I had an absolute blast working with this family. The entire gang was totally into having their photos taken (my kind of people)!! Even their adorable puppy, Charlie smiled for a few photos!!! Here's a few of my favorites:

Somehow I've made it to 700 fans on my Facebook page! It feels like just yesterday I was jumping for joy because I reached 200. I have literally learned SO much since I started this little hobby of mine. I want to give a special shout out to all of the people who have supported me since day one and didn't give up on me, even after I posted all those over saturated photos shot in automatic. ;) And to those people who STILL love me even though sometimes I don't get the skin tones quite right, or maybe my exposure is a little off. The thing is, I still have so much to learn and honestly, I'll never stop learning.

happy 24th julian!

Meet my boyfriend, Julian. We've been together since I was 14-years-old. Growing up with him has been the most exhilarating, unpredictable and amazing roller coaster ride! We have been together through thick and thin. He is my best friend, partner in crime, toughest critic and the absolute love of my life. His smile literally melts my heart and makes every shitty thing seem like it's going to be okay. I am convinced that no one in the entire world loves another person as much as I love him. Seriously.

We celebrated his 24th birthday this September in New York City. We grabbed some drinks and dinner, window shopped and of course had a quick photo shoot!

Love you more than words can say, Jules. Can't wait to see what the future has in store for us.

ashley, kim and kristen!

something different

Remember Joshua? I was so excited to get to work with him again because these types of photos are not something I normally do. Joshua's new album is called "I Stand Alone" and he was looking for some photos to reflect the feeling of isolation, solitude, and well, standing alone. It was the PERFECT cloudy day to help set the mood and I am so happy with the outcome of these images. Show some love & check out Joshua's music! Can't wait for the album to come out!
