Never forgetting the cost of freedom, we celebrate our fallen with much gratitude today. (➡️)

Shine on. 💫

Keep your face in the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you. Happy Friday! ☀️

"The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is practice." I love this quote because it shuts down every excuse in the book not be your best. Not "the" best, but YOUR best. It actually gives me hope and lets me dream. Because if I'm competing with the very best "me" I'm capable of being, all bets are on that I can achieve my best, my dreams, my goals. It means that if I fail at something, I can stand up again and push myself to move forward and do it again until I succeed. Yes, photographing Elisa with her harp in this field brought all of this to my mind. Because being a harpist takes dedication, desire and practice. And rising to the challenge of "practice no matter what" puts her in the winners circle of life. Congrats to Elisa on her upcoming graduation from high school! 🎓✨🎵

HEY! It's my birthday week and there's a CRAZY fun give-away over on the @VoiceYourBrand page worth $500 to one lucky photographer friend! Be sure to check it out.

And...for everyone else, let me share 29 things with you that you might not know about me since I'm turning 29...OKAY...NOT REALLY! And I won't even share that many because who has time for that?!
.
1. I married my husband after meeting him 😱💕5 weeks later. Hey, don't judge. We're together 25 years later and we still go to Disneyland together.
.
2. I'm an 80's girl to the core---without the 🙋🏼big hair anymore.
.
3. Before I had my dog 🐶Toby, I hated dogs. Now I love them and I talk baby-talk to my dog.
.
4. I hate kale. But I love frosting🍰. Duh, right?
.
5. I was born in California but was raised in Montana. Thus my love-affair with the 🏞mountains.
.
6. I'm an old sole at heart; I love listening to 🎶George Beverly Shea music. Sorry-not-sorry.
.
7. I built my photography 📸business by starting out selling portraits out of the trunk of my car without a studio. No kidding.
.
8. I lived in France 🇫🇷for a summer. I love all things Paris, oui oui.
.
9. My 2 favorite restaurants🍴 are LaHacienda in Chico, CA and Hoagieville in Missoula, MT
.
10. I grew up with horses🐎 in Montana and still have a passion for being around them. Thus, I love photographing girls with horses.
.
11. I'm actually an introvert and very shy. God doesn't believe👊🏼 me so He keeps putting on stages in front of thousands of people 🎙to speak.
.
12. I consider my role of "mom" 👩🏼to Tori & Jordan as being the most significant. They're now 24 & 22.
.
13. I'm a dreamer☁️ and believe things are possible if you truly believe they are.
.
14. I'm a night🌙 owl.
.
15. I live my life like this: God first🙏🏼, my family second, everything else after that. It makes life sweet. Like frosting (see #4 above).
.
PS: if you read this far and you are a photographer, don't forget to check out my $500 birthday give-away over @VoiceYourBrand ! To everyone else, thanks for being here! I appreciate all of my friends and clients so very much!

"Taking down Monday like..." Eric and his mom just left the studio after seeing all of his senior portraits! The one on the right was one of their faves (the one on the left was one of mine lol) 🌟✨🎓

More from Toran's dock-side session (➡️). Countdown to summer and all things adventurous! #bethatguy #terifodeseniors @toran.maronic #T3 ⛵️

Ask me what the best part of my job is and I'll tell you -- photographing someone who doesn't think they are photogenic. Alexandra, I loved photographing your smile, your laughter, your heart...and showing you how truly beautiful (what you call) "awkward" is. xo

Sometimes the future looks smooth as glass and you know exactly where you're headed. But sometimes it seems a little uncertain, like choppy water. Either way, when you walk God's plan for your life, the wind blows you in the right direction. #sailon #T3✨⛵️

"Deep in the enchanted forest lives this girl..." Can't even tell you how much I loved photographing Alexandra. Her hair, her style, her heart! #terifodeseniors 💚

Every year I have several moms ask me about the candy buffets I created for both Tori and Jordan's graduation parties and I've always said "I'll create a blog post some day"...well, today is the day! I just published my step-by-step "how to create a graduation party candy buffet" on the blog. All of my tips, ideas, and tons (TONS!) of resources for creating your own grad-party candy buffet! Link is in my profile here right here 👉🏼@terifode #graduationparty🎓 #graduation_party

Sparkle like you mean it...like this. Elisa gets to see her senior portraits next week! #terifodeseniors
