Good Morning America is featuring my photo of a giant Chimichanga at the El Charro Cafe, (graciously modeled by my husband Jason),  on their website. They say, “that they’ve scoured the country looking for the largest and fattiest foods.  From deep-fried delicacies to larger-than-life sundaes, here are the foods that you should probably share.”







Tucson is HOT in the summer. Most days hover around 100 degrees. There’s still fun to be had, though most of it happens after the sun goes down, or inside, or underwater. I was paired with two elementary school boys and their parents, sent to three amazing locations and set loose to have a good time while photographing the results for Tucson Tourism’s summer ad campaign.

We went to The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, and The Mini Time Machine. The kids and their parents were charming and funny and we all had a blast.

PDN Magazine is running a feature article about it titled Tucson Tourism the Real Way.

Here’s a few of the images I took, followed by one of the final ads:

Phoenix Wine Bars

March 9, 2008

One of my favorite publishers sent me to Phoenix to photograph wine bars. How great is that? One of them ended up being a wine & chocolate bar which was even better! It was a good day. Here are a few of the images from the magazine article.
