I've never been a fan of romance novels or movies. Real life love stories though, those are my jam. .

Me: what’s your fave part of your body?

Her: I love all of it.

Self love goals. 🔥 .

I catch myself smiling when I'm shooting. When I'm writing emails to my clients. When I'm working on my website. Hell -- when I'm doing anything that qualifies as work. For no other reason than loving my craft and my company. I hope you catch yourself smiling during your day, too. ❤️

I haven't posted in forever! But, that doesn't mean I haven't been busy -- the contrary! I have so much newness to share with you all, from Chicago, Washington, DC, and Miami! So I've been MIA for a little bit, and I've also been in the MIA for a little bit (that made me chuckle at least 😂) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday, I was honored with capturing the wedding of Dianne & Geoff. If you're local to Miami you may have heard of their blog Miami Food Pug. These two are freaking incredible. They're so in love with each other, and are some of the kindest, most considerate people you'll ever meet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, there were PUGS in the wedding! Make sure you SWIPE LEFT to see them!

It was the sweetest thing: they were all really nervous about the tremendous task ahead. Flower girlin' and ring bearin' ain't easy. .

Time again for #fridayintroductions!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have an (unusual?) aversion to taking selfies. However, I make an effort so that I can better empathize with camera-shy clients. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My theory is I have to be able to take a photo of myself that I like (I'm pretty proud of this one!), to trust myself taking ones of you that you'll love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: On a scale from 1-10, how comfortable are you in front of a camera?
