Dee Martin is an actor from NY who traveled all the way here to Maryland for me to shoot his professional acting headshots. You can view Dee’s acting resume and accomplishments HERE at IDMB. Maybe one of my photos will replace that one there… ;)

If you are an actor/ actress/ Realtor, or need some other type of profession headshot in the Washington DC metro area, I can be of service. Just contact me via the Contact Tab on my website.

I love to cook, and I especially love easy, fast tasty food.  The following recipe is one of our family favorites.  We eat this once a month, if not every three weeks.   I’ve made it so many times, I don’t need the recipe anymore. Enjoy!  I know you will!

Rotini with Spinach & Asiago Cheese

1 pound rotini pasta
1/4 cup olive oil
2-4 TBS minced garlic
1 (9-ounce) bag fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup (about 3 1/2-ounces) grated Asiago
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Meanwhile, warm olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach and tomatoes and cook until the spinach wilts, about 2 more minutes. Add the cooked pasta and toss. Add the cheeses, salt, pepper, and the pasta cooking liquid and stir to combine. Transfer the pasta to a serving plate and serve.

We serve this with cheesy garlic bread, and call it dinner. A couple times though I have served it with italian-fried chicken (Dredge chicken tenderloins in flour, then coat in beaten egg, then dredge again in Italian Bread Crumbs. Fry in Olive Oil in Med-High Heat until done).

The S Family

January 25, 2011

I know how much fun my job is. I know that cuddling babies is so precious, and capturing toddlers smiles almost magical. Sometimes though… I’m reminded about how important my job is.  To capture your family, just the way you are, in that moment, forever.

Dad here is in the military armed forces, and by the time I post this… already deployed back overseas… again.  Eight months this time.  But, Lord willing… this will be his last deployment, and he’ll be back for good before Christmas.  So, it was my deepest honor to document and preserve the S family, in all of their preciousness.

Happy Birthday A!

January 19, 2011

I can’t believe that Mr. A has turned ONE already. It makes me a little sad that I won’t get to see him regularly anymore…. I’m already excited for our Fall session!

A quick year in review… watch Mr A grow!

Sweet baby V and her just-as-lovely Mama came to visit me just last week.  V was full of yummy gummy smiles, and she’s just 8 weeks old!  V looks so precious in her Holiday dress!

Till Next Time!

52/52 The End

January 6, 2011

I did it! 52 weeks of photos!  here were times I didn’t want to get off the couch on Sunday afternoon to take the shot… but I did it!  I’m really proud of my little collection of my year in photos.  It’s definitely a project I recommend, as sometimes you have to think out a concept to shoot.

I don’t think I’ll be doing it this next year, but don’t fret, you’ll still see my kids. :) I’m tossing around the idea of the project “5 Burns 12 Times” a family photo a month… but I’m sure Nate would kill me.


Phew! THANKS for coming along on this journey with me!
