Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW BLOG!


You know that feeling when you were a kid and it was time to open Christmas gifts, but your parents were caught up in a myriad of other “important” things? When I was six years old, a cup of coffee was not as important as opening the shiny packages, nor was waiting for my mother to find the right size trash bag to throw away the wrapping paper…apparently, my mother cared more about her living room remaining tidy than the sample Avon perfume that awaited her under the tree.

You know that feeling? Well, I’ve been feeling like that for the past few days.

The amazing and talented Brock Martin from Infidesign has been working diligently on my blog for the past couple months and I’m truly excited to see his hard work come to fruition. He has been instrumental in creating this blog and I’m truly thankful for all his hard work…words can’t describe how nice, professional, and fabulous he really is! 🙂

The rotating pictures in the masthead were all taken by the painstakingly talented, [b]ecker. He’s so incredibly talented behind the lens that if I didn’t like him so much, I’d hate him based solely on his photographic prowess 😉 Being in front of a camera is quite difficult, but as we roamed the streets of Laguna Beach together, he made me feel nothing but me. Fun, dorky, humorous…like I said, he made me feel like all of me. He’s amazing and I can’t wait to one day pay his kindness forward.

Lastly, I have to thank the remarkable man I’m blessed to call my husband. JD was the nucleus of this blog…he’s believed in my ability to succeed from the first day I ever dreamed out loud of being a photographer. He was the catalyst for my contact with Brock and a cheerleader (the kind with pants, not a skirt!) from the beginning. This blog was actually my birthday gift…and I have to admit, it’s been my most favorite gift ever!

    I was introduced to this blog through Becker’s and I am happy to have found it. Can I just say, if the photography thing hadn’t worked out – which it did and your photos are beautiful – you could’ve been a poet. You articulate incredibly. I have been blown away by both the pictures I’ve seen and the words I’ve read. I wish you knew my husband and I so you could take both our pictures AND write about us. Good luck and I look forward to lots more!

    Jazzy…This is my second comment on this post but my first one was short and sweet and more tooting my own horn than anything. 🙂 So now I am taking a moment to tell you how unbelievably proud I am of you. You are amazing. Your growth and development as a photographer is nothing short of astounding and I am so glad that I have been able to witness it all. You are on your way to making people feel how you felt the day we found your wedding photographer…remember that??? Our jaws dropped. You are so blessed and it’s deservedly so. I will be checking you out from all over the world as you take some amazing pictures this summer. I love you best friend!!!
