Wow, it's been nearly two years since my last journal update and nearly that long since I uploaded anything new. Ever since I turned this into mainly a stock photo account I just don't visit here as often. I'm going to try to remedy that and stop by at least once or twice a month. I also want to hold another contest or two in the near future.
Alot has gone on in my life in two years. We moved from Southern California across the country to Virginia. It's been an adjustment and I miss California but Virginia is starting to grow on me as we explore it more. More important than the move is the news that WE STARTED OUR FAMILY!! On our five year wedding anniversary, New Year's Day 2010 at 12:20 am under a blue moon, I gave birth to a wonderful little baby girl we named Nora Maeve. She's the joy of our lives. She's also one of the reasons I want to get this account active again because I'd like to post some of her photos for people to use in their art. I think it would be something fun to add to her memory books.
Anyway, I'm doing well and enjoying motherhood. Hopefully I'll be able to be more active here at DA!
Take care everyone,
Here are a couple of photos of our little Angel Face:
My Stock use rules:
* Everything labeled stock in this account is for use for personal or commercial purposes (including DA prints, Cafepress items, etc.), here at DeviantArt or anywhere else. You do not need permission to use this stock in your art. However, YOU MUST CREDIT ME WHEREVER YOU POST YOUR WORK CONTAINING ANY OF MY STOCK AND SEND ME A LINK TO WHERE YOU HAVE POSTED IT. I will favorite, comment, and occasionally feature your art containing my stock, here at DA or at my personal journal.
* Please do not take my stock and use it as is or with a simple filter change and claim it as your own original work or redistribute it as your own stock, here or anywhere else. All stock available at this site is MY OWN and I retain copyright to the original photos & art I've posted here, some of which I do sell occasionally.
* I'd really prefer it if you do not use my stock images of people or children to create horror or sexual art. Something a bit gothic or a little creepy is fine, but please don't dose them in blood, show their bleeding hearts,use them in satanic themes or create anything that would be R rated. No overtly sexual or pornographic themes or anything that might be humiliating for the model to be associated with. Contact me if you are worried that your theme might push these limits and we can discuss it.
* I provide stock because I love to take photographs and I really enjoy seeing how other artists can create something unique and beautiful using my photos. I do not ask for payment of any kind. However, should you wish to make a donation of a subscription here or send me something from my wishlist or a copy of the work you've created using my stock I would certainly appreciate it.
