Oh My Darlin' Clementine

Apologies for my absence, but I've been a bit under the weather the past few days with an ear infection.  Thank goodness for acupuncture and antibiotics because I need to hop on a plane to the East Coast tomorrow morning!  Needless to say, my advice to you for a happy and healthy holiday season is to get rest, don't stress, fill up on your fruits/veggies and think positive thoughts!

I enjoy eating a lot of different Christmas cookies but these are one of my favorites.  Admittedly, I did not bake these cookies but bought them from Trader Joe's.  And they're beyond delicious.

A Second Glance

I took this photo this past Autumn and didn't really think much of it but as I was going through all my images, I took a second look and really started to love it.  I'm digging the cool shadows.  Sometimes all it takes is a second glance.

O Tannenbaum

How do you plan to decorated your Christmas tree?  I bought a bunch of ornaments from IKEA because I'm a fan of Swedish designs.  They sell these beautiful crocheted stars...

NY State of Mind

Shooting at the backlot in Universal Studios!  It was basically an all-access pass to check out all the cool sets.  We shot in the NYC section and rented a few taxis for our shot.

Party Time

I don't know about you, but one of my favorite things about the holiday season is getting dressed up and attending a holiday party.  Next week is our company holiday party so I've been looking for a cocktail dress and accessories.  So far I picked out the fabulous headband pictured below.  I'm not sure if it's a wise decision to plan an entire outfit around a headband but it's just so pretty.  We'll see.  If I can't wear it to next week's party, I'll just have to find another occasion!

Winter in the Desert

Wow.  Between the Thanksgiving holiday and a photo shoot I just produced, it's been quite busy so my apologies for the silence.  As mentioned, this past week I was on location around LA and Palm Springs.  My day job involves producing photo shoots for Deutsch, an advertising agency in Los Angeles.   I produce print ads that you've probably seen in billboards, magazines, posters, subway cars, brochures and the web for clients like VW, PlayStation, HTC, Fresh & Easy grocery store, California Milk, etc.  It's fun, challenging, and often gives me the opportunity to travel a bit.

Last Thursday we drove to Palm Springs and shot on a strip of roadway between the wind turbines.  They're pretty awesome and HUGE.  I didn't have time to whip out my fancy camera so I thought it would be fun to try out some of the cool apps that I have on my Android phone.

More photos of my trip to come....
