Corporate | Juila Brown Photography

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Richard.  His office is on the 22nd floor overlooking the city, which made a gorgeous backdrop for updating his corporate images for the new year.

Morning visitors...

Yesterday morning I was working in my office and had a visitor.  It's so rare not to see a family of deer, but lately this one doe just comes alone. 

She spent quite a while hanging out and poking around sliding glass doors and my office window until the squirrel startled her and off she went. 

She was having a little trouble initially getting the apple I'd set out for her the night before, but she finally got a hold of it and was able to have a nice snack before moving on.

Finn update: One-year ago today, I rescued this little one...

(Or maybe he rescued me?) 

Every UPS or Fed Ex envelope from the photo labs has little chew marks on the corners.

He loves to have his favorite toys around, or in his food dish... all eight of them!

When he wants to play, he will often wrap his front arms around my leg when I'm walking (we're still working on this one...)

He's become good friends with the squirrel that sits next to the window in my office every morning.

He makes me laugh out loud at least once a day with his antics and for that alone, I love him to pieces!

He is a real joy and both he, and I could not have been luckier one-year ago today...

Who can resist this face?

I was cleaning and moving from room to room when I came into the bedroom and saw Finn sitting on the bed looking at me in the most adorable way and I just had to grab my camera.

What a smooshy boy!

Aunty to the rescue

Living where I do, I encounter lots of little creatures, some that I am afraid of, some I am used to having around.  On Friday, I showed up at my nephews house at just the right time!  He pleaded with me to please come up to his room and catch a grasshopper for him.  "Catch a grasshopper???"  I don't even care to pick up their guinea pig!

It's amazing what one will do for a child they love as their own.  I didn't even think about it, I felt like mama bear aunty to the rescue!  As a result of my good deed and being "hero" for the day I was able to get a nice photograph out of it too :)

The beautiful and talented Miss E.

Patt G. "Sneak Peek"

Many professionals have websites, blogs, workplace brochures and marketing materials which include your image and represent your brand.

What does your image say about you?  Does it convey the message you want?

It's important to keep our marketing materials current and that's what Patt did this weekend.  She works in the financial industry and needed some updated images for her latest endeavors.

By Request: Another Finn update!

If you've been following the "Finn updates" then you know that unless you follow my blog you will never--EVER see Finn.  I rescued him from the Feral Rescue Cat Project last November and he is terrified of people.  I am asked regularly by those that know me, or follow the blog how he's doing? 

He's doing GREAT! 

He has a definite schedule...  He wakes up when I wake up, which usually brings me straight into my office to work and naturally this is the time he's into everything.  His favorite thing to do is watch the birds, squirrels, rabbits and chipmunks from my office window (occasionally jumping in the air quite high believing he might actually catch one of the birds) and when that becomes mundane, he's trying to crawl into camera bags, play with camera bag shoulder straps or nestle himself into my print sample basket.

I always stop and take some time to play with him and give him my full attention once a day and then at 11:30 a.m. each morning he naps for four hours and that's when (if I'm not out shooting a session) I go into my office and work for FOUR uninterrupted blissful hours.

BUT...  I'm not complaining, he's a joy to have and makes me laugh out loud at least once a day :)

Thank you all for always asking about him!

It's Fall and mushrooms are sprouting up everywhere!

(Click on image to enlarge)
Three days ago, I stumbled upon what I thought was a unique looking mushroom.  I hadn't seen a mushroom in MY yard with such a long stem (Image on the left is from day one.)

The next day I'd forgotten about the mushroom, was back in the equipment room, turned around and couldn't believe my eyes!  The cap of the mushroom had doubled in size!  (Image in the middle is from day two.) 

This morning, back out there again (yes, there's a never-ending list of duties to do around here ;)  This time I couldn't miss the mushroom, in less than 24-hours the cap opened up flat.  All this took place in just under 72-hours! 

I didn't see the little bug on the first day until I saw the images on the computer--a nice little bonus!
