WOW! What a day!

I had the craziest Saturday!!! Soccer games in the morning for the girls then off to shoot a wedding. Then after that I met up with my hubbie who was at a concert for the surf contest that our surf shop sponsored with Billabong. All that was announced was that Donavon Frankenreiter would be there with special guest. Well, the special guests were: Sugar Ray, Pennywise, Jackson Browne, G Love, Garcia and Honk (they were a big surf band in the 70's)! Pat O'Connell and Rob Muchado also played.
I was lucky enough to still have all my camera gear in the car. So I grabbed my camera and snapped a few.

I will post a few from the surf contest- (Both Jim Lindberg and G-Love surfed!!) tomorrow as well as a few from the wedding. I am just too tired to do it tonight!!

New Website Almost Ready to Go Live!!

Oh, I'm so close!! Just a few more tweeks to make!!

It's been an interesting last few days putting the whole thing together. Trying to figure out how I want to represent myself to the world is not an easy task! I would really appreciate it if you would leave me a comment here to let me know what you think!

I am in the process of putting together another blog with samples of my specialty items- things such as my book templates, card templates and examples of canvas prints. After your photo session you will be able to link over and take a look at items you can order for your photos. I will post as soon as it's done.

One thing I did notice as I was putting together galleries was my lack of maternity and newborn images. So if you know anyone who is expecting let them know I'm looking for clients. I plan to offer a 50% off session fee special and will be promoting it after the holidays. The offer will be valid from now until February 1st. There will be a bigger post after the holidays.

Could they get any cuter?

What a great shoot I had this afternoon! I thought the weather might be ugly- but it turned out great- a little cool, but a great So. Cal fall evening! I thought the kids might be a bit wild from being inside all day at school (those 4 or 5 rain drops we got this afternoon can close a playground here). But I had another nice surprise. The kids were great!

These two were so cute and so sweet and so cooperative! And those eyes! I have a thing for eyes and these two both had incredible eyes!

And they were not only nice to me but to each other! It is so awesome to see a brother and sister who really like each other! My brother and I were always at each other's throats.

Here are a few quick "sneak peaks":

A true belly laugh!
