My cup is empty

I just returned from a lovely gathering of photographers. It was held at the Sidney Pier Hotel and I HIGHLY recommend it there. The service was fab, the food delish and the rooms just right - it didn't hurt that I got up-grated to a premier suite. I often forget how important it is for me to...

The Walkers and their clan made me cry

I don't know what was with me the week I photographed the Walker Family, but I was super emotional. Maybe it was the kids heading back to school, or well hormones (can I write about that on the blog, or is that a classic over-share?) However I think have good reason to feel a little deeper when...
