Featured : NAPCP (National Association of Professional Child Photographers) Video Interview

Most debates exhaust me.

In my field of work there are many that get hashed out and then rehashed and then hashed out some more and then beat to death with a pool noodle. I am not interested in entering a debate about Canon VS Nikon or Mac VS PC. Debates on the internet tend to spiral into judgment and name calling with a holier than thou attitude. So when my friend Dana Pugh asked me to join Lori Nordstrom in a “digital file debate” for NAPCP I was hesitant. I decided to do it because I thought Lori would be a valuable person to learn something from, and thought that maybe I would have something to offer to the discussion as well.

I did learn a lot from Lori, and it was really valuable for me to have an open, honest discussion about what we feel is important to both of us as Moms and business owners. Ultimately, I have respect for both sides. If you are a photographer, I highly recommend that you check it out.

Thank you NAPCP for asking me to be a part of this.



the [Framed] interview with: me

AKA I am thankful for good webcam angles! Amen and hallelujiah!

Last Friday I was interviewed by Melissa at Framed via Skype. If you haven’t heard of Framed, watch this quick about video. (That made me tear up, thanks very much.)

From their website:
Lets be real.  Photography is addicting.  It’s an intoxicating craftiness that truly has limitless potential for those that crave the art.  It is in it’s own world of ever-changing possibilities and is constantly evolving.  With that being said, we decided to create a show.  A free, weekly broadcast that captivates as well as educates.  Every week we will bring different photographic talents to you that will share a piece of their wisdom, their work, their process, and their art.

[FRAMED] will take you on location to local, national, and internationally known photographers for the purpose of bringing a behind-the-scenes view of photography to your computer.  All we ask of you is to share, participate and jump on the train of inspirational photography education to inspire you to be unique.  Be careful, you might get addicted.

I felt a lot of pressure because this was my first time being filmed during an interview. I haven’t ever posted myself on this blog in this way. You guys should have seen me running around all morning before the scheduled call…just a tad nervous. I got the kids to school, threw on some make-up and a cute top (but left on my pajama bottoms), and settled into my office. Once Melissa rang me up I immediately felt at ease – she is just so great at this job, and adorable to boot.

So thank you [Framed] – I can’t wait to meet up with you guys next time you are in SoCal.

(Um – the “you know” count is at least 100+ – but if you can forgive me for that, click play:)

You can imagine my surprise and excitement when DAVE CROSS asked me to be a part of his Finish the Sentence interview series on his blog. You can read that interview here, and make sure to check out the rest of the photogs in the series here.

Thanks Dave! How I wish I could transfer some of your photoshop knowledge into my brain!
