as much as I didn't want to believe it, i was never going to be an opera singer.

at age 15, life started me on a musical path as a classical singer and theatre major. in '03 my daughter was born, i found a new passion in my daughter and singing was put to the side. my parents gave me a camera to capture my growing daughter's moments. i never thought photography would be my path choice but universe had different plans for me - thank you, universe!

Carlise,
WOW! First I just wanted to share with you my feelings on the experience I had with you last Thursday! You are the most genuine, caring, calming soul I could have ever imagined doing this photo shoot with! I told you that day as a artist myself it gave me such joy and comfort to see the excitement that came over you as you were capturing your works of art! I can not thank you enough for the experience I had along with all the kind words you have shared with me! You are truly amazing! Thank you for making me see the true goddess that I will embrace from this point forward!!!

Carlise!! I LOVE them! I'm so excited to show my fiance - I've looked at them twice already - I cant believe it - I'm actually impressed with myself and I think this is becoming more of a gift for myself than him! Haha! You are the best!
