Flaco Shalom + Mentoring + Sneak Peeks


Happy Tuesday loves!

Just wanted to stop in with a quick update on a few things going on!



Last week I blogged about my situation with artist Flaco Shalom and surprisingly he reached out via email after reading my post. We chatted a bit and he apologized and explained his situation. Honestly I still took the explanations as excuses that a contentious business owner shouldn’t give, but I am truly appreciative of him reaching out and trying to correct the situation.

I’d chalked this up as a loss- both my money and the art so I was willing to give him one last opportunity and if that’s not met, I’ll just get my money back and be done with it. Flaco said my portrait should be complete at the end of the month and if at that time it’s not done, I’ll receive a refund.

For all others who have purchased art from Flaco but didn’t receive it, PLEASE EMAIL HIM FOR YOUR REFUND: flacoshalom@icloud.com

Major lesson learned for me and I won’t be recommending anyone in the future unless I know they are a trustworthy business to deal with.

Summer is finally slowing down a tad for me this month, but not for long because next month will begin a busy stretch of fall travel and teaching!


I’m also super excited about teaching in LA this November! Two spots were gone the first day i announced it last week, so there are only two left!


These spots are going fast so please EMAIL ME ASAP if you’d like to snag one of the dates above and read all about what is covered in these group sessions HERE!


I haven’t been doing a whole lot of portraits lately with everything else going on so I really enjoyed “getting back to my roots” this past weekend :)

This lovely family came down from NJ for their family session and we had a blast! As their pictures show lol.

This beautiful couple came to me for their engagement photos and I couldn’t have been happier! I also couldn’t have been happier that this wall was soooo perfect for them!! I really had a moment yesterday when I edited this photo. This pleases the OCD within me immensely. The colors, the symmetry, the light… ahh! It’s just all so good lol.

Well that’s it for today :) I hope you have a lovely Tuesday despite the rain!

‘Til next time
