Meet Max

Yesterday I got to hang out with Max and his family and we had a great time. Max has an awesome backyard with great furniture ... so we had fun putting Max in all kinds of chairs! My favorite was in the bedroom with him M! Max is such a happy baby ... instantly when I met him my heart was warmed by his sweet smile ... and lots and lots more sweet smiles that followed! He is such a sweetheart and his parents were super too!

back to school

Last Wednesday Isabel got to host the family to her back to school night and she was so excited! She was so nervous ... it was really cute. The Kindergarten class was giving a concert and she really had the jitters like I've never seen before ... so to take her mind off it a bit ... she got some lip gloss on ... sassy shoes and we went out front to do a mini shoot ... above is a collage ... I just love these! I threw the feet in because she just loves ... I mean loves those shoes and they do not look comfortable in the least and yet she wears them everywhere!!!

Haley and Jeff

Oh my ... I had such a good time hangin' with Haley and Jeff! They had a vision of incorporating local public murals in their engagement session and it was so fun! Sacramento is so colorful ... it was really great to capture that color and their love!

If you click on the image above you can see a slideshow from their engagement session!

I also had the honor of meeting Finn ... their most awesome cat and I'm in love ... I had to come home and tell my cat Harris I've been cheating because Finn was just too cool!

He, of coarse, got to get photographed too!

Hot Spring Nights

Oh my goodness! Let me just say it was so HOT Friday! Not only the weather ... but Torrey and Calli are so cute, fun and loving ... I had such a good time photographing them Friday ... while we were melting!

We started off grabbing a cocktail and then we were off to brave the heat. One of the highlights was as we were walking by the train tracks we heard the train, we were sorta joking about it and then there it was ... I nabbed a few as they smooched and the train passed ...... so romantic.

Click on the image about to view a slide show of my favorites from the evening .... Enjoy! I can't wait for the beautiful wedding in September!

Day with Thomas

This weekend was a blast! We took the kids to see Thomas the train and go for a ride ... it was so fun! I love surprising the kids ... so we didn't tell them what we were doing and when we pulled up to the event Mason was so excited! Soooo cool it brought tears to my eyes! Anyway, here are some images from the day.

drip ... drip ... drip

I've been crazy busy this last week, not only with engagement sessions and cutie pie session, but just life in general ... images to come soon ... I promise. I had to post this one of Ava ... I get to visit her every 3 months and I just love this one!

... she's sooooo telling me ... "that's a wrap!" ... I love it!

Today, though, was one of those days that just rocked! I haven't blogged in a while and so I thought that I would tonight to add to my list of good things today! I got so much accomplished and Tony did too! He installed my drip system for around the pool today and I am super excited! I'm heading to the nursery to plant shop tomorrow for sure!!! I've had my eye on several unique plants for some time now and I have a feeling like I'm going to go crazy! I love plants ... well, honestly, I love to go to places like Sea World or Disneyland where the plants are so well manicured and dream that one day I will have that in my backyard ... a girls gotta dream!


A while back I mentioned the great book The Go-Giver and the first law of stratospheric success which is the law of value "your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment" ... I bought another copy last week because I gave my copy to my good friend Barbara and I wanted to share the second law ... the law of compensation "Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them" ... how true that is. Not just in monetary income, i think that is a bit obvious ... but emotional income. I've really been thinking about that a lot lately ...

Oh yes, and one more cool thing for today ... today my brother Scott called me and told me he loved me and really appreciated me. I'm sure I've mentioned it before ... my brother is one of my very best friends ... we talk every day on the phone ... we alway say I love you ... but today it just made my whole day ... maybe even month that he called just to say I love you ... that was so cool!

Well, off to get the kids in bed and do a little reading....
