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…

Cherry Blossoms and Paper Cranes Tattoo

This was my last piece that I had done before leaving Japan. It took about 3.5 hours and hurt something fierce. I actually cried through most of it. My artist, while talented, was very heavy handed and very slow. This piece was something that was a dream of mine for a long time. When I…

Teddy Bear Tattoo – As You Wish

This tattoo has very, very special meaning to me…for two reasons. I made the appointment weeks in advance…the artist had drawn it up…we had discussed colors…everything was set. The basis behind the tattoo was to start my memory sleeve…something to represent the people who had impacted my life the most. This piece was for my…

Romero & UD Photography

Back in 2013, I spent a lot of time with a beautiful alternative model named Alice “Myzaree” Monroe. She introduced me to a few photographers, to Model Mayhem, and really got me into different forms of modeling. She had found an awesome photography duo on Model Mayhem and we all met up for a quick shoot out…
