You know Spring has sprung when…

You know it’s spring around here when the Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede Pageant arrives. This year, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with two beautiful young women, Amanda Breeding and Brielle Stevens.   Both were poised, smart, and the camera LOOOVED them! I love this program, and how all the girls seem to get […]

Facts and Figures

As I recently announced, I’ve earned my Certified Professional Photographer accreditation.  I knew it was a huge deal to pass the comprehensive certification exam and that extensive portfolio review, but what did the CPP really mean?

Crazy, I tell ya!

Wow, the month of March whizzed by.. I wonder if that counts for “out like a lion”? Spring Conference, and the awards and merits are done until 2013 – now it’s time to prepare for the upcoming Evergreen School of Professional Photography.  Just finished their website (http://www.esppwashington.com) and have some final tweaking to complete. Had […]

Good Dog!

Yesterday, I attended JVH Technical’s DIGITAL PRINTING EXPO in Bellevue.  If you weren’t there, too bad you missed out on this amazing event!   My brain hurts.  OUCH.  I learned a lot about the entire process of printing fine art with today’s amazing new printers and papers. I expect to move my signature pieces over to […]

Off the Radar

Sometimes creative minds fall off the radar for a while… that’s because we’re busy mixing mental paints, and preparing fresh canvases. I’ve been guilty of both, and am excited for what’s coming soon! Portfolio going to the Certified Professional Photographer review – check. Waiting for the Ocean Shores Associated Art Festival’s juried art show (which […]

Merry Christmas!

Yep, I’m proudly one of those who refuse to travel the “Happy Holidays” route. It’s Merry Christmas, it’s Happy Hanakkah/Chanukah, it’s Feliz Navidad! This has been a wonderful year of growth, learning, and excitement. I have made many new friends this year, and deepened the bonds with many I already had. To each and every […]
