Baby Portrait: Navelle at One Year in Corvallis, Oregon

Here are some of my favorite shots from Navelle's last shoot of her "First Year" package. She's such a sweet, amiable little girl! It was so hot today and she just took it all in stride. She's always such a joy. Click here to see more images.

We spent a little time shooting indoors, too...a little bit of teddy-time!

Build your art collection while helping Haiti, bid on prints by Tina Buescher and others

An amazing photographer friend, Daron Jackson, has tirelessly coordinated an online art auction site to help raise funds for Haiti relief. See her blog for a link to 15 macro floral prints I've donated to the auction (grouped into three sets), plus a lot of other great art work by fellow artists on which you can bid.

Daron has grouped my prints into sets, so there is one set of five bee macros (each print is a 5x5" silver halide color print matted to fit a frame 8x10," frames not included) and two separate sets of five floral macros (each print is a 4x6" silver halide color print matted to fit a frame 8x10," frames not included). Even without frames, the starting bid for a set is lower than you might expect, only $10! The starting bids on all the art work on the auction site are very affordable, it's worth a look!

To bid on the prints, click on the title of this blog entry and it will take you to Daron's auction site. Or you can copy and paste the following address into your browser:

The auction closes on March 5.

Thank you in advance to all those that bid on a set of my prints or any of the other art work featured on Daron's site, all monies collected will go to Haiti Relief by way of Mercy Corps in Portland, OR.

Here is a preview of my donated prints you'll find on Daron's site...

As you may know, I believe all babies are beautiful by definition, so it stands to reason that all mothers are, too. Here's the proof to back me up, Navelle with her beautiful mother.
