I have always been fascinated by photography. I have spent countless hours studying photographs of people, while considering the angles, the lighting, and the editing the photographer used. I love the fact that photography has the amazing ability to transport us to a different time, or place with one single shot.
It was not until I started blogging that I decided to take photography more seriously. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of my apartment, of friends, and family. It was after experimenting in this way that I realized my passion for photography. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I realize that passion can open your eyes to the impossible, so not only did I invest in the proper equipment I also spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to enhance the skill it takes to be proficient with this passion.
I enjoy, and appreciate the opportunity to photograph bloggers, couples, influencers who make an impact in their profession, families, and also lifestyle type setting. I take an individual approach to each person I photograph. I make every effort to embrace and highlight the focus of what they are trying to convey to their audience with each session.
I look forward to working together and capturing the potential magnificence of your moments through my eyes and the lens of my camera.

What a Labor day weekend! Getting to celebrate my mother and her birthday in such a spectacular place was amazing! We had so much fun and created life long memories! It was a super quick trip so I packed two nice outfits and the rest really comfortable. My style revolves around comfort so when I am traveling this is extra important. My go-to accessories? Baggy t-shirts, over-sized shorts, and my Tods. The Tods were a gift from my sweet sister-in-law (shout-out to Steph). I originally wondered if I could pull off such a shoe but have quickly become quite a fan! I even just purchased a new snazzy pair yesterday (thanks to the sweet hubs).
I bought my first pair of loafers during a trip I took to London in 2005l. I loved them when I was over there but got home and never took them out of the box once. They weren’t near as comfortable as I remember and just weren’t “me.” Now, I can’t stop wearing the look! Loafers used to have quite a preppy connotation to them but in today’s style, they are more of a relaxed look, a, “I rolled out of bed today but wanted to look semi put together.” Which let’s be honest, is my everyday morning! Since I can’t seem to wake-up in enough time to look cute everyday, this outfit is on repeat. It is very comfortable and practical now and will be a great transitional look into fall!
On another and very exciting note – my new site is almost complete!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please don’t be alarmed when you come here and it says, SO THEN THEY SAY! Let the countdown begin!!!!!!

Happy Memorial Weekend everyone! I hope you have fun plans for the holiday weekend! Mine is extra special this year as I get to celebrate the greatest woman I know, my mother, and her 60th birthday. My family is full of golfers so it was always normal for her and my father to travel to play at Pebble Beach, California. It is one of her favorite places on earth and she always jokes that Pebble Beach is where she wants her ashes spread (not going to happen). She loves it that much! If you were to ask her, what her one dream in life would be, it is always to take her family to all play Pebble Beach together. So for her 60th birthday, that is exactly what my dad is doing. He planned a surprise trip (she knows now) to Pebble Beach! After a year of knowing about this trip we are all very excited to get there, make life long memories, and most importantly to celebrate the woman who has given us everything!
Since I am heading the the airport in the next 10 minutes I thought I would show a quick “chill” outfit that I am planning on wearing to explore the nearby city, Carmel. I have been l-i-v-i-n-g in this look! Maybe because I am really proud of my diy efforts with the distressing or maybe it is because it is ridiculously comfortable! The outfit is perfect for shopping, running errands, going to lunch, ect. If you need a comfortable look – try this! Buy or grab your husbands oversized shorts, throw on a t-shirt, and braid your hair! Voila, it is a complete look!
Have a very safe Labor day weekend!!! xx
