Strawberry Picking at Sweetberry Farms

We've had a pretty great (if chilly!) spring here in Texas, and a few weeks ago the girls and I went strawberry picking out in Marble Falls, Texas, with a few of my fellow film shooter friends and their kids. The kids had a great time picking berries (and, in Adele's case, eating them as she picked her way through the rows), ate homemade strawberry ice cream, jumped on giant inflatable pillows, petted goats and fed them some berry stems, and generally had a great time. For more photos on film of our day, head over to my friend Heather's blog for her shots. Thanks to Heather, Katherine, and Joyce for the great day! {All photos here shot on a Mamiya 645 with Portra 400 film.}


Hello? Is this thing on? I didn't plan on taking such a long break... turns out that a real vacation involves no internet! I couldn't even get a signal on my phone; originally I had planned to post phone pictures each day we were gone. I was faithful, though, and I did take pictures every day (with the good camera!). So herewith, a sampling of photos from our beautiful vacation to Pawleys Island, South Carolina, where we got to visit with family, play on the beach, and eat seafood to our hearts' content. I HIGHLY recommend it.

The mosaic below is just a sampling of photos taken... I realized I was driving myself a little insane trying to organize each photo by day taken, etc., so you can click on any of the links underneath the mosaic to go directly to my Flickr stream, where there are so many more pictures you may not even want to see them.

Thanks for bearing with my silence! Regular posting should be up and running again as of tomorrow. I hope there are are a few people out there still checking in. :)

Yesterday I had the fun opportunity to shoot some interiors for my friend Britney, who is in real estate. She's the broker for an AMAZING house that's not far from ours, and wanted to get some close up shots of some neat details of the house. It's new construction, but a lot of the wood and doors are reclaimed and salvaged from New Orleans (which of course made me smile). This door leads to one of the children's bedrooms.
