The Workshop that Rocked My World

2010 is my year for major growth in my art and in my business. I'm planning on attending 4 workshops this year, and this weekend kicked off the first of those. I spent two looong (but not long enough!) days with Christa Meola ( ) and 18 other lucky, talented, warm, fun-loving souls who also have this passion (obsession?!) for photography.
Christa baptised me into the world of boudoir photography - and I never knew it would be such a par-tay! The energy is amazing for the photographer, and, so I heard, for the model/client. The client comes out of the shoot feeling beautiful, pampered, and in tune with their joie de vivre that all to often gets buried under the day-to-day busy-ness of life as mother, partner, and full-time worker bee.
Energizing. Beautiful. Feminine. A new branch of Esprit is born!
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Who's game?

It's raining newborns...

....but few calmer, sweeter, or more cooperative than little miss "M"! I wish I could have videotaped parts of our session - she could serve as a spokesbaby for newborn models everywhere! Nary a peep (or a poop ; 0 - and you newborn photographers know what I'm talking about !) - easily the quietest I've had in a looooong time. Her amazing parents and super sweet brother were a dream to shoot also - so THANK YOU for a fabulous morning/afternoon, S Family! And enjoy your sneak peek!

Sugar and Spice

Meet little miss "z", all 6lbs, 10ozs of her newborn deliciousness. And just because she's my BFF's baby and I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for her arrival doesn't mean that I'm biased in ANY way! She got her daddy's lips and her mommy's sweet disposition...but fear not, that helping of "spice" will keep her big brothers on their toes once z gets her crawl on!
I am sooooo happy for you guys, you deserve this incredible EASY baby blessing after all you've been thru. And thanks for letting me get my lens on her - she's going to have to get used to it, after all!

Does it get any better

...than this? Looks this good should be illegal. But then again, that would take my photog joy away - so forget about the illegal part. Little baby "K" is the happiest little 3 1/2 month old I've had the pleasure of shooting...which makes it so easy for me! Can't blame her for being happy - she's the light of her parent's lives --and of her grandmother, Babushka, visiting allllll the way from Russia! Enjoy your sneak peek, and thank you for a fabulous morning!
