Happy Monday to you! It’s the start of another week, and the end of a GREAT month! Yes, I am a proud Octoberarian! So sorry for the rest of you…
Today is Halloween but I’ve decided to skip Halloween and head straight to Thanks Giving. I’ve been in a very thankful mood lately (having time to reflect on what’s important to me) and I would like to share the reason why. I began this journey somewhat skeptical of what to expect, just deciding to jump in head first and ‘DO’ as much as I can with no end in mind. Well, that decision has been the scariest but BEST decision I’ve made and I’ve done so with absolutely NO regrets!
Though there are many THANK YOU’S to be expressed, I will take this time to say a special one to this cute couple… Warren and Tammy. These two are the lucky parents of Brandon and Caelyn and I think best exemplify my Thankful Theme today. Had I not picked up my camera, I would not have been able to witness this duo in action. After shooting their Pixie Caelyn, I decided to turn my camera on them and was able to EXPERIENCE what you are about to see. Their playfulness, their ease with each other… no wonder they have such a pleasant family!
At the sight of an empty swing, Tammy says, “Lets SWINGGG!”, Warren responds with a laugh and a not too convincing, “You must be mad!” lol. Of course it did not help his case that I was encouraging his wife to do the unthinkable! All in all, they both survived and the swing was left unharmed! lol
I truly had a wonderful time with you both and look forward to more of these moments with and without the camera!
A loving Family.. Priceless!!!
What is it about a baby that makes people melt? I’ll let you ponder this for a moment…
Here is Little Ma’am (Maaahm – as pronounced by her Mother). She graced us with her presence only six weeks ago and already she’s attempting to make her way off of EVERYTHING her mother puts her on! I tell you, it never ceases to amaze me how babies develop so quickly!
Her pure eyes, her warm skin, tiny little fingers… the way she can already track her mother around a room. These I think, give you a great head start to answering that question. What a wonderful start to life Kendall! As I like to say, there’s only UP from here!
Oh my my my… it’s been WAY too long!
Wow, well, as I said in a previous post, I am a perfectionist and when you are a perfectionist doing something new (where you are bound to make mistakes) causes serious trauma! Initially, symptoms begin with odd facial expressions when you THINK something is wrong, then things rapidly progress with the constant talking to yourself, and finally, individuals in such cases may resort to eating their frustrations away scarfing down the nearest loaf (or two) of cinnamon raisin bread from Panera!!! I’m SO GLAD that I can say I’ve steered clear of all but the last two
Anyway, after two weeks of planned shoots, cancellations (thanks freaky tsunami-like weather) and more planning and learning, I am back with much love and excitement for this precious little Pixie! Miss Caelyn!
Caelyn Alexis has made her way into my heart and has become my new best friend! She has the energy that ALL two year olds have and quite appropriately displaces it playing in her backyard, feeding the ducks, and most importantly of all… SWINGING! I was invited into their beautiful home to have a, “Day in the Life of Caelyn” and that time was full of laughs, aweeee’s, and SWINGING! lol
This again is what I LOVE about kids, their expression is PURE, no hard feelings, just pure honesty! Good or bad, these expressions tug at our hearts and build upon themselves to create some of life’s BEST memories!
Tammy, Warren, you both have a beautiful daughter with a wonderful spirit and I can see where she gets it from!
Here’s a quick moment capturing the beauty that surrounds us. These images were taken at the beautiful Butterfly World in Coconut Creek FL. I am often inspired by things like this not only for photos but also in my Interior Design. The colors, the feel; it can all be translated into tangible art and breath taking spaces.
I NEVER thought I would ever say this but… THANK GOD THE WEEKEND IS OVER!!! Why do you ask? Well, lets just say that I found out very quickly that it is EXTREMELY easy for an amateur blogger / website designer to CRASH their own website! In short, I managed to successfully update the look of my site and very soon after, crash it, wipe out my memory, lose my previous posts, then find them, and put it all back together again lol. Trust me, I’ve managed a small miracle in the last two days and I’m soooo happy that it’s all over now (I hope).
On to much better, non-website related things.
One of woman’s dearest things… JEWELS!!! As a continuation of my previous posts on NDC Jewels, I decided to take a snapshot into the mind of the artist; the creativity applied, the care taken, the elements used. Wouldn’t it be a great thing if we could take a look into a particular moment in people’s lives? Think about it. Suddenly, everything starts to make sense and you have a greater appreciation for them and their work.
As always, Enjoy!
Good Tuesday morning to you!
Do you remember my ‘Sneak Peek’ post? Well…. there’s more exciting news to share! Being the over achiever that I am, (no comments please I decided to take this shoot to another level! The previous session was done with the magazine’s article in mind, hi-lighting the Designer and her journey. This session, will be done focusing on the art that is the Jewelry! I just love dreaming up various scenarios for shoots, events and designs! It just brings a whole new life to something that yearns for the recognition. It also allows me to live vicariously through the moment Take a look at the upcoming session’s storyline below!
