Every week, me and this crazy ass kid go bike riding.
Isaiah is in a trailer behind me singing to himself. Lol

I looove this time with her.

We play games, laugh, and just enjoy the beautiful weather that Phoenix has to offer.
I’m so grateful I am able to be a part of her life, even in these small moments.

I love you so much, baby girl.


Belly dancing can make us come alive.

I love the way I feel when I dance.
I love the way I connect with my body.
I love how it’s given me so much confidence.
I especially love how it woke me up to seeing how amazing I am.

It’s one of those dances that makes you feel beautiful so quickly. Because it encourages us to own the body that we’re in…on that day, in that moment.

Thank you Raqs Sharqi for helping me come alive.
I wholeheartedly and truly love you.

I felt amazing in my photo shoot.

I was glowing.
I felt like my angles were really captured and my true essence came out.
I love when a photographer can do that.

The lighting was perfect.
I can’t wait to use these for my next fliers.
