Albuquerque Home Show

It’s a w-i-n-d-y day in Albuquerque; I can hear it howling outside my window. We’ve got a tiny toy poodle which I’m keeping my eye on everytime she goes outside; I don’t want her to end up in Santa Fe. I, for one, am not a fan of the wind, especially when setting up for a show. Thankfully, the set up for the Albuquerque Home and Lifestyle Show was completed yesterday, well before our twister strength gusts showed up.

The Albuquerque Home and Lifestyle Show is a fabulous event where anyone interested in remodeling their home can come and get ideas. We think one of the best ways to change the look of a room is with a piece of Frank Frost Wall Art.( of course ) We’ve participated in the event for the past several years and offer a fantastic deal to anyone attending the show:

The show runs through tomorrow, so if you’re brave enough face the wind, come down to the NM Expo and check us out:

Jumper


Saw the movie Jumper tonight with the family. Going to the movie was a last minute idea, and Jumper just happened to fit our movie criteria:
1.appropriate for all members of the Frost family
and
2. it hadn’t started yet.

Unbeknownst to us, the author of the novel on which the movie is based was in the audience. He’s from Albuquerque, go figure, and had quite the entourage attending the movie with him. Although I’m a voracious reader, science fiction isn’t the genre I reach for first, so the rest of the family was able to sit back and enjoy the movie without worrying that I would ruin it by uttering things like: “That’s not how it happened in the book,” or, “Why did they cut that part out?”

Without giving away plot or ending, the movie focuses on the character of David, a young man with the gift of teleportation. He can teleport, or “jump,” anywhere on the planet, which got me thinking how great that talent would be in the field of photography. Photographing weddings would be a piece of cake. (no pun intended) No longer would you need to take backup cameras and extra equipment on location- if you needed an extra reflector or spare batteries, you could just zip to the studio and back in a flash. (really, these puns are just happening) No location would be off limits. You could photograph a 4pm session in London and be back in time for dinner.

Just thinking…

The NEW WEBSITE…finally

I have come to the conclusion that the birth of a new website is much like the birth of a child: months of waiting until the final push at the end to get the thing “out there.” Once it’s in the world, however, all the pain and misery is forgotten as you revel in this beautiful new creation.

A HUGE shout-out to Jeff at NMIA (New Mexico Internet Access www.nmia.com) for all of his help and patience. You know, there are a lot of companies out there who are more than willing to host your site for pennies a day, but you’d have to drag me away, kicking and screaming, from NMIA. They are a company who is there for you 24/7. Jeff never once played on my “website ignorance” and he was just as kind at the last call as he was the first. In my opinion, customer service is EVERYTHING and that is exactly what you get with NMIA.

So, welcome to the new site. Feel free to email me with comments or suggestions, and ENJOY!

Selfless Seniors-Doing Good




As I write this entry, Frank is at Manzano High School giving a press conference with APS and 26 well-deserving high school seniors. For the past year, we have worked with Monica Armenta and Albuquerque Public Schools Education Foundation, to bring a program called Selfless Seniors to life. We wanted to design a program that gives kudos to kids who “do good” on a regular basis; kids who make a difference in the lives of others but have never been acknowledged for their contribution.

It is has been an incredible journey.

We photographed over 26 seniors-2 from each high school, and their images along with a short bio will be on display all over town during the year. I was floored when I heard some of their stories. They have risen above their circumstances with nothing but determination and it is a joy to see. One of the Selfless Senior girls commented to Monica, “You know, I never thought anything like this would happen to me. I’ve tried all my life to be good and do the right thing and no one has ever recognized it. “ Wow.

This is going to be an annual event and Frank and I are thrilled and honored to be a part of it. I think he could do without speaking at the press conferences, though. As Frank says, “I am much more comfortable behind the camera.” He wouldn’t miss it, though.

The displays will be appearing all over town, and if you’re fortunate enough to know one of these Selfless Seniors, thank them for being amazing! They are an inspiration to all of us!

So, This Is What Happens…


Photographing weddings is a glorious thing. It’s the birth of a new family; the beginning of a new life. Now, when that family adds a family member, it’s love x 3. Aimee and Ryan are two such people. Their wedding took place in Santa Fe several years ago and, as evidenced by the pictures, their love for each other spilled over and filled the entire day with laughter. The funny thing about love, though, is it’s rarely content to just sit around-it finds a way to express itself. In the case of Aimee and Ryan, it expressed itself with a beautiful little tow headed darling. Amiee and Ryan live in Florida and were in town visiting when they gave us the honor of photographing their beautiful family.
