less social media. more life.

as of march 1, 2014 i will no longer be using facebook, google+, or instagram. i will still be on twitter and here of course. in my ongoing quest to simplify my life i have decided that less is more. when i first started your waitress i, like everyone else, felt that it was important to join everything that came along. today i feel that it is more important to take as many pictures as possible, stay in touch with friends and family in a more meaningful way, and to reduce my time on the internet. i am still here and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon.

thank you to everyone who has supported me through the years on all the social networks. i appreciate all of you!


the smoker. free print giveaway.

to start the new year off right, i am giving away this print of one of my favorite images, the smoker, san francisco, 2006. it is a 5x7 digital print from a 35mm negative in a sealed, signed 11x14 mat. 

there are four ways to enter: either retweet this tweet on twitter, like/comment on this post on facebook, <3/comment on this post on instagram or use my contact form. if you chose to enter on twitter, facebook or instagram you must be a follower of your waitress on that network to enter. one entry per person please, but you can spread the word as often as you like! the winner will be chosen at noon on friday, january 25, 2013 and contacted immediately after.

good luck!
