A time to dream, A time to live the dream.

There are cycles and changes in our lives all the time.
There are times when we are asleep, hibernating, there are times of growing....
There are times when you get discouraged...and just plain up impatient....
There are times when you spend so much time comparing your life to others...that you always forget that you have YOUR life to live too....
We have all been given a chance to live a dream....
It doesn't always make sense, but it should make some sense to you.
It should shake and quake your heart if you cannot do this dream inside you.
It should make you uncomfortable, even though it is the right thing and the true thing for you.
The unknown usually IS uncomfortable.
All I know is - I'm tasting the next year 2011...and it is good.
I cannot believe the things I'll be walking into.
The things that won't make sense to you, but PERFECT sense to me.
I've spent 34 years to get here.
Wish I could have come here sooner, but you know that timing is everything.
I can't wait for this next year.
May YOUR year be a year of awesomeness, of dreams coming true and happiness and joy, wherever you are. 

Much Love

What is going down SATURDAY NITEEEEEEEE? :)


Rarmai Dallas-Fort Worth Area Photographer -

Jen's Photo Booth Experiences.....

So when I get the FUN honor of shooting "Photo Booth" style...I usually try to see what can happen in the space I'm in.  Sometimes I keep it simple, other times I let myself go on a decoration spree.  This time, it being so close and i mean CLOSE to Christmas - I opted for the Christmas paper and decorations along with my wondeful collaborator Sherry - we created a simple and fun scene fit for all those to enjoy. 

I'm glad to be around the creative energy that is Art Love Magic, because I usually get to have fun without even trying.  It is like watching things happen and just sitting back & snapping.  Other times, I get to direct or zoom in on someone's features if they let me. :)  I understand there is a lot of trust when it comes to the photographer and the client.  I just don't think about it.  I usually throw myself out there heart & soul and see what happens.

So forgive me if I move fast....:)

Jen's Photo Booth Experiences:

"Where you can get tangled up in decorations and not get into trouble!"
"Where snowflakes and sunglasses become a theme of the evening"
"Where you can BE yourself!"  (Eddie's first time in booth EVER!)
"Where friends can laugh and make silly faces all nite"....
"Where hyper-creativity can be cool, like this picture above"
"Where you think you are having a bad hair day, but really it is gorgeous, especially when standing next to Josh."
So there you have some fun pictures and captions from my experiences.
Really, it is not me, but when YOU bring yourself and interact with me is when the Imagery comes to life.

My tips for the rest of 2010:

When it comes to booking your next Photographer
-realize that you bring something to the table too!
-don't hesitate to bring ideas & creativity to the scene!
-what may look "bad" to you, can actually be gorgeous in art.
-embrace your own BEAUTY within.  *****IMPORTANT*****

Have a Merry Merry Christmas !!!!!!

Love Jen

A futuristic outlook into 2011...

In this very last month of wildness....
I'm in the process of trying to stay focused on the tasks at hand...
the things to be written, produced, thought about...

Change is the hardest, most fulfilling thing we do....i'd like to say it is easy to stay where I am, but it is not my destiny...I'm meant for more....I've got more potential to unlock...

I'm just ready to live the dreams in reality...more and more.
I can't wait. :)

It has been a long road of 34 years to get here...and I'm thankful. :)

"Tis the season" *smile*

Tis the be jolly and merry and bright!
I had to start looking at some cards on my store to see what was out there...and in my fun...i found this card that seemed to fit laughingly with this photo. :) It was just one of those cute moments where the mom had bought her some wonderful things from the Funky Finds...and we wrapped her up...and I snapped this face.  So awesome.
I don't claim to be the best, but I definitely claim to have FUN when working. :) 

I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving start off the end of this year with fun, family and...we all have something to be thankful for.

To start, I'm thankful for my husband....whom is my partner in love.

"God loves you, so what does it matter if people don't like you?"....

That was a nice quickie message today. hahaah!  I am always amused at Joyce Meyer and how God uses her completely to speak to those of us that need to laugh...and yet recieve God's word at the same time.  I've been in that place of it seems only fitting...that when I hear, I have to laugh too. :) 

There are changes coming soon...and new things coming into light for myself and my business.  I'm looking forward to that next level more and is just the PROCESS of getting there always seems to be so labor intensive internally...that I have avoided it.  So, I'm aiming to ignore the fears and no matter how much it may hurt, strain, poke and prod....I gotta get these things done....or I'm going nowhere.

I don't know about you, but I don't like being STUCK in places where I know my destiny is not.  I don't like hopping on the merry-go-round of situations that keep me going in circles...and never getting anywhere on the path that has been laid out.  I'm optimistic AND trusting God that all things are working for my good....

I've done a lot of years of sowing...into so many lives....and I still do, but now is the time for me to step away for a while and get some things knocked out for my future.  I know that it is all good, and it is all in good timing.  Never fear, when I come back from the covering of the cloud - it is going to be is going to be EXACTLY where I needed to be.  Thanks to all my friends for being patient with me. :) 

Until next time....................

I leave you with some little collages I was playing with...I thought they looked really cool!  I have never used templates or anything like that - so this is my first. :)

"This means something, this is important"...

I'm really in awe of things that kinda are moving my way.  I had prayed for an opportunity to move into a place where I needed to be, and I got one of my answers.  I know that my purpose is multi-tiered and functional in several areas, but just having this ONE piece fall into place really just lit me up.  So much so - I could not WAIT to get my information out there and going full steam ahead. :)

In good time, I'll reveal that part of my life.
For now, I'm keeping it for me. :)

All i really want is to truly find my place that I can thrive into what I'm called to do - the searching part gets SO exhausting...and then the waiting...and searching...and finally God said, sit down. :)  I sat down...and this week got 1 piece of the puzzle and immediately jumped on it.  I can't tell you the joy inside when it happened too.  I look forward to MORE of this, and soon too.

Before I know it, the dreams I've had will make sense.

Before you know it, I'll be *poof* :) hahaha!

Thanks to all my friends/family that support me - I couldn't do it without you.

Next up....the sky is not the limit. :) - this is me, in "bloom" :) *smile*

and here is me...."behind the cloud" - still shining, but covered by God's presence in order to shine even brighter when my time comes. :)
 took this inside the Orlando airport - and i sat by the window to keep "warm" and take in the light..and all of the sudden...this LITTLE cloud completely covers it.  The light is seemingly gone, but still peering out past it.  God showed me that this is me.  I'm totally covered by him, still shining, but will be even brighter when this next "move" of what i'm doing happens.

He knows I like visuals. :)
Just talking about it gets me excited.

Rock ON.

Busyness or Business.

It came to me ponder this....

Are you about busyness or business?

Does being "busy" mean you are successful?

Does NOT being "busy" mean you are successful?

I believe some of us just reach seasons of time set apart to give ourselves a break where we can take a good look at our visions & what we are doing and WHY we are doing it.

We don't have time, because we don't make time.
We can ALL make time.

Your "busyness" is your choice.
Your life can be as busy or not as you want it to be.

You can dictate your weeks & months and how productive or non-productive you want to be.
You can also IGNORE the very things you know you need to do, by staying busy.

Herez to seeking and finding.
that restful place of our busyness and business.
Quality over Quantity.
Rest easy knowing, life can go on - you don't have to be that center of attention all the time.

Congratulations to Leigh Ann and Michael!

What a weekend this was!  I've been continually challenged and inspired by what I do for a living.  I was certainly BOTH this weekend.  Without the help of my assistants Joy and Sherry, I'm pretty sure I would not have been able to get everything I had needed to make this event complete.  :)

So after long waiting, I finally get to reveal the AWESOME bridal portraits and artwork I have going for Leigh Ann....

You can see the entire gallery HERE:

You can also see the beginning stages of their wedding photos at THIS gallery!

I'll never forget over a year ago when she hired me to do the photos.  It was an amazing journey watching her life unfold and NOW she is married to the love of her life.  It was an honor to shoot their wedding and watch them commit their lives together forever. :)

More pictures to come this week. :)

What is GREAT about being a photographer & artist....

I cannot tell you the fun I had this weekend at Sherry's wedding...when you look at this photo - think about it!  She definitely encouraged me to wear my striped socks and just have fun.  Here we are, walking back into the building wrapping up our quick bride pictures outside.  I may have even been holding her dress. :)  I enjoyed serving them as my clients and friends. :) 

We had SO much fun.  You cannot deny the beauty as their pictures come to life here on their album:

Congrats to Conor & Sherry!

This is the beginning of a wonderful months of wedded bliss....I got to start my month off with Conor & Sherry. A very special couple whom I've had the pleasure of being friends with for a little while now.  I saw them get engaged...and was there the day it happened.  I also have seen Sherry's life & creativity unfold over these past months and have gotten to work with her several times now.  I have to say it was a happy collision of our paths.  We have had so much fun getting to work/know each other so it was only fitting that she had asked me to do their wedding photos.  I could NOT resist.  :)  I will be working on them today...and uploading their personal gallery to follow....
For those of you that were there, you KNOW the love that is there between them...
I look forward to seeing how their love & marriage blossoms!!!!

Friday, October 1, 2010

Let Oct. 2nd begin!!!!!!!!!

So I was asked to do the wedding photography of Sherry & Conor....
I can't wait to get there tomorrow and start experiencing that entire day!!!!
I know it will be one of the coolest weddings of the year - simply because I know them and most of the people that are going to be there.  How fun is that? 

Herez to YOU Conor & Sherry...
may your relationship grow stronger and may your MARRIAGE be amazing and that you experience half of what I've experienced in mine....:)  All my love and all the best!!!!

See YOU TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!

I decided to create....on 9/22. :)

I decided to create last nite and took myself on a journey of images and light. These have no names or themes, but color and light are 2 of my favorite things to work with. There is ONE main image I used repeatedly - and the others are in there as parts as well. I believe I used up to 3 of my photographs in this. Yes, these are digital PHOTOGRAPHS turned into art. :) created by Rarmai Photography 9/22/2010.

I already have a request from a bride that I make one for her out of her bridal images.  Hey, I'm all for that!
Yes the face is me...and I see this as a "sword" of light.
With swirls of color.

I am the tool God uses to paint the world with. :)
PS sorry about the quality - the compression on FACEBOOK usually trashes it out. :)

You can see the gallery here:

Artistic Connectiveness.

What I've been going through lately is an awareness of my disconnect.
I was moving & shaking along  for 2 years without any inkling of the Blue Man in my life.  No music, No thoughts, No visual stimulations.  I own their dvds and own their cds, but I did not listen to any of it.  I figured the more I deprived myself, the MORE I would appreciate them when/if they came back.

I know this to be true.  The connection was as if it never left...I was immediately awakened to the things I had missed, the senses that needed to be touched by the very hand of God in my life using them.  I missed that connectiveness I had with their productions and even more, the fans I had grown to love from afar.

Tonite I'll be at the show.
Thursday I'll be at the show.

If you have never seen their show ever, take advantage of this CREATIVE opportunity!
They are at the ATTPAC.ORG - go get some tickets that range anywhere from $25-$150. 

Get connected. Go deeper.  Be the LOVE you are seeking. :)

from last week!!!!

Standing on your own pedastal!

I've come to realize there is a part of my heart that had been locked away....
I had not "fed" it in a long time.
The Blue Man Group usually awaken that part of my heart of sillyness, dancing, loud tribal drumming music, visual eye candy....and so much more.

I realize that I still have many dreams inside locked up that are being unlocked.
I know desires and passions are put there for a reason AND a season.
I was on my way home yesterday just thanking God for the opportunities to watch Him work in my life...and seeing how I can benefit from being on this earth, just by being who i am, FREE to share his love with whomever crosses my path.

I also realize - I have to be myself and I have to move whenever God says move.  I know that I've held onto many offenses and hurts in my life....and sitting here staring at this computer screen reminds me of those sores I have.  I think it is better to walk away and be healed, so that I can be healthy again - rather than focus on those negatives that hold me back.  So here I am, walking away from the hurts/pains/ of these situations...bringing myself into a new light...where the darkness can flee forever.

I love my Blue Man friends dearly.  To re-connect with them at a show was the world to me.  That inner part of my heart was beaming, blushing and just that CONNECTION you can have with others is amazing.  I know for me, it has always been deeper than just a show, but really loving people right where they are....for who they are...not what they can do for me...HELPING THEM be all they can be.

I give you the *pedastals*.
This image was inspired by another image of the blue men standing on a rooftop...each standing on their own individual elevators.  These are our elevators.  They ELEVATE us.  I'm ready for this next phase of elevation.  Actually, to be more specific - I'm now enjoying the PROCESS of elevation.  It is taking me places I wouldn't have guessed...and definitely putting me in the path of people (blue included) that I did not expect.

Why would I not share?

Thank you for all your support.

Part of my life inspiration...

comes from the Theater/Concert Productions of the Blue Man Group....
I stumbled on them by accident in them in 1999...and then participated in 2000 and beyond.  There have been many ups & downs and connections made over these years.

It has come to my attention that part of what I love about blue man is the people I do get to connect with.
GREAT people with GREAT hearts. ;)

Thanks to EVERYONE this evening.
I wish I could name you all.
I feel loved.

Thank you for an amazing evening....and I cannot wait for TOMORROW and the next show we go to!
