Published, Spring 2016 Where Women Create

My favorite magazine, 
Where Women Create, 
has a wonderfully inspiring column called 
"The Art of Organization". 
It's where artists share their tips and tricks 
for storing and organizing all of those 
tantalizing bits and baubles 
that fuel their creativity.

It was my privilege to photograph 
the studio of my wildly talented friend 
 Chris Berger in the new Spring issue!

Chris works in so many mediums, 
making her a natural for sharing her
uncanny gift of keeping all her pretties 
stored and at the ready. 

Her collection of vintage hatboxes 
house delicate millinery flowers...

  And embellished cards of 
every shape and size.

A sweet array of vintage bottles  
provide not only easy access, but allow Chris 
to visualize just the perfect touch for one of 
her stunning altered lingerie creations.

Speaking of....




Corsets, bras, undergarments have never 
looked so sublime. 
Victoria's Secret's got nuthin' on Chris.

Need storage for your art papers?
Not a problem, howzabout a vintage dish rack?

Clever gal, my friend Chris. 
And truly one of the most gifted, generous-hearted 
people I know. 

Only a couple of weeks after shooting this feature, 
Chris's sweet husband and our good friend Keith 
passed away suddenly. 
He was smart as a whip, hilarious,
and missed by all who were fortunate enough 
to know and love him.  

Keith, this one was for you.

Sneak Peek...Where Women Create

That's just a teensy corner of my friend 
Chris Berger's studio in the Spring 2016 issue of 
Where Women Create Magazine.

I was blessed to be given the opportunity 
to shoot her studio for the WWC column,
"The Art of Organization", 
and it will be my pleasure to 
share more of Chris's studio later this week. 

Yeppers, my monthly blog post, 
how the time flies, eh? ;-)

New Year, New Focus

Everything you see in the above photo? 

Smile Bigger. 
Love Longer. 
Hug Harder. 
Laugh Louder. 

That's it for me, my goals for 2016.
Nothing terribly specific as far as 
New Year's resolutions go, 
but a very specific path 
has been chosen to achive this. 

It's called slowing down and refocusing. 
Taking a deep breath and recognizing 
that family and faith take a front seat, 
and all that other stuff is just that.... 

I'm pretty excited to be taking 
the first few months of 2016 
off from all my 
photography related work. 
Emphasis on WORK. 
I'm not putting down my camera, 
just putting the biz on the back burner for now. 

Heck, it might even feel so good 
that I won't resume until Summer. 
I mean, if something comes along 
that absolutely rocks my world 
and is life-changing, then I reserve the right 
to accept the occasional photo shoot.

I still have a couple of fun shoots completed  
last year for the Where Women Create 
family of magazines to share soon, 
so you will be hearing from me as I 
happily share my photos of these 
utterly amazing women. 

And maybe I'll share some "just for fun, just for me" 
photos. The kind of stuff I used to get really 
jazzed about doing before I went pro 
with my photography. 

But for now? 
It's all about smiling, loving, hugging and laughing. 

See you soon?

Christmas Past

I just wanted to share a handful of 
my favorite images from my commercial 
and editorial photo shoots these past few years. 

From the shops of Binky la Faye, 
to Timeless Menagerie, 
to Country Garden Antiques, 
and one from my first Christmas 
with a big girl camera! 

To you and yours.... 
Wishing you every blessing this Christmas! 

And from way back when, 
2009 to be exact, one of my very first 
photos ever taken....

Be blessed, be safe, be happy. 
And never forget the miraculous 
reason for the season!

Published in Where Women Create

The Winter issue of 
Where Women Create Magazine 
is on newsstands now,and how lucky am I?

I was asked to photograph 
the completely charming 
studio of Austin based scrapbooking queen, 
Carol Darilek

Carol has converted her cozy laundry room 
into the most darling of studios!

Carol's organizational skills 
in this small space are off-the-charts impressive. 

A beautifully creative space 
for a truly lovely woman. 

Tools of the trade.

Bits and beautiful pieces of this-n-that 
and all the little touches that make
each project uniquely her own.

See that photo above?
THAT is what WWC stands for. 
Women celebrating women. 
Building one another up, cheering each other on. 
That's what it's all about. 
And why I am a proud contributor. 

You can pick up the issue everywhere,
and if it's not easy to locate in your area, 
you can order it HERE.

Thank you Carol Darilek, Jo Packham and Brandy Shay!
