Whoever came up with girls playing full-contact football wearing lingerie is a genius.
If you haven’t heard of the Lingerie Football League, I highly suggest you check them out. What started out as a Super Bowl halftime show is now an actual sports league.
San Diego is one of the newest cities to have their own lingerie football team…and I was fortunate enough to be selected as their photographer. I got to photograph the shots for their promotional items as well as their web site…

I’ve been enjoying one of the most laid back, non-eventful weekends I’ve had in a while. For once in a long while, I didn’t have any plans. Any shoots. Nothing. I’ve used this time to get caught up on a little video editing and a lot of sleep. :) I sort of don’t like it. I want something to do.
As most of you know, some of my photos were used in last month’s issue of Revolt In Style Magazine. I was stoked. :) And what was even cooler is that Brian, the publisher of Revolt, called me up and told me he wanted me to shoot the swimsuit issue. I was definitely down. :)
So, we did two shoots…one shoot downtown at the Hard Rock Hotel, featuring some shots with Unwritten Law…and then another shoot at a gorgeous house in La Jolla with an infinity pool. I shot with two new hotties, Lara and Melissa…and got to shoot with some of my favorites, Emily and Ashley (who I recruited at the last minute and who was able to fill the spot.) It was awesome…and the pages look great. I hope they ask me to shoot again…because shooting for this magazine has definitely been fun times. Anyway, here are a few shots from the two shoots…

And check out Revolt In Style Magazine…out now. :)
So a friend of mine text messaged me last night and told me, “Hey, I saw some of your pics in Revolt Magazine.”
I was like, “Seriously?”
I knew they were gonna use some of the shots from our iTan shoot…but I didn’t freakin’ know they were gonna use all of our shots for their bikini spread.
And one of my shots got the cover…
Anyway, I’m really stoked that our shots came out so good that they wanted to use them for the mag. I drove all over PB to find a copy…and I scored a couple. But if you see one around town, pick one up and check out our shots with Em, Elisabeth, Casie, and Bree. And if you aren’t in San Diego or can’t find one, check out the newly updated portfolio…the shots are all up. :)
It wasn’t always roses, candy, and other sweetness. I admit, there were times I rolled out of bed in the morning and thought of doing the whole, “Mom…*cough*…I don’t feel well…*cough, cough*…”just to get out of 2nd period AP English. There were times when the days were SO lame and SO long. But you know, as much as high school, or even junior high and elementary school, sucked…it was always a safe place to be.
I could show up in the morning and my worst fear was failing a pop quiz in calc…not getting shot in the quad.
This is one of those “WTF,” sort of moments for me when I not only wonder what the hell happened to our society that our kids can’t even feel safe going to school to get an education…but how in the hell kids get guns in the first place…and then get ideas to use them on other kids. Sure, there were people I couldn’t stand in high school…but I’d never shoot them. That’s what the stinkeye is for.
So I continue to be astonished and amazed at how we as a society are falling apart piece by piece. Eventually, I hope our own stupidity stops rubbing off on our kids. I mean, for the effing love…at least give them a fighting chance to learn, grow…and most important…live.
Just got word from the CW that the hit show (and my favorite Tuesday night guilty pleasure) is ending after six years. There was talk about possibly continuing Gilmore Girls next season with a mini 13-episode season…but no-go. Looks like we have 2 more episodes and that’s it.
So many stories are going to be left unresolved and that pretty much sucks. For those of us that invested time watching what was probably one of the best shows on television, it’s just frustrating to see where it has ended…with so many loose ends.
Last episode airs on May 15. We will definitely miss Rory, Lorelai, Luke…and yes, even Taylor.
I’m not going to lie…being in show choir was probably one of the coolest things I’ve done in my young life. Nevermind the blue sequins and jazz hands…it was still a lot of fun and some of the best memories I have from high school.
So good, in fact, that when I went off to college, I wanted to be a music teacher when I grew up. The dream is still there years later…there are times I wish I had gone on to credential and direct a program of my own. Perhaps even having my own show choir. And I could do it too…if I wanted to…
There are a lot of things I attribute to my not pursuing my education certification. Budget cuts. Low wages. Bureaucracy. But one of the biggest reasons I think I jumped out when I had the chance was the school environment. School is a lot different these days compared to when I was in school. Kids have absolutely NO respect for teachers at all. I could write an entire blog about this and what I think the breakdown is and all the problems are. I could write about how all my friends that are teachers are stressed and discouraged because of the discipline problems they have in the classroom and how learning and teaching just isn’t fun anymore (except in those rare circumstances). But I won’t do that. What I will say is that violence in schools and anywhere else for that matter can happen anywhere…even in small, sleepy, country towns. Like where I grew up.
And this is what I woke up to this morning.
