The Exten Family
Jan. 19
Last month I had the chance to photograph my last family of 2020 to close out that ______ year! I actually didn't mind 2020 in some ways. I did a lot of learning and got to spend more time with family. I was even more grateful for the clients I was able to see with vacations being cancelled among other things. Here are a few of the images from our session at Wild Dunes at the Property Owners Beach House. It was a bit nippy but they were ALL IN! I love helping my clients visualize their art on the walls of their home... VIEW POST
Reviews and Referrals I am so excited to be moving to a new and more "shiny" email platform and I promise NOT to send tons of mail to you!

The result was nothing short of spectacular and Roxanne ordered a 45x30 for her front room. IT IS AMAZING... art all the way! This is wh... VIEW POST
My Happy Place It's interesting when you take a moment to reflect on your life and choices and see how the different paths you picked led you to where you are now. Then being able to decide what to do going forward. For me, I grew up with the deep desire to be an actress on Broadway and in the movies. I wanted to be like the stars of old who would sing and act and dance and of course looked glamorous even getting out of bed in the morning. For a time in my life I enjoyed being able to perform in the theatre and on film. I was able to model and feel glamorous too. As my life took it's twists and turns, I found my "happy place" was no longer in NYC and on the stage, well at least for a time, I thought. Following my heart, I got married, ra... VIEW POST
