I've been in a photography rut. It happens. I've experienced it enough times in my journey to not fear it. I actually embrace it. Many times I'm typed the url address of my website and looked around at all the pretty pictures, but didn't feel an innate connection to the images. It was almost as if I was admiring the work of someone else. And that was ok with me because I knew that with time I would reconnect. And I have. In fact, if I really think about it. I haven't really stopped taking images. I shoot a lot still. But the difference has been that I've simply dumped the cards onto my hard drive and walked away. So now I am working through the pile of raw photos enjoying the discovery of a few gems.
So here we are, back in the summer of 2015- late July to be exact. A week in San Diego surrounded by sand, surf, the ones I love most in the world. The light was golden, as was our skin. The moods were light (as light as can be when you have a 3 year old in your pack), and the living was easy. I am looking forward to our next summer time get-away where our only job is to have fun. Until then, I have these photos.
I love my mom dearly. I am not always the most patient or graceful daughter. She is patient with me though and accepts me completely.
Sabrina is one of my closest friends in the whole wide world. I love this girl to death. She is my sister.
Winter has officially arrived. I've been following the heavy, heavy snowstorms back east. Isn't it a bit early for all this?
Fair warning: This post is more personal than most of my postings. And I'm feeling some kind of way about it. But not awkward enough to not post it.
Our second day began with a whole lot of nothin'. We spent the better part of the morning in our PJs making paper airplanes.
I talk a lot about storytelling sessions and lifestyle photography. People often ask me how that type of photography session differs from your average family photo shoot.
As parents who work outside the home, it's always a special treat to have the opportunity to spend extended amounts of time with our children.
It's been a very busy summer. We've traveled, had our firstborn graduate from preschool and start Kindergarten, a five year old birthday party and all the wonderful adventures in between it all.
Cooking does not come natural to me. Actually, I didn't start cooking regularly until I had children.
I haven't blogged in awhile. I've been busy shooting, and enjoying the beautiful spring weather in the Bay Area.
