Happy Friday

Happy Friday…..

I have a lot to be thankful for this week and always. I am grateful for life, blessed to be the mother to two beautiful children and have a husband that is supportive every step of my journey.

Hoping you had a great week and ready for a fantastic and relaxing weekend.


All the best until next time!




Finding Joy Through The Storm

Life has a way of throwing us curve balls and fastballs everyday. The outcome and how we handle them as we are going through the storms can be devastating if we don’t stop for a moment and process the why and how to get through them. I have grown to realize that going through storms can be a way of helping us gain more strength and challenge us to look at things differently. My younger self did not understand what my now older self appreciates as growing through the storm. 

Every storm brings me new revelations on who I am and how I have gained the emotional resilience that has made me a stronger person, wife, mother and friend. When the storm comes now I have more self-awareness in how to respond and manage my emotions and situations during the storm. My self-awareness helps me weather the storm and find joy during that time as well as prepare me for the calm after the storm.

There will be times when the storm comes and I feel like walking away and throwing up my hands and calling it quits, but my better self knows that growth is on the other side and a life lesson that will strengthen me for the next storm so that I can thrive.   


Be well until next time.

I met @satkinsongrierduring my time at @altis last year. As much as I enjoyed documenting all the amazing athletes in the midst of training I also wanted to produce images where I had more control and the ability to create an image from start to finish. Thankfully Saniel and I were able to schedule some studio time in Kansas City a few months back and this image is the result of that collaboration. She is a badass high jumper with big dreams both on and off the track. Big thanks to Saniel and @jasontracyphoto for digitech/assisting!

All the best until next time.


Never Quit!

Stay encouraged when times get tough and you feel like quitting. Remember that you started your journey to achieve a goal. Don’t be discouraged and give up on your dreams. Continue to dream big and push forward to accomplish your goals. 


All the best until next time. 


No Time for Negativity!

I am having one of those moments when my tolerance for people who claim to be your friend and someone who you considered to be your friend talk negatively behind your back. I am an optimistic person and believe that you should be treated the way you treat others. I don’t see what difficult about doing that and can’t understand why someone who is supposed to be in your circle feel the need to betray you. Well the way I handle that is to not be distracted from my mission and move forward in my purpose and passion. The incoming noise gets bounced off before they make it to my hemisphere.


Don’t get distracted!…..Stay focused on your goals.

Don’t allow the noise around you to distract you! 

Until next time all the best!
