I am so excited to share my daughter’s 10th birthday celebration and her Hip Hop styled fashion shoot in the middle of Times Square New York City! Believe it or not, I’m the mother of a 10 year old.  I don’t know how it happened, but it happened.   In keeping true to my way of […]

This shot was taken on my living room floor, next to a window.  Our simple surrounding created something stunning.  It’s her birthday, and every year she picks the theme and I shoot it.  We finished up this shoot in about 2 minutes.  After the second shot, I showed her the back of the camera and […]

I had a pretty crappy start to my week. For the past 3 years of living in our home “on the mountain”, we have owned 2 cars that fit perfectly in our garage.  My husband decided that we needed a big truck to haul things since we live in the woods.  He parked that big […]

I will always remember the huge glass cookie jar at my grandmother’s house in Baltimore.  During the holiday’s, it would be filled with crispy & thin sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies with walnuts, and crumbling peanut butter cookies, marked with the crisscross pattern placed there by a fork before baking.  Thankfully, no one in my […]

Every year, my daughter’s school holds an amazing trunk or treat event for Halloween.  This is the first year I have remembered to NOT schedule a session so I could participate.  My husband took our daughter last year, so I was trying to pick his brain for our trunk theme.  As soon as he said, […]

I’m showing off my little guys today, Hooper & Tanner, for National Dog Day!

    This was quite the experience!  We should all feel a little beautiful when putting ourselves out there for the world to see.  Definitely the most makeup I have ever worn, and as I get older I’m noticing I have to use more of it.  I have been really interested in glamour/fashion photography for […]

Happy New Year!  I honestly can’t believe that we are already into 2015. We usually keep it pretty tame at our house on NYE.  The night usually involves mismatched pj’s, ponytails and good wine.  This year we decided to ditch our pj’s and glam it up.  I had a ton of good chocolate left over […]

I have this knack in the kitchen for making up recipes and having them turn out completely edible. I am no way the next Top Chef, but no one is starving in our household. One thing I’m really good at is making up recipes that are hacks. I have a very short attention span so […]

We moved to a mountain. First of all, I am a city/beach girl. Maybe it’s an elevation thing, but I like being near sea level. Somehow, my husband convinced me this would be an awesome move for us. It could have been the five or six vineyards within 5 miles of the house that convinced […]
