Belle or Bruin

He was a funny, bearded Boston transplant and a huge Bruins fan.  She was the quietly cool, artistic type who knew the words to every Disney song and openly admitted Belle from Beauty and the Beast was who she identified with most.

Who knew that all it would take was a song for their lives to change and I’d be there to capture every magical moment.

Now this beautiful family is celebrating their future edition and you  can only wonder what their precious bundle will be!

Beaches

“The Voice Of The Sea Speaks To The Soul.”

One of the most beautiful sites in Pensacola are the beaches.  Regardless what side of town you live on, a sandy waterfront view is just a short drive away.

This is one of the things that makes our area an attraction to visit and a desirable place to live.   Beaches aren’t just a great place to bask in the wonderful Florida rays.  They can also be places of great peace.

Some days  listening to the Emerald waves crash against platinum sandy beaches is all it takes to relieve your soul of the rough ride of life.  So take a moment to enjoy a blissful moment on your way home and let it wash away the worries of the day.

While you’re at it, schedule your own serene beach session today!

Voyage To Joy

“To learn to play, seriously, is one of the great secrets of spiritual exploration.”~ Rachel Pollack

Children are natural explorers. They see things with fresh, uninhibited eyes that savor and revisit their experiences often.  Working with these little adventurers reminds me that even though I have lived a while, I am not always living.  As an adult, I often forget what it means to just be in the moment and especially, how to re-visit those moments of sheer joy.

The little ones I work with and others who are in my life, remind me that life is a quest, but not one which the final destination is most important.  This voyage is more about the steps, the inventing and reinventing yourself as you connect with others on similar paths.

So push yourself with open eyes.  Smile at the gifts around you and enjoy the view as you climb the mountains of life.

Family Is Important

Family means different things based on who you are.  In mixed groups, personal definitions could mean anything from direct blood relatives to those whom you’ve acquired unique, close bonds with.

For me, the both are true.  Growing up in a military home, I learned first hand that limiting “family” to just genetics doesn’t always work.  Sometimes you have to rely on those who’ve earned your trust by being committed to the mutual success of all involved.  They start off as friends, but gradually through motivational words and inspiring acts, prove to be much more.

Now as an adult serving families similar to my own, I see the struggle of families (especially military ones) even more clearly.  Remaining united and strong happens with constant communication, plans for visits, and (thanks to technology) video chatting.  So as you like that IG post, watch the latest Snap, or “react” to the last Facebook message, remember family is important no matter how you define it.

When You’re Busy….

“If we’re not meant to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge?”

I may not know who coined that quote, but for me it’s oh-so true.  With so many things changing and “Life” in general happening being busy has new meaning and I’ve started evaluating what I agree to more  uniquely.

Even though saying “No” to things whether it’s because they aren’t really my style or due to time constraints is something I’m doing more often, I’m still finding my calendar decorated with so many things I’ve said “Yes” to.  While there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, it does equate to late nights, but hey, I like a good challenge.

After taking a vacation and enjoying myself soaking the rays and waves of Hawaii, the term “late nights” really hit home, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Since being back, I’ve shot a wedding, community events, families, and started planning my next endeavors.  So I guess being “busy” is definitely worth it when it’s for something you love.

Love Is

I’ve had the opportunity and fortune of celebrating all kinds of events for many of my clients.  Birthdays, new babies, engagements, and weddings.  I could never say what my favorite is, but the uniqueness of every event keeps me coming for back for more.

Especially weddings.  They certainly take a lot of work and effort to pull off a bride and groom’s vision, but capturing the memories of two hearts making the conscious decision to become one is definitely a moment to be cherished.

Let me be there to capture your next special moment!  Packages are available for every celebration, call 207-632-7701.
