Not only is she a talented singer & actress but extremely beautiful. Britt is definitely going to go far in this world and I am thrilled to be a part of her dream!

Bridal Portraits: Kim Dowdy

This beautiful bride is my new sister in law, Kim Dowdy. Kim & I got together before the wedding to take her bridal portraits. They were shot in Blacksburg, Virginia at St. Mary's Catholic Church. With the wedding being over I can finally show you these beautiful photos. Kim looked stunning!

Galati Family

Hello all! Sorry I haven't been very up to date on this blog. I have been working on some side projects. I was privileged to spend the day with Beth Galati and her beautiful family. I met Beth at my current Church- Aletheia. Beth is an amazing woman of Christ & mother of four who has inspired me greatly. The portraits were taken in Mt. Jackson, Virginia. We had a blast. I hope you get a little taste of what this awesome family is like!

Mommy's kisses are the best!!

All of Beth's children adored their mommy.

The kids had on the cutest outfits from J Crew.
Great choice Beth!

Taking time to reflect.

Cutest kids ever!

This family couldn't have made the day more fun. Thanks guys!

Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

I was told Starbucks had a rival here on the West coast- Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. You KNOW I am a LOYAL customer of Starbucks but eh, I gave it a shot. Well heres my review : The customer service blew me away, tons of friendly people. The iced hazelnut latte with soy was much better then Starbucks. Now, the Green Tea Frap was a big thumbs down, you know where my heart stands :-) Great experience - hit it up if you are on the West coast.

In & Out

I finally made it to In & Out Burger. We don't have this on the East coast so going here was quite a treat. My aunt informed me that everything there is made on the spot, fresh. Mmmmm. I was really dig'n the fries. They weren't too greasy, very soft. The coolest little secret was on the bottom of the drink cups- John 3:16- For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. Pretty spiffy.

John 3:16

Thumbs up, good stuff!

This face is priceless.

Mission accomplished.

Orange County Fair

As most of you know I am a HUGE fan of fairs. I absolutely love the energy, vendors, petting zoos and yes you guessed correctly - FUNNEL CAKES AND HOMEMADE LEMONADE. I waited all year for these two amazing food items and sadly did not get them on the 4th of July (the vendor ran out and nearly broke my heart). Being in California I went to the Orange County Fair and FINALLY got my funnel cake and lemonade. Not only did I get what I waited for all summer but I also got to hang out with some amazing people. Thanks Lauren for having me, I enjoyed spending time with you, your brother, and sister!

Worms eye view - welcome to my life. Btw, the
lemonade was fantastic!

Dream come true.

The big cheese. Woo hoo.

You are looking stunning ladies!

Mad skill.

Craft time! Oh I miss those days...

Best tea party ever, should of been there for this one.

This little tike was looking to feed some animals
at the petting zoo.

This lady was so cute with a rad style. Loved her!
