Dog Portraits Book

The incredible pet boutique Buster and Sullivan has asked me to create a book of my work for their stores. I just got it back from the printer and it looks fantastic! The grand opening party for their new Malibu store is this Thursday night and I'm covering the event for them and I can't wait.

Here's a sneak peek of the cover the book. I'll post images from the inside of the book on Thursday.

Mike and Deborah's Wedding

I met Deborah Obad in 1994. We shared an office together the size of a shoe box at the Shapiro-Lichtman Agency and thank goodness we got along so well. She has since become my best friend and I was honored to shoot her wedding last year to the lovely man in her life, Mike Kampler. My good friend Laurie Bailey also shot that day and we both love how the photos came out. She's been married now just over a year and I never shared the images of her wedding until now. These are my four favorites from the day.

A Sneak Peak - Jessica and Paulo

I had never met Jessica and Paulo until their wedding day and what a lovely couple. They got married at The Beach House at the Metropole Hotel on Catalina Island and it was a very appropriate venue. It was sweet, intimate and Jessica is incredibly talented and thought out every and I mean every detail of the wedding. I only have these photos back from the lab and I thought I would share them with you. They were shot with infrared film and with my ever trusty Diana camera. My next entry about this wedding will be about all the wedding details that Jessica so cleverly thought up.

Our Very Own DVD Launch Party

I met Cameron Watson in 2000 when I was still a talent agent. We hit it off immediately and kept running into each other at openings of plays at the Taper and the Ahmanson. My friend Scott Musgrove often went with me to those openings and as it turns out they did summer stock together in Alabama in their early 20's. Talk about a small world.

Not only is Cameron an incredible actor but a wonderful writer/director and his first film is finally out on DVD, Our Very Own. It's a lovely tribute to his hometown of Shelbyville, Tennessee. The play takes place in the 1970's and partly revolves around the rumored return of actress Sondra Locke to her hometown of Shelbyville. The movie stars Allison Janney, Keith Carradine, Cheryl Hines, Beth Grant, Jason Ritter and Autumn Reeser.

Allison Janney, Cheryl Hines, Sondra Locke, Peri Gilpin, the legendary Ann Rutherford, the OC's Autumn Reeser and Ugly Betty's Octavia Spencer all attended the party.

Click here to view the slideshow (or see below) from the event I shot last week at the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica. It is set to the theme song of the movie "Our Very Own" sung beautifully by Nanci Griffith and Keith Carradine.

Wasn't I Cute?

My Uncle Gil, an incredible photographer in his own right, recently sent me a cd of images from when we were kids that he shot. Included on the cd was this image of me when I was probably about six years old. I had never seen this photograph of me before!!

You'll see a strawberry patch in the background which we grew every year in our front yard. Wasn't I cute?

Spinning the Bride Around

I attempted this set of images for the first time with Ashley and Scott on their wedding day at the Fenyes Mansion at the Pasadena Museum of History. I just love how they turned out and created this flash show of the images in sequence. More images to come (including a slideshow!) of Scott and Ashley's incredible wedding.
