My very favorite part of the decade has been being in my grandchildren's lives. I have seen all four of my grandchildren enter college and am thrilled to have been a part of their college years, from helping them move in and out of dorms, to helping them with many things they need along the way. It has brought me so much pleasure to have been able to be there for them.

Since leaving The Signal as Publisher in 2004, I have been able to stay a part of the SCV community by working for Inside SCV.

Special Thanks to Ted Dayton
by Jeanna Crawford

I set my sights on Ted Dayton in September of 2005 and by October 2005 we were an official creative team of two. In large part, this magazine is our greatest hits and the product of many "excellent adventures" during our seven-year creative endeavor. Ted is a photographer's photographer. He is technical to the degree of perfection. I learned fast that you don't mess with perfection. He was always looking for the art in the photograph. If we had more space I could narrate the hidden art in our photographs, as he narrated it to me when we created them. I am eternally grateful for the seven years of photographs and memories we made together. Being his "human light stand" was some of my finest work and getting to learn from him as I entered this business was truly a master class. Thank you Ted!

P.S. This headshot is the first thing Ted has shot for us in three years. I'm obsessed that it's a selfie!

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Thank You to our Photography Contributors!

Ted Dayton connected us with William in 2009 and we welcomed him into the family with open arms and never looked back. William and I share a love of sarcasm, cursing and all things Canadian. His new perspective was a welcomed one and in the last six years we have photographed fashion, bridal and athletes together. Since working with Inside SCV, William has been published in numerous wedding blogs including "Style Me Pretty" and "The Knot," became a Panasonic Lumix Luminary traveling the country speaking on photography and is a member of Professional Photographers of America and WPPI.

I have been Eric's official modeling agent since 2007. He has graced our pages for many years with his handsome self. In March of 2013 he worked his way behind the camera and became one of our official photographers. We love the twist of fate that he married another longtime Inside SCV model (since 2009), Sarah, in July of 2013. In March these two very beautiful people had a very beautiful baby boy - welcome to the world Ford! I have been proud to watch Eric hone his craft the last few years and I am pleased to announce the opening of his studio "The Portrait House" in Valencia.

I literally hunted Tara down in March of this year to photograph our prom feature after slightly stalking her for years on Facebook. All I could think of when I met her was, "Where have you been all my life?" She has the innate ability to make everyone feel beautiful and the talent to perfectly capture it. Tara has photographed celebrity weddings and has been published in People Magazine, InStyle and Us Weekly. Tara specializes in senior and teen portraits and opened a Studio in Valencia in April.

Thanks to those who have supported us through the years!
