i heart faces is a wonderful forum for photography. I participate in the Fix-It-Friday challenges as well as their weekly photo challenges.

This week’s challenge on i heart faces is “on your feet.” As I was looking back through my photos, I was surprised by how many photos I had from which to choose! My last photo of P365 last year as well as the first photo from P52 would’ve worked nicely. But my favorite and the […]

    Your work is absolutely beautiful.

    I am a holistic nutritionist and a chef in Toronto, Canada. We work with people with cancer, providing a healthy and healing meal delivery service while they undergo treatment. We are still in the start up phases and we are just getting our website in order.

    I was wondering if we would be able to use or purchase the image from Sept 26, 2011 of your gorgeous friend, Renee, for our website. Please let me know if this is a possibility.

    Thank you and have a good day,
