the happiest place on earth

I think it’s obvious that we had an amazing time on our San Diego vacation. Aside from the warmth, lack of snow, and best company, it was the perfect April getaway. San Diego has always been one of my favorite cities to be in – my happy place. This trip was nothing short of that. We love you Joe and Alyson!! Thanks for making our trip so much fun!

stopping the selfie

headshots-paI love a good selfie as much as the next girl, but let’s be real. I love a good head shot even more! That’s right. Eliminate your selfie production and let me photograph you instead! I’ve been shooting head shots like crazy over the past few months and am LOVING every minute of it. I was just in Palo Alto and had the pleasure to not only enjoy the sun and scenery of that beautiful city, but also to capture some of my beautiful friends (above). Whether you’re auditioning for The Bachelor (yes, I’m serious), need to get your face up on your new business website or just want to replace the selfie on all of your social media profiles, I’m your girl!

little people

Between Friday night and Monday I filled many hours with the little people I love. Addison spent the weekend in the cities for a “sister weekend” (which included spa night and garage sales) and on Monday she graduated from preschool. It seems totally crazy that Addison will be in kindergarten next year! She was just Finn’s size! Before we know it, little Finner will be walking in preschool cap to grab his diploma. Being big sister and Auntie to two of the most adorable little people makes me feel pretty darn happy.

pssst … to keep up with the Stoks, check out their own spot on the world wide web here.

happy havalah

I have been photographing Havah since she was just a few weeks old – by far my best client! Her photos always turn out pretty darn cute because, let’s be honest – she’s adorable. This shoot was a little different than previous times, as Havah is now able to full-on run (even in her gorgeous blue dress)! She is quite a mover!! Even though I broke a sweat running around with her, we definitely snapped some keepers and had a great time. I have never seen a little girl smile so much.

Another favorite that I failed to get a photo of was the DELICIOUS brunch my dear friend’s Rose and John (Havah’s parents) took us to after the shoot. We sat down at Spoonriver and indulged. It was marvelous. If you haven’t been, I’d HIGHLY recommend the food – tastes wonderful and is all organic!
