Meeting New Friends

Have you met my friend, Heidi Morgan yet? We've done a few fun things together in the past...she has such a warm personality and I always feel refreshed after spending time with her. The great thing about her is that she ALWAYS photographs the whole story. She finds pleasure in capturing the details...things that may be forgotten but oh-so important. We have Model Mayhem to thank for our friendship, and we both share the same delight in meeting new faces. Heidi introduced me to her friend, who is a model, actress, and the official 2012 Mrs. San Francisco- Erica Sanders. Enjoy some images from our lovey bridal shoot together...

Where have you been, and where will you go? Do you tell your story to everyone you meet? I tend to be one of those "open book" kinda gals. One thing about my job, is I can't be shy. I meet many new faces on a regular basis-and I welcome each and everyone with hopes to part with a hug in the end. The great thing about social media is you can meet people in an instant, and when you meet in person it's like you have known each other forever. I had the pleasure of meeting Joanna Cleveland, designer of PYRCE Jewelry via email first...and once we met, ironically she knew my hubby! We had plenty to talk about so, I cannot wait to work with her again. Her passion for her artwork was evident throughout the day as she helped style this shoot. Check PYRCE out on Etsy and Facebook to see more designs.
