today.. i got to shoot my first movie star. :) this incredibly handsome young man is also a very talented young actor, with a movie coming out soon! (more on that later). his family are dear old friends of mine whom i adore. it was so good to catch up with them this afternoon as we froze together in the cold! AND i got a cup of hot chai out of it. who can beat that? here's one for now, joneses, because my computer is acting up and clearly does not want me post processing any more images this evening.

little jackson

oh this kid is cute. he's a clone of his beautiful mommy, who is a friend of mine. we did a teensy weensy mini session with this little one during a playdate at her house. is he not darling? more to come...

prose for portraits *WINNER*

man, was this HARD! we got so many great nominations, but when i read this one, i just knew.

i have known this family for awhile, but not nearly as well as i would like. this little boy has been through more trials and tests and surgeries and SCARES than many adults. and if you have kids, you know how hard this is on parents. the testing, the waiting, is it good news? bad news? this has been this family's life since this angel boy was born. and the testing and the surgeries have no end in sight at this point.

i am THRILLED and honored to announce that the winners of the prose for portraits contest, though incredibly difficult to pick just one family, are


(hope you don't mind, i ganked this from facebook.:))

Scott, Jen and Carter, get your hair ready and your makeup done cuz we're doin' a session!!! I will contact you SOON about timing, which, could very well be AFTER this baby is born!

congratulations, and please check out these other photogs to see who their winners were:
