my here today

I have something that I didn’t expect to happen in my lifetime, I have a family, extended and enlivened by those around us, that makes me feel like the most special woman in the world and I get to do what I love, with friends who support me and peers who enrich me. I am so blessed and I refuse to take it for granted even for a moment!

Heres just a few pictures of my Bean, we had the weather this last week so every chance we got we used it, kite flying and puddle jumping at the top of our list!

Jumping was just as much fun as watching the kite!

His hair is as long as mine! He says he wants to grow it down to his butt lol.. we’ll see how long it gets, but it’s totally up to him, I love it.

I’ll be away for a few days hosting not one but TWO OneLight Workshops. Zach Arias (check out his new blog it’s great) will be here and I won’t be as available as I usually am (I’ll try to check my email and get back but may do a lot of catchup on Friday). Please know that if you have questions or want to book your wedding I’ll be in touch with you as soon as I can!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.


Sharing my latest work both personal and commercial. Leave a comment or say hello :)
