  • Fixed On Fitness

  • March 1st... How are your new year's resolutions going for you? Did you jump on a new diet fad? Did you commit to getting back in shape, join a new gym like you promised yourself? It's all within our grasp, there are plenty of others who seem to lead a normal life, and manage to resist food temptations and find enough time in their schedule to workout. Did you get there? Are you still considering it? Are you searching for a little motivation? Here's a little help, a lot of help really: co [...]
  • Congratulations to the Senior model team of class 2015!

  • I am just stoked about this project and so excited to have received such an enthusiastic response to the application process. When thinking it through, I had some fears that I wouldn't be able to communicate how much fun this will be and I worried few would sign up. In the end, too many signed up! It was disheartening to not be able to take everyone who applied. I just wouldn't be able to handle such a big group. I apologize to all who are not part of the team and I am grateful to all to ha [...]
  • Wedding photographers

  • Bonjour blog! Long time, no see:(  Sorry for the long absence, I have been investing all my efforts into facebook lately, but now trying to rekindle with my blog, although I wonder if blogs are already a thing from the past?  What do you think, are there still people out there reading this? Since I've started my business, I have photographed a little of everything, ranging from pregnancy sessions, to newborn, babies, children, families, engagements, weddings and even dogs! Overtime, I h [...]
  • Design Aglow share

  • How exciting! Only 3 days after submitting my pictures to Design aglow, I am featured as their "inspiration". Their website is a digital candy store for me, I can't visit it without wanting a new template, I get lost while loading my cart with goodies. Back in Med school when they were teaching us to make Pascal programs for computers, I developed a dislike of these modern machines. After that grueling experience, I could not understand the appeal of computers to others, until I took a photoshop [...]
  • Cutting

  • There's an aura of admiration and awe around the blue angels. Here in Pensacola, there is a sense of pride to be Home to the elite group of pilot. When CJ and Anne came to me with his "retired" blue angel uniform to use as the cover of their son's, Christian's album, I thought it was a terrific idea. So much sentimentality, such a perfect way to convey what was happening in his family at the time of his birth, without having to glue memorabilia all over his album. However, once alone facing [...]
  • Big Sky

  • 6 days in snow, it felt wonderful! A little cold, very cold actually, although the locals complained it was a hot winter... I must have become a Floridian all the way now, because it just felt freezing to me. We've been going to Big Sky several times, and the beautiful landscape has me in awe every time, the light there is remarkable perhaps because the horizon is so distant, perhaps because of the mountains... I wish I could hold some photography sessions there, just dreaming a little. 6 d [...]
  • Halloween

  • I hope everyone had a joyous Halloween with many adorable trick-or-treaters at their door. I saw many clever costumes and excited little faces, smeared with candy. One of our neighbors goes "all out" on Halloween and has the most intriguing decorations about his propriety, my children have named his house the cool scary house. Among our favorite items, he has a witch's broom wondering (on it's own!!) around his sidewalk, sculpted bust tombstones talking, a witch slowly unfolding herself from [...]
  • Winning=feels really good!

  • The announcement of the NAPCP image competition was finally released Friday, and I've been riding cloud 9th up on the 7th sky since then. Back in July, as I was frantically busy getting ready for our summer trip to France, I received an email from the NAPCP regarding their annual international competition. The entry's deadline was end of July, but I had only a day to pack and to decide which images to use. Too much to do, too little time for it all, but how would I ever experience the joy of [...]
  • Check it out

  • My new friends, Jessica & David, a local husband and wife wedding photographer team, have me as a guest on their blog about clothing style. How very flattering to be asked, and the session itself was a lot of fun. Quite a change to be on the other side of the camera. David and Jess work real well together and it's no wonder they cover weddings so beautifully. They complement each other perfectly, they work fast, they are synced and you really NEED that harmony in the team photographing [...]
  • Reading

  • For the 4 years I've been blogging, I've often been tempted to share "personal thoughts"and every once in a while, I do.  My hesitation isn't shyness, I'm just a little reserved, and maybe concerned that perhaps what goes on in my life is not interesting to those who stumble across my blog.  My blog is my portfolio, a testimony of my work and its progress through time, a place to decide if my style will fit your needs.  But then, you may also want a glimpse of who I am before you hire me to phot [...]
  • A funny note

  • I'm just working away on my computer, when Magalie, my 10 year old, sneaks up by and leaves me this note to read immediately. Obviously, she inherited my sweet tooth curse... Very witty Meg!!! Sweets are the best fuel in our family for our creativity engine, so I talked the hungry alien into visiting someone else's house, while I let Meg "guard" the cookie dough... A wonderful 4th of July weekend to all!
  • Our water filters

  • A little over 10 years ago, we read reports about water quality, and it prompted us to install an elaborate water filter system to "purify" the city water feeding our entire house. We have four 3 feet long and 6.5" diameter gigantic filters in our garage filtering the water coming from the street into our house, 4 more small filters for our kitchen sink, and again 4 filters for our freezer (for ice cubes and cold drinking water). Therefore, throughout the house, our water is filtered from the [...]
