Something new...........


Ah, putting together a new book.  It takes SO long and is very hard to do.  I'm sure many of you creatives know exactly what I am talking about when I say that.  Lots of long hours struggling to make choices and edits - yet when it is done and people get to look at it and you share your work, it is all worth it.

I was thrilled to meet with Joshua a few weeks ago when I was out in Los Angeles.  It was more of a culmination of many back and forth emails, skype visits and phone calls - resulting in a fantastic book and some pretty incredible imagery.  Some of it I was familiar with and some was entirely new and exciting work that sends a chill up your spine.

Can't wait to share and can not wait to meet many of you in person because BOY does it look good.  Congrats Joshua!

Want to see the work?  Give me a call.

Basic to Beautiful


Annoying, yet beautiful too.

Crazy how the world runs sometimes, huh?  Our world and our industry are always seeming to test us, putting something in front of us and we need to figure out the why.  Why is something the way it is?  What is its purpose?  How is it really making a positive impact?

Basically, I have come down to the thought that there are many things in our lives that will try us.  Yet, perseverance in discovery is key.  So, something that initially may not seem beneficial, seems so basic - can offer so much.  Take the time to really understand the why.

Photography can seem very basic, yet there is so much that can be offered by each person, each eye, each approach and each relationship that can offer so much more than originally meets the eye.  A study of the basic can provide so much more.  The group of people that I choose to work with are all like that........we offer the basic and so much more.  More quality, more preparation, more support, more collaboration and more relationships..........we want each project to finish with everyone thinking about what's next.  Peeling away the expected and finding out there is so much more.

Thank you to each and everyone that steps into our lives..........we're looking forward to each day, what's known and what's here AND for what's next!

A Day to Celebrate!!!

  

So, many people would say, a day to celebrate, why??  Well, my response is, why not?

Shouldn't every day be a little bit of a celebration?

There is a Creative Director that I met years ago, when I first moved up to Boston.  I didn't get to work with him very long, but he was one of those people that you just liked.  He was capable, pleasant, had fun and seemed to be the life of the party.  Move forward years and put some distance between my old agency job and this guy, who now works out in the Midwest.  Facebook, yes - that horrible thing called social media, brought us back together.  He posts things that truly help me focus on being a better person.  I welcome his comments and quotes.  He always makes me stop & think and to celebrate each and every day.

His recent post, "Sometimes it's okay if the only thing you did today was breathe" made me stop and say......he's right!  Celebrate today and yesterday and tomorrow, when it comes.......for each day is a gift.  Thank you, Scott O'Leary.

Celebrate today and breathe.

Eat Well. Live Happy.

What's for dinner?


So, what's on deck for dinner?  Something yummy?  Better be.

That's a question that is on everyone's mind each and every day.  Similarly, as Heath is working on our projects each day - he's thinking, "Hmmmmm, how can I make this food look some mouthwatering that you gotta have it right now?"  

It's all about the appetite appeal - the YUM FACTOR!

Heath's studio drives to give each and every client exactly what they want and hopefully just that little bit more, to make everyone exceptionally pleased.  We don't ever want you needing more, we want to give it to you!  And we'll deliver, not to your house though.  Ha!

Eat well.  Live happy.

Joshua............LIVE



Yep.  It's LIVE.

We are excited because Joshua has spent a ton of time pulling together a new site.  It calls for a few minutes of your time and yes, may be partial, but I SO think it is worth it.

Grab a coffee or your favorite libation and peruse.  Fun stuff and an adventure at every turn.  It's pretty much just like Joshua.  Fun. Driven. Passionate. Adventurer.

If you have some feedback.  We're all ears.

Black Inside ~ RASCONA


For years, Rodney Rascona, has devoted a large amount of his time and creative efforts documenting and supporting the United Nations Foundation and other NGO's.  His film, BLACK INSIDE, will be screening at the 4th Global Conference on Women's Health and Well-being.  Quite an honor, for the veteran photographer and director.

We wanted to celebrate this screening and invite you to get involved in support of improvement of women's health and wellness issues.

It's all in the Details.


What a majestic shot!  So many subtleties happening everywhere you look.

Ironic to see this right at this moment in time, as so much of our life seems a bit of a blur.  Yet if we take a moment and really study the details, there is so much more to it.  Don't you think?  I believe that is one of the reasons that I love being a part of the creative process because for all of the hurry up and rush - that often happens, there is a HUGE amount of beauty, just need to peel open the onion and check out the layers.

Creativity is really keeping your mind open, pushing the boundaries, seeing things in a different way, taking risks, checking out all options and sometimes thinking out of the box.  We all could use a little bit more of this in our every day life.  Details are massively important - not just broad sweeping thoughts and approaches.  We need depth and texture, insight and communications, friendship and support.

Joshua and many of the photographers that I work with, strive each day for expanding the boundaries.  Thinking out of the box.  Finding the details and highlighting them appropriately.  Working collaboratively and communicating all along the way.  I am lucky - what a great group of people to work with each and every day.  It's all in the details!
