• Bum Shoulder and a 4 Our Heroes Shoot


    Friday July 21, 2017 –  As you may know, I’m a television photojournalist. For twenty-three years I’ve covered news for NBC Los Angeles, not only around Southern California but also the world, loaded down with a beast of a camera–which leads to where I am now, with a bum shoulder. But hey… I’m adaptable, right? (more…)

  • Feeling disconnected? Me too! Site crash!!


    July 16, 2017 – Howdy friends! If you’ve cruised either Motor Dolls or my author site this week, you may have found disconnected pictures or wonky formatting. There’s a reason why. (And no… it has nothing to do with this randomly placed photo of my tailgate I took today…) Talk about a major site crash! (more…)

  • Hillbilly at Heart


    I blame my love of vintage house-dresses and boots on my half-hillbilly blood, courtesy of my daddy. (more…)

  • Spring


    Let’s take a break for Spring with a few iPhone flower photos, shall we? Is that why “Spring Break” is a thing?  A moment to break away from the stress of life to stop and smell the flowers?I’ve had my fair share of flower-smelling lately. Since January, I’ve been off work with a shoulder injury… …and to keep from losing my mind in the house all day, I’ve been taking a lot of hikes, and GUESS WHAT??? Spring has Sprung! The California wildflowers are OFF THE HOOK this year. And the variety!! 

  • Dogwood 2017 – Old Things I Love


    February 25, 2017 – Howdy! If you’ve been following along, you know in 2016 I participated in the Dogwood 52 Week Photo Challenge, one photo a week on an assigned topic, and since I’m a writer, I added the additional challenge of writing a weekly blog post about the image made. Whew. This year, I’m giving myself a break. Although I’m participating in the Dogwood 2017 Advanced 52 Week Photo challenge, I’m going to focus my writing on what matters… my novels.

  • Week 37: Portrait Fashion


    September 14, 2016 – Sometimes the Universe perfectly aligns and the photo challenge drops into my lap, like this week’s Portrait Fashion. A fellow moto-girl (and phenomenal photographer) announced her new line of American-Made women’s coveralls (check them out here) so of course I immediately pre-ordered mine and guess when they came? Yep. This week. AND… she asked for a picture of me wearing them. Two birds; one stone. (more…)

  • Week 13: Portrait High Key


    April 1, 2016 – Happy April Fool’s Day! Have I mentioned what a good sport my husband is? Cause he is. No foolin’. He never puts up a fuss when I ask him to model, even though he’s not wild about being in front of the camera.

  • Nine Best Insta Shots of 2015


    January 7, 2016

    I’m totally stealing this idea from my pal GreaseGirl, giving a quick rundown of the year using the Nine Best Insta Shots of 2015 app. (more…)

  • Miss Fisher Addict


    December 30, 2015 – Several years ago, my feller and I got rid of our TV.

    I know, I know, SHOCKING… especially considering I work in television. (more…)

  • Old Stuff   


    December 14, 2014 – Oh hey. What’s happenin’? Me? Not much. Just cleaning out my iPhone photo library. I sense an “old stuff” theme to what I choose to snap, like the above pic of my “old” beat up engineer boots covered in Babe Dust. (more…)
