I know I've been gone for absolutely ages but after my craziest holiday season yet which included photographing 30 families in 30 days (am I crazy or what?), after a nice little vacay, I am back and back with some New Years resolutions. 1. To embrace social media & contribute to my various blogs more often. When I first started blogging back in 2006, I blogged about everything in my life. I blogged so much that I had nothing interesting to say in person because everyone I knew had already read about my life. Not that I want to be uninteresting in person, but it's all been photos & business lately and I'm resolving to blog about regular life as well. 2. I have given up any and all meat that is not from a humane farm. I have not become a vegetarian. I will still eat meat & fish etc. This

Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. All of you photographers out there know that this is a crazy time of year getting ready for the holiday season. I just got back from the Pictage PartnerCon in New Orleans last night which was an incredibly fun, educational and enlightening time. During the 8 days leading up to it, I photographed 17 families. I know, that sounds psychotic but I'm doing my best to take care of all of the wonderful families who trust me to photograph their families year after year. Most of them want a great image or two to put on their holiday cards and this year I have some new adorable templates from Identity Kitchen for them to choose from. Check 'em out: The deadline to order holiday cards is December 1st so if you're a wedding or portrait client, don't forget to get in touch soon...thank you!

My mother is in town visiting this week so after dragging her to a couple of wild (actually one rather sedate, one wild) Hollywood parties last night, we spent the afternoon prepping for The Modern Portrait workshop which we teach together. It's going to be held at the new loft studio I just got with my good friend Ellen Petty from Identity Kitchen. I'll post some pictures of the space soon as it starts to come together. As promised though, here is the next engagement session on the list. Carin and Perry are a wonderful couple who found me despite the lack of any actual wedding marketing efforts out here in LA. But I was so glad that they found me because we are very much on the same page and their wedding is to take place at a venue that I have been eyeing for a couple of years now,

Happy Holidays to anyone who is still reading! :) I have some exciting news that I've been working with Ellen Petty from Identity Kitchen on overhauling my whole corporate identity and with that is going to come an awesome new blog and hopefully more frequent posting from moi. :) I have been very busy this year shooting weddings in DC, portraits & musicians in LA, and even getting married myself. During the past couple of weeks, I've basically holed myself up to catch up on all of the wedding albums that I owe to clients for 2008 weddings. So today I bring you a sample album that I just finished designing...this one is actually for me but I think it's going to be spectacular! It's a 10"x18" horizontal duo album from Queensberry. For anyone who doesn't know what a duo album is, it's basically a hybrid of the more traditional matted
