Today I was attempting to unclog our bathroom sink and I was using pliers and I twitched and pinch my finger super hard with them. Well then I couldn’t feel my finger and was home alone and getting nervous haha. I wasn’t bleeding but it start to form a blood blister and those freak me out. Like I’m internally bleeding. Soooo I started googling things and got light headed and passed out for a good 3 minutes. When I became alert again I got up and went to lay down in my bed and started profusely sweating. I’m talking my arms, face and back was dripping. I was so scared because I still wasn’t fully awake. I wiped down my body and called my mom..because I’m 27 and still call mom or dad when I have a medical question. ANYWAYS, I’m fine. I think it was adrenaline mixed with the fact I wasn’t drinking enough water. Feeling better. Finger is still annoying me 🤘

I PEED MY PANTS 😂 haha clickbait do you read the rest of this...hopefully. Today at 5 a.m our fire alarm in our bedroom went off and I thought our apartment was burning down. I was in such a DEEP SLEEP and was dreaming about me being stuck in some haunted place...so that didn’t help!!! I leaped so fast out of bed and kept trying to “hush” it. I checked our whole place and everything was fine so I went back to sleep. 5 min later AGAINNNN! Soooo I grabbed that sassy fire alarm off the ceiling and laid it in bed next to me just so I didn’t have to jump back out of bed to turn it off. Guys the one in our hallway literally goes off when we take a hot shower 😂 haha like whyyyy? DO YOU HAVE ANY “funny” STORIES THAT YOU WANT TO SHARE?? Comment below 🤘

I keep sitting here thinking dang I need a really good thought out caption. I’ve literally went to post this 3x today and every time my mind goes blank and I exit Instagram. So here it is...IVE DONE NOTHING THIS WEEK. I’ve slept in. I’ve answered emails. I’ve done dishes and laundry. Exciting, I know. Haha I guess my rambling has actually made this a long caption. 🤷‍♀️

YOU FREAKING AMAZING PEOPLE! Sooooo, I’m going to start fostering kittens/cats. Would love to foster all animals but my apartments don’t allow that. Trust me, my goal is to have a big enough yard so I can take in all animals in need. Would you be interested in seeing them in my stories/highlights? I am picking up my first two kittens Saturday! Comment a 🐈 if you are wanting a new kitten in your life haha! Anyone else on here foster? Also, really quick...how cute are these babes? 😭

Okay okay two things I wanted to tell ya babes! 1. If no one has told you today, YOU are doing FANTASTIC. You are exactly where you need to be and I am beyond proud of each one of you. I swear I scroll through Instagram and watch all these awesome moments happen and it makes me so happy! Keep doing you, because you are killing it! 2. Speaking of being proud. My friend @jamiesimko did the videography for A & S wedding and he slayyyyed! I knew he was talented but I was blown away with his talent during this wedding, watching him work. If you are in need of a videographer for your wedding, Jamie would kickass. Plus you are bound to have a good time with us as your team 🍻SWIPE ——> to see a clip from his video.

LET ME INTO YOUR HOME 😆 but REAL TALK in home sessions are something else! I think our first instinct is to go outside and shoot at some rad location BUT instead that rad location can be your home? What!??? Imagine you curled up on a bed in front of a dope ass window and I can capture you in your every day life. It is comfortable. It is cute. It is personal. We could even grab some beers and pizza to use as props...OR EAT...😂 🍕 idk guys, haha. Just think about it, it could be super fun. But on another note...or side note 🤔 DO YOU LIKE PINEAPPLE ON YOUR PIZZA?

So this happened yesterday!!! I got a message about 8 months ago that Renee got a ring and wanted to capture her proposal and I was like, “OHHH HELL YEAH”! We got to planning and it was seriously so much fun. I have known Renee since the Mary-Kate and Ashley days. We were neighbors that grew into family. When I found out she wanted propose I was tearing up. I am so happy she found someone equally as amazing. Morgan, damn I swear I have never seen Renee light up like when she is with her. M radiates with beauty and she is sharp to hit you with some humor haha. I couldn’t even handle how perfect they are together. We headed up to Palomar Mountain AND WELL...you can see for yourself.

Okay okay I’m going to come out and say it...today was kind of nice with Instagram down. I feel with a business I need to constantly have a presence on social media, but today...well for most of the day...I didn’t feel that. I woke up early. FaceTimed my sister and then my mom. I took a walk and got coffee. Today was so relaxing. On another note Instagram and social media ate huge for marketing and I’m so glad we have this platform to embrace who we are. It’s a way I get to be authentic and show everyone the badass behind the camera while also presenting my work. I hope everyone had a great day🤘

I can’t say it enough, I LOVE WHERE I LIVE! I love the oceans stillness as the sun falls behind the horizon. I love the people I have found and connected with while going to coffee shops and shopping with the local business. I love that it is ALWAYS the perfect weather. I love my perfectly small apartment that I share with the most perfect roommate and lover. 3 years ago we moved to Oceanside and it has been the best experience and life choice. This photo of one of my favorite couples perfectly sums up the feelings I have for this home. It drenched me in an overall feeling of calmness and well being. Give me a 👏👏👏 if you call Oceanside your home!!!
