Photo of the Week No. 2: “Serving Face All Summer”

January 8, 2018

It’s time for another Photo of the Week, friends! For my second installment of 2018, I’m featuring my beautiful sister Ayesha. I call this one “Serving Face All Summer,” because that’s exactly what she did. This photo was taken at my job’s summer party at the world-famous Santa Monica Pier, which is all about fun in the sun. Amid all the day’s revelry, I captured my sister in one of her infamous “face-times.” To the naked eye, it may look unrehearsed but Esha is no stranger to working her angles. I’m quite proud of myself for catching those cheekbones hitting the light just right.

Out and About: My Brother’s Wedding Day

May 19, 2015

Temecula in May is usually warm and sunshine-y, but May 8 turned out to be an overcast, chilly day. However, my family’s love and excitement shone brightly, despite the weather that day. It was a big day for the Sabree/Ratcliff clan, as my youngest brother, Jamaal, got married to his fiancé, Breana. The rustic venue, Whispering Oaks Terrace, was quaint and we were very glad to find that the wedding would be taking place inside of the venue’s surprisingly intimate barn. This was a shabby chic dream, with white stringed lights, baby’s breath in mason jars, dim lights, white linen, wooden chests — the whole shebang. My brothers Robert and Karim were groomsmen, and nephew Jordan was the ring bearer. I’ll never forget how beautiful everyone looked and how much love filled the room. It was tangible. Long story short: My brother’s wedding day was incredible, and I’m so excited to see Jamaal and Breana grow as a couple. Welcome to our wacky, loving family, Bree! No take-backs. LOL.
