LOVE LOVE LOVE Beautiful Brides !!! / (Southern California Wedding Photographer)

Mrs. Bells family are some of my oldest friends. Her Momma & I raised our kids together. In fact some of our grown kiddos were "bestest" friends. If they weren't building forts at my house, they were mischievously cutting each others hair at hers. So I was thrilled to be able to share their special day in my own home. I was equally thrilled to be included in the choice of the time of day for their beautiful evening wedding. What wonderful sunset light to make an already model-like bride even more stunning.
A perfect sweet celebration of a loving family sharing their special memories with close friends.

Family is everything............

Summer Visit

Dad was spending the week at Scout camp, so Mom & the kiddos came to visit Nana.

Luckily as Nana I get a private performance of recitals I'll miss- being as they happen out

of state. So naturally my cuties have to have to play photo shoot with their Nana.

We even got Mister W to come pose for a few..........
I Love that sweeties are as silly as me. I'm lucky they understand my strange humor.

Thanks for the unexpected visit. We had FUN , didn't we ???

Oh My Gosh !!!! What a Beauty......

I've known for a while that I was going to have the privilege of taking Miss M's senior photos. She is such a beauty you can see why I have been so excited. I've been dreaming & planning her FUN photo session. She even emailed me some ideas of her own . I LOVE it when clients come with FUN ideas. I LOVE the challenge.

We had the first part of the shoot scheduled for this morning, but when all those crazy weathermen talked about the fierce storm that was to come, Miss M said perhaps we should reschedule. I agreed. (I have to admit, I was a little disappointed)
I saw Miss M this morning...I couldn't help myself... I begged her to come play in the snow with me............

I am sooooo glad she agreed.

52 Week Project............Week One -Gratitude

Photographers sometimes choose to do either a 365 (days in the year/Daily) or 52 (weeks in a year/weekly) project. They do this to push their creativity or to expand their skills.

I turned 52 this week so I have chosen this week to start my own 52 week Project. One photo per week just for me.

The last few years I have made it my personal goal to have an Attitude of Gratitude
I am the happiest when I look for the good...choose to be grateful..... You know, just simply to remember to "Count your Blessings"

The theme of my 52 project will be "Thanksgiving Daily." I worried it might seem a little braggy, but hopefully through this 52 week project you'll see as I am discovering in my "older" age- It's the simplest of things that truly make you happy.

WEEK ONE- I am grateful to have celebrated my Birthday with my ever growing family and enjoying sweets decorated by chubby four-year-old hands.
