MGM Grand Signature Suites

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Here I am at my annual wedding photographers convention (yes, I know how ridiculous that sounds!) at the MGM Grand.  We always stay at the Signature Suites.  I thought it’d be fun to do self portraits of myself, casual and dressy, on the balcony.  All the windows are tinted with gold reflective mirrors, with McCarron Airport in the background.  Totally cool effect!

Harvey Milk Darkroom

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

I was taking a tour of the Harvey Milk Darkroom and stumbled on this funky old photography chart.  This just begged for documentation.  I love the charcoal gray wall and my gray dress.  It’s all gray tones with a spritz of red.  Thanks to Melissa Castro for the darkroom tour and for taking this excellent photo!

happy birthday to me

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Happy Birthday to me.  Have I mentioned that I celebrate Birthday Week?  Sometimes I even do Birthday Month.  Best holiday ever! And everyone can celebrate their own version of it.  I’m all for it.  Let’s petition the government to make it an official holiday.

I feel a bit sheepish about this, but in honor of all the wonderful photographers I know, I’m doing a full week of yours truly.  Fair warning!
