Canon Digital Fest 2008

by on Dec.02, 2008, under Personal, Photoshoots

In September 2008 I was asked by Canon and Pictureline to make a guest appearance at  Digital Fest 08.  I bought my first camera, and lights five years ago from Berkley at Pictureline and had no clue that a few years later I would be the person chosen to represent Canon.  It was an honor to be a part of it and it made me appreciate my progress and all the hard work it took to get where I am today.

Stella Almost Drowns 2008

by on Dec.02, 2008, under Personal

We heard bulldog’s can’t swim and luckily ours can because Stella fell in the lake and didn’t come back up and we thought she was gone… as Meli and I were searching for her close to where she fell in, McCade saw her pop up the other side of the boat with her head barely above water!  Now she wears a lifejacket 🙂
