9-29-08 Maxwell House in New York

In August, I was sent to New York to shoot a national ad campaign for Maxwell House, the images have not yet run in their markets. Instead I thought I'd send you a couple of out takes.
The first one is a set to see where everything was landing in terms of spacing and whatnot.
The image consists of my art director (left) my agent Paula Gren (middle left) the world's greatest assistant Alyssa (middle right) and The world's husband Steve Howe (right.)
It was rough seas that day and we were only on the  boat for about 3 hours but I have never been so sick in my life. I took everything I could to combat it and I even wore pressure point bracelets and I still got so sick. There are a couple of pictures of me laying on the bow praying to make it off the boat alive, but I'll keep those to myself. I now understand that pregnant woman get worse sick than those who are not. I wish someone would have told me sooner ;)

Tomorrow we'll have shots from the feature for the New York Times. Austin City Limits festival.

The following 2 images are 2 different set-ups and we shot on a tiny yacht floating the Hudson River that day.

9-28-08 We are shooting ACL for the New York Times yesterday and today. It's nice to see the show under the wing of the New York Times because people treat you like royalty and thank goodness, because it's a hard job to do sometimes.
We don't have any pictures for you for that yet since the newspaper gets first dibs and they are publishing on Tuesday.
So today instead I am going to put together from our most recent party. Steve and I found out we were pregnant in April and until recently it was both a boy and a girl. 20 weeks came about 5 weeks ago so we learned we are being blessed with a sweet faced  baby boy and we are overjoyed. So we had a party with all of our family to celebrate him. It was a BBQ and pool party. The next day our family stuck around to help us with some home improvements items, like changing out a ceiling fan, all things I can't do while I am in the family way ;) I was in the pool the day of the party so I didn't take any pictures.
however her are some pictures of our home improvement day, Hill and Reagan supervising, a fine example of how not to use 2 ladders, frustrated Steve reinstalling the ceiling fan, Steve's Dad staying a safe distance, and how many men does it take to install a ceiling fan anyway?! Just kidding everyone we appreciate all of your help.

I was assisting on this wedding. So the lead photographer got all of the fun stuff and I picked up the background stuff. Hope you like it.

Today Steve and I are cover ACL together which should be super fun. I've never been able to take anyone to a show before. Steve will be my first. As it should be.

9-26-08 No seriously where has the summer gone?

I can see now I already chatted a bit about the shoot for Kodak but you never got to see any images. Here are some images from the day shoot in San Antonio for Kodak and the Bravo Group.
Extra, Extra read all about it. I just got a quick call to cover ACL for the New York Times. I haven't been to ACL and there is no better way of doing that than under the cover of the New York Times ;) I should have picture on Wednesday since they publish on Tuesday.
See you soon.
