My niece turned 8 years old yesterday. Every single year, she never ceases to amaze me. The moment I held her in my arms for the very first time was a moment my life changed forever. From that point on, things mattered. What I did mattered, because there was this sweet little face looking up at me and eyes watching everything I did. I wanted to do good and somehow try to give the same love back that I felt now that she was in my life. In this past year alone, I have seen Madi go through so many changes. She has rolled with the punches and embraced the blessings. I watched her become a big sister and have never been so proud. Seeing her take care of, welcome and love Annabelle leaves me amazed. I look at the two of them, and can not help but see a spitting image of my big sissy and me. :) Happy birthday Madelyn Grace. You truly are my ray of sunshine.
In one day your entire life can change. April 27, 2012 I was there to welcome my niece into this world. I could not have been any more proud of my sister. She was an absolute rockstar. This is just a little sneak peek, because I’m saving the really good ones for the BirthStory….I’d sit here and write some more….but sorry guys, I have a baby to go visit!!! :)
Love at first sight looks a little something like this…..
A couple behind the lens shots from last weekend’s Destination wedding in Destin, Florida that I was beyond excited to second shoot for Becker! Can’t wait to share a few images from this wedding!! As always, a big thank you to [b]! :)
Travel and Photography. They are two things that I not only love, but I feed off of. Despite the mood I am in, no matter how tired or sleepy or overworked I may be….as soon as I show up for my client, and that camera is in my hand, by the release of the first shutter click, I am alive. The adrenaline starts pumping and immediately, I am revived, excited, and inhaling creativity with each breath I take. That is how I am doing exactly what I was meant to be doing in this life. The same energy seems to start each and every time I travel to a new corner of the world. As soon as I am able to drop off my suitcase, I begin to explore. No plans, no expectations, and no idea of where the day is going to take me. It seems that my best ideas often come to me during my travels. When I shoot and when I am traveling, my mind clears the clutter. Nothing else lies between me, my camera, and the world and people I see through it.
Here is a sneak peek of the upcoming destination engagement session that brought me to a place near and dear to my heart…..Dallas, Texas. More to share very soon!
Got to check out the G.Love and Special Sauce show at The House of Blues in LA last night with Becker. 3rd time seeing these guys…..Their shows never disappoint! Highly recommend catching a show at the House of Blues and seeing G.Love!
