Hidden Beauty





Today Denon & I visited the Indian Museum, a place I have been dying to visit for awhile now. This amazing museum is not at all far from our house so I don't see why it took us so long to finally get here. But anyway, it was a really unique and beautiful place to visit. There is so much to see and a lot to learn about. I myself am Cherokee, Navajo and apache indian so it was really nice to see all the different tribes and how they lived, hunted, and gathered different resources to live. If you live near Lake Los Angeles, I definitely recommend visiting this place!

The Music Room




Today has been a great day so far if I must say so myself! Ollie and I went upstairs to my music room and just danced around while listening to some of my music collection. Music has always been a very important part of me and who I am as a person. I began playing the guitar when I was eight years old and never stopped. My first guitar was given to me by my grandparents. It was a cheap electric guitar that I later sold because I didn't have an amp at the time and I wanted an acoustic electric. I ended up

Cottage Dwellers




Who doesn't love a nice little comfy cottage? I miss this place so much! I am currently planning a trip up north to Napa Valley for my 21st birthday with my love. I really want to go wine tasting in good o'l wine country. Im so excited to turn 21 and be able to legally drink. I'm not huge into drinking but I have always been interested in trying out different wine. I am on the hunt for the perfect place to stay while we visit Napa Valley. I have a few ideas in mind. Now its time to save up enough money so that we can have a good time. I plan on taking many photos. I am beyond excited to go and have a nice time with my love.

Desert Babe Photoshoot

Last fall I did a really neat photoshoot with a good friend of mine (favorite shoot I've done thus far). I have been a photographer for six years and counting. I love taking photos of people and seeing their reaction afterwards once they see how great the photos turned out. I would absolutely love to be a photographer full time and work with models, makeup brands, fashion brands, designers, etc. That is definitely a goal of mine. For now I continue to do photography on the side and love it with every ounce of my being. If you live in the Southern California area and would like to book a shoot with me or know someone that would like to book a photoshoot, email me at nessiereneejames@yahoo.com for more info! I'd love to bring your memories to life! Continue onto this post for more pictures from our first shoot together.

On the Blvd. With Ollie!


Hi guys! So the other day I went to the Blvd in my hometown with my dog Ollie just to look around and see what was new. I love exploring during the day, and lately because of what happened with my dog Comet, I haven't been able to go most places without my little emotional support buddy Ollie. He loves long car rides and whenever I try to leave the house without him, he gives me that face (you know which one I'm talking about) and it gets me every time! I don't have the heart to leave him right now so he's been having the best time following me around everywhere. I remember this day very vividly. I got ready and wanted to go out to take photos but I wasn't sure where to go. I decided on the

Tea Time!


Lately I have been drinking a lot more tea these days. Don't get me wrong, I definitely get a craving for soda here and there but I usually put that craving out by pouring hot tea over a cup of ice and adding a bit of raw sugar just to sweeten things up a bit. I also invested in some amazing loose tea leaves from tattle tea, I bought fifty dollars worth of this yummy tea (in six different flavors) and let me tell you, it was so worth every penny. I love it! I also use a french coffee press from bodum to brew whichever flavor/type I decide to make that day. My favorite tea so far is the Black Peach tea

I love you Comet


These last couple of days have been extremely difficult for me. My gorgeous, loving, most kind hearted baby boy passed away Monday night at 6:15pm. As many people know, Golden Retrievers are known to get into just about everything and well, Comet was no exception. First thing monday morning, I took Comet into the vet to get x-rays to see what was wrong with him because he wasn't eating nor was he interested in food at all which was a sign for me to take him ASAP because if you know Comet, you know he loved food, so not eating was not like him and it meant something was wrong. They took the x-rays and found that he had eaten part of a towel and they said they could remove it surgically and get him fixed up and that he would be okay. Before they would even touch him, they needed a deposit down of two thousand dollars. I didn't think twice, I put all of my emergency money on Comet and got him a spot for surgery that day at 3pm. I signed paper work
