Back from Vaca

Just got home from a week at the beach. I actually saw the sun a couple days in the row! Every time I go visit I fall in love all over again. Jason and I have been exploring the beaches in his area that he is in now. SO fun! I also have found some craft stores that I have to saw I visit more then I should have but I love it. Already scheduling family portraits on the beach this year... so excited! Even if you can't make it the beach this year I hope you can get a break and get away when you need it!

The Best of 2009

Just put together some of favorites from 2009. Not going to lie I cried, I've been through a lot in 2009... being apart of these families through loosing family members, friendships and seeing new born babies into this world.... makes you rethink about the year and what can happens in just a short time.

Smith Finished Portrait

Remember the CUTE Smith family? So many people have told me how much they love the Smith family portraits... so everyone must be agreeing with me on their cuteness. Last week I delivered their finished portrait for their home. Enjoy Smith family!

Cerna Family

I love a family that makes themselves laugh. The Cerna family was CRACK'N me up, I loved it! They were a blast. It was also amazing that they all got together, the emergency room, casts and surgeries weren't stopping this family from giving Grandma what she really wanted for Christmas. I was so proud for making it to the studio and smiling through it all. Great Job Cerna Family.

Christmas Surprises

So months leading up till Christmas in my biz is really hard for me cause people do "Surprise" Portraits and I'm the worst at surprises cause I'm just so excited I have hard time keeping them a a secret. It's fun but I end up dodge the person that is about to receive the gifts so that slip up. So here is a catch up on sessions that we're a special gift under the tree.
This session was a surprise for Dorothy and Elmer's Children. Jordan had a hard time keeping the secret of what he did at Grandma's house over the weekend. As far as I know he was able to keep the secret for weeks.
For Susie getting her portrait created is like going to the dentist. She had this portrait created for her husband, mother and children. From what I heard there were some tears on Christmas. Great job Susie.. this portrait is beautiful of you and I hope we have over come the whole fear thing. In the long run I think it was all worth it. They will enjoy this portrait of you for many years to come.
The Gimenez Family started a new family tradition... getting their portraits done annually for their Christmas card. Sounds great to me, they are such a joy to photograph and be around. Michael is the cutest little guy... what a ham he was posing it up. What a blessing he is!
