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.
We are off! The hubs and I have started our adventure for the summer- hitting six cities and four countries in less than three weeks! Call us crazy but while we still have the opportunity (no kids nor responsibility) we want to take full advantage! I honestly am giddy at the fact that I get to travel so much this summer! I know one day I might not have this option to travel as often so I want to bask in and fully appreciate the times I do get to travel. Seeing new cultures and making memories with my husband is by far one of my favorite things to do – call it my happy place! So if you have the opportunity I hope you grab it – don’t over think it just, “book a ticket, and leave.”
While I am gone the blog will be updated daily but if you want more M.A.S. (hopefully you do) follow along on Instagram (@masfashion) with the #MASfashiontravels
Okay, so usually I am guilty of this but this week, not so much! Last year, while returning some wedding gifts to William and Sanoma I stumbled upon this beautiful book labeled, Superfood Smoothies. I was intrigued. After flipping through the pages, I bought it and was giddy on the way home. Was this my year to be healthy? To finally get on track and do right by my body? Turns out, no. After a year of marriage, many delicious meals and wine, and a few extra unwanted pounds I still had not touched my Superfood book. For one – I couldn’t find the ingredients. Kroger doesn’t carry maca powder? Who knew? And two, I was way too busy enjoying married life to worry if I was getting enough greens. Well ladies and gents, after a few days of running and one rather expensive trip to Whole Foods, I am ready to tackle this whole thing they call, “healthy eating.” Which, might I add, I have never been good at. I have always loved a good cocktail and a great meal – two things that aren’t your friend as you get older. thank you age!
After flipping through the book I was a bit skeptical of the receipts. With titles like “Cookie Dough” and “Chocolate Mocha” how on earth could this be good for you? I was pleased not to see a huge portion of the book dedicated to kale, spinach, and other greens. I am not one for massive amounts of greens combined with other foods that I would never consume whole, let alone blended together. I think that is why I bought this book, because I saw a lot of “chocolate something.” My expectations were high because in my mind if you call something “cookie dough,” it better damn well taste like cookie dough. I know it wasn’t made with real cookie dough and a smoothie with dates, pear, maca, and cocao will probably not be identical to cookie dough, but I at least expect it to be close. And how annoying is it when you put in all of the effort to – buy the products, cut them up, blend them together, and then bam, your smoothie taste like S*%$. For one who hates cooking, it is probably the worst feeling in the world.
Okay, so let’s chat Superfood Smoothies. You know all of those complaints I had above? None of those are true. A. the food requires very little cutting or prepping and B. the smoothies legit taste like cookie dough and chocolate mocha. And guess what, they are all made with SUPERFOODS. For those of you, like my husband, who have no clue what a superfood is, let me explain. Superfood – a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being, superfood. So, I get dessert that taste like cookie dough and I benefit my body? Who said this healthy eating was hard? jk. I am on day three and will keep you posted how the rest of the week plays out! For now I am off for a run so I can enjoy lots of wine tonight! I told you I wasn’t very good at this. cheers!
This entire week I have had a tough time sleeping which will help explain my lack of blogging. It was one of those weeks where I just could not get it together. Instead of throwing up random posts I decided to take a bit of a break. Since B will be at the Masters I plan on catching up on some much needed R&R. Most of my friends are also out of town so I will be spending the next few days enjoying my own company. I absolutely love “me” time and think it is so necessary every now and then. I think I might even splurge on a little massage + a nice dinner. I mean how often do we treat ourselves? Not enough in my opinion and I think it is important for our mental health – or that is what I will tell the hubs! 🙂
I am excited to photograph a few ideas I have for posts next week (promise I will be back)! In the mean time – I leave you with this sweet and true little “quote Friday.”
