I went to see my nephew perform stand-up last night. So proud to see him getting into the arena, there are few things that would scare me more!! I am continuously amazed by how comedians can make you think about such important things while at the same time making you laugh. His smart comedy does exactly that. It reminded me that I have had the opportunity to shoot with prominent comics, Richard Lewis, Jeff Foxworthy and the late Danny Ganz over the years, all who left me inspired at the end of the shoot. Comedy can be a great way out of a hard situation, and it can also shine a light on subjects we are afraid to broach. At this time in our world, it seems laughter is hard to come by, thank you to all the comedians out there for making us laugh, and even more thanks for making us think.

Congratulations to Owen Vaccaro on the release of "Daddy's Home 2"! It is always such a delight shooting with Owen Vaccaro. Even at a young age his sublime wit and professionalism shine through allowing us to quickly capture a variety of looks and characters. Keep an eye out for his next film, "The House with a Clock in its Walls" where he stars alongside, Jack Black and Cate Blanchett, releasing September next year. We are sure there is much more to come from this very talented young man!

Going for a glass of champagne with my crew to celebrate the launching of our new website. Have to admit it has been a long process for me to go LIVE. My daughter asked me why actually she’s been asking me for the last month “Have you done it? Are you live? Did you do it?” I said, "Siara, you don’t understand- I love my old site and get so many compliments about it that this one needs to be better, faster, stronger for me to attach myself fully to it." Which we’ve done!! I told her on our morning bike ride towards her school, "I think what I've realized about my work is that it is timeless- the shots I took 10 years ago have the same authenticity as the ones I shoot today. They pull me in and make me feel like the person is talking to me like I shot them yesterday and it may have been 10 years ago." That authenticity is proven time and again as my clients continue to RETURN AND book more and more work in the industry. The process of recreating our site makes me realize that I sit in a unique place in my career. I am proud of the body of work behind me while there is a wide open space ahead. It is at once freeing and daunting and my creative juices are working. Stay tuned!! Below, me circa 1986 and just recently...
