So it's been a long time coming, but it's high time I created a blog that matches my website. I've been holding onto "wishful thinking" for more than long enough, so I decided to be consistent and stick with one name:

A new website is in the works as well. I will be posting on this new blog from now on, so please don't forget to change your links!!

I've posted a bunch of photo's from the workshop, so check it out.

Thank You!

Manti is beautiful

A few shots from a wedding I did back in January...

I'm in the process of redesigning my website and blog, so I'm not going to be posting as often in the next little while. But in the meantime, here are some more photo's from Hawaii:

*I have to give David credit for a lot of these beautiful scenic photo's. He's got a good eye.

yes, they're real.

I was playing around with a different lens the other day and finally got this photo of violet's eyelashes that I've been trying to get for months! I really don't know where she got them, but I'm pretty jealous.

more than 10 months old...

Violet has been loads of fun lately. I don't know if it was my long break away from her or what but I can't get enough of her smiles, high pitched girly screams and chunky cheeks these days.

tourist stalker

You might think this is an old woman, but in truth it was a young and very hip Asian girl. There was nothing stopping me from taking a few shots of her amazing outfit. Isn't it great? I was amazed at how she could walk in those shoes there. This was at 'the point', one of the locations from the workshop. I was so close to asking this girl to model for me, but was too shy. So I was stealth and took a couple photo's without asking. creepy, I know.

colors of hawaii

I am going to be posting a lot of Hawaii photos, so I hope it doesn't get old. Here are just a few flowers we enjoyed while there:

and beautiful sunset beach:

Hukilau Cafe

It's taking longer than I had hoped to get my film processed, so in the meantime I'll post photo's from around the island starting at Hukilau Cafe. This is a great place for breakfast and in walking distance of where we stayed. I even tried the spam n' eggs (a local favorite), and it was surprisingly tasty.

the others.

Just to keep you interested while I wait for my film to process from the workshop, here are some snap shots we took from the LOST set (the other's village) that we found while in Hawaii. Maybe this isn't that cool, but we had fun. There was a bunch of people there "scouting" and filming stuff, so we tried to stay out of their way. But then David did this:

and someone spotted what amazing acting potential he had and asked him to be an extra* in the film. I was pretty jealous. Then they asked him to sit in a chair and look bored:

he passed the test. Anyways, some more photo's:

I think those are Juliet's and Ben's houses

I didn't know Ben had a daughter who liked tinkerbell?!

I tried to impress the crew with my acting skills but I just didn't cut it. Maybe it was my blue shorts? Or my disheveled hair... I'm not sure.

here's a guy holding a folder that caught our eyes as we were leaving:

That's about it. After all the work this guy was doing on his cell phone, the new episode better be pretty darn good tonight...

*I guess a lot of you thought I was serious about David being an "extra" and I apologize because I was joking! I thought the cheesy pose would give that away...

we're back!

well, it's been an amazing 10 days.

The workshop was wonderful and so inspiring.

I have about 30 rolls of film to develop and over 600 raw files to edit. Also, somewhat of a tan. yes.
I have a lot of changes to make with the blog and will keep you updated soon. I'll also post photo's from the workshop as soon as I get my film back! I really am giddy about it. nerdy, I know.

Also, seeing Violet was the best present to come home to!

in two days...

we are going to Hawaii and leaving our sweet little girl behind.

this is how I feel:

I know I'm probably more sad than her, but it breaks my heart just thinking about it. (although she'll be in good hands, I assure you... I'm still torn). I haven't been away from her for more than one night since she was born, so this will definitely be a challenge. I admit though, I'm looking forward to a little "r and r" and time with my honey on the sunny beaches of O'ahu. Our main motive in going was this, which I'm pretty excited about.

here's a little Hawaiian treat for you to listen to:

be back in 10 days or so...

9 months

Violet is 9 months old today.

She is getting so big... She spends most of her time drooling, semi-crawling, and climbing on me. She is much more partial to standing than crawling. I think she might be an early walker? We'll see...

took these the other night during bath time. she loves to eat her toys...

winter wonder

inside play

blizzards and low temperatures = lots of inside play time.

Friday, January 25, 2008


I love profiles, silhouettes or anything like so.

Someday I'd like to get this done and hang it in her nursery.

the moon at night

and some other abstract lights that I was experimenting with:

the last couple nights have been so bright with the moon reflecting the snow... so peaceful.
