This year I’m celebrating a special dad.
I’m looking for someone who is deserving of a special gift. I’m asking you to nominate your favorite deserving dad, please write a small snippet on why this dad deserves a special fathers day gift. This year I will be giving away one shoot for fathers day. The session will include a beautiful album featuring all the gorgeous pictures.Important information!
The submission timeframe is 6/8- 6/10 (not too long!) and the shoot will take place on either Sunday, June 13th or Monday, June 14th. This will ensure you receive your gift before Father’s Day.I will not be judging this, as always i like my contests to be fair and I often have people that I personally know entering into contests and special offers so I always use a third party. This year I will be using a friend who is completely unbiased, she will be the only one to read all the submissions … I will only read the final choice made by her.
Please submit your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org and use word DAD for the subject line. Tell us why your nomination is so special and deserving!
Looking up at the stars,
Your holding me in your arms.
I’m wrapped up so tight,
I could not escape with all my might.
You’re my protector; you’re my shield,
From life’s playing field.
I want to thank you from my heart,
I believe that nothing could ever tear us apart.

I’ve got so much to share! Lately I’ve been posting pictures on facebook because it’s so much easier and less time consuming. My wordpress blog takes FOREVER to upload a single picture, it’s so irritating and pushes my patience every time I blog. I may take some time tomorrow to list a ton of blog posts (spacing them by a day or two) that way I have something to share without the daily work!
Here’s a gorgeous family I recently photographed … loved the colors!

I met the funniest group of ladies last week! It was a ball, I shot for three hours straight and the entire time we kept the mood up and the kids pumped. Some were happier then others, but all in all I think we had a very successful shoot. Beth was an amazing hostess, treating her guests to yummy snacks and hot coffee … and her home was awesome!! Both Beth and I were on the same page as far as styling went for the shoot, she had amazing clothes on hand (I wish we were best buds so I could pick through her daughters closet) and of course we had a lot of fun kids with spunky attitudes.
Here is a very small sneak

I cannot believe I never shared this session! It seems crazy to think that I skipped over this super fun shoot. I love this family, in fact I just did their Valentines Day shoot and quickly was reminded just how much fun they are. I love how their holiday session came out …

This family was such a delight to photograph, even their beautiful dog Flash was a great little subject. We met on a super cold day, it looked like it could rain any second. We finished just before the sun was minutes away from peeking behind the mountains and the cold air was freezing. The weekend before was sunny and hot, you never know CA weather. The girls were troopers in their sleeveless tops and dresses. This entire family is gorgeous, Kim is insanely beautiful and her two kids are beautiful as well. Lucky family!!!

I was so sad today, I had to finally realize that I had to list two of our roosters on craigs list. City of LA does not permit Roosters (only hens) and when we ordered our chickens we blindly ordered and crossed our fingers we’d have more girls then boys, luck would have it we got 50/50. Our two girls are adorable but I really got used to having four chickens. Joe thinks I’m crazy for wanting any more then 2 but really I think we’ll need to order more to make up for our boys leaving us. The chickens are now 9 weeks old and so big! I’ll have to snap some pictures of them in their new nifty chicken coop that Joe built.
We are leaving this weekend, looking forward to finally relaxing. Next week the kids are off. I think I need to come up with a wake up rule, you know since we can sleep past 7 we should! 8:30 would be perfect for me
Katina and her family looked so sharp for their holiday pictures! The kids were dressed to the T and Miss Katina was working her pencil skirt and heels … girl had it going on!

well it took me one good week of working non stop to get caught up, have holiday cards ordered and delivered and get print orders out. Now it’s time to share all the amazing families I’ve been working with!!
The mix of vivid reds and yellows in this series of photos was so beautiful to me.
