L.O.V.E.-The Cavins

I get so excited when clients are so happy with their portraits they come back for more...especially if they are as cute and wonderful as the Cavin family. When Heather wanted to do a hot and steamy anniversary session at the beach I was stoked! I've been waiting for that crazy couple who were willing to go the extra mile to get this shot...and I found them. Thank you for such a wonderful day. Even with 100 mph winds and cold I still had a blast! :) Happy Anniversary to a Beautiful Couple! I wish you many more years of happiness!

The Jasmin Star Workshop

I think the best thing by far I have done to improve my career as a photographer was attend the Jasmin Star workshop this month. I have stalked this woman's blog like no other for the past year so when I got a seat to this workshop I felt like I just found the golden ticket to the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory! I was so nervous leading up to the big day... I felt like I was going to meet a celebrity, the president or something ... but the minute I walked in I felt like we were old friends. I know that is what her clients love most about her. As she would put it, she is the jelly to my PB&J! Really...she rocked my world. my hopes, and aspirations and finally pointed me into the direction for a successful career. Thank you Jasmin and JD! I can't imagine the feeling you must have knowing you have accomplished so much at such a young age and touched people lives in a way you could not believe! Stay FABULOUS!

Jasmin set up an AMAZING shoot. A BIG thanks to the FAB vendors that made it possible. & to the GORGOUS models Matt & Jodi...

There's just something about this last picture that I screams happiness. Like "weeee, I'm married!" Something I would TOTALLY say!

The Amazing Vendors...

Behind the Lens... (check out Jasmins' rock hard arms! Hot Mamma!)

Diandra Everyday

Attending the Jasmin Star workshop not only brought hope and aspiration to my life but introduced me to some new friends! Diandra and I became fast friends...we have so much in common and share so many of the same goals. She has already accomplished so much and I admire her drive and determination. I know we will grow a lasting friendship because as you can tell by these pictures, she's not only BEAUTIFUL on the outside but the inside as well...

"Feather Her Nest" party design by Tres Bella.

As I have mentioned in a previous post, my dear friend Christina is starting her own party design company and I couldn't be more proud of her! This particular party is themed "Feather Her Nest" designed for a baby shower and I LOVED it! She has such an eye for detail and I know she will go far in all she does. Here are some of the details to this great party design...
