First item of the evening… we’ve got a winner of the Eden’s Bouquet outfit!
Kinda cool that the first to respond is also the winner huh? Congrats Jocelin! Email me with your address :)
Second item is a model casting call! I have a shoot coming up on April 16th in Portland OR that I will need 6 little girls for. A group of amazing designers has gotten together to collaborate on a line and I *pinch myself* get to shoot it!! If you have a 6 yr old (or any age as long as she wears a slim 6) that is great in front of the camera, can take direction easily & will work well with five other little girls then please email me with a picture & little description. I am definitely looking for a wide range of look, ethnicity, coloring, personality etc. You can get me at email@example.com and in the subject line write ‘small nation’. Thank you!!!
Lastly… wanted to mention that I am lucky enough to have TWO hosts in the San Francisco area in May for my workshop so I get to open it up to twice as many people & offer two different types of days to choose from. We are about half full on both so just email me if you want to get in on those last slots! More info here. firstname.lastname@example.org, subject ‘santa cruz’ or ‘san francisco’ :)
Hope everyone is having a lovely week… I have loved all the FB and comment stories you have shared through the last couple of give aways. You are all truly amazing people and inspire me daily. Thank you… :)
**scroll to the bottom to win an outfit from Eden’s Bouquet!!
My friend Lisa (who created the circus fabulousness here) asked me to photograph a hat for her. I jumped into my client archive to find the perfect little model and instantly thought of this little girly. I haven’t photographed her since she was two and man-oh-man have I been missing out! So I officially moved her from ‘client’ tab to ‘model’ tab and I am thinking you are going to be seeing a lot more of her around ;)

ANNNNND… ANOTHER GIVE AWAY!!! This one is this cuh-ute outfit from Eden’s Bouquet…
Not only is it the shirt & pants… there’s a matching little hat too!
There is a lot of travel on my schedule and I am always looking for a fun, quaint little places to take the kids… so leave a comment with your very favorite place to take your kids or your favorite vacation memory as a child. I’ll pick a random winner on Thursday!!
I have to post tomorrow’s winners a bit early… off on a last minute road trip so things will be quiet here for a bit. I’ll answer emails & all as quickly as I can but please be patient with me… :)
Anne won the lion hat!! & Paige won the adorable Lady Knitster headband… email me with your address guys!! I hope the recipients of your kindness are still basking in the love ;)
And just cause I don’t really know how to post without pictures and I am trying my very best to get through this last session before I leave, I thought I’d share a little sneak peek at my latest session. She is my very favorite red head in the entire world (wouldn’t you just die for this color hair??). She holds a very special place in my heart (can’t believe it’s already been two years since this session…). And I have to show off her sweet & adorable baby sister… ;)

I still have give aways but since I’m off I am thinking I might do them on Twitter or Facebook so keep an eye out ;) And if you’re not my friend on FB… leave me a little note with the friend request. I try to only accept friends that I have friends in common with or recognize as a fellow photographer. Thank you!!! Have a lovely weekend…
I have to say I love playing- jumping into story lines with sets & styling… letting kids be creative, imaginative, wonderful little kids. There is something about an intense portrait that gets me every time though. I love simplicity. I love connection. I love capturing these amazingly intense beautiful faces…
Happy Birthday little one ;)
And yes- I am on a Brendan James kick. He has been on repeat the last couple of days. His positive messages make me smile and feel so appropriate right now in my life. So forgive the bombardment of his lyrics for post titles… can’t help myself ;)
portland | OR
I think the title lyrics say it better than I ever could. I stepped out on this journey- let my heart lead the way, doted on the people that mattered most and somehow sit here looking at a video that I get to hold on to for the rest of my life.
Thank you SO much to the [Framed] Show crew for picking me (& those of you that suggested me to them- I owe ya… BIG) ;) You’ve captured a day in my life in the best way possible.
And now with a silly grin plastered all across my face, I get to share this with you…
PLEASE check out the amazing [Framed] giveaways here!!!!
