Welcome! Here's just a chance to get to know a little more about me and what I'm photographing!
Kim and Mark are getting married in about one month! I've known Kim and Mark for a few years now and am getting so excited for their big day! We took their lovely engagement photos in Kim's parent's yard and property in Camino, CA near Apple Hill. I'm excited to see the backyard transform into a gorgeous wedding for these two in July.
Lots of exciting things are happening this month! Engagement photos on the warmest day of the month and hopefully photos at Shady Lady's exclusive 3 year anniversary party this week followed by one more week of work and FINALLY vacation! My amazing friend, Natalie, is planning her visit from Ohio! We're going to do all the touristy San Francisco things along with the not-so-touristy things like going to the Marin Headlands and finding secret views of the city. I've never been a full on tourist in San Francisco so I'm actually pretty excited to go and tour places and see some attractions I haven't visited before. We even booked an eco/pet friendly hotel in the event my puppy comes out with us. After she leaves I've got a CD release party at Marilyn's Downtown to photograph and I'm rounding out my month by entering my puppy in a fun run with a friend! April is shaping up to be an amazing month already.
Not to be completely biased but isn't my niece adorable? Her mom and I went down to the park for some cute Easter photos and she was an absolute doll! Working with kids is so much fun and far more fun when the kid is your own cutie niece. The best part was being able to spend some quality time with my sister and niece on a beautiful day.
Gotta love spring. We've been playing lots and lots of fetch lately. Mostly in an empty parking lot downtown. I find when I take the puppy to the park across the street he gets way too into sniffing and not so into fetching. Luckily the parking lot is empty after 6 and on weekends so he's got lots of room to fetch his ball and get out some of that pent up puppy energy.
Brian Rogers, Sam Phelps and Cole Dutcher started playing in their new band, The League quite a few months ago. Unfortunately I was never able to catch a show because they seemed to only play happy hours at The Torch Club in downtown. Last week, however, they played an actual late night show on a non-work night. What a show it was. Not only did they play some of the best funk I've heard but they had a lot of musician friends show and share the stage throughout the night. The crowd loved the music and people danced till closing. I'd say their first late night show was a great success.
I've noticed over the past few years most of what I talk and Facebook about revolves around the weather and my pets. And this week is no different. Earlier this week it snowed at my office. Two days later I wore a dress because it was 74 out. Today is no different. Bright blue skies, warm air and the sun is shining bright. I love when it's like this. It's hard to feel anything but joy because it's gorgeous out and warm enough to take walks. Yesterday the puppy and I swam in the river. Well, HE swam. I watched from the shore. Warm or not outside that water was freezing. Today we're going out for a long walk and brunch. He's going through puppy adolescence so the more I take him out for walks and runs the better he seems to behave. It's like living with a 13 year old 24/7. I knew when I got a dog that I'd be outside far more than I'd be inside and that's exactly what I wanted. I like it outside, I do, but it's tough to be out there alone when you're not walking a dog, jogging (yeah right...) or taking photos. Especially in the evening. I guess what I'm rambling about is that I'm excited to be going outdoors, taking in the warm air, appreciating the beauty and seeing some new faces with my half-naughty half-awesome dog in tow.
I spent my evening last night nerding out on all the lovely samples I'm ordering this month. Samples of papers, photos, packaging, etc. My mind has been swimming with thoughts of color options, paper stocks, photo boxes ever since. I'm excited to put some things together and maybe update my site a bit more! Ta ta for now!
I feel rainy Sundays are the perfect day to lounge, catch up on some cleaning and do some laundry. Mr. Garbagio expressed his agreement in my Sunday plan by lounging IN the laundry for most the day.
We were supposed to have rain all afternoon and evening today. Luckily we only had blue skies, puffy clouds and lots of sunshine making it a perfect day to take the dogs out. My friend, Michelle, her dog, Tuli, my puppy, Mr. Garbagio and I took a walk to Capitol Park. It was so nice out for the end of January. We couldn't have asked for a better puppy play date.
