Aunt Shabanu
