Bellies and Babies with Sandy Puc March 28, 2008

Master photographer Sandy Puc was in San Francisco to give a seminar entitled “Bellies & Babies 2008,” as part of a 30-city tour. I’ve heard and read so much about her in the photography circles and publications, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hear her speak. And since I had missed WPPI this year due my recent birth, I was hungry for some new marketing and creative ideas for the business.

I wasn’t disappointed and Sandy (aka Sam to family and friends) was an awesome speaker. She was engaging, quick-witted and darn talented. What mostly touched me was her extreme passion for her work. I know this sounds cliche, but Sandy was the true article. Her photography was the result of her not just her talent and creativity, but dedication, hard work and keen business sense. Her pet project is the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation  which is a organization of photographers who donate their time and talent for infant bereavement.

If you are a portrait photographer wanting to make a niche out of baby and maternity photography, I strongly recommend you attend her seminar when it comes to a town near you.


Johnny’s Easter Baptism March 25, 2008

Easter Sunday couldn’t have been a more appropriate day for a baptism. For many, Easter represents a time of rebirth and renewal. While our birthday will always remain the same, our baptism represents our birth and acceptance into the Christian world – our time of rebirth and the removal of original sin.

That said, what a beautiful day for a baptism was Sunday, March 23 for Johnny IV at St. Charles Church in San Carlos, CA.

I love this photo below. I never knew a baby could feel so comfortable in tights. =) LOL. Check out the entire slideshow at

My new favorite shot of my husband and 6 week old son Milo. I think he has a real knack for connecting with the camera.


And here’s one the hubby took of me. I’m sporting my new bangs!
