Children Teach As Much As They Learn....

I loved this video and I wanted to share it... children are so precious. Non-judgemental yet somehow already all knowing. I've been an on and off vegetarian for years and this makes it really easy to stick to it. As Russell Brand eloquently put it "I'm a vegetarian and I feel I have no right to kill other creatures on this Planet. Like say, a fly comes into my house. I tolerate that little asshole because I think oh he's just wondering about living his life". And that's the truth. Except I do murder insects, they are disgusting, sorry Russ.

BCP Boys Club

I love these senior portraits I photographed yesterday of young men who have been friends since they were babies and now they are graduating Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona...they were so much fun and I wish them so much luck in college!

Do What You LOVE...

I love being a wedding photographer in Arizona. The loving vibe. The excitement stirring in everyone. The celebration. The cake. What is not to love? If you are in the Scottsdale, Phoenix or Sedona area please visit my website for last minute availability and booking info.

Thank You's & Goodbye's Are Real

This is such a beautiful moment of the chimp Wounda who was released after being nursed back to health by the Jane Goodall Foundation { click here to make a donation on their website } animals have the ability to have emotions and connections just like humans, remember Mr. G and Jellybean?!

The Kids Got Soul

A True Sanctuary

Here is a sneak preview of the wedding I photographed at one of my favorite hotels in Arizona, The Sanctuary Resort. It was a sunset affair & the officiant had a very emotional and beautiful ceremony. I loved it very much! Congrats!

It's Very Simple: Be Kind

"When I am being nice, I feel better. Be kind to one another. As a drug addict that no longer uses drugs, one day at a time, I find for me to survive is very simple. What I have to do is tune into the part of me that is compassionate and kind. Don't get distracted, don't live in desire and fear the most negative aspects of nature, tend toward the better aspects of yourself and you'll build connections and communities based on those frequencies. " - Russell Brand

I think I've said on my blog before that I love Russell Brand. As a comedian and as a political activist. I watched this video last night and if you have the time it's very interesting and brings up some current issues about many things like voting, living wages and the criminalization of drugs and the effect it has worldwide. I wanted to share it with you darlings because I personally enjoy listening to political debates in a British accent, it's much more pleasant, no?

Le Backyard Bleu

I absolutely LOVED the home I photographed today...not only was it beautiful on the interior, the backyard was amazing! I can completely imagine myself reading in the Arizona sunlight or lounging in the shade, having romantic dinners outside under the twinkle lights and midnight swims. J'adore!
