For everything in life, I am grateful. For whatever is to come, I am ready
— Mary Lenore Quigley

Mission San Juan Capistrano, founded in 1775, is a place of historical, cultural, and religious significance in Christianity.  It is also a source of inspiration and education for many who visit this place which is found nestled in the middle of a modernized town that is flooded with old world charm and whimsy.  

It seems hard to imagine that just inside the doors of the Mission stand hundreds of years of history, unique beauty and breathtaking ruins that could tell a million stories.  It's as though time stood still, right there in the middle of this small town.  

It was a really peaceful, inspiring and spiritual place.  Just as the park was ending the tours for the day and we were heading out, loads of people toting yoga mats and water bottles were gathering at the entrance to the Mission Gardens.  They waited there in line to take part in Yoga on the garden lawn - a summertime event they have.  Couldn't imagine a more peaceful and spiritual place to practice yoga, even if among so many.

Here are some of the images from our day there.  Looking forward to going back and spending a little more time there.

Well, hello there.  The dust is just beginning to settle and we can officially call ourselves Californians now. It's been exactly two weeks.  The months of preparation have finally paid off and we. have. arrived.  Ready to begin the next chapter.  

In between the unpacking and getting settled in we've ventured out to see what's around and how we fit in this unfamiliar place.  There is so much to see.  The foothills, the mountains, the beaches, the sunsets ... they are beyond beautiful. This life change has intensified my love for picture taking and story telling, beyond measure.  I am wholeheartedly excited to explore.

The flowers are in full bloom and warm days are pretty much the norm now. School is almost out and friends are beginning to make their summer plans. Flying here and driving there.

 

We’re doing the very same thing, only we have decided to move our family to Los Angeles this summer. Yup that’s right, as in Los Angeles, California … like the one that’s 3,000 miles away! After a lifetime in CT we’re looking forward to the exciting new adventures we’ll have.

 

Growing my own photography business has been a really fun and often unpredictable experience. Throughout the past 6 years I have evolved as an artist, gotten to know some totally amazing people and have experienced the success of being a small business owner. I am so thankful to those who have been a part of it all. Your confidence in me has been overwhelming … so, thank you for all of your support.


No matter the [near] perfect weather in California, beautiful beaches and surplus of things to do, Connecticut will always have my heart and I plan to come back often. I will also continue to service my CT/NY clients a couple of times a year. If you’re interested in connecting with me to talk about scheduling a session - please don’t hesitate to email.
