One More Month

I can't believe Abe and I have already been in LA for three months! Time really does fly when you're surrounded by people you love and doing things you truly enjoy. In about one month, we will return for another season of basketball for Abe and teaching for myself.

Which is why I am determined to get as much photography in as I can here while I have the opportunity to do so in English and while I have willing participants :)

Here's a preview of a friend of mine who is a photographer herself (and is teaching me lots!). She took some pics of Abe and I that I hope to post in the near future so stay tuned!

Hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend!

A Girl and Her Dog

There are many people who have pets and treat them like their own children. As an animal lover myself, I understand that relationship. Which is why I didn't think twice when my college roommate and good friend, Kelly, called me and asked if I could do a photo shoot with her and her dog, Suzy, for Kelly's husband for Father's Day. (What an awesome idea!)


Photobucket



Kelly is one photogenic gal, so I had to get a couple in of just herself:

Ohhh, and did I mention that Suzy isn't just any dog....she's a celebrity. For real! Check out her movie poster from "Hotel for Dogs":


There's a story that goes with how she got to adopt her after the filming of the movie, but you'll have to ask her about it yourself ;)



And Suzy knew how to work the camera...

I told Kelly to think about her husband wearing a speedo for this next pic...love that natural smile ;)

Upon arriving at our second location, Suzy was being a bit of a diva and wanted to stay in her "trailor"...I love this shot!

Kelly continued to work the camera as well...

Nothing can get between this gal and her doggy.

And just for fun:

I'm so happy that I was able to do this shoot! You were both pefect models. I can't wait to see Suzy in another movie, and I'm still waiting for her pawprint.

Hello, Stranger!

Yes, I realize I've neglected my faithful blog once again. Since my last post, I've gone to San Francisco, a baby shower, a wedding, Costa Rica...Oh, and I might finally be having my wedding...busy busy busy!

I've also done some headshots and a couples shoot, which I hope to eventually get up on here. But unfortunately, we've broken TWO of our computers, which means, no editing software til I get them fixed :( (hopefully later this week!)

For now, here's one of my favorite pictures from Costa Rica, which was amazing:

Check back later this week for some fun stuff...
