Kirk & Jackie | La Playa Carmel, CA Wedding

Kirk and Jackie flew in from Philadelphia to be married in a town that is very nostalgic to Jackie. Jackie grew up visiting her Grandparents and has fond memories with her siblings in Carmel CA. They were married at La Playa Carmel on December 28th 2012.

Their family and friends came along side them to celebrate their union and I quickly noticed how sweet the  relationships are. For the first time, it was hard to get a plain old smiling photo. Lots of laughter, happiness, and enjoyment of each other’s company made for dream photos that produced documentation of their genuine happiness.

Kirk and Jackie thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day, I wish you both the best in this next chapter of your life!

One Step at a Time

Future projects for my business are being worked on and will be presented in the new year! I am thrilled for the next steps and all its mystery. I am ready to be revealed all that the paths and road blocks bring.

I know I am navigating the right map because I am prepared to handle the future mistakes and am ready to work through them to get better, all the while seeing the end vision. One step at a time will take dedication and discipline.

Bring it on.

Baby Sebastian

Sebastian will be here in a month! My really close friend Amanda is the mother of Sebastian and she has wanted to name her son that since elementary school! She persisted on through even when someone said it sounded like a character from a Disney movie…but that’s Amanda. She has her heart set on something and she doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. And I admire her for that.  I have never seen her so happy, and 2 years ago when we had a conversation in my car about life I realized that she is meant to be a Mom. There is so much passion in her voice when she talks about having a baby. I am so proud of her and I am so excited to meet the little guy. We took pregnancy shots when she was about 6 1/2 months pregnant.

Headshots with Meliss.

According to the definition of a prodigy is this: “a child who, by about age 10, performs at the level of a highly trained adult in a particular sphere of activity or knowledge.”

Yes…I sat next to THIS prodigy (you’ll see below) in 7th grade choir and every time I heard her voice it sounded like an angel who came to give me a concert from 1 foot away. This girl became a friend that I sang with, then a friend that I sang and hung out with, THEN a friend that I sang, hung out with, and traveled with… and eventually my best friend! She is constantly performing and auditioning so it was time for her to update her head shots. I felt honored when she asked me to take her photos a couple days after Christmas. Now we are best friends, who sing and travel together while taking professional pictures. I loooove her.

Melissa’s website is and I posted a video of her Patty Laponess like voice at the end of the photos. Trust me you don’t want to miss it!!

My Car

My car broke down. Add some spark plugs and we’re good to go. I’m sitting in the car waiting for Adam and feeling content because I know that success is ahead and I am assured because I know where I am going.

I will not get tired, even when I am set back from where I am heading.
