anticipation

here is something worth reading.

I'd like to say I think it has a lot to do with discipline.

At least in my life I can say I'm disciplined when it comes to photography.

on my to-read shelf

the pleasures of good photographs by gerry badger
collecting photography by gerry badger
art in theory: 1900-1990 by harrison & wood
the photograph as contemporary art by thames & hudson
where the stress falls by susan sontag

what are you reading?

wednesdays: the W



finally took W here last wednesday. Have been dreaming about it for AGES. It was raining. He was so attached to this balloon from the craft store..... looking at the image now made me remember last april (2009), when I took this picture of him.



still obsessed with balloons, but oh, how he has grown! And now there are two!

as a side note--- can't quite decide if i want to edit out those powerlines. I think probably so. Since this image shows that we have a theme, apparently.

MATTER: Adrianne






adrianne has been my best friend since before high school. she's an achiever. a realist, sometimes my polar opposite but always there. steady, reliable, loyal.

i'm an aunt!




so happy to welcome this little person into the green world. he was not quite 2 days old when i photographed him.

geeky deets: 35mm, canon ae-1, fuji 800 iso

a shout out


so my best friend sews.... WAYY better than I do. She has an etsy shop where she sells fabulous things that are perfectly cool for the mom, and rad for the kid-- michael miller fabric even! For example, the crayon roll above. You should check out her stuff. For real.

mood boards

You might not have known, but I'm currently having all my branding & identification done professionally (by Pablo & Paula Airth, the most dynamic duo ever. SERIOUSLY. you can email them yourself and tell them how awesome they are, and maybe even hire them at pairth@mac.com). We're in the mood board stage. I never even knew of such a thing, but I do know that I am CRAZY EXCITED about this entire process, and it makes me excited to think about photography.... more excited than normal, I guess, since I always love it and could seriously talk about it, breastfeeding, cooking and childbirth alll freakin' day long..... with some side conversations on politics, religion and faux hawks. (but i digress.....)

SO.

HERE they are! I LOVE THEM. I'm SOOOO excited.





i'm just so happy that my work can link into all this awesomeness. ... sigh... delighted!~!

going to the fair!

Hi All!

Just an update.

I'll be having a booth with some friends at the Avenues Street fair on Saturday. It is on 7th Avenue between I and N streets (ending at the beautiful lindsay gardens park). Our booth is called "A Bonny Lass" and "Adri's Adorables". We will be on the north side between J and K.

see you there. Remember my little surprise I said I'd have for ya!

tears



oh kiera. thank you for capturing perfectly me in the act of mothering.... stopping tears and calming E's heart. yet another image for my children to see who i was when they were young. i think images of women in their mothering years are so very important.

found


i was looking through some old prints* i had made in the darkroom, with chemicals and everything, that i had mixed up myself), and i came upon this contact print. This was one of my early test images when i was starting to think about doing unmadeup. sigh. i love type-55. i still have some, actually.

in other news, i went to the farmer's market today and unabashedly asked not one, but TWO different women if they would come sit for me. which reminds me, i need to schedule in when to have people come who responded to the other project i'm working on.

happy labor day to all!


you might not remember these. you hold them IN YOUR HANDS! and look at them that way, instead of on a screen.
