Once again, a big thank you to everyone that came out and supported me and my book (and Lucky Starr's last night in business in this location). I hope everyone had a great time and hope that everyone who got a book enjoys it!

An extra special thank you to Christine of Lucky Starr for hosting my event. Lauren for the hairdo and for all your help setting up (and for driving the farthest for this event!). Jessica for taking all the people shots at the party (I'd have very few photos if it wasn't for you).

For more shots from the event, you can view the Flickr set here.


Release Party 1: the set up

Last night was my book release party! We had a great turn out, and everyone looked like they were having a good time. An all around fantastic night! Here's a few photos of the set up...
Held inside Lucky Starr (a super cute vintage boutique in the Marietta Square. This was their last night open in this location.)
I had a small picture display, books for viewing...
...an outtake slideshow, guestbook, multiple giveaways...
... and a milk and cookie bar!
(Vanilla soy milk & strawberry milk boxes)
(Chocolate and regular whole milk)
Photos of people at the party and the actual event coming up next!


*This Saturday!*

It's finally almost time! THIS Saturday, August 28th, 2010, 5-8pm is the big book release party! (click on the telegram image below to enlarge and see the details)
In addition to the info. I've already shared with you about the party, there's a few updates to add... with all of the controversy and censorship that has been going on over the past month or two surrounding my window display for the book release, the owner of Lucky Starr (the release party location) has decided to pack up and move out of the Marietta Square and into a more open-minded and artistically friendly neighborhood. The night of the book release will be her last night open here!! She will also be offering a 25% discount on everything in the store.

Please come out and support your local artists and independent business owners, and stick it to all those censoring uptight a**holes!

Location: At Lucky Starr- vintage boutique located through Gemtiques across from The Marietta Pizza Company. Address: 5 Powder Springs Street, Marietta, GA 30064

Amber and Matt: Action Sampler

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we were in NC last weekend for our friends Amber and Matt's wedding. Since I was in the wedding, I knew I wouldn't be taking any photos during the ceremony, and probably not many during the reception either. I could only fit one small camera in my purse and instead of taking a point and shoot like the hundred other guests, I opted for my Action Sampler 35 mm film camera. It's not the most flattering picture taker, but fun and silly none the less. Here's a few from the wedding to kick off the "Amber and Matt series".
