Alloway New Jersey Nicole ~ Finding Peace within

 “True and lasting inner peace can never be found in external things. It can only be found within. And then, once we find and nurture it with ourselves, it radiates outward.” ~Buddha

  Nicole is lovely.  Her alluring beauty attracts your attention and as she opens her heart to you, it's evident that she is deep and soulful like poetry.  She is graceful, strong, and playful and her yoga practice is the perfect display of all of her inspiring attributes. 

  Nature is where Nicole finds peace as it tunes her into her inner child, and this gorgeous spring evening provided the perfect backdrop for our little adventure.  The cherry blossom petals carpeted the ground, the sun was shining, and the lush green of the forest captivated us.  We surrendered to the Earth's enchanted energy as we flowed and frolicked and what we were able to capture was nothing short of magic.  

  This experience was one of merriment as Nicole just became a registered yoga teacher.  Through her 200 hour journey she was able to find peace and a profound sense of self acceptance that radiates from within.  It was truly an honor to be a part of her journey and I will always cherish this heart felt celebration.

Cape May New Jersey Cheri~ Ocean soul

"Waves are inspiring not because they rise and fall, but because each time they fall they never fail to rise again." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  Cheri is exuberant, present, and joyful.  She has a contagious positive energy about her and she is an incredible storyteller.  I was captivated by her bravery and enthralled by her stories of travel, adversity, and adventure.  Her story is especially inspiring as she left a corporate six figure job to pursue her dreams.  Her journey has been full of adventures, overcoming obstacles, and risk taking and following her heart has taken her to amazing places. 

  The beach is Cheri's happy place, so I wanted to capture her in her element.  It was incredible to see her come alive as she allowed herself to be in the moment and one with the ocean.  She commanded the waves, she created art in the sand, and she meditated by the water.  She was playful, present, and free. 

  Sharing this experience with Cheri influenced me in so many ways.  I gained courage through her stories and inspiration through her adventures.  Working with her was an incredibly joyful and grounding experience.  I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to create this beautiful art with her.
