Ultimate Photographer's Sourcebook

Heather has ventured out and, along with some incredible ladies and photographers, developed the Ultimate Photographer's Sourcebook.  This is an exciting new phase for Heather and the UPSB is a wealth of information for photographers of all levels.  There are insightful interviews with many of the admired pro photographers in the business along with helpful links to get anyone started in the right direction. This is an amazing book in regards to starting a photography business and learning how to develop your style as well as getting to know your equipment and clientele.

Rêve à Deux ~ Project 52 "Reflections

"Only when the clamor of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the deeper vibration. Listen carefully."
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
This weeks theme of "Reflections" was really a challenge for me.  I have a hazy vision of what I wanted, but just could not get that vision in focus.  Then, in a moment, it all fell incidently into place with this shot of my daughter at play.  Eva's amazing picture of silver and blue, amazingly enough, complimented the tones in my image.  So different in perspective and yet reflective of the same feeling. A thanks to Eva for her inspiration and guidance or I never would have settled on what I was trying to convey.

Welcome little M ~

What a pleasure it was to meet little baby "M" and get a chance to know her mother. She was 10 days old and full of spirit.  It gave me a chance to get back into the swing of shooting newborns - always a challenge. Thank you for your patience  - your joy over your newborn daughter made you radiant! Congratulations to you and your husband.

RÊVE À DEUX ~ a dream for two ~

I am so very proud and honored to be working with the lovely and talented Eva Ricci on a new blog RÊVE À DEUX,  Project 52.  Our collaboration began with the intention of inspiring other and well as ourselves to create new and fresh images over a 52 week timespan. Eva is a fine art photographer with a background in graphic arts. She creates images that speak to one's heart and soul - you will not want to miss viewing her images.  Please join us as we challenge ourselves with new themes every week.  We look forward to seeing what beauty emerges as other kindred spirits contribute.

Happy New Year ~

Heather and I have had a very busy 2010! Her photography prop business, Joco Couture, has rapidly grown while I have been in the throes of helping my husband with his new veterinary clinic. Then there are the kids - all 9 kids - Heather and I have between us. What a crazy year! We are excited to move forward and get back to the art of creating images and capturing beautiful moments. We are thrilled that 2011 is here and wish everyone out there a very HAPPY New Year!
