"I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change"

I am so excited! We're doing a photo shoot tomorrow for the cast of Love, Perfect, Change. We haven't even begun rehearsal yet, but we'll have shots for the website, where you can make your reservations already!

So what are you waiting for? Go make 'em!

Oh, yeah, well. In the meantime, I'm also tickled about the last couple of sessions I did.

Here's Henry. He's a kind, powerful and wonderful man, who also happens to be a lawyer.

Paullette is a playwright, and the Artistic Director for Paradox Players. If I had no other light but the north light from her window here, I could die a happy photographer.

Who wants a portrait session with me? C'mon...

Go see more at Love and Light Images. Oh. And stay tuned for more on "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change."

Special Photographer Trick

This is just a photo -- no post processing. I cropped it. But that's all. The Sexy Beast. Looking heavenly.

This is a old fashioned photographer's trick called, "Taking A Photo of A Reflection."

First Prom

Sexy Beast and I made a brief jaunt to Houston this weekend to take GMan to enjoy his girlfriend's junior prom. I think he had a good time. I know we did. (A side note: His prom was at the Majestic Theatre downtown. If you print a map to the Rothko Chapel, you should make sure it's a map to the Rothko Chapel, and not the Majestic Theatre.)

We left town noonish on Friday after I had my hair colored. I like it lots, and look forward to showing it off. ;-)

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Derek. Room 1125. All the rooms are apparently "corner rooms" thanks to the architecture of this groovy hotel, redecorated "loft" style in 2004, after it was bought in 2001. Stay here in Houston.

We took photos of GMan and his girlfriend at the hotel, then went out to dinner at Ninfa's Galleria (no need to go there again) just across the street and up the block from the hotel and then we retired to the hotel room again.

Saturday we lunched at Niko Niko's (Great place! As proof, the line was out the door, and the wait on food was a half an hour.) We had a wonderful conversation in the rain, at a dry table just under the awning of the building on the patio. Then, we visited the Rothko Chapel , the Houston Center For Photography (ok, just me, SB was napping) and then we viewed the Menil Collection.

From there we proceed to meet GMan, took him to a party, and went to dinner at CoCo's (we are SAD there is not one of these here.) The crepes were amazing, the tomato bisque soup velvety, tangy rich deliciousness.

Then we picked up the GMan and proceeded home, pulling in the drive at just before 1 this morning.

And! Zeta decided to take a field trip while we were out of town. She's fine and at home now, though she took a walk through the neighborhood where she was visiting and found some cute little girls and another schnauzer to play with while she was out. We're glad she's safe. We felt terrible for our sweet friend who had to call us and tell us he couldn't find her.

Tonight, we're going to take a jaunt up the road to see Iron Man. I'm excited not just to see the movie, but I understand the X-Files trailer is tagged on to the Iron Man film...
