This past weekend I flexed my videography mermaid arm at the beautiful Burnt Toast Farms for an amazing "Taste of Country" farm dinner. Impeccable serving staff was provided by 5 Star Staffing to create a seamless dining experience and help bring Chef Matt Walton's of The Gild House delicious creations to life! I am excited to have captured the floral, food, & farm magic thru my lens to create this video for all of the sponsors to use and the guests to relive the evening. Check out the credits at the end of the video to see the full list of talented people that went into making this night enchanting!

Avocados, strawberries, pumpkins, & peaches; these are a few of my favorite foods... which actually will quickly disappear as the bee continues to disappear! Honeybees perform about 80% of all pollination worldwide & in the past decade, many pollinators are disappearing at alarming rates, especially bees! The cause & solution for this huge problem is not a simple or easy one, but many great organizations are performing research & educating people on what they can do to help everyday. I am passionate about this cause and wanted to create a piece of art that spoke to this issue. From every print sold, 50% of the money will be donated to the Center for Honeybee Research in Asheville NC, whom well-roundedly offer education programs for the general public/beekeepers & conduct research on how to better save this ever so important creature. Thanks for watching & reading!
Baking cookies is one of my favorite family traditions around the holidays. I wanted to document this loved time my sisters and mom spend together. Pizzelles, an Italian pressed cookie are typically my specialty, making it even more special that I get to use my mom's vintage pizzelle iron she received as a wedding present from her mother.
My mom & dad, sisters, Aunt Joyce & her friend Paul spent 7 days in Utah this May 2017. We visited 2 national parks: Bryce Canyon & Zion, 1 national forest: Dixie, & 3 state parks: Valley of Fire, Red Canyon, & Coral Pink Sand Dunes. Most of the video is in order of the trip but some is not for you know, artsy fartsy reasons. Thanks for a wonderful trip family & I hope y'all enjoy the video!

During my friend Andrea's 3 month RV cross country trip, I joined for a short portion from Portland to Napa Valley then spent time visiting family & friends in San Francisco. The largest Sea Cave in America, the Oregon Sand Dunes, the California Redwoods, the largest heard of Roosevelt Elk in the world, wine & vineyards for days, and amazingly kind people we met along the way are just a few of the things seen in the video... Also, I think I covered every form of transportation as well: planes, trains, cars, RV, ferry, subway, bus, and streetcar. :) Thanks for an amazing adventure Andrea, I was so excited to join in on your & Sally's travels!
