portrait of the artist as a young woman :: Modern Toile Photography

So, I hope I don’t get in trouble for posting these images of my friend and fellow photographer, Debi, before she herself has even seen them. Since I know she’s in yoga right now, I made an executive decision. Personally, I love these. Debi (and our mutual friend Lisa) have been developing a nice friendship over the past year. It’s wonderfully generative to have such collaborative professionals on your speed dial… for advice, second opinions, salsa dancing, drag queen brunches and all the cocktails that go along with that. We opt for French 75s. Cause you know, they’re classy.

Oh, yeah. It’s also her birthday on Friday. Happy early birthday, Debi!

I know I haven’t been blogging lately. I’m busy finalizing a gorgeous wedding album for Raj & Jessica. This over-sized album is in a rich, debossed chocolate leather – a leather called date book! The spine is in a soft nubuck suede. Seriously, I want to WEAR this thing. It will be early summer before I get this album completed from the vendor. Perfection takes time. Trust me. It’s gonna be worth the wait.

Some awesome curators over at Etsy have selected two more of my prints to be included in their treasury lists. Check these out.

Girl Looking Out a Window photo by Modern Toile Photography

Girl Looking Out a Window was featured on a treasury list entitled, “I’ve got a gypsy’s soul to blame, and I was born for leaving…” It was also featured in the treasury called “Spring-a-ling”. Thanks again to curators, Cool Ranch Studio and Wild Wilderness Photos, for the Etsy love.

Well, it’s game night for my adorably nerdy husband (who today is rocking some adorably grown-up new shoes!),  which means I’m going to get a few more hours of edits in. Then I’m shutting this computer down to chip away at the some 5000 pages of Harry Potter that I’m rereading before the final movie releases in June. It’s going quickly. I’d forgotten how much better the books were. Anyway. I’d better get to it.
