When Jack started his paramedic school, back in 2008, he put away all his video
game gear because he knew he wasn't going to have time for
it and didn't want to have any temptations of playing it. Not only was he in a
super intense program but he was also going to be a new father and the few hours
that he did have in between, he wanted to spend with his son.
Years have passed and he just got a xbox for Xmas. To be honest, I wasn't too excited. I
really like having his whole attention on us when he's home, but now that I'm
working from home it’s only fair for him to have something to do while I'm
working. So I just had to get over it!
We made a deal that he would play while I was doing work on the
computer, and be sure to make family time a priority. Sounded good until we
realized that our internet service totally sucks!
If we're on at the same time the internet is extremely slow for me and his game
starts skipping. Funny how things don't work out. Now we'll have to wrestle for the internet!
So it took me forever long to watch a 5 day online workshop.And
by forever I mean a few months! It literally takes one whole day to stream a
one hour video! (This is why I am not a YouTube junkie) It was so much
knowledge to digest and I now know what I need to do to get my photography from
being an expensive hobby to an actual business. She says that branding is a huge
deal, and to choose 3 words that describe your brand. I don’t feel like I’ve
shot enough photos for me to set my 3 words in stone, so I just chose 3 words
that describe me & see if it shows in my photo style; Simple, Silly, & Spicy!
I know its Valentine’s Day & I’m supposed to write something all mushy
gushy… but I’m not. I’ll keep it simple by wishing you all a happy LOVE day
with whoever your Valentine may be; your significant other, friend, child, pet -whoever!
Peace. Love. & Happiness!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
