thesis update.

this week i held my thesis defense. i had a fantastic committee who asked great questions and were quite quick to approve my paper. it is a huge relief to have this behind me! this means i can now register with the board of behavioral science for my intern number and work as a therapist again, but this time, paid! anyway i will post my results soon. sooner or later.

a huge thank you goes out to everyone who spread the word about my project to help me find participants for my study, and for all the words of encouragement that were shared with me.

on another note, photo posts to look for on my blog very soon:
-dave & jenny's wedding
-kelly & jason's wedding
-tracy & brian's second engagement shoot - while snowboarding!
-shawni's graduation shoot
-ruby & ryan's engagement shoot

i was also pushed to create a website for my photography because i am shooting the newport beach film festival next week and my info will be printed in the program. since i didn't have time to put together a regular site, within a week i should have my photo blog up. so stay tuned folks.

jenny & dave married!

here is a preview of a wedding i shot with james carson day. it was a beautiful day in san juan capistrano and the rain stopped just in time for the sun to shine through. more to come later.

sara & dave engaged!

check out the beautiful sara and her soon-to-be husband dave...
we did a second engagement photo shoot because we had so much fun doing the first!

if you haven't already, check out their first engagement photo shoot we did on the beach a few months ago.

feels good.

"You have done an awesome job with this.  I don't think I have ever had a student who put her thesis together as quickly and well as you have! We won't have any trouble at all getting you done by the deadline for May graduation."
