see that suitcase? i bought it at a garage sale & was DYING to use it on a shoot...then came along Jackie, who happened to have the perfect outfit to go with it! it was a pleasure doing this shoot cuz Jackie had the most amazing outfits...i mean who else would show up with a dress made of glass :) The light also was incredible that afternoon. i luv the shadow play it creates as u can see from the second shot.

I'm afraid i'm a bit behind in the blogging. It's quite a task to keep up with all the social networking :) Anyway, see the gorgeous hydrangea...i cut it fresh from our garden for this special shoot. i was so glad i did ! The family i photographed was SO incredibly nice & down to for the kids- have you ever seen such gorgeous little ones! i've learned over the years that the best pictures are the ones where kids get to be kids...yes, it took me a while. i was the mom who, when mine were little, used to insist on getting that "perfect" shot with the "perfect" smile in the "perfect" outfit. well, live & learn !

Was assisting Shang Chen Photography on an engagement shoot in the evening...I took the first two images without a flash which goes to show that one can find available light sources even when it's pitch black !  The wonderful, blinding light is coming from the construction site. The construction workers may need :)

This was one of the most amazing locations for me as a photographer! The shadow play in all the different corners, the natural light variations, the textures, and shapes. I felt like a little kid at Christmas...and then there's the model. You guys remember Caroline. She was so cool to do a black & white vintage shoot that i was obsessed on doing after watching old movie favorites like Roman Holiday ...

Fun, free spirits, supportive and loving...that's how i'd describe the family. It was a total joy to have a chance to photograph them. I had to put on my running shoes again to keep up with the little one as well as the big ones. It's easy to forget how much energy they have, but it's cool at the same time. Toddlers have their own agenda. Serious things, you being able to catch "the" bubble.
