Sitting, watching out the window…too cold to feel a single passion.
Dreaming of a kind of Death.
Voices of birds appear suddenly—chanting their spell at me, or Perhaps, not at all.
Take me away from the unknown, for a riddle never sat well in my mind
I told him of my sorrows, for the pain brought upon himself. I spoke a rhythmic sonnet, of lostness. He replied from Robert Frost, “It’s not until you are so lost that you find yourself”… as I look through words of those once lost…another comes to mind, “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” -Henry David Thoreau
Staying true yourself is finding oneself.
Had the pleasure of taking photos for a dear old friend of mine, Skot! He’s out here in LA now ready to kick the door of opportunity open in the acting world. He’s quite an amazing comedian actually (one of those guys that was just born with the “funny”)…so look out! Here are a few shots that I thought were great captures from our shoot today:
February 6, 2015 marks the 1st birthday of my niece Gianna! We celebrated this past Saturday, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.
The theme was The Wizard of Oz, so of course I had to make sure and sew her a custom made Dorothy dress! I’m so happy with the result, and the fact that it fit her just right!
My sister worked hard to make sure all the tiny details of the party were practically perfect. The cake was made by Donne (My brother in law’s mom) who spent so much time dedicated into creating such a magical dessert!
I was so excited to be able to photograph my first cake smash session!!! Gianna wasted no time digging in and smearing it all over the place. It was without a doubt well worth the mess! We all had a blast watching her discover the texture and taste of the cake, she even tried to offer me some at one point. After hosing off her piggy’s and giving her a “tubby time” bath, she dressed in her princess crown and poofy dress for one more photo session—phew! It was a tiring day for the birthday princess (and the family)! I can’t wait to see what exciting things (and photo opportunities) I get to experience with my niece for the years to come. She truly is a joy to be around- full of smiles, laughter, and love!
