There are so many changes going on right now. I am in the process of building a new website and blog in between photo shoots and traveling. I will be traveling now until next May. I have trips planned almost every week from now until the end of the year as well. I promise to keep the posts coming. I am traveling for Photography and I am so very lucky to be doing so.

Since this is a photography blog. I give you some pictures from the other night when I went to game 2 of the National League Championship where the Phillies played the Giants. I went with my brother and his two oldest kids. I had no idea our seats were as good as they were when I bought them. We had cheese steaks from Tony Luke’s for dinner. Abby had a hot dog for her Gran (my mom) because my mom gave up her ticket so Abby could go. My mom joked that she only wanted to go for a hot dog. So Abby ate one for her. She also had Nachos and Cotton Candy. I love that girl. We had a great time and the Phillies won!

In the new beach house, the kitchen is purple and red. The entire house minus some bedrooms and bathrooms is painted painted purple. It is bold, it is colorful, it is full of love. At first I wasn’t a fan of all the color but it really does grow on you.

The fabulous knobs in the kitchen. They are from Anthropologie! I knew it was meant to be seeing as that is my favorite store.

A certain relative in Kansas that shall remain nameless gave me some grief about not posting enough pictures of the new house. So far I am posting the kitchen. So here it is:






The kitchen makes me smile every time I think about it. I love that it fits us all. We can sit around all hours of the day and visit. I love that it truly is the center of the beach house. How could someone not smile in this kitchen.

My family started a project last week in memory of my brother Jeff that died last summer. It is called “Project Call Home” and we have a blog up. The mission of this organization is to donate knit hats and new socks to people in need that are struggling with addiction through Protection Point. Please feel free to donate knit hats, regular winter hats, scarves, and socks. We will be adding patterns to the blog for those that want to knit and are looking for a simple pattern. I will be setting up a P.O. Box to mail items to as well. There is a pay pal button on the side bar of the Project Call Home site if you would like to donate money towards supplies.

My mom knit this hat during Babylicious’ nap on Saturday. She has been knitting like crazy. Please leave a comment or email ProjectCallHome at Gmail dot com if you are interested in helping this great cause or even if you just want to leave a kind word. We would love to hear from you. You may also follow the blog by clicking on the Follow Me button in the side bar of the Project Call Home Site. We will be updating regularly.

Happiness is…


AnaisShoesHappiness is Babylicious eating breakfast in the kitchen at the beach house with her Ruby Red Slippers on the seat next to her.


Happiness is the natural light that floods into the kitchen in the early mornings. Sitting around the island eating breakfast and having coffee with my family.

Chasing Sea Gulls!

Happiness is walking to the beach in October when no one is around and chasing sea gulls in your shorts.

Ocean Love

Happiness is swimming in the ocean in your jeans without a care in the world. Giggling as the waves crash into you. Happy to be one with the earth.


Happiness is cousins and the bond that is irreplaceable. My cousins are some of my closest friends. We spent summers at the beach together growing up. We were surrounded by each other and loved every minute of it.


Happiness is the island covered in butterflies. Everywhere you look surrounded by beauty.

Happiness is my family. Without them this place wouldn’t mean nearly as much.


I added this to the 10.10.10 group on Flickr. I hope you took a picture today. If you did you should share it. Leave a comment and I will come and check it out.


October 10th, A most auspicious day

Noor aka Snowman White is the 5 year old in my life. She is the middle daughter of my sister for all that don’t already know. They just moved back to the states from Africa in June and live about 5 hours from me. I try and travel to VA Beach about once a month. Not too bad considering they live near the beach, they are super cute, and always excited when I come for a visit.

So I was here when Noor got off the bus. She was so excited…

I committed to post 3 -4 times a week and today is post 2  in 2 days and I decided to incorporate my favorite 2 year old in the signature 2 year old dress. I am in VA beach visiting my sister and her babies.  It is so nice to have them back in the states and so close to home.

Anais also known as Babylicious turned 2 back in July. Katy also had her youngest Clover turn two. She made this incredibly adorable dress for her. She was kind enough to sell some in her Etsy Shop and I knew the perfect two year old for it. Katy is amazing with a camera, a sewing machine, and incredibly talented in so many other ways. She is the mother of 5 little girls. She is truly one of the luckiest ladies in the world. A house full of beautiful girls, seriously life doesn’t get much better than that.

So here is my photo documentation of Anais in her incredible C(Love)r Dress!






The 2 is shaped in to hearts and the buttons are Katy’s signature green. Incredibly well made and I am in love with it, along with the 2 year old who is modeling it.
