Future Mr. President


Finnegan got to see the White House gardens while we were in D.C. We happened to be there on one of the three weekends a year that they open the grounds to the public. It was very cool to wander around the President's back yard.

Last of the Snow


I hope this was the last snow storm of the season. I'm tired of feeling even more trapped at home than usual. At least it gave me a chance to put Finnegan in the cute snow outfit I bought him. He was very interested with the weather.

Come on Baby Finn


We are still waiting for Finnegan to make his appearance. Kevin made me a lovely fire this morning before leaving for work, so I decided to photograph my breakfast. A fire makes a great backdrop.

Merry Christmas to Me!


I got lots of fun new photography equipment for Christmas. My inlaws gave me a new lens for my camera, my parents gave me a tripod, and my brother gave me a remote control shutter release. I am all set for low light photography!! Here is a sampling of pictures I've taken since Christmas. I'm trying to get some practice in before Finn arrives.

Typface: Classic Typography


I'm proud to announce that my work was recently featured in a real-live-actual book! They contacted me almost a year ago about a submission, but I never heard anything more. Then, Kevin was searching Amazon for my Christmas Wishlist, and he came across the book. I was so excited!!

Here's what people are saying about it:

"If there is one experience that any graphic designer can relate to, it’s the quest for the perfect typeface. The right typeface communicates the visual essence of the content while enhancing the impact of the overall design. The dozens of type samplers available are often more confusing than helpful, offering hundreds of choices but little guidance. Typeface: Classic Typography for Contemporary Design is a unique sourcebook featuring sixty classic typefaces that continue to resonate with today’s most influential graphic designers. The book is organized using typographic classifications such as sans serif, serif, display, script, and dingbats. Each typeface is presented in detail, including its origin, main characteristics, and uses. The main character set of each type specimen is accompanied by typesheet style examples including technical specifications and non-Latin characters."
