What's new.

Journal Entry: Sat May 3, 2008, 12:30 AM

Hey guys.
   Honestly, we've had some ups and downs lately. I don't want to get into it (trying to be professional and all), but let's just say that sometimes I really realize how fickle this industry can be, and what egos people, in general, can have. I'm starting to get pretty stressed out. Ever have those days that you just want to throw your hands up and give up?
   Well, anyway... we've worked with some wonderful people lately, including Mandy Pauline, Ashes, Brooke Bayless, Shannon Bayless, hair stylist Todd Shrider, and of course make-up artist Ruby Woo.  You all seem to be enjoying our new photos with Vicious Dolls and Karen von Oppen as well! Atleast that puts me in a happier mood. :) If you're liking these new photos, make sure you add our flickr page to see more -… .
   Oh and if you miss :iconmissemmap: , we'll be seeing her in June!

   We're shooting an interesting concept tomorrow that (hopefully) should turn out to be a pretty intriguing idea. Hopefully my heart will be into it. Hopefully.

   Other than that, I'm happy to report that my best friend and husband Wolf and I just saw Iron Man and I didn't actually hate it! Who'd have thought. I hate to admit it, but the effects were pretty cool and the storyline was even pretty interesting. We don't catch too many movies in the theater nowadays so it was really nice to actually get out and do something other than work. I think we've just been overworked and could use a break so we don't tire of photography/art. It's so hard for us to just stop and not think about it constantly.

   By the way... we're starting to think about an LA trip for this summer! If any of you are out around there and want to hire us for anything, please send us a note, as we're trying to start figuring out and planning what sort of interest we'd have in Cali before we officially book anything.

xoxo Winter

Yeah this industry (and people involved) is something else... fickle being just a good word to describe it. I can think of many bad ones. You should find many willing models and photo ops in LA... considering its LA! Keep up the great work!

I saw Iron Man yesterday :) I really liked it to. Much better than what I expected. Tho I am pretending it was only just okay and that I was being dragged there in a clever plot to make my boyfriend come see Sex And The City. MWHAHAHAHA!

You can always look at this're IN the industry, and there's still a lot of people struggling to experience it at all.

Don't lose hope, everyone experiences slumps, emotionally or otherwise, it'll turn around soon!

This is an industry based on the perception of beauty so of course it's due to change. You've got to keep in mind why you do what you do :)

I heard Iron Man was pretty good too.
