Lakeside

Alright Ladies and Gentleman (ha, ha) ...I am not making any promises, but don't expect another post for awhile. I am almost caught up after this session post (beside one wedding I shot last Friday). But I am going to go enjoy Christmas. I am so excited to be going to the mountains for Christmas and have a WHITE CHRISTMAS! WooHoo Vacation!!! "Vacation ...all I ever wanted, vacation...happy to get away." Okay I have no idea if those are the right words to that song but oh well. I would totally lose on the Singing Bee TV Show.
Alrighty, so this family has been a dream to work with. They have four little wonderful boys, who love life and are happy. I took pictures for them a couple months ago right after the birth of their newest addition. This time we headed to the lake and had so much fun! By the way, mom picked out some great colors, and everyone looked amazing. Also, I am trying to use photoshop again to add the frame, logo, resize, etc and everytime I do some of the pictures look a little wonky to me, just ignore (I can't figure out how to compress pictures for the web?)

Personal

OmGosh, I am gonna post something personal. I know I usually stick to photography, but videography is related. So yesterday was my husband's birthday. And thanks to some great recommendations, I got him the Flip Mino Video Camcorder. If you love the ease of great products such as the iphone, you will love the Flip Video. It is a pocket size camcorder. The video and audio are great. But the best feature is the built in software, which makes it super easy to plug right into your TV and view, or right into your computer and view, save, and share your videos, and make cool movie mixes! Good stuff!!!
Since you can go snowboarding for free at Mountain High and other resorts on your birthday, Jake went snowboarding yesterday and took Brock. It is Brock's 8th Birthday on Sunday, so it was a birthday present for both of them. Mind you Brock has never been snowboarding before so I thought he did pretty good, check this out!!!

Happy Birthday Jake and Brock!!!

KREATIV BLOGGER AWARD

What an unexpected surprise! My friend (Aja...we go way back) nominated me for a KREATIV BLOGGER AWARD. Let me tell you a little about Aja...she is the girl who is always happy, her smile and eyes glee, just being in her presence, you can feel the love spread, love this girl. And though I haven't seen her in...ouch, over a decade, I get a slice of her every time I read her BLOG. She is always witty with her posts, creative in her scrap booking, and her photography, a phenomenal wife and mother.
So on with it...I'd like to pass the award on to 5 more KREATIV BLOGGERS!
Photobucket

1. Jessica Claire - Wedding Photographer. Really don't bother checking out her blog. It is just full of beautiful, and amazing photographs that will cause you to spiral into a deep depression. I mean, who can every achieve this level of greatness at a mear age of 29 years old? Serisouly though, her photographs have been an inspiration for me as I delve into photography.
2. Angie Monson - Child Photographer. Okay, I know, another photographer. Well when it comes to blogs, I can't help but gravitate towards the eye candy. And Angie from Simplicity Photography does not disappoint. Her style is totally different from mine, but I think it helps me to grow as a photographer, as I look to expand my abilities.
3. Melissa Jill - Wedding Photographer. Okay so her style is simple, very classic in my opinion. I love her work and also admire her other endeavors. She supports good causes including the fight against Autism. She is an inspiration for me.
4. Christopher Becker - Wedding Photographer. Becker is the KREATIV creator of The [b] school blog and The [b] school community, an online school for photographers. It is a unique social referral network, forum, club, booking calendar...just a cool way for photographers to connect.
5. Denis Reggie - Wedding Photojournalist. I love to say the word photojournalism. Denis Reggie is a pioneer in the industry, leading the way for other photojournalists. I am in love with photojournalism and his images are worth 1,000 words. Oh crap, I don't think he has a blog, but you can check out his website, oh well, he is still KREATIV in my book.
5 (again). MCP Actions - Photoshop Blog. I love MCP Actions. She has amazing tutorials on how to use photoshop, she always has fun contests, she does online interviews with successful photographers, etc. She is the go-to-girl on where to get the best stuff and the best prices, etc. My favorite things are her video tutorials explaining photoshop techniques step by step!

The sun'll come out tomorrow...

I often break out into song when I start a blogging. Blogging is a lot of work so I must be really excited to complete another post. Well the weather has been cloudy and I LOVE it! It makes for great photos and living here in SoCal, I always know that "The sun'll come out tomorrow"! Plus this lovely young woman is "Annie"...how can I not think of that song! On to the pictures...

BLOG LOVE

I know you guys must be thirsty for a post...anyone listening out there? Well I doubt it but just in case you are checking in for some cool photos...YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT (a little longer)! I am bogged down right now, it is crunch time for me. I keep thinking the busy Christmas Season is almost over but it keeps going and going. AND I LOVE IT! I keep thinking I can't wait til it slows down in January, and at the same time, I don't want it to. I am having so much fun photographing families, seniors, children and another wedding next week. This has been and continues to be an exciting adventure for me. With all of that, it is Jake's 34th Birthday next week, Brock's 8th Birthday a couple days before Christmas, which means a Baptism to plan and I still haven't done my stinkin' Christmas Cards. So leave a comment, some BLOG LOVE, and let me know you are still listening. Happy Holidays!

Picture Perfect

Okay besides this family being picture perfect, I have to tell you all a little secret. After I torture Dad with taking photographs for at least an hour, my favorite part is when I tell him he gets to makeout with his wife now, so I can take some pictures of them. Sometimes I get blank stares, sometimes I get a nice little peck on the lips (well I don't, but his wife does), and sometimes I hit the jackpot. I love it when the couple will do whatever I say. TRUST THE PHOTOGRAPHER! So between some steamy kiss pictures (not to be disclosed on my blog), I was able to capture these sweet moments between husband and wife.

Flash

Just thought I'd "FLASH" you Kristen with one of the pictures from this past weekend. Blog posts with multiple large pictures is very time consuming and I have other clients to proof first, but I know you are checking the blog. Hope this holds you over for another day or two.

Goodnight!

Green with Envy

I took modeling shots for these beautiful girls several weeks ago. But I am so glad I got a chance to do a session for the whole family. It was a real quick session, as we feared the rain. And sure enough...5 minutes after we were done, it was coming down pretty heavy! I love these pictures, they are just screaming Christmas Time!!!
