Find the beauty in the raw, organic moments.

My life changed in a fleeting moment which brought me to this place in time where I choose to live life to the fullest. I seek joy. I want to collect as many amazing slivers of life on this planet as I can. My current motto: Carpe fucking diem.

La Vida Creations was founded in 2004 by myself and my husband, Jeff. He unexpectedly passed away in 2016 from a brain aneurysm. The business we built together had to change if I wanted to continue what I love to do.

Looking back on what we created, I recognized a common thread in our body of work. Capturing the the most important moments in our clients’ lives. Moving forward, in my new normal, I’ve learned to find the beauty in life’s everyday moments because you never truly know when everything can change in a second.

Every day is filled with 86,400 opportunities to find something new…or find a new way to look at something old. The moment a new parent swaddles their baby for the first time in their home. The moment a chef expertly presents a signature dish for someone else’s delight. The moment a Parisian server carefully sets the café tables for the first meal of the day.

The rituals of life are pivotal moments that come together to define our existence. Some of these moments are more significant than others, but they’re all amazing in their own way.

Living life and discovering the raw beauty in the organic moments that are the fiber of our being are the things to drive me. Live the life. And appreciate every moment you have here to interact with other beings and make a difference.

Viva la vida.
