Fake Problems, State Theatre, St Petersburg, Florida

I went up to St Pete last week to see my son's band play. It was SO dark! I'll never complain about a wedding reception being dark again. This was one of the most difficult photo shoots ever!

This n that

While researching how to put together a blog, I subscribed to a couple of blogs. My favorite is called "Dumb Little Man, Tips for Life". DLM has tips about finances, health, your love life, computers, and photos! From DLM, I learned about Photojojo - which has photo tips, projects and gadgets for sale.

Here are some recent photos from Avant-Garde:

Above are a couple pages from Matt and Katherine's wedding album.

More fairies this month!

I love to personalize family portraits as much as possible. This car is a part of the family!

I needed a headshot for my brochure. Chris photographed me. Geez, I'm getting old. I should have spent more time retouching.
Having a studio is fun! Chris shot my headshot and then I took some funny pictures of Chris and my nephew, Richard.
