It’s the time for LOVE SWEET LOVE!

So I finally have a break to post a few sneak peeks from an engagment shoot I did 2 weeks ago! This shoot was super long and super cold but super fun. The bride-to-be is a dear friend that I cheered with in highschool (yes, I used to be a cheerleader. #CHEERNation #forlife #thisisntTwittersowhat ) and she’s getting married this spring! I’m very honored and thankful that she came to me to capture their journey in love!

Well, without further ado…here you go!

ps. don’t you just LOVE the vintage concept !!

Peace & photos,

Hello party people! I am SO beyond excited because with the help of you (my clients) and some web hosting knowledge from one of my closest friends/colleagues I know officially own! After 3 years of having an official online site I FINALLY have my own domain! For some this may not be a big whoop, but when you go from having like a billion words in your free-domain name to something simple and sweet — it makes a WORLD of difference! It’s easier to find AND remember (which is exactly what I want). I’m still updating my portfolio, but make sure you check me out RIGHT after reading this!

In other photography news….well not much. haha Since I’ve been named the Creative Director of Our Success Magazine (not sure if I’ve told you guys yet or not, but if not you know now) and contributing for WEEN, my photo shoot booking has been spread out. I usually shoot on weekends now (a few during the week) so my available dates are going fast for Spring 2013. I just recently shot engagment photos for one of my highschool cheer mates (I’ll post a few sneak peeks in the coming weeks) and I’m gearing up to shoot her wedding in April! Also in two weeks I’ll be covering the baby shower of a family friend which should be SO much fun because mom is having TWINS!!!

I’ll be trying to fit some test shoots in and MAYBE have a summer special soon…so keep your eyes peeled!

Peace & Photos,

Writing, Writing, Writing Day and Night!

Hey guys! This new year has literally been a blur so far! I’ve been working hard interviewing powerful women in entertainment for WEEN (Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network) and show no signs of slowing up! Since this is one more thing sopping up gravy on my plate, I don’t have AS MUCH time as I used to for personal test shoots. BUT I am still taking care of my customers!

Just this past weekend I had a 2 1/2 hour shoot with a newly engaged couple! It just so happens that the bride-to-be is a high school friend of mine! We went from cheering toogether, to working together! Go figure right?! Needless to say, Amelia and her fiance are definitely looking like they made the right decision in getting married. They are funny, unique, and you can tell that no one else in the world would “get them” but the other. Ahhh beautiful love. I’ll have some sneak peeks up for you soon.

In the meantime, check out my WEEN interviews so far:

1) Valeisha Butterfield-Jones – entrepreneur, HASAN-Russell Simmons, Obama Admin. National Youth Vote Director

2) Sabrina Thompson – fmr educator, jewelry/clothing designer, Survivor One World Runner-Up
