Many, many things have happened since my Vacation to California. Several exciting and some unfortunate learning experiences.

However the the most important and life changing that has happened has been my decision on where to move and I picked Las Vegas, Nevada. Yep, the last several months I've been deciding, planning, researching, finding where to live and of course packing. It had and has been a whirlwind of changes and each and every one of them I am proud and happy I made.

So now I am in Las Vegas, Nevada starting a new chapter and most definitely loving the weather. I have moved in with two incredible roommates who also took the chance on their dreams to come out here and start fresh.

I've also met another friend who has been inspiring to jump start my career. Granted it took 2 months to calm down from being in the (twiddle my thumbs) desk job I held back in Pennsylvania to, as my roommates put it, a "stay-cation". It took a little bit to get motivation up b…

I stopped A LOT when driving along the Pacific Coast Highway. It took me several hours to get up to Monterey. It was a great Drive!

When on Vacation in Los Angeles California I had the opportunity to go to the Getty Museum... 100% incredible place to go! My photographic eye went wild... ;)

Solo Photo vacation Part 1

I haven't written in a Very long time and again, again, and again, have been trying to start a new trend with myself to write more often. I've been through ALOT these last few years and big decisions are being made as I write this.

My photography will still be my number one motivator in career, but where I'll be doing it will be defining my decisions and new adventures.

Hence my solo Vacation.

I wanted to go on vacation to see several things, to research possible moving destinations, see who I am and how I handle myself on my own in a foreign State (away from family) and to get off my ass and go on vacation. I mean, really, who says you can not go on vacation by yourself... I go to the movies on my own when I really want to see a movie, I go out to eat so why not a Vacation... Who says you have to be with someone to do something you want to do? I've heard it all since planning it and one of the top questions... "You are going by yourself?!?" "that is bold!&…

Happy 2009 Year!

I am back and ready to kick 2009 to another level!

Happy New Year to all!

It was a long rocky road in 2008 and I believe I came out with a more positive, hopeful and grateful to have learned all that I did attitude and again ready to get focused on the things I want to accomplish. There are several, several goals to achieve and I am not stopping until I persevere. ;)

Since I've skipped several entries - I just wanted to get back into the swing of things and start off by showing some photos I did last year of the last three Weddings I did of the year.

First was my Beautiful Step-sisters Wedding.

Amy and David had a beautiful and unique Wedding, due to the fact it was the first I ever did in someone's backyard. What I loved about it, was that she had it outdoors (always love natural lighting - best lighting there is). Second after the ceremony, instead of the typical seed throwing, bubble blowing crowd marital acknowledgment, she had everyone let balloons fly up into the atmospher…
