“ Bell’s Palsy ” This week’s theme was quite literal for me, as I faced a big scare about my face. On Wednesday morning, I woke up with the left side of my face paralyzed. My eye and mouth were hanging and it got worse quickly. I started panicking, was I having a stroke? After rushing to the doctor with an extremely slow bus, I found out I suffered from Bell’s Palsy (facial paralysis). As … Continue readingFace a fear
This week, I really wanted to honor my boyfriend Clint. Even though I’ve made thousands of photos of him during the years we’ve been together, he just had to be my model for this week’s theme “Man”. I’m very lucky to call him my partner in life, my best friend, and the person I call home. He is extremely kind, loyal, and even though he can be very irritating at times, he is the one … Continue readingMan
This week, I’ve asked my boyfriend to help me with the theme Distorted. It’s a genre I don’t shoot very often and I had trouble coming up with ideas that could work and got a little stressed about it. A couple of weeks ago, I started working at a new job and sometimes I feel like my head is about to explode with all the new information, impressions, and adjustments. I am very happy with … Continue readingDistorted
This is Poekie the Panda. A couple of years ago I got Poekie from my boyfriend.

One of the nightmares, a recurring one I had for years and years, was about a stairway in my childhood home. It was a dream about something that happened to me … Continue readingBlack and White

It’s the line I use to calm myself when ever I need it. I wanted to show how that moment feels, the moment just before I allow myself to “Just Breathe”.The moment you feel like you’re from outside looking in, while … Continue readingJust Breathe..
When I think about “Music” and how important that is in my life, I also think of my brother-in-law, Tom, who is a brilliant musician, amazing person and an awesome dad and partner. Tom made all the important events with my family so special: He turned a whole restaurant into a concert during Christmas dinner and parties into improv jamming. He played at family weddings, birthdays, live with his bands and he made the difficult … Continue readingMusic
For me, this week flew by in a blink of an eye. I’ve had lots of appointments, new opportunities and even accomplished some big (life) goals! In all the chaos, I’ve only had a few peaceful moments where I could just sit down and enjoy the stillness around me. This was one of those moments. A moment where the platform at the train station was completely abandoned, empty and silent, just before some new trains … Continue readingA Perfect, Little Moment
