Love the look of the special keepsake envelopes with the pretty watercolor-y typesetting!

On Assignment: HLM March/April 2015 cover shoot

6 03 2015

Cover “models” Bill, Debbie, Lauren, Chris and Chase grace the March/April 2015 issue of Hearing Loss Magazine, published bimonthly by the Hearing Loss Association of America. They were photographed at the Texas Transportation Museum in San Antonio, TX.

This year’s HLAA Convention will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, at the beautiful St. Louis Union Station, a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel (hence our “All Aboard” cover for this issue!).

In a merely coincidental nod to the host convention state, they were photographed on former Missouri Pacific caboose 13083, one of the last cabooses ever built. It dates from the 1980s, not long before the use of cabooses was discontinued. When the museum acquired the caboose around 1990, it was a burnt out hulk, and has since undergone a radical transformation to passenger service, with both interior and exterior seating.

My “models” were instructed to “pack your bags, wear something really summery, wave and smile, and just pretend it’s the end of hot-hot-hot June and not 45 degrees in January!” Ah, such is the life of a model…

Another shameless plug for my waterlily stamps!

6 03 2015

Here’s a cool statistic that I just learned from the USPS PR man—normally they print stamps in quantities of 40-50 million.

They’re printing my waterlily stamps in a quantity of HALF A BILLION—500 million stamps, which usually only happens with their holiday stamps. He said flowers tend to sell particularly well so they’re hoping this is the case with these.

So, on that note, go out and buy a book of 20 on March 20 (when the stamps make their official debut across the US)! You’ll make the USPS (and me) very happy indeed. (And no, I don’t get a cut of sales, in case you’re wondering!)

Growing older gracefully (and beautifully, too)…

11 02 2015

So my sister Debbie gets this wild and crazy idea that we should recreate her “Star-is-born-hairdo” portrait and twenty minutes later, we had a quick new portrait—a modern take on an old favorite. A mere 33 years later…she’s still just as lovely!

On Assignment: Indoor/outdoor living area by Cross Construction

28 01 2015

Earlier this month I photographed an indoor/outdoor living space remodel by Cross Construction here in San Antonio, Texas. Previously, the area where the hardwood floor is now was cement and was part of the outdoor patio. Access to the patio was through a pair of French doors. In the remodeling process, walls were knocked down and the living area was extended, then the folding/sliding doors were added. The owners had a dining room table in this space, which was moved in order to get an unobstructed view for the photographs. Can you imagine how inspiring an art studio would be in a space like this?

My waterlily stamps debut in March!

24 01 2015

Look what I just found! The Garfield-Perry March Party stamp show will host the First Day Ceremony for my four waterlily FOREVER stamps on Friday, March 20 at 11:00 am. The show is March 19-21 in Cleveland, Ohio. Guess who’s planning a road trip to Cleveland in March?
