Favorite Images from 2010

from personal photos to my photoshoots, here are my favorite photos from last year.

There are so many more images that I love from this past year, but of course I couldn’t put them all up. Can’t wait to see all the images that are created out of 2011.


My Summer in Photos

Here’s a review of my summer!

I always consider the start of summer as June 1st.  Two days later was the one anniversary of the day that changed my life.

A few days later we were in Gtown for RAFA’s WOZ. It was such a great experience to be in the show and to be on the artistic and technical side of the show. I’m grateful for everything I’ve learned and the people that I’ve met doing this production.

On the 16th of June, Max turned 16 and I gave him a fun scavenger hunt to find all his gifts.

Two days later we were off for the big apple!!

I attended the Rockette Intensive for my 3rd time and had an absolute blast. It was a truly a memorable experience and how special it was to find out that I was a Rockette in front of all the parents and students. I will never forget it.

Came home on the 4th of July to an excellent dinner with the fam.

Next day we celebrated Nikki‘s birthday!

Then started Singin in the Rain rehearsals!

Here’s what happened during the rehearsal process…

I went and took pictures of United Player’s production of Children of Eden.

I also got to see Miller’s production of Little Shop with a bunch of RAFA peeps! Jackery Delackery was the best ensemble kid ever!!

My sister Ashlyn, her husband, and my beautiful nieces came for a long visit. Here are some pictures from their stay (including a surprise birthday party for Ash!)

So as my summer comes to an end, I’m preparing for a number of things. Moving to New york, finding an apartment, minor eyelid surgery, and getting in shape for upcoming rehearsals… I’m so excited for these next few months. A little scared and nervous but so excited.

Hope your summer was a lovely one and that you’re pumped for this fall and winter season!

With “Aunt Jo” and Madi after Come Fly Away. Jo Loesser (widow of the great composer Frank Loesser) is Madi’s Great Aunt. She took us to Sardi’s and then the show and was such wonderful company!


“If you ever loose your mind, I’ll be kind”

Last night we had a lock-in up at dance hosted by SoCo. We played so many fun games, i can’t even begin to describe them all. I went crazy with the camera as I documented a very fun night. I highly recommend spending lots of time with your friends. It feels so good to laugh your head off, play stupid games, sing at the top of your lungs, and eat yummy food.

My lovely “Spongebob” team

It wouldn’t be a party without Aaron and Co. dancing Single Ladies

Kelsey showing us her talent in the talent show.


Playing, “Baby I love you but i just can’t smile” One of my personal favorites.
