The Holidays are my favorite time of year to have family and friends gather at my home. I know that traveling can sometimes be an unpleasant experience. I remember countless times arriving at a destination tired and annoyed after traveling. When overnight guests visit, I want them to relax and enjoy themselves. A guest room welcome basket can instantly make people feel at home. It’s a thoughtful way to pamper your guests. So where do you start?
What a fun morning shoot, working with Tracey Edmonds and giving away Marie Todd Candles to Extra’s TV Audience at Universal Studios. A special thanks to ExtraTV’s crew, who made me feel right at home!

This summer was a whirlwind of travel and inspiration. I had the opportunity to travel with two wonderful friends who are also an amazing photography team. BJ Formento and Richeille Formento beautifully captured Marie Todd jewelry in one of my favorite cities in the world, Paris. Enjoy their beautiful video Love Letters to Paris.
Earlier in the year, I was anticipating a very quiet summer. Little did I know I would end up on an inspirational adventure that would take me to Paris, Morocco and NYC. I had the pleasure of working with a phenomenal photographer BJ Formento and his stylish, talented wife Richeille Formento. Together, with our wonderful models, we explored the sights and sounds of Paris and the hidden treasures of Morocco. There was constant visual stimulation and experiences. Within a 24 hour period I had worked with a lamb, monkey and camel, something I never thought I would write about.
What began as a simple photographic trip turned into a journey filled with inspiration, growth and friendships. I love that I experienced so many treasured moments that will always make me (and my camel) smile.
