This image of Lindsey was taken at the house on Broad Street. She was visiting during the holidays and came and crawled into bed with me one chilly morning. When I got up and saw this sleeping angel, I had to capture the moment. I only shot a few frames so that I wouldn't wake her up. This shot says it all.
I have always been a huge animal lover. As a kid, we had pets of all kinds. My parents made sure that we took good care of them, and this early "caring for others" definitely helped to shape who we were. Since animals are always willing models, I find myself shooting them often, but have rarely showed any of these images. I'm not sure why. As I was going through some folders today, I came across this shot of Sebastian, who is one of my daughters adorable Pugs. He has been a patient "model" more times than I can count.
I love flowers. It's the one extravagance that I never feel bad about. The local Farmers Markets in L.A. have an abundance of beautiful flowers year round. Every week brings a new bouquet to my home. I've been playing with my flash and some long exposures, and am sometimes pleasantly surprised. This is one of the frames that I liked.
