December 2009 - Photo of the Month

This month was especially hard to choose just one photo (it's hard every month and I'm always trying to workout ways to include multiple photos in one.) I haven't finished posting photos from December, they'll be more coming...

I know I'm partial, but my little feral rescue "Finn" is progressing wonderfully, so I decided he's deserving of the photo of the month once again this month.

Soccer anyone?

In just two-short weeks Finn is growing. He's still got that "little kitty" look, but more and more I see this is changing.

I bought him a soccer ball this weekend and initially, he didn't know what to do with it. He's used to a much smaller ball, but he's getting the hang of it.

He's been a joy!

The F. Family

This was a fun shoot with fun people. Thank you for trusting me and being so agreeable to anything I wanted to try.

We all laughed and as a result captured some great photos.

Thank you F. Family!

November 2009 - Photo of the Month


He was a feral rescue and I'm working with him. He is quick and not easy to capture a photo of as yet, but he's coming along and is absolutely adorable!

A day of soccer... and a few other fun photos!

Yesterday I attended three-soccer games; one for Miss O, Miss E. and Mr. K. I also had time in-between to catch a few fun things not-soccer related.

Who can resist this face?

Not even dad! It was hard not to start laughing... This one works on me the same exact way--like I said, who can resist this face?

Not me!

From my personal projects

(click on images to enlarge)

I have envisioned this shoot for 13-months and it finally came to be last week. I was so excited, because the subject was my brother Jack, doing what he loves second in line to being a fab husband and father.

He's always there for me when I need to ask a question, or I am driving in the city and can't find my way.

He knows that no matter how hard I try not to call him in "two's," I almost always do.

We share a liking of technology and electronics and now instead of calling him right back, I can e-mail him. (Thank you Blackberry!)

When we were little kids, we shared a room and he would wake me up at night and ask me to get him "a gass of watta" and as the dutiful big sister, I always did.

He's my younger brother, yet often I think of him as my older brother.

He is the worlds best brother (WBB!)

I love you Jack!

Dedication of the Five Stand Field in memory of David J. Funes

Sunday, August 16, 2009 was the dedication of the Five Stand Field in memory of my father, David J. Funes. The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious and seeing his old friends and listening to their stories was wonderful.

It was equally heartwarming to hear some of new shooters say that they wished they had the opportunity to meet him as a result of all those who did know him. It’s a real testament not only to the kind of friend my father was to others, but the quality of his friends; that all these years later they still uphold his memory in the shooting world.

On behalf of my family, we thank all of those who were able to make it to the dedication and for those who were not able to make it out on Sunday, just click on the slideshow below for the highlights.

If you would like to purchase a DVD, or a download of the slideshow for your iPod; all proceeds will be donated in memory of David J. Funes to assist the ongoing improvements of the five stand field. Just select the little DVD icon in the bottom right corner of the slideshow.

There is no obligation to purchase. You are welcome to bookmark this page and come back to watch the slideshow anytime you wish.

With gratitude,

Julia Brown

In the woods

Paul and I went up to the watershed today for another mini-session; one that I have had in my head and envisioned for months. I wanted to try some new techniques in an enviorment and backdrop that reflects him best--the outdoors.

Edit: Transform video by Zack Arias

Zack's video made the viral rounds a while back, but every now and then, on the dark, gloomy days I think about it... Failure is just NOT an option and I'm inspired to persevere.

Seafair Sunday and the Blue Angels!

Paul and I went over to Medina today to see if we could catch a glimpse of the Blue Angels air show. In year's past, we've decided (rather last minute) to head that direction and have just plain been lucky!

It's never too late to have the first dance...

Jack and Alison met in graduate school. They had an intimate family wedding in April 2008, which you can see here. This past weekend they celebrated their love with family and friends.

Favorite moment: "Our first dance."

How was the day different than you imagined: "It was over before I knew it! People said it would go quickly and to try to slow down and enjoy each’s really good advice....because it is over so fast and you really want to remember every detail."

Advice for other couples: "You will learn a lot about yourself through this process and if you slow down and listen to people’s advice, you will learn even more. Be open and have fun!! And get an event planner - they make ALL THE DIFFERENCE. We had very little stress thanks to our wonderful event planners!"

The day in three words: "Exciting, Fun, Heartwarming"

Event Planner/Coordinator: True Colors Events - Travis McBurney and Jesse Brix. This was my first time working with Travis and Jesse and they were fabulous! They made my job as the photographer go smoothly.

The Dress: Alison’s dress was made by ‘Sir’ and purchased at Juniper with the help of her good friend Lisa .

Invitations: All About Weddings - Gayle O’Donnell

Flowers: Miki’s Flowers - Miki Maxey

Location: Herban Feast/Sodo Park - Reese Rowe

Caterer: Herban Feast Catering - Reese Rowe

Caterer: Nosh Away provided the Kosher meals.

Music: Michael Benson Band

July 2009 Photo of the Month

This big guy passed right in front of my office this month. He was spectacular!

As usual, I couldn't just stick with one photograph, so here's the other. I was sitting out on the patio one afternoon when I heard all this commotion behind me. It was three crows to this one eagle.
