Fabulous Frames

Don't ya just LOVE them??? There is nothing like putting up a favorite image on a wall and having look just perfect.

I want to let all my Blog readers, fellow photographers and photography clients know about a fabulous place to purchase frames. I just received my first one from this wonderful company today and am just in love with it. The frame is heavy duty, high quality, rustic and unique- handmade in the USA. They offer gorgeous vintage and artsy designs in all sorts of colors as well. The company is a husband and wife based team that is located in California.

Check out their site- you may just find a perfect frame! :)

Awarded Work

Today I have a picture of my niece, Melanie, being displayed in Times Square New York as Kodak's Photo of the Day!

Another image of her is the Photo of the Day at Digital Image Cafe today. It has been awhile since the two of us have really worked together and I really have been itching to try some new stuff with her. She will always be my favorite model. Here is the image below:

Right before I went on vacation, this image was also recognized as POTD at Digital Image Cafe: AND.... A few days ago one of my pictures which was recognized as a POTD there made it to third place for the month.

Three of my images have also been recognized at BetterPhoto.com as Finalists for the month of December...

ScrapinWillie's has recently made the below image a Winner this month- I took this in Reno.

Onexposure.net has also published another image of mine:
When the rain settles in...

Thanks to Melanie, Chelsey, Joey, Natasha and Elizabeth... who are wonderful people to work with!

Hello January!!!

I just realized how terrible I have been at Blogging this month. It has been a cold and BUSY month for me. I actually just returned home from a two week trip a couple of days ago. I will try and make up for my lack of posting this month with some extra information in this one. LOL.

Portland, Oregon, was where we started off. We visited Ryan's (my fiance) family for the New Year and did some sightseeing. The area was flooded in many spots and there were mudslides all over the place. BUT, it was so nice to see everyone again- and to meet the newest addition, his tiny niece. It did rain most of the time; in fact, it was raining when I snapped this shot in the gorge. Despite the lack of color and oversaturation this time of year, it is still such a gorgeous and peaceful place to be and I always take the time to visit it whenever I am there.
After a week and a half we headed to Reno, Nevada for an extra long weekend. His mom, brother-in-law and sister flew out a day later and kept us company. I have played Poker since I was 5 years old but for some reason had never taken the time to learn Pia Gow. I observed them all play for about half an hour and then I decided to jump in. I was lucky to hit a straight flush and walk away hundreds of dollars richer. Yay! It's always more fun when you win.

For the first time ever (while on vacation) I took the time to meet up with a local model while in each state. So glad I did. It was a great experience. The first model is from NW Oregon, Mariah, and can be seen on my
Project: Model Blog right now. The second model is from Nevada, Elizabeth, and will be featured in my Project: Model Blog in a couple of weeks.

Besides traveling and working with models, I have started to assemble my new website. It is a more complicated task this time around- and will take about 3-4 weeks to finish. I have some new surprises, projects and stuff to share with you all. I will be thrilled when it is done. Stay tuned.

Oh, and TRY to keep warm everyone !!!! :)
