The Woman’s Cancer Awareness Group said a big THANK YOU to all their wonderful volunteers.
With new members on board, the Woman Cancer Group is filled with fresh energy, which was well demonstrated with a fun dance performance of the board members. Besides homemade food, “snør brøv” by Karin Hoy (traditional Norwegian open faced sandwiches), Bingo & lottery prices brought lots of cheer to the diverse crowed, including “men”:)!

Just learned she had a serious accident and want to send her lot’s of good and healing thoughts!!
Thank you Mrs. Caudle & Mr. Yu!
For four years this creative, innovative and hip teacher couple have been the guide posts for our son at Mary Collins School at Cherry Valley, Petaluma. Jean-Remy has turned from a shy little boy to an expressive, independent thinking teenager. THANK YOU for teaching our kids in such loving and artful way!! Will miss you when our son will go on to high school.
Their daughter, Luna, is very lucky to have such amazing parents! She is already a beautiful girl with a strong independent mind!
Beautiful people make beautiful images:)!
Wonder what would have been we I had had such great teachers!
More in tune with playful learning!
With some good wine you can never go wrong!
Here are some bottle shots I did for a former wedding client and winemaker, aka “Kellermeister” , David Sundberg, who is turning local grape juice into delicious wine at Diamond Oaks Winery in St. Helena.
A friend of mine starting his own wine connoisseur tour guide quite enjoyed it!

For my own records, I had to take a picture of my dear friend, Karin Hoy, who recently received the Volunteer of the Year 2009 Award from the Women’s Cancer Awareness Group. Despite her 80 years, she continues to be an active and charming supporter of this important woman’s health organization.
Karin is the also the mother of the founder, Lydia Zipp, who started WCAG after she & her sister were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and realized how little information was available at that time.
Today, the non-profit organization provides fun, educational and supportive programs for cancer survivors, and awareness of the risk factors and symptoms of gynecologic cancers.

Valentine’s day was a perfect opportunity to have my first Open Studio & support Prop 8 Love Stories – a local theater/film production, while taking photos of people with their loved one. Thanks for all who came to my studio!
Special thanks for the lovely performance of The June Bugs and the amazing support of Brian Bryson, director and creator of Prop 8 Loves Stories.
This is the most touching thing I have seen in a looooooong time! I was crying by the end it is so beautiful. I’m sad we couldn’t make it and next time (if there is a next time) I’ll try harder! -Best,Ellen
Wishing you all a happy, healthy, inspirational New Year with many great things in 2010!!
