I've been shooting a portrait of these two every November for the past 16 years. Yesterday we shot these. To watch them grow from 2 and 4 to 17 and 19, check out the Brother's Portraits section of my portfolio.

This year Stewart and I were invited to join some friends at a house they had rented on Lake Iseo in Italy during Christo's installation of The Floating Piers. WOW Airlines was offering great prices on flights, so we decided to stop in Iceland on our way there. We had about five days in each location. The time flew by as we clocked loads of adventures. Here's some of what we saw.
I recently got a Photojojo Iris Macro lens. The rains we so happily received in NorCal this winter have gifted us with a garden overflowing with flowers. That has been my favorite place to play with the macro.
A month ago a friend roped me into joining the SPARK Postcard Exchange. SPARK is a call-and-response group combining artists, writers, and musicians to inspire each other. For the Postcard Exchange we were given one month to create 5 postcards to send to the randomly selected people in our group. I knew none of them and they were from all over the U.S. I decided to mix two of my favorite things and print these new macro photos of the flowers in our garden and then sew them to heavy paper stock to use as postcards. I may need to make more...
In December I was promoted to Director of Graphic Design for FIDM. Along with all the new responsibilities comes the opportunity to get to know LA a little better. I am a Bay Area girl through and through, but I love to travel and get to know new places, so one of my favorite parts of the new position is going to LA monthly for a few days at a time. Here's a little of what I've seen so far.
I've given in. I'm not going to take the time to update my website in Dreamweaver anymore. It's just not as efficient for me as an online web builder. I'm a little afraid of my site looking too much like others built with the same templates, but at the end of the day it's about the work I'm sharing and not the design of the site. This blogging platform will also be a handy way to share updates.
More coming soon!
