I'm working on putting together a collection of 20x40 canvas fine art prints. Here are some of the prints I have so far. :) Large photographs have such greater impact than smaller ones. In a few weeks I will show how they can be displayed in 2's and 3's (also called diptych and triptych). :)

oh my goodness...I am in love with goats. And it's not like my enthusiasm wains the more I am around them...I actually get more excited every time I visit. They each have distinct personalities and are so sweet and curious.
I am so thankful that I get to photograph them.

I am slightly obsessed with bunnies. There are a few in our neighborhood that hop around and I always feel like it's good luck to see one. Kind of makes my day. I mean, come on!...a woodland creature? It doesn't get much better than that.
This bunny is not from our neighborhood, but from a farm nearby that had a small litter of sweet bunnies that will be going to new homes soon. I was thrilled to have the chance to photograph a few of them before that happened. :)

I miss flavored creamer. There. I said it. I know it's not good for me, but I looked forward to it. Every. Single. Day.
I've moved onto unsweetened almond milk.
And it basically sucks.
It's spring break here, which entails me trying to get as much work as I can in between Netflix episodes of Lost and errands and the occasional load of laundry.
Happy Spring everyone!

Let me introduce you to Coco...the sweetest goofiest dog I've met in a long time. She is ginormous and is only 4 months old! I was at their house doing a magazine shoot and had to end our time with a few of this hairy ball of energy. :)

This morning, I opened a fortune cookie, just to see what it said, because sometimes a little magic is good.
this is the fortune I got.
Sounds good to me! :)
I'm gonna take it one step further and say that my creative side is gonna shine forth today too.

This week, I'm taking stock. I'm paying attention to what I pay attention to. I'm listening to where my soul wants to go. I'm not one to plan. Ever. And I'm not sure I will now. However, I do feel the need to see myself in a place that is bigger than where I am now. I don't need change. I need to believe in bigger things. A few years ago, my career was taking off and I think it scared me. I didn't realize it, but I put the brakes on. I felt out of control.
I'm ready to take the next step, wherever that might be. I love what I do...photography, painting, meeting new people...and I'm excited that I feel open to letting my world get bigger.

Still sick. Now I have a cold or something. I'm seriously starting to think that 2013 is not going to be the best year. I'm superstitious when you start a year off poorly. Whatever...I'll just take more zoloft and call it a night. :)
Besides being sick, here's what I've been doing...
Saw this movie with my hubby yesterday. I want to see it again and again and again. It's beautiful and messy and honors all of the broken wonderful things about being human. Loved.
(this poster for the movie I do not love...kind of hate it that they left the eyes in color. It's distracting, no?)
Thank you Traci for turning me onto this show. I don't really watch sitcoms (besides friends reruns, Big Bang Theory, and Modern Family...oh wait, maybe I do watch sitcoms!), but this is so wonderful. I watched the entire season in 3 days so now I'm all caught up and have to wait for the next episode to be on tv.
Loving the Lumineers! and
Of Monsters and Men...both are folky, yet modern, beautiful and sweet.
Watching the Lumineers on SNL brought me to a new level of appreciation for their craft.
Reading this...funny and an easy read.
Also reading this, because I feel about a thousand years old and need to update my style/wardrobe to work with this older body. I had gotten in the habit of throwing on jeans and a graphic T and calling it a day. Nothing wrong with that, but when you work from home and don't have to dress up ever, it's a very short walk to frumpville.
I have also been organizing tax stuff, walking the dog, drinking lots of coffee, and throwing in a few shoots now and then....mostly magazine shoots, which I don't post here, because I never know what I can and can't post (I don't want to post something that will be published until it's published and then by that time, I forget to post it...must work on that. )
Anyhoo, happy Tuesday. It's my favorite day of the week. I hope you have a good one. ;)

Oh boy...it has not been a great start to the year. I'm JUST starting to feel normal. This flu hit me so hard! Blech. So I've been making a million smoothies with spinach and oranges, berries and wheatgrass. I'm also eating more raw food...specifically I'm eating a big salad every day that I prep and have ready for myself (I prep 4 days at a time) in quart size mason jars (an idea I saw on Pinterest). I layer the dressing on the bottom and then sturdy veggies (like carrots) and then layer yummy veggies and beans, ending with romaine or spinach on top. When I'm ready to eat, I just shake and pour onto a plate. This has been super helpful in eating fresh food for lunch.
Today I have yoga, orders, data inputting (getting ready for taxes), and maybe a walk with the dog. I'm craving sunshine. :) Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm sick. Fever, sore throat, and apparently even more spacey than I normally am because it just took me 4 tries to properly spell "sore" (here are my attempts...sour, soar, soor, sowr...seriously!)
the image above is the beginning of the apple cranberry crisp (with fresh orange zest and tons of ground clove) and it is sitting in my fridge and I probably won't eat any of it, which is depressing the hell out of me. I love a good crisp!
Christmas was good...everyone is partly healthy, we all have what we need, and we have each other. did I take ANY pictures on Christmas day? nope. I didn't even capture all the presents under the tree. I also didn't get any christmas cards out this year. (I'm thinking that in 2013, I need to work on them in June.) This is all I've been able to think about while laying on the couch today.
I realize that lamenting over not getting these things done does me no good at all. I would certainly laugh and make light of the situation if someone else were to not take any holiday pictures and not get cards out. Come on, the world is not going to fall apart! But deep inside, taking holiday pictures and getting christmas cards out is on the list of "being a good mom" for me, let alone being a good photographer! Sheesh!
Do you have those types of freaky lists and rules?
I'm thinking that one of my goals for 2013 is going to be to try to be very aware of those rules I give myself, listen to my heart, and make a new list.
