I fell in {LOVE}

I have been searching for a nice camera bag for a while and i was never really satisfied by what was offered. I am a woman...when i think of a "BAG" I expect something nice.
I have several Photographer friends on Facebook and so many have talked about Kelly Moore and today I finally went on her page.
I have to say...I AM IN LOVE!!! I looked at all this bags and one is just everything that i have been looking for in a bag.

The Libby Bag

I am so thankful that there are woman out there like Kelly Moore. 
I love all of her work.

Fundraiser Garage Sale for Japan Victims on {Fort Irwin}

DKMS- {where leukemia meets its match}

Today I want to write about something that is really important to me.
The fight against Leukemia...
Last year i registered myself as a bone morrow donor... it was fast and easy...and it DOESN'T hurt at all!
If you want to know more about registering yourself as a bone morrow donor go to  DKMS Americas. DKMS is the largest Bone Morrow Donor Center in the world with over 2 Million registered Donors. But there are still thousands of people that are desperately searching for their match. Do you want to make a difference in this world?
Order your little kit and get swapped!!

My first week at our new home...Fort Irwin, California.

Hello everyone....

Its been a little over a week since I arrived at Fort Irwin and I got to be honest its not what i expected...its not that bad. I like it here...A LOT! I have heard so many bad stories about this place and so far i dont agree with it.
Yes its the desert but there is something about the desert that seems so beautiful to me.

So I am very happy that for the next few years I can call FORT IRWIN my home :)

Duhachek Wedding

Back in January i was honored to take the pictures of my dear friendsWedding.
It was 16hrs of hard but FUN work!
Their wedding was beutiful, the dress was stunning and family "adopted" us to their family.

I was a very traditional German wedding and I started with the preparation at the Hairdresser : 

after the Hairdresser we waited on the groom to arrive so i took the pictures of the bouquet and their wedding bands:

The Standesamt (court house) ceremony:

I found a little assistant in the grooms niece :) she was adorable

This is a german tradition at a wedding.

Between the courthouse ceremony we went to the Ludwigsburg Castle....

The Pictures turned out amazing.
And with my luck i almost pushed over one of these 50.000EURO vases... thank god nothing happend.
But it sure is a fun memory that i will be telling my grandchildren :)

The Church Ceremony/Baptism of their son.

And the reception... it sure was alot of fun :) And i am so glad i was a part of this

Their family made them a DIA Show, it was filled with smiles, laughter and tears.
Even i shed some :)

I wish them all the best in the future and i hope they will be happy forever :)
