Sneak peek, sneak-a-roo, teaser, preview… All of the above! :)

Hello out there!

I have been one busy gal and I am NOT complaining! It is my most favorite time of year, FALL! Fall isn’t quite the same in Florida, but I will make the most of it! I have already had at least 2 pumpkin spice chai lattes! YAY! I just wanted to share a couple images from my last 4 shoots! Stick around for more from these shoots over the next 2 weeks!

Sun, Sand, LOVE, and ‘Fish’ Flops!!!!! ;)

Do you ever meet someone and feel as though you’ve known them your entire LIFE?! Well, that is what happened when I met Katie Hook. Katie is a funny, smart, and beautiful gal full of laughter, love and life! We instantly connected over a year ago and she has since been one of the sweetest, most thoughtful, fun, and real people I know. I also met her handsome and kind (boyfriend at the time) John Hayes. It is beyond evident the love and adoration these two have for each other! I also met Katie’s beautiful, fun-loving and quite witty mom, Linda. We all lovingly refer to each other as, ‘Out-laws’. Sometimes, people are brought into your life, they may not be family, but they sure do treat you like family. I feel very honored to have such incredible people in my life story!

Months ago, Katie told me of plans to marry her sweetheart, John in Florida. No one had any clue what was going to happen! Some family and friends were planning a vacation to FL, Katie and John thought, what a better way to get married and surprise everyone, then to do it right there on the beach! The only reason I knew was because Katie wanted me to sing her down the ‘aisle’  to her and John’s song, “Rest of  my Life” by: Bruno Mars. I was completely honored to do so and also offered to do her make-up and snap some shots! About a month before the surprise wedding, the cat was out of the bag! Friends and family learned of their surprise and couldn’t be happier for this gorgeous couple. Some crazy events took place in my own life and I thought I would be unable to attend the wedding, I was crushed. But, fate has a way of working things out and I was able to be a part of this beautiful day! We laughed, we cried, and celebrated the love of two amazing people!

Photography is something I have been in love with most of my life. I was that annoying friend with the disposal camera, making ‘kissy’ faces (long before facebook existed!). I took pictures for the yearbook, school newspaper and all of my friends. But I  didn’t truly start to take it seriously until recently. I have definitely been bitten by the bug. This is the first wedding that I’ve shot! Hopefully, it won’t be the last.

Congrats John & Katie! I pray you have a lifelong marriage that will overcome any obstacle thrown your way and that you will be able  to love each other more and more with each passing day. I love you guys!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the day! Enjoy!

Well, hello there! :)

Hi, my name is Donna. I am new to the world of blogging and was talked into it by a friend. I hope you are not bored out of your mind reading what I post and maybe, just maybe, encouraged by a thing or two I have to say. I love music, cooking, photography, people, and learning new things. I am definitely a people person and my friends would tell ya I am laugh out loud fun. I make friends wherever I go and look at life through the eyes of love. Every sunrise is another gift, another chance to give back to the One who gave us breath. I love to create. Whether it be through my camera lens, song, make-up artistry or something tasty in the kitchen, I enjoy the process and end result! I have a big, loud, crazy, Italian family from Brooklyn and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I  have the awesome privilege of being a Worship Leader. I get to sing and play with my brothers from other mothers! 🙂 We’ve been playing together for over 10 years! Photography is an old love which feels like a new love as I dive deeper into it.  Let’s see, I also like long walks on the beach, dancing in the kitchen while cooking and candlelight dinners… haha. This is starting to sound like a personal add! I promise, I’m not trying to get a date (Although, who am I kidding, it would be nice!). That’s all I got for now! Stay tuned for more random thoughts, rants, images, and hopefully something inspiring! 🙂

xoxo,

Donna 🙂
