The Cioes

It’s not very often I get to see my cousins who live across the country, but when I do they make sure to stay for a month :). We had a fun, impromptu photo session on Scarborough Beach a couple of weeks ago. We tried to recreate a photo shoot they had when they were just toddlers. Something tells me it was much more difficult to get them to listen to direction now that they are in their teens, but nonetheless, these kids are never lacking in personality and sass.

Inner Guide

What I love most about doing what I do is connecting with the most amazing, talented, thoughtful people. I love how the universe just brings us all together exactly when the timing is right. I met Lynda through a dear friend and she was looking for some updated headshots and product shots. She wanted a natural, easy feel while also being able to showcase her incredible co-creation … The Inner Guide planners.  These beautiful planners help individuals gain self-awareness, clarity of vision and achievement of goals.  We ventured out in Matunuck RI for these shots.

The Robin Story

Last month I met up with one of my favorite families. They are so sweet, candid, playful and always seem to find the most magical places as our backdrop.  This summer we chose the incredible Fantastic Umbrella Factory in RI, its magical setting was perfect for these amazing souls. It didn’t even feel like we were in Rhode Island anymore. Enjoy peeking in…

Passion Peoples Project

Passion People’s Project
A social media path to know and to connect. Consisting of a soulful journey filled with strangers sharing about what gives them life… what inspires them,  and what makes them feel most alive. This idea came to me while traveling to the West Coast recently. It’s actually something that has sort of been brewing inside of me for some time now. I sometimes get these moments of freedom where my mind goes to another level of thinking rather than just being on track, working the daily routine and grind. It’s in those moments where I start to wonder about what my purpose is. What brings me the most joy? What makes me feel those fleeting seconds of pure, egoless, goosebumbs of deep happiness?
Isn’t that what it’s all about?
We’re not meant to run on a treadmill all day everyday.  We are talented. We are flawed. We are givers. We are dream chasers. We tend to get caught up in this idea that money and “stuff” / materials will bring us all the love and all the fulfillment we could ever need.  The concept of PPP is to try to dig through that idea.
What were you like as a kid, when nothing mattered, when the ego was quiet?
The idea is to get people to think more deeply about what their purpose is here, rather than just following social standards. To unlock what lights their soul on fire and to create a deeper inner dialogue which will hopefully challenge people to live their most authentic life.
