One of the biggest blessings I have had with this career is the gift of being present. It’s far too easy for us to always think about tomorrow, next week, next month, and even next year in this career. • I have learned to not let days go wasted and to truly be present and lock the memories in. I will live in this moment. Today & right now. • So wherever you are. Be all there. • Thank you an incredible week @united. It’s allowed me to Live for day. Make new friends. Be fully here in this experience. • ✨Cheers to a successful united conference.✨#showitunited2019
I believe in the kind of love that doesn’t demand me to prove my worth and sit in anxiety. I crave a natural connection, where my soul is able to recognize a feeling of home in another. Something free-flowing, something simple. Something that allows me to be me without question. United does that for me.... A Real CONNECTION to others... People. Just. Like. Me ✨ How many of you feel disconnected. Stuck. Hopeless. Defeated. Uncertain. Lonely? 🙋🏼♀️ I know I have felt this way many times in my course of my career. And when I attend powerful and uplifting conferences. It changes me. It changes my business. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So this week I get to attend & host a gorgeous educational styled shoot at @showit I’m so excited to connect with my fellow photographers and industry professionals and give so many hugs and embark on supporting each other. Full heartedly. On a real real level! I cannot wait to see my fellow #Showiteers #WhosReadyForSomeHugs #ShowitUnited #United

Friday Fun Fact About Me! I loveeee movies! Im a hopeless romantic and don’t let me fool you, I too love a horror movie also! But, here are some quotes from my favorite romantic movies ever. Most of these quotes I look at and I feel them in all my work. Can you guess the movie? NO (google) CHEATING. 🤣✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re a bird, I’m a bird. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May I admire you again today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to tell you, again, I love you. Our love has been the thread through the labyrinth, the net under the high-wire walker, the only real thing in this strange life of mine that I could ever trust. Tonight I feel that my love for you has more density in this world than I do, myself: as though it could linger on after me and surround you, keep you, hold you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some claim the shoe was made of fur. Others insist it was glass. Well, I guess we'll never know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible. I want you to know that you could have it. I want you to hold out for it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You jump, I jump, right?
