Countdown to Summer Camp and TV Pilot - Hollywood

Happy Easter everyone! 

It's been a super busy week with work, school and other activities. 
Aaron is busy prepping for several scripts they are learning at Dallas Young Actors Studio.
He's excited to be in the TV Pilot this summer.
The Rising Stars Summer Camp over at his acting school is an awesome opportunity for any aspiring actor to get the professional training needed for their break into Hollywood. So many young actors have been successfully signed from the Dallas YAS school, it's unreal! 
You can check out the website above to read all about those success stories. 
But it's not all luck! There's hard work and training involved in becoming a professional TV/film actor. Think SNL on a local level.
At Dallas YAS, students get that professional training from someone who is actually in the business of ..well...showbiz! 
You can read more about the school's founder here in this article at 

We will be back next week with some updates on Aaron's journey into Hollywood!  In the meantime, don't forget to follow Aaron on his Instagram located on the top right over there >>>

Road to Becoming a Professional Actor

Hello everyone! I hope you've had a great week. We've been having some beautiful weather here in the Dallas area, let's hope it lasts! 
Last week I talked about how my son, Aaron, has had a dream of being a professional actor since the age of 5. 
And how we came across this magnificent school that he now attends. The Dallas Young Actors School trains your child and teen on a real soundstage to prepare them for TV and film work. This is not theater. We learned a lot from Ms. Linda Seto, the founder of the Dallas YAS about the differences between acting for the stage (far away) and TV/film (hello! camera close ups) 
In the three years he's been a student, Aaron has improved his acting skills and has experienced so much personal growth! 
The summer camps are a great way to train. They are filling up fast! Think SNL on fast track! At the end of the week, the students are taped in front of a live studio audience. 
There is nothing like this in the country and Aaron is so fortunate to be a part of this wonderful experience.
Here's a couple of shots from the Dallas YAS film shooting days

Kids Summer Activities-Dallas Acting Camp

Kids Summer Activities
I'm back today to talk some more about the Summer acting camp that my son will attend. It is being offered by his acting school Dallas Young Actors Studio in Dallas. It is an intense, week-long, acting camp that prepares your actor for the real world of working on a sound stage in front of a live studio audience. They actually tape the TV pilot, and you can be in the audience! How cool is that? 
There are several sessions being offered and because it's the only acting camp of its kind it gets filled quickly!
You can get more info here:
Aaron taped in last summer's TV Pilot called Welcome to Willowbrook Way. He played a very "misunderstood" character called "Mr. Keller". 
You can see some of his scenes on his IG<<click here
It's important for young actors to build a resume with actual experience and not just training. At Dallas YAS your young actor will gain that experience through acting in short independent films, TV pilots, and much more. 
We can't say enough good things about Dallas Young Actors Studio. Linda Seto, Founder and Executive Artistic Director, truly cares about each student, taking time to get to know them as the talented people that they are. Aaron has grown with so much self-confidence and has developed a maturity that is truly impressive for a 16 year old! 
Granted, he has always been a great kid! ;)
You can keep up to date with Aaron's school by following their youtube channel here
And if you know of any aspiring actors, please make sure you share this page with them too. 
See you next week!

Following Your Dreams -Summer Activities

My son Aaron is an aspiring actor. He has always wanted to act. As a child, he was constantly telling me he wanted to get his "face out there" and that "he was running out of time". He was 4 years old. I did not know where to take him to get his face out there as he requested. One day we googled kids acting schools dallas. Several websites came up but one in particular caught my eye. It was a story on a local TV channel about Dallas acting schools. The acting school is Dallas Young Actors Studio. This school is run by Linda Seto who has extensive experience in TV and production. Several kids have been discovered at her school and are actively working in Hollywood. If you want to learn more about the school you can go here.
So we went into Dallas and had Aaron audition to be placed in one of the classes. That was in 2017. He has loved every minute spent there! I have seen him grow and his self confidence increase like you wouldn't believe. He has acted in two short films and a TV/cable pilot. You can see clips in the links below:
We have to admit we still have a lot of learning to do! Myself, learning all about showbiz and how things work in the world of Hollywood and Aaron how to perfect his craft. 
I support him in his dream and hope to one day manage his career at his request. In the meantime, we both enjoy our weekly treks into Dallas and the acting studio. 
right now he is very excited to be acting in two TV pilots they will be shooting this summer as a part of DYAS' summer camps. So if you have an aspiring actor in your family, or if you are one yourself (there is an acting coach for adults too!)
do yourself a favor and contact Dallas Young Actors Studio and set up an audition and tour. 
It just may change your life :)

At the end of the week, actors will star in an original made for TV sitcom that is taped before a studio audience that the parents are invited to see.

BIZ for the Holidays and Getting Ready for Christmas

**This is a sponsored post**

Hey everyone! I'm excited to be back and share with you
some ideas for Holiday prep. It's been a whirlwind the last few months, especially with work and my photography business. 
So anywho, I haven't even put up my tree yet :(
While I was cleaning out some things from my garage, I noticed I had some very pretty white tablecloths that had yellowed over time.
I wanted to use them to set my holiday table. 
I almost threw them out until I remembered I could use BIZ to whiten them.

I brought them inside and filled my washing machine with hot water. 
I poured in about half a cup of BIZ Stainfighter and threw in the table cloths. I let them soak for about 30 minutes then ran them through a regular cycle. 

They came out so white and clean! 
I'm so happy I remembered I had BIZ and didn't throw them out. 

BIZ is the stain fighting, whitening solution for all your laundry needs. 
You can find more ideas on how to use BIZ Stain fighter here

There are so many uses for this wonderful product. BIZ has special ingredients that other detergents don't. Its ingredients help to fight more stains than other leading brands. 
 I will be back to share some more Holiday ideas with you soon!


I was given product to use in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

As you may already know, I am a photographer on my off days. 

I do a lot of family photography and this often involves small children, which many times requires me to kneel down on gravel, grass, etc.

Needless to say my jeans take quite a beating. (Thank goodness for the torn jeans craze right?)

To get those tough stains out, I just put a little bit of Biz stain fighter on the grass stain, rub it in a bit, and let it soak for about 5-10 minutes. I then run it through the wash with Biz as the detergent and voila! 

The stain is gone! I recently had to do this with a favorite t shirt I splattered with spaghetti sauce. AGH! I hadn't realized it until I got home and I thought for sure the shirt was ruined. 
Nope, I did the same thing, dab, rub, sit and wash it as usual.
T shirt is as good as new. Now you know that those greasy stains are harder to get out. With Biz stain fighter detergent it's as easy as 1-2-3.

I highly recommend this detergent. My mother has been using Biz ever since the 70s when I was a kid. She swears by it and now I do too.
Biz can also be used to tackle other cleaning problems around your home. 
It's great to clean your tub, tile and other hard surfaces, leaving them sparkling clean. 
To learn more about all the other uses for BIZ Stain Fighter, go here.

You can also get out tough stains from carpet! Watch this video to learn how.

I love sharing these laundry tips with you. I'll be back to share some cute Halloween projects I've been working on.

Until next time!

I was provided free product and/or compensation for my voluntary testimonial of this product. These are actual results and my opinions of the product are purely my own and based on my experience.
