Affiliate Karaoke

Affiliate Karaoke

Recently I traveled to New York and attended Affiliate Summit East 2014.  My primary reason for going, aside from seeing industry friends I don’t live near, was to speak during the Ask the Experts session on Utilizing Affiliate Manager Relationships.  However, a fun opportunity presented itself: being the official photographer for the invite-only Affiliate Karaoke event. Background Affiliate Summit has often, in the past, built fun...

Silvey-Hazelwood Baptism

Silvey-Hazelwood Baptism

I had the honor of photographing my nephew’s baptism at Sacred Heart Church in Oakland, CA on March 3, 2013.  Sacred Heart is where my dad & uncles went to elementary school, where my nonni’s funeral was held at, and where my step-sister went to school as well.  A long tradition!  The original church crumbled beyond repair in the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake here in the Bay Area, so the original church has been replaced...

Latest Photo Project: Fawver Wedding Photo book

Thanks to Shutterfly.com, I’ve created yet another wedding Photo book.  My last photobook was a collection of photos from the Hoffman Wedding, and this time I’ve taken the photos I took at Zachary & Beatrice Fawver’s wedding and put them into a lovely book. You see, I used to order prints of every single photo I took and put them into these big 504 count photo albums.  However, since I started doing that a few years...

Hoffman Wedding

Hoffman Wedding

On October 8th, I had the pleasure of photographing my first wedding ceremony and reception.  My sister-in-law, Celeste, married Mike Hoffman at St. Thomas Becket Roman Catholic Church in Veneta, OR.  I took lots of great pictures.  My favorites are included in the gallery below.  I learned some valuable lessons, one of which being to make sure that your back up battery is actually charged!  Luckily I was assisted by Bridget Braunger...

New Craft: Badge Necklace Clips

New Craft: Badge Necklace Clips

Thanks to some great inspiration from my friend & colleague Karen Garcia, last Friday night I sat down to a marathon of Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil on Netflix to craft.  She’d shown me at the last conference I saw her at a unique badge clips  she’d made, which I wanted to try my hand at. If you’ve ever been to any kind of convention, trade show, or expo, you’ve probably been given a name badge in a big...
