It’s been a good year. Actually, it’s been a great year. It’s been incredibly busy and stressful at times but so rewarding. I’ve photographed my heart out, traveled all over, met many new people and friends and learned heaps and heaps. I feel very full at the end of this year and am ready to take on 2015. I will literally be starting fast out of the gate (flying to Seattle on Jan. 4th for a week).
Thank you thank you thank you to all my clients, friends and family for being the best ever.
I am loved.
I am supported.
I am ready. C’mon 2015.
Enjoy this little slideshow I put together of some of my favorite photos from this past year. It was so hard not to share everything. I love it all too much! Haha! Keep an eye out for a few selfies, a sneaky shot that John got of me and vice versa. Muah!
I was the still photographer for the (now award-winning) independent feature film Best Day Ever, about a guy turning 50 and finally finding love. I shot the artwork photo for the DVD cover, posters, etc. and also a bunch of production stills during the shoot. The movie is getting its Los Angeles premiere at Laemmle’s Music Hall in Beverly Hills on December 3rd if you can make it! If not, enjoy these stills from the film and congratulations to all the cast and crew!
Thursday the 26th I headed east to New Mexico, picking up my girlfriend Jillian on the way. She and I have been been on many adventures and this definitely won’t be the last! We decided we wanted to road trip this summer in my husband’s new little convertible, to a place neither of us have been. New Mexico fit the bill. We headed south via Tucson and stayed in an unremarkable town I already forget the name of. The next morning we were delighted to stumble across this grand sculpture!! And when I say stumble I mean I was pulled over for speeding and ended up in a rest stop while the officer gave me a citation. Sheesh. But we did discover this beautiful creature and as luck would have it, the artist was in the process of finishing up some concrete work for this bird’s new home. Apparently he’s traveled all over the state of NM despite his large size. If you look closely at the details you’ll notice he’s created from reclaimed materials, most notably a bazillion tennis shoes, crutches and keyboards!
We stopped briefly in Las Cruces, grabbed a coffee and hit our first little shop. The color! The statues! The DUST!!! It’s a recurring theme for this trip. Copious amounts of dust.
Photos are being edited bit by bit and I will continue to post them as they’re ready. I can’t wait to share more of this amazing adventure!
