My friend Diane invited me down to help celebrate her Abby’s high school graduation.  Congratulations again Abby… you rock!  I was so happy when Diane said that she wanted to gift her sister Patty […]

helena turns one {san francisco, ca}

After back to back trips to California and Boston, I’m finally catching up on my editing. Jamie (Helena’s pop) picked out this great indie rock song for their slideshow.  The song is called “Ageless Beauty,” and I think it’s a pretty safe bet to say the title describes both of Jamie’s loves… Helena and her […]

Summer will officially arrive in a week, but it still feels like spring with all of the baby critters making their way into the world.   In particular, I’ve seen so many baby chicks sitting on the ground, after taking maiden flights from their nests.  The parent birds, are usually on a telephone wire or in […]

luckiest dad in the world {los angeles}

This father and daughter duo, are the best of the best! Okay, I confess I’m totally biased… you see, for the past four years, I’ve been lucky enough to call these two my family. There are not enough adjectives in the world to express how truly awesome Giovanni and Besso are! A few weeks ago, […]

birds & bees {spring photography}

Spring is here.  With it’s arrival, comes lots of critter activities. I’m in love with this little blackcap chickadee that is collecting dog hairs, off my back deck, for what is sure to be the most luxurious nest in the neighborhood. Look at that cute little face! Just before take off with the newly collected […]

rainy day {blues}

Whether you are a small dog or trying to fly out of a large metropolitan airport (read JFK), rainy days can make you blue.  I was supposed to fly to Los Angeles today, but because of the very rainy weather, my flight kept getting delayed further and further into the evening.   So instead of spending […]
