Thank you so much Pamela, Khawla, Lorraine, Megan, Sylvia and Adrianna!

Well, to explain, the "Brown-Eyed Girl" is actually Adrianna, my 17 yr old daughter and photog partner. She's worked as a pro for years now shooting portraits, pets and travel photos. She is my "muse" and wields a mean vacuum (thank goodness).

I'd like to thank the Academy, my parents, my agent and publicist... for this award (just kidding)... I am humbled and grateful for all our BetterPhoto friends! THANK YOU!~ #1989473
