It’s that time of year again- time to get stressed about what you’re giving whom for the holidays! Honestly, I’m a last minute gift giver and I have no shame about it.

Santa Fe New Mexican Sunday Feature: Dog Photographer In Town

I'm honored to have been interviewed for the Santa Fe New Mexican's "Sunday Feature" last weekend. The reporter that interviewed me was so wonderful (and thorough), their photographer did a great job photographing me and Lola (the dog), and I've been so happily surprised by how many people have read the the article in Santa Fe and contacted me.

Pancake's Final Farewell

Writing this post is almost impossible to do, but about two weeks ago I had to say my final farewell and give my very last hug to my favorite dog on the planet, Pancake. He lived an admirable and honorable 13 years on this planet, every single one of them by my side. Like so many people I know, Pancake and I were attached at the hip from the very first day we met.
