Honestly, the best part of what I do is getting to meet the wonderful people that I do and getting to be part of such neat things in their lives! Above is a picture of Michael and Jennifer ... click on the image and see a slideshow from their session of some of my favorites! I love that Scully is included!!! Can't wait to meet Jayden when she arrives!

It's been a great weekend! I got so much done around my home ... I actually can't belief it .. must be because I know I'm going to be crazy busy in September. I'll be out of town for two weeks to goto LA to train with Pictage and Mike Colon. I'm so excited! But in September every Saturday I have a wedding, which totally rocks ... but man, life will be crazy! I have several clients whose babies are due in the next weeks too ... that is going to be excitting. I get to meet some new little ones just about every week next month!!! Got to love that.

This past week I meet a wonderful couple Michael and Jennifer ... they are expecting a little girl and it was so fun to get to meet them and look at their wedding pictures ... in fact we were married by the same wonderful man! Isn't that just too cool! As soon as I got home I busted in the door and told my husband! I think he thought I was a little strange .. nothing new there :-)

Tomorrow I get to go help my friend Kristen pick out a camera ... I can't wait to show her all the fun stuff ... which will she pick .. Nikon or Canon .. I'll keep you posted ;-) I'm taking her to my favorite local camera shop Camera Arts. The staff there totally ROCKS! Everyone there is great and helpful ... if you are looking for new gear in the Sacramento area I highly recommend them .. they really help you and don't make you feel like you are a goober if you have a silly question.

Okay, Isabel is calling for me to go watch Little Mermaid for the 159th time ... too bad I'm really not keeping track ... 'cause I bet I hold the world record!!! Good Night!

Whew! What a Saturday! This is the first Saturday in I don't know how long that I actually had to myself ... Well sorta ... I finally got to organize Mason's closet ... it has been my storage closet for my photography stuff for the last 5 years ... so you can only imagine the pain of giving up that space to clothes and shoes ... but he did need his own closet! And I purged toys from both Mason and Isabels room ... it is amazing how much junk they can collect for such little people!!!

Also, it's sorta funny ... so I have to share. I've been on a big quest to help others lately ... this morning when Isabel and I were heading to Target to grab a few things I was wondering how I would do that today and it was so odd because as we pulled into the parking lot there was an older man with his family and you could tell that he had locked his keys in the car ... I seized the day and offered my AAA to come and unlock the car ... he couldn't belive it! He was so thrilled ... said that these days people just don't stop and help anyone anymore ... I told him ... well my friend ... today someone stopped ... he smiled and nodded. It totally made my heart smile!

I got to visit my friend Barbara ... took her maternity shots today ... it was great fun and I actually got all three of her little ones and her growing belly in several shoots ... I wasn't sure if I'd have success, but it all came together and it was great fun! On my way home I got to visit with my best bud Jenny who I don't get to see much ... I can't belief how Sammy and Nick have grown!! It was nice to see them all.

So, all in all this Saturday has been great! I'm going to finish this up, finish my glass of great wine that my husband poured me and head to bed to finish the book 'Never Eat Alone' which I have to say has been very interesting.

Wow! I can believe it's been so long since I've checked in! Life just gets so busy ... a good busy .. but busy non the less! I always know I've got to check myself when I've been skipping out on the gym and am glued literally to the computer! It's funny, my buddy Chip asked me if I was just beating him out of the gym or if I was flaking ... I sooooooo wantedt to say "of coarse I'm beating you out of the gym ... wondering where you've been" ... but no! darn it ... truth prevails ... so tomorrow a.m. ... back to the gym ... for integrity sake ;-)

I'm so excited ... I met with a beautiful bride to be and her honey, Megan and Derek, this weekend ... we hit it off right away ... anyway, they are going to be getting married at Emipre Mine in Grass Valley ... oh it is going to be beautiful! And I'm excited .. they live in San Francisco so I said ... we've got to do your engagement session in San Francisco ... I've got my head full of fun ideas! They agreed! I'm so thrilled!

I shot my favorite sweet potato, Freddy, and his family this weekend! This afternoon when I was going through the pictures ... I found myself smiling ... I tell you what ... they are such a happy family! It's such a joy to have such wonderful people in my life!

This job rocks! Thanks so much for all you guys ... I have the Best clients and friends!

Well, I'm off to bed at a decent hour tonight.... remember ... I've got to meet Chip at the gym!!!!
