Rachel ~ A Senior

This is Rachel. Rachel is a senior. Scratch that, she's a wacky senior. Hang on, scratch that again, she's a perfect senior who's figured out what school she wants to go to and what she wants to major in. She is way more advanced than when I was her age. Go Rachel! I work with Rachel's mom at my day job and was so excited when she asked me to take Rachel's senior portraits. We had so much fun that October afternoon playing in the field and on the train tracks. We made sure these pictures captured who she really is and I don't think there is any doubt.

Congrats on being a Senior Rachel! Enjoy it!

I'm back!

Sorry for the long hiatus, but I've been a little busy. My daughter, Ali, was born on September 1st at 5:42 pm. She weighed 7 lbs and 1 oz and was 19.5 inches long. She's three months old now and amazes me every day. I can't remember what my life was like before her.

So with out further ado, Internet world meet Ali, Ali meet Internet world.

Ali only 2 weeks old.

This one is just too cute, I have to share.

Baby Charlotte - A New Life

Let me introduce you to Baby Charlotte. Charlotte was so excited to meet her parents that she came 3 weeks early. Her parents could not be more ecstatic about their new daughter. She is an absolutely precious child full of life and love. I was fortunate enough to visit Charlotte and her parents back in October and be the first to take her pictures. She did so well during the shoot that she immediately passed out once we were done.
Congratulations, she's just perfect!

Elizabeth & Wakeford ~ A Teary Wedding continued

I started blogging about these two a little while ago and it just seemed to take me a while to figure out how I wanted to tell their story. I was a second shooter at this wedding with Temple Webber again. I was in charge of following the bride. We met at her parents home in West University and then drove over to the church that was down the street. Turns out that Wakeford's father was the minister at this church and he was going to marry them. I thought how sweet, but sad that he didn't get to sit and watch the process, but as soon as the ceremony started, I see why they asked him. His father said the sweetest things about his son and soon to be daughter-in-law. I couldn't help it but loose it up in the balcony. I'm surprised I got some shots in focus! Please enjoy the sweetness that is Elizabeth and Wakeford.

Elizabeth & Wakeford ~ A Teary Wedding

I wanted to post a quick preview of the wedding I am working on right now. Maybe its the pregnancy hormones or not, but I boo hooed during this ceremony! These two are so sweet together. I'll get to the rest soon, but here's a freebie for your holiday weekend.

I actually won something!

Something extra fun for this Friday. I am at work and its pretty slow. I walked past our copy room where we have our mail boxes and I see a rather large package in my box. I get excited and walk over to grab it, I never get anything fun at work. The return address is from Solvang, CA. I thought, "who's sending me something from Solvang?" I've been there before when I lived in CA with a group of girlfriends, but I don't know any one there. We went Christmas shopping because IT IS Christmas town, but I digress.  I go back to my desk and rip is open and low and behold, its the Jose Villa Wedding book I won from Hot Pink Brides. I am so excited that I have to share the whole experience with you.

Thank you Jose and Hot Pink Brides for choosing me to win this beautiful book. I will cherish it always.

Here's the link to the contest and you can see what I wrote.

Channing & Paul ~ A Perfect Small Wedding

Meet Channing and Paul. I met them that night since I was the second shooter for Temple Webber. I was able to spend alot of time with the bride and her family before the wedding. We were held up in the small room behind the chapel and we could only whisper. That's how small the church is. We quietly had some girl time and got Channing into her beautiful gown. Absolutely stunning doesn't even come close to how she looked. The ceremony was short and sweet and then we were whisked off to the Coronado Club downtown where guests were greeted by two trumpet player. The sound was amazing bouncing off all of the tall buildings. Then inside for an intimate seated dinner.
Congratulations Channing and Paul!
