New Glasses

while i was gone in seattle alec's new glasses arrived. i'd gone pre-appointment shopping with him to check out the selection so i kinda new what style he was going for. however, i was still anxious to see what he actually ended up with. the night i got home he showed them to me... they're so cute on him! a cross between buddy holly & superman. maybe even, dare i say, jack nicholson.

i pulled out a flash light and a plastic bag to try out something new i learned. of course i had to use alec as my model. here he is with his new glasses using the flashlight as the light source.



i returned last friday from the anti-workshop in seattle and all i can say is WOW. it was put on by the fabulous photographers the coopers from alt-f and the boutwells from boutwell studio. we learned so much about photography and business in general i'm still digesting all the info. it was great to be surrounded by so many other talented photogrpahers from all over. each day we had some "classroom" time and some shooting time. we even shot with polaroids which is always a favorite for me.

there was so much going on.... bowling, poloroids, parking garages, post alley, piggies, painting with light, ihop, shuttles, photoshop, beer, video lights, pike brewing pub, antiques, seattle underground and more.

on the second day we broke up into groups of 3 and we each had a bride model to shoot. our photo scavenger hunt consisted of 24 different shots to capture in two hours. that was a whirlwind of fun! here's some of our crazy, beautiful model bride, amber.

i'm in seattle today to attend a photography workshop for the week. i've been counting down the days! the photographers teaching the workshop do some amazing cool work so it should be a learning experience. plus i'll be with so many other talented photographers with all kinds of styles. fresh. this won't be a stuffy classroom workshop... it's at a brewery! and from what i hear there's some bowling action going down too!

last year i took some pictures of little juliet with her mom & dad at their home. she was only 2 months old and such a good, cute little baby. and those eyes! this was my one of my first babies to shoot besides my nephew and it was fun. at the time we were about a month out from getting married so things were a little hectic finishing up the last of the planning. i found it to be a welcomed break to stop thinking about the wedding and focus on taking some pictures.

i can't believe she'll be 1 next month... time just flies by. she's on her way to becoming an independent walker any day now. here's some pictures from last year.

on saturday i met up with megan, chris and their new kid, cookie, at the dog park in golden gate park. it was cookie's time to run around being crazy with other dogs burning some energy. i never knew about the dog park... golden gate park always amazes me with all the little gems. like the fly fishing ponds. megan & chris sat back while i got some shots of cookie and the other dogs sniffing butts. afterwards we went to the pig & whistle for a beer, the dog park was really exhausting. on the way out i got some couple shots outside of the pig.

i brought along the fisheye adapter which is always fun.

this was a friendly standoff. cookie would make a move and the cotton ball dog would chase her grabbing onto her tail. it was funny to watch.
