The Lifestylist's Favorite Camera Equiptment

Cameras are like cars... people are fiercely loyal to one brand, and for me that brand is Canon. I LOVE my 70D camera -it's one of the best investments this Lifestylist® has ever made.

Listed below are some of my favorite Canon products.

Canon - EOS 70D Black SLR Digital Camera Body Only

Canon - EOS 70D Black SLR Digital Camera Body Only

Canon - EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens (f/4.5 to 5.6)

Attend an airshow anywhere in the country and you're guaranteed to see this lens. The 100-400mm focal range makes it ideal for shooting moving aircraft, the L series glass is incredibly sharp and the dual-mode IS makes tracking a breeze.

Rob and Lydia Mondavi Debut Mondavi Home

I love being a matchmaker as well as a Lifestylist®. It is such a joy when I'm able to put people and companies together that can help each other and make each more successful.

Introducing Rob and Lydia Mondavi to the Thermador team was the perfect pairing - the first family of California wines needed to become more familiar with the iconic appliance company that revolutionized how today's home cook uses their kitchens.

Mondavi Home Is debuting this weekend in Beaufort, SC and the home that they have designed is stunning. Learn more about this great new brand here.

Fall Picnics


Spring and Fall are my favorite times of the year. Not too hot, not too cold, and there's a promise of change in the year.

Since we totally remodeled our outdoor spaces this year we've been enjoying picnics by the pool and it has been wonderful. Nothing fancy, just a great bottle of wine, some cheeses and a decadent dessert.
