Syracuse Nationals 2014

What a wonderful year at the Syracuse Nationals! It was their 15th year and there had to be 8,000+ cars this year! My husband and I for the first time camped there all weekend, and it certainly won’t be the last! We just loved waking up to the roaring engines, whining blowers, loappy cams, and squealing tires right outside our camper! Grabbing a cup of coffee, sitting in my chair watching the cars roll in outside my window at 6:00am was absolute bliss.  Not only is this every car lovers dream this event helps raise money for charities, raising just over $104,000.00 last year!

I had so much fun photographing these beautiful pieces of art & history: the curves, details, engines, creativity and personality put into these vehicles is amazing!

I have to start with my husbands first project car! Then followed by my truck! Well the one that I would love to have one day…

 I just love everything about this event.  The 50’s music playing in the background as you walk through 1000’s of different vehicles, the excitement and wonder of where this car has been and the streets it drove through 30-80+ years ago, meeting the wonder people who own and have the same passion for vehicles, it all just adds to viewing this beautiful pieces of machinery.

I hope you enjoyed! Were you there? Share your experience or come to this event in 2015!

Hello + Welcome

Hello + Welcome! I am so happy you are here.  My passion for photography is photographing the happiness, laughter, love, and priceless moments in life.  My goal is to use this blog as means for you to get to know me and my work.  I would like to start by telling you a little about me.

I have a few passions in life…

My pups (Chevy & Tremec), my husband (yes it poured on our wedding day, and it was perfect), my family, my friends, and photography.

My Interests…

I could go on and on about my interests, but it all comes down to loving the simple things in life! Camping, reading a good book, family dinners, coffee with friends, hanging with my dogs, FOOD, and just taking in the beauty of everyday life makes me happy. I am still blown away by airplanes & cordless/mobile phones! 🙂  This world is an incredible place, a beautiful sunset takes my breath away every time, I am obsessed with beautiful landscapes and trees, seeing the Redwoods is near the top of my bucket list.  My excitement for nature and landscapes is what led me to purchasing my first Canon camera at 17 years old.

I want to travel the world: learn, see and experience different cultures. I love people, hearing their stories, and getting to know them. It is truly amazing that you will never meet the same person, every person and each story is unique. That is what I aim for in my photography, telling each persons story through my images, whether the story is their wedding day or a family portrait.

Why Photography?

For as long as I can remember, I have had a camera in my hand. I have a great passion for life, and have always loved capturing the moments that I have experienced.  I look forward to the day 50 years from now when I can look back at the story told by my pictures.  I had fallen in love with pictures of people while searching for a photographer for my wedding.  I was amazed by how realistic the photographs in their portfolios looked. I could feel the love between the couples, the happiness in the families, the purity of a newborn.  At that moment, I knew that I wanted to be the one to create memories for other people much like I have been doing for myself my whole life. I wanted to be the one to capture their moments for them to be able to look back on one day.

Follow My Trip…

Over the next few weeks I will be blogging about a trip that I am so fortunate to be taking!  I will be sailing the Mediterranean!  Please feel free to follow, comment, and share this adventure with me.

Again, I truly thank you for visiting.
