Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Christa + Mark = Engaged (Blurb Book) December 31, 2008

I’ve been waiting to share the preview of my 2nd Blurb book for engaged couple Christa & Mark.  You may remember their engagement sessions photos posted HERE.

Mark was wonderful to work with on the book.  He decided on what photos he wanted included, what order he’d like them in, and he wrote a beautiful dedication in the front of the book for Christa.  He was so super organized with the details that it allowed me to be more creative with the design.

The book was a Christmas gift from Mark to Christa (so I had to wait to post it) and from what Mark told me the book was a huge hit with her!

My First Customer Photo Book with Blurb December 12, 2008

I just completed my very first Blurb book for the “S Family” of “N’s” First Holy Communion – from back in May!

I loved making it and I can’t wait to work on more customer collections in book form.  It brings back my graphic design days that I really enjoyed!

I’m also looking forward to making my own Blurb Books for 2007 and 2008 if I can ever get time!

Photobooks/The World’s Largest Lightbulb…I’m not kidding! It’s is! January 20, 2008

These photos you’ll see below were taken back on July 21, 2007. This weekend I concentrated on catching up on 2007!

My goal is to make my own “Best of 2007” hard-bound book of my favorite works. In order to start creating the book I need to edit all of my 2007 photos so I can see what I’m working with and decide what I want to feature.

To create the book I’m going to be using BOOKSMART that works in conjuction with my smugmug account once I downloaded BLURB Booksmart’s software.

Now on to the photos…here is something I bet you’ve never seen before…

It’s the World’s Largest Lightbulb!

Edison – Menlo Park, New Jersey

The Thomas Edison Memorial Tower and Menlo Park Museum was built in 1937 to mark the “Birthplace of Recorded Sound” in the Menlo Park section of what is now the town of Edison, NJ. The World’s Largest Light Bulb is thirteen feet tall, weighs eight tons, and is illuminated at night. The tower marks the spot where Edison invented the light bulb (Henry Ford stole the actual workshop and bottled Edison’s Last Breath). The museum curator, Jack Stanley, entertained with amazing tales of Edison and his competitors, but said the Last Breath thing was a bunch of hooey.

Inside the tower’s base is a “highly exhausted” light bulb that’s been burning since 1929

I toured the museum, it was quite crowded with people on a Saturday afternoon. I listened to the curator, Jack Stanley, for a little bit and then snuck out to snap some the shots above. You’ll notice in the 1st shot that there is a metal chainlink fence around the monument…it’s actually under repair so I didn’t get to go inside like I had hoped (there’s always next time I go by). While I was in the museum I learned that they just got the final grant to restore the tower which was in disrepair.

Here is a few videos that I found on YouTube of the Edison Museum Curator – Jack Stanley… just in case you’d like to hear what I heard when I went there…
