Honeymoon, Autumn in Las Vegas + Animals & Love

Here is a collection of photos, mostly of me, my mom & Tolga, lots from our honeymoon. We had so much fun when she was here this month. November 2011 has been one of the happiest months of my life, so I’ll celebrate and memorialize it with one more photoblog full of orange, brown, yellow – autumn colors. These are locations in or around Las Vegas. One more blast of autumn love to me, my mom, and my spectacular new husband.

Tolga and I went on a drive in search of a welcome summer breeze in the desert country, and we ended up miles from sweltering Las Vegas.  I was working on my iPad the whole time.

My Dog Loves YouTube

Bambi seriously loves to watch animals on YouTube, so we made her her own channel. Whenever she hears us watching animal videos on YouTube she runs over and begs to get on our laps, this is no joke!

The New Muse of Tolga. Uh oh.

We used to have our own in-house model named Kandice, but she moved to Hollywood and is a rising star now. Follow @Kandice on Twitter here.  Unfortunately for the world, but fortunately for me, now the only resident guinea pig left is ancient, flawed Yours Truly. But he fixes that. See? I don’t really look … Continue reading

Christine Marie photos by Tolga Katas

Tolga was practicing lighting and such with his new Canon 7D, and on a whim said, “Let’s go outside and get some pics.” So I grabbed my puppet Zucchini B. Cornbread – and outside we went.
