sister sister

A visit with my sister is obviously never complete without a photo shoot. During my time back home in Texas, we were busy, and it was HOT, but we managed to squeeze in few minutes to take some shots outside of my sister’s apartment. I really haven’t used my DSLR at all this year, so […]

my new nephew

This summer I became an aunt three times over – but the first time to a boy! I spent the past five days back in Texas with family to meet him, and DANG IT if this little dancing baby isn’t giving me baby fever REAL BAD. He is so happy and healthy and wiggly, and I […]

my favorite film photos from 2014

It has been a while since I used my film camera. In 2014, I shot almost exclusively with it, but when the holidays rolled around I picked my DSLR back up (since I would be taking so many more photos and having the digital files were much easier to share). It’s great to mix things up, and I’m glad […]

a change!

Last week I chopped my hair off! It was a big decision, but I needed a change for a variety of reasons (my hair hasn’t been short for almost 10 years). And with a hair change comes new headshots (welcome to an actor’s life!). I’m waiting to hear back from my representatives which headshots they […]

happy new year!

I hope everyone had a safe and pleasant New Year’s Eve. We opted to stay in with a couple of friends, playing Phase 10, drinking wine, and snacking on white chocolate peppermint pretzels (it was too cold to venture out). We also hung stringed lights up in our living room, which I’m pretty excited about. These […]

Our Christmas trip back home was a whirlwind. After arriving in Houston at noon on the 23rd, we had to almost immediately drive to Austin to visit Whitney’s grandmother and to take my younger niece back home. We did make a (literal) ten minute stop in Old Town Spring to grab some photos of my […]

christmas elf

My grandmother sent my niece a little Christmas dress for her birthday, so naturally we had to have a little Christmas themed shoot. She’s not as enthusiastic about taking pictures as I am, but she humored me for a few minutes to get some shots. It was all by chance that her bow matched the […]

instagram snaps that get a lot of bad flack

It’s no secret that I love Instagram and use it often, but in this social media age, we as a human race have found yet another means by which to attack people (if attack seems too strong a word for you, you may substitute “ridicule”, “judge”, or “condescend”). Yes, I am talking about making fun […]

camping/road trip part one – film photos

We have been busy prepping and going on our 9 day camping/road trip back to Texas these last couple weeks. We wanted to visit Austin in the summer…and have our car…and bring Kipling, so a road trip it was! We broke in our new Subaru and got great use of our camping gear. Kipling is great […]

my love affair with film

A Dodgers vs. Angels baseball game on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Waiting patiently to go for a car ride. Grabbing a picnic lunch at our favorite neighborhood sandwich shop. Springtime. I was only introduced to Black Cherry soda a year ago, but it has become a picnic necessity. A trip to Redondo Beach. This has […]
