i get a little de-motivated sometimes when i see somebody effortlessly do something that i know is crazy hard – but when i look at kimberly snyder do yoga it’s the exact opposite. i’ve seen kimberly do yoga a few times, and i know the poses she does are crazy hard to do, but she makes them look so tranquil and smooth that it’s really inspiring and motivating. like, it really makes me want to take time out of my day and do yoga. most days, i get so busy and caught up in photography that my personal hygiene takes a hit, my fingernails get long and i forget to eat and blah blah… basically what i’m saying is that kimberly makes me want to find time that i don’t have and do something good for my skateboard-battered/horribly nourished body. and speaking of nourishment, if you want to find out what kind of fuel she burns in her jet-fighter-like body, she shares her knowledge as a certified clinical nutritionalist in a health-and-beauty blog at kimberlysnyder.net. somethin tells me that my daily dose of those extra dark “le petit ecolier” cookies (is anybody else addicted to these things like i am?) are scarce found on the pages. but some tasty, less artery clogging options like cyan pepper immunity tea, kimberly’s raw pecan love pie, and banana soft serve with raw fudge sauce are all over that sucker. plus there’s tips on how to keep your skin, nails, hair and pretty much your whole body healthy. check it out.

you know when bugs bunny took a wrong turn at albuquerque and ended up in the south pole with the abominable snowman guy? well samantha probably felt the same way. she was brand new to the city and got lost right out of the subway. it was pretty cold out – like 36 and raining. it wasn’t CRAZY cold to me, but it was cold enough. turns out that samantha is from a really warm part of australia and she had never felt weather that cold in her life (36 is 2.2 celsius, for all of you metric system people. i wish america would get on that metric system business soon. when i was a kid, my teachers would always tell us that we’d be using the metric system when i was an adult. whatever happened to that jive?). the poor girl was freezing so we took her inside, wrapped my puffy jacket around her and sat her next to the heater. i think she was basically freezing throughout the whole shoot, but she never complained and made freezing look pretty.

remember when pee wee herman gets picked up by mickey, the escaped convict, as he was hitchhiking to the alamo in texas; and how when pee wee was driving he started seeing those crazy road signs (<– starts @ 8:15 of this link)? well, esther baxter has curves like THAT, and the world knows it. esther, aka: ms freek-a-leek, has appeared in about a million music videos and magazine covers to show her stuff to the drooling masses – but soon she’ll be showing the world that she’s a lot more than a pretty face and a body that would make you wanna slap yo mama. look for some big things to be happening with esther real soon-like.
