We're Rolling in the Dark!

Get it?  Because of the dice?  Alright, I'll stop.  You guys know I can't resist a good pun.  If you didn't know, I'm actually a part of a Dungeons & Dragons group!  These dice were for our DnD meeting the evening I shot this and I loved how they looked against the Jack-O-Lantern especially with Halloween only being a few weeks away.

So Fresh & So Clean

When I'm not doing photography, I also work part-time doing customer sales and marketing for a company called Maid Right.  I've been working on video tutorials for the cleaners there to use.  This is the first one I've done.  I'm really starting to enjoy doing some videography and hope to make more soon! :)

These 2 Make a Wonderful Pear!

Mmmm chocolate pear with vanilla ice cream sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.  I don't know about you, but I LOVE desserts.  Nothing is ever too sweet or rich for me.  I shot this recently at an Elm St. Grill wine dinner and after it had been photographed, I definitely dove in!

These Earrings are A-mason-ing!

So, that was probably a horrible pun, but I'm desperate for blog post titles on this one.  I was playing around shooting earrings in an organic way.  What do ya think?

Season's Greetings!

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I know that 2016 was a tough year for a lot of people.  For me personally, 2016 was sad because both my Grandmother and my dog passed away :(.  Though that was very hard, I can rest in knowing they are both living a pain free life and that I will see them again one day in Heaven, yes that's right I believe animals go to Heaven too.  God has never let me down and one thing to focus on in this life and in light of a new year is to change your perspective.  You can't always control what happens to you, but you can control your reaction and trusting that God will be there by your side through whatever you may be going through.  Now that I've hopefully given you just a bit of encouragement for the new year, here's some festive photos I took this past Christmas!

"Late November"

Well it's the last day of November and what better way to end a lovely autumn month with a lovely autumn photo.  These are pumpkin pancakes that my dad made our family the day after Thanksgiving and needless to say they were delicious!  Also any Gilmore Girls fans, you may notice my Luke's Diner coffee mug. ;)  One of my good friends gave that to me as a birthday present and I was so excited because that's one of my favorite shows and I happened to be drinking out of this mug the day the Gilmore Girls reunion premiered on Netflix!
