Make a Wish

Sometimes inspiration is right in front of you.  When you least expect it, as you are searching all over for something that will help you get on a creative roll, it just hits you.  My latest inspiration was not planned and came to me through my own photography.  A self portrait on New Year's Eve made me realize you don't always have to be looking at the camera or even have your eyes open to look pretty!   I then remembered a few more "eyes shut" pictures and I started collecting these images from my photo archives.   As I did this, I was making an eclectic and somewhat random set of earrings where no two were alike, but they were all unique and beautiful.  Much like the pretties in these photos.  I began to realize the joy I get from taking pictures and capturing moments like these and I decided to share this feeling, by making these photos the newest hang tags for this latest earring collection. 

Close your eyes, make a wish and enjoy this new whimsical collection of earrings, inspired by YOU!

Kindergarten Crush

                                        Meet Peter.                                              Meet Madeleine.
                                                                           They met in kindergarten. 

These two are now 16 years old. Their story goes like this, as told by Peter's mom, Leah...

The kindergarten teacher called me and told me about this little girl in the class that paralyzed Peter, literally whenever she was near, he couldn't move. The teacher suggested that I "socialize them outside of school", so that Peter could function in class. Well, I didn't really act on it right away. Come Christmas time, while shopping, he picked out a little black tshirt with red roses and said, "I wanna buy this for Madeleine". So, with his own money, he bought it, wrapped it with comic paper, and snuck it into her backpack on the last day of school before vacation.

As serendipity would have it, we were at the beach in February and accidentally bumped into Madeleine and her mom. They became fast friends and daily, after school, tree house and beach playmates.
        They'd play spy detective and run all over the neighborhood together.
They'd dress up and dress up some more, every chance they got! 

Fast forward to today.  These two are the best of friends and know that they will be together forever.
I was honored to be the photographer celebrating their sweet 16th year, and dress them up again!

As far as I'm concerned, this is the best kind of love story ever...a true friendship. 
I secretly wish they get married one day and live blissfully in love and happily ever after.
