Spend the night won't you?

Just trying to make my way to bed...
(make sure sound is on;)
Eddie seemed unfazed by my entrance that evening; this is the drawing I found on the mirror in our bathroom as I awoke
Thank you for making me look so good darling!

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

This one is for you dad...the kindest, most gentle father who quite literally gave the shirt off his back for others. He taught me to laugh with gusto and be happy with the lesser things in life. I miss riding atop of the gigantic pile of tree branches in the back of his old pickup truck and going camping at Leo Carillo amongst so many other things.
He'd sing this made-up ditty for me..

liquid brandy dandy
outshines them all
does anything, goes anywhere
yet won't rip, rain or tear
liquid brandy you're my girl!

As I was perusing the Rose Bowl flea market one sunny Sunday, I met a kindly gentleman who bestowed these amazing antique hand puppets who were worse for wear. I decided to photograph them and they soon became close confidantes revealing their incredible story with me. And now, I share with you dear reader this miniseries titled, Heatstroke.
These portraits are of the infamous melodramatic opera troupe known as Infinito Fantasma, who are eternally devoted to the stage and their craft. They once performed onstage nonstop through the sweltering heat wave of 1896 which left them much changed in appearance but unwavering in their love of showmanship. They continue to perform tragicomedies worldwide until this day.

There's No Other Like Your Mother

Today (and every day for that matter) I honor my red headed angel, my best friend in the entire universe, my mom. Thank you for being my light, my constant beacon of positivity, the sparkle of creativity and inspiration to us all. Should I decide to become a mother, I can only hope to have a pinch of your greatness. 
Love you forever.

Just returned from a sensational week in New Orleans hanging out with new and old friends, swamp and plantation touring, binging on beignets, grits, copious amounts of seafood and music. 
My mind, belly and heart are full.
Thank you to everyone at PhotoNOLA for coordinating such an excellent festival and to all the fantastic reviewers!

"A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know."

While at the Palm Springs Photo Festival earlier this year, I was able to spend some time with the remarkably humorous photo icon, Duane Michals, who's known for his terrific photo-sequences and narratives. 
He gave an assignment to share a secret in photographic form. I used the photo-booth at Ace Hotel and shared more than one secret.

Majestic Maine

Just flew back from the most delicious trip to Maine!
The first part of my journey was bookmaking with a group of beautiful, soulful women led by the marvelous Cig Harvey who shared so much love and knowledge. I am really excited and anxious to put my new skills to work. I will share one of my hand-made books and conceptual promo pieces soon.

My feet and their first encounter with Fall in New England. It was so gorgeous I got teary-eyed as I walked through blankets of various colored leaves and mushrooms!
Strolling along the Eagle Lake Carriage Road & Bridge in Acadia National Park
As expected the trees were stunning.
I visited a thrift store while there and found this great framed piece of a baby crying which I thought would be perfect for my There's No Other Like Your Mother series.
Here's an outtake from that self-portrait session.
I definitely plan on returning next year.

This past May Eddie and I spent our 6 year wedding anniversary exploring London and Paris. It was Eddie's first time traveling abroad and my first time in Paris. After our wedding we went on what we called a "mini-moon" to Palm Springs since we had to hold off on taking our actual honeymoon. With bated breath we finally made the journey. Here are some highlights from this magical trip!

A view from the airplane
One of our first stops, Windsor Castle
 on our way to Stonehenge
pretty amazing about the new discoveries that were just unearthed of 15 previously unknown late Neolithic monuments at Stonehenge, which you can read about on the Smithsonian website
 white horse of dover (shot through the window while driving)
We ventured to the untouched village of Lacock
 the famous blue door from Harry Potter!
beautifully preserved streets of Lacock
Bath Abbey, where there are ladders on either side of the church with Angels ascending into heaven
London Eye
From the gates outside Buckingham Palace
 We walked the gorgeous gothic halls of Westminster Abbey after lighting candles for our loved ones
An awesome street performer!
 We happily stumbled upon a Moomin shop in Covent Garden
And now our journey continues in Paris...
Fontaines de la Concorde in the center of Paris
so many great comic book shops
Gardens of Versailles
 Along the Seine
 a visit to Reims
 Peonies, my favorite flower at an outdoor market in Le Marais
 window reflection
Our first time visiting Notre Dame Cathedral was kind of an emotional one. With the help of this wonderful frenchman, Jean-Pierre, we rescued a pigeon that was literally being trampled and beaten up by some other pigeons. It was definitely one of our most memorable moments.
Jardin des Tuileries
 Our favorite Metro station, Arts et Métiers

In the Louvre
This painting in the Musée d'Orsay was just so incredibly emotive, you have to see it in person to truly appreciate its beauty
 My morning view in the bar at our fabulous Hotel Jules et Jim :)
afternoon doodle and a cup of café crème
Crêpes, oh so many crêpes!
We didn't realize how elated we would be visiting the Eiffel Tower, we had such a romantic experience we returned several times
champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower
Our last day in Paris we woke up early and returned to the Eiffel Tower one last time
au revoir!
