Loss

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…       Of everything in my life, this is easily the most difficult subject for me to speak about. And there is a lot in my…

Homicidal Mickey

This Mickey Mouse tattoo is actually a big joke in my house. It was, until recently, my one piece of flash and it is also a matching set with my husband. Our tattoo lounge had announced a Friday the 13th special, $13 and $31 tattoos, from a set of tattoos. I had, jokingly, told my husband…

Rockabilly Villians

This last weekend was a total blast. Saturday was spent cleaning, crocheting, sewing, and watching Netflix. On Saturday night, we took the kids to see A Dog’s Purpose. (Which will make you cry, and is really very good.) But, it was an excuse for me to get out of yoga pants and into something fun….

Karma Kreations (Outdoors)

In February of 2015, I was privileged enough to work with Karma Kreations twice. The first time was an elegant, boudoir type shoot. This second time was a much more natural, fun, me type of shoot. Which is actually really funny, because everyone always tells met that these photos are some of their favorites, as…

Too Cold to Ride

In case you’ve never met me, let me tell you an important fact about myself…I am a huge pansy when it comes to the cold. Seriously. If it is less than 75F outside, I am probably wearing at least a light jacket. And if it is less than 65F, I am complaining about how I…

Old Photos

Man oh man, as I go through these old photo shoots and tattoo photos, it is really blowing my mind! There is nothing quite like looking at a 2 year old picture of yourself to notice every bit of toning you’ve lost, every bit of weight you’ve gained, every new wrinkle, and every gray hair!…

TNT Photo

In February of 2015, I was given the opportunity to work with Luis from TNT Photography. This poor guy went through so much to shoot this set. I had a girlfriend there with me, and we had been out shooting in the morning. So, of course, I was nowhere near ready to go when he…

Checking In

It has been cold and rainy out here! Flooding, road closures, fences collapsing, trees collapsing, total chaos. So, my life has mostly consisted of staying inside and trying to avoid becoming water logged. However, on Saturday morning, it was absolutely gorgeous! So, we took the kids out to IHOP and enjoyed some sunshine. The rest…

Starfish Tattoo

In May of 2014, not long after getting my fantastic turtle done by Monte , it was time for something new. So, it was decided that my turtle needed a friend. I have always been fascinated by starfish. They are so colorful and beautiful. They can survive almost anything. Plush, they are squishy and my…

Turtle Tattoo

My turtle tattoo is actually a funny story. Back in early 2013, I was sitting in my new apartment, in San Juan Capistrano, bored out of my mind. And, just for the fun of it, my boyfriend (now husband) and I decided to look up tattoo parlors in the area. More out of a sense…

Karma Kreations

In February of 2015, I shot with Karma Kreations in my own home. Karen was a delight to work with. We did things a little differently, no make up, no hair styling, just every day boudoir. Beauty in it’s raw, real, and regular form. Karen is super sweet, very funny, and full of ideas. She…

3R Photography

In November of 2013, my friend Alice hooked us up with another photographer for a slightly different type of shoot. It was definitely more an edgy / gothic glamour shoot. We met up at Griffith park and hiked up to the abandoned zoo. We (illegally) climbed over some fences and found some amazing graffiti in some…
