Waiting at the Gate

October 30, 2018Photography

I have only done specif­i­cal­ly creepy shots for Hal­loween a small num­ber of times. I’m not good with the dead­lines the sur­round hol­i­day-themed pho­tog­ra­phy because I can’t get in the mood until we’re right up on the hol­i­day and then there’s no way in hell I’m going to be able to edit in time for the pho­tos not to be all sad and pathet­ic and late, so often it just doesn’t hap­pen. But every so often, I get lucky. This year, the luck, dammit!

August 28, 2018Do what now?

I am gen­uine­ly sad about Code Black going off of the air. I was able to han­dle it when it was first announced, but now that we’ve seen the finale I’m stuck in a weird, sad pseu­do-state of dis­be­lief…

Certain places speak more than oth­ers. Some have old­er souls than oth­ers. Some­times it feels like you’re dis­cov­er­ing some­where that no one’s ever been before, and some­times though it is more than obvi­ous that sev­er­al hun­dred thou­sand peo­ple or more have tra­versed these very grounds before you, you still feel new in your own two feet (even if you’re not on the ground upon which you tread). All of these places have sto­ries to tell — some sto­ries were writ­ten by the peo­ple who found them, some sto­ries were writ­ten by the his­to­ry of the land itself, and some came to be as time kept and keeps mov­ing for­ward.

July 12, 2018Photography

The first voy­age out­side of the stu­dio with the infa­mous cir­cle, and my first meet & greet in over 9 years. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go, but I end­ed up com­ing away with at least one shot that I real­ly dug.

… seriously?!

… seriously?!

So, now that Code Black is freak­ing awe­some, the writ­ing is on par, and every­thing is just going so well it’s being can­celed. No sea­son 4. Why does every show I love get can­celed?!
Damn you, Malik!

Damn you, Malik!

Insan­i­ty is think­ing that Song After Song would be any dif­fer­ent from The Tree of Life. Damn you, Malik…

This is one of my absolute favorite cre­ations with one of my absolute favorite mod­els. It’s hard to go wrong with her… and, you know, 100 hours of Pho­to­shop.

Accord­ing to the scale, I’ve lost all of the weight from my sec­ond preg­nan­cy. Heh, the reflec­tion has changed a bit… so let’s cel­e­brate the num­ber. Small vic­to­ries, dammit.

Star Wars cos­play pho­tog­ra­phy with Bran­don Turn­er on Star Wars Day… may the fourth be with you. Or some­thing like that.

I was super excit­ed when my 4 year old woke up dry this morn­ing, if for no oth­er rea­son but the idea of get­ting to take a day off from doing laun­dry. Wahoo! Unfor­tu­nate­ly…

Hello 35…

Hello 35…

April 27, 2018Me

Hello 35 — we meet at last. I always knew this day would come, and now that it has, I am kind of… bummed. I feel like it’s not pos­si­ble — it’s too ear­ly for me to be thir­ty-five, it is just too freak­ing soon. Way too freak­ing soon. Yes, thir­ty five years is thir­ty five years — it doesn’t come lat­er or any ear­li­er for dif­fer­ent peo­ple. And no, it’s not a vil­lain who is com­ing for you… but damn, it sure does feel that way.

Finally!

Finally!

… ok, did you see that? The sea­son three pre­mière of Code Black? It was amaz­ing! I’ve been singing this show’s prais­es since it aired…
