My top 5 fav photographers

I wanted to share my top 5 fav photographers, and why! So here goes...
  1. Abi Q - She was actually the first photographer who's blog I started following. I fell in love with her images, and well... her! She's classy, fun, and loves people. She is the only other person I have found that loves the ... as much as me. I originally found her blog through her mothers. Which I think I might have found through someone else's? I'm still hoping to one day have a photo shoot with her. Hopefully sooner rather than later! She also turned me onto my next photographer, who turned me onto the next.

  2. Kevin Kubota - His images are true works of art. He has been a wedding photographer for over 20 years. He gets mad respect from his peers, and it's not hard to see why. He has his own set of photo shop actions that are um... amazing. He also owns Azuka books. Which I am proud to say I just ordered my first album from, and I'm working on a few more. He has a week long workshop that I am dieing to attend. He even does his workshop in Italy. If I had died and gone to heaven it would be a week long photography workshop in Italy, with Kevin Kubota.

  3. Jules Bianchi - Man how I ♥ Jule's. She is the epitome of cool to me. From her style, to clients, to her equally fabulous twin sister Joy. She is so cool, she doesn't even know it. One of my favorite memories as a photographer thus far is when I got to shadow shoot a wedding with her. I learned soooo much! She is a fabulous photographer, and even better person. One I'm proud to call my friend.

  4. Jazmine Star - What I love most about Jazmine is her blog. Her honesty, sincerity, and great story telling ability keeps me wanting more. Lucky for me she post every single day. I often times wish I could be as honest as she is. Truth be told I'm a bit of a chicken. But I'm working on it. Her clients love HER. That is the kind of photographer I aspire to be.

  5. Erika from Yellow Pear - If Erika reads this (which I doubt she will) she might feel like a bit of a wild card. But her photography is amazing. She inspires me. The kind of inspire that challenges me to kick it up a notch. Find new locations, lighting, props, angles, etc. She too has a gift of story telling. One I envy. If I had to take a guess (since it's my blog I can) I would have guessed her to be an English major or teacher. If not, she should be. Her writing is seriously that good.

Since post are boring without pictures here is one I took after I got a pedicure. It's not great, or profound. It just happens to be a snap shot. But... it makes me happy!

I did read it and I think you made my year! Thanks so much. I have been questioning myself lately, so this couldn't have come at a better moment. Thank you. Truly.

And I love your citrus orchard location below. Beautiful location and pictures.
