Want to Help Build a School In Haiti?

Want to help build a school in Haiti? You can help in this amazing goal….and get great photos. I will be hosting a few mini sessions and will be donating the session fee to this great cause. Here’s more information about The School Sessions.

 

What: “The School Sessions is a one-day event across the globe on Sunday, April 12, 2015 to raise $200,000 to build a school in Haiti….$200,000 will buy land and build a ten-classroom school for 220 students”.

Why: “The previous building was destroyed by the 2010 earthquake and these children (ages 3 to 16) are in need of a earthquake and hurricane-proof school to learn and grow”.

Personal: I remember hearing stories of a missions trip that my mom went on when she was a teenager. Haiti was once again on my mind when the 2010 earthquake hit. My friend was actually there on a missions trip when it happened. I’ve had the opportunity to hear many stories of these beautiful people and am excited to be a part of this project.

How: I will be offering special mini sessions on Sunday, April 12, 2015 in Lake Mary, Florida. If you would like to book a photo session, please contact me. I will send you the link where you can donate directly to The School Sessions.

Cost: The entire session fee ($100 donation for a 25 minute session) will be sent directly to this cause. You can purchase a set of specially priced images for only $50. The weekend upgrade (normally $50) will be free of charge on this date as well. You will also have the option to purchase more images.

Share: If you know someone that would love to be a part of this, please share this blog post with them.:)

Book: To book, contact me and I will give you the link to donate.:)

Today Is a Good Day to Have a Good Day!

It’s so easy to get stuck and feel like your best days are in the past. You remember the plans and dreams you have that never seemed to come true. Maybe you wish you could go back in time and relive your “glory” days…when life was full of hopes and dreams. Those days were easy.

But if we really could go back in time, we might see how much we took for granted back then, too.

You know what? You’re not stuck….not unless you decide you are. Maybe you have to change your mind set. Maybe you have to fight for what’s right. Maybe you have to learn more. Maybe you have to wait for a certain time. Maybe you have to go through scary moments. Maybe you have to stop thinking of yourself as a victim. Maybe you have to push through even if you think you can’t make it. Maybe you have to go through emotions. Maybe you have to stop letting emotions control you. Maybe you have to start believing in other people. Maybe you have to start believing in yourself. Maybe it’s not hopeless.

I know that I have an amazing God that I can count on. All those “maybes” can hurt and be confusing. But it’s getting clearer that today is a good day to have a good day. Today is a good day to remember that.

Essential Oil Diffuser – My Favorite Things

Essential Oil Diffuser – My Favorite Things

Life can sometimes be stressful. I used to just ignore some things and hope for the best. But I’ve found some things that have helped me feel more relaxed. Here are a couple of things that I am loving now.

This essential oil diffuser is my favorite thing now! I searched for a diffuser for months. I looked up reviews and asked others what they liked. This one on Amazon kept coming to mind. When I heard that my sister had one, I decided that this was the one for me….because I like to copy her. Lol. It sat in my shopping cart for months. Commitment issues? Lol. When it arrived today, I wish that I had bought it sooner. I love this! Click on the image to purchase the one I have.

Also, relaxing music or sounds is amazing. Create a playlist, take some deep breathes, and the day seems happier.:)This calming ocean waves video calms me.:)Love playing sounds like this while I work.

What helps you relax? I would love to know. Leave me a comment and I will share another post on de-stressing.:)Also, if you have any essential oil recipes or would like to know what I am using, let me know.:)

Historic Dubsdread Wedding Photographer Gabi and Eric

This couple!!! Love them.  I was thrilled when Gabi first inquired about me photographing their wedding. I first met Gabi when she was a bridesmaid at Amber and Justin’s wedding. I later met Eric at their engagement session and love them both. They could not be nicer.

Historic Dubsdread (wonderful staff and venue!) was a beautiful setting for this amazing couple. Although it was a rainy day, the wedding was amazing.

Eric and Gabi, thank you so much for being a dream to photograph.

I love mother daughter moments on wedding days. There is something so sweet about this.

Gabi and Eric decided not to see each other before the ceremony. They held hands, read love letters, and said a prayer.

 Friends and family came together for this wedding. A light drizzle of rain had us wondering if we would need to move the ceremony inside, but the rain held off.:)

Lake Mary Photographer :: Engagement Session with Megan and Cameron

I had such a great time meeting and photographing Megan and Cameron for their engagement session! One of my super sweet brides had sent Megan my information and I couldn’t be happier about photographing their wedding this Fall.

Sometimes I can’t believe that I get to photograph such amazing people. I am truly blessed. Thank you so much Jillian for the referral.
