Merry Thanksgiving!

There it is... coupons for turkey and stuffing and the radio stations already playing 'Have a Holly Jolly Christmas'. If you look close, you can already see decorated, lit up Christmas Trees in windows!

Holidays are all about family and giving thanks and counting our blessings.
* What are the things that really matter in your life?
* What are the things that matter the most for you?
* Is it the people or is it the material possessions that seem more important to you?

When the time comes for you to leave this world, looking back at your life, would you regret not making more money and accumulating more things or would you regret not spending more time with your loved ones, or making a lasting positive impact on this world and the ones you love?

I hope all of you find good health and lots of love as we round out the rest of 2015! XOXOXO

Gotta love a tripod and a camera with a timer!

Love Is In The Air...

I had the honor of photographing a high school senior, who was only ONE day away from moving into the college dorm. And his cutie-pa-tootie girlfriend tagged along for a few who I had such a great time photographing just a year ago when SHE was a high school senior.

It was a beautiful day, and I came across a quote recently that totally made me think of her. Here goes: "She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”  - Roman Payne

Personal Trainer...Jvon

Meet the lovely, talented and very motivation Jvon. She studied and earned a degree from Stanford in criminal justice, writes screen plays and is embarking on furthering her career in personal training. I hear her boot camp kicks butt, in a good way. 

We had a great time capturing some photos for her promotional materials.

It's fun watching the little one's we love grow up and make friends.

Here are some quotes about "friends"... 

"I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun." - Charles R. Swindoll

"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out." - Walter Winchell

Growing up WAY too fast. 


Sweet girl. 


Her thinking face.

Family time.

I had the honor of spending the evening with this gorgeous FAMILY! We just missed the rain... whew!

I enjoy photographing families. FAMILY is more than blood, and it's more than birthing human beings into the world.

Blood relatives, friends, pets, or a combination of these, FAMILY is a unit that offers the support we need to thrive. Family is where you can be yourself and know you're safe.

Hug the ones you love. Forgive often.
