Thank you so much to everyone who took the time and the courage to nominate their friends and family members for the Giving Is Awesome contest.   I felt honored to be able to read these stories and it is with great pride and joy that I will photograph these fabulous people. 

I’m off to Aitutaki on Saturday to photograph a wedding…on a lagoon…in the Cook Islands.  Tough job, but….

As we bring in another year I want to take a second to express my deepest gratitude to every family and every person in every family for letting me photograph them this year.  Capturing the love and joy in families is my greatest joy in life.  I am honored with your trust and your appreciation.  
Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I am following my heart and my wildest dream, thank you for letting me do that.

Merry, merry, merry Christmas.  And a prosperous, healthy, loving, easy, fun year for 2009. 

Again from Paradise.  until then….
