Veronica + Mom Session

I recently read “Laughter is the spark of the soul.” And I can't tell you how much fun and genuine laughter was experienced between my recent mother/daughter session with my friend Veronica and her mom. They have the kind of relationship that just makes you sigh, and reminds me so much of my mom and I (which is maybe why I love them so much). Its so important to me to photograph people the right way, to catch a glimpse of their character and soul in a photograph; they made it easy. I've known Veronica since elementary school days, and consider her one of my funniest friends (I even tell Jeremy "Veronica will think that's funny" in conversation, a lot!). We laugh a lot when we are together, and seeing her mom and her interact made me understand where she got it from (as well as her cuteness! they look so alike). So I was overjoyed that they asked me to photograph them together for her Dad's birthday. What a fun present! I hope you can spot the genuine-ness throughout the photos. Its magic.

10 things I love about Wednesdays

I realize in my previous "hump" day feature I said how relaxing my Wednesday's are. WRONG! Today was very busy! But I enjoyed every minute of it. First, I went to Disneyland with a friend to take some fun pictures. I've always dreamed of taking pictures there (seriously! if you are serious about modeling/engaged anything for me at Disneyland, email me!)

So first thing I love about Wed, red couches! I love bright furniture and disney had these sweet ones in a cola shop. Also, I couldn't dare to forget: the tea cups. I love dreamy and fantasy things, which is a no wonder why Alice is my favorite (big thanks to Shelby for modeling for me).

Next, recent sessions! I am loving my recent mother/daughter session I did the other day, as well as my Friday wedding. Editing them is a serious joy!

Also, my obsession with milk glass pedestals, and bridal style hair clips[]=tags&includes[]=title

Next, first looks for weddings! I try and convince all my brides to part take in this amazing and magical experience. Ugh. It makes me tear up. And! Wedding albums by blurb. They are an awesome company and I can't wait to give my brides their albums this summer!

Lastly, new fabric! I'm in the process of whipping up a couple treats to give away on here so stay tuned for those! And of course, Panera Bread. My best friend FINALLY came home from Texas yesterday, and we spent about 3 hours catching up on our summer! So good to have her back.

Saturday Trips

This Saturday Jer and I took a trip down to Balboa Island for one of our classic treats, balboa bars. Balboa bars are essentially an ice cream bar on a stick dipped in chocolate, and rolled in your choice of topping. Jeremy gets the frozen bananas, though. We've been going together since '05 and haven't been in quite some time. So we knew a Saturday in So Cal. at 103 temps was a perfect time to get the cool 77 degree beach weather going. Take a look at some snaps of the trip!

My delicious roasted almond balboa bar :) mmm

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Stay cool
