Keira made a summer bucket list of all the things she wants to do before school starts again. The most important thing on the list was to go to the beach. So we went to Bodega Bay and had a blast! Here is what our day looked like:
This week my friend Gracie graduated high school, and I got to photograph the celebration. What a beautiful outpouring of love and support I got to witness! Friends and family gathering as Gracie comes to the end of such a big portion of her life, and the beginning of the next chapter. As an added bonus, Gracie's older sister told her first about the newest addition to the family, expected in January 2014! What an incredible response!
Monday mornings are pretty awful.
Monday mornings when we run out of milk
and the girls wake up an hour before they're supposed to
and your husband has super bad allergies
and everyone is walking around like a hot mess...
well those Mondays just suck.
Obviously, we are having the latter, so to cheer myself up, I'm looking back to Friday night when we had our first bbq at our new house. The house we don't live in yet. We bought a new bbq and some amazing food and had the most amazing time getting a glimpse at what life will look like soon...
I got to spend a rainy day morning with the Day Family; Missy, Josh, and their three awesome little girls. Well, three and a half. Missy is having her fourth girl at the end of May! So, before they start their own production of Little Women, here is what their life looks like now. Making waffles and getting everyone dresses is a serious team effort in this house, but these parents make it look easy.
The Krist Family are no strangers to this blog, and many of my 10 on 10 photos were shot at their house! But this photo story is not about me, or my kids, and I am so excited to finally shoot just them. Let me tell you, this family is amazing. They are so down to earth, and laid back, so letting me come shoot them doing their thing in their home was the best. Things you should know about them are that Val is an incredibly talented artist and painted all their walls and wall art, besides the collections of the kids are that hangs all over, and Karl loves gardening and making U-tube videos about all kinds of things like juicing and healthy living. The day I shot them, Karl expanded his garden to his front yard and made this video about it!
If you're interested in a in-home session, let me know! I would love to come hang out and shoot what makes your family special!
This family session was done in the fall of last year, and with it being between a few weddings, I got behind and never blogged it. Until now, that is! Let's call it an early reminder to get your fall family sessions booked. ;)
Meet Oren. He lives on a farm with his Mum and Dad all the way up in Oregon. This day, it was raining off and on, but that did not deter him one bit! He explore every nook and cranny of his grandparents farm that he was visiting and did not leave one stone unturned. We had a blast together. And just look at those eyes! Ahh, swoon...
