The Importance of Practice… And How I Need More Of It

“Practice makes perfect.” How many times have we heard that in our lives. How about, “perfect practice makes perfect”? In my household, my Pops preached “practice makes BETTER,” because you never really practice perfectly or BE perfect. I have lived by that for my entire life… until I got to college. Then… As I have gotten older (…because I am NEVER growing up), and pursued new endeavors, I realize how important practice is. I was that kid who would get […]

A Whole New World

WOW! That’s all I can say about the last month or so. I have met so many amazing, attractive, talented, intriguing, friendly people and been introduced to so many amazing sub-cultures. Cosplay, goth, steampunk, Latin dance. Wow, I am so excited and SO HUMBLED by the words and gratitude of people I have shot. I was almost brought to tears — at work — by a young lady I worked with this past weekend at the DC Bachata Congress. She […]

“I Have The Best Friends” And Other Related Thoughts

If we have just embraced after coffee or I have not spoken to you in forever — I love each and every one of you! I believe I take it for granted, but I have some of the absolute BEST friends in the entire world. Granted, my circle is very small. But my friends are a complete snapshot of who I am. Funny, clumsy, creative, thoughtful, loving, forgetful, introverted, extroverted, sexy, passionate, grumpy, classy, etc., etc., etc. I had another […]

I’m Never Gonna Grow Up

Get over it. I’m never gonna grow up. But my art and my eye will. I admit, I’m a bit of a perv. That’s no surprise to people who know me. I still have pervy adolescent thoughts and I love my basement full of toys. But I realized a shift recently. Enough so that I felt compelled to write this. Let me preface this post with the fact that I LOVE glamour and erotic photography. The shape of a woman. […]

Gearing Up For The Con

Sounds like an Ocean’s Seven intro, but I am actually talking about the upcoming Otakon convention in Baltimore this weekend. I am so excited and can’t wait! So many people! So much cosplay! So many anime episodes to watch! So many Gundams to build! So many games to play! So many photo opportunities! But before I head off to the destination of fellow anime nerds everywhere, I am wrapping up some loose ends. I have a TON of photos still […]

Just Having So Much Fun

Did I tell you how much I fuckin’ love photography!? Being a photographer is amazing. But the true reward comes from the giant smile that graces my face when I am in the editing studio remembering the vibe or how awesome the person I just shot was. I have to admit, this comes after spending last night editing some photos of a friend I shot a couple of weeks ago. I was in a pinch. I booked a studio to […]

I Didn’t Wanna Leave Ya Hangin’

Been a little bit since my last post. I have been crushed at work with creating marketing messages for new product releases. I have been getting out of the office late and have had little time for myself. That sucks! But what doesn’t suck is that I have a few photo shoots scheduled for the weekend! My favorite curvy muse, Khrist, is stopping by to give me a little redemption after my last shoot. I have decided to keep this […]

What’s Old Is New Again

Geez. The things I wish I could tell 12-year old me… “Don’t let people tell you video games are a waste of time. Keep drawing. Who cares if you keep getting in trouble because your Mom finds doodles where your school work should be. It’ll work out for you later. Give up trying to be the cool kid. You’ll end up as a nerd anyways. You should have introduced yourself to that cute Filipino girl in Home Ec. class instead […]

The Countdown Begins

My favorite event of the year is 4 weeks away and I am counting it down. Yes, the countdown to Otakon 2016 begins today! I have been attending Otakon for several years. I have never cosplayed or led a panel, but I have attended cosplay burlesque shows and the ever popular “WTF Did I Just Watch” on numerous occasions. I managed to accidentally take over a photography 101 panel a couple of years ago. My bad… Of all of the […]
