{events}: GIRL4GIRL "Winter Heat"

Those who know me, know that Kendall and I met at Girl4Girl in Everett a little over 2 years ago...which is kind of crazy. She couldn't believe she was dj'ing in Everett (at a Girl4Girl none the less) and I never thought I would A) end up with a dj and B) meet someone at a bar. Well I did, we did. Since then, we haven't frequented the event but this last month she was asked to play at the newly relaunched Seattle monthly event at Club Sur in SODO. We didn't quite know what the event was going to be like, but we did know that the beautiful, talented Miss Fuchsia Foxx was the creative director and that Kendall was asked to play "what she plays". So Kendall grabbed her "Lezbro" Tony Burns and the two of them planned to WOW these girls! AND THEY DID (and as a treat, you can hear it too CLICK HERE)!!! "Winter Heat" was hot and here are a few shots from what turned out to be an amazing evening...

Trannyshack CollagePS

Heklina and girls made their way over to the Ace Hotel & Swim Club for WEST COAST LOVE TRAIN over Gay Pride weekend in Palm Springs.  The show once again had us hollering and loving every minute of it.  Videos of the performances can be seen via YouTube on the Hard Times Presents page
(prepared to be WOW'D!!). 
Heklina lost her heart to a starship trooper
(which I have not been able to get that song out of my mind since, and we have been home over 2 weeks).
 Ethel Merman was once again OUTSTANDING!!!  Her rendition of River Deep Mountain High had Kendall SCREAMING and the crowd sang along for Ohhh La La
Ethel Merman Collage
And Ms. Squeaky Blonde gave tribute to Miss California

Paint It Pink: A night for Susan G Komen

On October 28th, my friend and local comedienne Shannon Whaley held her first comedy show at the Pan Pacific Hotel in support of breast cancer.  Her show "PAINT IT PINK: A night for Susan G. Komen" had a lineup of local talent that left us all in tears and raised over $1000 for breast cancer research.  I was honored to have donated my time and camera to capture these shots.

Please meet: Ethel Merman

Earlier this week I posted a photo collage from Trannyshack Seattle, I also posted these pictures individually to my Facebook page.  I was contacted by Miss Ethel Merman, requesting my pictures for use on her website (ok, I was a little bit excited I won't lie)!!!  I also had some additional photos I had taken of her that she requested.  She blew all of us away with her rendition of River Deep Mountain High at Chop Suey last weekend, and we can't wait to see her perform again next weekend in Palm Springs at the Ace Hotel for Gay Pride.    Can't make it to Palm Springs?? Jump over to YouTube and catch some Ethel Merman Experience for yourself!

Trannyshack Seattle

{CoupleShoot}: Marsha & Stephen

I know it's been F-O-R-E-V-E-R since I have sat down and posted to this great blog I have started.  Well, let me tell has been C-R-A-Z-Y!!!  Let me give you a little catchup ~ October 8th was my last day working for the company that I had given 11 years of my life to, so with sad goodbyes I moved on to the corporate world!!  A chance for growth, many opportunities and yep you guessed it MONEY!  Funny how that is always a motivator isn't it?!?!  So all that being said, I have been consumed with training and new schedules, etc. 

I did though, get the chance last weekend to spend a few hours with some friends whom I have not seen in a long time and we took that time to head to Jennings Park and take some amazing photos.  I was honored to be asked to do this for them.  Marsha and Stephen have been married for 17 years and this was their first time doing a shoot together.  I am blessed to have this couple in my life and while it had been more years than I care to say since we had seen each other, it felt just like yesterday.  I want to share with you just a few of this great fall morning...ENJOY!

So FINALLY I am finished and releasing the studio pics I took of Sammy LaForge back in the beginning of September.  While I spent the afternoon in our studio creating great pictures of him and LA Kendall, but we still have to wait for those. 

Ladies and Gentlemen....SAMMY LAFORGE

Well HELLO Monday!

The weekend has come and gone!  I can say it was pretty productive - family time, haircut and photo session downtown, Kendall finishing laying down her tracks in the studio, dinner with Kendall's sister and a drop off at the airport and that was all on Saturday.  Yesterday was a complete stay in your jammies kinda day with lots of photo editing and even some cookie making!  I am still working on trying to do daily challenges, so here are my Monday entries...

I love Mellow Yellow Monday's.... I again was playing with my white posterboard and Jacob's legos. I like to call this "The Lego People"


Would you like to see some more YELLOW??? Click below!

I also snapped some shots of my late step-grandmother's rhinestone earrings.  I remember admiring these as a little girl, and when my grandmother passed my stepmom honored me with them.  I can say I have worn these vintage beauties and always feel so glamorous when I do.  What girl doesn't love a little bling?!?! Again, joining Macro Monday over at Lisa's, wanna join in or see some other great macro shots? Click on the icon below my photo.

Sunday Challenge - Straight Out of the Camera

While today has been a pretty lazy, laid back Sunday it has allowed me to get some work done.  That's a good thing.  Besides working on Jacob's shoot, I thought I would branch out and do some other things too.  This is my second week linking up with Murrieta 365 SOOC Sundays.  This shot of Kendall on the decks is amazing for both its light streaks and the reflection of her hand on the vinyl.


ISO 400, f/3.5, 1/.5, 8.9mm (this was taken with my point & shoot)

Would you like to see more great shots straight out of the camera? Click below:

Ready for round 2?!?

I said I had more!  Here is batch 2, wardrobe change 2...
and this time I figured out how to collage!

We took to the streets

This year, I decided...WHY WASTE MONEY FOR SCHOOL PICTURES?!?!?  I always complain every time I write the check for which ever company is taking the schools pictures, I'm never happy with the way they turn out, and I think I still have a stack left from each year.  They just sit there, in the package he brought them home in, never being distributed.  So this year, Jacob and I decided lets get out and do some photos! 

We started our day out with a trim of his wig at VAIN by TT, then hit up the graffiti wall that sits outside the salon along with some pictures among Pioneer Square.  I made him smile and pose until he finally said...ENOUGH MOM!  Here are the first few pictures to share, I won't bore you with all of them.
