Living Insight

We need each other. You need someone and someone needs you. Isolated islands we are not.  To make this experience called "life" work, we've got to lean and support.  And relate and respond. And give and take. And confess and forgive. And reach out and embrace. And release and rely.


One year ago August 10th (also my moms birthday) I was 5 weeks pregnant in the Bahamas shooting a week long shoot for Kawasaki Jet Skis.  Now I am booked with the client again, but this year in Lake Havasu AZ, where my brother lives.  So I will be traveling for a week with Hunter and Morgan to AZ.  My parents, sister and her family from Texas are all going to travel out there the same week, so now I get to travel, see my entire family and earn a few bucks shooting a fun action packed photo shoot for Kawasaki.  Here are a couple of pictures from last years shoot:  

1.  Last year (5 weeks pregnant) on Kawasaki shoot in Bahamas. The actual week I found out I was pregnant. 

2.  One of the jet skis I shot on. There is a helicopter right above shooting this shot.  So cool! 

3.  And me today (the picture I had to take and send to client this week before they agreed to book me, since I did just have a baby).  I AM BACK to pre-baby body weight!!!  Now just got to find time to get in the gym and tone it up!!!  

Maybe I will explore some of my photography on my down time with the jet skiers out there.  

My First Photo Shoot

Okay - here are some pictures from my first photo shoot with people other than my kiddos.

This couple just got engaged (Brad and Lindsay), and are friends of mine. Little Madison is Lindsay's daughter (almost 2 years old). They got engaged over the 4th of July holiday down in Key West Florida, and are getting married in the same spot on December 6th, of this year.

Lindsay and Brad honored me with the pleasure of shooting some engagement photos of them and their new soon to be family.

I still have a ways to go, but I have to say that as nervous I was, I had a great time and I am so thrilled with what I got.

Now I am looking forward to taking a photography course even sooner.

Also Payton was my first picture of the afternoon just checking out the lighting. I thought she looked adorable and had to share it.

Thank you Brad and Lindsay for the experience.
