Captured blessings

Hello everyone!

I created a new blog called Captured Blessings. I started it because I find that I let life go by so fast. Check it out. I am thankful to everyone that takes the time to read my blog. Have a great day!
Yesterday I went to a get together with some of the people from the photography board I am on. The weather was gloomy but it turned out nice. Here are a few pics from the day. This is Ricardo's son taking a picture of Aiden sleeping.

Here is Ricardo posing. I told him to pretend he was in action. I wasn't thinking about that kind of action.
Here is the group.
A pic of Emily James. Love her Kermit shirt
Here is Carey enjoying her Chipotle. Thanks Carey for setting this whole thing up!

This was such a fun family! My old neighbors from Arizona were in town on vacation with her family and I got to hang out with them while they were here. We did a family shoot in Coronado.
The pics turned out pretty good considering, they were taken at noon(with the most harsh sun ever) and there were 14 people. The shoot was originally scheduled for 5:30 but the guys had to watch the Sun's game at that time.
What a fun family.
I had a great time with you all! Thanks for including me in your day!

Isn't this shot fun? It was so difficult coordinating this with so many people.
Jen, I am so happy I got to see you guys and meet your family.
Thanks for lunch and for all the laughing. I really did have a blast! :)

Mother's Day Wedding

I spent my first Mother's Day second shooting a wedding with my friend Masen. I had a great time. The venue was awesome, the couple gorgeous. All in all, a great first mother's day. Here is Masen working his photo magic.

Tidbits from the boy's
Love those shoes
What a beautiful couple
Glowing bride
Their cake was fabulous

I love how the light hit her in this photo
Isn't she cute?

Yesterday I shot the band The Last Revival. They are an up and coming group that was a lot of fun to shoot. Lots of energy and silliness involved. You can tell this band is tight knit.

I know they won't use this last shot, but I really loved how it captured Sammy in mid air.

-There are lots of GREAT shots to choose from. These are just a few for the band to see.
Had lots of fun with you guys. See you soon!

Four babies....ADORABLE!!! Check out some cute pics on Aiden's blog here

No smiles, just this face. What a cutie. I love this little dude! Aiden has transitioned well with the move. He has been a little crankier than usual but I think he might be teething. There are a few more pics up on his blog here.
I am hoping to get out and take some beach pics soon. Until then, have a blessed week!

Edited.... These pictures look very orange on my monitor. They aren't. Hopefully they don't look that way on your screen. Just had to point out they look great on my one computer, but bad on the other. Thanks :)

On the Friday before we moved, my friends and I got together. We met at my dear friend Ruby's house for pictures. Then we headed to Macaroni Grill, then off to dancing. I had so much fun.

This is me and Ruby. It's funny how we met. She came into the scrapbook store I was working at and wanted a scrapbook done of her Italy trip. I did about 3 other books for her. We just clicked. She is such a special person to me. Thank you for everything Ruby! You are very special to me!
Ruby's husband Mike took these group shots. The top one is where they are sticking their tongue's out at me for moving.

This is Casey. I worked with her. SHe is a very sweet person. Aiden sure did love playing with her.

This is my dear, dear friend Brianna. What would I have done without B ? Brianna has been there for me through most everything. She is such a rock and has the best advice. I truly don't know if living in Arizona would have been the same without her. She also makes the best chocolate chip cookies! I love you B!!
This is Alana. She was the owner of the scrapbook store I worked at. They became like my second family. Thank you for always being so kind to me Alana!
This is Taira, Alana's sister. She is so funny. Taira can brighten any room and certainly make you laugh. I am going to miss you !
Everyone that I met in Arizona is special. They all contributed to my life. Without them I would not be the person I am. Living in Arizona, I learned to truly rely on myself, my husband and God. We moved there knowing no one, and I leave with wonderful friends that will always be with me. I know it may sound silly but it's true.
I have grown personally, more than I could have imagined. These people helped me do that.
I know I always talked about moving home to San Diego. I hope that everyone in Arizona truly knows that while I am home, they will always be in my heart.
Thank you for making me feel welcome in your homes and in your lives. You always have a place to stay here :)
Love to you all
