Tiffany Israel

I met Tiffany Israel during my annual Big Bear Scrapbboking Retreat at Apples Bed & Breakfast. She is quiet, talented, artistic, a friend, a daughter, a photographer, and a filmmaker. She is SPECIAL!
It was really cool to be there when she received the phone call from NewFilmMakersin Los Angeles. They were calling to congratulate her on the premiere of her Documentary "Exile State".
"Exile State" is a short documentary about a young woman's (Tiffany) journey to Arizona to comfort her father about his absence and to inform him that her mother has breast cancer.
The filmmaking was done by Emily Ray. I was honored to photograph this special event in Los Angeles. There are things that happen in life when you know they were meant to be. Meeting Tiffany and her mother, Vivanne are one of those times. God has truly blessed me through these ladies. I look forward to what Tiffany has around the corner.

Day at the Beach

One of our favorite things to do is go on walks along the beach with our boys. Since I use to live in Laguna Beach I know of little secret beaches that we like to sneak off to and let the boys run free.
Mac is our more daring one and will go fetch the ball in the water with no hesitation. But today was a big day for Jonas. His first time in the ocean going after the ball. He decided it just isn't his thing so that only lasted a short while. Mac on the other hand could do this game of fetch for hours.Mac and Jonas making new friends. They just love meeting and playing with other dogs.
What is it about sand sifting through your toes, the sounds of the waves crashing, the sun setting? Oh, ocean I love you!

An Early Christmas

I was so excited when the delivery man rang the doorbell. I came running down the stairs like a 5 year old on Christmas morning. It was a big day here in Forever Keep land. I tore open the package to find these beautiful letter pressed business cards. They turned out amazing. A big thanks goes out to Sally Ann from Invited Ink. She was so wonderful. She was a good listener and made my vision of not wanting just an ordinary business card come to life.
