Even though Michael and I prepared a lot for this moving, some days were very hard and stressful…in less then 2 months we stayed in 4 different places, flight connections were lost, important documents mistakenly packed with our household goods…and the list goes on and on. Every single day started like this “what do we have to sort it out today?”…nothing was easy, the amount of paperwork was ginourmous…and not to mention the emotional part of saying good-bye to dear friends…and not knowing if I will ever see them again…so hard to move every 3 years…some days I just felt like crawling into bed and hiding under the covers…

And then…there were the other days…the ones that we were extremely excited for a new adventure. The days with beautiful sunsets and ice cream on the porch, coffee at Barnes & Noble or watching a marathon of reality shows…oh I love reality shows! The days I met such kind people and I sat under the sun feeling grateful for being in a warmer place. And in the middle of all this craziness, a very important thing happened…we bought our first house!!!! And all the roller coaster of emotions paid of! I am so proud of Michael and I…we planned and saved so much for this day. I’m super happy to say that we are homeowners! 🙂

This was the second time I spent my birthday in the middle of a moving…and this time was super special, we got our furniture delivered on my birthday and we spent the day opening boxes, when we found the plates and silverware we stopped and sang happy birthday to me! 😀 Just the two of us, our dreams and plans for the future.

I had a client who once told me that a military change of station can make or break a couple…and I’m happy to say this is making my relationship with Michael stronger. And I feel blessed! ♥

Life is slowly settling down again.

Love, Carol.




When I saw this amazing sunset from my hotel window today, all I could think was how grateful I am that so many wonderful people crossed my path during these 3 years in Germany…you helped me to become a better person and I will carry a little bit of every single one of you in my heart! Thank you for everything! ♥♥♥

Love, Carol.

Kristina & Kyle are expecting they first baby, a boy! ♥ They are such a nice, relaxed and stylish couple! And I love to photograph people that kind of forget that I’m around and just enjoy each other’s company! They would look at each other and start giggling…hehehehe…love it!!! 🙂

Kristina is also a photographer! I feel so honored when photographers ask me to capture their special moments! Well…I have to be honest…it is nerve wrecking! hehehehehe

Kristina & Kyle, thank you so much! I had an amazing time with you! I’m so happy we decided to face the bad weather and do the session! The weather cleared up and you guys rocked!!! Here are a few images of the day! I hope with my heart that you like them! 🙂

Carol 🙂

    Oh my these are my favorites!! I LOVE them!! Great work Carol!ReplyCancel

They are both from Miami…Jorge proposed to Lilia a few days before getting transferred to Germany. After 4 months apart from each other Lilia came to spend the Holidays and it was so good to see them together and enjoying each other! ♥ Far away relationships are never easy, but I think when it is meant to be, it is meant to be! ♥

Here are a few images of the day! Lilia and Jorge, thank you for trusting me! I feel honored to be able to tell your love story! 🙂

    Lil & Jorgie Porgie, you guys look like true Germans! You guys look great!!! Congrats!!!!ReplyCancel

They met here in Germany, he proposed by the windmills and they’ve been married for 8 years!!! ♥ Margaret and Julian have two beautiful kids and it brings joy to my heart to see their love for each other. Julian is this super relaxed guy and Margaret is the nicest person I know!!! She is so stylish, she rocked out a Christian Louboutin shoes on the photo session!!! Oh yes! I’m in love with her shoes!!!

Margaret is also a photographer, she does an amazing job with families!!! She learned how to photograph when she was 13 years old on a vintage camera that belonged to her uncle, who died on the Vietnam War serving as a combat photographer. I love that she included the camera in her photo session! It made everything even more special!

Margaret and Julian, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I had an amazing time photographing you! Your images bring a smile to my face! 🙂
