I'm so happy to have surprised my grandma on her 90th birthday down in Florida this past week. This is one of my favorite photos of her that I took on the beach by the house I grew up. Happy 90th birthday Lola Helen!
Meet Jennifer: Jennifer Ellision spent a great deal of her childhood staying up past her bedtime with a book and a flashlight. When she couldn’t find the stories she wanted to read, she started writing them. She loves words, has a soft spot for fanfiction, and is a master of the fangirl flail. She lives in South Florida with her family, where she lives in fear of temperatures below 60 Fahrenheit. She’s also one of the bloggers behind the book blog, The Bevy Bibliotheque.
Her debut Young Adult epic fantasy, Threats of Sky and Sea, will be available May 20, 2014.
About Threats of Sky and Sea:
Sixteen year-old Breena Perdit has spent her life as a barmaid, innocent to her father’s past and happily free from the Elemental gifts that would condemn her to a life in the Egrian King’s army. Until the day that three Elemental soldiers recognize her father as a traitor to the throne and Bree’s father is thrown in jail—along with the secrets from his last mission as the King’s assassin. Secrets that could help the King win a war. Secrets he refuses to share.
Desperate to escape before the King’s capricious whims prove her and her father’s downfall, Bree bargains with him: information for their lives. It’s a good trade. And she has faith she’ll get them both out of the King’s grasp with time.
But that was before the discovery that she’s the weapon the King’s been waiting for in his war.
Now, time is running out. To save her father’s life and understand her own, Bree must unravel the knot of her father’s past before the King takes his life– and uses her to bring a nation to its knees.
Im so excited to see this author photo of Jennifer we shot printed on her new book! A beautiful woman on the beaches of beautiful Boca Raton, Florida! Congrats Jen!
Flower power! This is my last shoot of 2013 and what a great way to end the year! I teamed up with Haute Blossom, flower accessories designed in South Florida and spent a day on a beautiful beach with designer, Victoria and her models/besties Carolina & Elyse. Here are some of my favorite photos from our session. Be sure to check out Haute Blossom!

Since the last post I have been trying to concentrate on getting my photography portfolio going. As much as I love filmmaking, I also love fashion photography. An old friend of mine, Tao Thoma, asked me to shoot with him and his friend Chris Yu. Tao is an experienced Model/Actor who was showing Chris the modeling ropes. It was nice having Tao on set to set an example on how to pose. I don't really have an idea of how to direct a guy pose (since I am a girl and new at this). Hehe.
We shot the photos around downtown Boca Raton. For lunch, we stopped by this awesome little restaurant called The Cheese Course. I am a firm believer in keeping talent and crew energized with food! My favorite part of the day was having the boys climb this huge banyan tree I found. I also was lucky enough to work with Makeup Artist, Jaclyn Carmela! You guys should check her out; she is also a pretty rad model! Good times!
Fun Fact: The night before the shoot I had some chinese takeout with my grandma. We each had a fortune cookie after our yummy dinner. My fortune happened to say "Every artist was once an amateur." I don't know about you, but that kinda freaked me out!
As you all may know I have recently moved to the DC area. Before I left I shot an ad campaign for one of Florida's hottest swimwear lines, Ola Feroz! Ola Feroz swimwear is handmade in the US by Jessica Garcia. She creates all different styles and has fabrics that can be mixed and matched! Best part is its affordable! Ladies, you will love this brand! Fellas, you will love it too ;)
