Summer is almost here

Posted on June 11, 2018

Once again I’m facing a neglected blog! Spring flew by so now here we are in summer. I was pretty busy this spring… lots of great client shoots

Up first my amazingly talented crochet artist friend from One Dog Woof and I had a wonderful (and chilly) morning on the beautiful campus of Stanford University to get some shots of her latest designs.

Large groups can be intimidating but they don’t have to me. We manage to get everyone in these shots and showing their individual personalities.

This next sweetie is a Jeune Girl regular. I was thrilled to photograph her again… this time with her visiting family.

One group that I’d love to photograph more are high school students. I had so much fun at this session and we really were able to use the surroundings just perfectly.

Spring is Coming!

Posted on March 2, 2018

Time to dust off the camera and get ready for spring!  Rain has FINALLY arrived in the Bay Area…. just in time for my first spring session (we have already rescheduled). Since Christmas I’ve been laying low and helping out at my daughter’s school (being a band mom really can be a full time job if you let it).

I have taken some time in between to get out and stay sharp. Here are some dog photos I’ve taken recently. You may recognize one of the faces as my very own Jeune Dog…. Meille.  The Yorkie is my friend Wendy’s dog, Daphne.

5 Months Later….

Posted on December 5, 2017

…. Let’s pretend that it hasn’t been 5 months since my last post. I’m pretty ashamed of that myself! Being so busy with both sides of my business (photography and crafts) I’ve had no time for my blog.

Maybe in 2018 I will be better at it (I know, I’ve said this before).

Let’s get right to what I’ve been up to in the craft department. My best sellers this year by far have been HATS.

Messy bun hats are really popular and this one is my absolute favorite (mostly because it allowed me to use the pesky leftover bits of yarn from other projects)

Then there are these super cozy hats with HUGE pom poms. Can’t miss seeing anyone in a crowd if they’re wearing one of these!

Customization is available (like, a smaller pom pom! but that’s no fun.)

Elena Shumilova Workshop

Posted on April 26, 2017

For anyone who follows photographers, the name “Elena Shumilova” is very familiar. I started following her work when it exploded over the internet. Her style is incredible. I just love her eye and her ability to tell a story so when I saw that she was coming to my area last year  I was excited…. until I saw that it was SOLD OUT.  Fast forward a few months and I notice she had announced another California workshop so I did not miss my chance a second time so I signed up.

It was a small group of photographers from all over the country and I was actually able to sneak onto the workshop a few days early because they had asked for dogs to be models for the shoot and I knew Meille would be so cute. (I was really flattered to see that Elena chose to personally edit a photo with Meille… this was huge to me). I was even more excited for my own workshop later in the week. The forecast had been calling for rain but there was none and the skies were fantastic.  I can’t wait to use all of the knowledge I gained for my own future photography.

Bay Area Product Photographer

Posted on April 6, 2017

Having connections in this world is the key to success and did I sure luck out last year when, out of the blue, a stranger contacted me about seeing my photography from mutual friends back in NY (where we both used to live). We had a great time doing family photos in Half Moon Bay (a place I keep meaning to go back to see!)

Their photo shoot resulted in some of my favorite family photos ever (here’s one to jog your memory):

Turns out this lady is not only smart…. she’s crazy talented too! Her crochet work inspires me daily and now she’s showing off more and more of her knitting skills too (I think she knows I don’t know how to knit so she knits on purpose to light a fire under me to learn.)

I was so excited when she contacted me again to do a little shoot of some of her wearable items. Normally she takes her own photos (which are actually quite fantastic! She needs to teach me a little bit about how she does her set ups) but this time she decided to let me have a go at it.

We met at a local park near my house (she decided that while she loves the beauty of the Dublin area, she could never do the commute every day) and had a little fun.

You can check out her work here: One Dog Woof

I hope to get to work with her more in the coming months and years.
